Greetings from Pipsticks!
We recently launched Pipsticks, a company to inspire kids, crafters and sticker lovers - and, to help parents, grandparents and gift givers. Pipsticks is a sticker subscription company that provides a selection of curated stickers to its subscribers every month. Stickers - like the ones many of us used to collect, trade, and obsess over as kids - sparkly ones, puffy ones, scratch n’ sniff ones. Pipsticks sources stickers from manufacturers all over the world in order to give its subscribers a gorgeously packaged, affordable, and awesome stash of stickers when they need them (because I find my family ALWAYS needs them).
As a mom of (almost) four, I really appreciate hands-off (and non-tech) projects for my kids. The sticker packs arrive with loads of stickers as well as a paper and postcard so that kids can use the pack completely on their own. The whole pack, from packaging to sticker selection, is designed to a fun and sophisticated standard, and totally child-friendly – giving parents a chance to take a break (or just cook dinner in peace and quiet) once in a while.
Please tell us about the beginnings of your business, and how you've come to be where you are now?
Maureen: I am a graphic designer and worked for years as a corporate brand manager managing large-scale projects and a team of designers before having kids. Once my first son, Atticus, was born, I took some time off and eventually started doing part-time free lance work when I found myself missing a creative outlet. I worked with many "mom start-ups," developing their brands and identity which was fantastic, but I found that I missed the big picture responsibilities of my corporate job. I come from a family of entrepreneurs and had always felt drawn to the idea of starting a business, but realized that it needed to be something flexible that would allow me to spend the bulk of time at home with my kids.
This weekend, Pipsticks is generously offering the following gift to ONE lucky SouleMama reader:
A 3-month Gift Sticker subscription. One Pipsticks sticker pack will be delivered to the happy recipient every month for three consecutive months.
