With Avery, learning how to make stickers has never been easier. If you need them for your business and need durable, professional stickers, try ordering from our professional printing service, Avery WePrint. Or if you want, you can print them yourself with our blank labels by the sheet or our packaged in-store products. No matter what option you choose, you have three amazing ways to make stickers.

Below we include steps for both designing and ordering custom die-cut stickers and kiss-cut stickers, or printing your own sticker sheets from home.

Die-Cut Stickers

Step 1: Upload artwork

To order die-cut stickers, visit our sticker page and choose Custom Shape from the dropdown menu.

A pop-up window will appear for you to upload your artwork. Simply choose the image file from your computer or drag and drop it onto the screen.

Kiss-Cut Stickers

Step 1: Choose template or upload artwork

To order kiss-cut stickers, visit our sticker page and choose the shape you want and your quantity. Then click Start Designing.

Choose whether you want to personalize one of our free templates or you can upload your own image.

Step 2: Customize your design

Whether you choose a blank template or a predesigned template, you can personalize the content and make it your own. Rearrange the design if you wish, add a personal photo or graphic, and enter your custom text.

To customize the text, click the text area and type in your new text. Use the menu on the left to choose a different typeface, type size, or color. The navigator on the right side of the screen makes it rearrange or delete text boxes and images.

Step 3: Edit and save your design

Make any changes you want to your sheet and then click Preview and Print. Then select Get PDF to Print. We recommend you save the PDF to your account or your computer for future use. Once you’ve saved your PDF, you’re ready to print. You can order blank labels by the sheet or buy our in-store retail packs online.

Step 4: Print & cut out your stickers

Please make sure and read all the tips about printer settings before you begin printing. It’s always a good idea to print a test sheet on a blank piece of paper to ensure everything is printed the way you want.

Once your sheet has printed the way you want, simply cut out your stickers and apply.

  1. I am having a terrible time trying to figure out how to print a customized label. I have created my label in Projects. I am using template 94513 (6 circular labels per page).

    I follow instructions up to the point where I am instructed to click on Print. It doesn’t print. Al;l I get is a hype for Adobe Acrobat Reader (which I already have on my computer(.

    How do I print a customized label?

    1. Hi Michael,
      When you go to Preview & Print and select Get PDF to Print you should see the option to either Open or Download the PDF of your project. If you have the Download PDF option, the PDF will download to the computer and the download should appear in the upper right corner of your browser indicated by a downward pointed arrow. If you are still having trouble, please call our Customer Care Team at (800)462-8379. They can share screens with you to see exactly what’s happening when you try to print.
