With every new design, we hope that our stickers bring you the same excitement and happiness that we feel every time we think of our culture and travel memories.
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for being interested in learning more about us and how blank tag co. began. We are excited to share with you our story of how this simple idea became such a huge part of our lives.
We’re Alondra and Remi and we started blank tag co. in February 2017 after we spent a week exploring Tokyo, Japan. We have been in a long distance relationship since 2015 and love to travel together because it allows us to see each other every two months. While we usually meet up in a city somewhere in the US, this was the first international trip we took as a couple.
Stickers can tell a story, and that’s exactly what Alondra Carbajal and Remi Silva of Blank Tag Co. hope their merch does for customers.
Their culturally conscious stickers sport phrases like “Me Vale” and transcend nationalities ― some are shaped like conchas and elotes; others like banh mi and ramen.
While in Tokyo, we visited various districts. During one of our walking tours, we noticed a really popular stationery store called Tokyu Hands and decided to check it out. We walked through the entire store and eventually stumbled upon a shelf full of stickers made by B-Side Label. As we took a closer look, we noticed how unique they were. The stickers were extremely high quality and had a strong focus on the Japanese culture. They were unlike anything we had ever seen and were truly unique. As we browsed through the collection, we wondered why there wasn’t something similar to B-Side Label in the United States. At this point, we simply purchased a few and left the store.
The next day, we went to Harajuku and found the B-Side Label flagship store tucked behind a main street. Again, we became amazed by the amount of stickers they had and couldn’t stop talking about how excited we were to have found something so unique to the Japanese culture. After a week of traveling through Tokyo and talking about the stickers, we knew that we had to bring this excitement to the U.S.
B-Side Label inspired us to create blank tag co. Culture and happiness are very important to both of us and we want to showcase that to the world, via stickers. Stickers are more than just a piece of paper you place somewhere. Stickers are an expression of who you are, what you associate with, and a way to capture memories. The stickers we make are chosen specifically with the aim to make all of our customers feel a sense of belonging and pride when they see them. We want to create stickers that will invoke emotion out of everyone who purchases or sees them. With every new design, we hope that our stickers bring you the same excitement and happiness that we feel every time we think of our culture and travel memories.
