With the Tucson weather already hitting triple digits, it’s more important than ever to stay hydrated through this dry heat. So whether you’re stopping by the grocery store or spending a day by the pool, don’t forget to bring the best summer companion with you wherever you go — a reusable water bottle.

And what better way to decorate your water bottle than with Tucson-themed stickers? You’re right, #ThisIsTucson reader. There is no better way. 

Here’s a list of local sticker makers and shops to get your Tucson sticker fix this summer:

Aall Forms of Life

Aall Forms of Life is run by local illustrator and wildlife biologist Nathalie Aall. Aall's work combines scientific illustration with a love of the Sonoran Desert and all of its inhabitants. Check out the cutest javelina sticker!

Annotated Audrey

Annotated Audrey has plenty of desert, Tucson and Arizona-themed stickers, including stickers that feature saguaros and wildflowers. There's even a sticker of a desert scene that says “fueled by monsoon magic.” Plus, holographic stickers!

Brushes and Boots

If you’re looking for more than Tucson landmark stickers, some local artists and sticker makers focus on the beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Brushes and Boots is one of those artists, with stickers including desert marigold, ocotillo and canyon morning glory stickers.

Cactus Clouds Art

There are plenty of saguaro and desert flora stickers to choose from at Cactus Clouds Art. We love the “Set the oven to dry heat” and the "Tucson basin mountain range compass" stickers.

CREAM Design and Print

This local print shop has a few Tucson-themed stickers to choose from, including the “Ugly but Honest” desert critters sticker and the “Protect the Sonoran Desert Toad” sticker. Keep in mind that CREAM’s stickers run on the larger side, so they’ll take up a larger portion of your water bottle!
