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.

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.

It is important to either use a professional paper cutter or a ruler to get a straight cut. A crooked cut will look amateur.

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.

        Ruby, in this article, we used MS Word 2009.

        For your second question, no, you do not have to use MS Word. There are a number of design programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator that are highly recommended for any graphic design projects. However, if you do not have those programs either, many of the online sticker printers offer online design tools and templates that are easy to use.

      Hi Jiao! We recommend buying an Epson Workforce WF-100 Inkjet Printer if you plan on doing a lot of sticker and photo printing. Hope this helps!
