Who can make money selling stickers?

It’s so easy for so many to get started and sell stickers! You might want to make a little extra cash to subsidize your sticker-buying habit, make it a part-time income or even a full-time business.

Or, perhaps you want to add a line of stickers to sell to your existing shop.

Or are you a graphic designer who wants to find a new way to sell your beautiful designs?

That said, you don’t need to be an artist to make and sell stickers – I wasn’t and I’ve sold thousands of them! You can still create stickers by using pre-made templates (I sell them here) or by hiring an artist or designer to create stickers for you.

When it comes to finding a place to sell stickers, you can choose from Etsy, Redbubble, Shopify, WooCommerce and more.

The 3 Types of Planner Stickers

Who knew there were so many different kinds of planner stickers! Here are the main three:

Printed Planner Stickers

If you’re selling printed planner stickers, you’ll be designing, printing, cutting and posting them to your customers.

Printable Planner Stickers

For printable stickers, after you design them, you’ll send your customers particular files so they can print and cut them themselves at home.

However, you won’t send them your original files! Firstly, they’ll be very large in size and secondly, they’ll be able to edit and adjust the sticker designs – which can cause issues when using them.
