In August of 2013, I bought a flat vending machine on craigslist for $100. I went to Staples, had some of my artwork printed on paper labels, and then went home and cut them all out by hand. I sliced up some scrap chipboard, folded it into slips, filled the 50¢ pull machine with this artwork, and then casually placed it outside of my university's library. Two days later, I received word that my sticker machine had been arrested.
Ever since then, I've been (legally!) dropping the machine at local businesses and art shows. It's been featured at a plethora of places, including The Pink House Exhibition, Common Grounds, and Grandma Party, and currently resides at Falcon Bar.
Originally called "The Sticker Machine," FUNCLUB has produced over 50 unique sticker designs (now) printed on high-quality vinyl), as well as 3 successful t-shirt runs, with plans to continue to grow into other merchandise. Starting as a randomly placed sticker machine and growing into a small online shop, FUNCLUB is at it's core a passion project run on Etsy, with high hopes for the future!
