Star Trek Stickers

Some collectors include stickers as part of their collection. Since stickers came with earlier card sets and many are card sized and/or shaped, they are a natural outgrowth of a card collection. This chapter deals with sticker sets or single stickers. Stickers that are part of a card set are covered with their respective cards descriptions.

Morris Stickers

Peninsula Vending Company put out a set of stickers. I found this packaging version of them that includes two stickers and a non-Trek sticker/tattoo.

 

Peninsula Vending Company Stickers

 

 

Released by Peninsula Vending Company/Cal Print & Graphics in 1996, this is a set of 28 trading card sized stickers, singly packed flat in cardboard to be distributed in vending machines. There were sightings of them actually IN vending machines in Australia. Dealers in the US were able to order directly from the company. The set has bright, crisp images and is bordered with a bright sparkle border.
There is also a variation in the border style where it looks more cubed then sparkley. This cubed set is more difficult to put together as they appear much less frequently, possibly about 1 for every 10 sparkle sets. Three of the borders have a red color rather than a gold color. The red borders are the same three images in both the sparkle and cubed sets.
A retail type product is also available, consisting of 10 4×6 stickers, packed in clamshells and placed on hooks in the stores. The images used are the same as are found in the smaller version. A retail packaging version of them includes two stickers and a non-Trek sticker/tattoo.

Starfest 2000 Sticker Set

 

Sample Starcon Stickers
These very small (1″x 1 1/2″) stickers were found at the Starcon convention in Colorado in the fall of 2000. Convention goers had to visit several tables and areas of the shows to get all the stickers. This same company has created several trading card sized cards at earlier conventions.

O Caminho das Estrelas Stickers

 

Released by Edições Acrópole, Lda (Portugal) in 1997 or 1998. A 460 white-bordered TOS stickers set with a 36 page album. It  covered the several episodes from the first two seasons of TOS. The back of sticker has a simple typed sticker number in the middle of the card. Stickers measure 2×2 3/4.

Panini Stickers

 

Panini put out several sticker sets over the years from TOS and TNG in several countries..

The first set was released in Germany, it consisted of 400 third season episode stickers with a 45 page album. The stickers measure 1 7/8″ x 2 3/4″.

The first TNG set was released in several foreign markets, starting with Italy in 1978 . Packs include 5 stickers and came 100 packs to the box. There is 240 in the set. The series follows several first season episodes. It was also marketed for several different overseas countries. Backs state “Collect these stickers in the album available from your local shop” in several different languages. The set was released in the US briefly, but pulled due to licensing issues. The stickers measure 2″x 2 1/2″.
A Paramount catalog from 1987 offers an uncut sheet of the Panini stickers for sale.

In 1992, Panini sent out to retailers a poly-bagged binder, order form, sticker packet, some scratch-offtickets and uncut sheet of 6 stickers.These stickers have a 1992 copyright and are use red text. The sheet that accompanied to the poly-bag was in Hebrew, though the album itself lists a few different currencies, so may have had wider distribution. The Hebrew version also came with scratch-off tickets(1 7/8 by 3 1/8) for a contest with prizes listed on an insert sheet. This version also came in packets and a box, similar to the 1987 version. There is also a Portugese (from Brazil) version of the set, but little is known about it at this time.  There are 240 stickers in the set, which measure 2″x 2 1/2″.

In 1992, a US set was finally *officially* released by Baio and Company. An album and complete set of stickers on uncut sheets of 10 stickers was sold in US retail outlets. Text color is black. (Although the set retains the Panini name and copyright).

Swizzlers Stickers

 

Swizzels Refreshers Flavored Fizzy Sweets candy offered a set of 54 1 ½ by 1 1/4 color STTMP stickers to collectors in the UK in 1979. The 54 stickers can be arranged on a large poster that has an image of Kirk, Spock and Ilia and various ST:TMP ships Uncut strips of the sticker sets can be found and are usually in fairly good condition. The stickers measure 1 1/2″x 1 1/4″.

Time Line Studio Stickers

 

  The TimeLine Studios sticker set is made up of promotional stickers for the artist’s work. The artist, Sonia Hillios, is the one who did some of the Master Series cards and who has been doing the ST novel covers. They were available around 1991 and there is an unknown number of stickers in the set. Sizes varies from 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 to 2 1/4 x 3 1/4.

ST:TMP Vending Stickers

 

This is a set of 4 ST:TMP stickers found either flat or balled up in small capsules and released in vending machines. The stickers were intended to be put on glassware or used as a window decal. Popular thinking is that the flat stickers were from Burger King. However, a look at the marketing list for that year shows that Burger King did NOT have a license to offer Trek merchandise, but Avia did and it fits their style. Likely, the flat stickers were leftover stickers that never made it into balls or Avia may have worked with Burger King in a promotional. There are both red and black versions of the back text. They measure 2 x 3 1/8.

Walls Ice Cream ST II and III Stickers

 

Released in NZ by Richer Walls and packaged with ice cream, this 6-sticker also came with a promotional poster. The ST III set. They measure 2 1/2 x 3 1/4. The ST III set is fairly rare.

New Zealand Sticker Set

 

  These stickers were given out at a retail outlet called The Warehouse in New Zealand with a purchase of a ST item. They were part of a contest for a trip to LA. Each sticker has the number 3 on it. Released in 1994, they measure 4×6.

General Mills TNG Stickers

 

 

Backs
In one of the first TNG promotionals, General Mills offered a set of 6 stickers in 1987. There was a game piece in each box of cereal and peeling it a part revealed two pieces; one told you if you had won, the other was the sticker. Different accounts put different ones as being harder to find than others. Riker, however, appears to be the easiest. One collector reports a variation in the color of Wesley’s shirt, brown and green. One note, there are both English and French versions of the stickers seen in the text on the outside of the sticker pieces. So, the true geek will want both the US set and the Canadian set. Measures 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 (game piece is 2 1/2 x 3 1/4).

Limit Magazine Mini-Stickers

 

Released in 1996. Sheet#1 is on very thin paper and seperated with perforations. Sheet#2 appears to be from the outside of the magazine and is on thicker stock and the stickers peel off a backing. Sticker #3 is on thin stock and peels from the backing.   Sheet #1 measures 5×14, sheet #2 is 6 1/2×10 #3 is 4 1/2 by 5 /12.

Christie’s Sticker Set

 

These stickers were packed with Star Trek cookies and were sealed in a cello package in 1992. The backs are blank. A. H. Prismatic used these same holographic images in a multitude of products like keychains, uncut sheets and more. To be sure they are from Christie’s, make sure they are still sealed in the cello wraps (and look for telltale crumbs in the folds….!!!!  Stickers measure 2×2.

Oatfield Stickers

 

These holographic stickers came inside Oatfield Sherbert Filled Fruit Flavour Drops wrappers and were released by Wm McKinney & Sons in Irelan . They were to be applied to a small poster. Like the Fleer gum stickers from Germany, a box usually offered only 4 or 5 of the same numbers, making it difficult to complete a full set. Some uncut strips of stickers also made it into the marketplace. Both the outer and inner wrappers of the candies had Trek images. Released in 1997.

Fritt Stickers

 

Fritt stickers is a series of card sized stickers in Germany and inserted into a Starbust type candy from 1995 to 1998. Since these trading card sized stickers are wrapped around a candy package, wrinkles and bends are common. The 1995 and 1996 sets contain images from all 4 Trek series. The 1997 set has a cartoon bubble with text added to the stickers. The l998 has the cartoon bubble and a small cartoon character on each sticker. Some people prefer to collect the whole wrapper and others want to trim them down to fit into 9 pocket pages. The outside of the package has an identifying sticker to let you know there is a ST sticker within. The images include USS Voyager, the TOS Enterprise and the cartoon character mentioned before.
