Why You Should Make Canva Stickers for Planners

Planner products are popular on Etsy, and DIY stickers are in high demand. By creating a template that customers can customize and print on their own, you can offer a unique and budget-friendly product.

As we all know, planning and organizing our daily lives can be overwhelming at times. Between juggling work, personal obligations, and social commitments, it can be easy to feel like we’re drowning in a sea of to-do lists and appointments. Fortunately, planner stickers can be a game-changer when it comes to making our planning more fun, efficient, and organized. And with Canva, creating your own custom planner stickers has never been easier.

Of course, you can also create Canva stickers to sell online too – so these benefits are for you OR your potential customers.

Here are some pros of creating stickers in Canva:

Personalized Stickers

One of the main advantages of making planner stickers in Canva is the ability to personalize them according to your own preferences and style. With Canva’s vast library of design elements, you can create stickers that reflect your personality, your favorite colors and fonts, or your brand identity. This level of customization ensures that your planner stickers are unique to you and that you’re more likely to use them consistently in your planning.

Save Time

By creating your own planner stickers in Canva, you can save time and streamline your planning process. Instead of spending time searching for the perfect stickers to suit your needs, you can create your own functional and decorative stickers that cater to your specific planning needs. This means that you can spend less time planning and more time doing the things you love.

Save Money

Purchasing pre-made planner stickers can be expensive, especially if you have a specific style or theme in mind. By making your own planner stickers in Canva, you can save money and create as many stickers as you need without breaking the bank. Plus, with the option to print your stickers at home, you can save even more money on shipping and handling fees.

Get Creative!

Making your own planner stickers in Canva is a great way to tap into your creative side and have some fun with your planning. Whether you want to create colorful headers for your weekly spreads, decorative icons for your habit tracker, or motivational quotes for your goal-setting pages, Canva provides the tools and inspiration you need to unleash your creativity and design stickers that are both functional and beautiful.


Another benefit of making planner stickers in Canva is the flexibility it provides in terms of sticker size, shape, and design. Whether you prefer small and simple stickers or larger and more intricate ones, Canva allows you to create stickers in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit your needs. Additionally, you can design stickers for specific occasions or themes, such as holidays, travel, or fitness, to add an extra layer of fun and functionality to your planning.

There are many reasons why people should make planner stickers in Canva. From personalization and time-saving to cost-effectiveness, creativity, and flexibility, making your own planner stickers in Canva can enhance your planning experience and make it more enjoyable and efficient.

Step 1: Set up your Canva account

First things first, if you haven’t already, create a Canva account. Canva is a free graphic design tool that you can use to create all sorts of designs, including stickers. Once you’ve created an account, log in and let’s get started!

Step 2: Choose your Sticker Size

The first thing you’ll want to do is decide what size stickers you want to create. You can choose from a variety of sizes, including 1″ round stickers, 2″ x 2″ square stickers, or even 3″ x 4″ rectangular stickers. Once you’ve decided on your size, create a new design in Canva and select the custom dimensions option. Enter the dimensions of your sticker and hit “Create design.”

Step 3: Design your Stickers

Now it’s time to get creative! Use Canva’s design tools to create your perfect sticker. You can add text, images, and even shapes to your design. The possibilities are endless! If you’re not sure where to start, try searching for sticker templates in Canva’s design library for some inspiration.

Step 4: Duplicate your Design

Once you’ve designed your sticker, you’ll want to duplicate it so that you can print multiple stickers on one sheet. To do this, simply select your design and hit “Duplicate” as many times as you want stickers on your sheet.

Step 5: Export your Design

Now that you’ve designed your sticker sheet, it’s time to export it so that you can print it. To do this, select “Download” in the top right corner of your screen and choose the file type you want to export it as. We recommend exporting it as a PDF for the best print quality.

Step 6: Print your Stickers

Once you’ve exported your design, it’s time to print your stickers! You can print your stickers at home using your own printer or take your design to a print shop to have them printed professionally. When printing, make sure to use sticker paper that’s compatible with your printer for the best results.

Step 7: Cut your Stickers

After your stickers have been printed, it’s time to cut them out. Use a pair of scissors or a craft knife to cut out each individual sticker. Be careful not to cut into the design of your sticker!

And there you have it – your very own DIY Canva sticker template!
