Hey Guys Got a lot of questions making my printables into stickers. This page has info. on my favorite products with links. And my review / tips on different ways of making stickers!
Label PaperI would also invest in the label paper. Its really preference! If you do I would suggest you know your printer or print a proof sheet on regular printer paper before printing on the label paper. It always sucks to print a bad sheet! Colors and sizes might not always be what you expected and you don't want to waist! I now use label paper with my silhouette machine! Ive tried a few Ill like the ones i liked below! Label paper is great because you can turn any image from the internet or that you create into a sticker! They have both glossy and matte,
I always suggest purchasing a 100pk for $10-$15 over a $5.00 pack with only 25pages because you get WAY more for your money!

Printer / Ink Suggestions
I use the HP Envy 4500 I when i upgrade I will be upgrading to the newest HP Envy! I love this printer its quality and I love HP's InstaInk! Its a Ink subscription, you pay $3.99-$9.99 monthly and you get 50-300 pages. if you print 1 link or a pull colored picture that covers the hole page each page only counts for 1 page. This is perfect for me because Most of my printed pages are full color free printables or sticker pages, so I save money instead of buying $50 in every two months I pay $10 a month.
I use ALOT of color ink so this subscription works great for me! I print 200-300 pages a month and your extra pages roll over so if you don't use them all you can use them later. Also if you go over its like $ .10- $ .5 cent each page! WAAAY cheaper than going to kinkos! And when I know i'm going on vacation for my shop or wont be home alot I change my subscription to the lowest plan with no upgrade or downgrade fees. Its perfect for people like me who have a busy summer life, we travel, go to the YMCA, movies, parks, and more, where rarely in the house so I don't need to print as much!
The Envy is an inkjet so if your printing in bulk you might want to invest in a laserjet printer but either way I still suggest the HP brand! Ive had 3 Hp printers, 1 Epson ( no complaints about it just prefer HP) , and 1 cannon. Each printer has pro's and Con's but Im completely happy with HP right now!

Xyron Review / Tutorial
I use to use the xyron sticker maker, Ive made over 100 sticker and still have paper on the roll. It comes with a roll when you buy and i got a ton of use out of it before switching to label / sticker paper! Wal-Mart (in-store) has it for the cheapest (as far as I've seen), but you can purchase it from Amazon as well. I would Google search it on there shopping search option, You never know!. I paid a few dollars for the Xyron 150 "X" (1.5 inches) on clearance, which is perfect for most things that go in my planner! There is one bigger and if I would have had the extra money at the time i would have splurged and got the Xyron Sticker Maker 5" Create - A - Sticker .
I'm a #PlannerOnABudget and it was the cheapest one so I decided to try it out.I can honestly say it was worth it before I purchased my Silhouette cutting machine!
