How to waterproof stickers cricut

If you’re a fan of the Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore machines, then you know how amazing they are for cutting and designing custom stickers. But what happens when you want to take your stickers to the next level?

That’s where waterproof stickers come in. With waterproof stickers, you can use them on items that come into contact with water without worrying about them getting damaged. They’re perfect for water bottles, laptops, and more! In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make your own waterproof stickers using your Cricut machine.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

To make waterproof stickers, you’ll need a few supplies:

– Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore machine

– Printable sticker paper

– Waterproof sealant spray

Step 2: Design and Cut Your Stickers

Using Cricut Design Space, create or upload the design for your stickers. Make sure to adjust the settings for the type of sticker paper you’re using. Once you’re happy with the design, send it to your Cricut machine to cut.

Step 3: Apply the Waterproof Sealant

After your stickers have been cut, carefully remove them from the mat. Find a well-ventilated area and lay your stickers flat on a protected surface. Spray a thin, even coat of waterproof sealant over the entire surface of each sticker. Let them dry completely before moving on.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Waterproof Stickers

Once the sealant is dry, your stickers are now waterproof and ready to use! Stick them onto water bottles, laptops, or any other item that you want to make water-resistant. Plus, the sealant will also help protect your stickers from fading.

Now that you know how to waterproof your Cricut stickers, you can enjoy the freedom of using them in even more ways. Whether you want to create custom decals for personal use or make waterproof stickers to sell, this tutorial has you covered. Get creative and start making your own waterproof stickers today!

If you enjoy creating custom stickers, this Printable Waterproof Sticker Set is perfect for you. With 6 stickers in the set, you’ll have plenty of space to design and print your own unique decals.

The stickers in this set are specifically designed to be waterproof and resistant to water. This means that you can use them on a variety of surfaces, both indoors and outdoors, without worrying about them getting damaged or ruined.

To make these waterproof stickers, you’ll need a printer and a Cricut Maker or a similar cutting machine. The first step is to open the design file in your preferred software and adjust the size, if necessary.

Once you have the design ready, you can print it on a US Letter size paper. Make sure to use a printer that supports waterproof ink for best results.

After printing, let the stickers dry for a few minutes before proceeding to the next step. This will ensure that the ink is fully set and won’t smudge or run when it comes into contact with water.

Next, place the printed sheet on a flat and clean surface, with the printed side facing up. Use a ruler or a straight edge to cut along the edges of the stickers. This will create individual stickers that you can peel off and stick wherever you like.

Once the stickers are cut, they are ready to be used. Simply peel off the backing paper and stick them onto any clean and dry surface. Whether you want to decorate your water bottle, laptop, or journal, these waterproof stickers will add a unique touch to your belongings.

Remember to avoid exposing the stickers to excessive water or submerging them in water for extended periods of time. While they are waterproof, prolonged exposure to water may cause the adhesive to weaken or the ink to fade.

That’s it! With this Printable Waterproof Sticker Set, you can create your own personalized stickers that will resist water and stay vibrant for longer. Enjoy the process of designing and printing your own stickers, and don’t forget to check back for more updates and tutorials on our website.
