Golden Age of WordCamps: Milano and Sacramento 2016


Sticker sheets and custom die cut stickers are on the road all around the world this weekend, with WordCamps in California and in Italy (plus our Startup Weekends on three continents!). Let’s head to Europe first and then cruise home to the USA and Golden State. But before we go, we want to give a big thanks to all of our organizers for their work leading up to the weekend, and we hope for our attendees nothing but learning and enjoyment.

WordCamp Milano 2016

It’s exciting to send sticker sheets to WordCamp Milano 2016 because they using bold color treatments that make for standout individual tear-offs on their sheet. We are really digging on the kaleidoscopic designs for the WordPress logos, and one look at the elegant take on the Renaissance skyline of Milano makes it clear that the golden age of art lives on today with this community as they gather to celebrate all things WordPress.

They’ll have two tracks that they’ve dubbed Matter and Elasticity, which groups sessions into developer and design topic area. And on Friday, October 21 WordCamp Milan hosts the third Contributor Italian Day, a day dedicated to group work on the codebase for As at other WordCamps around the world, Contributor Day is not only for those who write code: There are several teams to be able to contribute with different skills.

WordCamp Sacramento 2016


Speaking of a golden age, we’re rushing west to WordCamp Sacramento 2016, where web enthusiasts will be taking over the Harper Alumni Center at Sacramento State University for an informal, volunteer-run, two-day conference focused on everything WordPress. They are sporting a custom die cut sticker with a pick and shovel (when there’s a gold rush, it’s a good time to be in the pick and shovel business, as the old saying goes) on a black background with golden-tinged text. Totally on brand for the event and for the location.

Whether you’re brand new to WordPress, you use it casually, or you’re a seasoned professional, there is something for everyone at every skill level. So if you are in northern California, swing through the capital city for some WordPress. Kudos to the organizing team for pulling together all of the gold-branded elements and getting sponsors and sessions and speakers lined up.

Startup Weekends on Three Continents: Cordoba, Pavia and Villahermosa


We are traveling the globe today for Startup Weekends in three different continents. We start in Cordoba, Argentina, then head north to Villahermosa, Mexico and finish in Pavia, Italy. We’re extremely proud to be welcoming our friends in Argentina, as this is a new country for our international shipping options.

What’s most exciting about these startup sponsorships for us here in the home office of Colorado is that we’ve been with Techstars since back in the day, and we’re entrepreneurial by nature here in Colorado. When these communities congregate and innovate, we know that not only is our brand getting repped by some of the best and brightest, but we see that there is real change going on in these business communities. And of course, we just love the sticky promotional products that we get to ship to our business-building events around the world.

So let’s give a big, hearty thanks to our dedicated organizers, and our wish for those in attendance is that they learn, grow and network all weekend–and come away with a tangible product that produces impact. You can follow the action on Twitter all weekend long on their feeds and hashtags.

Startup Weekend Cordoba 2016


Welcome Startup Weekend Cordoba 2016 to the club! This is a brand new location for us, and their sticker takes the classic Startup Weekend beaker and turns it into a patriotic display with the outline of the iconic Argentine flag that represent a blue sky parting to reveal white clouds. With a custom shape outlining the entire design and a big pop of color with green lettering, this sticker will make an impact. We wish our friends in the Southern Hemisphere a fun-filled and productive weekend of creating new business ideas.

Startup Weekend Villahermosa 2016


Next we are heading to North America and Mexico’s Tabasco State for Startup Weekend Villahermosa 2016. Their take on the beaker sticker is printed on a white backing and features a tropical Tulipan flower native to the region along with a statue behind the flask. These touches help incorporate some local flavor and still promote Startup Weekend in typical fashion. Not a band mashup, and a sticker that will travel well for all attendees.

Startup Weekend Pavia 2016


We finish our globe trotting in Europe in Italy for Startup Weekend Pavia 2016. They have an attention-grabbing green square sticker with the stunning Pavia skyline of cathedrals, bridges and ancient architecture along with the Startup Weekend beaker. No doubt anyone with this sticker will be starting a conversation about their passion for startups.

Method + Madness Conference | PHXDW 2016

Method + Madness | PHXDW 2016

Design is the method and the madness to pretty much everything. At StickerGiant, we have the responsibility to turn great designs into great stickers everyday. This is why we are so excited to be a sponsor at another year of AIGA Arizona’s Method + Madness Conference | PHXDW.

The Method + Madness Conference is happening this Saturday and Sunday as the main event of Phoenix Design Week.

“It’s a two-day grassroots conference organized by community volunteers for fellow designers, illustrators, writers, and UX professionals. Method + Madness brings together world-class speakers and local experts for two full days of actionable insights, hands-on education, and fire-fueling inspiration.”

This year’s conference is exploring the concept of Flux. This is, simply put, about adapting, as designers, to the audiences you’re trying to reach and balancing the time to create something within the chaos.  Speakers will be addressing this at a lot of the talks this year as creatives from the industry gather for education and fun.

The custom logo sticker for this year is incredible. It’s a full color design with many little details worked into the design as cranes are building over the pink type, bricks are falling into place, there is a pipe line running through, paint brush laying down ink all to spell out the “Method + Madness.”  This sticker is bound to be a hot item for laptops, tablets and more as attendees grab them to slap on their gear.

Thanks to AIGA Arizona and PHXDW for giving us the opportunity to make stickers for a super fun design event. We are honored to be in the list of sponsors that help make an event like this amazing.

Follow along this weekend for all the hot news and topics coming out of Method + Madness Conference | PHXDW 2016 on their Twitter.

Brewer Highlight: Rally King Brewing


It’s time to rally! Rally King Brewing is pouring a huge selection of great craft beers in Fort Collins, Colorado while spreading their brand with custom die cut stickers.

So what is a rally king? The definition of Rally is to “come together again in order to continue fighting after a defeat or dispersion to bring into order again.” The rally cry in this case is how life can just be crazy and Rally King Brewing decided to pursue their passion despite it all and rally together people with great craft beer.

Rally King has a line up beers from hoppy to wheat and a little bit of everything in-between for all beer connoisseurs. Similar to their line up of different color and flavor beers pouring out everyday, they printed up four different Die Cut Stickers to let people represent their craft brewery in a variety of ways. These custom circle stickers are about the size of a coaster and make for a fun walkaway promotion for Rally King Brewing.

Coding for Kids by Bitsbox


A lot of toys for kids incorporate an educational element but having toys to teach some of the new skills children will need has become harder. That’s where a subscription service called Bitsbox came up with their idea to teach kids how to code.

Bitsbox is a website and a monthly subscription box designed for kids (ages 6-12) packed full of fun materials that teach them how to code apps. Think of the children’s books where they have pop out elements on some pages and pull tabs to change the picture, or scenery on the page. That is essentially what Bitsbox has done with an app that kids type in code to and it changes the animations and stories that unfold on the computer based on what they put in. Kids get to program video games, puzzles, drawing tools, music apps, simulations and more within a full-blown app development environment.

From a code book to their subscription box, they have a few options to get started with. Bitsbox puts a lot of work into each one making sure their animations are fun and they add in some bonuses to each box too, like stickers. Their stickers change from month to month, but their most recent one really stood out as an Animal House custom sticker sheet. This one sheet featured twenty individual sticker peel offs for kids to decorate their computers, tablets or somewhere Mom really didn’t want them to redecorate.

Being big sponsors of coding events all around the World like WordCamps, Joomla Days and more; we are super excited to see these stickers going out of the shop to contribute to such a great educational tool for kids provided by Bitsbox.

WordCamp Rochester 2016


WordCamp Rochester 2016 kicks off today for two days of WordPress love and community engagement with the web’s favorite development platform. These WordCampers will be meeting at the University of Rochester’s William E. Simon Graduate School of Business, and we’re hoping that everyone picks up one of these super-sweet, custom kiss cut stickers featuring the Rochester skyline and the iconic WordPress logo. With this design, there’s no doubt that wherever it goes, it will be eye catching.

As for the team in Central New York, we thank them for all of their hard work putting on this event, and we wish nothing but learning and networking for everyone that’s on site for the weekend. The schedule is jam packed with tracks for Beginners and Bloggers, Intermediate users, and the Designer and Developer set. We are proud to be in a group of top notch sponsors, especially the local sponsors who live and work in their community. Their Twitter feed @WordCampRocNY will be running all weekend on the hashtag #wcroc. Check them out, and if you’re anywhere in the Empire State, head to Rochester to get your WordPress on.
