Step1. Design your stickers
I used Procreate to draw my illustration, but it can be anything!
Procreate is an illustration app available for iPad. Usually, apps are subscriptions which means you need to pay the renewal fee for every month. But Procreate is a one-time payment. There’s no subscription or renewal fee. I like it a lot.
After you draw your illustration, export it as a JPG file.
And also, check Canva. It is an online-based graphic design tool that provides free graphics, images, etc.
Step2. Adjusting it to print-ready
I used Canva to adjust the illustration to print-ready. You can use any graphic tools to do this process, but in this tutorial, I’ll use Canva.

To use Canva, you need to sign up for it. It’s free to sign up, but you need an email address. If you already have a Canva account, then log in!
Once you log into your account, select one of the 8.5 x 11 documents. You can choose your preferred canvas size here, but an 8.5 x 11 letter size document is easy to print out from any type of printer.
Ok, now you’ll see this screen. Select “create a blank.”
Upload your illustration to Canva. My illustration is saved on the desktop, so I selected “Device.”
Now, you’ll see your illustration in the image library on Canva. Place it on canvas. You can freely change the size. Remember, this will be U.S. letter size.
Once you’ve decided on the layout, go to download the upper right corner. Download it as “PDF print.”
Step3. Print it out
Set your Avery Shipping Address Labels into a printer.
Avery Shipping Address Labels is one sheet of a big sticker, so don’t worry about up and down. However, you need to make sure how your printer prints it out. (front and back) I recommend print on the paper first and then use a sticker sheet.
Step4. Cut it
Now cut your stickers! That’s all.
