Juneteenth stickers are a great addition to any planner to celebrate Juneteenth. They are perfect to use in a planner spread during the week of June 19th.
The celebration of Juneteenth for many is a newer tradition despite being celebrated by many since 1865. It has been celebrated by many, especially within the black community, for decades, and became an official holiday in Texas in 1979. I fully admit that I was ignorant and did not know of the holiday or the reasoning behind it until recent years.
In 2021, the United States made Juneteenth an official federal holiday. The history of Juneteenth is finally being shared more widely and as time goes on, many more people are having community gatherings to hold Juneteenth celebrations.
What is Juneteenth?
Below, I have a very short explanation of the history behind Juneteenth. But, in no way is my shortened version a good enough or thorough enough explanation of the holiday. Instead, I would like to share some links to some resources where you can read to find out more about this important holiday.
- Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s explanation of Juneteenth on PBS.com (while this is an older article, it really does a great job of explaining why this specific date was chosen)
- The National Museum of African American History & Culture’s explanation of Juneteenth
- The National Museum of African American History & Culture’s resource for how to teach children about Juneteenth
In short, despite the Emancipation Proclamation being signed in 1863, thousands and thousands of black people were still wrongfully enslaved. Juneteenth is the celebration of the day the Union soldiers (including thousands of previously enslaved black people) invaded Texas to take control of the state and to begin the process of ensuring that all black people were finally freed.
I say begin the process because sadly they weren’t all immediately freed on that day. It took a lot more effort and time to ensure all slaves were freed. But, June 19th became the dominant day of celebrating the end of slavery, which is why it became a holiday.

What Size Planner are the Stickers Designed for?
The stickers are designed for a medium-size planner, specifically a Classic Happy Planner.
While there is only 1 size option, you can easily print the stickers in a different size. You can either shrink down (or enlarge) the stickers within a program or you can print them at a smaller or larger scale.
Are the Stickers only for Planners?
Technically, no. They could be used to create a vinyl sticker or wall decals. But most of the sticker designs are geared toward use within a planer.
But since the Silhouette files include individual stickers, you could delete the planner ones and only keep the ones you’d like. Some would be really great stickers on water bottles, binders, notebooks, or any other place you’d like to put it. Or, you could use the individual stickers on a larger scale even as a wall decal or poster for a Juneteenth celebration.
If you are printing them for another application, make sure to use high-quality vinyl, adhesive vinyl, or whatever material you need to make the product you’d like.
Are these Stickers Only for Juneteenth?
While the stickers for Juneteenth, many of the stickers can be used at other times of the year including during Black History Month.
Can I use a craft machine to cut the files?
Yes! I have included Silhouette Studio files. In addition, I included half-sheet size PNG files that can be used with Design Space.
Do I have to have a Cutting Machine to Use the Stickers?
What is the best printable sticker paper?
It depends on what type you would like to use. There are lots of great options for sticker paper now, depending on how much you want to spend. I don’t have experience with all of them but these are my two favorites.
If you are using white sticker paper, this is one of my favorite matte sticker papers – If you are using clear sticker paper, these transparent sticker sheets have worked well for me.
When using a craft cutting machine, make sure to use the correct setting depending on your type of sticker paper. You may have to do a bit of trial and error to get it right for your brand of sticker paper.
