How to Make Planner Stickers
I’ve been making planner stickers for a few years and I design my own stickers using Silhouette Studio. I started with the basic edition but have also used both the Business and designer editions.
Being able to make my own planner sticker range has saved me money and helped me start my own shop, Paper Planner Club and print my own stickers!
In the beginning, I had no idea that a sticker maker machine even existed and it baffled me on how people could make and cut them! I thought there must be a magical sticker printer and cutter machine. Then I discovered the Silhouette.
The Silhouette isn’t a sticker printing machine as such, it’s art and sticker design software to design your own planner stickers and a sticker cutting machine to cut them after they’re printed.
It isn’t just sticker maker software, it does SO much more.
I find the software really easy to use and have self-taught myself how to, using online tutorials.
I find YouTube a brilliant place for finding quick tutorials on how to create stickers shapes and patterns.
For how to make stickers at home, you should definitely check out Inspired Blush as she has playlists full of how to make stickers on the computer that are so easy to follow.
Once you have created a printable 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!

How to Print Planner Stickers
Next up – how to print your own stickers at home.
When it comes to how to print own stickers, I use a Canon Pixma printer. The quality is pretty good and it prints quickly.
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.

Where to Buy Sticker Paper
Want to know what kind of sticker paper do Etsy shops use? The printable sticker paper I use is from…!
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.
How to Use Planner Stickers
Printable stickers are a great way to both organise and decorate your planner.
A weekly or monthly printable planner sticker kit includes stickers you can use to:
- write To Do lists on
- highlight appointments
- schedule events
- schedule birthdays
- add reminders to buy, clean or get things done!
- record and track your habits and goals
- plan ahead
There are also many back to school printable planner stickers to log your:
- study times
- school holidays
Workwise, perhaps your stickers can help you to plan for:
- your To Do list
- phone calls
Can you see how using stickers can really help to organise all aspects of your life?
The great benefit of printable planner stickers is that you only need to print and cut what you need. You will waste less ink, time and money this way – it’s so much more cost effective!
How to Cut Planner Stickers
Most printables 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’m going to tell you how you can download printable planner stickers from my Shop and how to cut them.
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 of the printables so you can choose the one you want to use:
- Planner sticker PDF
- 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.
I can’t advise you on how to use a Cricut as I haven’t myself but I believe it’s very similar.
Summary of How to Make Printable Planner Stickers
I hope the tips above have helped you how to make your own planner stickers.
Learning how to make your own stickers at home will definitely save you money but is also so much fun! You might unlock a creative side that you didn’t know you had!
Before you invest in any of the equipment above, really think about how often you will print and cut your own stickers. I wouldn’t recommend investing in these unless you plan to use them a lot.
