These stickers are from Washi Club's 遊便切手 (Yubin Kitte) series stickers. This is read "Yubin Kitte", the same sound of 郵便切手 which means postage stamps, but they play on Chinese letters that 遊便切手 literally meaning "play letter postage stamp" and 郵便切手 literary meaning "mail service postage stamp." In fact, each sticker has wavy die-cut edge same as a postage stamp, and the shape is in rectangle just like most postage stamps in Japan.
The motto of Washi Club established in 1970 in the historical city of Kyoto is 温故知新 (onko chishin) which means an attempt to discover new things by studying the past scrutiny of the old.
