9 Instagram Moments: Our Story So Far!

This is a pretty momentous week for StickyGram and for you, StickyGram lovers! Changes are afoot at HQ and we’re excited to tell you that things are only set to get bigger and better in our corner of the Instagram world. 

Today we’re looking back at our story so far. Let’s take a walk down memory lane! 

image

This is one of our very first Instagram photos and an early snap of those fun little Instagram magnets we all know and love :) 

image

When Instagram opened their photo sharing service for Android users, we welcomed thousands and thousands of new Instagrammers to the world of StickyGram. We sent our very own black cab across London to celebrate!

image

StickyGram fans, you are an international bunch! We encouraged you all to help us StickyGram the World and we did some StickyGramming of our own when we sent our French friends an extra special Bastille Day message… made from magnets! 

image

Our StickyGram family grew when we were adopted by Photobox. We got a new home and everything! This was a truly massive moment for us and we’ve not looked back! One of our all-time highlights :) 

image

When we went to live with Photobox, we swapped Exmouth Market for Borough Market. Every day, we cross London Bridge to get to StickyGram HQ and we never tire of this spectacular view! 

image

Our product collection got bigger when we introduced our custom phone cases and iPad covers. You seemed to approve!

image

Now, you might think that drinking tea isn’t really a ‘highlight’ or a ‘special moment’, but I can assure you that a steady flow of hot beverages keeps the StickyGram team ticking! We do our best thinking with a mug in our hands…

image

Photo magnets are at the heart of everything we do. We recently added a new member to the growing magnet family - The Jigsaw :) You asked us to make this - so we did! 

image

We announced that big news was coming and we told you were planning to change our name from StickyGram to Sticky9. You told us what you thought about our ideas for a new logo and we listened to what you had to say…

And now here we are, ready to embark on the next part of the adventure. We want you to join us! Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter + Pinterest to keep up to date with all the latest - or get in touch at hello@stickygram.com with your thoughts and ideas! 

Like we always say at exciting moments like these…

Bundles & Bundles of Stuff!

These remarkable photographs are part of Hans Kemp's project 'Bikes of Burden'. The loads transported via motorcycle through the streets of Vietnam seem absurd at first - but as Kemp’s collection of 148 photographs shows, this skill of cleverly packing the bikes is one the Vietnamese have surely mastered!

A selection of near-to-life-size photographs from ‘The Bikes of Burden’ collection are on permanent display at Taiwan’s Fine Art Museum. To see more from the series, visit Hans Kemp’s website

Since we’re getting set to load you up with bundles and bundles of new and exciting stuff over the coming weeks, we thought maybe we could all take some tips from the Vietnamese motorcyclists!

A Brand New Season Begins!

1 note

It feels like Spring has sprung in London today. Temperatures have risen those crucial couple of degrees allowing us to shed a layer of winter woollens and Mr. Blue Sky made a welcome appearance :) 

Now we’ve enjoyed a spot of fresh air, we’re ready to welcome a bright new season and we’re excited about all the changes Springtime brings! 

We’ve been snooping through #spring on Instagram. Here are a few of our favourite snaps…
