How Do I Create My Own Label?

There are many reasons why you may wish to create your own label. Maybe you’re a business owner, an artist, musician or activist. Today we’ll break down the steps to creating your own custom label. 

Custom Labels

Before we begin the process, let’s recap what a custom label truly is. 

Labels can come in many shapes and sizes. These stickers are then used to quickly spread ideas, messages and information.

They are an excellent tool for businesses to spread their brand across an almost endless amount of space. 

Custom labels can be used to place on your products, give to your clients or just to have for your own personal enjoyment. They are a great way to help you and your products stick out from the crowd.

The first step to creating your own labels is the design. 

What Does It Look Like

Custom labels are special for a particular reason; they’re unique. 

Before you can begin to create your custom printed sticker, you’ll first need to have an idea of what it looks like.  

This is a great opportunity to get imaginative and innovative. 
Ask yourself, “what is it that makes my message unique” and “how can I portray that visually”. 

If you’re a business you may wish to add your logo here. Alternatively, if you’re a school teacher you may benefit from having the names of different classes or groups on their own individualised sticker.

Labels come into play for many reasons. 

Once you’ve found and created the right design for you, you will need to have a file put together. 

There are many platforms you can use to create your own design, even if you have never done it before. Canva ( and Photoshop are great options for anyone that doesn’t already have a digital version of their artwork. 
If you’re not looking to create something online you can also upload and use photos for your custom labels.

Once you’ve decided on what the artwork is going to be, you can start to create your custom label.
