Snapchat stickers: The joy of Snapchat stickers

As a child, I loved stickers. Sticker books offered endless possibilities: I could add kittens, puppies, hearts to any item I had!

Even though I am now an adult, my passion for stickers has not diminished. A sticker can communicate more than words and have a greater emotional impact than words. While I love stickers on my laptop, and thank you cards, there are very few options for placing stickers in adult life.

Social media stickers can bring back the childhood fun, especially with Snapchat. The personalization possibilities are endless because the stickers can be personalized digitally.
