And it is as simple as that. When the sticker disappears, it means that you have successfully deleted it from your snap. Also, you can do the same thing to the other ones as well.

Important Note: You cannot remove a sticker permanently but only remove it from the current snap.

Can I permanently delete a customized sticker?

Sure you can. If you are no longer happy with the unique sticker that you created on Snapchat, you can erase it and you can not only delete it from your snap but also from your gallery as well.

Can I delete my own Snapchat stickers?

  1. Open the Snapchat app on your phone.
  2. Then, make a snap to access the sticker menu.
  3. Next, tap on the sticker icon, located on the right side which is right below the pencil icon.

Why do users delete Snapchat stickers?

Snapchat users usually want to delete Snapchat stickers because:

  • They only wanted to preview the sticker and see how it would actually look like.
  • They want to see if there is already a better sticker out there that can be a replacement.
  • They think that the sticker takes a lot of space in the photo or on the video and there is not enough space for a sticker after applying other components.
  • They think that the sticker does not correspond to the snap.
