Rocket Pig Orbits the Porkosphere


Trip off the High Line, round the northeast corner of 10th Avenue and 24th Street in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood, and you'll land in the realm of the Rocket Pig.

The what, you ask? The Pig! The Rocket Pig!

A casual one-of-a-kind eat-in and take-out signature sandwich shop featuring some of Chef Ralf Kuettel’s favorite sweet and savory treats, beers and wines by the glass.

You'll pop off your space helmet and squeal with delight with the scrumptious house sandwich: smoked spice-rubbed pork on a ciabatta with red onion jam and mustard sauce, along with a house-made pickle and a side of rocket pig hot sauce. Wash it down with a Limonata, a Dr. Brown's Root Beer, or perhaps a Fentiman’s Dandelion-Burdock Beer.

Don't forget to grab a bag of Bacon Caramels for the trek home ... and remember: political pork < smoked spice-rubbed pork ...

Now Printing: Sandwiches!

Sandwich Printing 02

I'll admit it. When I first heard that we had the ability to print sandwiches here at StickerGiant, my imagination ran away with me. First I dreamed of the fabled Chicken Salad Sandwich on Wheat Toast from Five Easy Pieces.

"You've got bread, and a toaster of some kind?"

That dream soon morphed into into a marvelously gloppy Philadelphia Cheese Steak, dripping with gooey cheese product and sizzling steak, green peppers and onions, right off the grill and smothered in Heinz catchup. Geno's or Pat's? I dunno!

And then, I woke up, realizing that we weren't able to print edible stickers (don't give the boss any ideas), but that this new fantastic capability allows us to prints clear stickers with different images on each side.

Two different images! That's like ordering half a Turkey Club and half a Sharp Italian Hoagie, all in one. This is what happens on a random November Behind the Scenes Friday, kids. Never mind the Twinkies. We have sandwich stickers!
