Make Your Own Vinyl Stickers

Make Your Own Vinyl Stickers
There are so many uses for vinyl stickers!  Laptop decals, business logos, you can even use stickers as your business cards.  I've been interested in trying my hand at making vinyl stickers for some time, so I'm teaming up with Canon USA today to show you how to make your own!

canon printer To make your own vinyl stickers, first you'll need to acquire self adhesive printable vinyl and self adhesive laminating sheets.  I couldn't find these supplies locally, so I purchased mine from Amazon.  Next, it's time to design!  I wanted a simple design for laptop decals, so I used my tablet in Photoshop to doodle some raindrops.

Once I got a design I was happy with, I used my PIXMA iP8720 to print directly onto the vinyl sheets.

After the design was printed, I pressed the self adhesive laminating sheets on top of the design to make the stickers more durable.  Once the vinyl sheet was laminated, I cut the stickers out and placed them on my computer!

I loved the way they turned out so much that I used the same steps to make a drumhead logo for our drummer!

Basically, I'm just dreaming up all the ways I can use stickers in my life.  The next time I do a craft show, I'll definitely be making stickers to hand out as freebies!  How would you use vinyl stickers in your world?

  7. Similar to what I've seen online, I've used the vinyl stickers on canvas prior to painting it, which turned out quite cool. I imagine I would use them just about anywhere in my apartment. They are so versatile and with the option of customizing, can fit anyone's personality. Very cute post :)
