It is becoming increasingly difficult for celebrities to find a haven or safe zone from the paparazzi and a cell phone bearing public eager for a photo. Quick or discreet photos can now be instantly published and spread around the world. At Websticker we’ve seen an increase in orders for simple sheets of removable stickers being used to block cameras on cell phones at exclusive clubs and special events. Paired with a code-of-conduct contracts signed upon arrival, branded stickers are applied by staff members to create camera free zones. Removal of the stickers or any attempts at photography result in dismissal from the club or event.
Websticker client, San Vicente Bungalows alerted us to the need and market for this new privacy tool. We had been producing sticker sheets of webcam covers for phones and laptops to block spying eyes. The San Vicente Bungalows were the first to come to us for branded stickers to block the cameras on the other side of the phone. They wanted to block photos from being taken at all while allowing guests to keep their phones for other purposes. An excellent article in the New York Times by Guy Trebay explores Hollywood’s New Clubhouse – Jeff Klein’s latest hotel project protects celebrities and power brokers with a ban on cameraphones.
At Websticker we’re here to help with any camera blocking sticker solutions. Whether used for personal security or celebrity privacy this tool also doubles as a low-cost promotional product branded with the logos of clubs or organizations.
