I am planning a whole Dr. Seuss themed shower for my first nephew! Woohoo!! I was just about to order onesie stickers from etsy and thought it would be awesome if they were Seuss themed (and no one has those) I have tons of images from doing a scrapbook for them in Seuss and am a graphic designer so I could easily make my own, but where do you buy the material for them? Anyone know? I did try contacting a few of the people that make them on etsy, but time is the problem here. The shower is next Saturday so I dont have time to design and send to them and then they send to me.

Here's a link to what I'm talking about:

You should be able to get the transparent adhesive sheets at any office supply or craft store.

I was hoping to find circle ones. How do they get them into perfect circles?

I would think that it would be rather hard to purchase a pre-cut adhesive circle sticker sheet and then get your graphic to fit it perfectly. A PITA at the very least.

There are several ways that I can think of that you could get them in perfect circles. I guess the method you use would depend on the tools you have and/or are willing to get as well as how much time you want to put into this project. The tools you can use would also depend on the size that you would like to stickers to be. You could use a large circle punch, a die cut machine, hand cut them with scissors.... there are tons of ways you could do it.

If it were me and I was a week away from throwing a shower I would probably purchase the ones off of Etsy and work out priority shipping with the seller. I don't think I'd have the time or energy to hunt the material down, design and size the graphic, print the graphic and the material, cut the graphic out... etc. etc. etc. I'd rather pay someone else to do it.

Also, I don't know why I didn't look closer at the link you posted for the pre-made onesie stickers earlier but I think you're going to be hard pressed to do it yourself for anywhere near what they seller is asking for those. $8.99 is a steal when you look at purchasing the materials to make them yourself. Looks like she sends proofs and ships same day as well.

I would buy them for sure, that's no problem at all. The problem is I want Dr. Seuss themed ones and there aren't any.

What about an Alchemy request for a custom order? It's worth a try.

The problem is that Dr. Seuss themed are a copy right violation unless they've paid royalties.

You're better option is to just buy some Dr. Seuss themed stickers. Slap one on and call it a "onesie" sticker. It only needs to stay for the day after all.

I've made similar stickers. Printed out design, cut out desired shape(used 2inch circle punch) and ran through the xyron to make the "sticker". Would this work for this purpose?
