I loved stickers when I was younger. I remember sticking a bunch on my bedroom furniture (which naturally irritated my mother) but I also used to get really precious about them. I’d get a bit sad at the thought of sticking them on a notebook or my wardrobe door and then not being able to stick them anywhere else. It got to the point that I wasn’t actually sticking them anyway for fear of running out or wasting them.
I suppose that’s what makes Sticker Swaps so fun. For $9.99 a month, you get a whole bunch of stickers – some random, some specifically chosen – so you’ll never have to worry about running out. You can cover your wardrobe door to your heart’s content. James from Sticker Swaps contacted me to ask if I wanted to try out their November selection, which piqued my interest – I haven’t seen a sticker subscription box before so was keen to try it out.
Enough of the chat and on to the photos.
I was sent a really great selection of high quality stickers. The November ‘box’ (I’m a bit late with this review) features stickers from Blackwing pencils, tattoo artist Stabby Gabby, and Montreal-based artist Mictoon amongst others.
My favourites were these two:
This adorable hamster was designed by Sarah Johnson from Cardiff. It’s so cute! I also LOVE this retro “Live to Explore the Day” sticker by Jay at Live Design Co which has a real Firewatch vibe to it.
So now I need to just get over my sticker-placement related anxiety and stick them somewhere!
Thank you to Sticker Swap who sent me the stickers to review. All opinions are my own.
