General description

DIODE is a sticker brand focused primarily on anime-related content, spawned out of a passion for anime, art, and creativity. Nearly all of DIODE's growth has come directly from the anime sticker communities present on Facebook and Instagram. Stickers are created using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and printed by a third-party printing company, before being shipped to me, and sent out from there. The average price of printing a single DIODE sticker is $1.25, whereas they can be sold for anywhere from $5-8 dollars allowing for a large profit margin. By simply using tags on Instagram and posting in an anime sticker group on Facebook, I have been able to grow DIODE to nearly one thousand followers with just 4 sticker releases. Brand growth is relatively free, and relies largely on simply taking product photos and posting them on social media. DIODE has around a dozen recurring customers, but brand loyalty is largely dependent on sticker design quality and the choice of anime to reference.

Unfortunately, I have become too busy to focus on DIODE Brand and the stickers that my customers have come to love, but would be willing to pass the brand and trade secrets on to someone committed to the quality and engagement I've sought to reach.
