In case of die-cut stickers/ using sublimation designs or creating quality products for the society six  later, we should use a canvas of minimum dimension 10’’ * 10’’ @ 300 dpi and make a sticker per canvas. In case of printable stickers with home ink-jet printer, use CYMK as color profile. For digital stickers, RGB/ default P3 is good. Give the Custom canvas the name ‘Stickers’ and choose done. A novel canvas will promptly open up on the screen.  The canvas should be 8.5* 11 inches/ 850* 1100 pixels.
