Happy 2014! Here at Custom Sticker Makers, we’re excited to embark on a fresh start, creating new relationships, fulfilling goals and assisting you, our customers, in expressing your ideas using one of the most effective and affordable marketing solutions today!

Traditionally, with the start of a new year, most everyone else resolves to fulfill new goals too. Of course, one that is on the top of most lists is to get in shape. No doubt, this is a worthy goal, however, with the start of a new year, we’re still faced with the same time constraints as we were challenged with the previous year. We’re busier than ever and finding time to go to a gym just doesn’t fit into many of our schedules no matter what time of year it is. Yet most of us still dream of how lovely it would be to steal away to, say, the tropical island of Hawaii, and embark on an island retreat of yoga, meditation, healthy foods and tranquility. If that’s you, you’ll be interested to hear about a favorite customer of ours that offers the next best thing: online yoga and fitness classes from Hawaii.
