How to create your own stickers on Viber

Viber is a free, cross-platform, voice-over, and messaging app, and is compatible with iOS, Android, Windows, Linux, and macOS platforms.

By default, Viber will have the basic stickers available. But, the app also allows you to create custom stickers or edit existing stickers. Read on to learn how to do this.

Creation of your personalized stickers

If you have ever visited the sticker market in the Viber app, you would have seen that there are many free and premium stickers available for download. All of the premium stickers cost around $ 1.99 per pack, but there are plenty of free options you can play around with.

To download any of them, just tap the download icon next to the sticker pack and the download will start automatically.

However, you don’t have to pay for the stickers if you are just making your own. Moreover, Viber gives you a lot of freedom to create stickers!

Step 1: install the app

The first thing to do is to install the Viber app on your phone. This is a free app and you can download Viber for PC or search for Viber in Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Step 2: Go to Create Stickers option

When you open Viber on your phone, click on one of your contacts in the app. At the bottom of the screen you have a little bear icon, which will open the stickers that you have already installed on your phone.


There is a big purple + sign at the bottom right of the screen. Once you tap it, select Create stickers.

Step 3: Create your first personalized sticker

Once you have selected the Create stickers option, you will have your custom sticker pack. There you can give the sticker pack a name and description.

After that you need to press the + sign, which will give you three options. You can import the photo from your phone’s gallery, you can take a photo with your camera, or you can just doodle.

If you press the Gallery option, you can choose any picture from your phone’s gallery. Select the image you want to create in a sticker and you will have many options to play with.

Viber allows you to remove the background, trace the image, add text, add existing stickers or just doodle on the image. Once you’re done editing your sticker, just tap Save sticker, and you’ll see it in your sticker pack.

If you want to make more stickers, click the + sign again, and choose the type of sticker you want to create.

A sticker pack can hold up to 24 stickers and you can edit them at any time.

Editing an existing sticker

If you want to edit an existing Viber sticker, you can choose the Just doodle option.

This will give you a completely blank canvas where you can draw or write whatever you want, and you will have a transparent background.

In the lower half of the screen there will be the same little bear icon, leading you to all the stickers you have installed in the app. Just tap on this icon and choose the sticker you want to change.

You can change the size of the sticker, add text, add more stickers or just doodle on it. After that, press the Save sticker button, and it will appear in your pack.

Step 4: Save Your Custom Sticker Pack

Once you are done adding your stickers to your sticker pack, tap Create a pack. This option will only be available after you give your sticker pack a name. Adding the description is optional, but it’s a great way to make it easier to find.

You can also choose to make your sticker pack private or public. This option is just above the Create a pack button.

If your sticker pack is public, others will be able to view and download it from the Sticker Marketplace. If you make it private, only you can use the stickers.

Add / remove stickers

After creating your sticker pack, you can add and remove stickers whenever you want. To do this, open your sticker pack and tap the pen icon indicated at the bottom left of the screen.

This will open your sticker pack, where you can change the name and description of the pack. You can also remove the stickers by clicking the button small X button in the upper right corner of the sticker.

You can add more stickers to your sticker pack by pressing the + icon. After making your changes, just tap Update Pack.

If you want to remove the sticker pack completely, you need to install the app on your PC. Once done, click on the little bear icon at the bottom of the app. This will open all the stickers you installed in the app on the right side of the screen.

Viber application on PC

At the bottom of the sticker manager, there is a arrow pointing up. Click on it, then click on the adjustment wheel.

Here you will be able to move and hide all stickers in your Viber app. Locate the custom sticker pack you created, click the trash can icon next to your stickers, and click To delete.

Try to create your stickers elsewhere first

The easiest way to make stickers with a clean, transparent background is to make them somewhere else first.

Although Viber allows you to erase the background of an image, you do so with your fingers. It can end up looking pretty messy.

However, you can create the sticker you want to add to Viber in other programs like Canva, Photoshop, PaintTool SAI, CorelDRAW and others. Once you’ve created your sticker, add it to your phone’s gallery and import it into Viber!
