About madebyRachel1

Sales 624
On Etsy since 2018

a journey of a thousand stickers begins with a single hobby

While I've always been a crafty and artistic person, I started down this path of turning my creative hobbies into a business about 6 years ago making handmade cards with punches and stamps. I quickly realized that my favorite part of cardmaking was writing phrases and greetings in fancy lettering.

I stumbled upon a local modern calligraphy class, which skyrocketed my interest in calligraphy and hand-lettering. Over years of practice, classes, and experimenting with various mediums, I’ve developed an appreciation for handmade paper goods and snail mail. In 2018, I decided to bring that appreciation to life through my opening this shop, offering original watercolor cards and modern calligraphy artwork.

Fast forward to 2020, I lost my full-time job and found myself with lots of time on my hands to invest in my shop and broaden my artistic skillset. I have always loved stickers since the days of collecting them in my sticker books and designing and selling my own stickers became my next goal. I learned digital art and researched sticker manufacturers, and I am constantly coming up with new sticker designs!

As you may have noticed, my shop evolves as my skills and interests evolve. Thanks for visiting, and stick around and stay tuned for what's next in store!

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

I offer wholesale or bulk pricing and require a minimum order quantity. Send me a message to discuss wholesale orders.

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to do custom work, however there are a few important things to note!

↠ Because I work with manufacturing partners to print and cut my stickers, custom stickers require a minimum order quantity of 10.

↠ I am happy to work with you to tweak or customize an existing sticker design of mine.

↠ A design fee will be built into the final price, in addition to the manufacturing cost. The design fee varies based on the level of complexity - from modifying an existing design to creating a brand new design with edit rounds

↠ I do not accept orders for stickers of others' designs. All custom orders must be designed by me, in partnership with you.

Send me a message to discuss custom orders.

Care instructions

↠ Stickers are waterproof and weatherproof but not indestructible

↠ Stickers are dishwasher-safe, however hand-washing is recommended to maintain their longevity and durability

↠ Stickers work great on bikes, cars, skateboards, and other outdoor items. Like most things, however, they will fade in the sun over time (typically over 3-5 years)

↠ If you make a mistake placing your sticker, most stickers can be repositioned one more time if they are carefully peeled off

↠ Stickers can be removed without leaving residue

What are vinyl stickers used for?

Vinyl stickers are a fun way to personalize and decorate just about any smooth, dry surface.

Because they are constructed of layers of vinyl and laminate, they are more durable than standard paper stickers and therefore can be used on more items and more permanent surfaces without risk of peeling or fading.

A (non-exhaustive!) list of places where you can stick your stickers:

↠ laptops
↠ tablet and phone cases
↠ water bottles - including Hydroflask, Yeti, and acrylic tumblers
↠ skateboards
↠ cricuts, silhouettes, and printers
↠ containers
↠ notebooks and journals

How does Send A Sticker work?

Send A Sticker is an easy and affordable way to let a friend or a loved one know you are thinking of them. A "leveled up" greeting card, if you will.

Choose a card and a sticker (or two) to include, and add a Gift Message for your recipient. Provide their address as the Shipping Address.

I will handwrite your message in the card and sign it from you and send it to your friend or loved one!

Send A Sticker makes a great surprise happy mail because it's more than just a card and less than the cost of mailing a package.

Ideal for long distance relationships or friendships, a college student away from home, or even a local loved one that you haven't been able to see in awhile.

You tell me what to include, and I'll do the rest!
