Monday Make-Itz

Let's make a Sticker!

Greetings crafters! I'm back from a week of spoiling the California branch of the family!
Thursday we toured the Mrs. Grossman's Sticker Factory in Petaluma, California.
Check out their Website for more information: www.mrsgrossmans.com

When we arrived we were 'greeted' by none other than the founder herself!
Mrs. Grossman was leaving the building as we were coming in--she  said
'How about this for a welcome!' She even had her dog Molly with her.
I call this a 'Forrest Gump' moment since she is now retired and only comes in about once
a month. Had we been 5 minutes later, we would have missed her.
Her son Jason is now CEO of the sticker and label companies.
We also met Jason! 
Due to the recession and digital crafting, the main focus on the company
is now Wine Labels. We were not allowed to take pictures where wine labels were being
printed because of copyright infringements.

The factory is located next to a bird sanctuary.
Mrs. Grossman's was 'GREEN' years before other companies.
Every step of the process is reused or recycled.

There is a walking trail around the water.



This heart is what started the company. It is the signature sticker.
Through out the factory are examples of every sticker ever made.
Rolls and rolls of stickers waiting to be repackaged and shipped out.


An article on display about the company.
