When you look back over your younger years, memories are undoubtedly filled with stickers. Stickers on pencil cases, on bags, and even on walls. What is more, if you stop and look around you, chances are you will see stickers everywhere, and once you notice them, you can't stop seeing them. But what makes the humble sticker so popular? Why do people love stickers so much? What has made them stand the test of time and remain as popular today as they did 10 years ago?

Well, it isn't any great secret, and this article is here to shed some light on what makes the beloved sticker so popular. 

#1 stickers can reflect who you are

Stickers are like temporary windows into the soul. They can tell you so much about a person, their characteristics, their likes, and dislikes. If someone is a football fan, that football sticker is a great indicator. Moreover, if you have a religious, scientific, or political belief that you wish to express, a sticker can be an excellent way to do it. 

Stickers are also incredibly versatile when it comes to showing who you are and can extend beyond showing your beliefs. They can also be used to promote social causes you are passionate about or affiliated with; they can help inspire others to share or at least take an interest in views. And, what is so great about all of this is that should your views, opinions, beliefs, or interests change, no bother, you can simply remove or replace the sticker. 

#2 stickers can help you communicate

We communicate through words and or images, whether verbally or on paper. So sharing stickers that portray thoughts, feelings, and emotions can be an excellent way for people to communicate. A method that might be easier when they can't find the words. Alternatively, a sticker can be used to cheer someone up when they're having a bad day or to remind someone to dig deep and carry on the tough times. 

#3 stickers can spark emotion and sentimentality 

Nostalgic custom stickers can spark memories, which bring emotions flooding back. They could remind you of a location, an event, an achievement, or a time in your life that you treasure. How often do you stop by a souvenir shop to purchase a keepsake trinket? Well a sticker is no different.

#4 stickers are great for business 

Companies and brands often use stickers for promotional, advertorial, or marketing methods. Moreover, it is a method that has stood the test of time through the digital revolution, and there is not much in the way of media that can say that. Stickers are great for business because they are low-cost, easily distributed, and can accurately convey a company message or logo. Think Apple, for example. In addition to brands, custom stickers are used by politicians to show affiliation and to help gain traction when it comes to votes.
