Let’s face it.
The world of roller skating just wouldn’t be the same without stickers. They’re great little pieces of self-expression that you can slap on your helmet or your drink bottle. Not to mention, they are a great way to support businesses, artists, teams and skaters. During tough economic times, every little bit helps, and buying stickers is a low-cost way you can show support to others. Oh, and of course, they’re super cute.
Recently, we’ve gone a little bit sticker mad, so we wanted to share with you a few ways that stickers can be used as a positive tool for individuals and communities in the roller skating world.
1. Show Support to Others
As mentioned, buying a sticker from someone supports them financially and creatively. Recently, we put together some sticker packs that feature designs from some our favourite roller-skating artists like Shove Fat_girl_has_moxi, Kiana kianayouwana, Rebel queergirlstraightskate, bipocwhoskate and jessikatastrophie. We love how each design is completely unique and carries a message ranging from body positivity, to anti-racism, to queer empowerment. When you buy a sticker from someone, not only are you showing support to their artwork, but also their values. Stickers can be a great way to convey a message to those around you.
2. Express yourself
On the flip side, stickers are also an excellent way to express yourself! Whether that means making your own stickers, slapping a car sticker on the back of your skate mobile, or covering your helmet in stickers that resonate with you. The possibilities are endless when it comes to stickers, and they can support your choice of identity and expression in the skating world.
3. They’re cute as
Last but not least, stickers are cute as heck. Anyone who has been following RollerFit for a while will be familiar with our roller skating platypuses and galahs, and our fun slogans. These stickers spread a bit of happiness and remind of the sheer joy of roller skating even if you’re stuck in a classroom looking down at your exercise book, or at your desk at work.
So, there you have it. We love stickers, and we’re sure you do.
