How To Get Free Stickers + Companies That Will Send Them

Everyone loves to accessorize their laptops, water bottles, cars, notebooks, and more with stickers.  I’ve received a few questions regarding obtaining stickers, so today’s post is something that I hope will be helpful to you all; how to get free stickers!  I personally have an embarrassingly large collection of stickers due to my obsession with getting them in eighth grade and I thought I’d help you get some too!  There are a few ways to get stickers; by emailing companies, asking for them in stores, filling out request forms, and with purchase.  Now, let me explain them!

So, how do you go about emailing a company?  Who do you email?  What do you say?  Well, first you need to find an address to send the email to, which you can usually locate somewhere around a “contact” or “customer service” tab on a brand’s website.  When writing the emails, I always said something along the lines of the paragraph below.  Feel free to copy and paste this filling in your own name and address!

Hey!  My name is ______ and I absolutely love your company!  I was wondering if you’d be willing to send me a few stickers.  I would love to promote your company around my school campus by putting your stickers on my water bottle, notebooks, laptop, etc.  If you’re willing to send some stickers, please send them to the following address:

(Your Name)

(Your Street Name)

(Your City, State, and Zip Code)

Thank you so much, have a wonderful day!

(Your Name)

Here are the names and emails of some companies that I have successfully received stickers from this way in the past:

Vineyard Vines – tieguys@vineyardvines.com

Southern Proper – customerservice@southernproper.com

Chaco – customerservice@chacos.com

Sperry Topsider – customerservice@sperry.com

Yeti – internationalorders@yeti.com

Smothers & Branson – info@smathersandbranson.com

High Cotton – customerservice@highcottonties.com

Johnnie O – wingman@johnnie-o.com

(Disclaimer: I can’t 100% guarantee that these brands are still willing to send stickers, but they sent me stickers a few years ago!)

When you visit a company’s store or one of their retailers, there’s a good chance they’ll have stickers either to give out for free, to sell, or to include with purchase (or sometimes all three.)  If you’re in the store of a company that you’re sure makes stickers, ask an employee if they have any free stickers.  They might say no, but what do you have to lose?  I haven’t physically been in a ton of preppy stores (I do a lot of online shopping – I’ve only been in a Vineyard Vines store once) so I can’t tell you exactly where this will work, but it’s always worth a shot!

Some companies know their stickers are desired and have sticker request forms online that just take a few minutes to fill out.  These requests might just ask for your name and address to send the stickers to or require that you send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the company inside another envelope.  A few companies I know of that have request forms are listed along with the link to their form below.

Jadelynn Brooke – www.jadelynnbrooke.com/pages/happy-sticker-request (and when the form asks you how you became aware of Jadelynn Brooke products, please mention that you saw them on my page!)

Southern Tide – http://www.southerntide.com/sticker-request-form

Southern Marsh – http://www.gratsistickers.com/order.cfm?shop=southernmarsh

Southern Lure – https://www.southernlure.com/pages/stickers-1

Lastly, most companies include free stickers with any online order.  A few of these companies include Jadelynn Brooke, Fraternity Collection, Vineyard Vines, Lauren James, Southern Tide, United, Tiny Tulip Monograms (special details here,) The Lucky Knot, SoutherndoeCountry Club Prep, and many more.

Here are a few of the many stickers I have collected.

Easy DIY Halloween Costume Collab

As I’m sure you’re well aware, Halloween is next Monday, which means most parties will be this weekend.  Last year I was invited to a Halloween party super last minute and had no idea what to dress up as.  I must have read every “clever Halloween costumes” article on BuzzFeed but I couldn’t find anything I really liked.  This year, I realized there are a ton of cute costumes that are super easy to make yourself!  Today’s post is a collaboration with my friend, Fiona, of Preppy NYC!  Fiona and I are each sharing a costume that you can easily make at home, so be sure to check out her post here!

I’ve created a cow costume, but with a few pattern adjustments (i.e. changing the shirt color, headband attachments, and felt shapes) this could easily be a rabbit, leopard, pig, giraffe, or just about any other animal with ears!  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • a big plain tee (can be purchased at Walmart or Target)
  • felt (can be purchased at Michaels or Walmart)
  • a plain headband (can be purchased at WalgreensWalmartTarget, etc.)
  • leggings/jeans (I think it’s safe to assume you probably already have at least one of these)
  • safety pins or a hot glue gun (can be purchased at Walmart or Michaels)
  • Converse (or another basic shoe to wear with your costume)

First you need to cut your shapes out of felt.  I cut out black spots for my cow costume, but you might cut out a white belly for your rabbit costume.  After you cut out an appropriate amount of shapes, attach them to your tee using safety pins or a hot glue gun.  I used safety pins, and if you do so too I recommend pinning the shapes from the inside of your shirt to avoid showing the part where the pin fastens.  Once you complete your shirt, it’s time to work on your headband!  For the cow ears, I folded two pieces of white felt and cut an ear shape through the four layers at once.  I attached these base ear shapes to the headband by putting the headband into the crease of the ear shape and safety-pinning the top and bottom of each ear (you could use a hot glue gun depending on your preference.)  Then, I cut some smaller black felt spots and attached them to the ears with safety pins as well (again, you could use hot glue if you prefer.)  If you chose to do another animal, say a rabbit, you might cut out pink ovals to attach to your grey ears.  Now pair your tee and headband with leggings or jeans and some simple shoes and you’re set!

Thanks for reading!  Don’t forget to check out Fiona’s post here for another fun costume idea!
