Rockabilly in the desert: Catch the Hardways this summer!

Located in our Arizona home, you'll find a desert rockabilly band called “The Hardways”. They have been playing clubs, benefits, tattoo festivals, biker rallies, roller derby bouts and rodeos since 2003, and just released their second album, titled “I-10 Blues”. They will be touring the Southwest this summer to promote it.

We have had the pleasure of printing their large “calling card” stickers that are handed out to each new location they play. You’ll know they have played that venue, when you see the stickers in dozens of locations across Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, South Dakota, Texas and California.

Band member Gingher, told us that they “chose Custom Sticker Makers as our exclusive sticker printers because we wanted to support a local business. Since CSM is out of Prescott, we knew we wanted to go with them. In addition, CSM offers competitive prices and makes great stickers!!”

If you happen to love Rockabilly, and are in the desert Southwest this summer, be sure to catch one of their shows!

A Place for Bikers: Chop It and Share About It

Most people that ride motorcycles love nothing more than talking about bikes, and wrenching on them themselves. Motorcycle builders have a certain camaraderie, and the guys at have created a forum just for bikers to share their stories, ask for advice and even post photos of their builds online.

This forum is made up of custom bike builders from around the world, and it is not brand specific. They welcome all makes of motorcycles, and consider the forum “a home to those of us who want to build a bike the way we see it without mortgaging our homes”. Their motto is “Chop What Ya Got”, which is just one of the many sticker designs we have printed for them.

The guys over at have had us print quite a few different bike stickers for them, and all proceeds go back into the forum to help it grow, or are combined with additional donations that then go to charities across the world.

TCU uses Custom Sticker Makers for all of their sticker printing needs because “CSM Has excellent quality made stickers which are printed right here in the US. TCU has placed several orders now with CSM and never been let down.”
If you ride, or just love motorcycles, be sure join their forum online at

When the Powder Gets Deep : Nothing Better Than Meier Skis

Nestled in the heart of ski country, is a little town called Glenwood Springs, Colorado, and what better location for a handmade ski company to be based out of? 

Handmade ski company, Meier Skis creates top of the line skis from locally grown lumber. Meier believes that “There is nothing better than riding Colorado slopes on native Colorado wood.” They offer a  variety of skis, all while maintaining a classic look to their designs, and showcasing the beautiful wood that the skis are made from.

We recently printed a bunch of stickers for Meier, and if you have ever set foot in a ski resort, it’s no doubt that skiers love stickers. Meier uses their stickers to promote and advertise their business. Everyone loves free stickers, and Meier has utilized this fact to get free advertising when people stick their stickers around town and on their vehicles.

If you are a powder lover, make sure you check out From the bunny slopes to the steeps, they have a ski for you!

Got A Sweet Tooth? Luckee Dutch Delivers Tasty Treats

It’s the Holiday Season, and who doesn’t love all of the scrumptious homemade treats this time of year?

We recently printed a bunch of labels for family owned and operated bakery, Luckee Dutch. They feature delicious baked items with an emphasis on specialty gourmet cookies. Luckee Dutch cookies and pastries are made with only the freshest and finest ingredients available.

Each cookie is individually packaged in a sealed bag with a Custom Sticker placed on the front of the bags to identify that these yummy treats are made only by Luckee Dutch. Their custom stickers include their company logo, phone number, and website, which looks great, and help brand their business too!

After searching online for reasonable pricing for sticker products, Luckee Dutch “found Custom Stickers to have the best pricing and clear ordering instructions. And they have great customer service!”

Custom Bicycle Stickers: Levity406 has the right idea!

We have been printing  Levity406’s custom bike stickers for a few years now, and we recently interviewed them about their company and custom sticker needs. Here’s what they had to say: 

lev·i·ty  (lev´i tē), n. 1. lightness of mind, character, or behavior, esp. lack of appropriate seriousness or earnestness.
406 (four-oh-six), n.  1.  Montana’s area code.

“ ‘Levity406’ is a partnership formed as an exercise in solidarity between bicyclists. (And as a possible channel for partners, Will and Eric, to transcend abject poverty—a weird wanderjahr that has us travelling hopefully without the prospect of ever arriving.)  By applying our sociological imaginations we have come to better understand the relationship between life on a juiced up hobby horse and the built environment—five ‘o’clock traffic and all.  Specifically, we try to locate that point which lies at the intersection of bicyclists and our car culture.  It is at that point that we encourage solidarity among bicyclists by designing and dispensing articles of symbolic communications.  The medium is a billboard writ small, intelligent, simple and poignant stickers."

“Bumper stickers have long entertained, infuriated, and sometimes dismayed the occupants of the car behind!  Levity406 stickers are the logical extension of bumper stickers for bicyclists—and that’s what we do.  The three Levity406 bike stickers are our business!”

When we asked why he chooses CSM for all of their custom sticker printing needs, owner Eric,  went on to say – “CSM has been awesome!  Friendly ink,  quality stickers, quick turnaround, terribly nice people—need I say more?”

You can view and purchase these custom bicycle stickers online at:  for individual sticker sales  for wholesale (20 pack)

Teen Pulse : Teaching Responsibility Through Music

Youth performing arts organization, Teen Pulse is on a mission to teach social responsibility through the arts.  Founder Skye (‘Coach K’) Kooyman started Teen Pulse while she was still in high school to create a feeder program for her high school drumline.  In college, she went on to study music education, earned her degree and teaching credential, and grew Teen Pulse in southern California throughout those years.  She is now working on creating percussion and student leadership programs that can be completed online via Skype.

Teen Pulse has grown into a drumline, color guard, novelty percussion, stomp, music theory, and jazz improv program that travels to multiple schools in the Inland Empire.

Coach K states “By continuing to exponentially spread our reputation for guiding teens who are usually labeled as "problems" into being positively contributing citizens of society, Teen Pulse will one day be bigger than Boy Scouts.  When our alumni apply for jobs and/or college, being associated with Teen Pulse will make a huge impact.”

Teen Pulse had Custom Sticker Makers print up some stickers for them, why? “Teenagers LOVE stickers!” says Coach K, who went on to explain that she chose CSM because “Everything was pretty easy and self-explanatory and our stickers came out perfectly.”

What a way to support the youth of today! We applaud Teen Pulse for positively impacting the lives of so many young people! Find out more about this wonderful organization at
