Does anybody know where you can get fun viola stickers for cases? The only place I have found thus far is Redbubble, but they are from all different stores and shipping would be crazy.
My 13yo, who has pretty much completely transitioned to viola at this point, finally got her new case and needs some great stickers. For those of you who remember the saga of her struggling this year (with violin and life in general), she is doing so much better with viola. Just got back from a month at Center Stage Strings and is doing amazing!
Don't know if you can still get them but atone time you could buy sheets of circular stickers, which you could then put your own designs on, and print on your home printer, or of you can no longer get them I am sure there must be online sites for designing your own.
Alto Clef Gifts has some stickers, and lots of other fun viola themed stuff.
Ron's got the right idea. Printable Avery labels. Trouble is that the printed surface is not always as durable as a sticker. Have you tried typing "custom printable stickers" into Google?
Recommend Etsy.com search. Not too expensive, and all kinds of stickers available, including specific for viola.
Andrew, that site is great! Thank you so much! I will check out the other recommendations as well.
Hey, I'm glad your daughter is doing much better. I know this is unrelated to your stickers query, but is she liking the viola better because the youth scene isn't quite as competitive and such? Does she have aspirations to become a professional musician? I know this is hard to say at her age. (If you don't want to answer, that's fine).
Ella, thanks for asking! She has very quickly had a lot of success with the viola, which has given her a lot of confidence. She was accepted into all the summer programs she applied for, as well as the advanced pre-college program here, and the top youth orchestra in the city (though she decided not to continue with that). All of that gave her quite a boost -- it was really nice for her to feel valued and wanted.
That's good to hear, thanks for the info. I totally see the whole "being more valued and feeling more confident" part, since there's just fewer violists out there, and the fact that her brother seems to be much more advanced than average adds an interesting situation to the mix. As a fairly high level amateur who has always loved (and continues to love) playing both violin and viola and cannot easily fathom giving up one over the other, as well as being a decent pianist, I do have a bit of a hard time deeply relating to those who are having to choose one instrument over another when they might like both a lot kinda thing. And yeah, the best thing to do is definitely to play for the joy of it and let her explore her options.
Stickers are the kind of thing you pick up for a dollar from the hip craft / souvenir shops.
I received a "Got Viola?" sticker from viola-strings.com with a strings order. It may be worth contacting them to see if they still have stickers like that.
