Use an inkjet or laser printer to print your sticker design on sticker paper, or self-adhesive laminating sheets as they are sometimes called. After giving the ink sufficient time to dry, cut out the stickers using a paper cutter or a sharp pair of scissors, and they're ready to use.

To make images for your stickers, use graphics editing software, such as Photoshop or GIMP to create the design. For economy, arrange several stickers on a single sheet but leave enough room around each individual sticker, so that you can easily cut them out later.

For designs that use memorable phrases instead of graphics, you may choose to use a word-processing program, such as Microsoft Word, to lay the text out. Make designs more eye-catching by using special fonts and bright colors, and adjust the font size to make them stand out more.

After creating a design for the sticker sheet, print a test page out on ordinary paper. Check each individual sticker for errors, such as wrong colors or misspellings, and make the appropriate changes until you've achieved a result you are happy with. This allows you to save on sticker paper, which typically costs a lot more than plain paper.

When printing the design on sticker paper, feed just one sheet into the printer at a time. This minimizes the chance that the printer might draw in more than one sticker sheet and cause a jam due to the thickness of the paper.
