How to Make Printable Planner Stickers – before you start

1. Get the right tools

Firstly, you’ll need to invest in a great cutting machine and software to make planner stickers at home.

I recommend either the Silhouette or Cricut and I design my own stickers using Silhouette Studio or Cricut Design Space.

You can buy a Silhouette Portrait here in Australia, here in the US and here in the UK.

You can buy a Cricut here. You can also buy a Cricut here in Australiahere in the US and here in the UK.

Silhouette and Cricut machines and software are both art and sticker design software to design your own planner stickers and a sticker cutting machine to cut them after they’re printed.

Once you have created a planner sticker template once, you can also reuse it many times. For example, I have created a basic Weekly Kit template and simply change up the colours and patterns to create a whole new kit!

2. Learn how to design stickers

To design your stickers, open up either Silhouette Software or Cricut Design Space and you can follow their instructions to create sticker shapes. Remember, you can also sign up for my How to Make Planner Stickers eCourse where I teach you the step-by-step guide to make, print and cut a multitude of stickers.

Measure your planner to work out what size you want each sticker to be and then change the measurements of your stickers in the software so that they will exactly fit.

You can then add colour and patterns to your stickers to make them unique!

I love to design my stickers to make my planner pretty and also to stay more organised. All of the stickers I design can be found in my Etsy store, Paper Planner Club.

3. Print your stickers

When it comes to how to print own stickers, I don’t know if there’s a best printer for stickers as such – so many will work just fine. The best printer for sticker printing might depend on if you want to use an Ink Jet or Laser printer. I’m currently using a Canon inkjet and it’s doing a great job.

If you have found the best printer for printing planner stickers, share in the comments!

4. Find the best sticker paper

Want to know what kind of sticker paper do Etsy shops use? I share my unicorn premium matte sticker paper with you in my course! It’s the best sticker paper for planner stickers I have used and has 5-star feedback from my customers.

Sticker printer paper isn’t cheap so if you’re on a tight budget, you can always print your own stickers on blank paper and use glue. It’s time-consuming and a bit messy though!

However, it’s one option for how to make stickers without sticker paper.

5. Cut your stickers

Again, in my course I teach you how to cut planner stickers at home – and I share the mistakes I made in the early days so you can skip them.

Most printables sticker kits include paid or free printable planner stickers with cut files, as mentioned above. Some might have specific printable planner stickers for Cricut or Silhouettes but most can be cut with either, or by hand.

I send my printables in a Zip file with instructions on how to cut stickers. After you have unzipped the file, you’ll see it contains the following formats: Planner sticker PDF, PNG (for Cricut), JPG or FREE Silhouette Studio file showing cut lines.

It’s easy to print the bought or free printable planner stickers PDF version and cut the stickers out with scissors however I like to open the Silhouette version and print from there. I can then use my Silhouette portrait to cut the stickers using the cut file provided from whoever I’ve got the sticker files from.

You can buy a Silhouette Portrait here in Australia, here in the US and here in the UK.

You can buy a Cricut here. You can also buy a Cricut here in Australiahere in the US and here in the UK.
