10 Sticker Templates for Making Fun DIY Decals

Printable sticker sheets you can use to make decals that don’t damage surfaces

Making DIY decals is fun for the whole family. Especially with our super cute predesigned sticker templates. Not to mention our printable Surface Safe® sheets that don’t damage surfaces.

We designed our Surface Safe adhesive decals and sign labels to stick securely and remove easily from smooth nonporous surfaces. These include metal water bottles, electronics, glass, drywall, painted walls, school lockers, painted doors, and stainless steel.

Simply design, print, and stick your decals on, then when you’re ready to remove them, just peel them away. When used on recommended surfaces, there’s no damage or sticky residue left behind.

What you need to create your own DIY decals

First, you’ll need a laser or inkjet printer, printable decal sheets, and a smart device connected to your printer and the internet. All of the free sticker templates in this article are formatted for Avery 8″ x 11″ DIY decals with Surface Safe adhesive (61512) and our blank labels by the sheet that you can buy online with no minimums. The designs also work perfectly on ou professionally printed Surface Safe labels.

Next, you will need to log in or create a free Avery account to use our Avery Design and Print Online (ADPO) software. ADPO allows you to edit, print, and save Avery templates at no cost. Not only is the software free, but there is nothing to download or install.

Pro Tip: If you don’t have a printer or don’t want to print at home, our custom printing service, Avery WePrint, is the perfect solution. We offer individually die-cut custom stickers or custom vinyl stickers on rolls that stick securely but remove cleanly.

Finally, you will need scissors or a craft knife to cut out your decals. You can also use Surface Safe sheets with a home die-cutting machine like the Silhouette Cameo®.
