Working Toward Zero Waste

Since its inception, the sticker industry has been at odds with large waste output. We make leaps and strides with formatting in order to minimize the amount of wasted vinyl but unfortunately processes inherent to sticker production leave behind a lot of unusable materials.

In order to combat this, we partnered up with Waste Management to ensure that nearly all of our production waste gets recycled on a weekly basis. Roughly 90% of masking, vinyl, and backing materials skip the trip to local landfills and get repurposed into new products.

We wholeheartedly encourage the rest of the industry to join us in working toward a zero-waste goal. Check with your local waste management services to see how you can make an impact.

Laminates Explained

Digital Die-cut Stickers are great exhibition of unique designs and custom shapes. We protect those designs using a heavy-duty Laminate that comes in two styles: Matte and Luster.

Matte Lam

This Laminate will make your colors soft and muted with less contrast and almost zero glare.

Luster Lam

This Laminate mimics a semi-gloss finish. Rich, deep colors but tends to attract glare.

Luckily both Laminates feature Abrasion-protection, UV-protection, and Water-resistance at no extra cost. Now that you know the differences, it’s time to start experimenting with your projects. Request samples and a quote now and get inspired.

*Apologies to Wellspent Beer for the upside down sticker placement. It’s the thought that counts, right?

Heroes for the Homeless | Clothing Drive 2016

Summer is over in the Pacific Northwest.

That’s a tough pill for most to swallow, but the days are visibly shorter and temperatures are already starting a slow descent. While most folks will retreat to their homes or start to add layers to their wardrobe, the homeless citizens of Seattle begin to layer up pensive fears & anxiety over the impending weather change.

Now’s our chance to help Heroes for the Homeless ease the burden of life on the street for our less fortunate neighbors. All September long we’ll be collecting warm clothing donations to be passed out directly at homeless encampments around the city.

Clean out your closets and join us Sept. 8 – Sept. 30 in trying to make winter a little warmer by dropping off items at our South Seattle HQ or arranging donation pick-ups.

Drop Off Location
503 S. Michigan St.
Seattle, WA 98103

What We Need

Winter Coats/Waterproof Jackets
Winter Gloves
Winter Hats/Beanies
Warm Socks
Kids Clothing
Snow Pants

Email to schedule a pick-up at your business/office.
