Was wondering if the transparent Picade stickers are in there? The ones shown on the Picade Bilge Tank Video. They are clear with white markings. Was wanting to use them with my custom Pirate Radio build. I’m using the mini arcade buttons for volume up down etc. My buttons are all black so having the white marking right on the buttons would be ideal. I’m thinking the transparent ones only come with the new Picade though?
I believe Phil got you sorted out with some? :-)
Yes, he contacted me via PM. Thanks.
For those that may be wondering, like I was. Those clear stickers used on the new Picade aren’t in the Super Sticker Collection. Just about every other one Pimoroni is the purveyor of is though, from the looks of it. Mine are in transit. It will be a week or more before they get to this side of the big pond and have a look see at what you get.
They do come in the sticker selection that comes with Picade though, which is basically the Super Sticker Selection plus the Picade button stickers. :-)
Thats where I saw them, in the Picade Bilge Tank Video. Thats where I thought, those would be cool on my custom Pirate Radio install. My case is a black wooden subwoofer box. I have mini arcade button on top, all black. I know which one is which but having the white logo’s on them would be that extra cool touch.
Just got them, here is a picture of what you get. The white sheet at the bottom is the Picade stickers. Its white lettering on clear stickers with a white backing paper. You have to hold them up to the light at an angle to see what they say. Or peel them off the backing.

How are they working out for you? I’ve found they don’t seem to stay stuck down on the buttons…
I only just put a couple on, they haven’t come off yet. I only ever hit the power button and maybe volume up down. I’m using some of mine on a custom Pirate Radio build. I had to cut mine down to a smaller diameter to fit my “mini” arcade buttons. So far I’ve only used 4 of the stickers. Volume up down, Power, and the X for shutdown. The rest don’t really match up with my other buttons. Channel up down and pause. It didn’t work out quit as I had planned. I didn’t know what was on the stickers before I got them though. Seemed like a really good idea at the time.
If they do come off I may switch to some of the other stickers in the pack, There is one sheet that will do all my buttons, and are nice and small with no trimming required. I may just stick them on my case next to the buttons. If I have room.

I haven’t taken a picture with the stickers on it yet.
Mine are starting to lift a bit at the edges. Might be my own fault though for not cleaning the buttons with alcohol before applying the stickers. I wiped them down with tissue paper by maybe there was still some residue on them from my fingers pressing them etc. I also had some overhang on one or two buttons too that likely didn’t help. I had to cut them down to a smaller diameter to fit in my “mini” arcade buttons.
I do like the look of the white lettering on my all black buttons. =)
