I was excited to review Pipsticks as I have always been a little sticker-obsessed. I can recall sitting on the floor (probably 25 years ago) with my childhood best friend trading and bartering with one another for the best new stickers. I have fond memories thanks to stickers and opening the Pipsticks holographic envelope brought that familiar excitement back. Also, being trained in art, I appreciate well-created things…like these amazing stickers.
The Pipticks subscription was delivered in a mesmerizing holographic envelope with “Today just got happier!” written in big letters on one side, and my mailing address on the other. Also, their hashtag #PIPSTICKS was written underneath, most likely placed as a reminder to tag any photos you take or to connect with other Pipstickers subscribers.
Inside I found a “Welcome to the Club!” newbie member checklist of things to know and do to be sure you’re making the most of your subscription, signed by Mo Vazquez, the Pipsticks Founder. The list encourages you to join the virtual sticker squad, to use your 5% subscriber discount to shop, to tag your pics (@lovepipsticks, #lovepipsticks), to send them fan mail and to spread the word if you love Pipsticks. Also, Mo leaves her Pipsticks email and asks subscribers, “p.s. Email me day or night with any and all feedback, ideas, questions, recipes, book recommendations, etc, etc!” I love the personal touch.
Next, I found an issue of Pippy (a zine for sticker lovers).
First we see some candid shots from the Pipsticks studio and a letter from the founder, Mo. Here’s an excerpt:
“I am excited about the stickers in this pack because we use a color palette that we really haven’t done before: pastels! It seemed in line with the changing light of the season (loving that is later in California) and perfectly captures the magical elements of this month’s storybook theme. My friend Margaret, from Once More With Love designed some exclusive stickers for us this month! She’s the sticker master and has a cult following – her munchkin illustrations are the cutest. Go read more about Marg and the collab on the blog! We also incorporated lots of your sticker requests into this month’s collection: crystals, gnomes, flowers, keys, and an albino alligator. Being able to make your sticker dreams come true is the best thing ever”.
Behind the scenes at the: PIPS DESIGN STUDIO & PIPSPOLL
“This month, we tried a new color palette, and played with the magical theme of classic storybooks & fairy tales…”
This page outlines how their colors and ideas, illustrations, and designs come to life. I am in awe, Pipsticks is far more than just stationery!
“Every month, we poll our sticker loving community and here are some fun results… (write in your answers by the questions with a star next to them)”
This is a fun way for Pipsticks to engage their community and this also gives subscribers a chance to win a studio sticker stash after taking a quiz based on the last month’s results.
Creative Challenge & May VIP Ticket Prizes
This month’s creative challenge idea was to make your own mini book with just a few basic supplies! A supply list and step by step instructions are included, as well as a few ideas for the mini-book use. Also, each month they send out one pink ticket and two silver tickets in randomly-chosen Pro Sticker Packs! If subscribers receive any of those tickets, they win the listed prizes. As well, we see a sneak peek for June’s subscription: June stickers are inspired by the earth, nature, and wildlife. I am so excited about next month’s subscription as I am a Taurus and I love nature.
“She’s this month Pipsticker collaborator! Follow her on Instagram @oncemorewithlove, and read more about the collab on our blog!”
It’s cool to learn more about their collaboration and the inspiration and face behind it.
Now on to the most fun part – stickers!
Munchkins Make-Believe with Once More With Love
These stickers were designed in collaboration with @OnceMoreWithLove and they definitely fit the magical and dreamy fairytale theme. I am in love with the munchkin knight, the toadstool-esque mushroom, and the genie lamp stickers as they all spark excitement and bring back memories of my childhood. The nostalgia is real.
Boba Tea Party
Who doesn’t love a tasty bubble tea? I love these colorful stickers representing various bubble tea flavours. The funny thing is, my partner always gets extra tapioca bubbles and I get none. I cannot wait to put these stickers on my agenda on days where I might have a bubble tea date scheduled. Also, how cute are the ones with little faces?
Rose To The Occasion
Typically I do not reach for roses when I purchase flowers for special occasions but I do love to draw and decorate with them. I love that this sheet has a strip of rose stickers that I could wrap around something or create a border with, and single rose stickers in various colors, angles, and sizes to add accents with.
The photo does not do these holographic with gold foil accent beauties justice. Do you remember plastering your bedroom walls with photos as a teen and then adding stickers to them? I sure do and I think I would love to add some of these crowns to current photos for fun!
Getting to Gnome You
I have always loved gnomes and now have some of my very own. How sweet are these Lil’ guys and gals? I also love the diversity represented within these gnomes and magical mushrooms. Something about this color palette comforts me and I cannot wait to put gnomes all over, both at school and home.
These butterflies are so enchanting and dreamy. I adore their wispy wings, beautiful colors, and gold accents. Just gorgeous.
I Will Be a Unicorn
Unusual animals with unicorn horns, anyone? Pipsticks said they included some of the most requested species. I personally love the albino alligator, the sweet koala, and the turquoise seal.
This month’s paper goodie is book labels! You can decorate your favourite books with these adorable labels.
NOTE: With both the Pro Petite or Classic Subscriptions, you would get all of the above items! Keep scrolling to see the additional stickers included in the Classic Subscription.
This young swan is so magical and it would make a beautiful addition to a homemade card for a baby shower or birthday. The flowers and leaves are also unique, diverse, and beautiful.
This is another incredible color palette designed by Pipsticks. These colors alone remind me of growing up in the ’90s and I love that there is a nice variety of strips and single stickers.
Cloche To Beauty
I love these Beauty and the Beast inspired stickers – inspired by the enchanted rose I’m sure.
This is a pretty amazing sticker with a nice reminder for us all, especially in times like this. I will most likely place it on my phone case, laptop, or water bottle for that gentle reminder.
Cuckoo For Clocks
I have always wanted a cuckoo clock but don’t think I could handle the noise. However, the noise brings back many childhood memories of watching cartoons on Saturday morning. I love the neon mixed with neutral colors. How sweet is the little fox and deer?
I love sending snail mail and how cute would these storytime stamps be to decorate the envelopes with? I adore them all but I especially love the red slipper and frog prince.
Reinvented Riding Hood
We all know the story of Little Red Riding Hood and Pipsticks put their creative and neon twist on it. Can you tell what the little test-tubes are supposed to represent from the original fairytale?
Key To The Treasure
These keys and crystals are so fun – what kid or grown adult doesn’t love to collect crystals and keys?
This Magical, Storybook and Fairytale Themed May Pipsticks Subscription contained fifteen sheets of unique and high-quality stickers as well as a zine and book labels. If you were to price out each sheet individually on the Pipsticks website you would be paying far more than the low monthly subscription fee. I am in awe of the high-quality, well-designed, and colorful stickers I received and cannot wait to scrapbook, send more snail-mail, and place these stickers on my students’ work. This is the perfect subscription for any-aged sticker lover in your life!
