1. Class Intro: Hi. My name is Minnesota and I Money State and made in this class. You would take your stickers from Illustrator Toe. It's an easy process to follow along and anyone can do so. By the end of this place, you will be able to check using your own stickers. This is a second burn off. The donors have into a dress. So you have your secret. Is that get you can take out my biggest. That's what I explained. I hope you join me. See you in class. 2. Step 1 - Create the Stickers Background: Okay. First thing I want to talk about is the sticker features that Teoh be for what's up? Especially if you want to sell them. If not, it's not so important. But we're trying to just stay with They request. So the size for the seekers should be 500 big sells for 500 pixels. They must have, Ah, transparent background. So you should save them as being G eight. They need to have 16 pixel margin, so the sticker has to be within it. And the sticker they recommend to have a stroke, a big self speak. So it stands out from the background and the seekers must be less than 100. So, as an example, those air war. What's up? Wallpapers? And as you can see, we removed the background. They don't stand up that much, so it really halves. So that's what I'm gonna show you how to do. Now the white backer, This is an example off the sticker that we're gonna make. He had to have the full body and I want to cut it around here. So first being will do the gate and this is gonna be the background, and we had this for a moment like layer and create a mask here. And it's changed field. And now this is too straight. I want need to have a little bit landed. So with bento out at going here and with dieting to just reposition points and again with Ben to an option key, I'll drag to reveal the candles. So now this is a little bit. Now, this is the mask, like the mask. It must be on talk and was selling sticker and will dio sleeping mask make. Or you can do it with the short bad comments. Okay, so next thing we'll hide this layer. This is the speaker and, uh, in the background. Well, we wanted to. Now he's removed everything. That is not a maid shaped like a silhouette. We just need the ceiling. So we'll remove all the elements of the face all the shadows because they might cause problems. Okay. The shoes The legs began to remove that because they weren't sure. And, uh, arms, shadows hair. Okay, so this is the basic elements that will create the ceiling. Now what we want to do is Teoh, like, make one shape off all of them. So we'll go to hear Pathfinder. If you don't see this icon, just go to window. And here you can find it and move your next. Okay, so now we have one meat? No way. Yes. Now, as you can see, thes shape is not within the mask as the Seeker. So let's copy the sleeping mask. Select and comments. See Copy outside Common. If to place it in the same place. In this case, we the background. We don't wanna do a sleeping mess, because way we really want to do is to cut this shape. Okay? We don't want to hide this part. We want to cut it. So select both mask and background shape. And let's go back to back Finder and Pinter sick. So now we have the shade, and it's got it to where we want. So you see, we have exactly the same right now. So what we want is to add a stroke and to make it okay. We actually wanted to be a week since right? That's a recommendation. And in the default position off the off the stroke, it's center to the line. So let's change that to make the strip to be outside that way. The's are a big sense. So so that's it. That's how you make it. So if if for some reason you wanna have just one shape is now what you have is a compound with a collar and stroke, you could just go to object and expand and then go to buy finder and, you know, and now you have, like, a bigger shape, which is one shape. If you resize the sticker, it will change the size of restroom. 3. Step 2 - Export from Illustrator: way gonna export all the stickers to make it weaker. I just create more words and plays the seekers in each port so we can export them at once. I'm gonna create a guide with the margin using these background that I already have. If you don't have it, just skating with big time. Goto dry it and make sure that is 500 pixels per 100. And we're gonna change the fallar. Uh, we just wanted to stroke. We don't want the collar. So since we need the margin off 16 big Selves, we'll go here to the shape size with the rectangle selected and type minus 32 and minus 32 . Okay, so that's gonna be our We have 16 years, 16 years here, De Wei are gonna go to the airport icon or win though airports and we'll add as many words as speakers. You have anything I have night, So nine. And now I'm gonna copy the guy clemency, and I'm gonna select each board and I'm gonna pasted in the same base using common. Just give selecting it word. Let's lock the guide slayer. Let's really that guy and I'm gonna start moving the seekers. Now we're gonna go cigarettes to make sure that they have within the guy. - Okay , so now let's guides the guides and let's go to Fire Sport, Sport for screens here, we can change the name of the off the I word. So it's gonna export with. Okay, make sure that you select that folder here. We want to change that to be a N g a. Okay, So Okay, so Okay, have my sneakers. You can see they have a fence, friend Ground and makes the will willing for damage to 4. Step 3 - Import to WhatsApp: So last step is to import stickers in what the first thing you will need to do is transfer Your Majesty rece my phone. I'm gonna do it using job books. But you could use one drives, connect the food to your computer or even email them to yourself. Okay, so now I'm with my phone and I have the drug books after open, I'm going in 20 minutes to export them to my camera. Now go to AC stir or gangster, depending whether you use an I use or Andre device. And with these up court sticker maker opening and tap to start that they create the name for your sticker to eat. I do at one sticker at the time that the gallery select the stickers and tap the right arrow to the next screen and then the sky because you see acts just close them by the gross cycle. I usually see them, but in this case, for some reason idea you doing the same for other secrets. As you can see, you can add a lot. You need to back when you have your seekers uploaded. Tap to at two at the APP is gonna import the seekers and open wide and basically that you now have your secrets back inwards up, and you can use it as you would use any other seekers.
