This is a great way of adding your personal touch to your conversations with friends and family. If you like drawing or enjoy being creative, read this oneHOWTO article and find out how to create Telegram stickers.

Design your sticker

First of all, you need to create your stickers using Photoshop, Illustrator or similar. Remember to save your pictures in a dimension of 512 x 512 pixels and in PNG extension.

We recommend you optimize the .png file as much as possible in order to upload and download the stickers quicker. Remember that the images are going to be seen on the screen of a mobile phone, so the quality doesn't need to be very high.

To upload your created pictures to Telegram, it's best if you use the Telegram app from your computer. To do so, we recommend using ARC Welder, the official Android program to use your apps on a PC. For iPhone users, use the equivalent program.

Step by Step: Upload your sticker to Telegram

  1. Install the app and access your Telegram account.
  2. Once on Telegram, you'll need to start a chat with @stickers bot. To do so you'll need to mention @stickers bot in any of your pre-existing chat-rooms and click on @stickers.
  3. Start the chat in a conversation window and you can say anything to the @stickers bot regarding how to create the sticker.
  4. The Stickers Bot will automatically answer and will give you the necessary instructions on how to create stickers. At this point the @stickers bot will send you the following sets of commands. The commands are as follows:/newstickerpack : You'll be able to create a new pack of stickers./addsticker : This allows you to create a new sticker to an pre-existing pack./delsticker : You can also delete a sticker from a pack./ordersticker: This will allow you to create an order for the stickers in a pack./cancel: This command will be helpful if you want to cancel previous actions.
  5. The first step will be to tell the Bot Sticker that you want to create a new pack of stickers. Send /newstickerpack to the conversation.
  6. The @stickers bot will ask for a name for the new pack of stickers. After sending the name @stickers bot will ask for emojis that will be tied to your sticker. Telegram recommends you to have a maximum of two emojis for every sticker.
  7. When you have sent the emojis you will be able to upload the sticker to @sticker bot. Just drop the PNG file to the Telegram window. Then select the "without compression" option. We recommend you not doing it with the option in a "quick way".
  8. To upload another sticker you have to repeat the above step for all stickers you've created. For each set, Telegram only allows 30 stickers. After uploading all the stickers you can publish the pack of stickers writing type /publish.
  9. Then, the @sticker bot will ask you to create a name for the ending of the sticker URL address so that you can upload your sticker file on Telegram and share it with everyone else too.
  10. After sending the short name, your sticker pack is ready to be used. Download it on your smartphone version of Telegram and share your creativity with the world!
