The Beatboxing Cellist named Cello Joe


The cellist is largely considered an instrument of classical music and definitely does not turn heads the way some musicians can. CelloJoe has taken his cello mixed with beatboxing and made a new, unique genre classified as Classical Hip Hop. Through street performances and touring, CelloJoe has turned heads away from the norm to take a listen to his unique style and he is getting creative with his brand through custom stickers.

CelloJoe, also known as Joey Chang, was classically trained as a kid, starting with the piano and eventually taking up the cello. He quickly was bored with the traditional sets and came to realize that street performances gave him a chance to improvise and experiment. It was in playing on the streets that Joey began to beatbox and sing in addition to the cello. He sang about his social and political surroundings and eventually was coined the name "CelloJoe" by a homeless man who listened to him play.

The other thing that makes CelloJoe unique is that he bikes around with his entire live setup.
"CelloJoe records live on stage with a loop pedal and produces intricate tapestries of harmony, melody, and rhythm. His beatboxing (vocal percussion) and funky cello grooves form a rich soundscape for intelligent lyrics and his music spreads love, joy, laughter and conscious vibrations.

CelloJoe is the world's first long distance musical bike touring cellist. He has ridden his bike over 10,000 miles in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia."

Being a street performer, CelloJoe adopted stickers as a way to market himself early on. We have had the pleasure of printing up a couple custom stickers for him, including this most recent design featuring a praying mantis playing the cello and vines coming up resembling a bicycle. These colorful stickers looks great on our premium white stock.

Sticker of Church Logo Embodies The Spirit of Community


In 2005 a journey for 16 people sitting in a living room in northwest San Antonio began.  They wanted to welcome people into a community and church that did not care about denominations.  What they cared about was helping people with a friendly community and to spread the word of the New Testament and discover God’s purposes.

In addition to their sermons, Journey Church also provides various Life Groups for people to partake in socially to help them feel like a more cohesive community.  These groups are usually held in a similar place to where Journey Church started; someone’s living room.

With two simple arches converging into one over the name of Journey Church on their sticker we see simplicity and partnership.  StickerGiant is proud to help Journey Church reach out with these beautiful simple stickers and let you know you’re not alone on your journey.

5 Ways Stickers Spread the Word About Your Event

Bikenetic StickerGiant

Stickers say I've been there.

Is your brand, event or project a destination? Nothing says "We experienced something awesome together," better than a sticker.

Whether you’re attending an event thousands of miles from home or participating in a project in your local community, stickers are a great way to commemorate and connect your attendees.

Falls Church, VA-based bicycle shop Bikenetic has turned their retail/repair brand into something more by hosting outside events that draw a crowd. Stickers are a great way for them to unite their fan-base. "We're a bicycle shop. But we also host concerts by local and national singer/songwriters right here in the shop on our custom built stage," says co-founder Jan Feuchtner. With unique brand features like a concert venue to work with, stickers remind your following to tell others about their experience.

Whether fans are visiting your company, event, or project, people are proud to share their participation. And what’s better than celebrating their attendance with a certificate, a pin, or weather-proof sticker. For them, it personalizes the experience and encourages them to share their experience with others.

5 tips for using stickers to signify commemorative participation:

#1 Make the sticker exclusive to members.

The harder it is to get a sticker, the more valuable it becomes to your network.

#2 Let the design signal a rare accomplishment.

Build interest and drive conversation by making sure that your sticker represents something unique your customer participated in.

#3 Slogans, pictures and colors express inside referencing.

Appeal to your unique member-base by designing a sticker that speaks exclusively to them.

#4 Verify membership so that stickers remain coveted.

Your club members are driven to unite when tougher participation standards are required. Let your sticker reflect and honor their commitment.

#5 Vet thoroughly, but be timely.

Don’t make membership approval so stringent that you forget to reward long-term participants.
