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


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


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 event stickers heading to Techstars and Google for Entrepreneurs Startup Weekends


Today we start a few weeks of startup coverage, as this weekend serves as the unofficial start to Global Startup Weekend.

We're a long-time partner of these volunteer-led community events, and when November rolls around, we really see a bunch of these stickers come through the shop. We love seeing the local flavor that each designer puts into their sticker, and we get to learn all about new cities around the world. Big thanks to Google for Entrepreneurs and Techstars for making these events happen.

This weekend, we have stickers traveling to Tahoe, Tuscon, Fort Worth, Noida and Mexico City for their gatherings.

Let's start with Startup Weekend Tahoe and their Lake Tahoe-shaped kiss cut sticker that features a multi-colored geometric background and the iconic Startup Weekend beaker. They also incorporated the @SWTahoe Twitter handle so anyone can easily access their account and enage with their community. Nice touch.

Down in Tucson at the University of Arizona for their Startup Weekend, we have a "Wildcat Red" custom die cut sticker with the beaker and the Eller College of Management as the background. This sticker also features a plug for the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship and their Innovate UA branding.

Startup Weekend Fort Worth has a massive robot beaker towering over the city skyline on a seafoam green background and printed on a kiss cut sticker. They are using a cool mix of custom fonts with large block sans serif and a thin sans serif to help set the brand apart.

Startup Weekend Artificial Intelligence Mexico City has a sticker sheet packed with six stickers. There's some event branding and a few beaker peel off on the sheet that will give attendees a few application options.

Heading over to Startup Weekend Social Innovation Noida in India, we find a green kiss cut sticker with a geometric patter and the event branding front and center.

Sticker sheets take flight to WordCamp Seattle with custom Wapuus and WordPress branding

WordCamp-Seattle-2017-Sticker-Sheet-Wapuu-webWordCamp Seattle is back with a custom Wapuu sticker sheet celebrating Wordpress and the aviation culture of the Seattle area.

WordCamps are a volunteer-led conference for the WordPress community that bring together designers, developers and publishers for a weekend of networking and learning about WordPress, one of the web's favorite development platform.

This event sticker sheet has the event hashtag #WCSEA, the WordPress mantra "Code is Poetry," two Wapuus with one on a set of pilots wings and one as a flying plane, and lastly there's a set of WordPress logo pilot wings. Plenty of branding, whimsy and collectable fun for the attendees in Seattle.

StickerGiant Loves WordCamp

We print up these promotional stickers, usually in sheets, for nearly every WordCamp in the world. We've been providing this sponsorship because we're WordPress users here at StickerGiant, and we really enjoy the hard work and dedication the organizers put into each event. Plus, and let's be serious, we love creative sticker designs, and the WordCamp sticker designers always delight.

Why you should use a sticker sheet for your next event

Sticker sheets are a terrific way to promote your event and your brand. The sticker sheet is an economical choice because you can get a few different designs onto your sticker. Plus, you can give the person who gets the sticker a bit of creative license on where they put the sticker options. These stickers typically print on our white gloss material, but there are some events that use our clear product.

When it comes to designing sticker sheets for an event, you want to get a few logos on there, add the custom event branding and your relevant social icons. Calls to action are great as a marketing tool. This way, people can slap these peels wherever they want, and they serve as a traveling promotion for your team. And when your fans take pictures and post them on social media and then tag you? Well that's pure gold, and they're doing your job for you...which is the whole point of these event stickers.

If this sounds like a good idea for your next event, try out our custom sticker options and tailor them to your needs.

We're heading to the City of Brotherly Love for WordCamp Philly 2017, which is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, October 28 and 29. Sticker sheets help celebrate the event and the Halloween season.

Wapuu-filled sticker sheet

Four different Wapuu characters grace this Halloween-themed sticker sheet with nine total stickers packed onto this design.

What's a Wordcamp?

Well WordCamps started as a way for WordPress communities around the world to gather. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users. It's all volunteer-driven, which is why we have been sponsoring these events for so many years. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. It's great. We've printed up hundreds of sticker sheets and WordPress logo promotional stickers.

WordCamp Philly is intended to be the premiere WordPress-related technical conference in Philadelphia. It is a two-day event, with the Saturday schedule packed with learning opportunities. This year there is going be a Sunday Contributor Day, which is hands-on hackfest that helps improve the WordPress codebase. Contributor Day is also for anyone who want to to help out and to learn from some of the most talented people around.

For WordCamp Philly, speaker sessions will be at the University of the Sciences. The After-Party (a key piece to any WordCamp) will begin at 6 pm Saturday at William Street Common. Read the post on their site for more details.

This Pop Chart Lab Dream Team sticker sheet is a gold medal winner


If you follow our blog, you know that we print so many different shapes, sizes and designs of stickers. Pop Chart Lab in Brooklyn, New York, just printed up this creative, fun sticker sheet on our clear material featuring the heads of eight of the 1996 USA Men's Basketball Dream Team and a jersey from that gold medal winning squad.

Pop Chart Lab is a design and creative shop in New York City that creates beautiful visual graphic displays for all sorts of topics, whether it's the evolution of bicycles or the many different types of bird varieties. Or say you're a serious sneaker head, they've got a poster for you of the greatest sneakers in history.  You can get them in framed for wall decor. These pieces are all so unique, and they make for great gifts. You can find their work in select stores all around the country.

Here's all of the different collections of prints that they carry. You can really get lost in the intricacies and the information that these pieces of art contain, and that's a testament to the work their team puts into these products: Alcohol, Americana , Architecture, Beer, Coffee, Comics, Design, Fashion, Food, Gaming, Hip-Hop, Kids, Literary, Maps, Movies/TV, Music, Nature, NYC, Sports, Tech, Wine.

They even have a set of design for "Data Tots" with fun and colorful art for kids that's educational and inspiring.

We had a quick email Q&A with their team. Below is what followed, lightly edited.

SG: How do you use your stickers?

Pop Chart Lab: Starting with the stickers themselves-we mostly just use them as fun, free surprises to pack in with customer orders. We enjoy the idea of customers opening their package and finding an unexpected bonus inside.

Tell us about the Pop Chart Lab story?

Pop Chart Lab: As for the company itself, it started when our founders, Patrick and Ben, an editor and a designer working in publishing, were collaborating on a book of charts, and they realized no one was really creating charts about anything fun. So, in their spare time, they took it upon themselves to remedy this error, and came up with our original two prints: A Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names and The Very Many Varieties of Beer. While these are technically our two oldest charts, they're still two of the most popular, and really exemplify the philosophy of the company: Obsessive research and obsessive design about topics people obsess about.

Any interesting stories from the early days that you feel defined the beginning of your business?

Pop Chart Lab: Originally, Pop Chart Lab was meant to just be a fun side project for Patrick and Ben, but soon enough the prints ended up being featured on the Today Show right before Christmas. From there, orders blew up exponentially, and within a year or two, Pop Chart Lab became a fully fledged company that employs about two dozen people today.

So what makes a Pop Chart Lab print?

Pop Chart Lab: Well, it starts with meticulous research. Our team of researchers spends time—a lot of time—learning all there is to know about a given topic. We have an award-winning design team that transforms all of research into an eye-catching, informative work of (ch)art (as we like to call it). To finish, we use superior quality, environmentally friendly inks with museum-grade paper, and they we offset-press the final product in Brooklyn, New York.

Here's a picture from our website that shows where the magic happens.

College is an Adventure at Sierra Nevada College in Lake Tahoe


As students return to campuses all across the country, university marketing marketing departments are kicking into high gear with fresh promotions and novel ways to connect with new students on campus. Sticker sheets are just one way to make your message stick.

Since it's back to school time, it's a perfect moment to highlight efforts by schools and college across the country as they welcome new students to their campuses.

Sierra Nevada College Tahoe built a sticker sheet that features two peel offs serving as SNC Tahoe Badges. The two peels on the sticker sheet represent day and night over the lake, with each sticker in a different color palette. The rest of the sheet contains the college's branding and slogans, "College is an Adventure" and "6,224 feet above normal." Students that attend SNC Tahoe will have a fun sticker to put on their laptops, notebooks, dorm room doors and anywhere else that a circle sticker seems appropriate. The background has outlines of evergreen trees and really gives contrast to the peel offs.

SNC Tahoe is Nevada’s only accredited, private, four-year institution, and with a location high in the Sierras on the shores of legendary Lake Tahoe, it's 6,224 feet above normal, just like their sticker says. There are over 30 majors from outdoor leadership & sustainability to ski business & ceramics in this liberal arts college that was founded in 1969. The Eagles have won national championships in both men's and women's ski and snowboard events. And what a setting for their campus! Lake Tahoe is a 1,645-foot deep freshwater lake nestled high within the Sierra Nevada Mountains on the border between California and Nevada.The campus is on the northeast corner in the town of Incline Village, and it's no wonder that many students at SNC Tahoe focus on environmental studies.
