Sticky Jewelry opened for business in the Fall of 2000. Our first product was an engravable photo pin that could hold a Polaroid i-Zone photo. The Polaroid i-Zone camera had just made its debut, and our intention was to create jewelry and accessories that could hold the small-format photos it
The original Polaroid i-Zone film had a peel-off sticky back, so you could 'stick' the photo anywhere you wanted. We had considered several names for the company, but ‘Sticky’ seemed to fit most closely. That's how we got the name Sticky Jewelry, and StickyJ Medical ID.
Well, the i-Zone camera didn't turn out to be as successful as Polaroid had hoped. It didn’t keep Polaroid from going into bankruptcy, and it didn’t result in that many orders for our i-Zone accessories. So, we quickly shifted our focus away from photo pins and concentrated instead on unique, personalized jewelry, including fashion-conscious medical id bracelets and what eventually became the most popular line of medical id bracelets for children.
Sticky Jewelry quickly became one of the top personalized jewelry resellers on the internet, combining quality and affordability with fast turnaround, flat-rate shipping, unbeatable customer service, and a 90-day money back guarantee. Our customers tell us that their buying experience was clearly superior to what they’d experienced elsewhere, that they would definitely shop with us again, and that they often recommend us to others.
We’re delighted to get that kind of feedback. Pleasing customers is what business is all about, and we intend to never lose sight of that goal.
But, what about the name? Well, as our medical ID business continues to grow, we are often asked about the name Sticky Jewelry. Some have suggested that our name should be more dignified. Others have told us that they were fearful about purchasing from a company named StickyJ. We’re glad, by the way, that they overcame their fear.
The topic of changing our name came up often at management meetings during the early years, but so many customers have now come to know us by our unusual name that changing it seems to pose a bigger problem than keeping it. StickyJ is now a registered trademark and a highly regarded brand. It also seems to help people remember who we are, and they do keep coming back.
If you are not yet a Sticky Jewelry customer, we hope that you will come and shop with us and discover for yourself that although our name is a bit strange, the custom medical jewelry we sell and the service we deliver is truly exceptional.
If you had a good shopping experience at StickyJ Medical ID, we hope you will visit our other store, Thoughtful Impressions, where you'll find a wide selection of personalized jewelry and gifts, all of which can be custom engraved.
