Have you ever asked yourself “how do I create an outline around my graphic?”

Well, it’s a very simple process that can be done by using an Illustrator effect called Offset Path. Have you heard of “Offset Path”? It basically expands your vector shapes automatically by whatever dimension you tell it to. Check out how easy it is with either vector or raster-based files in this quick tutorial.

So by creating a duplicate of your vector shape and using Pathfinder to “unite” the entire shape. You can then apply the offset path to outline your graphic.

The main reason for doing this. Is when printing very complex and detailed shapes the outline will hold everything together and make it one sticker. Easier to apply and handle. Especially when using our restickable and removable StickleMe decals. That can be peeled off and reapplied multiple times. We hope we were able to help you figure out how to make custom shaped outline stickers!
