custom home-made sticker packs

Hi. I’m Zombie Yeti, a freelance illustrator (with a heart of gold.) Recently I was asked to attend a gaming convention on very short notice. I needed to shill some wares and sling some merch, so I decided to make some quick and easy Sticker Packs. Here’s my simple home-made sticker pack formula.

(Editor’s Note: We’re giving away some of Zombie Yeti’s Sticker Packs. Like and Comment below to be entered for random drawing!)

You may know me from my questionable Rock Art & Pinball Art… Or from my old Sticker-Related Interview. Or, you may NOT know me and that’s even better! Why!? Because now you can use google and form an opinion and/or judge me like a good internet user should!

In short, I’m a freelance Illustrator and as a freelancer, I try to make money so that I may continue to be a freelancer.

With this in mind, recently I was asked to attend a gaming convention in Milwaukee on very short notice. As a freelance artist that rarely goes to conventions or anywhere there are crowds, I was reluctant at first. However, after a day of reflection (working) and a wonderful message from my Accountant (ie the tax man cometh), I decided to take the opportunity to shill my wares in an attempt to make some money to continue being a freelancer.

“But what will I sell!?” – I thought to myself while silently making air quotes. Then it hit me – as a proud member of the Sticker Robot family, I happened to have a fair amount of my random stickers with my art on them laying around from past and present projects.

My first thought was ‘Kids love Sticker Packs!’ and my second thought was ‘How I do make Sticker Packs quickly!?’.

Turns out, it’s pretty easy to do yourself and if you’re ever in a pinch, or better yet… if you PLAN to create thematic sticker packs, hopefully this post can help you easily create your own sticker packs 

 

Sticker Pack Ingredients

4″ x 6″ Polybags
Decent Card Stock Printer Paper
A Stapler
Photoshop Easy Header Placard Template 1.0

 

Step 1. Print some Stickers and Gather them up.

“Stickers are the single greatest thing that is sticky and has dope pictures on it.”- Isaac Asimov (as paraphrased by Zombie Yeti)

 

Step 2. Get some Cellophane sleeves/bags from your local craft store or Amazonion retailer (linked above.) Place your desired amount and variation of stickers in each bag. 

 

7 stickers sounds like a lucky number!

Step 3. Download our free Photoshop template to create a printable and foldable placard to place on the cellophane sticker containers from step 2. Then print and cut out the placard(s) and fold them over the cellophane.

Seriously, that was way too easy. And guess what? People loved the sticker packs and I can now retire*!
