Steph stole the show at Sensory Ignite (a new addition to Ignite Peoria) with her well-thought out setup and beautiful collection of original artwork. She displayed her entire collection of stickers for sale alongside original paintings and handmade jewelry.
Steph’s Stickers’ mission is to spread kindness, so Steph and her mom, Barbie, came up with the perfect way to spread the message. They had a box where visitors to the table could draw a small slip of paper stating a prize they’d receive. Prizes included a stuffed Minnie Mouse, stickers, playing cards, bubbles, and coloring books. Steph brought many smiles to the faces of the children that stopped by as she handed over their prizes. Steph connected with so many attendees of Sensory Ignite through her prize box, sharing her business cards, and selling her art.
If you aren’t familiar with Steph’s story, take a moment to read it on our website or in our previous blog post. It’s a heartwarming and memorable one that Lettering Works loves to be a small part of. WMBD, Meanwhile Back in Peoria, and the Greg and Dan Show featured Steph’s Stickers upon its launch to recognize and celebrate Steph’s advocacy for all in the autism community and truly anyone with any form of disability.
The full Steph’s Stickers crew got matching purple t-shirts, produced locally by Lost Art Design + Print in Junction City, to celebrate Steph’s participation in the all-day event. Steph previously sold her stickers at Lettering Works’ Third Anniversary Ribbon Cutting, but Sensory Ignite was her first solo event. A couple new opportunities are already on the horizon. You may see Steph at more events like Sensory Ignite or her stickers popping up in gift shops soon, as she was approached by three individuals with new opportunities. In the meantime, you can shop the full sticker collection right here on the Lettering Works website:
