About

Alternative Accessories

This shop has gone through a re-brand before it was even a store! And it may still be in that process!

Our store started with origami stars and while they're outnumbered in the store right now, they're still at the heart of everything we do. Each holds a positive affirmation that can be unfolded and read.

The majority of our store is pinback buttons. Something that can be used to show personality, individuality, and causes that are close to the heart. Subtle but bold, they're one of our favorites to design and create.

We've recently been able to add decals to our store as well, very exciting!

We do add some paintings (acrylic and spray paint) every time the mood strikes us.

The future holds prospects for even newer product lines. Keep checking back!!

Regardless of what we do and the products we create, we do so to highlight the different, the nerdy, the alternative, the bold aspects of people. It is bold to love who you are. It's bold to outwardly go against stereotypes, stigma, and the status quo. We hope we can help you along on that personal journey.

Don't be afraid to say hello!

Keep on rocking \m/

We cannot wholesale origami stars due to the time intensive nature of their production. But depending on the amount you need there may be possibilities.

Please contact us as orders@xplicitxpression.co if you have any questions!

What are origami affirmation stars?

Origami affirmation stars are made using a single strip of paper. On that strip of paper, a positive affirmation is typed (or written). Once created, the receiver of the stars may place the star, horizontal between their index finger and thumb. Simply push to make the star flat, find where the end of the paper strip was tucked in a paper fold, and unravel the start to reveal your message!

How do I apply your vinyl decals?

You will receive your vinyl decal with a clear side and an opaque side.

Step 1: Clean the surface with soap and water. Try to avoid cleaners such a Windex as it can leave a residue that may interfere with application.

Step 2: Using something firm as a credit card, ruler, etc. Run it over the clear side with pressure to ensure the decal adheres to the clear transfer tape.

Step 3: Remove the opaque backing ensuring none of the design is stuck to it. If it is, repeat step 2.

Step 3: The decal should now be completely stuck to the tape. Line it up on your surface as desired and stick the decal down.

Step 4: Use your firm item to run over it once more.

Step 5: Remove the tape ensuring none of the design is stuck to it.
