If you’re brand spanking new to the planning world you’ll definitely want to lock down some essential stickers like our FREE functional planner stickers! All of the printable functional planner stickers in this post are 100% color coordinated and should fit just about any medium sized planner (like the Happy Planner classic or Erin Condren).
We have a lot of stickers on this site but most of them are for people who LOVE to decorate their planners to the nines. I personally love doing this with my monthly spread but I keep my days pretty functional with just some basic stickers and light decorating.
What do I print these FREE functional stickers on?
I like to print out all my stickers on this glossy white sticker paper PERIOD. Glossy paper prints true to color (unlike matte sticker papers that absorb lots of ink and look faded/pixelated). You can also print our free printable Star Wars planner stickers on this clear sticker paper (which has gloss and prints true to color). Clear stickers are easy to place anywhere on your planner without interfering with the functional layout of a planner (lines/grids etc).
How do I cut stickers out?
I use a Cricut Cutting Machine to cut out all my stickers. We provide you with a transparent PNG file which can be uploaded to EITHER Cricut Design Space or Silhouette Cutting Machine software. If you want to use a cutting machine you’ll need to “import” our transparent PNG file into your cutting machines design software and turn it into a “print then cut” file. There is no need to convert the file to an SVG (for Cricut) or STUDIO file (for Silhouette). Both machines accept transparent PNGs.
Okay, let’s check out what I made for you guys! If you’re looking for basic, functional, printable planner stickers that’ll look great with just about every planner & every layout…you’ve come to the right place! We’re going to be adding lots of stickers to this post over the near term so be sure to join our FREE email subscribers list so you never miss a printable!
#1 FREE Redating Functional Planner Stickers
These stickers are super handy when you’re using an old planner or maybe a planner you got on sale that is out of date. You can use these stickers to redate any of the monthly or daily pages to make them correct for the year you are actually planning in. When I see a planner that I like I buy it….but I only use 2 planners a year (one for work and one for personal). I use redate stickers to correct an out of date planner that may be a year or two old. If you plan on doing this you’ll also want to grab the month/year redate stickers coming up next.
#2 FREE Month/Year Redating Functional Planner Stickers
#3 FREE Checklist Functional Planner Stickers
These cute and colorful checklist stickers are great for your to-do lists. You can fill in the heart, star or hexagon as you knock items off of your list! These are a total must have, basic planner sticker.
#4 FREE Hexagon Functional Planner Stickers
If you follow many planner babes on instagram you’ve probably seen a layout or two that incorporates this unusual polygon. I love using them for high level goal setting for the month or even the year. I love how they fit together like a honey comb and the fit nicely into the sidebar of the monthly. You can layer pretty, feminine stickers on top of the hexagon for a really cool aesthetic.
#5 FREE Attention Grabbing Functional Planner Stickers
I call this planner sticker page “attention grabbers”! They’re meant to bring attention to important meetings, dates, appointments or to write down what your thankful for in the form of gratitude. I layer these stickers on top of the hexagon, full boxes or half boxes to make note of important events coming up. We have full boxes and half boxes coming up on our list so keep scrolling…
#6 FREE To Do Functional Planner Stickers
These “to do” list stickers a meant to draw attention to the daily, weekly or monthly to do lists we serial planners are ALWAYS making. You can also layer these on top of our full size boxes or half boxes (which make great “to do” lists).
#7 FREE Full Size Boxes Functional Planner Stickers
These full size boxes are great for the sidebar on your monthly pages or fit perfectly for those who use the vertical Happy Planner layout style. They’re great for making lists, setting goals or bringing attention to important things using our “attention grabber” stickers from earlier in this post. There are two pages included so we could provide you with every color in the rainbow!
#8 FREE Half Size Boxes Functional Planner Stickers
Here are our half size box planner stickers and they’ll work very much like the full size boxes above. These smaller boxes are great for writing down appointments or meetings and layering on one of our “attention grabber” labels from earlier in the post. They’ll fit pretty much anywhere on any type of planner!
#9 FREE Circle Functional Planner Stickers
I like to use these free functional planner stickers much like the hexagons from earlier. I love using them for high level goal setting for the month or even the year. I love how they can layer nicely into the sidebar of the monthly. You can add tons of pretty, feminine stickers on top of the hexagon for great contrast. OR just use them to bring attention to an important upcoming event or date like birthdays and anniversaries.
#10 FREE Bill Pay Functional Planner Stickers
So these stickers are actually from my FREE Budget Planner Inserts post but I thought they would make a great addition to this post because they are functional and match (color wise) perfectly with all our other functional planner stickers. If you’re looking to get your finances organized be sure to check out that post before you leave today!
#11 FREE Payday/Deposit Functional Planner Stickers
If you like to celebrate payday everyweek (who doesn’t) or just like to keep track of deposits for budgeting purposes we think you’ll put these stickers to good use! These stickers compliment our FREE Budget Planner Inserts and are a perfect color match.
#12 FREE Cleaning List Functional Planner Stickers
#13 FREE Work Schedule Functional Planner Stickers
These work schedule planner stickers are great for those people who work unpredictable shifts every week. You could also use these to keep track of the hours you’ve worked if you’re a part timer and want to keep records. In either case, you’ll easily be able to layout your entire weeks schedule on the monthly and daily planner pages. We also have these stickers in some slightly different colors that you can check out HERE from a previous post (if you think you might want more color variety).
#14 FREE Cancelled Functional Planner Stickers
With the recent nation wide quarantine here in the United States and around the world….your short and long term plans may have just completely blown up. Instead of mucking up your pretty planner with cross outs we think you can place these “cancelled!” stickers over top of them. We created these stickers to mimic bright and colorful neon signs and hopefully they are a bright & cheery spot in your planner.
