Hello everyone!

Per long awaited request, I am finally happy to announce a new series of blog posts as a companion guide to my previous guide, where I will be demonstrating in-depth tutorials on how to design various types of planner stickers in GIMP.

Before we get started, here is a link to my previous guide, where I go step by step through the process of buying materials, opening an Etsy shop, printing and cutting planner stickers, and fulfilling orders. If you are interested in that material, click here to head over to the other series.

Additionally, I would like to mention that this series will also have a sister series released in parallel: How to Design Planner Stickers in Photoshop. If you are using Adobe Photoshop, head on over to that guide!

Otherwise, welcome!

Photo editing programs can be pretty overwhelming. I have been using Photoshop for almost 10 years now and I am still constantly discovering new features and finding easier ways to accomplish certain tasks. Although I don't use GIMP on a regular basis, this free, open source software has all the basic functionality you need to design planner stickers. I hope to share what I've learned in an effort to get you up to speed designing stickers in no time!

Some of these articles will even be made into videos on my YouTube channel, so be sure to subscribe to never miss a post!

The articles in this guide are listed below, and will updated with links as they become available.
