It all started when I read a tweet by @moleitau, which stated “don’t complain, suggest what’s better”. As time went by, I kept on revisiting this quote as it is so relevant in our current society. People are super good at complaining and nagging and do not automatically make the switch to suggesting, exploring or contributing to a possible solution.
You will get one (1) sticker mailed to you as soon as they come back from the printers.
You will get three (3) stickers, six (6) art prints and one Geek Couture Shoe print, mailed to you as soon as they come back from the printers.
The examples below are to illustrate the diverse style of each artist. They do not reflect the final design. The custom artwork will only happen (and start) in case this project is fully funded.
You’ll get a collection of digital wallpapers in various resolutions to fit the most common tablet, phone and desktop screen sizes. This wallpaper pack will contain both the quotes as well as (parts of) the created artwork.
This is a campaign to raise money to make custom stickers and art prints. I’m offering eight (8) different Kickstarter Packages including three (3) early bird sticker packages. If this campaign manages to reach it’s goal early on, I am ready to add stretch goals!!!
The art created by Caro will be added to the tiers which already contain artprints. That means that you’ll get 4 instead of 3 different prints if you backed either the €20 or €25 tier (‘the art’ or ‘gold limited edition & art’). Example work of Studio Caro Example work of Studio Caro

Invited artist #2 : Willem Pirquin (willempirquin.be, instagram)
I love stickers!!!!! and i want to create 100 in a one presentation 🙂
//The biggest challenge of this project is to finish the 100 stickers on time, I know it will be difficult, but working hard I know i will achieve it.
BTW – If we reach goal early, then I’ll do my best to expedite my orders so you can get your items in December, instead of January!!!! Fingers crossed!
I don’t currently foresee many/any challenges! However, since this is my first Kickstarter Campaign, I can’t guarantee that I won’t get blindsided by something weird and unexpected. Don’t worry though, all things considered, my top priority is YOU! I’ll make sure to keep you in the loop at every stage of this project!!
You will get three (3) stickers, and six (6) art prints mailed to you as soon as they come back from the printers.
Each vinyl sticker features a premium coating that protects them from exposure to wind, rain and sunlight.
We’ll be adding one additional illustrator into the mix when reaching €2600! : Caroline of Studio Caro. She’s totally into 3D type, and I think her style will add nicely to Willem, Geertrui and Bert’s. Caroline also operates from Antwerp, so we’re staying very local.
I want to go full transparent here. This is what I’ve based my calculations on, it’s hard to estimate print quantities – but I tried to go with a realistic estimate. Printing of the gold stickers (tbd) and the art prints (Impressa) is done in Belgium, the regular stickers are ordered through Stickermule.
Kickstarting a limited edition /make100 golden version of the “don’t complain, suggest what’s better” sticker which has been super popular in local communities. Additionally, three Belgian artists will create an illustration based on the quote – which will be produced as artprints and digital wallpapers. We’re also offering the possibility to order a stack of ‘original’ stickers.
The best part is, the art work is already completed, and the manufacturers have already been vetted and chosen!! All that’s left is for the orders to be submitted so you can get your awesome Star Wars prints as quickly as possible.
The central risk will be timing. I have worked with all suppliers before, and they are super punctual and offer high quality results. The illustrators all live within the same city, I can reach out easily and can communicate in a swift way. A secondary risk is the quality of the stickers or artwork. At this moment, I only have the design of the original sticker. The illustrators have committed to go through a series of iterations before their final artwork is done. In order to give everyone backing this a good idea of what is going on, I will share back every design iteration to the community.
i saw the “Make 100” Kickstarter plataform and it inspires me to do this work, i need a considerable time to make this project come to live, so we will put all the energies here to create a bunch of stickers for you. I hope you like it
The popularity of this first print run got me into launching it as a crowdfunding campaign. At its core, this campaign gets you a pack of 15 ‘original’ stickers – I’ve seen a lot of them on laptops or smartphones. Both ideal devices to bring into company meetings and silently spread the message.
Each art print is professionally printed with high quality ink and paper.
A set of 9 artprints containing 3 copies of 3 different re-interpretations. You’ll also get 10 classic stickers.
You will get three (3) stickers mailed to you as soon as they come back from the printers.
Thanks to this campaign awesome backer crowd, we managed to reach 3 stretch goals already! I’m exploring other ways to keep expanding this campaign, and hope to land something feasible soon.
After getting several requests for doing a large size print, I’ll be tossing in a risograph printed A3 sized poster of the quote for every backer who’s backing at €20 and above.
A pack of 5 gold stickers _and_ a set of 9 artprints (3 copies of 3 re-interpretations). You’ll also get 5 classic stickers.
Bert is an industrial designer who eats marker pens for breakfast. He’s not a ‘genuine’ illustrator, but he’s totally up for this challenge.
You will get three (3) stickers, and one (1) art print mailed to you as soon as they come back from the printers.
Note: All reward levels also include ‘the digital’ reward, containing a selection of wallpapers for tablet, phone and desktop use.

We could have run a crowdfunding campaign to just get some more prints done of the existing design. But the Kickstarter /Make100 seemed like a nice opportunity to go further!
A possible gold version, here using Zilla Slab & Gilbert typefaces.

With less than 24 hours left, I don’t have time to design up another goal. That means that if we successfully hit $700 or more, everyone will win a mystery item!!! Maybe it’ll be a sticker, or another print, or maybe a pin, who knows!!!
Sticker sheet! I’m adding an A5 sticker sheet into the mix as an additional reward at all backer tiers! On this sheet there will be one sticker of each illustrator, and if there’s space left I’ll squeeze in a couple of ‘localised versions’ of the original quote!
In 2017 I finally turned this quote into a sticker. I spread the sticker through a Belgian makerspace, and my friend Anthony has been promoting it heavily in the local community.
When the campaign reaches €2000 I’m committing to providing a nicely bundled package of design files in various formats. Documenting the fonts and listing a couple of printing resources. This should give anyone who backed at any tier level the opportunity to create her or his own version of the sticker, or re-use the digital version where ever you’d like.
Geertrui is a lettering wizard. When this campaign gets funded – she’ll make a supercustom version of the ‘don’t complain’ quote.

A riso print has a very special aesthetic to it, which makes it stand out. Larger prints would be ideal to pin in meeting rooms or on office walls.
As part of this campaign, I want to take the chance to give back to the local community as much as possible. Therefore I invited 3 local (Antwerp based) artists to create something special based on the original quote. The artworks will be printed in A5 size on high quality 300g focuscard paper. They will also be made available as mobile and desktop wallpapers in various sizes.
