This week we welcome Jennifer and Jerry from Colorado Liquor Pickles, who mix beer and spirits with pickles. Two of nature’s greatest creations, just add labels.
You can listen to the interview, and there's more about this episode below.
Top of Mind
Hamish talked all about our Matte Die Cut Stickers, which we've been promoting quite a bit this week on all of our social feeds. This new product offering means you can get custom shaped Die Cut Stickers with a matte finish that's much different than our glossy option. If you are looking for a sample pack to test these out, head to stickergiant.com/samples.
Andrew wanted to make sure that everyone knew about our 24 days of Stickers stream on our Instagram, where we're highlighting fun seasonal stickers that feature a holiday design.
Sticker Story: Colorado Liquor Pickles
We started with their origin story. They lived in Colorado and left. When they returned from the East Coast, they started visiting breweries and then the lightbulb moment happened: brine the cucumbers in liquor. They started with beer, and it's been a non-stop journey since. They developed relationships local breweries, and then they started working with Spirit Hound Distillers in Lyons. They are juggling this business with other efforts, but they are fully dedicated to this project. In fact, some days, they'll spend 10 hours packing and doing production. Their story is similar to our founder story with John Fischer back in Episode 2, where he talks about starting StickerGiant in his home with his wife. It's great to see these news businesses in a similar stage, as it's exciting to start up something.
Hamish and Jerry geeked out a bit on bikes before we turned to their use of matte and glossy labels, and how they are constantly doing research and development on new recipes. They have chosen to go with Matte Labels for their products, for the way these labels fit with the craft appeal of their product Liquor Pickles. One bit of media they were excited about is their upcoming slot on Booze Traveler on the Travel Channel, which airs in January. They have a big year ahead in 2018, and you know we'll be following their story. Their new website is set to launch soon, and we'll get a link in here when it does.
End of Season One!
We are wrapping up season one, and we'll be back again 12th, January 2018, with a new lineup of content and guests. It will also be National Sticker Day, and we'll have plenty to talk about with Saul the World's Largest Sticker Ball.
We want to wish everyone a happy holiday season and thanks for listening this year. We are so very appreciative of all of the folks who have checked out a Live Friday or listened to an episode of the podcast. It means a lot, and we can't wait to share more Sticker Stories.
The podcast will be available to download in all the usual spots: iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, SoundCloud and Radio Public.
See you in 2018!
