How to Create Custom Stickers for Tumblers

Making your own stickers for tumblers is literally as easy as one, two, three.

1. Select Your Paper and Waterproofing Method

Royal Elements is the one-stop-shop for everything your need for stickers for tumblers. Choose from clear, white, or glossy sticker paper, but that’s not all! You can print your stickers on waterproof paper, or choose a laminating top sheet to make normal sticker paper more durable. Don’t worry if you are bad at centring your stickers on the cup. Waterslide paper doesn’t set right away. With Waterslide, you can affix the sticker then slide it right into position.

2. Designing Your Stickers for Tumblers

You can use any design program you like. Use Word for names and poems. Use Canva to have free access to backgrounds, fonts, and graphics. You can even freehand in Paint or put your Photoshop skills to work.

For more than one identical sticker, use a template from Word or Avery. This allows you to select the shape you want and have your design automatically spaced evenly over the page. What a time saver! 

3. Print Your Stickers

We have sticker paper for inkjets and laser printers. No printer? No problem! Most copy shops, like Staples, allow you to bring your design in on a USB stick, or email it to the store. This is especially handy if you need to print a larger batch for a big order. Just make sure you check with the store first to see if their printer is an inkjet or a laser.

That’s it! In three easy steps you have stickers for tumblers for your clients or as gifts for your friends.
