Yay – we are open in July! A break from our hiatus. Let's try this!

Temporarily open again throughout July to slowly test and tweak our new Lyon-based warehouse. After a period of temporary hiatus, closing the online boutique for some time and merely displaying a Hiatus Maintenance Mode, we are trying to tweak Stereohype's operation with new shipping from the EU.

So please note – unless otherwise agreed prior to wholesale, contributor and larger orders – we will from now on ship from Lyon, France. To avoid Brexit shenanigans we can arrange for larger orders to UK stockists for example to be shipped directly from our UK-based badge maker. Our core clientele is based throughout the EU however and they all benefit from the new shipping costs.

Stereohype Temporarily Closed /// Hiatus Maintenance Mode HIATUS

Stereohype is currently in Maintenance Mode. We are moving and are carefully considering options and possibilities to also operate smoothly from a new EU-based branch going forward.

We apologise that we had to close our online boutique in the process. For now – temporarily. Please follow our journey and next adventures on Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter, Threads and LinkedIn where we will keep you in the loop about it all.

You can still reach us by email or via our social media channels.

Take care and best wishes,

We therefore decided to extend the call for entries until the end of 22 September. Thank you to all the participants who already sent in their entries!

Illustrators' Fair, Summer 2022A Big THANK YOU for everybody who managed to join us yesterday at our illustrators' Fair Stereohype stand. It was such a pleasure to finally observe customers browse our button badges. The sound. The interaction. The chats. We missed that. Back to being an online shop now. I hope you will still enjoy browsing our collection – even if you find Music- or Cat-themed badges so much easier and faster online… ;) Big thanks to Josh – our first-time Stereohype assistant for the day. There are a few more snapshots over at our @stereohype Instagram feed.
