A little while back, I shared a tutorial for how to make print & cut foil stickers with the Silhouette Cameo / Portrait and the Heidi Swapp Minc. Since I first posted the video, I’ve received several comments and emails asking me if I tried making DIY foil stickers with the Silhouette sticker paper and, in the video below, I’ll show you my results. Hint : they’re pretty darn awesome!
I was apprehensive about using the Silhouette sticker paper with my laser printer because there’s nothing on the packaging that says that it’s safe for use with laser printers, but I took the chance and didn’t have any problems at all with printing onto either the white matte sticker paper or the clear glossy sticker paper. I did end up having to use the manual feed on my laser printer to get the clear glossy sticker paper to print. This could’ve been because this particular sticker paper is on the thicker side, or it could’ve been because I started having major printer jam issues with my printer right around that time. So, just a heads up that you might need to feed the sticker paper through your printer manually.
I was very happy with the results that I got with the Silhouette Printable Clear Sticker Paper and felt that they were on par with the results that I got with the Online Labels Glossy Label Papers in my initial video. The Silhouette sticker paper is a great choice for those of you who don’t need large quantities and also for those of you who are in countries outside the U.S., where Online Labels’ shipping prices can get pretty expensive.
