Week twenty-one

SKILL BUILDING: Making Stickers!

Have you ever drawn something awesome in Procreate and thought to yourself, this would make such a cool sticker…but how???

There are many ways to produce stickers, from DIY to professional manufacturing. In this new tutorial mini-series, I’ll teach you three different methods for making stickers: printing at home and cutting them out by hand, how to make stickers with Procreate and a Cricut machine, and all about ordering professionally printed stickers. I’ve also made a Sticker Resource Page with tips about setting up sticker sheets, outlines and cutlines, great places to order your stickers, sticker vocabulary, and so much more!

The first video about printing and cutting stickers by hand is live now! The other two videos will be coming out within the next week, with lots more information and tips on the resource page to come.

Week 21: Creative Hobbies
