Customize Your Objects With Your Own Stickers




Introduction: Customize Your Objects With Your Own Stickers

About: I am a passionate industrial designer that loves to create all kind of things. I also studied some semesters of Robotics at the university. I love learning and teaching as well. If you have any questions abo…

I love adding faces to my objects so I think about them as cartoons. I hope you like adding faces, your name or decoration to your objects with your own stickers.

Amo agregar caras a mis objetos para pensar en ellos como caricaturas. Espero les guste también añadir caras, su nombre o en general decorar sus objetos con sus propios stickers.

Step 1: What Do You Need?

For creating your own stickers you will need:
1. A printed paper with the images you want for your stickers
2. Transparent tape
3. Scissors
4. A small bowl with water
5. The objects you want to customize

Para crear tus propios stickers vas a necesitar:
1. Una hoja impresa con las imágenes que desees para tus stickers.
2. Cinta transparente.
3. Tijeras.
4.Un bowl pequeño con agua.
5. Los objetos a los que quieras pegar tus stickers.

Step 2: How Do You Do It?

1. Apply the tape over the image you want. Everything that is white in the image will be transparent in the sticker.
2. Press heavily over the image.
3. Cut the paper.
4. Soak it in water for 3 minutes.
5. Take it out from the water, and start cleaning the paper.
6. Take the object you want to customize and just apply the tape on it, wherever you want! (Don't worry about the water on the tape, just press the tape over the object, it will stick to it.)

1. Pegar la cinta sobre la imagen deseada. Todo lo que sea blanco en la imagen va a quedar transparente en el sticker.
2.Presionar fuertemente sobre la imagen.
3. Cortar el papel.
4. Remojar en agua por 3 minutos.
5. Sacar del agua y empezar a limpiar el papel de la cinta.
6. Tomar el objeto que quiera personalizar y pegar la cinta sobre este, en donde desee! (No te preocupes sobre el agua en la cinta, sólo presiónala sobre el objeto, esta se pegará).

Step 3: Make a Cartoon of Your Object

Following the same steps, you can add faces to your objects. The best thing is that you can change part of the face if you didn´t like it and when you take off the sticker it wont leave marks on the object (As shown in the pictures).

Now, enjoy creating your own stickers!

Siguiendo los mismos pasos se pueden añadir caras a los objetos. Lo mejor de todo es que si una parte de la cara se desea cambiar se puede quitar el sticker y pegar otro, este no dejará marcas en el objeto.

¡Ahora, disfruta creando tus propios Stickers!

    First of all, thank you for this Cool and Easy instructable this project reminds me when I was at school I almost customized everything this way, its the same way to print on PCB boards and I've found out before you soak in water if u warm the sticker with iron for 15 sec on low setting (don't melt plastic tape ) ink will stick better and the paper will remove easier so you end up with a more professional sticker !

    Well to be honest yes it works, But the chance to get a high-quality sticker is low it gets messy and dark and most of the time you end up with no clear shape (laser jet will stick better to the tape rather than inkjet ) and you can do a colorful sticker also but it has the same problem some times and a tip (edit your image and print it more reach in color so it doesn't end up blurry !)
    if u want to make a colorful sticker you don't need to remover the background (paper ) just cut your shape and use a double sided tape to stick it on every surface to be honest its the best way to make a sticker!
