I will inform the supplier to produce the sample sticker if you don’t have any requirements.

Is there the usage of inform sb to do sth in English?

    Hi. Not really. It's not the right verb. It's a bit strange/odd. Use "ask/tell someone to do something" instead. "Inform" generally means to give someone information, which doesn't quite make sense here.

No we can't.

There are several ways to use inform, but we don't use inform sb to do sth.[1]

  • inform sb about sth - The leaflet informs customers about healthy eating (From Oxford Learner's Dictionaries)[2]
  • inform sb of sth - They would inform him of any progress they had made. (From Collins Dictionary)[3]
  • inform sb that - He informed me that Judy won't come to the party tonight. (Example by myself)
  • keep sb informed - I want to know what you decide, so keep me informed. (From Longman Dictionary)[4]
