AOne Labelyasan Photo Stickers/Seal Review

There are many ways to print photos for your planner/journal/travelers notebook. From buying dedicated printers like the fuji instax SP and the Canon Selphy to taking your photos to your local print shop or buying your own photo paper to print at home, they all have their pros and cons but my favourite way to add a photo to my weekly layout without adding overall bulk to the notebook are these pre cut printer friendly sticker sheets from Labelyasan (House of Labels).






The stickers come in 2 versions, high resolution and diary/planner. I use the diary/planner version exclusively because they come in a variety of sizes and shapes that fit into most planner formats so it's convenient.  






Each pack comes with 5 sheets of pre cut stickers, an instruction sheet for the software, instructions for printer settings and a test sheet (non sticker). The software is downloadable from the website but there's also a web interface and a free iphone app (unfortunately, your printer will need to be airprint compatible to use the app).






Unfortunately, all the software is in Japanese only but the iphone app is the easiest to use out of the 3 (If you'd like to see an english user guide, please comment below and let me know!) 
I usually do basic editing and slap a filter on the photos before I open the app. In the app, you pick which product you use, you can also perform a search using the product code on your sticker pack. It then takes you into a template, pick you photos and do basic editing like picking the cut area, rotating and copy/paste.  (note: you should allow for some allowance on the edges, this makes sure that you photos are printed edge to edge). 

Watch the official video from AOne on how the app works. 






After you've finished setting up your sheet, connect to your airprint enabled printer and send to print! If it's your first time, I recommend using the test sheet that's been included so you won't waste any of your sticker paper). The print quality of these are similar to using a home printer and photo paper but on a smaller scale.  






I personally prefer the print quality of these stickers over the LG photo printer, which also has sticker paper sheets, albeit uncut. Where can you get these? We're working on putting these in the store, so watch this space! 

Pros: 

  • good quality
  • pre cut
  • easy to use app

Cons: 

  • Japanese only software
  • Not portable, unless you have a full sized travel printer

  1. These look very interesting. If you do decide to sell it in your shop, English version of the instructions will be very helpful. I'm interested. Thank you for sharing!
