Decorate Everything with Free Stickers!
It is National Sticker day today! I found some cool facts about stickers for you.
- Stickers have their history in revenue or tax stamps which were used as early as the mid 1700s to collect tax or other fees on certain items, to which they were adhered, and later on in postage stamps.
- In the United Kingdom in 1840, the first adhesive postage stamps in the world were used, which used a dry sticker formula that was moistened to stick the stamp to the item to be mailed.
- Early stickers were paper stuck with gum glue, and were also used to make objects, such as crates, more attractive in the late 1800s.
- The first modern stickers, known as self-adhesive labels, with a peel off backing, were made in 1935 by R Stanton Avery from Oklahoma, United States of America, who founded one of the biggest self-adhesive label companies, the Avery company which changed its name to the Avery Dennison Corporation in 1990.
- National Sticker Day is January 13 in honor of R. Stanton Avery, who was born on that day in 1907. Avery was the original creator of the adhesive label with a removable backing.
The holiday was created by StickerGiant. I found this funny video of them trying to make the world’s largest sticker ball.
