there were more letters A, E, N, R
fewer, if any, numbers
more cursive letters without glitter
actually less glitter all the way around
some red ones - true red that isn't glitter. I think I have one pack and I scrap with red all the time.
more mixed case smaller sizes
they never discontinue the mistables or raw chipboard Thickers. I love to mist and paint my own colors.
Do you have a Thicker wish list?

I love thickers as well but I wish they would add more vowels and do away with the letters that are rarely used...or only put 1. I've got so many sheets of them with all the vowels missing but all the odd letters still there.

It would be cool if there were three sheets instead of 2. Add more of all the vowels as well as t s r n l. Also I'd like some with both upper and lower case in the same package.
|Posted: 3/21/2013 4:53:59 PM|
I wish for more styles with less glitter too!
And VOWELS, many more vowels! Personally, I think they should just make packs of vowels. Then I'd feel like I get more use from my packs with consonants, lol!
And Yes, more chipboard! Love the chipboard!

Our new grandbaby that is due the end of May is going to be named Audrianna. As soon as dd told me the name they finally decided on I thought to myself "oh'man, I'm gonna use all the a's on one scrapbook page"! I think a lot of her pages will just have Audri on them!

I run out of a, e, s, t, r, l, d, c, o the most. More vowels and skip the numbers! True red, navy. Less glitter and I love the smaller sizes!

My wish list is more for some certain colors. I need some more orange and purple options. And blue. There is royal blue and pale blue. I need something in between.

-they had more true reds without glitter.
-they had more of everything without glitter (and I love glitter)
-they had more navy blue
I like the numbers. I use them a lot.

Loc: River Ridge, Louisiana
|Posted: 3/21/2013 7:41:37 PM|Oh yes, I hardly ever use the numbers, but ALWAYS run out of key letters, especially these four: a, e, s, t.
I can make l's from h's, r's from n's, d's from p's, etc. but a, e, s, and t are on their own, and run out quickly.
also agree about red and blue...a nice medium blue, not navy and without hints of green.

I'm with everyone on the reds. It's tough to find a red Thicker that will actually match the red I happen to be working with - not sure why that is.
Also - how about some cream / off-white Thickers? So many of the papers are cream/off-white based. I did get a pack of what I thought were cream, but they had way too much yellow in them. Soooo ... still looking!

...they were packaged differently. Ideally, numbers/punctuation would be sold separately. Alphabet packs could then contain more vowels & frequently-used consonants (e.g. B, C, H, L, N, R, S, T).
I love Thickers, but I wish...
....they were not stickers/did not have adhesive (since most require additional adhesive anyway) to reduce the cost per pack.
...all fonts/colors were available without glitter (i.e. offer the same style/color in both glittered & non-glittered options).
...an antique/vintage white was available to coordinate with the base color of many of the popular manufacturers' patterned papers.
...more styles were offered in saturated primary & secondary colors - especially red, blue, green, & orange.

I think the vowels and popular consonants probably goes for most letter sticker packs. Or can anyone suggest a manufacturers that gets the balance spot on?

I don't like to fix letters in the same word, so it makes it frustrating.
Maybe it's just incentive for us to buy more packs!

I agree with many of you. Definitely need better/more reds, less glitter and better (or none) adhesive. I also think that selling them with numbers and letters separately is a great idea! And the idea of selling just some of the extra, more frequently used letters separately is a great idea too! Maybe AC will see this thread....

|Posted: 3/22/2013 8:42:13 AM|
Great ideas everyone. Definitely more vowels and most-used consonants. I just had to make an R out of a P and a exclamation pt.
And I need more good brown colors (not all with glitter). I second needing more navy too. But we do need to keep glitter ones so that Glitter Girl will be happy and better able to save the world.

P.S. Also, how about AC teaming up with Oct Afternoon to come up with Thickers that match some of their paper lines? Some of their colors are a little harder to match. Maria

I love the glitter thickers!
It is funny that some people say to do away with letters that are hardly used, but my daughter's name is Vivian and usually I only get 2 Vs in a pack. So, I would hate to have less of the traditionally lesser used letters. Some packets, like Amy Tan's thickers, have tons of vowels! LOVE THAT! Yes, more vowels for sure.
I use the numbers for Project Life, so I love the numbers and would like more too.
|Posted: 3/22/2013 10:21:11 AM|
Another vote for better adhesive! Thought I don't usually have a problem with the foam ones, just the chipboard. I would also be happy to have no adhesive whatsoever if that lowered the cost. And less glitter!

|Posted: 3/22/2013 10:28:54 AM|I need more Es. My criteria for buying letter stickers is if I use all the Es spelling my name (Renee) then I skip on by no matter how cute they are. I get irritated when there are the same amount of Fs and Cs as Es. Hardly ever use those letters.
Other letters I use a lot are N, T, S, R, A. I can usually flip U for N or use Z. For A, I can cut off the long part of d or p. T and S are a little harder as is E.
Basic Grey has those little stickers with tons of those letters, but they are really small. them!

And VOWELS, many more vowels! Personally, I think they should just make packs of vowels.
That's exactly what I was going to say! Like a refill pack with the popular letters. Or just more of the common letters because I have so many unfinished packs that are useless to me unless I really put my mind to it. Which is fine sometimes, but then mostly you want to just grab a pack and go, so I'll always open the newer pack instead. Frustrating!

More smaller sizes is number one on my Thickers wish list. I think more red would be great, too!

More red with no glitter, more blues, especially medium shades. More cursive fonts, more vowels and common letters - r, s, t, l, n, m.
I do love glitter and numbers, but it's 2013, so can we have more of those numbers????
|Posted: 3/22/2013 5:07:06 PM|
They have a cute style but more fonts is always a good thing!
|Posted: 3/22/2013 6:09:33 PM|
Yes, definitely better adhesive. Wouldn't it be great if we could just buy additional vowels or single letters? Not cost effective though, I bet.
What are you looking at?
|Posted: 3/22/2013 6:22:52 PM|
... there were more vowels, for sure. And 'r', 't', and 's' letters.
