The collecting and trading of Joy reflective stickers is a hobby deeply ingrained in the mining communities, especially in Australia and the United States. Thousands of miners and their families and friends carefully collect and catalog their stickers. What started as filling a need for reflective material on a miner's helmet has grown in to one of the most popular hobbies in the mining community and it seems that the Joy stickers have become the preferred sticker for most collectors. While there has never been a true count of all the different stickers issued by Joy, some say thier collections are pushing 3,000 different Joy stickers.
Stickers have been issued to commemorate the introduction of new machines, to promote specific Joy facilities, services or aftermarket products like gears and chain products. Stickers have been produced to celebrate the accomplishments of Joy's equipment or the production accomplishments of our customers.
