Think you know stickers? Chibitronics makes stickers like you’ve never seen before.
These ingenious stickers bring electronics and crafts together and the results are spectactular.
Solder-free and adhesive-backed, these stickers are flexible circuit pieces you can use to really light up cards, drawings and scrapbooks.
The secret behind these magical stickers is the conductive adhesive that connects the sticker to the circuit.They stick to any surface – paper, fabric, glass. Go on, I dare you to be inventive.
Create the circuit and make it part of a drawing or highlight some points in your notes. Kids will love this novelty and use it over and over again. And these creative stickers are just as fun for kids as they are for adults.
