What Type Of Paper Do I Need For Stickers?

To make any custom waterproof stickers, you are going to need good sticker paper. I prefer white sticker paper but you can also get clear sticker paper.

You can not make stickers with regular paper, for it to be a sticker it should have the adhesive backing.

Cricut also makes vinyl sticker paper. I have never had any luck with this paper even feeding through my printer.

So depending on my project and what if I am going to be using it for personal use or to sell, I stick with the matte or glossy sticker papers.
