Nine Pin Cider Works


If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, a craft cider works too... right? Nine Pin Cider Works is helping people discover the delicious taste of drinking NY apples with Empire State-themed custom stickers.

Let's talk apples. New York has some really good ones and as a result, the Nine Pin Cider Works has the ability to make great craft ciders. Their goal: To bring more cider into the world.
"Like any revolution, Nine Pin Cider was many years in the making. In 1997, Alejandro’s father paints a 32 foot rose on the brick wall side of 925 Broadway. He raises his family on a small Hudson Valley farm, encouraging a love of nature, adventure and fresh food. In 2010, Alejandro wanders into a store and samples a local hard cider. He quickly develops a passion for the drink and becomes an apprentice. By 2013, Alejandro has perfected his own cider blend, winning a gold medal at the Great Lakes International Cider & Perry Competition. His winning, noncommercial cider is called Catskill Thunder."

Nine Pin Cider Works has built up their brand over the years with new apple varieties creating all sorts of new cider flavors. As they continue to grow and distribute across the country, Nine Pin Cider printed up some green apple colored stickers stating "Drink NY Apples" with the outline of the state of New York next to it. The design sticker of this sticker is both iconic and distinct, and it makes an ideal way to spread the Nine Pin branding even further than their home base in the state capital of Albany.

A little creativity of your brand on a custom sticker might be all it takes to start your own revolution.


Apples Took the Rambling Route


What does it take to make a great cider? It's simple, the best apples. Rambling Route Cider is making great cider from Washington grown apples and distributing their brand with some awesome custom stickers.

Rambling Route is named after the journey of the apple to the west coast. It is being farm grown in Yakima Valley in Washington, known for farming some of the best apples. They are part of Tieton Cider Works which was born out of the Harmony Orchards. The farm is owned by Craig and Sharon Campbell and it has been in their family since the 1920's. Their reason for making cider:
"A love of land, food and drink has inspired us to make cider with the fruit we are growing at our ranch, Harmony Orchards.  We know the ciders we make are an expression of the harvest and reflective of the fruit and the place that it is grown."

This great craft cider is starting to take off on it's journey with stickers. Rambling Route recently released their Hard Pear Cider and with that got more logo stickers to promote it. The stickers are a custom shape, similar to the famous Route 66 sign shape, filled in with their colors and brand name. The logo looks great on the backdrop of the topographic map on the cans, highlighting the rambling journey of the apple. Now, it can be slapped on tractors, growlers or anywhere the journey takes Rambling Route Cider.

Kick off your brand journey with some custom logo stickers that show off your design.

Get Wild with Wild Cider

Wild Cider

Along with craft beer, ciders are becoming more and more popular. Wild Cider has a solid line up of great cider flavors and their brand is spreading like wildfire across the front range of Colorado.

The start to Wild Cider came from a search for a great tasting cider and not finding one with the right flavor. In 2012, that search led them to finding the perfect spot for a cidery in Firestone, Colorado. Many years ago, this particular area of Northern Colorado was known as "the fruit basket of the West" and had over two million fruit trees but a big freeze decimated the area in 1951. After finding the right spot to get started, Wild Cider spent a long time toiling over finding the perfect recipe, which they eventually did.

Wild Cider has several great flavors and continues to grow their offerings. Their most recent addition was a Hazelnut Toffee that we printed up a nice full color tap handle sticker for. A big part of Wild Cider's promotion is through festivals with stickers with their logo as a custom apple shape and proudly boasting their name.

Great taste will always be remembered in people's minds but in the shuffle of a festival it's easy to forget a name, make sure custom stickers are part of your brand's promotions to stick with people.
