How to Stick a Sticker on an iMessage Text Bubble

Hey! This is Kaye Champ, owner and illustrator of Pretty Girl Digitals. Today friends I’m going to quickly show you how to peel and layer chat stickers on text messages using the Lula Gif Emoji Sticker app, available now in the Apple App Store for $1.99. The Lula Gif Emoji Sticker app has over 50 emoji and animated sticker styles of a fun girl giving life to our everyday thoughts and expressions.

One of the reasons this cute emoji-style graphics are called stickers is because you can stick them on messages and quickly respond or share your thoughts on a friend’s text message. One of the things text conversations miss out on is our facial responses to what our friends are saying.

Instead of feeling like you have to write out response – who wants to be rude and not say anything back? What if you are busy on the run and need to quickly check in and respond? You simply select a sticker and peel on the message. It lets your friend know you heard them.  And what you are  thinking  in a personal way that words can’t adequately express.

Watch the quick tutorial or follow the steps below.

To start, Open a text thread from a contact.

To respond, select the App Store icon to the left of imessage window.

When you do that, the App store icon will turn blue. Along the bottom a browser window will appear. And underneath that, App icons of apps and stickers available to use with iMessage with also appear.


Scroll to choose a sticker.

The stickers available in that pack will appear in the browser window. Any sticker can be peeled to stick on a message.


With index finger, press the sticker and watch it wiggle and lift up. Press and slide up to selected message. At the same time, the selected message will slightly change colors to let you know it is “stickable” You can slide the sticker into whatever position you like. On top of message, to the side of the box, whatever you choose. Keep in mind that placing a sticker over a message can impede readability.

It takes a little dexterity, but you can also resize the sticker or rotate it before sticking on a message. But you have to keep your index finger on the sticker. Go ahead and play with it! It’s fun!


Enjoy and have fun! Go let a friend know your heard them with a quick and cute sticker on their message. It is easy to do with the Lula Gif Emoji Sticker Pack.  Thank you friends.
