How to Place Your Face on a Sticker

Making stickers out of pictures of myself is just kind of fun. I’m sure all of you played with stickers when you were younger, right? If you’ve always wanted to turn your face into a custom-cut sticker, now you can!

The person who started this service asked me if I’d be interested in receiving some face stickers. I thought sure – why not! I get them in the mail, and they scared me. It’s not the fault of the stickers… it’s simply because my mug could scare off robbers! Maybe you have need for some theft deterrent. If that’s the case, you can use my Chris head stickers for that purpose.

My Sticker Face is a brand-new way to get your face anywhere and everywhere you want it to be. Upload your picture, edit it to look its best, and then place your order. They use high-quality vinyl to print your stickers, instead of cheap paper. The quality could be better, but hey… they’re fun!

One thing I wasn’t crazy about is the fact that you cannot view your actual sticker sheet prior to purchase. However, you will receive an email within 24 hours of ordering, with your proof attached. The cost per sheet is fairly low, at $5.99 each.

What a fun, unique gift idea for a younger person in your life… or even for your mom! Send her a sheet of stickers with your adorable, smiling face on it for Mother’s Day. She’ll love it!

Do You Put Stickers and Skins on Your Hardware?

Yes, this is me you’re watching in this video. But that’s also me in the sticker on the back of my notebook. How awesome looking is that sticker? Customizing your notebook or hardware with skins or stickers not only makes them more fun – it also allows you to help identify them as yours. The sticker on the back of my Macbook came with a full skin. I uploaded a square image, instead of a circular one. So, it didn’t look right. I simply cut it out and made it look much better. Skinit allows you to customize your own skin.

Ponzi's Garbage Pail Kids

Ponzi’s going to be a Garbage Pail Kid!!! Yes, you all know my fascination with Garbage Pail Kids (even though I’m still mising Bonus Card B5, COLE Gate). A few weeks ago, I emailed Luis Diaz with a small request: that he create a GPK incorporating Ponzi’s two names (well, “Ponzi” is just her nickname – with Latthanapon being her birth name). You see, as I was going through ANS5, she lamented that they never have any GPKs with her name on them. I thought: “Let me see if I can commission an artist to surprise her.” Sure enough, Luis will create a GPK just for you (different options at different prices). He whipped up this sketch:

Pencil Sketch - Ponzi GPK - Garbage Pail Kid - Piercing PONZI and Lust-Upon LATTHANAPON

This will be made into two separate cards: Piercing PONZI and Lust-Upon LATTHANAPON. And today, did a series of watercolors for us to choose from (yes, I couldn’t hold the surprise back when the original pencil GPK sketch came in). We picked the upper far right and the lower far left – which will be arriving in traditional Garbage Pail Kids sticker dimensions soon enough. This is just too cool:

Final Watercolor Copy - Ponzi GPK - Garbage Pail Kid - Piercing PONZI and Lust-Upon LATTHANAPON

These cards will be priceless! I may ask him to go back and render a full-color version of one of ’em to make it look like a genuine GPK. Maybe I’ll just commission another one? What about… WINER Diner, Noble SCOBLE, KEVIN Rosey, Scary ARRINGTON, RUBEL Yell, Tin CANTER, PIRILLO Armadillo, Messy MESSINA, or PONZI Screams? Those would be perfect giveaways at Gnomedex.
