Make your own stickers

For those wanting to recreate some old skool stickers (or any other designs) these clear printable sheets might help. All you need is decent artwork and access to a laser printer.

Oh Matthew!! If only it were that simple :)

Artwork will be key, there is plenty of sh*t artwork out there, also, most stickers should really be printed, gassed and then have a clear laminate applied, otherwise they won't really last a long time.

The difficulty is the technology that sticker makers now use. I can produce excellent quality printed stickers, but most standard printers like myself can't print chrome / metallic or do embossing, without the special kit.

These should be fun for hobbyist messing about, but perhaps double-layer them if you can.

Absolutely agree with you, Fattus old cat.
Good thoughts from a professional.
This was more of an idea if you needed some old stickers without modern flashy embossing or metallics, or if you wanted to experiment with your own design before getting them done properly.
