Silicon Valley Roller Girls: Code by Day, Crash by Night

Silicon Valley Roller Girls sticker

Hailing from the heart of the technological universe, the Silicon Valley Roller Girls (SVRG) are Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) members with three teams in the fray - the Dot.Kamikazes, the Killabytes, and the Hard Drivers.

The Silicon Valley Roller Girls home battleground is San Jose Skate, at Blossom Hill Road in San Jose. Here's their upcoming summer schedule:

  • Saturday - June 22
    Dot.Kamikazes vs Duke City The Munecas Muertas
    Killabytes vs Undead Bettys

  • Saturday - August 17
    Dot.Kamikazes vs Central Coast Roller Derby -SK805
    Killabytes vs Monterey – Beasts of Eden

  • Saturday - September 28
    Dot.Kamikazes vs Humboldt – Redwood Rollers
    Killabytes vs Shasta Roller Derby – Assassins


SVRG's two-color stickers are in-your-face, with bold black-and-white artwork over an alien green field. They're a must for every fan.

While there are those that say roller derby girls are a different breed, could they really be from a different planet? Or perhaps not human at all? Extraterrestrials? Cyborgs? Both? You make the call!



Code by day, crash by night!

The Sin City Rollergirls: So Fabulous It Hurts

Sin City Rollergirls

Las Vegas may be well known for the Sport Books in its casinos, but it has precious few professional sports teams of its own. Enter the Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls, filling the gap “with 60 mintues of intense, competitive roller derby, combining the speed of NASCAR, the hits of the NFL, and the offensive/defensive volley of the NBA.”

The Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls are members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association and are a skater-owned and operated LLC. They have two travel teams (the All*Stars and the Black Spade Betties, a.k.a. The B Team) and four home teams (The Flying Aces, Hoover Damned, Notorious VIP, and Tommy Gun Terrors).

StickerGiant proudly printed a pair of wicked cool stickers for the Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls: a classic circular chip and an awesome adhesive bandage design that looks to be just big enough to cover a small bruise.



The Tattoo is Temporary, But the Bruises are Real



[Dear Readers, we no longer offer retail products, but we do offer an awesome website too order your own custom sticker.]

Our customers send us some remarkable photos of our products out in the real world, but we'd be hard pressed to find a more awesome shot than this temporary Texas flag tattoo in action ...

Here's how I wear my StickerGiant temp tattoo!  Playing roller derby with the High City Derby Divas out of Aurora Colorado!  It's my little way of representing my home state of Texas while living in Colorado. For the past two years I've ordered these temp tattoos to wear at all of my bouts!



Thanks!

Atlanta Rollergirls



Whether you're an old-school blocker or more of a jammer type, if you've always dreamed of serving up hell on wheels the Atlanta Rollergirls are your kinda club.
In November 2004 the national resurgence of Roller Derby inspired Atlanta Rollergirl’s league founder, Angela Ward, a.k.a. Tanya Hyde, to put a call out to strong, athletic women to join her in bringing Roller Derby to Atlanta. As founding members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the Atlanta Rollergirls are helping to promote and strengthen independent women’s sports. We are skater owned and operated and comprised of women who do this not for big contracts but because we love it. Each of our skaters brings their own skills not only to the track but also to the running of the league as a whole. We are our own accountants, promoters and marketers and strive to be “roll models” to young women and girls by demonstrating how successful women can be as both athletes and businesswomen.

Right on, Atlanta Rollergirls! You're awesome roll models—keep up the good work! And we hope to see you in the Olympics someday, if the IOC can be convinced. Speaking of the Olympics, the 2012 Summer Games are coming up fast. Hard to believe, right? They're right around the corner...if you live in the U.K. And if you're lucky enough to get a ticket...or are good enough to—you know—go to the Olympics. A little modern pentathlon, anyone?
