Circuit Stickers

by Chibitronics

Circuit Stickers are peel-and-stick electronics for crafting circuits. Use them to add electronics to any sticker-friendly surface: paper, fabric, plastic, the sky's the limit!

Update 6

Dear backers!

It’s time for another update from the chibitronics crew. We’re rapidly approaching our promised ship date, and we’re happy to report that we are exactly on target with our plan to-date.

This week, we received our first complete samples of the Starter Kit. It’s looking good, so we’re going to commence with mass production.

This is also the first sneak peek of the final Circuit Sticker Sketchbook. During the campaign, we had only digitally printed and hand-bound copies to show. However, the final version of the book is full-custom book, with a solid 92 pages of fun and educational material, and features a spiral-binding for lay-flat ease of crafting.

The book also has a convenient pouch in the back cover, which is used to hold your extra Z-tape and black conductive plastic swatches.

You can download a full electronic copy of the book for free at this link Feel free to share the book with your friends, and remind them that they can still pre-order circuit stickers at the Crowd Supply website!

More advanced stickers, such as the effects and the sensors, are also coming along. All the material is staged at the factory, and we’re working hard on developing test fixtures to make the automated production of the stickers more efficient.

Finally, we’d like to share with you a sneak-peek of the touch sensor functionality we’re developing for the microcontroller sticker.

A program very similar to this will be pre-programmed into your microcontroller sticker, so it’s usable out of the box. Advanced users who want to write their own programs can do so using Arduino software, the attiny library, and a separate programmer such as the AVRISP-MKII (not included as part of the sensor kit).

We’re looking forward to getting mass production spun-up on your microcontroller and effects stickers soon.

Thanks again for your continued support!

Love to Code - Chibi Chip Starter Kit

The Love to Code Creative Coding Kit is a fun, friendly and new way to engage with coding. Includes the 150-page book printed in full color, a Chibi Chip pre-mounted in a Chibi Clip, a programming cable, 2 rolls of copper tape, 36 white LED stickers, 64 conductive fabric patches, a stencil for sketching component outlines, and a Chibi Book powered ring binder (batteries not included – requires 3 AA batteries).


STEM Starter Kit

Everything you need to get started with circuit stickers: 6 white LED stickers, 2 each of red, yellow, and blue LED stickers, 1 roll of copper tape (5 meters), 2 CR2032 coin cell batteries, 2 small binder clips, 1 copy of the "Circuit Sticker Sketchbook"


Effects add-on

Four effects stickers so you can add blink, fade, twinkle and heartbeat effects to your projects!


Conductive Fabric Tape Swatches

Get 64 swatches of conductive fabric tape, pre-cut to 0.2"x0.6" (5mmx15mm) patches for your projects. It's a tiny bridge of durable conductive fabric with a highly conductive adhesive on one side. Use it to patch gaps in copper tape, make T-junctions, build live hinges, or connect to our Love to Code products in a semi-permanent fashion.


Chibi Clip Accessory

An essential companion to the Chibi Chip, the Clip enables rapid testing and re-use of the Chip. With the Clip, attaching (and detaching) your Chip to circuits built on paper is as easy as using a clothespin.


Tropical LED Mega Pack - Limited Edition

A set of 10 each of green, orange, and purple LED stickers (30 total).


White LED Mega Pack

A set of 30 white LED stickers.

White LEDs


RYB LED Mega Pack

A set of 10 each red, yellow, and blue LED stickers.



Classroom Pack

The Classroom Pack is a class pack for a class size of 30. With 90 circuit stickers (all white, or RYB) and 90 feet of copper tape, educators can conduct several projects per student.


Copper Tape add-on

One roll of copper tape 5mm (0.2 inch) wide x 5m (16.4 foot) long.


Z-tape add-on

One strip of Z-tape, 2” wide x 5” long.


Circuit Sticker Sketchbook - English

A copy of the Circuit Sticker Sketchbook in English, perfect for teachers who want to share the Starter Kit with more than one student.
