How To Make Stickers Using Our Templates

Whether you’re a whizz at design, or a total beginner we’ve got a number of Sticker templates to help. Simply select your Sticker product, scroll down for templates, chose your file type and press download.

Some important questions to ask yourself before exporting your design:

  • Have I added bleed? The bleed area should extend 3mm from the edge of your finished image. Your design should then be extended into this area to avoid any white lines after printing. If you need help setting it up, check out our simple video tutorial here.
  • Is my text too close to the edge? Make sure to keep any text at least 3mm away from the edge of your design.
  • Have I saved out my artwork as CMYK? To ensure your colour choice perfectly matches your vision, you’ll need to save your images as CMYK, (RGB is the best colour mode for digital work).
  • Have I double checked my exported design? All Sticker artwork should be exported as a PDF, JPEG or PNG file for upload.

If you need a hand with your artwork, just give us a call on 0800 840 1430, chat with us live on-site or drop an email to
