Wapuu Going Fishing for Community at WordCamp Grand Rapids


When WordPress fans unite, there's code, Wapuu and stickers, which means loads of fun. For their annual weekend, WordCamp Grand Rapids serves up a custom sticker sheet with creativity and branding in a unified package.

Grand Rapids will be hosting their annual WordCamp on the Grand Valley State University Pew Campus right on the western banks of the Grand River, where the town takes its name.

There will be three tracks that cover content, design, business and development all for the WordPress platform. WordCamp Grand Rapids has been with StickerGiant for going on five years, and we really want to thank them for keeping the momentum going in their corner of the Midwest. There's a ton of energy around web development in the region, and we're stoked for their community to gather and celebrate.

As for the sticker sheet, Wapuu is in full effect, with the cuddly WordPress mascot wrapped around a fishing bobber. There's a strong canoeing and outdoor theme going on in this sheet, with paddles, and Wapuu's floppy fishing hat. The designers also found room for the event meetup address and Twitter handle, plus hashtags that ring the border on the top. Attendees have options for application, as seven individual stickers peel off and travel anywhere due to their small size. The organizing team brought the same canoeing theme to the website, and the entire branded package is seamless from start to finish. It's this attention to detail that makes WordCamps such terrific events because it extends into the programming, the other event swag and the takeaways for those that are in the audience participating.


So to all the folks in Western Michigan this weekend: enjoy the sessions and the networking during at Atwater Brewery when the day is done!

We've been with WordCamp and WordPress meetups since the early days, and we recognize that WordPress is one of the world's most-popular publishing platforms. We love to participate as sponsors for these tech events, and if you're interested in if you're interested in working StickerGiant on sponsorships, get in touch.
