Let's talk about planner stickers.
Don't worry, this isn't an intervention. In fact, it's quite the opposite!
I know firsthand just how addicting planner stickers can be; there's just something about receiving a nicely packaged envelope in the mail filled with colorful little stickers that can turn even the worst days upside down. Then, peeling the perfectly cut stickers off their sheets and carefully arranging them in your planner is about as therapeutic as it can get. There are so many amazing sticker shops on Etsy that it is hard not to think to yourself that you need more, more, more!
Unfortunately, planner stickers can be expensive.
Based on the article title, I'm going to assume that you're considering opening your own Etsy shop to bring your ideas to life, as well as earn some extra cash to splurge on planner related goodies. As the owner of an Etsy sticker shop myself, I have learned a lot over the past few months that I want to share with all of you, and to help you get started.
If the thought of designing, producing, and selling your own stickers to make some extra cash sounds appealing to you, then keep on reading, because I've compiled a one-stop guide that covers everything you need to know about how to make planner stickers to sell on Etsy!
Because there is so much information to cover, this guide is a multi-part series that I will be posting throughout the month of February. This main post will contain links to all the sub-articles in one organized, central location. If some of the parts are not yet available when you are reading this post, be sure to check back in a few days, as the guide will be finished within the month of February, with new posts coming every few days.
UPDATE: New article ideas have been added to the guide, so new posts will continue through March as well.
Likewise, if there's a particular topic that you are interested in that I have not covered, be sure to let me know so that I can include it in my guide!
