Sticker in Photoshop

For creating a sticker in Photoshop we only need some simple layer styles that you can add to any text, vector or raster layer. Start with a colorful background. Type any text you like using your favorite font and/or add a custom shape like shown in the image.

Open the layer style window and add the following layer styles for the Text Layer

For the Color Overlay you can use any color you like; I've used #c24dc1

The Gradient Overlay contains a grayscale gradient map with the following colors/locations: #7d7d7d/0%, #6e6e6e/20%, #565656/45%, #cfcfcf/45%, #a7a7a7,100%

The Stroke color is #f4f4f4; you can choose any color you want and any stroke size depending on your font/object size.

Copy layer style and paste layer style to the Vector Shape Layer; you can change the color overlay.
