For over a century, stickers have been used to label and advertise goods and wares. It wasn’t until the early 1900s, that Ray Stanton Avery created the stickers that we know – those that have a self-adhesive back. And it’s his birthday we celebrate the holiday on and thanks to his invention that we are able to celebrate at all. Every year, there are more stickers to add to the collection and thus more reasons to celebrate. From bumper stickers to sticker books to silly stickers, everyone has a reason to celebrate this little known holiday.
