We’ve all been in the position where we are about to post an Instagram story, we add the text, but there’s just a little more flare that we want to add to it. We open the Instagram stickers, but there are so many options and you just don’t know where to start. You want those cute Instagram stickers to make your stories stand out among the rest and you want those Instagram stickers to match your aesthetic.
Over the years of posting, I found myself going down rabbit hole after rabbit hold looking for cute Instagram stickers, and after awhile I found ones that I stick to while also having my own custom Instagram stickers made for my brand.
I’ve rounded up a list of some of the best Instagram stickers that you can use to make your stories pop.
What is an INSTAGRAM STICKER?
An Instagram sticker is custom gift that has been created by someone to use on your Instagram stories. Don’t think of them as the gifs that you typically send to friends or family in text messages to add a fun little note to a conversation. Instead, think of them as aesthetically pleasing images that make your stories have more design elements added than the image or video that you are sharing.
Your Instagram sticker can also direct people as to how to interact with your story such as telling them to make sure their sound is on or telling them to wait towards the end. You can also direct them as to what to pay attention to with arrows or circling the most important information.
How to Use INSTAGRAM STICKERS
To find Instagram stickers and add them to your stories, you first need to create an Instagram story. Once you click the add button and select ‘Story’, film your story or add a pre-made video or photo. Then in the top right corner, click the button that looks like a sticky note with a smiley face on it. Another screen will pop up from the bottom and on that screen. At this point, you are accessing all of stickers that Instagram allows you to add on stories. Below, I provide a list of all the different types, but in this post we are specifically going to focus on the stickers found in GIF as those are the ones that you’ll find customized and particular to the aesthetic you are looking to create.
Types of INSTAGRAM STICKERS
There are different types of Instagram stickers. The types come down to what you want to use. Outside of the GIF option, which I’ve provided a list of cute Instagram stickers below, there are:
- Hashtag stickers
- Mention Stickers
- Geotag stickers
- Poll stickers
- Question stickers
- Countdown stickers
- Music stickers
- Caption stickers
