20+ Types of digital stickers you can easily make today
The sky’s the limit when it comes to the types of digital stickers you can create! But you can check out over 20 of my favorite kinds below. You can also use my Master List to help you come up with tons of great niche ideas.
You can design a variety of emoji stickers to add fun and flair to social media posts. Brainstorm the types of emoji stickers you’d like to create. Consider the emotions, expressions, or themes you want to convey. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Classic smiley faces with various expressions (happy, sad, surprised, etc.)
- Animal emojis (cats, dogs, pandas, etc.) with playful expressions
- Food emojis (pizza, ice cream, tacos, etc.) with a twist
- Emoji-themed word art (e.g., “LOL,” “OMG,” “YOLO”)
Designing cute and quirky animal stickers is a great way to share your love for animals with shoppers. Decide which animals you’d like to feature in your sticker collection. You could focus on pets like cats, dogs, or hamsters, or broaden your range to include wild animals, birds, sea creatures, and insects.
Craft elegant floral stickers for decorating journals, planners, and scrapbooks. Start by deciding on a theme for your floral stickers. For example, do you want to create a collection of roses, sunflowers, or a mix of various flowers? Having a clear theme helps guide your design process.
Design themed stickers for various holidays like Christmas, Hannukah, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day. Most holidays have unique decorations, symbols, and colors that you can include. For example, Christmas has Santa Clause and red and green. Hanukkah has menorahs and dreidels. And Valentine’s Day has hearts and pink.
Inspirational and motivational quotes never go out of style. Design stickers with uplifting words and messages. Quotes can be sourced from literature, famous people, or your original thoughts. Aim for quotes that resonate with a broad audience and convey positivity. But make sure any quotes you use from books or other people are in the public domain so you don’t run into copyright issues.
Food and drink stickers
Make mouthwatering stickers of popular foods and drinks. You can choose popular dishes, desserts, fruits, vegetables, or a mix of your personal favorites. You can organize your sticker collections based on meals:
- side dish
Capture the essence of different cities and countries with travel-themed stickers. You can choose iconic cities, famous landmarks, or countries you love. You could also make stickers of travel-related items, like suitcases, passports, and airplanes. Additionally, you might make stickers for every country’s flag.
Weather digital stickers

Design stickers inspired by nature and the great outdoors. You can include elements like…
- bodies of water
- camping equipment (e.g. tents, hiking boots, fishing poles)
Create stickers inspired by music and musical instruments. However, you should most likely stay away from talking about specific musicians or bands or referring to song lyrics. You’re apt to run into copyright issues that way. I recommend focusing on musical instruments or musical notation signs, such as quarter notes or treble clefs.
Space and astronomy stickers
Design cosmic stickers featuring stars, planets, and galaxies. Research different celestial objects like stars and constellations, planets, galaxies, and nebulae. Look for inspiration in astronomy books, websites, and images from space telescopes like Hubble.

Research different mythical creatures from various cultures and traditions. There are tons of creatures to explore, from dragons and unicorns to phoenixes and mermaids.
