StickerYou is excited to announce the launch of the History of Stickers Museum and Stickers: RePEELed sticker art exhibition at the world's largest sticker store in Toronto, Canada.
Part of an innovative, 3-dimensional brand strategy, the History of Stickers Museum showcases the history, development and influence of the adhesive sticker, from revolutionizing the UK postal system in the 1800s to inspiring countless pieces of street art from around the world today.
Moving through history from the 1700s, the museum features artifacts including a UK penny black stamp from 1840, an original decal vase from the 1800s, fruit crate labels from the 1910s, Wacky Packs stickers from 1974, a vintage Velvet Underground album with an Andy Warhol-designed banana sticker on the front and more.
Curated by Dave and Holly Combs, editors of the seminal sticker zine Peel Magazine, Stickers: RePEELed takes a look at the unifying art of stickers, bringing together hundreds of pieces of original sticker art from around the world. The exhibition includes works from artists including Shepard Fairey, who celebrated the 30th anniversary of his iconic Obey Giant sticker-turned-brand last year, Rodger Beck, Robots Will Kill, Matthew Hoffman and more.
StickerYou: The Store is the world's largest sticker store, and features a unique, 3-storey high stickerbombed design on the storefront, installed in collaboration with applied sciences giant 3M, a stickerbombed interior, a custom experience center where customers can touch and feel stickers and be inspired.
"The History of Stickers Museum and Stickers: RePEELed showcase StickerYou's deep knowledge of stickers and the impact they can have on business and personal expression," says StickerYou founder and CEO Andrew Witkin. "At StickerYou, we make what matters stick."
