Make Stickers Out of 35mm Slide Film

Our camera stickers are fun, but for something more personal you can make your own 35mm film stickers. All you need is a sticker making machine that usually costs between $10-$20 online or in your local craft store. You can use any film you’d like, though slide film is recommended because it’ll give you positive image stickers. With film manufacturers struggling, any reason to buy more film is a good reason!
