https://www.stickergiant.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Camarillo-Startup-Week-2017-Die-Cut-Sticker-1.jpg

Startup Camarillo is a starting place for events and opportunities for startups, investors, students, and freelancers in Camarillo and surrounding areas of Ventura County, California. They have a die cut sticker with the Techstars branding and a little local twist in the snow globe. It's the perfect event sticker: simple and iconic. It's the optimal portable billboard for their logo and event platform.

Whether you're a student looking to learn, a founder looking for a team, or a startup looking to share your story, this Startup Week is the perfect starting point.

More About Startup Week


Techstars Startup Week brings entrepreneurs, local leaders, and friends together over five days to build momentum and opportunity around your community’s unique entrepreneurial identity. Join in a celebration led by entrepreneurs and hosted in the entrepreneurial spaces you love. Startup Week is one of the Techstars Startup Programs, alongside Startup Weeked and Startup Digest. These stickers see thousands of views.



Startup Communities


Boulder venture capitalist Brad Feld wrote a book about Startup Communities a few years back, and Camarillo is the prime example of a community that's looking long-term to realize success for their entrepreneurial business community.


Here's a talk from a few years back about his theories and how they are playing out around the world.

Over the course of five days, participants in Techstars Startup Week can choose the events they’d like to attend. Typically these events are held at various venues across a city. Speakers from the community, and outside it, are brought in to share their story to motivate and inspire the entrepreneurial community. Local organizers select the tracks they feel are most relevant to their community and choose speakers based on those tracks.

Event stickers help make connections


After Techstars Startup Week, participants find that they’re more connected to their community and no longer feel alone in their efforts. And they take their event sticker with them. They are then ambassadors in the support network that can make the difference between closing up shop and pushing through to success.

Try an event sticker for your next gathering, and you can try name tag stickers, logo stickers, or sticker sheets.

Custom WordPress Wapuu Sticker Sheets ready to rock in Nashville at the third annual WordCamp US

WordCampUS-2017-wapuu-custom-sticker-sheet-web

The Grand WordCamp of them all is upon us: WordCamp US. A rotating festival held every year for two years in each location, this is the largest WordCamp of its kind in the world, and this year, Nashville plays host to WordCamp US 2017.

Wapuu is en route ready to rock on his sticker sheet. There's rockstar Wapuu, two event location stickers, with the highway shield design and the boots, a Tennessee State Flag sticker and a WordPress logo, then a rooster that's lit, and one last WordPress logo that says "Howdy."

WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. Contributors work on the WordPress Core to help develop the open source technology that powers nearly 25% of the modern Internet.

Music City Welcomes WordCamp US


WordCamp US 2017 will be held at Music City Center, 2.1 million square feet of conference awesomeness in the heart of Nashville. WordCamp'ers will groove on the downtown location where they can take in Nashville’s many offerings.

Or, hang out in Music City Center, as it doubles as a gallery for public artwork. There are 50-plus artists and more than 100 pieces of stop-and-gaze artwork. The installation features paintings, suspended pieces, new media, mosaics, and light works throughout the building.

It's not a WordCamp without and After Party, which will be at the Adventure Science Center where they are more exhibits to explore, food, drinks, a photo booth, and karaoke.

Shoutout to all of the organizers at the local WordCamp Nashville team for their work on the ground in advance of this event, and all of the global WordPress team that's making it a great experience.

WordCamp US Schedule and State of the Word


The WordCamp schedule is packed with speakers and of course, the annual "State of the Word" address from Matt Mullenweg, the founder of Automattic and creator of WordPress. Other talks center on using WordPress themes, best practices in web design and discussion topics like how diversity can make businesses, organizations and conferences better or how the WordPress community can be leaders in helping fix the lack of diversity in tech problem. You can both learn and be inspired, while at the same time networking and enjoying a great community and location for a conference.

You can go with a logo sticker, or a sticker sheet like WordCamp. The possibilities are endless with our many custom stickers. Just add your unique take to tell your story.

WordPress is WordCamp Rochester's super power as they bring a Kodak moment to their custom sticker sheet

WordCamp-Rochester-Sticker-Sheet-Wapuu-2017

When the weekend rolls around, we have our sponsor spotlight shining on many volunteer-led events all around the country. Today we're telling the sticker story of WordCamp Rochester and their sticker sheetWordCamp Rochester will be November 18 at SUNY Brockport, and we wanted to send them a shoutout for all of the hard work going into this weekend. It's all about the venue sponsor, and they've offered their space for this second-ever WordCamp Rochester--thanks to the team at the Rochester WordPress Meetup group.

Stickers are a fun and different way to promote your brand and delight the people at your event. With sticker sheets, you have the chance to have a few designs occupying the same space, and when WordCamp gets to work, they bring in a lot of great elements.

Let's take a closer look at what makes up an iconic event sticker.

Designing a great event sticker sheet


WordCamp-Rochester-Wapuu-Sticker-Sheet-2017

With WordCamp stickers, we see great design and fun local tie-ins to each sheet that comes through the shop. If you know anything about Rochester, New York, then you know it's the third-largest city in the Empire State and the home of many major American corporations, most famously the Eastman Kodak Company.

With this iconic brand in mind, the designers brought in the WordPress branding with Wapuu clutching an old Kodak camera with a collection of photographs. Then there's two other WordPress logo stickers with the city skyline of Rochester wrapped around the top. Lastly, you'll see the five different peel offs that feature funny sayings that WordPress lovers will instantly recognize, like "I don't make free websites" and "WordPress is my super power!" Many a web designer has been asked to help someone out for free, or for "exposure," and this sticker sheet plays on that familiar conundrum.

WordCamp: Learn about WordPress with like-minded folks


For those not familiar with WordPress or WordCamp, a WordCamp is a volunteer-led, community-oriented conference that focuses on everything WordPress, which is one of the most-popular digital publishing solutions for the modern Internet. Small businesses, solo entrepreneurs, massive media companies--they're all using WordPress to power their content management and delivery.

WordPress is an open source project, which is just one of the many reasons we've supported their events for years. We love the informal natures of these events and that it's by WordPress users in their local communities. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. This helps the local WordPress community flourish by learning not only from each other, but from a great lineup of speakers who want to share their knowledge.

Workshops and Tracks at WordCamp Rochester 2017


Rochester’s WordCamp will divide its workshops over three tracks, from basic to professional.

The Beginner/Blogger Track is for people who are new to website design, blogging, or WordPress. The sessions are designed for novices who want to blog or be on the web for other personal projects. Likewise, operators of small businesses or non-profit organizations will learn how to promote their enterprises using their own websites with no coding or other technical knowledge.

The Intermediate/Flex Track is one step up and intended for site owners, established bloggers, and entrepreneurs to learn how to communicate with a designer, how to blog effectively, and how to tell whether projects are going well. The overall focus is on website content. Attendees in this track need familiarity with HTML, the basic coding language of the Internet.

The Designer/Developer Track will find interest among professionals and DIY WordPress builders. The sessions here will focus on the graphical end of design and customizing website themes. Skill with HTML and CSS is recommended.

Event Stickers are perfect for any gathering


WordCamps aren't the only events that use stickers or sticker sheets. 5K races, fundraisers, and school groups all use sticker sheets. After all, you get more bang for your buck with a sheet of a few stickers, and if you design it around a theme, you can even tell a story on that sheet, with the peel offs serving as an interactive piece of art for your attendees. These WordCamp sticker sheets peel easily to slap on a laptop or another free piece of swag like a paper notebook, and when people leave your event, they enter the world as a brand ambassador for your community.

Custom sticker sheets bring the WordPress community together and spread the WordCamp message

wordcamp-orlando-dallas-fort-worth-2017-sticker-sheets

We've got a really busy weekend of events, and today we're highlighting WordCamps that feature simply sublime sticker sheets with creativity and design in spades.

Our dear friend Wapuu has two visits scheduled: first he's taking a trip (by horseback!) to WordCamp Dallas-Forth Worth, and then he's off to WordCamp Orlando as a many-costumed super hero. This cuddly character really logs those frequent flyer miles to spread the WordPress message.

Since these are event stickers, the organizing team has the opportunity to include their event branding with a unique, local touch. When it comes to events, we support many volunteer-led initiatives all around the world through stickers, whether they are logo stickers or event branded sticker sheets. Promotional stickers are one of our favorite product types, and the WordPress community has been printing up these whimsical stickers for years.

More than just just fun stickers, they're web design too


Another reason we love these event stickers is that the corresponding websites take the theme from sticker, and then the site design and navigation icons all relate to the theme of the year. Since we see so many events, it's interesting to watch them grow over the years and become more sophisticated. WordCamps, as a general rule, have a great organizational structure and focus on celebrating and developing the WordPress core.

Event stickers reach people where they are


WordCamps have plenty of educational opportunities for attendees to grow their skills and improve their knowledge of WordPress, and since WordPress powers nearly 25% of all websites on the Internet, we know that the folks who are there will be helping build the World Wide Web of the future. Events are place where we find StickerGiant stickers on laptops, on car windows and all over tables where businesses are representing their services. Stickers help you promote your brand and your message, and a sticker sheet provides customization like few other products.

TEDxGeorgiaTech Student Speaker Salon features custom stickers and ideas worth spreading

TEDxGeorgiaTech-die-cut-logo-sticker-2017

The first event of the year for TEDxGeorgiaTech will be their Student Speaker Salon. A Salon is a smaller, more informal gathering that organizers hold to allow conversations to continue in person. They have a black die cut sticker with their event logo and TEDx red logo front and center. It's a simple, powerful design for everyone to spread far and wide.

At a TEDx salon, attendees watch TED Talks, sometimes host a few speakers and have informal discussions about the talks they witnessed. Salons re-engage the community and team during the time between official TEDx events, and spark discussion on issues of interest to a local community.

With a local platform for local ideas to spark global impact, TEDxGeorgiaTech is proud to present six hand-selected Georgia Tech students who are ready and willing to share compelling ideas they believe are worthy of your attention.

We like to say every sticker has a story, and every TEDx event is a night of storytelling. Now they have a custom sticker to tell the story of their organization.
