To answer a growing niche, e-commerce company and custom sticker maker StickerYou recently opened the world’s largest sticker store on Queen West in Toronto, Canada, last August. To stock the shelves and inspire the community with the potential of sticker art, StickerYou is collaborating with artists worldwide to provide a selection of creative, ready-made stickers, as well as custom options on site.
The model fuses the traditional and experiential to bring about a unique opportunity for consumers to engage with the brand.
A sticker museum and a sticker art exhibition, focusing on exhibiting the creative connotation behind the aesthetically pleasing adhesive patches. It also introduces for customers, the option to customize their own stickers in store.
StickerYou foresees this new venture to be a success and the activation has certainly caught the eye of media — including The Globe and Mail, the Daily Hive, Narcity, and more.
On January 30 StickerYou will open a permanent sticker museum and art exhibition in the store. The ‘Stickers: RePEELED’ exhibition will be done in collaboration with Dave and Holly Combs, editors of PEEL magazine, a publication that galvanized the global sticker art community in the early aughts.
The exhibition will feature sticker art from Shepard Fairey of Obey Giant, Matthew Hoffman of You Are Beautiful, and original sticker art from artists around the world.
