"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Everyone loves stickers, but if you love film just as much and have a bajillion surfaces that are crying out for some much needed attention, we have an idea for you.
Combine the two loves of your life and make your very own film stickers!
Use these nifty 35mm stickers to decorate your world – everything from your water bottle to your notebook or your computer (just maybe stay away from sticking them on your cat).
So get your camera, expose some slides and make your very own sticky film!
Why we’re stuck on stickers
Besides, who doesn’t like stickers? You can put them on anything to make even the most cookie-cutter of objects suddenly very you (or very someone else if you’re giving them as a gift!).
What You’ll Need
Step 1: Do what you do best – take pictures!
If you’re using negative film, keep in mind that everything’s reversed! Red shows up as blue and vice versa. Use the colour reversal to your advantage or use the “invert” function in software like Photoshop and photograph your screen for something more realistic.
Step 2: Road trip to your favorite photo lab
Once you’ve finished filling up a roll of film with sticker-worthy shots, pay a visit to your local photo lab. Using the lingo of a true pro, tell the staff you want, “develop only, no mounting,” so you don’t have to spend all your time prying off the slide mounts or waste money on prints (unless you want them!).
Step 3: Cut, cut, cut
Now that you have a gorgeous strip of uncut positives or negatives, take some scissors to them and cut the strip down to individual exposures. It might feel a little unnatural at first – your mother always told you not to cut up your film – but you can do this!
Step 4: Make it sticky
Step 5: Stick it!
