What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I realize we did receive some stickers before, but I believe more stickers would be tolerated. Of course, you should deserve them first. Are there any possible sticker competitions?

Edit: Thanks Shog!

So we only need to send a SASE to the StackOverflow HQ in NYC:

110 William St, 28th Floor New York, NY 10038

And you can find more info here .

I was promised stickers for the survey (a year or so back?) but never got any. Pout pout. =( –  J. Steen Oct 11 '13 at 17:36

I want a "closed as off-topic" sticker. If someone is talking too much about nothing, I'll stick it over their mouth. –  Jamal Oct 11 '13 at 18:32

@Jamal Stack Exchange, Inc. disclaims all responsibility for acts of violence -- physical, psychological or otherwise -- performed against your person, your friends' persons, your or their family members' persons, or your or their property, resulting from this or similar stickings.

I've still got spare stickers. Right now I'd be much keener about that coffee mug, and I'd even review a large part of the close queue for one... –  Kerrek SB Oct 25 '13 at 23:09
    
I think it would be nice if there was a User-friendly "sticker-request" page, where you can pay like $1.00 or so to request them? –  Adel Jan 31 '14 at 18:49

As described in this now-ancient blog post you can get yourself some stickers by just sending us a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope. We'll put some Stack Exchange stickers in it and send it back.

(you can find the Stack Exchange mailing address on the network contact page)

While you can certainly request them, there's no guarantee that we have a sufficient stock of site-specific stickers to fulfill such requests: they're printed primarily for top-user swag and promotional event purposes.

Speaking of promotional events, if you happen to be attending (or hosting) a relevant conference, trade-event or user-group meeting, be sure and let us know that - we may be able to provide a bulk swag package for the event (particularly if you give us enough lead-time to produce and ship it). See also: How can I get Stack Exchange to send me to a conference?

Can I get several of them to plug the hole in my ceiling? –  user234239 Oct 28 '13 at 11:10

Be sure to check your local building codes and verify the structural integrity of the ceiling after patching. Maybe ask on Home Improvement. –  Shog9 Oct 30 '13 at 17:02

I can vouch for this. I sent in a self-addressed stamped envelope and got some, what I assume are stickers. :-) –  Rocket Hazmat Nov 5 '13 at 17:17
    
I have extra stamps, and will take you guys up on the offer. REPEATEDLY!!! :> –  Adel Nov 7 '13 at 1:32

If you use one of these physical mail services (I tried mailaletter.com), they will send a SASE for you. It's kind of pricey compared to a couple stamps, but the benefit is that you don't have to get up from your computer! –  beporter Jan 10 '14 at 20:38

Quick update: I just got my SO stickers. mailaletter.com worked fine (although boy is snail mail slow!) –  beporter Feb 7 '14 at 14:39
    
@beporter - how long did it take? i'm antsy for mine –  Adel Oct 18 '14 at 14:15

@Adel I don't remember exactly. The time stamps on my comments above suggest somewhere around 3-4 weeks? There are humans involved on the other end, so the result could be pretty variable I guess. –  beporter Oct 19 '14 at 15:16
    
Trying mailaletter.com from Europe right now, I'll report back when I hear back! –  Joost Mar 5 at 12:34
    
Reporting back, earlier than I expected; I received the stickers yesterday, 2015-03-24, after sending a SASE via the internet. The future is now. –  Joost Mar 25 at 8:25
    
@Joost how did you do? on the mailaletter.com user guide they say that return enveloppes for addresses outside the United States do not have postage. –  PierrOz Apr 11 at 10:09
    
@PierrOz Hmm, I see now. I had not even looked that far, initially, and just gave it a shot. I suppose the SE staff might have stuck a stamp on it themselves, then.. No guarantees! –  Joost Apr 11 at 12:56

I second this. I want stickers. SO MANY STICKERS.

What would I do with said stickers, you ask? I would place them

  • on my laptop,
  • on-or-around my cubicle at work, and
  • on my coworkers (probably on their backs, while they're not looking).

I think this promotes Stack Overflow and the Stack Exchange network in a positive and professional way.

STICKERS!!!

Where would I place stickers?

  • My laptop, top and bottom (it's too thin to put them on the sides)
  • Every door I see (because people couldn't help seeing them as they open the door)
  • My car (because I go a lot of places)
  • Other peoples' cars (because they might go a lot of places)
  • The back of my TI-84 (the buttons and screen are on the front)
  • My cat
  • Random places in Wal-Mart (because lots of people go to wal-marts)
  • My ceiling fan (because everyone looks at ceiling fans)
  • Random light bulbs (because then you would have to look at the sticker to remove it so you can see)
  • Inside red freehand circles (because that's where they originated)
  • On waffle makers (because then I would want to make more waffles)

When I saw "my car," I thought it said "my cat" for a second. Then I realized I was being ridiculous. Then I kept reading. –  Pops Oct 11 '13 at 17:40

+1 for "My cat" –  user234239 Oct 12 '13 at 13:24

I also want stickers!

I'm going on a canoe trip tomorrow, and it would be amazing if I could place a Stack Overflow sticker on the canoe to advertise to all the tech-savvy wild animals I'm likely to see.

Although, it seems this could become a bit of a sticking point, after all the previous ones were a little tacky. As long as SO adheres to proper techniques they should be able to avoid getting in a bind.

I only joined this network because of this, published on Jan 20 '12

I thought "Yes, I want stickers", so worked my way to the first page. Now, almost two years later, here I am, all addicted, no stickers o_Ø

It has been warned by authorities that WordPress is a gateway drug to real programming. It lures you in with stickers and plugins only to deceive you into craving real design patterns and a language that doesn't suck. Beware the siren's call before you end up on an arduous journey seeking Pythonic nirvana. –  Leon Stafford Oct 12 '13 at 3:41

Stickers!!!

yes please, they would be immeasurably handy for patching the hole in my roof whilst providing a visual advertisement to visiting friends, relatives, wildebeest and repairmen.

I travel to many conferences (scientific and technical) and teach senior students - it would be a great way of spreading the word throughout my professional activities.

I'd be able to stick them all over my dad to convince him to join!
