Sticker Day- January 13

Sticker Day is a day to celebrate in honor of all types of stickers wherever they are. Stickers for decoration, stickers that are used as labels to mark prices, stickers to mark property, barcodes, stickers (stickers) and more.

It seems obvious to us that there are stickers that can be used for a lot of things, but what was before the stickers were invented?
The idea of ​​labeling the product came from European merchants in the 1980s. In order to promote their goods they would stick paper labels on their wares with the help of chewing gum.
Even before the merchants, an older sticker emerged - the stamp for sending letters. The first official postage stamp in the world was the "Black Penny", a stamp issued by the United Kingdom on 1 May 1840. The purpose of the stamps was to indicate that the delivery for the letters was paid for by the sender, because until then the letter delivery method was cumbersome and inefficient. The payment for the shipment applies to the recipient of the letter who did not always agree to pay and tracking the payment was very difficult.
The sticker day falls on January 13 each year in memory of R. Stanton Avery, who was born that day in 1907. Avery was an American from Oklahoma City who invented the self-adhesive labels (modern stickers). He took out a $ 100 loan and built a machine that created the pressure-sensitive stickers, the world's first patent for adhesive paper. In 1953 he founded the company now known as Avery Dennison Corporation.

Since then the stickers have become more and more popular, and more and more uses have been found for them.
From childhood, stickers are used in kindergarten to teach children to catch up and develop fine motor skills. Kids love to collect colorful and decorated stickers and swap with each other. At school, stickers are affixed to notebooks and books and bags of sandwiches with the student's name. In supermarkets stick stickers with prices on products. There are stickers that stick to vehicles with political and other messages on them. Stickers have endless uses and when you think about it - this is a really ingenious and important invention.
 You can find thousands of stickers in Amazon

January 13th is also Skeptics Day and Rubber Duck Day
