Camera Stickers I’m Obsessed With

Last week I got a chance to actually take some photos at my job instead of just editing! It was a wonderful if short-lived break from staring at a computer, and it inspired me to pick out some of my favorite photography and camera stickers.

Clear Cameras

As you may have heard, I am not in the planner community (yet!), but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate planner stickers. These clear ones are extra cool and really accentuate the classic, simple design.

I Heart Portra

Film portra sticker

When I worked at a photography store (where I got this sticker), we were always selling out of Portra 400. We tried to figure out if there was an exact source recommending the film, or some other reason people were SO obsessed with it. But nah, it’s just a solid stock with good latitude.

Photographer MacBook Decal

Uhm WHAT. This is so cool. I have an orange skin with a film slate on my elderly MacBook, but this kind of makes me want a new one.

Mamiya TLR

Yes, this is my sticker. Did you know it’s based on a real camera that I own? When I discovered medium format photography in college, I fell in love. I really have a thing for square frames, so finding out I could use them outside of Instagram was pretty sweet.

I Shoot People

If you’re a photographer you might be sick of this joke. But come on, it’s still a little funny. (I actually have this sticker. Love this shop!)

Heartbeat

Young, idealistic me would have loved this sticker. Older, still-idealistic-but-sometimes-not-as-much me also likes it. Capturing an incredible image really can get your heart racing.

Don’t Put Off Until Tomorrow What You Can Do Today

I saw this in one of my recent searches and had to include it. Just because you CAN Photoshop, doesn’t mean you SHOULD. (This also applies to filmmaking.) Almost any time I’ve been lazy and not fixed something during a shoot, I’ve regretted it. Seize the moment, friends.

Have a cool sticker that I missed? Let me know in the comments!

Places to Put Laptop Stickers Besides Your Laptop

or: obvious things you carry around with you that have some amount of surface area

While portable computers do provide the perfect canvas for expressive adhesives, you can think outside the box (literally) and display your stickers all over the place!

Phones

Smartphones are basically tiny laptops at this point, so you can definitely put a laptop sticker on your phone. Smaller, not-as-smart phone? Smaller stickers. Chances are you take your phone everywhere with you (I know, society… technology… go climb a tree… blah blah blah), so you can really get your couple bucks worth out of that sticker! (Please tell me you didn’t pay more than a couple bucks.) The one thing to consider is the durability of the sticker – if your phone is going in and out of your pocket all the time, the sticker might wear down.

Tablets

Also small computers. Decorate them with personality and love.

Instrument case

Desperado Antonio Banderas

As a musician, you’re probably an artistic person who likes to express yourself. (Unless you’re a drummer.) Well that guitar case could use a sprucing, don’t you think? Just don’t get upset if your stickers are exposed to cheap beer, cramped vans, or face-melting solos. And if your guitar case is actually holding a bunch of weapons, it may be better to keep it nondescript.

Skateboards

Skaters are probably too cool to be reading this post, but maybe you know someone with a skateboard. I bet they would love some stickers for it.

Cars

I am still on the fence about bumper stickers, but they are a classic choice. Recent favorites: “Adults on board – we want to live too” and “Giant Meteor [for president] 2016.” Some laptop stickers may not fare well on the outside of your car, so bring them inside! You could even get some scratch-and-sniff stickers instead of an air freshener. (Kidding.)

Shoes

I don’t know how long it would last, but you would definitely have most unique pair of kicks in the room if you slapped a sticker or two on them.

Beverage containers

Coffee laptop stickers

A travel mug sticker, which you could stick on a travel mug.

If you’ve gotten into this whole ~hydration trend, why not get even cooler and decorate your water bottle? Or travel mug, if you’re more into the caffeination thing. Of course, these stickers will need to be waterproof to make it through washing.

Wallet

If your phone case is your wallet, see first list item. Also, don’t you worry about losing everything at once?

Notebooks

Whether you’re in school, an aspiring author, or Harriet the Spy, brighten up those bound pages with a quirky sticker. Who knows, it could be a conversation starter while you’re writing at your favorite coffee shop.

Albums

If you’re a serious collector, get a sticker album! They even make ones that allow the stickers to be removed.

 

Do not recommend:

Doors

As someone who is already dreading re-painting her apartment in like, over a year, this scene from Broad City haunts me. (For more than one reason.)

Clothes

Unless it’s a name tag. And even then, it’s iffy.

Sunglasses

May impair vision.

 

Bottom line: stickers are fun, so find places that need fun, and add a sticker!
