Team StickerGiant: Meet Jane

In keeping with our "Know your StickerGiant" theme, we present Jane, who operates our big beast of a laser die cutting machine. If you've printed a custom sticker with us, Jane has made sure you can peel, stick, and repeat in whatever shape you desire. We asked what floats her boat, and this is what she said.

Name & Position: Jane. I operate the machine that lasers out the stickers into the many  and varied shapes our customers request.

Time with StickerGiant: 1.5 years

Best part of the job? Working with fun/smart people who are completely committed to making great stickers and delivering ridiculously good customer service.

Hometown: Longmont, Colorado.

Hidden talent: Does wiggling my ears count?

Cake or pie? Love 'em both, but brownies are my weakness.

Number one item on my bucket list? Fly to the East coast with my kids where we'd see a Broadway show and a day game at Fenway.

Favorite season and why? Spring. Love the flowers and the birds and the bright blue Colorado sky.

Cats or dogs? A Sophie's Choice, for sure! Gotta go with dogs only because allergies force me to love cats from a distance.

The last movie I watched/book I read was: Most recently I watched Race to Nowhere, about education in America. Most recent read was The Other Wes Moore. I highly recommend both for their thought-provoking subject matter.

Favorite use for a sticker? The colorful and shameless promotion of folks' favorite beers, bands, businesses, charities, events, teams, and projects.

Prediction for 2012? Day will follow night roughly 365 times.
