On what day is National Sticker Day celebrated? January 12

What is National Sticker Day? This day is all about the fun, colorful stickers we love. From vibrant colors to scratch-n-sniff, stickers are a fun way to personalize your belongings and express yourself! Stickers are typically made with paper, plastic or vinyl with adhesive on the back.

Here are some fun facts about stickers:

  • Stickers date back to the mid 1700’s when tax stamps were applied to items that were being taxed. They also were used for the early version of postage stamps.
  • Early versions didn’t have the adhesive on the back. Instead, they were manually glued on.
  • The modern version of stickers were released in 1935.
  • The first bumper sticker was created in 1946 to advertise Rocky Mountain’s Rocky City.
  • The sticker on fruit in the grocery is edible and FDA-approved…but the jury is still out as to whether it tastes good!

Who founded this day? The creator of this day was the company StickerGiant.
