jeff-daverman-daughterSince the beginning of time, we as humans have had an innate desire to convey our message and tell our stories by creating stunning and compelling visuals. Why? Well, for one, art has a way of stirring the soul and evoking emotions that might otherwise lay dormant. The mediums we might choose to use are as varied as the images we create; what matters most is the untethered soul that seeks expression. At Custom Sticker Makers, with every order we process, we celebrate each and every one of our customer’s unique creations – as well as our own opportunities to create through the expression of art.

Taking it to the Streets: Chalk it Up! Prescott 2014

Remember your own box of chalk and drawing hopscotch on the sidewalk along with fun and silly doodles? Street Art, in and of itself, is nothing new, dating back 1000s of years. Here in beautiful Prescott, AZ, we’re celebrating our own unique art celebration this weekend with the 6th Annual Chalk it Up! Street Art Festival; a family friendly event intended to foster and support the creativity in people of all ages and abilities. What’s more, we’re super excited that Custom Sticker Makers owner, Jeff Daverman, was chosen this year as one of their four featured artists. Jeff knows firsthand the passion that drives artful expression and is super stoked to share his unique expression with the community. “I really am honored and excited to be a featured artist at Chalk it Up! this year. For the last 4 years, I’ve had the opportunity to create side by side with my daughter, chalk art runs in the family. Chalk It Up! is such an important, family friendly event that fosters connection to community through art. Here at Custom Sticker Makers, we’re really proud to sponsor such a fun and worthy cause.”
