  • How to make a sticker. Bumper Stickers!!! - Step 1
    Step 1

    Go to your local office supply store, or shop online for some bumper sticker paper. Its reasonably priced and you can buy large packages if your feeling frisky and want to make a bunch of stickers. Just make sure to get some stuff that will hold up to the eliments or with one rain you'll have a plain white square on your car. I did this the first time.. not so fun

    Step 2

    You have your paper, you have an inkjet printer attached to your computer, so now you need a design. Theres tons of random funny pictures and designs you can find with a good ol' google image search.
    "is that a friggin' shark cat?!?! ZOMG that is sooo the one i'm going to make"

    Step 3

    Save your fun picture and open it in editing software, i use Paintbrush and Photoshop but whatever you have that you can crop and add text will work just fine. I think "om nom nom nom" is a good one for this.

    Step 4

    So save your work, or if you have Vista your program may restart and you'll end up punching and/or kicking something nearby and maybe hurting your foot or fist. Just save. ok? save yet? go on.. do it, i'll wait...... Good girl.

    So, becasue i havnt figured out photoshop as much as i need, i opened the saved shark kitty pic in paintbrush and duplicated the picture to make a full sheet, wasting sticker paper is just wrong.

AWW &$^@(%&#^%$ ok ok, before you go and waste sticker paper... might want to check if your printer has INK! (sigh) ok ok its all good, heck that gritty sepia tone is "in" these days.

yeah inkjet sticker paper is ready to load in your printer like regular paper or photo paper. Just make sure you put it in the right side or your stickers will print on the backing of the sticker.
