This weekend's sponsorship is all about creative craft business ideas and the maker movement. In the case of this event's stickers, the team went with custom die cut that captures the spirit of the culture and this gathering.
It's a circle, but with a small bump out on the bottom of the sticker to hold the tagline from the event: "Crafting your creative business." It's a mix of grey and blue colors to give it a nice pop.
In popular culture, crafting is taking center stage, with a made-for-TV reality series on NBC called ‘The Handmade Project,’ which is a crafts competition hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. This focus on crafting celebrates artisanship and the makers who can create amazing businesses and products with their hands and their minds, just like Maker Sessions. This edition of the Maker Sessions has a focus of "Selling Your Idea," where participants are encouraged to bring their best elevator pitch to panel of experts who will give feedback.
The Maker Sessions is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that strives to strengthen the creative community with a series of evening educational events for artist entrepreneurs and creative business people.
StickerGiant sponsored stickers will be on hand for the third in a series of four events that will take place across multiples venues and will feature 70-plus makers from around the regional. There will be thousands of shoppers flocking to Akron’s downtown, along with pop up markets all over town.
Crafty Mart has been holding court since 2009, and it's providing Akronites with the opportunity to shop small and it's built a platform for local artists and makers to sell their goods. Most importantly, these events have put Akron on the map they've helped attract unique crafters and artisans to the Rubber City.
We wish all attendees a productive and creative event, and if you're up there pitching to the expert panel good luck with your presentation. Our sponsorships are all about making an impact in the community, and these folks are bringing it with great custom stickers and crafting ideas.
