Hello all!

I ordered a bunch of 11 1/2 x 8 sheets of paper that has 20 2 inch round stickers.

I REALLY wanted to make my own but after many tries and fails I gave up... I really want to use them but I have no idea where to start. They dont line up when I print them out...

Can anyone tell me how to line them up or a program I can use? It would be VERY greatly appreciated!!!

Have you tried the Avery software?

I've never had much luck lining up stickers on the computer either, even with Avery software.

There are several crafts you can do with paper shredder shreds, use it to stuff your creations or for paper dolls...

The best way around this would to make your stickers "bleed".  I don't know how much experience you have with graphic design, but I will try to explain this as basic as possible.

Essentially, you want to be setting up a document that mocks your paper (so create the 20 circles, spaced the same as they are on the paper).  After you do this, design your stickers.  To be safe and make sure that everything prints where you want it to, what you need to do is this:

Extend your background about 1/8 of an inch OUTSIDE the boundary of each circle.  So if all of your circles are going to have, for example, a blue background, you could just make the document's background blue and that is taken care of.

As far as graphics or text goes, you want to keep that at least 1/8" INSIDE of your circle.  Ie, you need 1/8" of blank background inside of your circle before your design begins, so that it will always be inside of the sticker.  To be safe, your final design should be a 1 3/4" circle with an 1/8" colored border around it.

I hope that makes sense, if not, I can try to clarify it!  Hope this helps.

sometimes on stationery items like that, there will be a number that corresponds to a "standard" for that size of the item (often it is Avery.)  If there isn't such a thing on the packaging maybe you could call the manufacturer to see if they know ---or if they have some other tool to help you print on them.
