Characters Welcome 6: An International Sticker Art Show

We’re really excited to announce the call for submissions for Characters Welcome 6: An International Sticker Art Show. We love the community of sticker artists that meet, exchange ideas and leave behind tokens of their amazing art here. Characters Welcome celebrates that community and reaches out to artists all over the world to show their best hand drawn and printed sticker art. Some photos from past Characters Welcome shows can be seen on our Instagram.

All are welcome to contribute to Characters Welcome 6. First time artists will be shown side by side with the seasoned titans. Stickers need not be character based. We prefer hand drawn stickers but printed, silk screened & collaged stickers are also very much welcome.

The stickers will be displayed in a show here on Friday September 15, 2017 from 7pm – 2am (21+) and Saturday September 16 from noon – 4pm (all ages). The boards with the compiled stickers as well as surplus sticker packs will be available for sale. We’ll have some very special raffle items and rad day of show surprises. 100% of ALL sales will go to benefit inspiring youth local arts programs.

We hope you will share your sticker art with us and the world through Characters Welcome and spread the word about the show to your fellow artists, friends and family. The creative exchange and collaboration of this show is at the very heart of what we love to do here at Mom’s.

The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2017. Please include your artist name, any Instagram or social media handles and as many stickers as you’d like! Submissions will not be returned.

Please mail all submissions to:
