How to Make Stickers with Procreate and Cricut by Holly Pixels

Let's make pretty floral laminated stickers with Cricut and Procreate. Back in July I showed you how to make a sticker with Cricut and Procreate. This time I'm going to show you how I do it using my desktop and the Cricut Design Space app along with laminating my stickers.

Let’s learn how to make stickers with Procreate and Cricut together! In the past I have always had my vinyl stickers printed mass produced by a sticker printer company. But lately I’ve been wanting to make more stickers and keep things cost effective by printing them myself.

So I invested in a Cricut Maker and I thought I would show you just how I would take my art made in Procreate and create vinyl, weatherproof stickers that you too can sell.

Equipment I Use to Make Stickers with Procreate and Cricut

  • I use the Procreate app – this is version 5.
  • My Printer is the Canon TR8520*
  • I use sticker paper from Online Labels – specifically the Weatherproof Gloss Inkjet (choose inkjet if you use an inkjet printer)
  • I have the Cricut Maker*
  • *are affiliate links where I make a little bit of money when you purchase through those links

Tips for Making Stickers with Procreate and Cricut

  • Make sure your artwork has a white border around it.
  • Crop your image down after you turn off your background layer.
  • Export as a PNG file.
  • Make sure your customers know that the sticker paper used is not for dishwashers.
  • FYI: if you’re using the Cricut app on your iPad, turn it landscape, then you can choose the Print Dialogue box to uncheck BLEED and that will help get rid of the fuzzy lines. You can’t see it when your iPad is in Portrait mode. Go figure! I prefer to do this on my desktop which is more intuitive to me.

    THANK YOU so much for this video. I have been back and forth on how I want to go about creating stickers. The Cricut seems so intimidating, but this gave me hope!!!!

    Thanks for sharing! Gonna have to try this out.

    This is so helpful! Is there a particular resolution you prefer to draw stickers in when starting the canvas?


    • Holly McCaig on July 9, 2020 at 9:51 am

      I read that as “reason” not “resolution! Sorry about that. I always draw my things in 300 DPI or 300 PPI for resolution. But I am one of those people that will also bring my items into Illustrator on my computer and vector them, so I can scale them up without ever losing quality.

    Thank you for always sharing and including ALL steps needed to be successful!
    How about a video on Washi tape? Would you be kind enough to share a manufacture (like you did with enamel pins?)
    Used your guy and was very pleased with the product! Thank you again!

    This was very helpful. Made the process less confusing. Two questions though, is it easy to peel off the back to attach sticker to something? Are the stickers permanent or removable?


    • Holly McCaig on July 19, 2020 at 10:02 am

      Pretty easy to peel. No, these are easily removed. They are weather proof so they will stick stronger. You can buy repositionable sticker paper from just cvheck the link in my blog post for all the options.

    Will any cricut work for making stickers or only certain ones?

    • Holly McCaig on January 7, 2021 at 10:34 am

      As long as your Cricut software is current and can do those features then yes.

  8. Addie D on March 18, 2021 at 3:11 pm

    Does the stickers have a back peel? If I were to ship them to someone?

  9. Jess on March 29, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    When I do this my colors are printing differently than they show on design space and procreate. Any tips? Thanks!!

    • Holly McCaig on March 30, 2021 at 7:44 am

      Every printer is going to print and handle things differently. Unfortunately, that’s not something I can help with. I use a Canon and it can be a little finicky with colors too. The paper type you use, settings you set for that paper on your computer, quality, etc. Those will all affect that.
