FAQ: Printable Stickers

WHY PRINTABLE?

I live in Australia, most of my customers live in the USA and shipping is very expensive and takes a long time! I conducted a poll in this post and most of the feedback was that customers would not be willing to wait the amount of time it takes to deliver mail from Australia to the USA. Printable means I can offer the designs at a cheaper price than printed stickers and, once you purchase the file you can print the stickers as many time as you like for your personal use. If you run out of stickers just print another sheet… or 10😉 Printable files are like the gift that keeps on giving!

All of my sticker files are affordably priced and you get get a bargain if your purchase the Get it All sticker bundle!

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE THE STICKERS?

A sample of sticker designs are available in my Etsy store. All are available in the online store.

WHAT LABEL/STICKER PAPER SHOULD I USE?

You can buy full sheet label paper from:

Worldlabel (Worldwide but  expensive shipping to Australia)
Online Labels they even have metallic label paper (which I am dying to try!) (Worldwide but expensive shipping to Australia)
Office Depot (US only)
Amazon (Worldwide but expensive shipping to Australia)
Walmart (US only)
Officeworks (Australia only)
Staples (US and Australia)
Ebay (Worldwide)
Labelsbythesheet (US only)
Sheet Labels (US only)

And of course, Avery.

I have found that the ‘unofficial’ label paper (i.e. anything but Avery) is cheaper and works just the same! Most are compatible with both inkjet and laser printers but be sure to check before purchasing.

Matte sticker paper is easier to write on that Glossy. You can also purchase repositionable sticker paper.

I purchase my label paper off Ebay.

0.5 x 0.5″ square stickers fits 270 stickers per 8.5 x 11″ sheet. You can purchase full sheet re-positionale label paper for 30c a sheet or 0.001c per sticker! Shops selling printed and cut stickers charge $4 for around 30 stickers of the same size. You also need to pay shipping on top of that. And wait for them to arrive in the mail. With printable stickers you receive them within minutes of your purchase. An added bonus – the Australian Dollar is currently only buying around 75cUSD this means, because of the exchange rate, if you live in the USA these stickers are actually even cheaper! (I live in Australia)

WHAT ARE EDITABLE STICKERS?

Currently, the only editable stickers are the morning/day/night section titles.

EDITABLE PDF FILES:
– When you open the file there will be light blue boxes where you can type in your information (this will NOT remain light blue when printed).
– You can still print and hand-write on the sheets (the blue boxes won’t appear on your printed copy)
– The fillable font is helvetica in black
– For copyright protection, the layout of the documents, including existing text cannot be changed
– You CAN save information typed into the PDF. I recommend saving the original version as ‘blank’ if you would like to make multiple sticker sheets.
– You will need a computer (not an ipad or iphone) to open and edit PDF files.

__________________________________

FILE FORMAT

Most of the stickers come in 2 file format:

PDF: If it’s not already installed on your computer you will need to download it here (it’s free!). Note: You will need a computer to open and print PDF files.

JPG: this file format is compatible for use with your silhouette cutting machine and printing at home (print the sticker sheet/image as a full page photo)

HOW DO I PRINT THE STICKERS?

These instructions will work for any of the planner / calendar stickers available in my shop including:

  • 5 x 0.5” Square stickers
  • Erin Condren ‘Full Box’ stickers
  • 1 inch x 0.5 inch ‘write-on’ stickers

I am going to demonstrate using the 1.5inch x 0.5inch stickers. These stickers are formatted for printing onto these letter size sticker sheets so you can easily print them from home. Or you can just print onto normal copy paper or cardstock and use glue to adhere, more on that below.

As always I recommend doing a test print onto a piece of scrap paper before printing multiple sheets onto sticker paper.

Note that all printers are different. I am using a Canon printer – if you are using a different brand your printer menu may display a little differently. There are so many different types of printers out there I do not know how to use every printer so unfortunately I may not be able to help if you have problems printing. Please follow the step-by-step guide below if you are having difficulties. Want to consult your printer manual but can’t remember where you put it? See this website to view free printer manuals for any type of printer.

Printing the PDF File onto Letter Size Paper

1. Open the file. Go to the top left hand corner, press file and then print.

Printable calendar stickers - A4 size printing instructions - 1

2. The printer menu will open.

Make sure ‘actual size’ is selected then click on ‘properties’

Printable calendar stickers - US Letter size printing instructions 3

3. A new menu will open – change the page size to letter size

Printable calendar stickers - US Letter size printing instructions 4

I have not noticed a difference between printing on ‘standard’ and ‘high’ print quality settings

4. Press ‘OK’ to close that menu, then press ‘Print’

Printing the PDF File onto A4 Size Paper

If, like me, you live in Australia, you can still use these. The only change is the amount of white space around the design. The stickers are in no way affected and still print perfectly!:)

1. Open the file. Go to the top left hand corner, press file and then print.

Printable calendar stickers - A4 size printing instructions - 1

2. The printer menu will open.

Make sure ‘actual size’ is selected then click on ‘properties’

Printable calendar stickers - US Letter size printing instructions 3

3. Change the page size to A4

Printable calendar stickers - A4 size printing instructions - 2

5. Click OK. The first menu will now look like this

Printable calendar stickers - A4 size printing instructions - 3

I have not noticed a difference between printing on ‘standard’ and ‘high’ print quality settings

4. Press ‘OK’ to close that menu, then press ‘Print’

Note: if you live in Australia and keeping the stickers at 1.5″ wide is important – make sure you print using the PDF file as I have found the JPG file alters the size of the stickers to 1.6″ long… or maybe that’s just my printer. This size printing error also occurred even if I un-checked the ‘fit picture to frame’ button so if maintaining the exact size is important to you please print using the PDF!

Printing the JPG File

1. Open the JPG and click the black arrow (point down) next to ‘print’

printable calendar stickers  printing instructions - jpg - 1

2. A new window will appear. Click on ‘options’ then ‘printer properties’ this will take you into the same printer menu as for printing a PDF. Change the paper size if need be. Click on ‘options’ in the bottom right and make sure the correct page size and print quality if you wish to print on ‘high quality’ is selected.

printable calendar stickers  printing instructions - jpg - 2

3. IMPORTANT: when I print the stickers using the the jpg they did not print correctly when the ‘fit picture to frame’ box was ticked so be sure to UNTICK this box! This is what worked for my printer – yours may be different. As always I recommend doing a test print onto a piece of scrap paper and in greyscale before printing multiple sheets onto sticker paper as all printers work differently (I also recommend writing down or taking screenshots of the printer options you selected so you can refer back to them if needed).

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE STICKER PAPER?

Buy it! Seriously it’s worth it. If you don’t want to buy  a lot you can order a few sheets from Labelsbythesheet. Label paper is very inexpensive if purchased in bulk e.g. from OnlineLabels

If you do not have label paper you can print onto normal printer paper and use glue or glue tape to adhere. I would recommend cardstock though as the colours print more vibrantly and are not see-through on thicker paper. I recommend ‘quill board’ which is thicker than copy paper at 210GSM. I also use this for printable notecards. You can buy it at Officeworks. I’m sure places like Staples in the US sells something similar. Even though it’s thicker than normal copy paper it doesn’t jam my printer. Amazon also sells cardstock.

Another option is to cut contact paper to letter size, peel back the sticky edge and stick the printed stickers to the contact sticker i.e. order will be: contact paper, printed stickers and then the back of the contact paper. I recommend trimming the white edge off the printed stickers so the contact paper stickers to the back (non-sticky side that comes with the contact paper). Cut or punch out as needed then peel back for stickers. Not sure if contact paper is called the same thing in the USA but this looks similar.

__________________________________

CUTTING YOUR STICKERS

I have found that the most efficient method of cutting is to:

1) Cut off the white space on the top, bottom and sides
2) Cut the remaining into strips horizontally going across the width of the page
3) Cut the smaller strips still using your paper trimmer or using scissors.
The reason I cut horizontally is that there is less to cut (as you are cutting the width not the length of the sticker which is longer) but it is up to you to cut whichever way works best for you!

Tip: I print off sticker sheets then cut them during ad breaks while watching TV. I have found that I can cut up to 3 sticker sheets at once using my guillotine.

__________________________________

WHAT DO YOU USE TO CUT THE STICKERS?

I use a guillotine I purchased a few years back. I can’t remember where I bought it from but it is similar to this one. I prefer that style of paper trimmer to this style as I find it easier to see where I’m cutting and easier to cut multiple sheets at once.

For the flag stickers I use scissors for the flag ends. If you want round stickers I recommend using a craft punch such as this one. Medium size scissors are preferable as the blade is too large on large scissors and I’ve found small scissors make my hand cramp after about 5 sticker sheets.

How to Make DIY Planner Stickers with Silhouette Studio or Cameo

Customers often ask me if they can use the printable stickers with their silhouette machine. The answer is yes! Stickers in my shop are sold in both JPG and PDF file formats. There are many tutorials on the internet that show you how you can print and cut stickers using your silhouette with a JPG file.

1. Open the JPG file into your silhouette studio software
2. Reduce the size of the sticker sheet if needed to fit 8.5 x 11″ page size
3. ‘Show’ registration marks

4. As the JPG sticker sheets are not pre-formatted to print using the silhouette, you may need to reduce the size of the sticker sheet slightly (hold down shift and drag inwards to maintain the stickers’ proportions e.g. square shape). If you do not want their size to reduce, then do not resize and just let some of the stickers get cut off the page when they print OR crop out the white space and some of the stickers so they fit within the registration marks

5. Trace around the stickers to create cut marks
6. Print the stickers onto full sheet sticker paper
7. Change your blade settings as advised by your Silhouette machine

I do not own a silhouette machine. I cannot justify the cost when it only takes me 5 minutes to cut (I use a guillotine) a sticker sheet with 270 stickers such as these which will keep me organized all year long. Lately, I have taken to printing and cutting 3 sheets of the half inch square stickers at a time making the process even quicker! The 1.5″ long  x 0.5″ high stickers are designed to print on this sticker paper from online labels, or you can print and cut by hand, using an exacto knife, paper trimmer, scissors ect. Instant download printable files also means instant gratification, free shipping, no waiting for the postman and if you run out of stickers just print another sheet!:)

Today’s post is for all you die-hard Erin Condren fans! You guys loved my calendar stickers so I’ve made stickers that are especially designed to fit the Erin Condren Life Planner! (They can also be used for other planners such as plum paper and my 2015 printable planners)

Printable Calendar Stickers

And for those of you who have asked for a smaller size for the other calendar stickers, please see this post which has helpful screenshots on how to change the page scaling (e.g.  100% to 50% will make them 0.375″in size.

UPDATE: New half inch (0.5″) square stickers are also available with each sheet featuring a different icon e.g. gas pump, dollar sign, laundry, trash can ect.

UPDATE: Unfortunately I have had to remove the Get It All bundles due to customers computers not being able to handle the MASSIVE number of files (hundreds) through one download link resulting in me having to send them via email which meant I was actually losing money.

The Get It All planner bundle is still available. But the Get It All sticker bundles have now been replaced with Choose 5, Choose 10, Choose 15, Choose 30, the Mystery Bundle (which contains a lot of best sellers!) and the Sticker Subscription (you choose the duration for the subscription).

A note about printing: matte sticker paper is recommended if you want to write on the stickers. See here for a list of places to purchase label paper from. Re-positionable full sheet label paper is available from Staples among other places. I’ve found that buying label paper online is cheaper than in store. Online Labels sells 100 sheets for $30 or just 30c for a whole page of stickers!

I also get asked how I cut the stickers. I use a paper trimmer I purchased a few years back. I can’t remember where I bought it from but it is similar to this one. I prefer that style of paper trimmer to this style as I find it easier to see where I’m cutting and easier to cut multiple sheets at once. I print off sticker sheets, set up my paper trimmer in the front of the tv and by the end of a show I’ve cut all the stickers! For the flag stickers I use scissors for the flag ends. If you want round stickers I recommend using a craft punch such as this one.

These stickers are STRICTLY FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. NO COMMERCIAL USE is allowed including: reselling, printing and selling, sharing, giveaways and posting them on your blog for others to download. If someone you know would like a copy, please direct them to my store. You may NOT PROFIT FROM these stickers in any way – thank you for respecting the time it takes to create these designs!

I get a lot of enquires regarding if there is a printed and shipped to your door option for these stickers so I want to know:

I live in Australia – I know many of you live in the USA so the other thing I would like to know is:

I have some good news – you can also purchase the Photoshop templates I have created and make your own stickers. AND you CAN sell the stickers you make with the templates in digital and/or printed form. But you CANNOT sell the photoshop template, share, sell, giveaway (such as make directly available for download from your blog – please direct people to my store to purchase themselves if they are interested). If you are interested in purchasing, please contact me at allaboutthehouseetsy@yahoo.com.au

Customers often ask me how I make these stickers. To see if this would be feasible, please let me know how much you would pay for a comprehensive guide on how to make your own calendar stickers? (for personal and/or commercial use). I would include in the guide 5 different ways for making calendar stickers (with free and paid software) and where to buy sticker paper from (USA and Australia).

Are there any other sticker designs, colours or sizes you would like to see? If so, please comment below – I am a bit obsessed with making stickers at the moment!

For those of you who love washi tape, check out my sister’s Etsy store, CarefullyCraftedbyJo.

Because I am so grateful for my customers I’ve also made FREE dashboard printables! These use the same colour scheme as the Rainbow Planner and all of the calendar stickers.

Dashboard printable planner calendar rainbow free erin condren filofax half size

The dashboards are 2.75″ wide x 6.75″ high which will fit pretty much any planner including: letter size planners, arc (letter size and junior size), A4, A5, filofax, portable daytimer, franklin covey, Plum Paper, both sizes of my Rainbow Planner and of course the Erin Condren life planner (or any of her notebooks ect.).

To make your dashboard
1. ‘Purchase‘ the template (it’s free – just add to cart and ‘checkout’) then print the template onto letter size 8.5 x 11″ or A4 size paper
To make double sided dashboard take 2 copies of the template e.g. one side the checklist, the other lined for notes and use double sided tape or glue tape (so the pages aren’t too fat to laminate) to adhere together before laminating. I recommend printing onto cardstock but this is not necessary.

2. Laminate
If you do not have a laminating machine – your local office supply store e.g. Staples, Officeworks ect. will do this for you inexpensively

3. Cut around the dashboard, leaving approx half an inch of laminate on one side for punching the holes

4. If using with your Erin Condren planner, you can purchase coil clips from her website. Otherwise use the Arc punch if you have an Arc notebook (this is what I did), or use a hole punch if you are using a 3 ring binder or similar.

5. Use dry erase markers or fine tip pens to write on and wipe clean with a cloth, tissue ect.

You can also print a bunch and turn them into a tear-off notepad. Add a magnet and place on your fridge for a grocery list, meal planning ect.  There are many tutorials for how to do this, here are a few: Playful Learning, She Knows, Skip To My Lou, ChicandJoagusyornet and ThreeBySea.  When I made mine I used modge podge. If you’re concerned about printer ink – the stripes also print nicely in greyscale.
