How to add stickers to your TikTok videos. Instagram introduced Stickers for stories years ago. TikTok as always very conservative, to this day, has not followed the trend. As we said, until now. The controversial and very popular social media giant has integrated the stickers feature into its app. And the initial reactions were mostly positive.
Many famous TikTokers have taken the opportunity to add Stickers to the most interactive and funniest TikTok videos. TikTok's sticker inventory is still limited. Unlike Instagram, which allows you to add polls, background music and even quiz Stickers, TikTok is far behind. However, considering it's something relatively new to the platform, we'll still see it as a step in the right direction. Let's take a look at how to attach Stickers to your TikTok videos.
The newly launched feature will allow TikTok users to add Stickers to their videos when creating content. When pasted, the sticker will become an object in the clip. It will remain in place even as the creator moves through the video. Users will also have the option to resize the sticker in relation to the movement of the video.

How to make stickers for TikTok? Stickers are trending on all social networks. Facebook was the first to add them to Messenger and the trend took off and spread like wildfire. TikTok, being a very popular platform, of course, comes with stickers. Many want to know how to customize TikTok stickers. Read on and we'll show you how to make stickers for TikTok.
Recently, TikTok partnered with Giphy. Unfortunately, the partnership doesn't mean that everyone can make custom stickers for TikTok. Only a select number of famous TikTokers have managed to create their stickers, including Benoftheweek, Gabe and DreaKnowbest.
This feature will surely become more accessible in the future, but for now, Giphy selects people who can make their own custom stickers. You can use the official Giphy website to request your artist or branded channel.
You will need to log in to the Giphy website and meet their requirements. Not to discourage you, but the chances of anyone getting their TikTok stickers this way are pretty slim. This collaboration between Giphy and TikTok is a big one and looks promising. We will have to wait and see what will happen and how many new stickers will come to TikTok.

Tips for careful use of TikTok stickers
Nothing beats creativity. You can use the steps above to get a basic understanding of how this feature works. But, to really make a mark with TikTok Stickers, you must learn how to place and use them with a compelling command.
Here are some tips and techniques to guide you in the right direction.
- Decide how long the sticker will appear on the video. This decision will depend on the length of the video and the usefulness of the sticker. For example, if after a certain point in the video it is useless, make sure the setting is adjusted so that it does not appear beyond that point.
- Sticker placement also requires some thought. It is not possible to fix the sticker anywhere in the focal point of the video, unless the focal point is the sticker itself. Remember, you don't want it to mask the charm of your video. You want to accentuate it.
- Make sure the app is updated to the latest version to make sure the sticker update is actually there. For some users, the update may not be available, which means that TikTok's creative department is still rolling it out.
