Matte stickers help sparks fly during Ignite Boulder 34



One of our top local event sponsorships of the year is happening tonight, and it's yet another sell-out edition. Ignite Boulder is one of the largest Ignite Talks communities in the world, and this 34th version is loaded with fun talks and short films. Oh yeah, and our new matte stickers will be on site at the beautiful Boulder Theater for the organizing team to promote their event.

Sticker design helps a brand stand out


Their matte sticker design has the perfectly cut shape with no backing, a main feature of our die cuts. You can see the Ignite Talks branding (sparks flying from the word Ignite) and location tag for Boulder as the foundation, which is a powerful image. The matte finish helps the sublimated background display the mountains of Colorado and signify this iconic setting.

More about Ignite 34 and thanks to the organizing team


Since this is a long-time sponsorship and members of our team attend the event, we wanted to give a gig shoutout to all of the folks behind the scenes that help coach speakers, prepare the slideshow, promote ticket sales, assist with ushering and much more. Ignite Boulder is 100% volunteer-led and organized by Glider, a local community group. It truly takes a village to pull of these types of events, so thanks to all of those folks. Ignite Boulder gives away any profits they make to 501c3 nonprofits. Let them know if you are up to something amazing and can use their extra funds.

Traditionally, the Winter Ignite is known as Winter Ball or "Nerd Prom," and when folks gather the getups are all over the map, as you'd expect from Boulder, Colorado. There's the ugly holiday sweater, the full ball gown, and of course, the shorts tuxedo. Truly, a range of fashion that are  all perfect for a night of geeky fun.




With Ignite Talks, presenters get 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds. The result is a fast and fun presentation which lasts just 5 minutes. The motto is: enlighten us, but make it quick.

Ignite events are held in cities around the world. Find an Ignite near you, browse Ignite videos or start a new Ignite in your city.
Ignite Talks is a fast-paced geek event started in 2006 by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. Since the first Ignite took place in Seattle around 10 years ago, Ignite has become an international phenomenon, with Ignite events produced in Helsinki, Tunisia, Paris, New York City and over 350 other locations in between.

Ignite’s mission is “Everyone Speaks.” We believe that public speaking builds confidence in individuals and that events like Ignite build community. Our goal is to make it possible for anyone, anywhere, to learn to present their ideas and their stories.

Ignite Boulder Matte Stickers make a spark


Since Ignite Talks are all about sparking conversations, it's only fitting that there's photo and video commemorating our first sparks coming from matte stickers. This happens when the roll passes through our laser die cut machine. As the laser traces the path of the sticker outline, it's zapping all along the edge. It's a really fun process to watch as the stickers all come out at the other end of the machine where they stack up, like you see in the photo above.


Here's the video we shot as this order went through shop.

Ignite Boulder 33 goes live on Thursday at the Boulder Theater. Brave speakers get to teach the audience about their passion with 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds. The result is a fast and fun presentation lasting just 5 minutes. Custom name tag stickers make it even more fun with whimsical phrases that serve as an instant ice-breaker for folks at the show.


We've been a long-time sponsor of this volunteer-run geek event that sells out the largest venues in town. Ignite Talk events are held in cities around the world, and we are proud of the Boulder Ignite community for making it to their thirty-third edition. With one mic, one presentation and room full of interested people, it's an honest discussion about community, culture and the world.

Ignite Boulder is run by a small group of volunteer organizers, which is why we love supporting this event.

Global Ignite Week: Sparks will fly and name tags will unite at tonight's Ignite Boulder 32

Ignite-Boulder-Sponosored-Name-Tags-May-2017-blog

It's time for one of our favorite community sponsorships, Ignite Boulder, back for the 32nd edition live at the Boulder Theater. And it's also Global Ignite Week, so we'll enjoy watching the sparks fly worldwide. We've printed our share of their name tags over the years. The organizing team always put a series of fun phrases on these custom square stickers.

Whenever we have our team manning the name tag table at this event, we see the social interaction around these stickers. There's always a conversation around these phrases, and the name tags serve as a natural icebreaker when you're in a room full of strangers watching someone else put on a short presentation. Since they typically print up about ten of these, there are plenty of options for attendees to express some personal style with the name tag they pick. Again, great for conversation starters and mingling before the show in the Boulder Theater (what a beautiful venue) and during setbreak out on the Pearl Street Mall in Downtown Boulder.

Ignite Talks are presenters of 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds. The result is a fast and fun presentation which lasts just 5 minutes. If you can find an Ignite near your, add it to your dance card, circle it on your wall calendar, set that reminder in your calendar app--whatever you need to do to remember. We got a sneak preview of the speakers, and these sparks (or, Ignite Talk) look so fun. The topics cover a range of health and wellness, long distance swimming, alternative energy, intentional giving and other ideas that will make you think.

It's nearing the end of yet another Boulder Startup Week (one of our favorite local events!), so the geek flame will be on full burn.

You can follow the action live on Twitter, and check the Ignite Boulder website for the videos once they've posted--they are at the bottom of the page. We love to go back and watch videos from previous editions, as they certainly have their educational and inspirational qualities.

Ignite Boulder 31

Ignite-boulder-31-Sponsored-Stickers-facebook-blog

We're back at the Boulder Theater tonight with sponsored name tag stickers for Ignite Boulder 31.

There's seven different whimsical (and a few downright LOL) name tags that will be on site, and as folks celebrate and mingling for the holidays, they can do so with some fun. They have seven different designs that are guaranteed to spark a conversation, which is the entire mission of Ignite Talks. We are a proud sponsor these events all over the country.
What is Ignite Boulder?

Ignite Boulder is a night of presentations on a variety of topics – with a twist. Each presentation has 20 slides, that automatically advance after 15 seconds. It is a worldwide movement, and Boulder hosts the largest in the world every 2 or 3 months.

What is it like? The talks (or sparks) are funny, interesting, nerdy, quick and from the heart. It is NOT a place to pitch your business or yourself. There will be a livestream going when the show starts at 7pm if you can't be in town for the show. Don't forget to dress up tomorrow! It's the holiday tradition.

All of their videos on YouTube so that you can watch them over and over. See them all here!

Live from Ignite Boulder 30

It's time for the fall installation of Ignite Boulder, one of our favorite, local public-speaking events and sponsorships. Crowds will gather at the Boulder Theater tonight (doors at 6pm, show at 7pm) for a night of engaging presentations from amateur speakers.

This is the 30th edition of Ignite Boulder, and it's grown into the world's largest Ignite event. We have printed up so many quirky name tag stickers over the years, and these versions are witty and, in a few cases, just plain laugh-out-loud funny. With pop culture references and ice-breaker on each name tag, the community gets together and is instantly bonded through stickers.

We just love Ignite Boulder, and we hope to see you at the Boulder Theater.
