Inside StickerGiant: Meet Jordan

SG-Meet-Jordan

Time to introduce another one of the StickerGiant Team making your custom stickers and labels a reality. Meet Jordan, who is part of our Pre Press Team getting stickers and labels ready to run through the printers and finishing equipment. He originally started on the Production Team helping to sheet and package stickers before they get shipped out. Here is a little more about who Jordan is.

Where are you from?
I am originally from Aurora, Colorado.

What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I am an avid outdoor enthusiast filling my time with lots of fishing and amateur remote control racing. I am also an aspiring home brewer and really enjoy sharing that hobby with my friends and family.

What do you do at StickerGiant?
At StickerGiant, I work on our Pre-Press Team preparing and assembling submitted orders from our Customer Service Team that head into Production. I produce a print layout file to be 'ripped' for the Press based on the artwork size and final orientation. I also produce a cut file that communicates to our lasers a specific profile and speed in which to cut the sticker (or label) out.

What led you to work at StickerGiant?
I was owner and operator for a local clothing company which gave me a fairly good education using the Adobe Suite as well as machine operation and customer service. At the time, I was also a full time graphic installer for a local manufacturing company looking to further my skills and knowhow. A fellow employee mentioned my name to my now supervisor when a position sheet cutting our individual stickers became available. I had an interview and began pretty shortly thereafter.

Anything else you want to share?
Stickers have been an extremely big passion of mine since a very young age. I never dreamt it possible to have the opportunity to work for a company that made and created stickers open to close, day in; day out. I love seeing all of the various companies and people utilizing stickers to tell their story. Being able to share something I am passionate about with other passionate people really makes this a fun environment to work in. It is an absolute moment of joy when you see something you helped to produce stuck on something out in the world.

Jordan just celebrated his three year anniversary with us here at StickerGiant. He is a huge part of us being able to get quality custom stickers and labels made with fast turnaround.

A Look Inside StickerGiant

SG-Inside-Look-StickerGiant

Last year was a big year for all of us here at StickerGiant. We made a big move into a new facility, hired on more staff and are printing more customs stickers and labels than ever.

We printed 5,830,365 feet of sticky substrate material, or 1,104 miles. This is up from 800.69 miles of material printed in 2015. To put this in perspective, it would take leading NFL rusher Ezekiel Elliott 1,120 consecutive seasons rushing for 1,631 yards average to equal the amount of material we printed this past year.

Given all the fun things happening here in a new factory, we put together this new video for you to get an inside look into StickerGiant. Enjoy.

Get to Know StickerGiant: Meet Melissa

SG-Meet-Melissa

Hey Sticker Fans! We hope you all had an awesome week and are ready for your New Year festivities. We thought we'd take a timeout from our regular sticker and label programming for you to meet another one of our StickerGiant Team members, Melissa.

Melissa has been with StickerGiant for two years and has played in a huge role in multiple areas of the company as it has grown.
Where are you from?

I am from Cheyenne, Wyoming. Though, I have spent most of my adult life in Colorado where I feel much more at home.


What do you like to do in your free time?

When I'm not busy being a mom, I like working on art projects or spending time at my fiance's brewery SKEYE Brewing. We also like visiting many of the other awesome breweries in our area or riding around on the motorcycle.




What's your role here at StickerGiant?

I worked the first year and a half on the Customer Service Team and am now working as part of the Shipping Team. When stickers and labels are ready I take a picture, box them up and ship them out. I love the fact that I get to see so many of the awesome stickers and labels coming through. It's also nice to be able to listen to music, move around and not be tied to a desk.




What led you to work at StickerGiant? 




I was trying to move back to Colorado after a few years living in Wyoming and a friend of mine came across a job posting for StickerGiant. After researching the company, I knew it was definitely a place I wanted to work so I applied. Two interviews later I was offered the job and the rest is history!




Anything else you'd like to share? 





StickerGiant is my most favorite place to work. I feel so fortunate to work with such great people doing such fun work. There are times things can be stressful but everyone is willing to pitch in where they can and it leads to a strong family feel in our work environment. I have definitely made some lifelong friends working here and feel blessed to be part of such a great team.





Melissa is a huge asset to our StickerGiant Team and odds are she has helped get your stickers or labels delivered fast.

Meet the Allen Brothers

SG-Meet-The-Allen-Brothers

Meet Pierce and Chad Allen.  These two are in fact siblings.

Pierce is the eldest of the two brothers, the bearded one, and started with StickerGiant a little over a year ago sheeting stickers and has worked his way into being a Laser Operator. His job is to ensure sticker rolls get loaded and cut into the right custom shapes.

Chad is the younger, clean shaven Allen brother. He started at StickerGiant in Shipping. From there he has taken on winding and rewinding rolled labels, sheeting stickers and continues to make sure orders get out the door in a timely manner. Chad is also slated to learn how to operate the laser. That's right the Allen Brothers will be running laser alley here at the new StickerGiant facility.

We sat the brother sticker duo down to introduce them and find out a little more about them.

Do you like working together?
Yes, we do. Our biggest challenge is at lunch times when we have to figure out where to eat. Generally, it begins with just driving and then pointing at what sounds good. - Chad

Do you still hang out outside of work? What do you like to do together?
We do still hang out, primarily on the weekends, board games with our Dad, camping and video games usually make up our free time. - Pierce

Favorite stickers seen at StickerGiant?
We did a bunch of 8-bit original Doom themed stickers that were awesome. - Chad

I loved the ET inside an Alien outfit that was a clear sticker we printed. - Pierce

Who is the favorite at StickerGiant?
Chad. He's more friendly, I am typically alone by my laser in the back. - Pierce (We love you too, Pierce)

If there was a timed race of sheeting stickers, who would win?
Pierce, hands down. I would beat him at shipping orders though. - Chad

The Allen brothers are also among the tallest of the StickerGiant crew and will be seen annually as faces in the back of group photos. The picture from above was not staged and they do in fact both have the same Jurassic Park shirt and coincidently wore them on the same day.

The combination of the Allen brothers has been a huge contribution to the StickerGiant Team and they are a big reason our custom stickers and labels get delivered with guaranteed quality.

Get to Know StickerGiant: Meet Melanie

SG-Meet-Melanie

It's time to introduce you to another one of the StickerGiant Team. Meet Melanie, one of our friendly Custom Sticker Experts that assists with getting your stickers ordered and helps all the way from the proof to delivery.

Melanie is one of many pleasant voices you will hear when calling us up to get an order going and she may be on the other end of an email, or chat sent to us. She is knowledgeable about our different custom sticker and label types and makes sure you get the right one for your specific needs. So what's Melanie all about? We posed some question for her to answer:

What's your story?
I originally hail from San Jose, CA but grew up in the small quaint town of Niwot, Colorado as an only child. I attended University of Colorado at Boulder where I got to unleash my inner philosopher. I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in both Philosophy and Communication. I currently reside in Boulder, CO with my great boyfriend and my two loving kitties.

What do you do in your free time?
When I am not at StickerGiant, you will most likely find me in my movie room playing video games or reading graphic novels. I also love visiting and supporting local breweries and trying out new local restaurants. I enjoy getting outdoors when I can and love the beautiful scenery that we are so lucky to experience everyday here in Colorado.

What's your favorite part of being at StickerGiant?
My favorite part about working at StickerGiant is constantly learning about something I knew nothing about two years ago. I love being challenged and having to gain new knowledge in order to excel at my job. I also love being able to problem solve for my customers when they call and to be able to truly make their day.

Melanie also stated that if she had to choose between the mountains or the beach, she would go with the beach. This explains why she has lived in Colorado twenty two years and never gone skiing. She also partakes in weekly "water cooler" discussions of Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and the latest video games to hit the market.

Get to Know StickerGiant: Meet Kevin

Meet Kevin

It's time to get to know another member of the StickerGiant team. Meet Kevin, Production Artist here at StickerGiant making sure all art files coming through our ready to be turned into colorful stickers and labels.

Kevin does a lot here at StickerGiant, including being part of the team that reviews every piece of art we get sent and turning them into beautiful art proofs. He also helps design and create the StickerGiant Monthly Sticker Sheets that go out in every order. Kevin has been part of Team StickerGiant going on almost three years now.

Kevin's most recent big project has been assisting in the setup of our Artwork Services, this new offering let's people who have just a rough sketch of what they'd like a sticker to look like to submit a request to have Kevin and his team create their design that will then turn into a custom sticker. This is a great offering to those who don't have a lot of artistic ability or a design team to work with.

We posed a few questions for Kevin, for you to get to know him a little better and understand the man behind the art:
What got you into art and design?

Colors, Composition, and Design have caught my eyes since I can remember.  I've always been a critical thinker with a knack for computers so it seemed like a perfect fit to try it out in college, which confirmed that art and design was something I wanted to be around all the time.  Plus, the world could always use a little more Graphic Design.

What's your favorite part of working at StickerGiant?

My coworkers are amazing and I love seeing the finished product go out the door.  It's great being around so many people who work hard together and are good at what they do.

What do you enjoy in your free time outside of the office?

Landscape Photography has been a big hobby of mine for the last couple years.  I bring my camera everywhere and its a great excuse to get out and explore the outdoors with a bonus of having some photos that you enjoy to remember the experience.  Also, hiking, playing hockey and going to concerts are always a good time.

Kevin keeps collections of his pictures of colorful things and more on his Instagram, @kevingriffithco, so check it out.
