We also run over 20 State Championship events across NSW from May-November which involve over 28,000 attendees.
Aside from regional challenge events, what are the different uses of the stickers?
Hockey NSW also manages the NSW Pride team in the national Hockey One competition. We purchased stickers from OzSticker Printing to place in our membership packs for the season. These included a bumper sticker and a sticker of our logo. We had over 500 members in our first season and they were extremely pleased with the inclusions in their pack.
How important it is to use stickers for your business?
Stickers are a cost-effective and fun way to add value to our events and products. The kids love to use them to stick to their bags, sticks and helmets. It’s a great way to share our branding and interact with our members and fans.
Where did you find OzStickerPrinting?
We found OzStickerPrinting online after comparing the prices of a few other sticker websites. They were competitive with their prices and delivery was fast and reasonable.
How do you use the products you've purchased in your business?
We purchased Art Paper Stickers from OzStickerPrinting for distribution to our athletes at our Regional Challenge event. The Regional Challenge is the largest event on the Hockey NSW calendar and brings together over 1000 kids from across NSW for a large hockey carnival over three days in February. Every player is allocated one of 11 regions depending on where they live in NSW. We purchased 11 different sets of stickers - one for each region - and distributed them across the weekend to players to wear or stick on their equipment.
Did the kids love our premium art paper stickers?
The kids loved the stickers so much that they started trading them and trying to collect a full set from other kids who had stickers from different regions. This led to a lot of fun and saw the stickers become one of the highlights of the event.
Can you see a future transaction with OzStickerPrinting anytime soon?
We found the quality and service of OzStickerPrinting fantastic and would not hesitate to purchase from them again for any future events we may run.
