How to Design and Make Your Own Transfer Stickers

With transfer stickers, you never have to worry about backing, they have super vibrant colors and awesome designs! They literally demand to be seen and admired. This makes them perfect for elegant designs and for advertising your business or side hustle.

What Are Transfer Stickers?

Transfer stickers are a way of having many individual pieces to a sticker that need to stay together as a design. There are three layers to a transfer sticker: paper protecting the sticker, the vinyl sticker itself, and the protective backing.

What Makes Them Different?

The main difference between transfer and other stickers is that they have no backing applied to the surface. Once the sticker has been carefully placed on the surface, you can peel it away, and only leave the individual pieces.

Steps to Make Your Own Transfer Sticker

Step 1

Create your design for your sticker. A unique element to designing transfer stickers is making sure your pieces are large enough. A good rule of thumb is that you should be able to fit a .08mm circle into the solid parts.

Step 2

Print out your design. It’s always a good idea to do a practice print on a regular piece of paper.

Step 3

Then remove the protective paper and any extra vinyl away.

Step 4

Start putting the sticker on the desired surface. Be sure to be patient and careful when placing the sticker on. Start with one corner and then slowly move across the backing to the other side.

Step 5

Remove the backing of the sticker and enjoy the new look!
