I first came across these Lego Decal and sticker sets from Brickstix when I was searching for a Brickjournal back issue some time ago.
At the time I was amazed by the sets, for their quality, range and ingenuity. It’s one of those concepts that as a tryhard-entrepreneur you wonder why you didn’t think about the idea first.
I mean, custom removable stickers and decals for Lego, we all came up with that idea as a child…so I guess it makes sense that the idea for Brickstix was conceived by a kid and then made into a multi award-winning company!
Meet Greyson McLean, a 12 year old with a passion for Lego and a mind like a steel trap. At 9 years old he came up with the idea of removable Lego stickers to use over and over again.
Like most kids Greyson was frustrated with the official Lego stickers that stuck like glue, and when they did eventually come off they left an icky sediment behind.
After a bit of research, Brickstix was born (with a little help from his mother).
Greyson does all the design drawings and sends them to a designer (an uncle) who refines them for the stickers. There are 6 varieties of Brickstix packets on different themes, and each packet has two sheets of stickers in each. There is also a Mod range of stickers for creating comics and stop motion animation.

The folks over at TwoMorrows, the brand behind the awesome Lego magazine Brick Journal, are having a sale.
Brick Journal is one of the most well-read items in my house. My kids flick through them for weeks after they arrive in the mail and they are often the first resources to come out if inspiration is required.
They also sell BrickStix which are clear reusable, removable and restickable cling decals for LEGO. I must admit I just discovered these stickers today but I will certainly be adding them to my next order – what a great idea!
The discounts offered below are wonderful if you are missing some back issues or have yet to try the magazine for yourself or your family. TwoMorrows posts overseas as well as within the US.
