One of our top local event sponsorships of the year is happening tonight, and it's yet another sell-out edition. Ignite Boulder is one of the largest Ignite Talks communities in the world, and this 34th version is loaded with fun talks and short films. Oh yeah, and our new matte stickers will be on site at the beautiful Boulder Theater for the organizing team to promote their event.
Sticker design helps a brand stand out
Their matte sticker design has the perfectly cut shape with no backing, a main feature of our die cuts. You can see the Ignite Talks branding (sparks flying from the word Ignite) and location tag for Boulder as the foundation, which is a powerful image. The matte finish helps the sublimated background display the mountains of Colorado and signify this iconic setting.
More about Ignite 34 and thanks to the organizing team
Since this is a long-time sponsorship and members of our team attend the event, we wanted to give a gig shoutout to all of the folks behind the scenes that help coach speakers, prepare the slideshow, promote ticket sales, assist with ushering and much more. Ignite Boulder is 100% volunteer-led and organized by Glider, a local community group. It truly takes a village to pull of these types of events, so thanks to all of those folks. Ignite Boulder gives away any profits they make to 501c3 nonprofits. Let them know if you are up to something amazing and can use their extra funds.
Traditionally, the Winter Ignite is known as Winter Ball or "Nerd Prom," and when folks gather the getups are all over the map, as you'd expect from Boulder, Colorado. There's the ugly holiday sweater, the full ball gown, and of course, the shorts tuxedo. Truly, a range of fashion that are all perfect for a night of geeky fun.

Ignite Talks is a fast-paced geek event started in 2006 by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. Since the first Ignite took place in Seattle around 10 years ago, Ignite has become an international phenomenon, with Ignite events produced in Helsinki, Tunisia, Paris, New York City and over 350 other locations in between.
Ignite’s mission is “Everyone Speaks.” We believe that public speaking builds confidence in individuals and that events like Ignite build community. Our goal is to make it possible for anyone, anywhere, to learn to present their ideas and their stories.
Ignite Boulder Matte Stickers make a spark
Since Ignite Talks are all about sparking conversations, it's only fitting that there's photo and video commemorating our first sparks coming from matte stickers. This happens when the roll passes through our laser die cut machine. As the laser traces the path of the sticker outline, it's zapping all along the edge. It's a really fun process to watch as the stickers all come out at the other end of the machine where they stack up, like you see in the photo above.
