Chopwood Mercantile in Crested Butte

SG-Crested-Butte

A store that leaves you feeling like you've known the owners for decades. That is what is waiting to be found in Crested Butte, Colorado where the Chopwood Mercantile lives their passion.

Chopwood Mercantile's mission is to carry the best goods, that they wear themselves, and to put smiles on people's faces. They want to interact with guests that come in to look around and find out how thew can better equip them for the journey they are on. They have an assortment of outdoor gear for all seasons, as well as Crested Butte branded attire and accessories.

Our personal favorite is their vintage design made custom die cut sticker. It's in the shape of the mountains listing all the activities that make Crested Butte "Colorado's Year Around Vacation Center" and can be purchased at the Chopwood Mercantile as a souvenir from your adventures while in town.

In the words of the Chopwood Crew, live your passion. If you can express that with a sticker, even better.

Red Mangrove Kayaking

SG-Red-Mangrove-Kayaking

It's super low temperatures in Colorado this week, so we wanted to travel with everyone to checkout Red Mangrove Kayaking in Key West and see how they are using custom die cut stickers.

Red Mangrove Kayaking gives tourists an opportunity to take a few hours out of their schedule from running around the town of Key West to experience some of the nature the Florida Keys have to offer. The mangrove forest which is one hundred miles away from the mainland in the Gulf of Mexico backcountry is where it all begins. In a small group of seven, paddle through the Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge and take in all wildlife above and below the water. After paddling through the forests it opens up to the Gulf of Mexico with some amazing views.

Taking a wild keys adventure via kayak is immediately an experience that must be shared. That's why Red Mangrove Kayaking makes sure to distribute these custom logo stickers to folks taking their tour. It's a great way for people to connect back with the experience and regardless of where they slap it on, it immediately becomes a talking point where the Red Mangrove story is told over and over again.

Their die cut sticker is a circle shape with their name and location wrapped around the edges with a skull and 12x12 as the logo design in the middle. The 12x12 has a cool meaning behind it, explained by the owner and guide, Mitch:
"The 12×12 is actually in reference to a 12 foot by 12 inch plank that a fellow adventurist and I dragged out of the tree roots, and slept on one night during a 60mile paddle from the middle Keys to Key West. We lost daylight and tide, and had to “man vs. wild” on a clump of mangrove roots with that plank as our home for the night. 12×12 is about a continued thirst for adventure, even when it all goes wrong."

Paddle rad and slap on a sticker after.

The Rum Diet at Key West Distilling

SG-Key-West-Distilling

But where's the rum? Key West Distilling got the message and is putting it in a bottle while promoting the best diet on custom rectangle stickers.

It all started with a dream of a distillery and then looking at places, who can argue with Key West, Florida? Key West Distilling features a few different types of rum which is perfect in their tropical setting. They also distill a Spyglass Vodka and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
"Using the finest ingredients and age-old distilling processes, we create a product we know you will love. People call our island “paradise” and we know you will find some in each bottle." – Jeffrey Louchheim, Chief Distiller

In a tourist destination like Key West, stickers are a must have to get into traveler's hands. Key West Distilling came up with a great one that states "I'm on a rum diet, so far I've lost 3 days." This mixture of humor with branding makes a very appealing sticker for people to take home and slap on their cars and share with friends.

Don't let people have to ask "Where's the rum?" let a sticker tell them.

Finding New River George

SG-New-River-George

Time for some adventure with New River George at New River Gorge in West Virginia.

New River Gorge is known for some of the world's best white water rafting. They also are a place for adventure, relaxation and lots of other outdoor activities.

Given that there is a lot to do at New River Gorge, the New River Gorge Convention and Visitor Center staffed a guide to show people all the fun stuff in the area. That's where New River George comes in.

“Just call me the Steve Irwin of Appalachia,” George said. “I know this wild place better than anyone!”

New River George is an awesome guide to the area and just full of stuff... You can follow him on Instagram as he goes on adventures around New River Gorge with #FollowGeorge and #NewRiverGeorge.

This social media adventure guide had to spread the word by more than just mouth with a colorful line up of full color stickers. These custom stickers feature New River George and information on where to find him along with his companions Quinn the Peregrine, Oakey the Raccoon, Ani the Otter, and Monty the Dog.

We are so excited that New River Gorge came up with such a fun way to welcome travelers to their area and have a playful way to learn. The fun sticker designs mixed in amps up their marketing campaign to a whole new level of epic.
