Tobacco companies had been producing series of collectable cards on various themes for a century, but Panini were the first company to sell packs of them as stand-alone items. Their glued stickers featuring sportsmen encouraged people to collect the whole set into an album. More recently, the invention of the inkjet desktop printer has brought them into the home, and digital printing has made ordering and printing them cheap and fast. They are now a part of everyday life, from the labels on food and postage addresses to fun stickers for kids and nametags for events.

At the turn of the century stickers were well established as a common component of the advertising world. In the early 1900s, a sticker paste was invented that could be applied and then dried. Historians have identified a type of sticker that was used in ancient Egypt to promote daily market rates. Archaeologists have recovered items at Egyptian digging sites that appear to be pricing and/or product descriptions sealed to walls of old cities. These artifacts are thought to have been made on a form of early paper, which was written on and then affixed to the walls of assorted market places throughout the land.

They have become more sophisticated, and can now be applied to a huge variety of objects. The introduction of vinyl has meant that they can now be used outdoors, on vehicles or windows. Decal stickers are now used to cover everything from branded company cars to racing sticker cars, trains and planes. The use of sheets of vinyl for this process means they can be removed and replaced relatively easily if branding or messages need to be changed, making them ideal for advertising. However, as needs sometimes change, they can be removed carefully without residue if required, making them ideal as removable adhesive labels too! This makes them versatile enough for a wide range of uses.
