*September -- Starting in September, 2021, my friends at BuyOlympia will fulfill all sticker orders. I will now be donating all of MY profits. They are doing me a huge service by keeping the stickers in stock, reordering directly from StickerGuy when needed, and shipping to you muck quicker than I am able to do...so they will keep a cut of the sales to account for all of that labor and responsibility. If you have a store, you can set up a wholesale account with them, easy! Click here!
