sticker price

noun

North American
the advertised retail price of an article.


sticker album is a book in which a person sticks collectable stickers in designated sections. Sticker album themes can be sporting events such as the FIFA World Cup or TV shows like Doctor Who.
The stickers are usually sold in blind packs, so the purchaser does not know which bumper stickers they are buying. This can mean a collector has to buy huge numbers of packs to complete their collection. Collectors get around this problem by swapping or selling their spares with other collectors. Panini, the largest producer of sticker books insist that they produce equal numbers of all the stickers in every collection. It has become increasing common to swap stickers banner and trading cards online on websites such as www.stickerpoints.com this quickly enables traders to complete the albums without the expense of buying multiple duplicate cards and stickers.
