By now, I think it's safe to assume we all know meetups and conferences are canceled for the foreseeable future. But how are we supposed to get our sticker fix?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Have you tried trading stickers online?
- Take & upload picture
- Get request
- Mail it out!
- Find a sticker you want
- Request & give your address
- Check your mailbox!
I'm not a pro, but I've done a little research. All of these numbers are based on putting the stickers in a regular letter envelope.
From the USA, it cost me $1.15 to send to Spain and the same to send to New Zealand.
Today, I found USPS sells global stamps for $1.20 each and that covers USA to anywhere in the world. However, if you're like me, I much prefer the cuteness of the other stamps. I just make sure they add up to $1.20.

Fen Slattery 🏳️⚧️SUP NERDS I have strong memories of getting promotional catalogs of stamps from the post office as a kid, enticing me to collect cool stamps, and this seems like a rad time to fulfill my childhood dream. So, this is a thread of the cool ass stamps you can get from USPS right now!22:35 PM - 13 Apr 2020
I have no answer for this. I don' know how long it takes for stickers to travel the world. All I know is, if you're in the USA and shipping to the USA, it should be no more than 3 days from shipping.
I sent some today to India and THe Netherlands. I'll update this post when I find out they've arrived.
I wrote a bit about how to get the most out of your stickers.
tl;dr of that post:
- keep them small
- include name/brand/social handle
- make sure they have value (cuteness, reminders, funny, etc)
