Making a Hexagon Sticker

Making hexagon stickers have become popular for R-packages with the range of packages associated with RStudio, such as ggplot2, knitr, devtools and so on, having its own hex stickers.

This trend even spanned a R-package hexSticker that can be found here.

Powerpoint template for hex stickers

For the sticker that I made for my R-package shinycustomloader, I found it easier, partly due to its long name, to use powerpoint to manipulate the image and create a semi-circular text. It took longer than what I had hoped to get the hexagon shape right. You may like to save your own time by downloading my powerpoint template here as a base to make your own.

The dimensions were set, as it is in hexSticker, so that you can print it according to http://hexb.in/sticker.html.
