You can now submit your own stickers to be available through BBM!

If you've ever wanted to submit your own stickers to be available through BBM, you can now do so through the new BBM Sticker Factory and possibly have your stickers published as well as earn prizes!

Calling All Sticker Artists! Be Discovered on BBM Sticker Factory

We first brought stickers to BBM in February 2014. Since then, we've held numerous BBM sticker contests in our busiest markets around the world. It's a way to grow our inventory with more stickers and new characters to keep up with demand, add local flavor, and give up-and-coming artists an opportunity to publish their work to a wider audience.

These contests have been very popular—and have brought such wonderful stickers to BBM—that we've decided to keep the contest going all year long!

How It Works

BBM Sticker Factory is the official portal for sticker artists. Simply visit the website, create an account and submit your stickers for review.

BBM will review all submitted stickers, and choose the best ones for publishing. If we pick yours, we'll confirm that you want to publish them, and then we'll post them on the global BBM Sticker Shop in Discover for users worldwide to download and share!

Monthly Winners and Prizes

Even better, at the end of each month, we'll award prizes to the creators of the top five most popular sticker packs. Those prizes include a chance to share in the sales of the stickers.

Submit Your Stickers Today

Take a look at the guidelines, which provide all the details about size, format, resolution, content and accompanying text.

Participation is free. You don't need to have a BBM account, and you can submit as many sticker packs as you like.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the great sticker packs you'll create!

To be perfectly honest, I'm not entirely sure why it has taken BBM this long to open the doors to such options, but I'm glad to see there's some movement in this area, even if it's not my preferred way of rolling out such features. Personally, I'd like to see the ability to create my own stickers and use them, skipping the whole submission and review process, much like Telegram offers but I guess BBM just isn't ready to make that move yet.

Still, this is a great option for artists who are creating stickers to get their work out there and potentially earn some money from doing so. Plus, folks have been asking for wider options for BBM Stickers since they started being available so this is certainly a step in the right direction.
