4 stunning photo sticker styles to make

Photo stickers offer a fantastic way to personalize items and showcase cherished memories. However, there are many ways that you can customize your photo, or the figures in your photo while turning it into a sticker. 

Beyond all of those, maybe you don’t even know all the possibilities that you can do to make a photo sticker. Knowing that, in this article, we will show you 4 stunning photo sticker styles. Each style has its unique charm and suitability for different types of photos and applications.

So, let’s dive in and discover the perfect style to bring your images to life!

1. Full Photo Stickers

Imagine the joy of transforming your favorite landscape or capturing the essence of a special subject into a sticker. Full photo stickers are the perfect way to showcase the complete image that can adhere to anywhere. 

Photos that are suitable for this sticker style:

To make the most of full photo stickers, opt for landscape or wide-angle shots that boast remarkable depth and visual appeal. For this photo sticker style, rectangle and square sticker are the most common shapes to choose. However, you can try rounded corner shapes to make an unique one.

Recommended applications: 

The beauty of full photo stickers lies in their versatility. These mesmerizing stickers are ideal for adorning suitcases, laptops, water bottles, and other solid items that offer enough surface space to display the entire photo without losing its impact.

While the idea of having full photo stickers may be charming, you should avoid printing them too small because it’s essential to retain the clarity and detail of the photo to preserve its visual impact.

When crafting these stickers, choose a size that allows the full beauty of the photo to shine through. 

2. Full Figure Stickers

If you’re looking to make photo stickers of your favorite person or pet in a truly heartwarming way, full figure stickers are a delightful choice. This photo sticker style showcases the complete figure of your beloved subject. 

Photos that are suitable for this sticker style:

The magic of full body stickers lies in their ability to highlight the uniqueness of the person in it.

For this reason, choose photos that prominently feature the subject in their entirety, capturing their one-of-a-kind poses or endearing movements. A photo that showcases the subject in their full body will evoke treasured memories and portray their captivating personality in the sticker.

Because full figure photo stickers are cut to the shape, they always come in die-cut or kiss-cut stickers.

Additionally, it is more difficult to make this type of photo sticker compared to the first one since you need to remove excess parts out of the photo before printing it out. Refer to our related blog “How to turn photos into stickers? Effortless ways to do at home” to better know the methods to do this.

Recommended applications:

The beauty of full body stickers knows no bounds.

If you print your own photo sticker, use it to personalize your everyday items, like water bottles and phone cases, with these heartwarming stickers, and carry a piece of your cherished loved one with you, wherever you go.

Additionally, if you adore your pets, create a custom pet sticker, which is suitable for your car, laptop or phone, spreading the joy and love they bring into your life.

To ensure a stunning representation in the sticker, you need to pay attention to the details of the person or pet in the photo. As experts’ recommendation, choose images where their features are clear and distinguishable, as this will contribute to a truly captivating sticker. 

Lighting and resolution play a vital role in capturing the full figure, so consider using photos that bring out the vibrancy and beauty of the subject. 

Additionally, you should add a border line around the photo sticker to emphasize the figure it features.

3. Custom Face Stickers

When you want to showcase the unique facial features of yourself, your loved ones, or your pets, there’s no better choice than custom face stickers. These charming stickers zoom in on the face, capturing every heartfelt smile, funny or adorable expression. 

Photos that are suitable for this sticker style:

To create stunning custom face stickers, opt for close-up photos that provide clear and detailed views of the face. A well-composed photo with good lighting and sharp focus will ensure that every nuance and emotion of the face is flawlessly captured in your sticker.

Remember to cut it to the shape because die-cut (or kiss cut) stickers will greatly emphasize the face on the sticker.

Recommended applications: 

Using a custom face photo sticker is a touch of personality to your everyday items, like water bottles, pen boxes, and phones. These stickers will accompany you throughout your day, bringing joy or cherished memories wherever you go.

You can also create a series of face stickers featuring you, your family members, your friends or your pets, and use them to decorate lockers, laptops, or even give them as thoughtful gifts to your loved ones.

To ensure that your custom face stickers turn out truly remarkable, it’s essential to select high-resolution with high pixel count photos.

Avoid using photos with obscured facial features or low visibility, as this can compromise the final sticker quality.

These photo sticker styles work best in die cut or kiss cut stickers. So consider adding an extra white border around the face sticker to make it more charming.

4. Custom photo stickers with text

If you’re seeking to add a personal touch and a heartfelt message to your photo stickers, we highly recommend photo stickers with customizable text.

These delightful stickers seamlessly combine the human or pet image with customized text, creating a one-of-a-kind design that speaks volumes about your emotions. 

Photos that are suitable for this sticker style:

You can use both full body or custom face photos, as long as the subject is clearly visible and the photo evokes the desired emotion. Whether it’s a beaming smile, a tender gaze, or a playful pose, any photo that encapsulates the essence of the person or pet will blend beautifully with the accompanying text.

Recommended applications: 

These heartwarming stickers make wonderful gifts that are bound to touch the hearts of your loved ones. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply expressing your love, these personalized stickers are thoughtful keepsakes that will be treasured forever.

You can also use them to decorate cards, adding a touch of warmth and love to your heartfelt messages.

Additionally, personalize your belongings, like notebooks, journals, or mugs, with these enchanting stickers, and make each item a true reflection of your emotions.

When incorporating text into the sticker design, it’s essential to ensure that the text is legible and clear. Choose a font style and size that complements the overall design and makes the message easily readable. 

Be mindful of the placement of the text to maintain a balanced composition and ensure that it doesn’t overpower the photo. The goal is to strike a perfect harmony between the image and the text, so you need to make a sticker in which each element enhances the other, resulting in a meaningful and visually appealing photo sticker.
