What are printable planner stickers?

These are digital planner sticker files (usually in PDF or PNG file types) that you can download to your computer or other device, and then print/cut at home as many times as you want.

Because this is a digital file, you can use them instantly and print as many times as you'd like. 

As such, no physical product will be shipped to you so there's no need to wait to use your stickers.

What are the dimensions of these stickers?

These stickers are designed around a 1.5-inch column width, with the vertical Erin Condren Life Planner in mind. They can be used for a variety of other planners as well and be trimmed to fit as needed. The full size boxes are 1.5-inch wide by 1.9-inch tall.

To ensure that our stickers fit your planner, you can sign up for our freebie sticker sampler set to test the dimensions. If you have questions about the sizes of stickers not included in the sampler, please contact us.

Are these stickers editable?

At this time we do not offer editable versions of our printable planner stickers.

How do I print and cut the stickers?

These stickers are designed to be printed on a home printer. Both PNG and PDF files will be provided with your purchase, so that you may either cut by hand or with a craft cutting machine. Instructions are provided below, but may vary for your printer or cutting machine.

BY HAND

  1. Open the PDF file.
  2. Select Print to open the dialog box.
  3. Make sure that “Actual size” or 100% is selected. Do not scale the size.
  4. Click on “Properties.”
  5. Change Media Type to the appropriate paper type for your paper. Use “Matte Photo Paper” for regular sticker/label paper.
  6. Make sure the Printer Paper Size is set to Letter 8.5”x11”.
  7. Change Print Quality to “High.” Click “OK” and print.<
  8. Use a craft knife, paper cutter or scissors to cut out the sticker shapes.

WITH A CRICUT MACHINE 

  1. Open Cricut Design Space.
  2. Start a new project.
  3. Click “Upload” and then “Upload Image.”
  4. Drag & drop the PNG file into the upload box or click “Browse” to locate the PNG file on your computer.
  5. Select “Complex” for image type, continue past Select & Erase, and select “Print Then Cut Image” for upload type. Click “Upload.”
  6. Click the uploaded file and “Insert Image” to your canvas.
  7. Make sure that the dimensions for your PNG are locked. Look for the lock icon in the “size” section at the top of the canvas.
  8. Change the width to 6.75 inches.
  9. Click “Make It.” It should show that the sticker will print then cut.
  10. Load the sticker paper in your printer and click “Send to Printer.”
  11. In the “Print setup” box, turn on the “Add Bleed” and “Use System Dialog” options. Click “Print.”
  12. In the system dialog box, click on “Preferences.”
  13. Change Media Type to the appropriate paper type for your paper. Use “Matte Photo Paper” for regular sticker/label paper.
  14. Make sure the Printer Paper Size is set to Letter 8.5”x11”.
  15. Change Print Quality to “High.” Click “OK” and print.
  16. After you print the stickers, place the sticker sheet on your Cricut mat and load into your Cricut machine.
  17. Select “Rice paper” and “Less” for a kiss cut (just cut the stickers and not the backing). You may need to test out different settings (such as Sticky Note or Washi Sheet) to see what works best for your specific paper and cutting machine.
  18. Make sure that your Cricut machine has good lighting so that it can read the black box around the sticker images. These are the guidelines for the Cricut.
  19. Press the Go button and let your Cricut work its magic.

WITH SILHOUETTE

We personally do not own a Silhouette cutting machine, but you may follow instructions in this tutorial:

What are the software requirements?

If you plan to cut by hand, you will need to print the PDF file with Adobe Reader software. Adobe Reader is available for FREE to download here: https://get.adobe.com/reader/

If you are using a Cricut cutting machine, you will need to have Cricut Design Space installed. You can download Cricut Design Space for FREE here: https://design.cricut.com/

If you are using a Silhouette cutting machine, you will need to have Silhouette Studio installed. You can download Silhouette Studio for FREE here: https://www.silhouetteamerica.com/software

What sticker paper should I use?

These products are designed for US letter sized, 8.5 x 11-inch sticker paper. Any full sheet sticker or label paper, such as this one*, would work. 

It is recommended that you do a test print on regular printer paper prior to printing on your sticker paper.

If you do not have sticker paper, another option is to print on regular printer paper, cut out the sticker shapes, and paste the cut-outs to your planner with your adhesive of choice.
