Solution: You've found one! And isn't it nice to know Sticky Media's customers have this to say: "Sticky Media has been a refreshing resource. Sticky understands my market, follows through with what has been agreed upon, and delivers on time. In our business today, Sticky is truly an invaluable partner."
"I have been working with Sticky Media for three years; I have always been impressed with their vast POP experience and ingenuity, their excellent client relations and competitive pricing. They have no limit on the projects they perform for us anything from large format print to retail space installations. I have had many positive experiences with Sticky Media from our account management, installation teams and all members of the Sticky Media team."
