Sticky9 Celebrates Third Anniversary with Platform and Product Expansion

A lot has changed over the past 3 years.

Consumers Are Now Able to Create Mementos Using Photos from Two New Platforms – Camera Roll and Desktop.

July 21, 2014 – Sticky9, a major online platform that turns personal photos into original products, is celebrating its three-year anniversary on July 18 with an expansion to its creative platform and product offering. For the last three years, the company has achieved fame for transforming Instagram pictures into quality, customised products. Beginning today, Sticky9 provides consumers with more options by expanding beyond Instagram, allowing users to create products from photos on the camera rolls of their smartphones, and desktops.

“It has been incredible to watch the growth and success of Sticky9 over the last three years. Now, our loyal customers have even more photos than ever including ones on platforms other than Instagram. They have asked for a way to turn these images into lovely mementos as well, and we of course want to give them what they want”, said Lawrence Merritt, managing director of Sticky9. “Our goal moving forward is to make it possible for people to utilise all of their favorite pictures that may have never left their phones or computers to create Sticky9 products.”

Since its launch in 2011, Sticky9 has delivered its popular customisable magnets, smartphone and tablets cases into the homes and hands of millions. The company’s milestones include:

  • Printing 5,522,229 magnets that have been ordered from 227 different countries
  • The United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Sweden, Brazil, Italy, Norway, and Singapore are the top 10 countries to place the most orders, in rank order
  • An order from the United Arab Emirates in October 2013 for 64 packs (576 magnets), is the largest purchase to date

New product offering
This week, Sticky9 is also introducing Magnet Wall Frame, a beautiful hanging frame that displays a selection of customers’ most prized magnets. With Magnet Wall Frame, consumers can decorate their home with their favorite photo memories by alternating Sticky9 classic large magnets in the sleek, black frame. Magnet Wall Frame retails for £44.99 and includes a set of nine classic magnets.Sticky9 will continue to expand its offerings this year by allowing customers to use images from Facebook and launching several new products, including reusable, Smart Stickers that can be easily removed and transferred between surfaces. Unlike traditional stickers, Sticky9’s innovation boasts long-lasting adhesive that does not leave behind sticky residue. A perfect solution for nonmagnetic surfaces and for personalising your tech gadgets, the stickers will be available this Autumn.
