Thank you for all the support you have provided LINE Creators Market in 2014.
Since submission of creators’ stickers opened this April, we have seen works from countless creators around the world. The service has since grown in scale to carry over 36,000 sets of creators’ stickers.
However, we realize that we have caused many inconveniences to our users due to slow review speeds and difficulty finding stickers as the service has grown rapidly.
