If you're good at conjuring up attention-grabbing designs and phrases, you just might have what it takes to design bumper stickers. Creating a professional-looking bumper sticker that's ready for sale takes just minutes online. You can establish an online store or have the bumper stickers mailed to your home. Either way, they're a fun commodity likely to sell. Whether you design the artwork yourself or choose to arrange text and images, making and selling bumper stickers is an easy, quick way to make extra cash.
Plan your bumper sticker design. Make a sketch, and experiment with colors and images. If you plan to include words in your design, take time to edit and revise. Keep your intended message in mind and ask yourself if it's clear. The most attractive bumper stickers are bold but simple.
Browse sites such as Zazzle and CafePress (see the "Resources" section for links) that allow you to both customize and sell products online. Look through their bumper sticker pricing and package offers, and decide which one best suits your needs. You may want to order a few hundred to sell in your online store, or maybe you'll want 30 or 40 sent to your home to sell at a local event. These sites generally have very flexible pricing and ordering options.
Read the site's instructions for uploading images for bumper sticker customization before you make the final design on your computer. It should say what file types, sizes, and other specifications are acceptable.
Create and save the final design using an imaging program such as Adobe Photoshop. If you are using the images and fonts provided by the website's customization tool instead, experiment with those they provide until you find the design you like best.
Upload and finalize the design. Then, select whether you would like to sell the bumper stickers online or have them mailed to you. If you choose the online option, use the site's "store" or "marketplace" function to create a listing for your bumper sticker design.
