The National Park Poster Project: Successfully Funded!

StickerGiant helped to successfully fund The National Park Poster Project

StickerGiant loves to help small businesses, independent entrepreneurs and creative artists with their endeavors when we can. We love our home state of Colorado and we truly enjoy helping fellow residents, which is why we recently contributed to The National Park Poster Project campaign on Kickstarter.

We're happy to report that the project was successfully funded! This means that the National Park posters from the 1930's and '40's that were started and never finished will now have a place in America's hearts as Rob Decker works tirelessly to finish the art he holds so dear. As a personal study under Ansel Adams, Decker has a special love for the National Parks and now we can all share in his heart's endeavors.

Following your dreams is something we should all be working towards, which is why The National Park Poster Project means so much to StickerGiant. We're so glad we could help this project come to fruition!

Are you ready to share your passion with the world? We can help! Start creating your own world-class set of stickers, and one of our Sticker Experts will get them to you in no time!

 

Warm Your Feet This Winter with XOAB Socks

StickerGiant contributed to the XOAB Kickstarter campaign

New socks feel awesome, we all know that. There's nothing better than slipping your little tootsies into a brand new pair of all-American, handmade Merino wool socks, especially on a fristy-frosty winter morning. XOAB knows how to make that warm wooly feeling stay with you all year long, and they're sharing their secret with you.

According to the XOAB website, their wool is "sheared in America’s western heartland and spun in South Carolina. Long staple cotton from California’s San Joaqin Valley, made into yarn in Georgia. Dyed in Pennsylvania, designed in San Francisco, and knitted into elegant, comfortable socks in the hills of North Carolina." I don't know if there's any definition of Made in America better than that.

XOAB recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign, and StickerGiant was one of the contributors. We believe in hard work and high-quality products, too, and are happy to support entrepreneurs who have a really great idea that needs to be pushed forward. Our CEO, John Fischer, recently received his perk for contributing to their campaign and, man - these socks are awesome! Funky, quality toe cozies that add a bright pop of color to any outfit. Pretty groovy!

Do you have a small business that could benefit from a sticker campaign of your own? You're in luck! Click here when you're ready, and one of our sticker experts will prepare your logo or other information for a sweet sticker, custom-made to order.

 

madelife Helps Make Your Artistic Dreams Come True

StickerGiant produced these awesome stickers for madelife

Boulder, Colorado is home to a lot of really cool things - beer, bears and beautiful views, to name a few - but it's also an artist's creative paradise on earth. To support all of the great local talent that is flooding the community and surrounding areas, madelife provides a productive safe space to work from and find other collaborators.

With 6,000 square feet of open space, madelife is on a mission to support all artists and creative entrepreneurs by giving them access to the tools they need to succeed in their craft. To help get artists on their feet, they provide a gallery, black-box theater, sound studio, and collaborative work space, as well as offer a number of art shows and musical performances on a monthly basis. Listen to their podcasts, check out their shop or  contact them to set book a gig or get more information. Awesome!

StickerGiant has a great relationship with madelife in two ways: first, we helped to create this sweet sticker that celebrates the culture of creativity and is pretty dang eye-catching, if you ask us. Secondly, our creative director, Alan Peters, works closely with madelife to coordinate gatherings and teach others the art of graphic design. We all work together to create a sense of community and belonging in a world that's often lacking compassion. Come join the fun!

The words you're reading right now wouldn't be possible without the help of a programmer, the unsung heroes of the internet. Unless you're a developer of some essential part of our internet experience, learning a programming language can seem as impossible as resurrecting Sanskrit in your hometown. For those that live and breathe web development there's a conference just for you.

Ruby is "a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write," according to their website. Rocky Mountain Ruby is a single track software conference centering around all things Ruby, held in Boulder Colorado September 24th through the 26th at The Boulder Theater. The great part about the conference is that it's not just talks - there's also an outdoor experience for all attendees, too, so you really get the most out of your time. 

Now in its fourth year, Rocky Mountain Ruby seeks to connect Ruby developers and enthusiasts  from all across the world in a three-day, fun-filled adventure of information. The event will have awesome speakers from several different industries, great workshops and a chance to make lifelong connections. Their custom stickers are just one awesome reason to attend - look at all that fantastic artwork!

Get Your Thinking Caps Ready For TEDx Boulder

tedxboulder

For those not in the know, TED talks are a great way to educate yourself on a number of topics. TED Talks are sort of like apps: Want to know more about electronic dance music? There's a talk for that. Interested in learning about apartheid and how it affects the world? There's a talk for that. TEDx Boulder is a local event that promises to be as funny, smart and educational as its big brother.

Started in 1984, TED was a conference for people in the Technology, Entertainment and Design industries to get together and discuss new developments, interesting thoughts and whatever else struck their fancy. It's since expanded to include science, business, politics, music and more, and now the latest development is the addition of the "X" at the end of its name. While not big, that little x gives TED people the power to independently organize a TED event while keeping what TED stands for.

All of that exciting, informational fun is coming to Boulder, Colorado September 27th at the Macky Auditorium Concert Hall at the University of Colorado Boulder. StickerGiant is proud to be not only a sponsor of this fantastic event but the provider of the event's stickers! That's right, your's truly will be attending the TEDx Boulder event so you know it's going to be fun. Make sure you get your tickets now so you don't miss any of the incredible action and don't forget to grab one of these super cool stickers! Connecting people with common interests, one sticker at  time.
