Sticker Swaps! *

If there’s one thing that I loved when I was younger, especially in school and probably one thing that I spent far too much pocket money on, is stickers. Oh stickers. How I used to love decorating my school books, notebooks even my wardrobe with stickers of dogs cats, ice creams, smiley faces, bees and an array of everything in-between. I think stickers are very nostalgic and our first foray into creativity as youngsters. But now, at the age of 24 and part of the blogging community, I can see that stickers are very much still a “thing” for us oldens and most good stationery brands will stock them in a huge range of designs!

So, when Sticker Swaps contacted me and asked if I’d like to review and feature one of their sticker packs on my blog, obviously the answer was yes, yes, yes (otherwise this post is pretty pointless isn’t it?) Sticker Swaps is a monthly, 3 monthly or 6 monthly subscription of stickers sent straight to your letterbox and features 10 or so stickers designed by artists and designers from around the world! I wasn’t too sure what to expect but from their website, I had a sense that they would be quite “out there” with quirky designs.

The website states that their stickers are “high quality” and I can definitely vouch for that because that’s the first thing I noticed after the designs themselves. They’re printed on nice paper (I don’t know what different types of paper there are, hence the very unimaginative use of the word ‘nice’ but you get my gist) and they stick. Which is a bonus but seriously they’re very sticky. This sounds silly but that’s always a thing you need when buying stickers. In my opinion, anyway…

I love the designs, too. My favourites have to be the sushi because I looooove sushi and now really really, really want sushi but just look how adorable they are! This pack has a very “alternative” feel to it and I like that, for a change as this isn’t the sort of style I probably would have picked out for myself. I also love the little brown alien, man, thing. He’s cute!

I really liked these stickers and proceeded to decorate one of my new work notebooks with them and they definitely spruced up the front page! The website is correct, they are definitely high quality and I love the different range of designs you get in the pack because they’re designed by different artists. That’s pretty cool. Check out their website and their subscription options here.

    1. I’d like to do it more, too! But I wouldn’t want them to go to waste. I’d be such a pest, I’d buy LOADS and never use them haha!

    1. Aw thank you!

  11. I remember when I was growing up I used to collect stickers for football books. I would have bought a packet of stickers every Sunday and try to collect all of my favourite footballers. I loved it. It proceeded to turn in to an obsession and then started collecting Pokemon cards and all sorts! Lots of nostalgia right here in this post!

    1. Haha aww! Yeah I had a fair few pokemon cards when I was younger, too!

  12. Great post! I have a little bit of an obsession with stickers because I love to use them in my scrapbooks, I’m so picky about which ones I will use though 😆

    1. Ooh I would love to start scrapbooking but I really don’t know where to start, whether it’ll be too time consuming or expensive and will I actually stick it out? I can imagine I’d be the same though, especially if a certain page had a certain “theme”.

      1. It’s so fun! And a more compact way of documenting and keeping your memories 💖

  13. They are absolutely adorable stickers! I too was obsessed with stickers as a kid and still like them now! The kids in the primary school I work in are obsessed with getting stickers as a reward so I’ll have to get some of these!

    1. Aww yeah I remember in primary school getting a sticker was a HUGE deal! I was so proud of them haha! xx

  14. Great post! I’ve always liked stickers! 😁

    1. Thanks! Me too (:

      1. No bother!

  15. Stickers are still a thing?? Eight year old me is screaming with joy right now.

    1. Right?! I was the same! Dunno what it is but stickers are so satisfying!

    2. You should look at Etsy. My blog os Stationery and Book related. Stickers, washi, planners, they are all huge. So many people out there make stickers.
      One of my favourites is a lady called Jo who has a shop called LittleRainbowMoon on etsy, she does all her own artwork <3
