How to Get Your GIFs into Instagram Stories Sticker Search
Have you ever wondered how artists and designers on Instagram are getting their GIFs into Instagram stories search for anyone to use? This tutorial will show you everything you need to know!
I did the whole process from start to finish and want to share a few tips with you so you can learn the whole process from creating GIFs to applying and getting your GIFs in sticker search.
A few GIF tips before we get started:
Transparent Backgrounds – All GIFs for Instagram stickers should have transparent backgrounds, so be sure to turn off that white background layer in Procreate!
Stickers are Tiny! – Remember that stickers only take up about 1/8 of the screen on stories, so don’t put any tiny elements or text in your GIFs that could become unreadable.

So…what do you get out of it?
You don’t get paid or have your name featured when someone uses your GIF, so it’s really just a way to engage with your audience and share your work with the world. If you have any questions about the process, leave a comment or send me a message on the About/Contact page above!
