How to make stickers in custom sizes for your planner

If you don’t see a standard label size that works for you, custom sizes and/or shapes can be achieved in two ways: (1) printing at home on 8.5" x 11" sticker project paper or other full-sheet labels (2) using our custom printing service.

At home, you can create custom planner stickers in any size or shape that you can imagine using sticker paper and full-sheet blank labels, which come in a variety of materials, colors and finishes. Simply print your designs on the sticker paper or label sheets then cut them out with regular scissors or popular cutting machines for crafting.

Or you can have us print for you and choose custom sizes (up to 8" x 10") at no extra charge. To create custom stickers through our WePrint™ service, simply start on the custom labels page, choose a shape, follow the steps and enter the planner sticker dimensions of your choice.
