Whether you place it on a sketchbook, laptop, or wall, stickers can be a great form of expression.
As many of you know, I’ve been designing stickers using a great company called Sticker Mule. Sticker Mule allows you to submit your designs and create a variety of things: stickers, labels, magnets, buttons, and more. I’ve had an amazing experience so far, entering contests and giveaways on Dribbble, and creating custom stickers of my many illustrations. Designing stickers helped me engage with my audience more, as I host giveaways on my Instagram page and trade with fellow designers whose work I admire.
For me, adding my stickers to the marketplace wasn’t just about making money, but rather building a community. I love interacting with other designers, friends, and family members as they give me feedback on what my next sticker design should be. My parents have collected all my stickers and placed them in a photo album (how cute!) and are excited to grow their collection.
In March, I designed a pen tool sticker and button and hosted a small get together of designer friends to build a foundation around the mantra “In Pen Tool We Trust.”
In July/August, I helped everyone expressed that they wanted to be the very best with certified badges (#PokemonGo #Team Valor *cough cough*).
Recently, I designed a pink ribbon with the word “Hope” button for a Breast Cancer Awareness Zumba Fundraiser/Event in October. If the event goes well, I hope to create more buttons with meaningful messages.
All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the fantastic work over at Sticker Mule. Not only is the quality great, but the products are affordable, delivery is quick, and their support team has helped me with any concerns I had. I’m so happy that my marketplace has sold so successfully! The amount of support I’ve gotten from customers has been incredible and I thank everyone who has purchased stickers.
