Like most kids, Jacob loves stickers. He likes to stick them on me, mostly, as awards for my “good behavior” and other awesome Mommy achievements. He also likes to stick them on random things throughout the house, on himself, and, occasionally, on the dogs. We go through a lot of stickers. Eventually I’ll convince him to put them in a handy-dandy sticker book, if they still make those. I had an awesome one when I was a kid, although that during the height of the 80s, when sticker books were all the rage (along with some very unfortunate fashions).
I thought it would be fun to make our own stickers rather than buying them for once, especially since he enjoys a huge variety and sticker sheets are usually geared towards one theme. I was given the chance to review the Home Make+Print stickers from Sticker You through Tomoson. The concept is pretty cool, you go online and create your stickers, then print them out on the paper provided in the package. Jake and I had fun picking out the different designs for each sticker. They have a bunch of themes, including DC Comics, holidays, art work, Spongebob, and loads more. Designing the stickers is really easy, just select the theme, pick the graphic, and add your text (when possible, a lot of the brand names can’t be personalized). You can select a different theme or graphic for every sticker, or upload your own images if you prefer. When you’re done, click on print and the sheet will save to a .pdf file that you can open for printing.
This is where it got a little tricky for me. I put the paper in exactly how it was supposed to go, but all the images were off center, some of the even off the sticker itself by quite a bit. I think this is a common problem with any type of sticker or label creation, at least with my printer, and not the fault of the Sticker You Make+Print Stickers themselves. My overall experience with using the site to design the stickers was very positive, even if it didn’t translate well to my printer. I think this would be great for making reward stickers for chore charts, homework, or other goal-based charts.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
