How To Sticker Bomb And What It Is
Chances are you’ve seen walls, doors, laptops and maybe even cars that are smothered in hundreds of stickers. Artist sticker bomb areas the same way they graffiti them.
There is no doubt that sticker bombing is an art form. It’s been a popular part of culture for a long time, being an affordable and graphic way to show creativity or make a larger point.
They often have different motivations behind them or are just a way to make an area stand out. It’s a free gallery of logos or sayings.
Intentional shapes can be created where an outline or image can be seen from a distance. Then, when you get closer all you see is the individual stickers.
When done poorly, it can be ugly. Sometimes after years, the weather will leave its mark on an outdoor one. Some companies may even sell full sheets that come pre-made, which really takes the art of it.
You can see them almost anywhere.
You usually don’t have to look far for a wall that has been sticker bombed. Local shops and bars have them frequently. Here is an example in our hometown of Jacksonville, Florida.
Walls like these have an open invitation to anyone to partake in the sticker bomb design and add their own stickers. Local businesses that have them use them for a sense of community.
Companies can use a sticker bomb to get social shares.
Adding a hashtag sticker to use or one asking for a share when someone interacts with the group will help digital engagement. It could even go viral.
You will see some with QR codes for Snapchat or Instagram logos in these.
Offering a discount for those who follow on social media will drive your engagement for this. If you say this on each sticker with your usernames, it will drive consumers to follow or add you.
How To Do It Yourself
First, prep your surface area. You need it to be clean, dust and streak-free. You don’t want the stickers looking bad and peeling off. Use soap and a scrubbing pad or brush to get it ready.
Next, start collecting a giant amount of stickers. If you are a business owner trying to do this in your space, you can get multiple ones made of yours and combine them with others.
Don’t be afraid to overlap them. The ones that are placed at the beginning are naturally going to be the least visible. Place them using all angles.
It there are gaps in it, don’t overlap it too often or it will stand out.
There are a lot of surfaces to choose from. Your desk, wall, laptop, and even phone can look great with this. Plus, vinyl stickers remove with such ease and no marks. So you don’t need to worry about ever wanting to change it, you can easily.
Reviving the lost art of sticker bombing
Graffiti—and its role in cities—has spawned countless movies, museum exhibits, books. But what about its scrappier cousin, sticker art? In the 1980s and ’90s, “sticker bombing,” also known as “slapping,” became enormously popular as well, with artists producing their own stickers and leaving them as markers in cities all over the world. While plenty of city governments criminalized sticker bombing, it was easy and fast enough to slap a sticker on a wall or bike rack that they proliferated anyway, creating a layer cake of colorful paper as they accumulated over the years.
[Photo: Michael Kohls/courtesy Raum für Illustration]Though sticker art might not be as ubiquitous as it was a decade ago, in Hamburg, where the new illustration-focused gallery Raum für Illustration is located, sticker culture still abounds.
“They are everywhere; house entrances, street masts, trash cans are full of them,” gallery cofounder Beate Pietrek said in an email. “Small messages and fun visuals talking to you as you are walking through the streets. It feels like an open gallery where everybody is invited to be a part of it. The different kinds of groups like street-art artists, football clubs, and event announcements are in a subcultural dialogue with each other.”
Pietrek and her cofounder, Philipp Schultz, are the force behind It’s Sticky, an exhibit of stickers designed by 30 different artists and illustrators from across 13 countries. For the opening of the show—the gallery’s first—Pietrek and Schultz painted the space’s walls black and invited attendees to slap the designs on any and all surfaces.[Photo: Michael Kohls/courtesy Raum für Illustration]
All in all, they printed 31,000 stickers. Some of the designs riff on existing graphic tropes, like the yellow smiley face that has been remixed into countercultural iconoclasm since it was designed in the 1960s, but others are expressive and unexpected. There’s a sticker from German comic artist Anna Haifisch featuring two goofy, waifish hound dogs fighting over a blanket. Other artists include New York-based editorial illustrator Ariel Davis, whose sticker is full of vaporwave abstraction, and Tokyo illustrator Wakana Yamazaki, who drew a shocked samurai being swallowed by a fish.[Image: courtesy Raum für Illustration]
Half of the printed stickers were given out by the gallery and the other 15,500 were sent to the artists themselves for distribution. “We loved the idea that our exhibition is not only taking place in our space but can also be carried out in the streets spread by the visitors or the artists themselves,” the curators write. It’s also a savvy way of publicizing the young gallery, since each sticker sports Raum für Illustration as part of its design, and thousands of those stickers are about to proliferate in Hamburg and elsewhere.
So, is the show an ode to a dying form of street art, killed off by the web? Not exactly. Pietrek and Schultz say their show—which also exists online—underlines how this analog form of visual communication can be bolstered by social media, rather than replaced by it.
“We don’t think to inspire a resurgence. But we feel like there is something magic about stickers,” Pietrek says. “To stick a sticker on the wall is an exciting experience and maybe a good variety to digital activities. You share something with the world, but in a physical way. It can be political, it can be personal, it can be just for fun. It’s all about communication.”
We Opened the Biggest Sticker Store In the World
Share this post:
We are excited to announce the opening of StickerYou’s first offline store! We are proud to now offer a physical retail experience, where you can walk through the door and we will say hello. Cyberspace has been StickerYou’s home since our creation in 2008, but 11 years later, we felt it was time that blossomed into a tangible brick and mortar store. We really stuck ourselves out there! Literally, we stuck a sticker decal that is 3 stories tall outside our building! The store is located downtown Toronto at 677 Queen Street West. This is an exciting expansion for us and hopefully, after reading this blog post you will understand why.
What’s the store like?
For all you StickerYou fans who are not able to travel to the store yet, we this blog-post can paint you a picture of what the store is like. The store is located in the Queen Street West neighborhood of Toronto, which Vogue Magazine has voted one of the worlds coolest neighborhoods. I think we can all agree that
Approaching the store on Queen Street, you are struck by the sticker-bombed lightning bolt out front. It is three stories high and directing your focus towards the sticker store of your childhood dreams. Walking through the door you might think, am I in a comic book? Colorful stickers are surrounding you, including on the ceiling. The walls are lined with drawings reminiscent of being doodled into a notebook. The design of the store navigates the space between childhood fascination and modern sticker art, appealing to sticker enthusiasts of all ages.
The first thing you’d notice inside the store is the huge sticker bombed wall adorned with contrasting blank white water bottles and skateboards that are begging to be covered in stickers. The walls further back in the room are covered in a grid of ready to buy sticker designs organized by category. There are pop art stickers, travel, media, tech, and trendy stickers. On the opposite wall, there are stickers designed by StickerYou’s collaborating artists, some pre-made patches and temporary tattoos for purchase. No matter your interests or style, there is definitely one if not many different stickers at the store that you will love.
In the middle of the room there is an island with various sticker-bombed objects like a guitar and a record player. At the back of the store, there’s a room that displays examples of the products that are available to be customized on the StickerYou website.
The store is dripping with inspiration. Visitors have told us that they walk in curious about the store and walk out inspired. After buying stickers, many visitors want to learn how to design and order their own custom products. Good thing we’ve made it easy to make that inspiration into a reality! The store is equipped with a customer experience center where visitors can check out the hundreds of custom design options and create their own design on our amazing online sticker maker.
Clearly, this is not your typical retail store. Additionally within the store, there is a permanent sticker museum curated by the cool artists and the inventors of Peel Magazine, Holy and Dave Combs. The museum showcases the history and impact of stickers. It will feature original sticker art by Shepard Fairey of Obey, the legendary Taki 183, and many more. There will always be new stuff to see with rotating exhibitions and events.
Voilá! We are excited to present to you the world’s largest sticker store! This new offline StickerYou store is the best destination to find amazing die-cut stickers, learn about the history of sticker art and get inspiration to make your own custom products. Come visit us in Toronto and see for yourself!
Why change from clicks to bricks?
Why would we open a retail store when everything else seems to be going digital? There are a few reasons we wanted to open an offline retail store. Firstly, because our products are best received in tangible experiences that only a physical store can offer. Secondly, we are excited by the opportunity to meet our customers and build a stronger StickerYou community!
Our products, stickers, patches, decals, and so on, are the kinds of products that are best appreciated in an in-person sensory experience. A retail store allows customers to interact with our products in a way that cannot be replicated online. We recognize the importance of giving customers the opportunity to actually touch and feel our products so they can judge for themselves the quality of our materials and what the adhesives are like. Visiting the store also allows customers to see the products we offer being used in different ways. This inspires customers to discover new ideas for ways that they can use the products we offer in their business or personal life.
Within a physical retail space, we can offer customers a unique experience of connecting with our brand and sharing it with others. By creating an inviting and interesting store environment, we can make visiting the store as exciting of an experience as receiving new custom products. Our sticker-bombed wall is perfect for customers to snap selfies to share with friends. Check out some of the tagged photos that have been posted on instagram at @stickeryoustore. Lastly, we are excited to build a stronger StickerYou community with the store. We now have the opportunity to host events and exhibitions at the store and meet more of our customers face to face. This is an exciting new chapter for us at StickerYou, which we are delighted to share with you! We hope to see you at the store soon!

Meet the “Sticker Bombers” – Vocativ
Graffiti stickers, or “slaps,” take on all forms—and often with U.S. Postal Service labels. In some cases, it’s highly detailed stencils featuring famous personalities.
Commander in Streets
President Obama’s likeness stenciled on a USPS Priority sticker and slapped on an outdoor wall in Austin, Texas.
Or drawings of hotties.
Topless beauty is deputized on her rear and ready to be mailed.
Or a push for political change.
Creative “Crook” Hook
Sticker stencil of President Richard Nixon shaking hands with Egyptian Pharaoh.
Also otherworldly characters.
Boy and Buddha
Hyper-realized sticker with a boy and Buddha resting on his shoulder.
Some cities, like New York and Portland, Oregon, have become sticker meccas. “We have stickers all over the place here,” says Sgt. Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Department, where “slap-tagging” remains a misdemeanor offense. “Generally, they’re slapping the stickers on windows or street signs.”
In the last few years, sticker bombing has taken on some new dimensions. Instagram has become a popular place to showcase new slaps. The New York artist Faust has 20,000 Instagram followers that check in daily for his latest pieces featuring stylized calligraphy.
Faust Spotted in Paris
A name tag sticker slapped on a Paris street sign bears the “Faust” calligraphy hallmark.
Sticker art is also going upscale, migrating from the streets into the galleries. Places including The Fridge in Washington, D.C., and the Anonymous Gallery in New York have featured sticker art shows in the last year.
But at some shows, there’s sticker drama. A sticker crew in Houston dropped out of a show titled Peel This at the 713 Inc. art gallery in May after discovering that a rival’s work was going to be featured in the same show. “We’ve done a lot of graffiti shows, and there’s always an issue. Rarely does it go over well because there’s always one artist who isn’t cool with another artist,” says the gallery’s owner, Rusty Azios.
Art Show in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Stacks of stickers amassed when Brass Knuckle Crew put out a request during an art show at Ivy House Studio in Brooklyn, N.Y.
A Houston artist who goes by the name Thieve stopped making screen-printed T-shirts earlier this year and switched over to stickers full-time. Every few days, he walks the city’s busy Westheimer Road slapping stickers adorned with his signature primitive, elongated cat skull onto street signals and signs. “It’s the perfect spot because there’s lots of traffic and you’re guaranteed to be seen,” he says.
Does he worry about the cops? “If they give me trouble, I’ll say it’s a sociology experiment and that it’s just a sticker that can be peeled off. If I have a spray can, I can’t talk my way out of it.”
Public Signage Slaptagged
A street sign in Portland, Oregon, is defaced with a Christopher Walken sticker.
In sticker art, permanence is key—the longer-lasting the sticker, the better the art. Thieve recently bought a $2,000 thermal transfer printer that uses a heating process that makes the ink more indelible, and plunked down $700 for a pack of 4,000 high-grade polyester stickers that, he says, retain their adhesiveness for “three to five years outside,” through rain, wind and snow.
A streetlight gets bombarded by stickers.
Mind-bending collage sticker artist HesherPark from Portland, Oregon, was one of the big names gifting stickers to an art show in Houston, Texas.
Thieve has added a twist to his repertoire to make his stickers even more durable: magnets. By hand, he cuts squares on a white roll and silk-screens his flattened characters to the magnet in the same way a T-shirt is printed.
Priority Mail Robots Will Kill Stickers
When he’s not bombing trucks, NYC graffiti artist Robots Will Kill makes his mark on USPS Priority Mail labels.
Thieve’s grand plan is to toss them on big highway signs. “In the adhesive game, you’re limited to what you can reach. But with magnets you can just toss them up and they stick. They never get removed.”
Making Magnet Graffiti
Thieve’s process to dye cut his characters and fuse them to magnetic sheets.
Magnets, for sure, can make sticker art last longer, but technology has also helped. A company based in Hong Kong called Egg Shell mimics the “Hello My Name Is” tags, but its version is almost indestructible. The product is aimed at people using packing boxes, but taggers are buying, too.
The mystery material is based on industrial strength stickers that a rep named Stan tells us through email “has been out in the market for ages.”
“It was originally for security purposes,” he says, referring to the kinds of labels dotting airports, hospitals and other sensitive locations where labels are meant to be forever.
Egg Shell Sticker Glass TestUploaded By: Egg Shell Stickers
Egg Shell says it is shipping dozens of its sleek packs to graffiti artists in France, U.K., Canada, Australia and Asia. Try to scratch them off with a fingernail or even an X-Acto knife and Stan says the material beads but barely budges.
“I’ve seen people putting hours of work to get rid of them.”

BTS: NBA x Bleacher Report NBA 75 Artist Series
NEW YORK — An empty boutique retail space in the heart of SoHo was transformed almost overnight into an NBA mecca featuring paintings and jewelry to quilts and embroideries — all to commemorate the NBA’s 75th anniversary.
In celebration of the NBA’s 75 years, Bleacher Report commissioned a lineup of talented, diverse artists from a range of disciplines to create original works of art inspired by the league. Each of the five artists created original works along with a set of artist editions (each limited to 75) and apparel inspired by their artworks.
NBA x B/R 75 Art Collection
Visual artist Sue Tsai curated the collection. Her work is a crossover of art, fashion and pop culture known to bring a bold yet feminine aesthetic in the world of basketball. She creates multimedia collectible art through her pop-surrealistic style.
“I really wanted to find a diverse group of artists that would showcase not only different mediums but different perspectives on basketball,” Tsai said. “It was important to bring on artists that had their own personal relationships with NBA history so that it would be authentically reflected in the art.”
The other artists include:
- Frank Miller: one of the most influential and awarded creators in the entertainment field today. Miller is known for his intense, hard-boiled storytelling and gritty noir aesthetic across comics, novels and films, including Daredevil, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City and 300.
- Hank Willis Thomas: a widely exhibited conceptual artist working primarily with themes related to perspective, identity, commodity, media, and popular culture. He is known for creating overlaps of sports, history, and contemporary art through his tapestries made of athletic jerseys.
- Greg Yuna: a prominent luxury jeweler and New York City fixture, who is based in Manhattan’s Diamond District and counts top celebrities in sports, music and film among his clientele. Yuna’s creativity and unique aesthetic drives the design direction of the Greg Yuna brand’s contemporary collections of precious jewelry, apparel, accessories and artwork.
- Bandulu: a label founded by artist Pat Peltier, known for transforming vintage clothing into unique, one of a kind garments through custom embroidery, including hand-sewn paint splatters – a trademark of his style.
Each artist has a unique connection to basketball that helped influence their work for this collection.
“Basketball has always been a gateway for artistic expression and mental fitness for me, from an early age,” Peltier said. “From being inspired by the culture of the sport my whole life to going on to play collegiate basketball at Mass Art in Boston, I have continuously drawn reference points and parallels to how art and basketball intertwine through Bandulu.”
Giclee prints, numbered and hand signed, edition of 75 for Lakers by Frank Miller
“I have been a basketball fan since I was a teenager,” Miller said. “Watching the Lakers playing the Celtics was like watching super heroes in action. Those guys are too good to be true. But they are true.”
For the original works, Tsai created four paintings celebrating the Bulls, Knicks, Lakers and Nets. Each commemorated the city’s history such as her favorite painting of the Knicks logo, surrounded by colorful Madison Square Garden-inspired growth in a city of concrete.
“Inspired by the ‘concrete jungle,’ I turned the iconic Knicks’ secondary basketball logo into my signature flower bomb. The Rafflesia jungle flower bomb represents the power and explosiveness of the game while paying a small homage to the 88-89 Knicks
Knicks painting by Sue Tsai
“Bomb Squad,” Tsai said. “At the root is a stem mimicking a NY street sign and leaves sprouting the 7th ave and 33rd street intersection of Madison Square Garden. A concrete block NY shows the strength of the city while wall stickers pay homage to the 75 years of the NBA. A young fan waters the Knicks flower helping it to blossom and reminds us that growth has no off-season.”
Other artists’ works:
Each artists’ editions:
- Miller: Giclee prints, numbered and hand signed, edition of 75 for each the Celtics, Lakers, Raptors.
- Willis Thomas: 50″ x 70″ printed blanket of quilt, edition of 75.
- Tsai: Giclee prints, numbered and hand signed, edition of 75 for each the Bulls, Knicks, Lakers.
- Yuna: Archive pigment print on aluminum, edition of 75 with signed Certificate of Authenticity for the Lakers.
- Bandulu: Embroidered patch, edition of 75.
Tsai said what she liked most about working with the other artists was how incredibly different everyone’s individual perspective of the NBA and how that was reflected in what they created.
A large-scale quilted NBA logo by Hank Willis Thomas
“Hank Willis Thomas is such an important conceptual artist to the culture and his 1 of 1 quilt goes far beyond just putting together player jerseys to make the NBA logo. Frank Miller who is an iconic comic artist sees the players as superheroes and was able to render the team logos in this way. To visualize NBA teams and their history through the eyes of all these different artists from diverse backgrounds really shows us how the league has transcended beyond just the game,” Tsai said.
In addition, all of the artists works are available as apparel, which is a capsule collection of casual wear, including long and short sleeve t-shirts, hooded and crewneck sweatshirts, embroidered bomber jackets and a pair of sweatpants.

Sticker Bombing – decorate your car with a bombing sticker and be unique
Sticker Bombing is a new fashion trend that burst into our daily life with noise and din from the land of the rising sun … This is a real JDM!
Someone says that the direction of sticker bombing was brought into the world by drifters, someone says that Japanese tuners, but let’s take it in order …
The new is the well-forgotten old. And this expression can certainly be applied to sticker bombing.According to the classics of the genre, I immediately went to Wikipedia and found the following there:
Bombing (in English bombing, derived from bomb – a bomb) is a type of activity of street artists, which consists in drawing a special type of graffiti – bombs. Graffiti artists who are mainly bombing are called bombers or writers (graffiti artist). Most people consider this kind of drawing to be an extreme sport.
The purpose of the bombing was not the quality of the drawings, but their quantity.A common occurrence was the bombing of other people’s work, which caused outrage on the part of the community of writers (street artists), which in turn sought the bombers.
The situation today, the technique of drawing bombs has practically not changed …
Sticker (from the English sticker – sticker, label) – a graphic image or other message printed on self-adhesive paper, designed to be placed on various surfaces: metal, glass, plastic, etc.e. Can be used as an information banner, wall decoration element or interior decoration.
After analyzing this information from the Wiki and shifting it into an automobile manner, I got the following:
Sticker Bombing (sticker bombing) – this is the direction of pasting the car. Usually they use stickers in the style of jdm – jdm stickers . By pasting any part of the car (bumpers, fenders, hoods, and other parts) with a lot of stickers, you will definitely highlight it in the gray mass and close any minor flaws in the body.I can’t say that it is cheaper than painting the part, but it is impossible to repeat the order of the stickers twice, this is a real exclusive with your own hands … In Russia StickerBombing is only gaining momentum, but I am sure that soon it will become a mass phenomenon.
Unfortunately I did not find a good example of sticker bombing on a Honda Civic, but I found some worthy photos on the example of a Nissan Silvia (S15) 2001 release:
Judging by what people write on the net, stickerbombing has broken out of JDM and is closely associated with motorsport.As I wrote earlier, in the JDM style, it is very common to understate a car and install hellish body kits on it, as well as drift, in which it is simply impossible not to scribble with a bumper. Accordingly, low-hanging body kits tend to wear out on the unevenness of the road surface and of course the curbs, therefore the paintwork (paintwork) on these elements quickly wears out. The way out is simple – to glue the body kit with stickers, which, if something happens, is not difficult to re-stick.
I came across a couple of videos about sticker bombing on the Internet.I share them with you:
P.S. Personally, I like Sticker Bombing, and maybe in the near future I will paste over my car. But not everyone, as I like this movement. As the saying goes, all markers are different in taste and color.
Z.Y. At the end of the post, I would like to cheer everyone up and show the public True Russian Sticker Bombing:

Ben Baker got tired of the gray nondescript walls of the office of the advertising agency where he works, so at one point he decided to turn them into something extraordinary.His idea was to cover the boring walls of the office with a series of superhero portraits laid out from stickers, of which he ended up using 8,024 pieces.
Ben posted on Reddit that it took him several weeks to plan and design the future mural. He enlisted the full support of his boss, who donated $ 300 for materials and supported Ben from start to finish.

Then I decided that I wanted to turn the walls of our office into a superhero mural, and for this I did not need brushes and paints, but colored stickers. 3. Superheroes were great ideas. I started practicing studying pixel art and designed a few characters. We are a creative agency and even our office walls have to be creative. 5. Some wonderful people who work with me in the office volunteered over the weekend to help create the mural. ”6. Ben said that in order to finish the mural, he and his team worked from 10 am to 5 pm. “Help was welcomed from people of all shapes and sizes :)” 8. And this is what happened in the end. 9.10. 11.12.
