I consider Lameka an innovator in the sticker business, so when she gave me a few minutes of her time for a cyber interview, I jumped at the chance. Lameka’s dolls are giving life to the planner sticker game.

PSD: Do you know of anyone else making stickers the same way you do, portraying different ethnicities, body types and spiritual practices?

Lameka: At the moment, I do not. I am sure someone will decide to do it soon as it is more popular.

Oh, but I have noticed many jumping on the bandwagon! It think it is pretty awesome that other shops recognize Lameka’s success as something to emulate.

“I have friends of all races, so that is the reason why I design them for different types. I never want to leave my friends out.”

The planner community is still relatively small, but hugely diverse. I currently follow planner accounts in Japanese, German, Spanish, English and Italian. I just shipped to my giveaway winner in South Africa.

When I first noticed the Pink Bow Ties brand, the stickers were modeled after Lameka’s friends. Since the time of this cyber interview, Pink Bow Ties has begun offering custom dolls where you can get one made from your personal photograph. There is currently a waiting bow ties stickers amber

The Pink Bow Ties brand has been well received by the planner community.

Lameka: The fact that someone loves pens just like me or gets excited about pretty notebooks. I also love that someone likes my products and wants them on their planner pages.

*Pink Bow Ties offers digital images and clear stamps in addition to the dolls. Lameka hopes to expand the brand soon to include tee shirts as well.

*EDIT: Congratulations to Lameka on her launch at Michaels, December 2019!
