BUBBLEDOG'S Scratch 'n Sniff Sticker Collection

3m Company produced many scratch and sniff stickers during the eighties, including many stickers for other sticker companies.  The fun part about collecting these stickers is that no one knows definitively how many of the different stickers/scents exist.  They also seem to have been made for a variety of reasons, so designs vary greatly.  I've sorted this first set of stickers based on their design and the fact that they only say "scratch 'n sniff" on the sticker.  Each are 1.25" in diameter.

These 3m stickers each say "scratch and sniff" as well as another phrase identifying the scent of the sticker.  I have seen some of these on sticker rolls and others used on products such as magnets and keychains.

The natural gas sticker was printed on both matte and glossy stock and thedesigns are slightly different

These 3m stickers each feature an anthropomorphic food character much like the Trend Stinky Stickers that were very popular in the early eighties. I only know of eleven scents... though eleven seems like a really odd number... there has got to be one more out there.

3m Company produced a variety of die-cut stickers that varied in design, scent, and size.  Many of these were available in retail stores from the roll and others were distributed to teachers in special educational kits.  There may be other 3M die-cut stickers available that I have not listed.  Due to the big difference in sizes, these scans are shown at 100%.

In 1984, 3M released stickers under their Murple brand.  There were several types of stickers printed, including these 1.25" rounded square stickers.  Each scent had two different backgrounds.
