How we design and make our stickers

Handmade stickers – our design process

We illustrate, design, print and cut all stickers in our shop.  We handletter words, numbers and quotes for stickers as well as use fonts. We also use some photographs and vintage or licensed graphics.

We illustrate and letter by hand on paper, using watercolours and markers, guache and pencils, acrylics and mixed media. Our iPads and computers with wacom tablets is also a way to create images, lettering and designs. We use Illustrator and Photoshop for making graphics and to clean up scanned paper illustrations.

The designs are laid out on sticker sheets, cut lines created, and then the magic happens in our ink jet printers and Silhouette and Cricut cutting machines.

Our favourite paper is matte and thin and doesn’t bulk up your planner. For now (autumn/fall of 2020) we are only offering stickers in this paper, but other qualities might be added later. Though not water proof, our paper and ink can still take some wet media. All pens and pencils that go well on paper works well.
