The countdown to Fall is beginning. As Fall fades into Winter, temperatures will drop and people in our city without a place to go will be the first to feel it.
In an effort to lend a hand to our less-fortunate neighbors, DCS is teaming up with Heroes for the Homeless for a sixth year of collecting warm clothing items. Heroes Seattle will then send their team to key locations to deliver helpful winter gear.
Family, friends, clients, and people we haven’t met yet: clean out your closets, because we need your donations.
Here’s What We Need:
-NEW Wool Socks
-Men’s, Women’s, AND Children’s Items
Where to Bring It:
The DCS Sticker HQ
503 S. Michigan St. in Seattle
We’ll be accepting donations all September long. To learn more about Heroes for the Homeless and their outreach programs visit HeroesForTheHomeless.com
DCS just welcomed an extremely unique member to our sticker family. A small order of well-designed Vinyl Die-cuts was enough for us to stand up and take notice to their unique efforts.

Core Surf has been a DCS customer for several years and in that time they’ve been able to explore the depth of applications for stickers.
A perfect example: these Digital Die-cut Sticker with Matte Laminate created for the sole purpose of product labels. Heavy-duty, stickable, no glare, and ready to write on with a Sharpie (or similar marker).
