It all started with a sticker…
Sticky Media is a full production house specialized in large format printing, signage, millwork and artistic ingenuity.
The racing scene
The team started during the height of Montreal’s car racing scene in the late 90s, with the company founders acting as avid pioneers of the culture. This rooted passion inspired them to begin making decals for car aesthetics and then became a small-scale operation for personal accounts and small businesses in the basement of these young professionals parents home. As recent business graduates, these two young entrepreneurs maintained their corporate day jobs and worked nights and weekends at an aged kitchen table with a small sticker machine fulfilling small scale orders with minimal equipment.
From this point demand grew enough to open their first small store under the name “Sticky Grafix” in 1999
In 2003 they re-branded as Sticky Media having gained a small but loyal customer base, it was time to either go big or go home. As partners, these inspired entrepreneurs were the ideal link between creative passion, commitment to quality and business strategy. They motivated each other to pound the pavement and take the business to the next level acting as sales men, production and installation technicians. With complete devotion the business grew and did so quickly.
In 2006 another move was needed and they opened their first production house of 12,500 sq feet now joined by several skilled employees (who still work there today). At this point they invested in modern technology and word of mouth spread. As demand grew, the workspace became smaller and soon this new space was already bursting at the seams.
In 2012 Sticky Media strapped their printers and equipment to yet another truck and moved again, now with a full team of young and dynamic employees. After extensive renovations this new building was strategized to allow seamless communication between all departments so all projects are handled in house. Now equipped with 30,000 sq ft of high level production and office space, they offer a wide range of creative resources and solutions, such as all types of large format printing, POP displays, car wrapping, signage, mill work and custom projects incorporating craftsmanship expertise for retail environments and trade shows for both commercial and private clients.
