Stickers on WhatsApp must be legal, authorized, and acceptable. Learn more about acceptable use of WhatsApp services at WhatsApp Legal Info.
We recommend you refer to the FAQ at WhatsApp Help Center - About creating stickers for WhatsApp for complete details on how to properly create your sticker art. This FAQ also contains a sample PSD that demonstrates best practices for composing legible, rich sticker art.
- A sticker is an image that has a transparent background and can be sent in a
- Stickers are organized into “packs”. Your app can contain anywhere from 1 to
10 packs. Users must explicitly add each pack to WhatsApp one-by-one, so your
app should list each pack separately and each pack must have its own
affordance to add it to WhatsApp (do not try to create “add all packs”
- Sticker packs must contain either static or animated stickers, never a mix of both
- Each sticker pack must have a minimum of 3 stickers and a maximum of 30
- Stickers must be exactly 512 x 512 pixels
- Stickers will render on a variety of backgrounds, white, black, colored, patterned, etc. Test your sticker art on a variety of backgrounds. For this reason, we recommend you add a 8px #FFFFFF stroke to the outside of each sticker. See the sample PSD referenced at WhatsApp Help Center - About creating stickers for WhatsApp for more details.
- Stickers must be in the WebP format. See the section Converting to WebP below for information on how to create WebP files.
- Each static sticker must be less than or equal to 100KB and each animated sticker must be less than or equal to 500KB. See the section Tips for Reducing File Size below.
- Animated stickers must have frames with minimum duration of 8ms. Animation duration should be less than or equal to 10 seconds total.
- For animated stickers, the first frame should say it all - WhatsApp ends the animation on the first frame after looping so please make sure your first frame is the complete image of your sticker and adjust the sequence of the stickers accordingly so users don’t see a jumpy experience going from the last to first frame. Ex. A sticker that animated “Hi!” should have the first frame show all words “Hi!”.
- Sticker Picker/Tray Icon
- Provide an image that will be used to represent your sticker pack in the WhatsApp sticker picker/tray
- This image should be static and 96 x 96 pixels
- Max file size of 50KB
We recommend reducing the size of each of your stickers. For reference, many of the stickers provided within WhatsApp are around 15KB each. The smaller your stickers, the faster they will send and the less data your users will have to spend sending them or downloading your app. Depending on your art and the type of graphics you’ve created, one of these two methods may result in smaller file sizes so we recommend experimenting with both.
- The first method involves optimizing your PNGs using a PNG optimizer tool. If you’re on MacOS, use https://pngmini.com. We recommend using Median Cut and adjusting the colors bar to reduce the size. If you’re on Windows, use Pngyu to optimize your PNGs. Then, convert them to WebP using the methods described in the Converting to WebP section.
- The second method involves saving or converting your stickers as WebP while experimenting with the WebP export settings trying to optimize the images. You should try setting the quality of your WebP output to something lower than 100% and experiment with a quality level that gets you the smallest file size possible without noticeable image degradation. Each of the methods described in Converting to WebP for exporting your files to WebP offer ways to control your resolution.
Your sticker art must be in the WebP format. We recommend using the tools you’re most comfortable with to draw and compose your art, and converting them to WebP using one of a few different tools:
- Sketch for Mac lets you export files as WebP. Open your sticker art file in Sketch, select a layer, multiple layers, or an artboard, and select Make Exportable in the bottom right. Pick your format as WebP, select Export, and then select the quality/resolution.
- Android Studio allows you to convert PNGs to WebP. Simply create a new project in Android Studio, open your PNG and right click on the image and select convert to WebP (https://developer.android.com/studio/write/convert-webp). Make sure you uncheck the box next to “Skip images with transparency/alpha channel” in the export flow.
- You can install a plugin for Photoshop that converts to WebP. Make sure to uncheck the “Save Metadata” checkbox. Some users have experienced problems with using the webp files generated from Photoshop. If you have problems, we suggest you create PNG files, and use Android Studio to do the conversion.
- Use cwebp, a command line tool
- Use squoosh, an online browser tool, by the Google Chrome Labs
- 15 dollars (For paypal and international payments)
- 900INR (UPI payments)
