Using stickers when chatting is one of the best ways to have fun on the Telegram messaging app.
Stickers can be used on Telegram as well, just like WhatsApp and the fantastic thing is that you can create your stickers too.
There are so many stickers available and in different ranges, and this is because Telegram allows users to make and use their stickers.
The good thing about all this is that you do not need to have a developer account before making the stickers.
All you have to do is send images to a bot, and you are done. Well, halfway done.
If you have been looking to make your unique stickers to use on Telegram, you can do so after reading this article. Let’s get started.
Design Your Sticker
You do not need to be a graphic designer before you can design your stickers. Most of these stickers are funny memes and quotes that have been made from existing pictures, and having basic graphic design skills is pretty much enough.
You will have to follow some requirements when making the stickers, but they are all relatively easy to follow. Check them out below.
- Stickers should be made of PNG images with transparent background and should be 512 x 512
- Each should also be a separate image file. It would be best to consider using a telegram for windows when making them since it is easier done on a computer than on the phone.
- The sticker pack icon is optional and should be a PNG image of 100 x 100 with a transparent layer.
You should beware of using copyright images since your stickers will be taken off should a copyright owner make any complaints about it.
Most average telegram sticker packs are anywhere from 10 to 20 stickers.
You can use any photo editor to make your stickers or even use PhotoGrid to make them.
