Meet Tommy: Finishing Lead, Gamer and Heavy Metal Enthusiast


Get to know Tommy, another member of the StickerGiant Team.

Finishing Lead at StickerGiant

Tommy is the lead on all our finishing equipment, from getting the machines ready to run, the proper lamination in place and making sure your stickers and labels get cut and rolled just the way you want.

In his free time, it’s all about video games and heavy metal.

Hey Tommy!

My name is Tommy, and this is my sticker story.

I'm the laser lead operator, so I pretty much will organize rolls, see who get them first, tell about all the work, and then, if there's any issues I'm dealing with them.

Ever since I was a young kid, my dad's worked with computers, so I've been building computers from the ground up as long as I can remember.

What's Your Story?

I'm from New York, but I've lived here for around 23 years. I play a lot of video games, do a lot of skateboarding. Maybe some Frisbee golf here and there, computer work that's about it.

What's Your Favorite Part About StickerGiant?

I like working here because of the people, mainly because I get along with everyone, everyone's super cool to each other, most of time the machinery I like a lot, because I've never really worked with lasers before, and I think it's a really cool application we're using it for.

What Else?

My favorite types of music are death metal, brutal death metal, technical death metal, pretty much the broad spectrum of it all there's a few different subgenres that I'm not gonna get into.

More folks behind the stickers

At StickerGiant, employees like Tommy are encouraged to take part in the Open Book Finance project, and we've been running this program for seven years now. There is a special way that we play the Great Game of Business, and our team contributes to Open Book by sharing the numbers and working every week to better understand how to grow the business. Since Tommy runs the finishing machines, he's a important step in getting the stickers produced and out the door for our customers.

We view each role as vital pieces of our team, and it's always great to see the team delight customers. We hope you enjoy Tommy's sticker story and the many more on our blog. Check them out under the Employee Feature category.

Meet John Fischer, the original StickerGiant

[SG]-John-Sticker-Story-Blog-BadgeMeet John Fischer, the founder and owner of StickerGiant. John talks about his background, what he enjoys the most about the company and what he's interested in outside of the sticker shop.
John's been in the news a bunch over the years, and you can read some of the coverage on our press page. Our podcast team also sat down with John for an interview in our founder's story episode, where we talk about starting the company and the many changes over the year. It's a deeper dive into running a business, and it's worth the listen.

Meet John the StickerGiant

My name is John Fischer, and this is my sticker story.

Hey John! What do you do?

I'm the owner and founder StickerGiant. I started StickerGiant 17/18 years ago in my basement with my wife, and we just started selling political bumper stickers online and one day we realized: "we have an actual business."

What's Your Background?

I went to school for art, so I have a commercial art background and a commercial art degree, and I worked in printing companies selling printing to the advertising agency world and retouching. Way back in the day before the Internet. Then when the Internet happened, I got into Internet marketing really heavily and at an ad agency, and I help build some of the very first websites that did anything.

What's your favorite part about StickerGiant?

My favorite part of StickerGiant is the people and the team and how much fun they have getting everything done every day.

What makes StickerGiant different?

We have our own way of doing things. We're an Open Book Finance company. We're an EOS company, which is a certain kind of management that lets everybody know what they're supposed to be doing and what their job is every day. It helps all of us get along super good.

What else?
I have a couple hobbies. One of them is traveling and the other one is I train German police dogs.

Thanks for answering our questions, John!
