Since 2014, we have been distributing stickers featuring artwork from local artists of all kinds (designers, illustrators, writers, poets, photographers, etc). These stickers are available to purchase from repurposed sticker vending machines housed at various locations throughout North Dakota.
To date, we have launched eight series of stickers, collectively featuring over 50 regional artists, who together have contributed over 240 works of art. Over 10,000 stickers have been dispensed via five machines at five locations (Unglued, Office Sign Company, and Drekker Brewing in Fargo, Rhythm Records in Bismarck, and Half Brothers in Grand Forks). Past and current contributing artists can be found under the Artists section.
All ages take part in the thrill of collecting these artist stickers, which are randomly inserted in each machine, leaving recipients unaware which sticker they'll receive. Golden tickets are also randomly inserted and can be redeemed for various Albino Buffalo merchandise.
This is a self-funded project and all the profits go back into making this project sustainable with each series release. This project would not be possible without receiving an initial grant from The Arts Partnership. Our awesome stickers are created by the good people at Office Sign Company. We thank all these organizations immensely for believing in this project!
Albino Buffalo is owned and operated by Jeff Knight, owner and designer at Cereal, a creative design and branding studio, and continues to be run by him and an amazing team of volunteer friends.
