A Brief History Of STKRS And Why To Use Us

 

The Creation of STKRS

Once upon a time, there was a graphic design business named Dogtooth, who created two websites to sell stickers, one called Wall Glamour and the other called Gadget Glamour. Gadget Glamour spawned the greatest sticker production company since the Avery Dennison Corporation (The guy who invented the sticker – check out The History Of The Sticker blog for more.)

Defining Success

 

Success can be attributed in many different forms depending on what you define as success. In this study, we are going to explore the different ideologies people have for success, how to achieve them, why it’s important to push yourself, what to do when things aren’t going your way and reaching a point of success.

 

Everybody has their own definition of success. For some it’s being rich, for some, it’s being the best, for some, it’s having a family and for some, it’s just being happy in life. Whatever your idea of success is, we believe you should always have that goal in mind, giving you something to aim for and achieve.

History of The Sticker

Introduction of The Sticker

You may be forgiven for thinking that stickers have been around for thousands of years, that in biblical times the Romans might have been sticking little labels on their swords and shields… “Augustus VIIs Non Tangre (do not touch)”  but in fact they’re not quite that old.

Brand Everything

 

Just recently we’ve adopted the statement brand everything into our marketing for our stickers, this points firstly to putting your brand on everything, obviously, with stickers  But the hidden meaning is that everything you do is your brand! The Brand IS Everything

As someone who has an interest in all things branding, I feel like, as a designer, I often need to be reminded about the intangible elements of the brand, the bits that cannot be “branded”.

Tech Nottingham Hack24 2018

 

This time last week we were sat in Nottingham town hall with hundreds of bleary-eyed builders. Builders of tech, not of buildings that is. These are some of the smartest coders, developers, and designers, Nottingham, has to offer. The challenge was, of course, the 3rd Hack24…which true to the Ronseal naming structure, says what it is on the tin. 24 hours to hack something together.

I’ve been to a few hacks before, but this was by far the biggest and best I’ve been to.

Social media for the time poor.

TLDR: Schedule posts to make social media more fun. This does get somewhat geeky, but everything used here is a simple app.

Social media is free! “Yay” we all cried back in 2007. We have this new tool, let’s go build a whole new world of customers. And we did.

We skip forward ten years and we have players that have come and gone and platforms that are swallowing up other platforms.

Love your customers

 

Before we start, I’m not saying we’re the gold standard of customer service – we’re not – but we’re trying ????

I watched a podcast a while ago by Esther Perel who was talking about “Amore”! Love between you and your other half, and she said we should treat our wives/husbands/partners as well as we treat our best customers or clients!
