I am a noodle freak. I crave for noodle almost everyday. I like to try different kinds of noodle, but nothing can beat ramen! That's the reason why I designed The Ramen Poster, the first ramen poster that introduced 25 different regional ramen recipes in Japan. My passion for ramen didn't stop there! I also designed The Ramen Poster 2.0 and a Japanese snack poster!
The Sticker Story
After designing for two ramen posters, I started to make ramen stickers with my own sticker machine. I usually use them on my personal belongings like notebook cover and back of the phone. One time, I was using my phone at the subway station. A girl standing next to me saw my ramen sticker at the back of my phone. She came up to me and we actually started talking about ramen, where's our favorite ramen shops, and so on. We eventually became friends and realized we have a few mutual friends as well.
It was a surprising experience to make a new friend through a simple ramen sticker. To me, the ramen sticker was purely an expression to show how much I love ramen noodles. I didn't realize it can become a powerful bridge to connect and attract people who love ramen as much as I do!
The Ramen Stickers
The vinyl stickers are durable, waterproof, and work great with any solid surfaces such as paper, plastic, metal, wood, ceramic, glass, and many others!
There are 5 designs for the ramen stickers. Each has their own theme and "ramen quote". Each sticker is 2"x2" in dimension, I figured that is a good size for using on most personal items.
Just ramen bowls on a sticker sheet?
I also made sticker sheets for simply delicious ramen bowls as well. I designed two versions: BLUE & VIOLET sticker sheet.
Version BLUE sticker sheet has three 1-inch ramen (Tori Paitan, Muroran Curry, Hakata ramen) and two 1.5-inch ramen stickers. (Tantanmen and Tokyo Ramen)
Version VIOLET sticker sheet has a total of six 1-inch ramen bowl stickers: Hakodate, Asahikawa, Sapporo, Shirakawa, Yokohama, and Kyoto ramen!
There are unlimited ways to use these tasty bowls! Be creative and be yourself!
12 Other Ways to Use Your Ramen Stickers
$1K + Extra adhesive strength - I want to make sure these stickers don't peel off easily after applied. Plus, it is now more durable with thicker vinyl sticker.
$2K + Glossy Finish - add an extra layer of protection from water and scratches.
$3K + UV laminated - The color will stay vibrant against UV light, which makes your stickers now completely weatherproof! You can use your stickers outdoor without worrying about the wind, the rain, or the sun!
Risks and challenges
The main challenge of this project is funding. Once this project is funded, I have already contact a local sticker printing service for a quick turnaround time. I am already familiar with packaging, shipping, and delivery process from previous successful Kickstarter projects. If you have any questions, please message me. I read my emails frequently and will usually response within the day. Thanks! :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
