Stickers- the possessor of the magical power to turn mundane objects into something quirky and interesting, staples of every kid's backpack, fridge door, and the 'oops, I messed up this painting, but I can still make it cool' go-to. Today, we're peeling back the layers (see what we did there?) on National Sticker Day. So, stick around as we unroll this tale (we promise, that's the last of the sticker puns).
It's national sticker day on the 13th January.
National Sticker Day takes the stage every year on January 13th, commemorating the sticker-gineering feats and sticky situations from our past. Can you believe it only stepped into the spotlight recently? Our data points towards a significant online interest surge in 2021 with a whopping 2754 mentions- that's a lot of sticker love.
Stickers have a colorful history that dates back to the ancient Egyptians (they totally started it) who used 'stickers' made from paper and a sticky gum substance to display prices on their goods. But we can't pay homage to the ancients without mentioning Sir Rowland Hill who invented a simple yet groundbreaking 'sticker': the postage stamp in 1839. Talk about sticking to innovation!
How do we celebrate National Sticker Day? By letting our creativity run wild with a sheet of stickers. Yes, your laptop needs some sticker personality. Create a memory book of your past travels using stickers. Or how about spending a lazy afternoon sticking and swapping stickers with your kids? Stickers aren't just for patching up art projects gone wrong anymore. They're the glue that keeps our life full of color and fun.
