WHAT ARE WOOD STICKERS???
“Wood stickers huh? Never heard of that before…” Well, that’s because we invented them! We’ve been perfecting the Wood Sticker™ formula for years, and now it’s ready for prime time. Basically think of it like any regular vinyl sticker (only cooler).
Here’s everything you need to know about the product:
Are they real wood?
Yep! We start with FSC certified sustainably grown and harvested wood veneer, because Earth is a pretty cool place and we should take care good of it…
Right now we offer two wood types: maple and cherry. But there’s so much wood we want to share with you! Keep your eyes peeled for new wood types coming soon.
Wowie zowie! How do you make them?
With a giant lazor!!! Each wood sticker starts as a digital art file and then we etch/cut it with a laser CNC machine who’s name is Luke the Laser. He’s a pretty busy guy these days.
From there we go all low-tech and finish every sticker by hand. We sand it, apply a protective clear coat, give it a little smooch, and put it in the packaging.
Do they stick good?
Are they fragile? Will they bend?
Yes, they will bend with the grain but not against it. We fabricate with the grain vertically aligned. So if you gently pinch the edges on the sides the sticker magically bends! If you pinch it at the top and bottom edge (against the grain) you’re gonna have a bad day…
So go ahead and stick it on any curved surface – no problem! Try to put it on a hard surface that doesn’t flex… if you put it on something soft that flexes often (backpacks, t-shirts, cats, etc.) the wood will eventually break down.
As far as the fragility of the product, you definitely want to be careful peeling the backing off and placing the sticker. Some of our designs have very thin delicate sections. The adhesive is strong enough that once the sticker is stuck, you should be just fine. Don’t worry about wimpy wood stickers… they come from big strong trees after all.
What can I put them on?
Wood stickers work great on any hard surface so go nuts and let your imagination run wild! Here’s the “short list”…
WATER BOTTLES, PHONES, GLASSWARE, SKATEBOARDS, FLOWER POTS, LAPTOPS, BEER GROWLERS, LUNCH BOXES, SURFBOARDS, TABLETS, WINDOWS, MIRRORS, JOURNALS, SKIS, LOCKERS, GUITARS, TRAPPER KEEPERS, LAMP SHADES, VASES, SNOWBOARDS, HEADPHONES, FIGHTER JETS, MONSTER TRUCKS AND CHAINSAWS…
And here are some things we definitely don’t recommend you put a wood sticker on…
OTHER PEOPLE’S STUFF, BACKPACKS, JACKETS, PILLOWS, T-SHIRTS, THE CHRISTMAS HAM, CATS, DOGS, YOUNGER SIBLINGS, GRANDMA, PRETTY MUCH ANY LIVING THING, NUCLEAR REACTORS, HIGH TENSION POWER LINES, COP CARS AND YOUR BACKYARD GRILL…
Can I put one on my car?
Hells to the yes! The protective clear coat we put on it is made of pulverized diamonds… well not really, but it is really great at keeping moisture and preventing UV damage. And since we’re a little obsessed over here we spray it with the clear coat three times… just in case. Put wood stickers anywhere you want outside the house. It’s sort of like you’re returning the wood to it’s natural environment. You can run ’em through the dishwasher too by the way.
tl;dr – Wood stickers are bomb-proof so go bananas.
