Hello sticker enthusiasts, sticker lovers, and sticker needers! My name is Kristen, and I’m a 28-year-old extrovert that has not been able to settle down in one place, well, ever. A little background -> As a kid I spent a lot of time back and forth between mom and dad, New Jersey to St. Louis and back. Once I hit college, I was a free spirited artist in Philadelphia who loved spontaneous trips to where ever the money in my pocket would take me. I spent time with so many different kinds of people and kept an open mind about life in general. I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design and no desire to grow up just yet. I spend the next 5 years hopping to different locations all over the country; Vermont, Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Vermont again, Teton Valley, Idaho, and surprisingly enough, Vermont…again (do you see the trend here?)
On my most recent move to Vermont, I reached a point in my life (I’m almost 30, I better be reaching that point) where I finally felt like I wanted to settle down. I wanted to get a good full time job and finally have a place to call home again. I came across an ad in the newspaper for this sticker company looking for a customer service and quoting manager. First of all, I LOVE stickers, second, I love people. Customer service comes second nature to me. Needless to say, I e-mailed over my resume and the next day was called to schedule an interview. From what I understand, there was some tough competition, but I was offered the job! (Awesome, right?!)
So here I am, two full months in, and LOVING it! I work with some of the friendliest, most laid back people I have ever met. Not to mention the love of stickers that we have in common. In this short amount of time, I feel as though I have been welcomed into this family with open arms. What a tight knit group of people to work with. We have our ringleader, Jeff, handling everything from our awesome StickerMobile project, to rebuilding the website, to you name it and he can do it. Then we have Chris (ringleader number 2) who is such a caring, friendly person. She handles orders, re-orders, quotes, and whatever else is passed her way. John, who happens to be Chris’ husband, who also has great taste in music (his Pandora almost always plays classic rock hits…which is awesome); is one of the designers here at Websticker. He’s also our in house I.T. guy and has an answer for just about every question I’ve had about my computer. He’s working on rebuilding our website and he puts together some of the videos that you see on websticker.com as well. Every once in a while, our sense of humor is on the exact same sentence of the exact same page. So cool. Brian is our head sticker designer here. He’s your regular, laid back, Phish loving, yoga practicing, sticker loving, super friendly guy. He always gives a heads up on easier and better ways to get tasks done, and is really understanding about any situation with stickers. He’s the “go-to” guy for most of my questions.
I can’t understand why somebody WOULDN’T want this company to produce their stickers. I feel like we are the most thorough and helpful group. If you ever have a question, we will explain the answer until it makes perfect sense to you. If you ever have a problem with your stickers, we 100% guarantee them and will take care of it. If you don’t have a high quality file or a rough design for your sticker, we can help you out with the design process, and most of the time, it’s free!
I think my favorite part of the job so far is being able to see the sticker designs first (you guys are so creative)! That, and being able to see some of the designs go through the process and become an actual sticker. I’m so proud to be a part of the process and to see the outcome. Driving around town and seeing a sticker that you had a part in making is AWESOME!
I think its safe to say, I’m more then happy to settle down and finally be able to call Vermont, “Home”.
This is definitely on the top end of my list of coolest jobs ever. So go ahead, give me a call or drop me an e-mail! I’d be happy to give you a quote on any sticker you’d like to have made! Give us a buzz and say hi! Ask how the weather is in Stowe, Vermont today (I have a window seat, I’ll be able to tell you first hand)! I can’t wait to hear from ya!
