Want a cool and cheap way to promote your business? Try stickers!
Stickers are pretty easy to make and can be an important part of your company’s branding efforts.
Here are seven easy steps to turn your logo into a sticker — all you need is the file, a printer and sticker paper.
Step 1. Make a plan.
Before starting any design or project, it’s a good idea to sketch out a plan.
Decide on the version of the logo you want, what colors you will use, what type of finish you are looking for, etc. Also, purchase the sticker paper at any office supply store.
Step 2. Open the logo file.
Open the logo you have saved on your computer in the image editor of your choice.
TIP: If you want to use clear sticker paper and have a transparent background, you will need a PNG file rather than a JPEG.
Step 3. Confirm the resolution.
To be sure you have at least 300 DPI resolution, click on File and Properties. In the window that pops up, select the Details tab and look for the resolution.
Step 4. Open a Word document.
Open a Word Document, select the Page Layout tab, click Margins and select Narrow.
Step 5. Insert a logo.
Select the Insert tab and click on Picture. Insert your logo file, size it to the proportions you would like to print and place as many on the page that will fit.
Step 6. Print the document.
Click on the Windows symbol in the upper left-hand corner and select Print. Click on Properties and make sure you are set to print a photo in color and on high-quality paper.
Step 7. Cut your stickers.
It is important to either use a professional paper cutter or a ruler to get a straight cut. A crooked cut will look amateur.
After you print and distribute, you can celebrate!
Now that you have your logo stickers, you can chose to print them yourself or use a well-known printing service. Distribute them to as many people as you can — customers, friends, family and employees.
The more stickers you can distribute, the more likely they will be recognized by potential clients.
