Whether you want to start a business, build brand awareness, or bring your design ideas to life, starting the process of designing and getting your stickers printed can be a little intimidating.

Not a technical person? You don't have to be. Our Canva design guide is easy and user-friendly for beginners to Canva veterans. Please keep reading for our quick guide with everything you need to know to design custom stickers on Canva. 

Canva Sticker Design How-To Guide

First things first, before you get started, you need to set up a Canva Pro account. This will give you full access to designs, fonts, and other elements for your designs and help with licensing. Once you get an account, you can design your stickers on your mobile app or use your computer. We always recommend using a computer, so you have more space to design and edit. 


  • Set up your design 
  • One major factor that stops most people from designing stickers is not clearly understanding the dimensions and design. Canva makes it easy with its search features and templates. Simply search for stickers under the search bar, and thousands of templates will pop up. 

  • Choose a template
  • You can start with a blank sticker or select a template you love. You are able to fully customize the colors, shapes, images, and fonts, so pick a template closest to what you want to design, and then you can edit as you go along. 

  • Make it your own
  • Canva has several elements, shapes, and illustrations you can choose from to customize your design. Add and upload your own designs, or use some of their features to create your sticker. You can even add your own vector drawings and upload custom fonts and PNGs you have designed or purchased. 

  • Finalize the design 
  • Once you have finalized the design, you can download the files and save them to your computer. You are now just one step away from bringing your sticker designs to life. 

  • Order your prints
  • Now your sticker design has been completed, you can head over to our site and get them printed. We have several options for you, like holographic stickers, kiss-cut stickers, glow-in-the-dark stickers, and more! Find your favorite sticker type, upload your new design, and let us handle the rest!
