Three Things : Letter Stickers


I am a classic typeface kind of person. I like clean lines in both serif (letters with the "little feet" on them) and sans serif styles (without the "feet"). I also mainly pick up black, white, red, and brown. Here's a few of the ones I keep coming back to again and again:

1. Scenic Route Parker. I also definitely like Omaha.

2. Three Bugs In A Rug Red Alphabet Stickers. This one is great for those times you want a mixed typeface set.

3. American Crafts MOMA sticker book in black and white. One of the reasons I love this set is that it comes with a LOT of stickers. Great for multiple projects.

    I love these letter stickers, they are a staple for me!! And the American Craft Thickers (I love to play with fonts) are addictive.

    my favorites have always been the Scenic route ones. I've had bad luck with my thickers not sticking. My first love was the making memories rub-ons in the skinny packages. Loved those!

    Dear Ali,
    I was looking through your archival posts and saw the beautiful big alphabets displayed around your house, namely E and A etc.
    Where did you purchase them and is there any way I can get them online as I live in Singapore!
    Thanks for your inspiring posts and you have the most adorable boy in the world. God bless. :)

    Wuling - I have picked those letters up at a variety of different places. I know one store in San Francisco that carries LOTS of different letters and I bet they would work with you on shipping them overseas. You can check them out here: Timeless Treasures (

    I agree! With all the really neat stuff out there to use for emphasis (rub ons, negative space, chipboard, grungeboard, computer fonts, etc.) I still LOVE the good old sticker letters. I always stock up when they are on sale. I use them at work as well as home. I guess it's like having a nice black suit in the closet - always appropriate - not always as stylish or fun as some other choices, but ALWAYS appropriate. I sound so conservative! Heeheehee

    Morning Ali,
    I love sticky Alpha's too! I have two huge binders full of them...always drawn to them when looking around in my LSS....Do I need more?....YES! LOL. I especially love the Red set from 3 Bugs in a Rug...first time seeing that. Gotta go hunt for it now. Thanks!

    Me too - I love sticker letters. Clean lines. The ones you showed are great. Doodlebug has a font that is clean too, but I'm going to look for the AC ones you mentioned.

    alpha stickers are one of my favorite staples for scrapping. I have a *thing* for fonts. My current faves, in sticker form, are both manufactured by American Crafts. Simply Chic, "Runway" in black, the other is Monogram Mumbo Jumbos in white. Both are a great size to use with larger scale photos. I like to use the small vinyl letter stickers you can get from office supply stores too. Mine are made by Chartpak, I use the 1/4 in. and 1/2 in. sizes regularly. They are perfect for sub titles, names, card fronts etc.. they come with hundreds of letters, and a variety of sizes. I don't worry about ever running out. :~)

    First thing I saw on your blog I LOVED...your quote on the Left, by Marilyn Thompsen. How true...we are all great to someone. Isn't it wonderful just to be loved by our precious ones?!

    I love letter stickers, especially ones with a little dimension (thick cardstock stickers, chipboard, etc.)
    My favorites are thickers, MM glitter stickers, and pink paislee stickers

    Oh I so love Scenic Route alphas too. I was lucky enough to get 5 packets of Redman Reds on sale for half price, won't take me long to use them all up though, especially with Chrissy coming up, Tiff :o)
