Making stickers for your motorcycle helmet is a simple matter. In creating your own stickers, use copy-free images, such as those found in clip art sites or on CDs, to avoid copyright infringement. Or use your own artistic talents and draw or paint the image you'll use. That way, the sticker will be truly unique. Because you'll use a computer, the image can be resized from the original to be made smaller or larger.

Create or select an image for your sticker. You can find many copy-free images on the Internet, or you can scan in original art you did yourself. Put the image on your computer in a program such as Photoshop.
Rework the image. If need be, resize the image to the dimensions desired. In Photoshop, once you have the image open, click "Image" on the toolbar then select "Image size" from the pull down menu. If you have the "Constrain image" box checked, change the width or the height, and the other will adjust automatically to keep your image in proportion. To lighten the image, click on "Adjust." To print, simply select "Print" from your "File" menu options.
Print the image on Inkjet decal paper. This creates your homemade sticker.
Cut out the decal sticker from the printed page. Cut carefully around the sticker, leaving only a thin, transparent edge.
Peel off the backing and apply your sticker to your helmet.
Tips and warnings
- Remember that the printable image cannot be larger than 8 1/2 by 11 inches. An image that large is undesirable as the sticker is going over a curved surface, and the larger the image, the more it will crease when applied.
