Charly Bliss | Sweet ’17

The team at Barsuk Records was kind enough to reach out to us for Charly Bliss logo stickers to coincide with the release of their new record Guppy and we were more than happy to oblige. If you’re not already familiar with this power-pop 4-piece, you’re about to be.

In the midst of arguably their most successful year ever, Charly Bliss has been included in Rolling Stone’s list of 50 Best Albums of 2017 So Far, lauded by The Fader and The A.V. Club, played in-studio showcases at Seattle’s own KEXP, and dropped a total of 3 music videos.

Here’s one now:

Catch Charly Bliss on tour all summer long in a city near literally everyone, even you. Grab a sticker (so we can make more), start a dance party, and gram it like it never happened.

Huge thanks again to Barsuk Records for helping us help them support independent music.

Vigorground Fitness | Removable Wall Graphics

Jeff the Installer (our top installer) braved the drizzly, overcast streets of Renton, Washington as he headed over to Vigorground Fitness to spruce up their workout space with some inspirational wall graphics. We tagged along to document some of the process, so make sure you scope out the video above and keeping reading for more details.

Two materials were used. The white inspirational message was laid down with a simple plotter-cut Transfer Sticker aka a Vinyl Die Cut. Section by section it was positioned and then released from its Transfer Tape to create the effect of a painted design.

The second piece was digitally printed in full-color onto a material with a low-tac adhesive, allowing for light repositioning and easy removal. If you have ideas about decorating a space with wall graphics but balk at the thought of damaging paint, we can help.

Huge thanks to Luka and the Vigorground crew for the opportunity to show off a little bit while also injecting some personality and inspiration into their impressive training facility.

KAVU | The Big Bang Boom Sticker Pack

Our friends at outdoor lifestyle brand KAVU always do things with a certain level of awesomeness, so we weren’t totally surprised when they dropped this amazing stop-motion video to promote the release of their ‘BIG BANG BOOM’ Sticker Pack.

The video was filmed and edited by Dan Holmes, featuring music by Matt Millet. Here’s a few words by Dan on his process:

“There was no post effects used in this, it was all done in camera OG stop motion style. I used all things on hand: scissors, folding stickers, creasing stickers, and little post-it notes folded up underneath credit cards for example. I used a SONY A7R2 tethered to my computer for remote shooting then the frames were auto-imported into Lightroom so I could view the video basically by rifling through the images shot.”

Total number of images: 425
Shooting time: 5-6 hrs

You can pick up the ‘Big Bang Boom’ Sticker Pack now at KAVU.com, which includes 11 stickers in 2 application styles.

Fat Ski-A-Thon 2017 | High Fives Foundation

Check out the recap for High Fives Foundation‘s 2017 Fat Ski-A-Thon fundraiser!

High Fives provides grants to mountain sport athletes suffering the effects of life-altering injuries. They also teach safety courses and advanced decision-making training at schools locally in Vermont and across the US.

When all was said and done on March 5th, High Fives reported an estimate of $193k+ in online donations nearly hitting the original goal of $200k in a single day. Skiier and snowboards took hot laps under sunny skies to inspire support and encourage donations. The next day, an anonymous donor pledged $7k which allowed High Fives to reach its incredible goal!

DCS is proud to support the efforts of the High Fives Foundation and we are humbled & astonished at the amazing difference they make year after year. Be sure you watch the event recap video, check out the photos, and find out how you can get involved in supporting a great cause.
