Muirwood Reclamations

One of a kind goods can be hard to find but Muirwood Reclamations is doing just that by reusing materials to make an assortment of useful products and decor for the home.

From the outskirts of Chicago comes a husband and wife team that started Muirwood Reclamations. Scott and Kristin Fischer had a need for a dining room table and so they used reclaimed woods to build the table of their dreams. In using reclaimed materials they started building not just tables, but anything from crayon holders for kids to a coat rack using old railroad spikes.

Their latest creation was in association with a local steel factory in Itasca, Illinois as they repurposed real railroad spikes into durable bottle openers. This useful invention was even chosen by The Grommet as a featured new product.

In selling their products on Etsy, they have come to us for promotional stickers featuring their logo and also some runs of barcode matte labels for their different items. There are many steps to success in business and launching new products. We are always excited to see our stickers and product labels help address packaging and promotional needs on the journey.

So you have a business, and you'd like to make sure people know you have a business. After all, that's probably the main reason you struck out on your own, right? To get enough customers so you have a thriving enterprise.

There are so many marketing tactics you can try, some more expensive than others and with various degrees of effectiveness, so we've made the decision simple and are showcasing case studies from some successful small businesses that have used custom stickers to make it big.

Southern California Motorcycle Association and their stickers have made marketing simple and relevant

When the Southern California Motorcycle Association wanted to advertise their exclusive USA Four Corners ride, they turned to sticker marketing to get the job done.  At the end of each race, those who had completed the competition and had their entry recorded were given a sticker of completion. Those stickers indicated to fellow riders you had the soul, grit and tough endurance to ride for sport, and quickly became the most sought-after recognition SCMA has ever had.


WordCamps are the number one place to for everything WordPress, and also the best place to see new brands and businesses showcased via laptop stickers. 9seeds was formed to help small businesses and bloggers get the most out of the WordPress platform, and founder John Hawkins was often a keynote speaker at the Camps.

When his company officially launched in 2009, Hawkins had stickers made for customers and clients. He started to see them show up on laptop cases at WordCamps, and realized what a large, untapped market he could take by storm; his strategy became business card + sticker, and helped his business boom.

Custom stickers can be used for a number of things, and using them for marketing is just one creative way to gain a great reputation. Do you want to see your small business skyrocket to the top? Click here to get your own awesome stickers!

Stickers Can Increase Fundraising in a Big Way

fundraising with stickers stickergiant

Short, simple and to the point. Those are the basics for every great sticker that’s trying to promote, well, anything, and something you should keep in mind. You already know about using stickers as a promotional tool for your existing clients and those targeted audiences you’re trying to reach, but have you ever thought of a clever sticker as a fundraising tool?

It’s an easy concept: you have a cause you need to get the word out about, and need funding to do so. To make money you sometimes have to spend a little money, and stickers are an exceptional way to make a low-cost return on your investment.

Why stickers? Here’s why!

Everyone loves stickers!

• Harder to lose than a business card

• Can be placed in easy-to-see areas for a larger audience

• People enjoy the novelty of stickers

You can use stickers for raffles, too – they’re fun and who doesn’t love a little something free? Have an item donated to your cause, make one yourself or give people the chance to have their name mentioned on your website or their picture taken for the paper. Sell stickers for a nominal fee ($1 each = 1 raffle entry, for example) and then hold the raffle close to your event. Give away stickers to everyone you meet. Put them on your car (or your friend’s car!) and roll around town. Wear one yourself!

Make your cause stand out, and people are more likely to donate. Do you have any other suggestions for how stickers can best be used for fundraising? Let us know in the comments below!

WordCamp Lancaster 2014

wordcamp lancaster stickergiant

This month StickerGiant is proud to be sponsoring WordCamp Lancaster and we are once again honored to be celebrating the creative community that surrounds WordPress. The weekend celebration includes a variety of workshops, presentations, parties and other personal-development events for WordPress junkies.

Held March 1st from Lancaster, Pennsylvania WordCamp Lancaster hosts expert speakers who target the fastest growing and most widely used web content management system — WordPress. WordPress is not only a key technology tool, it is also known for attracting a vibrant business community that enjoys the platform's under-friendly convenience. Even if you can’t make it to the event in Lancaster, it’s worth visiting the regular Wordcamp wiki to see if a WordCamp is happening in your area.

The Saturday event will provide a space for Lancaster community members to gather in sunny Downtown Lancaster from VisionCorps. Attendees will help to showcase the diversity of the local community whilst learning from each other. This event is great for anyone who uses or creates for WordPress; small business owners, bloggers, designers, developers or anyone else who has an interest in WordPress.

Be sure to pick up your StickerGiant schwag when you arrive at the venue. There are four event-specific stickers on the sheet, with three multicolor color event logos, along with our infamous and infinitely flaming StickerGiant logo.

Enhancing WordCamp engagement by printing custom sticker sheets like this a snap, and by combining a full gamut of color with intricate die-cutting ability. You dream it. We do it.

Upcoming WordCamps include:

How To Let Customers Endorse You With Stickers

Great Storm Brewing Company StickerGiant

If you have a logo or brand that is popular in your community, let your customers "like" you on their gear.

Local watering holes like Great Storm Brewing have learned how to execute this brand of customer evangelism with ease. "We love blending the traditional with the rebellious in our brewing and our life and our stickers reflect that," says co-founder Lynn Jacobs. Her words reflect an identity that beer fans are willing to live by, and nothing spreads the word better than stickers.

The best way to imagine sticker marketing is as the real-life version of the Like button. Social media outlets encourage people to connect online; but if you have a brand that encourages engagement, stickers inspire fans to build communities in an offline setting. Stickers are an easy way for people to represent their brand loyalty – and in the process, they evangelize your products or services.

Be sure to listen to your fans when it comes to supporting their sticker endorsement of your company. How do your stickers represent an expression of self for them? Are they willing to go as far as to take pictures of your stickers in use to share on Facebook?

Don't forget that stickers are still a great way to bring the offline world into online communities. "We sell all the beer we make so we haven't had to push too hard to drive sales, but we do use Facebook and Twitter to keep our patrons in the loop," says Lynn. Pay close attention to the places your customer likes to place their stickers. And be sure to encourage your fan engagement when they share your stickers in the virtual world.

5 tips to help encourage your customers to endorse you with stickers:

• Your stickers should express something fun, and be sure to give them away. Helping to define your fans identity and making stickers easy to access encourages sharing.

• Help your brand express itself. Stickers should help your fans experience the true essence of your brand.

• Enroll your employees to act as brand ambassadors, and make it fun for them to participate.

• Keep your message fresh yet consistent.

• Be aware of those around you: If stickering gets out of hand, clean it up. “When we cater events, the first thing we ask organizers is how they feel about stickers.”
