You’ll Be Glad These 7 Fandom-based Sticker Shops Exist

The fad for anything nostalgic shows no signs of stopping. From Clueless-inspired lookbooks to the launch of mini Playstation Classic to stickers—all these and more remind us of the 90s. So when the first-ever Sticker Con was announced, the art-loving community was in a collective unadulterated excitement, causing a metaphorical quake on the event proper. Who knew adhesive artworks can amass that much of con-goers?

If you're like us who's crazy up-to-date in pop culture, keeping track of brands that celebrate our fandom is no mean feat. Here's a glimpse into the mainstream as told by stickers artists and shops.

Whimsicute

This sticker shop lets you embrace your inner weeaboo, koreaboo, or the version of you who loves anything cute. It has lots of fanart ranging from animes you grew up watching like Hunter X Hunter and Yu Yu Hakusho a.k.a. Ghost Fighter, to iconic characters from Studio Ghibli.

EULS

EULS is the product of your favorite TV shows and vector art. Some of its sticker packs are inspired by Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, and F.R.I.E.N.D.S. And if you don't want no problem with your SO, check out their postcards featuring Chance the Rapper, Drake, and Kanye West among others.

Jenna Guerrero

"I want to buy everything" is what you'll probably say after realizing that @jennaxxi exists. Especially if you're deep in the K-Pop and K-Drama fever, Jenna's sticker packs are hard to resist. Fill your sticker stash with the likes of Fight For My Way and Strong Woman sticker packs (and with no regrets!).

Meelo

If its Instagram feed is any indication, Meelo is all about pretty boys, such as those from animes Haikyuu and Boku no Hero Academia. It's the shop that can relate to your fangirling and fanboying to the latest pop culture fads. So if you think Miles Morales is your Spider-Man, well, you and Meelo both.

Louise Ramos

Fueled by late night movie sounds and microwavable popcorn, wanderer and wonderer Louise Ramos created a portfolio that is appealing to the eyes. Though her stickers cover multiple art styles, one thing's consistent: impression. Let's just say we won't be using her stickers until we acquire the perfect, deserving surface.

Fandom Feels
What more can we say? This shop shouts fandom in every sticker packs. In case you don't know, Fandom Feels organized the first (and overwhelming) Sticker Con MNL. Its second edition is also confirmed to happen on March 16, 2019, so mark your calendars!

If you have a hard time fighting your tendency to hoard anything that may mirror your personality, perhaps it's time to embrace it. Let your geek flag fly and get a sticker pack.
