Inside StickerGiant: Meet Jordan

SG-Meet-Jordan

Time to introduce another one of the StickerGiant Team making your custom stickers and labels a reality. Meet Jordan, who is part of our Pre Press Team getting stickers and labels ready to run through the printers and finishing equipment. He originally started on the Production Team helping to sheet and package stickers before they get shipped out. Here is a little more about who Jordan is.

Where are you from?

I am originally from Aurora, Colorado.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, I am an avid outdoor enthusiast filling my time with lots of fishing and amateur remote control racing. I am also an aspiring home brewer and really enjoy sharing that hobby with my friends and family.

What do you do at StickerGiant?

At StickerGiant, I work on our Pre-Press Team preparing and assembling submitted orders from our Customer Service Team that head into Production. I produce a print layout file to be ‘ripped’ for the Press based on the artwork size and final orientation. I also produce a cut file that communicates to our lasers a specific profile and speed in which to cut the sticker (or label) out.

What led you to work at StickerGiant?

I was owner and operator for a local clothing company which gave me a fairly good education using the Adobe Suite as well as machine operation and customer service. At the time, I was also a full time graphic installer for a local manufacturing company looking to further my skills and knowhow. A fellow employee mentioned my name to my now supervisor when a position sheet cutting our individual stickers became available. I had an interview and began pretty shortly thereafter.

Anything else you want to share?

Stickers have been an extremely big passion of mine since a very young age. I never dreamt it possible to have the opportunity to work for a company that made and created stickers open to close, day in; day out. I love seeing all of the various companies and people utilizing stickers to tell their story. Being able to share something I am passionate about with other passionate people really makes this a fun environment to work in. It is an absolute moment of joy when you see something you helped to produce stuck on something out in the world.

Jordan just celebrated his three year anniversary with us here at StickerGiant. He is a huge part of us being able to get quality custom stickers and labels made with fast turnaround.

The 2nd Annual National Sticker Day

SG-NationalStickerDay

It’s our most favorite day ever! National Sticker Day is here and that means we get to celebrate all things stickers and how much fun it is to slap on stickers everywhere.

Okay, so we made the day and we celebrate stickers every day. We are guilty of that, but just admit it, seeing that trending #NationalStickerDay on your Twitter or Facebook will bring a smile to your face.

Why celebrate another national day? National Sticker Day was created specifically on January 13th, as it was the birthday to R. Stanton Avery, the original inventor of the sticky adhesive label. It’s not just a random day to celebrate stickers, it’s in honor of the man who made stickers what they are today.

Make sure to share your stickers on social media with #NationalStickerDay and tag us @stickergiant, as we will be re-sharing the best photos through our various accounts.

In celebrating National Sticker Day, our Die Cut Stickers, Kiss Cut Stickers and Clear Stickers are on special Buy 500, Get 250 free for the same design. Enter coupon: NTLSTICKERDAY at check out to apply. Expires 2/10/17.

If you’re in the Longmont, Colorado area, Saul the World’s Largest Sticker Ball is hosting a Happy Hour at Wibby Brewing to celebrate National Sticker Day in style with stickers. Stop by from 3:00pm to 6:00pm MST to grab a craft lager and slap on a sticker.

Stick It To Cancer with StickerGiant

SG-Stick-It-To-Cancer

In honor of the second annual National Sticker Day on January 13th, StickerGiant and Saul the Sticker Ball are encouraging everyone to “Stick It To Cancer” by raising money to fight against cancer that is afflicting kids everywhere.

In partnership with Children’s Hospital Colorado, we are tackling a similar challenge to last year’s building of the Guinness World Record for the Largest Sticker Ball, now known as Saul the Sticker Ball. In creating Saul, it took 177,466 custom stickers and labels to set the record. Now, we aim to raise that amount and more in money for Children’s Colorado.

Our goal is to raise $177,466 by February 13th, 2017. In appreciation of the support for this cause, we have created a “Stick It To Cancer” sticker, that people who donate can request to receive. We want to do more than make a one time donation to this cause, we want to create imagery and a voice through stickers that will resonate for years to come to fight this disease that affects children everywhere.

Join us as we Stick It To Cancer. Donate to help support the Children’s Colorado fight against kid’s cancer and share it with everyone so the cause spreads. 

Once you have donated, or shared the campaign, just fill in a request to get the”Stick It To Cancer” sticker to promote the cause and we will send it via mail.

A Look Inside StickerGiant

SG-Inside-Look-StickerGiant

Last year was a big year for all of us here at StickerGiant. We made a big move into a new facility, hired on more staff and are printing more customs stickers and labels than ever.

We printed 5,830,365 feet of sticky substrate material, or 1,104 miles. This is up from 800.69 miles of material printed in 2015. To put this in perspective, it would take leading NFL rusher Ezekiel Elliott 1,120 consecutive seasons rushing for 1,631 yards average to equal the amount of material we printed this past year.

Given all the fun things happening here in a new factory, we put together this new video for you to get an inside look into StickerGiant. Enjoy.

Spot Color & Full Color Stickers

What’s the difference between Spot Color and Full Color printing? We put together a quick video to explain the difference.

Now, is a great time to order as we are currently running a special on Silkscreen Stickers for 15% off with coupon: SPOTCOLOR16. Just mention this when ordering to receive the discount. It expires on 11/11/2016.

You can submit a custom quote on the site here or email us directly at stickers@stickergiant.com. Pricing is determined by the number of spot colors, so a custom quote is needed.

Every sticker has a story, let us tell yours today.
