About Message Stickers
With Message Stickers, users can write any message they want in the preset caption space and create their own unique LINE stickers. The first batch of Message Stickers to go on sale will feature popular characters from franchises such as Hello Kitty, Snoopy, Usamaru, Toy Story, Doraemon, BT21, and more.
Note: Creators can now also submit their Message Stickers on LINE Creators Market for review.
In addition to names and standard greetings, users can now have fun writing longer messages and coming up with phrases for different stickers. This makes them a great card substitute when sending congratulations to someone on their anniversary or wishing them a happy birthday, while students could also use them to introduce themselves to new classmates in LINE group chats. Users are free to use the stickers as they are or edit messages for individual stickers as many times as they like.
