Apps to make stickers for WhatsApp can present different features, such as creating animated or text stickers and even make a caricature with your face from a selfie. Below, Techidence brings you five options of applications to make stickers for WhatsApp. The apps Sticker Maker Studio, Sticker.ly, and Mirror are free to download on Android and iPhone (iOS). TextSticker and Emoji MashUp are only available for Android.
Sticker Maker Studio
Sticker Maker Studio has a simple and functional user interface. It allows you to make various stickers for WhatsApp from a photo taken on the spot or from your phone’s gallery. Some of the photo cropping features are quite interesting, such as the smart selection that removes the background from the image. Another option is to make text-only stickers with different fonts and a palette of seven colors to choose from.
The application also features a community to see other people’s stickers and check out the most recently added and most downloaded stickers. It is possible to create animated stickers, but the feature requires a subscription of $2.99 for 7 days, $7.99 for a month, and $23.99 for a year.

The newest feature of the Sticker.ly app is the creation of GIFs. In addition to the range of ready-made stickers from the Sticker.ly app, you can create your pack using photos or GIFs. You can share the created content with your friends through custom links, and allow app users to view your stickers.
The app also has an auto-cropping option, which lets you remove the background of a photo. Sticker.ly also lets you customize your stickers with tools such as emojis and text. The packages made in the app must have at least three stickers and a maximum of 30.

TextSticker is an application for text stickers on WhatsApp. It allows you to create stickers with only writings and has different fonts and colors for customization. Another sticker option is to insert pictures in heart, circle, and leaf shapes, for example. The application allows you to select several photos at once to assemble a sticker package.
On the TextSticker homepage, you can see other users’ stickers and download them to your messenger. One advantage is to include hashtags when posting your sticker pack to make it easier to search for it in the app, but the feature is only available with a login. A disadvantage is the excessive ads in the app’s navigation.

Mirror allows you to create stickers directly from a selfie. It uses the image to detect the features and automatically create a caricature. If you wish, you can change the avatar after it is done by changing the hair color, nose shape, and eye color. You can also customize the drawing with accessories such as hats and glasses.
After the avatar creation, Mirror generates some sticker packs, and you can also create extra stickers with custom text to share on various social networks. Full access to the stickers is available for a fee ranging from $1.99 per month. The free version of Mirror displays the logo on the generated stickers.

Emoji MashUp is a kind of application that generates different and funny stickers by merging two or more emojis, for example, the face of one emoji with the mouth of another. The application has several packs of stickers ready to use. The downside is that it does not allow the user to create their sticker.
The app is free and it is very simple to add the packs to WhatsApp. Just select the pack you want to import and tap “Add to WhatsApp”. The Twitter profile @emojimashupbot is popular with posts of the various emoji junctions.
