A few years ago, when Snapchat first announced its first product, its stickers and stickers packs were nothing to write home about.
Today, the company is a $100 billion juggernaut with more than 7 billion monthly active users.
And while Snapchat has made some major strides in making its stickers a more appealing and engaging alternative to stickers, it hasn’t completely eradicated the stigma attached to stickers.
That stigma was already an issue with stickers.
As long as people felt like they were buying something for a reason, stickers were likely to remain a novelty.
But in the age of social media, where people are more likely to interact in virtual spaces, stickers can become an increasingly ubiquitous, and, frankly, scary, part of our lives.
To combat the stigma, Snapchat has been experimenting with a new way to use stickers: with sticky phones.
The company announced the new Snapchat Sticky phone cases on Wednesday, but it also released a handful of stickers for those looking to add a little more variety to their Snapchat Stories experience.
You’ll need an HTML5 capable browser to see this content.
If you don’t already have one, head over to the Snapchat website to download and install the latest version.
Here’s what the new Sticky phones look like, with a handful available to download for $9.99.
To use a Stickier phone case in Snapchat Stories, all you have to do is tap the sticker to reveal a screen that lets you choose the size of the sticker.
For a sticker that is 4mm thick, the case is a little larger than the phone itself, but the sticker itself is only 2.8mm thick.
The stickers come in three different sizes, ranging from 0.5mm to 1.5 mm.
The standard Sticky case, which you can buy for $19.99, has a single sticker per side, so you can easily grab one for a day or even just for the occasional Snapchat experience.
The stickier case comes with two extra side-mounted screens that you can slide out and slide in.
Snapchat is also offering stickers for the $99 Sticky smartphone case, available to purchase in the app.
The sticker sizes for the two stickers are 2.9 and 2.5, which is the standard size for stickers.
To make them stickier, Snapchat is using a material called PURESTICK that has a unique polymer composition that will help it hold the stickers in place.
Snapchat Stickies come in a variety of different colors, including red, green, yellow, and blue, as well as the standard Stickylike yellow and blue.
If there’s one thing that sticks to Snapchat’s stickers, however, it’s the sheer amount of colors they are.
There are literally dozens of colors that are available for purchase in Snapchat stickers, with each sticker being either black, red, or blue.
As Snapchat explained, stickers are “a great way to make a splash with your friends or a nice way to get your attention.”
Snapchat has released stickers for several different messaging apps, but Stickys have always been a popular choice.
The new Stickies, however: they’re now available in Snapchat.
