How to Pin Stickers to your TikTok Videos: A Complete Guide

Posted February 27, 2020 by Sheraz Ali in Tik Tok

Instagram introduced stickers for their Instagram stories ages ago. And TikTok, adamant to their conservative ways, didn’t follow in its stead. Well, until now. Finally, the controversial and highly popular social media giant has integrated the pin stickers feature in their app. And the initial reactions have been mostly positive. Many popular TikTok-ers have pounced upon the opportunity to use it, and make their videos more interactive and fun. The inventory of TikTok stickers is still limited. Unlike Instagram that lets you add polls, background music, even quiz stickers, TikTok seriously lags behind. However, considering, it’s something relatively new for the platform, we will still count it as a step in the right direction.

Tips to Use TikTok Stickers Accurately

Nothing trumps creativity. You can use the aforementioned steps to get a basic understanding of how this feature works. But, to really make a mark with TikTok stickers, you have to learn how to position and use them with gripping command.

Here are a few tips and techniques to steer you in the right direction.

  • Decide how long the sticker is going to appear in the video. This decision will depend upon the length of your video, and the utility of the sticker. For instance, if after a certain point in the video, feels unneeded, make sure the settings are adjusted in a way that doesn’t appear beyond that point.

  • The positioning of the stickers also needs some thinking. You can’t pin the sticker anywhere where the focal point of the video, unless the focal point is the sticker itself. Remember, you don’t want it to mask the charm of your video. You want to accentuate it.

  • Make sure the app is updated to the latest version to ensure the stickers update is in fact there. For some users, the update might not be there, which means that the TikTok creative department is still rolling it out to them.
