It’s that time of year again! The time when you want to buy or make something special for someone you love… while on a budget. Well, don’t worry. There is a way to make and give a truly affordable and completely unique Christmas gift that they will treasure. Read on to find out.



What are vinyl stickers?



Vinyl stickers are durable, waterproof, and available a variety of sizes. They can be made extra durable for use outside through lamination, or they can be attached to a magnet. What makes vinyl stickers such a unique Christmas gift, is that you can customize them using nothing but your computer and your home printer!



But it doesn’t stop there…



In addition to making customized stickers to give out as gifts, you can use them as part of larger unique Christmas gifts. If the person in your life is a maker or crafter, you can gift them vinyl sticker making supplies so they can make their own customized stickers too. We’ll get into that in a minute, but first, let’s go over how easy it is to make vinyl stickers as your unique Christmas gift.



How to make vinyl stickers



To make unique Christmas gift vinyl stickers you need:



  • Printable vinyl
  • A computer with access to any type of design program such as Word, Canva, etc.
  • A laser or inkjet printer



You don’t have to be crafty or experienced to make vinyl stickers as a unique Christmas gift. There are plenty of free templates online to make sheets of stickers in a variety of sizes. And since sticker vinyl is easy to cut, you can even freehand your own digital designs. Are you more into writing poems or sketching? No problem. What you write or draw can be scanned and put onto a vinyl sticker. Does the recipient like a particular anime, Marvel character, or Disney? Well, be sure to check out our blog called Is it Legal to Use Art I Saw Online for my Sticker Design before you use any licensed character, or copywritten art.



To make your stickers, design them online in the program of your choice. Then print them, making sure you have the correct vinyl – inkjet or laser – for your printer.

If the person you are creating a gift for is a known crafter, you can give them something they will greatly appreciate – vinyl sticker supplies.

Anyone that is already making their own, or has an interest in making their own vinyl stickers would love to receive one or more of the following:



  • Boxes of printable vinyl, which are available in glossy, matte, and clear

Are vinyl sticker and vinyl sticker supplies expensive?



Let’s face it, budgeting is important, especially around the holidays. December can be an expensive month on top of all the regular bills and mortgage or rent payments. Unique Christmas gifts do not have to be expensive – they just need to come from the heart. Thankfully, vinyl stickers and vinyl sticker accessories are very affordable, and since you can buy in bulk, you can have enough on hand to make your own birthday, thank-you, and anniversary gifts throughout the year.



Depending on where you purchase your vinyl sticker supplies for unique Christmas gifts, you can pay as little as $20.95 for a whole box of glossy printable vinyl. You can make a lot of stickers from the 20 waterproof sheets in the box. Magnetic adhesive sheets can be had for as little as $17.95.
