Let's Review Pipsticks Sticker Subscriptions (with a Giveaway, too)!

My love and enthusiasm for stickers started in the 1980's. I kept a prized sticker collection and still have my sticker books to this day. As a teacher, I used stickers for so many fun projects in my classroom- not just for rewards! I'm a firm believer in the power of positive incentives. Try handing a scratch and sniff sticker to a high school student and see what happens. I think they appeal to the kid in all of us. That's why I was SUPER EXCITED to find this amazing company called Pipsticks, who are helping to revive the sticker craze that I knew and loved so well. And guess what? They even gave me a little surprise for you, so scroll down to enter our Pipsticks giveaway, too!!


About Pipsticks

One of the reasons that I fell in love with Pipsticks is because they have the same philosophy that I do, and that is, Little things can make a big difference. Quoting directly from their site, "We know that little things that are cool and serve a purpose- even if that purpose is unadulterated fun- can rock your world and save your day. We are IN LOVE with stickers and understand their power to make you smile. We don't stand for ugly or lame and work hard to bring you simple and fun. We promise that your Pipsticks experience will be touched by happy and helpful people."

Pipsticks offers a sticker subscription service for kids and for 'pros' (that would be me, of course, and you, too, I'm sure). You can choose a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription, and there are a few different varieties to choose from. For more details about their subscription choices, take a look at their page of descriptions and see which subscription is best for you.

And if you're not ready to commit to a subscription but you still totally love stickers, don't fret. Pipsticks also offers sticker gift sets, grab bags, and washi tape. Just visit their online shop to see what's available.


About Pipsticks Subscriptions

Mo at Pipsticks was kind enough to send me a sample pack of Pipsticks so I could see what they were all about and share my joy with you. And, seriously, it was utter and pure joy opening this pack when it came in the mail.


My sample pack was the Kids Club Classic, which includes 15+ sheets of stickers, 1 postcard, and 4 sheets of craft paper. There was also a Pipsticks newsletter to tell you about all of their latest happenings, and a raffle ticket to enter their monthly giveaway.

The envelope is very unique (made of a funky see-through paper), and is wrapped neatly and safely within clear vellum. I liked that someone packed it by hand, like my very own sticker pen pal!



It's a sturdy, reusable envelope, so you can put the stickers and paper back in there when you're done with them, and you can even write your name on it.

The newsletter was chock full o' info and even reminded you to keep your raffle ticket to see if you win a monthly prize.



You can also flip the newsletter over and find something fun to play with. In this case, there's an alphabet printed on the back.


So let's take a look at the stickers, now, shall we? I am a self-proclaimed Sticker Expert. I have earned this title through years of experience, collecting and trading stickers across decades of time! So I can honestly tell you that these are top quality stickers, and oh so cute! You also won't find cartoony, TV characters here, so don't worry about opening your sticker pack and finding some icky icons that you don't even like.


My favorite were these doggies (I noticed they were made by Carson Dellosa, a brand that I used OFTEN in my classroom when I was teaching).


But there was so much to love in my sticker pack!


The alligators were actually textured- they are kind of puffy and each one has a patterned feel. Can you see that each alligator is totally different?

The little squares of stickers took me right back to my childhood! Look at these adorable kitties!


And what would a sticker pack be without scratch and sniff?? These were fabulous popcorn scented ones. A friend of mine stopped by and the first thing she did was grab for these. 'Ooo, scratch and sniff ones!' she squealed. See, it's the little things...


So another super unique addition to the Pipsticks subscription pack is this postcard. Seems like such a simple thing, right? But how cool! I mean, it's already stamped so you can send this to a friend, relative or just someone who needs a smile. How fun to use your stickers for something positive! Think about it, you and a friend can both get Pipsticks subscriptions and send these postcards to each other!!

What Else Does Pipsticks Offer?

The Pipsticks newsletter also stated that they have fundraising opportunities. What a unique and fun way to raise money for good causes!  Just another example of how stickers can spread joy.


You can also see that Pipsticks offers printable freebies if you sign up for their email newsletter, and they have a referral incentive program if your friends decide to join, too.

Pipsticks is great for any age, in my personal opinion. And it's especially great for people who love to spread a smile, and for those creative souls who appreciate little packages of fun in the mail. Subscription boxes are all the rage these days, and I think Pipsticks stands in a class by itself. I absolutely love it!

  3. My 4 year old is totally into stickers. As a parent, I kind of hate stickers right now (I am sure you know why...I find them stuck on everything!) But stickers are used as the "reward" system at pre-school and they are a simple way to bring a smile to anyone's face!
