15 Homegrown Sticker Brands That Totally Slay
These local adhesive artworks will leave you shookt!
(SPOT.ph) In the last few years, there’s been a resurgence of ‘90s pop culture and trends, from baby-doll dresses to Pokémon and more recently, the likes of Skeet Ulrich appearing on Riverdale. (And don’t get us started on former teen dreams Tom Everett Scott and Alicia Silverstone playing parents in the latest Wimpy Kid movie.) Now, the ‘90s childhood hobby of sticker collecting is back with a vengeance as more and more homegrown brands are selling their works in adhesive form.
These days, stickers aren’t just limited to being children’s party favors featuring toon characters. They now have a wider range of styles, textures, and designs that’ll guarantee a perfect fit for any personality. You can breathe new life into bland normcore items by slapping on a witty sticker or two.
Showcase some stickers so you can shout out who you are at the top of your lungs without uttering a single word. Here are some great examples.
Feel the summer vibes 24/7 with neon highlighter hues featuring kooky graphics like a monkey rocking a Pharrell-style hat, a goofy-looking uniwhale, and a pineapple with beach waves crashing inside it. These stickers would look at home printed across a surfboard—you can almost imagine a sea-salt scent wafting off them.
Squee over these gorgeously girly anthropomorphic avatars that show off Pinoy pride by giving us halo-halo, buko, mangoes, and the like. There’s also a sticker set starring some Insta-worthy mermaids.
Rep your Koreaboo fandom with stickers of your fave K-drama heroines and oppas in marvelous millennial colors. There are also original designs that would definitely level up your journal game.
For the unapologetically geeky, you can say it loud and proud with FF’s wide array of stick-on shout-outs. They cover all corners of geekdom including (but not limited to) cartoons, TV shows, movies, video games, and even musicals (their Hamilton sets are the bomb). Sporting an FF sticker is a great way to spot a kindred spirit. #NewfoundFandomFriend
This artist’s stickers are, in a word, adorkable. The classically cute characters, in shades of muted pastel, have a sort of nervous energy around them (see: Sailor Moon’s Usagi Tsukino panicking). You can’t purchase these stickers online yet, but you can follow megumoo’s IG to keep tabs on future pop-up bazaar appearances.
