Hipster Stickers for Self-Expression

One of the cheapest and easiest ways to flaunt your ideas or personality is with stickers. Stickers, you say. Aren’t those for kids?

Clings can go on anything from a phone case to the bumper of your car if you’re that brave sort, so we say no. Stickers are for everyone, including hipsters.

Whether you want to make a statement about the environment, your beliefs, or just use them as a reminder to keep your thoughts positive, stickers are an easy way to express yourself. Even better, they’re fun.

Just because you’ve grown up doesn’t mean everything has to be serious all the time. Any little moment you can find some lighthearted bliss in adult life, we say run with it.

Hipster Stickers: Stick on Some Self-Expression

Decorative clings are such a (generally) innocent way to do this, that we’ve compiled some of our favorite hipster stickers. We also thought of some fun new ways you can use stickers as an adult without marking up your Apple computer or your vehicle.

When you think of stickers, you probably think of the old-school type that you’d peel and stick as a kid. Well, the fun doesn’t have to stop if you’ve left your childhood year in the past—the distant past for some of us.

There is something so simplistic and enjoyable about opening a package of stickers that are not to pass off to your kids or nieces and nephews, but instead, to use yourself.

New Age Hipster Stickers

If you haven’t looked for hipster stickers, you might be shocked to discover how many packages exist for grown-ups.

If you like galaxy vibes, there are clings for that. Stickers aren’t just for small decorations on notebook paper. Consider wall decals like this chakra collection for your meditation or yoga space.

For the holidays, why not skip the text or app invites, and mail actual cards for an ugly holiday sweater party with matching stickers.

Mobile Living Clings

Some adventurous hipsters out there have taken to “van life” or some form of mobile residency in minimalist spaces. If you are or know someone who is all about sleeping on wheels, we love this converted school bus cling, as well as airstream stickers.

Event Planning Stickers for Hipsters

hipster stickers

As adult life progresses, more and more of those in the counter-culture will succumb to the stress and sometimes, though we’ll admit it grudgingly, enjoyment of throwing milestone parties such as baby showers. Hey, even a cocktail party can be fun if you serve the right craft beer or ironic cocktails.

So, we found some of our favorite stickers for hipster events, because this is one of the easiest ways to have fun peeling those babies off the backing and slapping them on an envelope or even a drinking glass.

Chalkboards might be overdone for some hipsters, but the vibe is decidedly vintage, so it’s timeless and looks somehow both casual and elegant at once (we wish we could pull that off). Chalkboard stickers are super fun because you not only get to stick them on things, but you can write on them, too.

As an alternative to the chalkboard look, we also love these clings that look like brown paper bag material. Again, you can write on them!

  • Each roll include 120 stickers; 3 Different Designs; About 33 Stickers Per Design

If you’re throwing a party with actual glassware, let’s be honest here—mixing up drink can be a problem, and wine charms are way too dated (but not retro enough) for most hipsters. Reusable glass clings are a decent alternative.

If you have invitations or announcements to send (or just enjoy a good old-fashioned letter), we adore these happy mail envelope stickers. Perhaps our all-time favorites are realistic-looking wax stamp stickers.

Sticker Projects for Grown-Up Hipsters

If you no longer use notebooks for school, and your Trapper-Keeper days are decades behind you, there are still plenty of options for using stickers. Some of the projects we enjoy the most are:

  • Buying a cheap or second-hand side table and plastering the top with clings, then coating it with Mod Podge. You can do this with a coffee table, too.
  • Creating your own art with stickers and framing it.
  • Wrapping presents with a solid wrapping paper and decorating the gift with one or several stickers.
  • Using removable wall clings to decorate in areas you don’t want to use nails.
  • Placing a few decals on potted plant bases.
  • Writing letters the old-fashioned way and sealing the envelopes with stickers.
  • Getting a vintage trunk and plastering worldly clings all over it.
  • Decorate a personal journal cover with your favorite designs.
  • Mark notable dates in a wall calendar with stickers to help you see and remember events.

There is a lot you can do with clings even as a grown-up. Scrapbooking might get joked about, but don’t forget this as an option, too.

We have thousands of pictures on our phones, but how many albums do you have in your home compared to the photos your parents had around when you were a kid? Filling a scrapbook with solid colored paper and a single sticker next to some pictures can still be well-done and tasteful while expressing a mood with a particular memory.

Let That Stick

Whether you slap a single sticker on your favorite journal or decide to get more ambitious by lining the inside of a shelf with clings, we think using this childhood favorites is one of the simplest ways to unleash a bit of creativity on a budget with minimal effort. Stickers come in so many designs, any type of hipster can find something they like, so search out your personal interests and see what you can decorate with.
