Find a desirable design and photoshop it into an apple logo. Remember to leave a vivid contrast between the apple and the background for later cutting.

export the file as JPEG with maximum size.

Use "Transparent Clear Glossy Self Adhesive Sticker Paper Label Inkjet Print" for printing paper. You can find adhesive sticker paper for laserjet as well.

I'm using Epson XP-200 inkjet printer.

When printing, remember to set the setting to plain paper and printing quality to Photo.

If you set the setting to glossy photo paper or photo paper, the ink will be too thick.

If you set the setting to plain paper and normal printing quality, the image printed will be too faint.

Step 5: Apply Adhesive Layer

The transparent adhesive book cover is for preventing scraping of the ink on the logo.

Remember to use a card to slowly push the adhesive layer onto the logo to prevent any air bubble.

Step 6: Cut Out the Shape

Remember to trace out the outline on the peel off side to strengthen the outline for easier cutting.

Step 7: Stick Onto the Macbook
