We‘re c3stoc - the CCC sticker operation center. After helping with the sticker distribution at 36c3 we had to find a solution to ensure new laptops wouldn‘t remain naked during the pandemic. During the last three years we organized remote sticker exchanges. Now it‘s time to share our learnings about exchanges and stickers!
