It was my idea to come up with customized stickers for our weed containers.
I work in the dispensary, one of seven different establishments in the city.
One thing that has proven difficult is to make our products stand out from the others. If I am being honest, all of the local cannabis dispensaries are very similar – they sell similar products at similar prices, and all have the same hours of operation. Because of this, it’s difficult to make our shop stand apart from the rest. That’s why I thought that adorning our marijuana containers with custom-drawn artwork would be a small thing that could yield big results. We have a couple of different artists on staff, because this is a cannabis dispensary and it seems that every dispensary has a few artists on staff. Artists love weed and hate having jobs, so the cannabis dispensary is like a magnet to them! It was easy to convince both of these people to work up some sketches we could turn into stickers to put on all our cannabis containers. We don’t use ziplock bags, of course, we are not the high school marijuana dealer. We mostly use plastic jars, which can hold up to an ounce, so it is a perfect surface for a colorful sticker, depicting our store logo on a marijuana leaf. With the right sticker, every one of the hundreds of cannabis containers we distribute every week will become little advertisements! We will also give out free stickers to any customer of the cannabis dispensary who wants one for their car
