Easy Step-by-Step How To Create a GoodNotes Sticker Book

Wondering what a GoodNotes sticker book is and how to make one? Here’s an easy step-by-step tutorial on how to create a GoodNotes Sticker Book.

When I was starting digital planning I came across digital sticker books for GoodNotes and I had no idea what they were or how to create them.

I had to search for quite some time before I found out what these digital planning sticker files for GoodNotes were.

I thought that there would be others like me, so I decided to make this post to explain exactly what these books are and how you can create a GoodNotes Sticker Book.

When you have these sticker books you don’t have to import PNG sticker files yourself to your note-taking application, if you need help with that you can check my post on how to import digital stickers for GoodNotes.

Be sure to follow along in the video too as it makes it so much easier to copy as I show you the process.

What are GoodNotes Sticker Books?

A GoodNotes sticker book is a file containing a variety of pre-cropped digital stickers that work with the GoodNotes app.

If you make Digital Stickers to sell, these sticker books are very easy to share with your customers and make their lives much easier because they don’t have to import the stickers themselves. The file already contains the stickers that are ready to use.

They just need to import this one file and be able to use all the stickers inside it.

How exactly do we create them? I’ll walk you through the steps to create your own Digital Sticker book below.

How To Create A GoodNotes Sticker Book?

To start, open the GoodNotes App on your device.

For my personal use, I first create a template for my sticker books. You can create one yourself or just create a blank document in GoodNotes to add all your stickers too. The template I am using in the video is just a PDF page with my brand colors.

Now, to create the stickers book you will have to import all your stickers inside the document you have just created. So here I’m basically doing the job that my customer won’t have to do.

The easiest way to import stickers is by splitting the screen and dragging and dropping the images into the notebook you have choosen.

To do that, swipe up gently from the bottom of the screen until you see the dock, now drag your images folder and drop it on the side.

Import the stickers one by one by dragging and dropping them onto the document. At this point don’t worry about resizing or organizing them, just send them to the app.

When you’re done swipe to the side to get the full view of GoodNotes again.

Now you must resize and organize the digital stickers around the page by using the ‘lasso’ or the ‘image’ tool. This may take a while.

Now that all these stickers are in place, it’s time to export the sticker books.

Go back to the GoodNotes library and find the sticker book file. Tap on the little arrow beside the file name, then click on ‘export all’.

You will be given the option to export as a PDF, an image, or as a GoodNotes file. You want to export your Digital Sticker Book as a GoodNotes file.

Choose the location to save your new sticker book and you’re done!

Now when a customer buys these stickers, they can just import this book, in much the same way they would import a digital planner. And they will be able to use all stickers straight away.

This nifty solution here is not just for GoodNotes users, you can create stickers books for Noteshelf, Notability, and any other app that allows you to export files in their own app format.

    Is It Worth The Time To Make Digital Sticker Books For GoodNotes?

    I know you might be wondering if all this is worth the time.

    Obviously, you are the only one to know what your time is worth, but just understand that this does add convenience to your customer, and they might prefer buying from stores that go the extra mile to make things as simple as possible for them.

    I also had beta testers when I first started and before I launched my Etsy store and many of them said they prefer stores that they know will give them these GoodNotes stickers.

    So it’s definitely something to consider. It’s very likely you’ll sell items without offering these books but GoodNotes is at the present the most popular app for digital planners and you can give yourself an edge by providing them.

    I have this little tip if you’re worried about the time you spend doing this task. Is there something else you can do while creating these digital stickers in GoodNotes? I combine this task with other tasks that I can do at the same time and this makes me feel like I’m being productive and useful to my customers at the same time.

    For instance, you can listen to an Audiobook while you make these digital sticker notebooks. By splitting the view on your iPad you can even watch Netflix while you do it too 🙂
