$25.00 / Sold Out
100 Handmade screen printed vinyl stickers of YOUR artwork!!
2.5 x 2.5 inches- UNCUT

Group Hug means: you get a sticker from everyone else on the gang run! This does NOT come out of the 100 stickers you ordered of your work- it's additional, and free :) The group hug stickers will be smaller than the gang run stickers!!
One design per gang run slot! You can purchase as many slots as ya like!
Sign up is ONLY available Tuesday Dec 26th through Thursday Dec 28th. Spots close at 8 pm Pacific Time on Thursday. Unlimited spots as long as you purchase during this time period.
ARTWORK DUE BEFORE 8 pm Pacific Time Thursday December 28th. If I don't get your artwork before eight pm I will keep the money and move on printing everyone else's artwork. Because it's all printed together at the same time, one person not sending me art can inhibit me from printing 100+ other people's work.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!!! (SERIOUSLY) (NO REALLY PLEASE DO)
(I KNOW IT'S A LOT BUT IT'S IMPORTANT)
IF YOU ARE LOCAL AND WOULD LIKE TO PICK UP LOCALLY!!! Please let me know in your email when you send me your artwork. I will drop off your stickers at CHIMPSHOP- a new fun retail space on Woodstock attached to Primal Burger. Your sticker pack will include a partial refund of your shipping in cash. You still get your stickers in a rad box. Refund will be 5 of the 8 bucks. You MUST let me know in your email you want to pickup locally or else I'll mail it. The reason you only get 5 of the 8 bucks is packaging costs keeping your items nice and pristine for pickup.
Artwork can be any shape but I'll be proportionately fitting it into a 2.5 by 2.5 inch square space. Keep that in mind and don't send me long skinny images or you will be wasting lots of your space when I shrink it down to fit. Please be advised, your stickers will arrive UNCUT- you will need to cut them out with scissors.
PLEASE... be sure to check your email the few days after the artwork deadline. If there are any changes that need to be made or the file format is wonky I'll need to be able to contact you. Vector PDF, 300 resolution scan or digital artwork saved in Jpg would be great. Tif is fine. So is PNG. Don't send me weird web files like Gifs, DON'T pull your artwork off the internet. I'm not responsible for forfeit spots due to corrupt files that will not open.
Please email your artwork to email@example.com and include the name you paypalled under so I know which address goes with which artwork. Even if we've worked together before- please include all your info- just makes things quicker for me :)
Remember- if your artwork is pixelated when you send it to me- it will look that way when screen printed- send me high quality files!
Send me BLACK AND WHITE files please. Screen printing requires a clean black and white image to expose to the screen. After exposed- we can print with colored inks and on colored vinyls- but the original sent image does need to be black and white. No pencil shading, no pencil at all. Black ink is best for scanned images. If you want to establish gradient- use cross hatching or dot shading.
Be sure your image does not have tons of fine detail- screen printing is not like digital- I cannot get super tiny lines. Please be sure to check your email within a couple hours of mailing me your image in case I ask you to send me a less detailed file or have questions.
I am adding shipping charges to every order- 8 for US and $24 for Abroad. Sorry my abroad peeps, they've been raising the prices for abroad shipping and it really is getting nasty. All gang run packages will now be mailed out in a rad little box that is screen printed by hand. The boxes will not only look cool but help ensure the stickers arrive safely.
If I forget to send my artwork- why won't you refund me?
Sadly a few ruin this for the rest. When I began doing gang runs a few years ago, I would refund people when they forgot to send me artwork. This taught people it was okay to purchase slots and then decide later if they wanted to do the run or not. Many people banked on the fact that they could get their money back and the amount of time I spent collecting and entering their information into my log sheets and setting up templates to only be shafted in the end is not something I can do over and over. Accountability is important, and I only want serious people involved in the runs.
Why don't you cut out the stickers?
I have a sticker cutting machine, but it requires wide margins of blank vinyl space, registration marks, and specific restrictive vinyl colors and ink colors. It wastes a lot of material and take a very long time to feed each sheet individually into the machine. It would drastically increase the price of the runs and the amount of time to finish them if we cut them out. It would also render a lot of the creative themes we do completely impossible. Keeping them uncut maintains a low price point and a quick turnaround- not to mention cool unique themes.
Why can't I send you images pulled off my instagram page or the internet?
When you upload an image to to the internet, like via social media, the image is automatically compressed to a smaller file size and resolution. It may look crystal clear on your phone but when I zoom in to begin getting it "print ready", it is very very pixelated and loses tons of detail. Crystal clear screen resolution is 72 dpi, crystal clear print resolution is 300 dpi. So send me original scans or digital files that are 300 resolution :)
