Strongarm Brewing Punches It Up

Strongarm

While our digital press makes it super easy to print stickers in full glorious ever loving color, sometimes you want to go back to basics with good old black and white, like this punchy Strongarm Brewing design. B&W stickers look great with pen and ink artwork.

Need to add a little more pop? Our technology makes it easy to switch to a two-color design, for those cases when you want to run black artwork over a background color other than white. Switching to different tints and colors is a snap. (Take a look back at the Honey Dewdrops sticker design for some inspiration.)

Strongarm Brewing is a Nanobrewery Producing Craft Brewed Goodness. Their signature beer is Torque IPA, "a perfect balance of hops with hints of floral and citrus notes." Ivy League Blonde Ale and Magnus Oatmeal Milk Chocolate Stout round out Strongarm's trio of regular offerings.

Strongarm's seasonal beers include:

  • Der Commissar Bittner Oktoberfest

  • Cincinatus English Strong Brown Ale

  • Sleeveless Flannel Shirt Irish Red, and

  • Cataclysm Imperial IPA


Okay, so I got really thirsty writing this post. How many hours until beer o'clock?

I'm thinking new rule ... to properly describe a brewery's offering, I need to actually sample the goods ... :)

Dipped in Chocolate

Chocolate

There are few things in life as universally loved as chocolate. And few refrigerators that are unadorned by magnets. While we can't help chocoholics out with a quick fix, we can surely fix you up with a splendid magnetic admission of your affection for the tasty treat that owes its very existence to the mighty cacao tree.

Why Chocolate? Because Chocolate Can't Get You Pregnant. So go ahead, my friends, and freely indulge the Chocolate Slut that burns within you. I might go to hell for writing this stuff, but you're only reading it, so I'd reckon that you're off the hook.

StickerGiant offers a burgeoning supply of refrigerator magnets. So many, in fact, that we want you to think of us as your ever-loving beast of fridge magnet burgeon. When it comes to stuffing your family's stockings with graphic witticisms, do not dilly-dally. Venture forth into our pages of magnetic wonder.

We hope that you take undue pleasure in freely affixing these magnetized statements to the stalwart kitchen appliance that endlessly cools your supply of food and drinks. They will make you so happy and peppy each day that you will burst with joy. In this case, that joy will be chocolate-dipped. Win win, if you ask me.
