Option 2: Print and cut your stickers with a Cricut or Silhoutte
A Cricut, Silhouette or other die-cutting machine will help you to create perfect stickers – just like all the shops you love to buy from!
I’ve included both PNG and SVG versions of the print and cut files – some machines prefer one format over the other, but there’s no difference in the end quality either way.
In most cases, you’ll still need to print the artwork file on your printer first with the registration marks from your machine’s software. This time, you’ll use the file that includes a ‘bleed’ – this is an extra 1mm of artwork around the edges of the stickers, PAST the cut lines. This means that your finished stickers won’t have a small white border if the cutting machine doesn’t cut perfectly… so they will look professionally printed!
After the bleed is cut off, these stickers will also end up fitting boxes that are 1.5″ wide. Make sure to print them 100% scale if you want them to fit The Coloring Planner.
You can then load the black cut file into your machine’s software, which should match perfectly with the position of the stickers. Trace this within the software and load up your printed page into the cutting machine, and you’re ready to go! (These instructions will vary, based on your machine of choice, so make sure you follow the machine instructions and do a few trial runs on plain paper first, before printing on your sticker paper)
If you’re using sticker paper, a ‘kiss cut’ setting will allow you to keep the backing paper in one piece and just cut through the sticker layer – so the stickers will be easy to keep together and remove from the sheet.
