Stickers: how to upload them?

If you’re thinking about finding your way into the sticker world, the first thing you have to do is registering as a Flaticon contributor.

For those new to Flaticon ➡️ Flaticon is part of Freepik Company and one of the leading databases of free icons. The uploading process is similar to Freepik’s.

Once you register as a Flaticon contributor, you can start uploading your stickers.

Wait. Are they icons?As a matter of fact, stickers look similar to icons, their function might be related, but they are conceptually different. Stickers are more elaborated designs, that allow the designers to include more elements (such as lettering, emotions, details, etc.), and are usually more playful than icons.

Upload requirements:

✅ Stickers, as well as icons, are uploaded in a pack (minimum 20 stickers).

✅ Stickers must be uploaded in .svg format

✅ Make sure all stickers within a pack share the same concept.

✅ You can also send your stickers to Freepik. In this case, you must group them in a set (four or five stickers) and work with .eps format.

You’ll find more information on our support page and the contributor panel.
