Types of Snapchat stickers

Once you’ve opened the sticker tool, you’ll find the icon for each type of sticker on the top of your screen. We’ll go through each of them in order now.

Recent Snapchat stickers

Recent Snapchat stickers are just what they sound like – these are the images you have used most recently. If your recent stickers section isn’t full, Snapchat will automatically fill it with popular emojis.


Snapchat’s recommended stickers

The sticker for snapchat recommended stickers automatically appears when you open the sticker tool. These include the time stamp as well as stickers for the day of the week or time of day. In the screenshot below, you can see the multiple stickers for Wednesday, as well as “Good night” and “sleep tight” stickers since it’s after 9:00 p.m. In addition, you’ll see suggested Bitmoji stickers. (More about those in a moment!)


Custom Snapchat stickers

Custom Snapchat stickers are the stickers you create yourself. In the next section, I’ll walk you through how to make a sticker. While we’re looking at the types of stickers, keep in mind this is where you can find all of your creations.


Bitmoji stickers

Bitmojis are my favorite type of sticker for snapchat. They are perfect for the times when I’m not feeling that clever; Bitmoji has done all of the creative thinking for me!


Bitmoji stickers have a second icon menu at the bottom of your screen:


Each of these icons represents an emotion you’d like to convey with your Bitmoji. The “wave” icon, for example, is emphasized in the screenshot above. And – surprise! – a lot of my proposed Bitmojis are waving to each other.

Emoji stickers

Emojis have become a standard aspect of communication in today’s social media world. Snapchat’s emotions are no different. The final sticker for snapchat option contains the basic emojis found in text messages and other social media platforms.


While there is no icon for GIFs on snapchat stickers names, you can still send animated sticker for snapchat. This feature was introduced in February 2018, when Snapchat incorporated GIF stickers from GIPHY, providing Snapchat users the same animated experience as Instagram users.
