Something we have wanted to do for a long time is make our social channels and blog is highlight more of our community and y’all! Product shots (and our hands in them) are super fun but at the end of the day this business was built on collaborative magic. So we’re starting #TPbehindthebrand on Instagram (and we'll repost here) to introduce you to our amazing clients and their stories. Read below to meet Grit and Golden.
I’m MacKenzie, owner and jewelry designer of Grit & Golden. I started G&G a little over two years ago after taking a beginner bench jewelry course. I immediately fell in love with the craft and being able to create quality jewelry that mixed my tomboy style, vintage southwestern design, and a touch of femininity. Today, all of my pieces are handcrafted out of my Southern California studio.
Not only do I love making jewelry, I love being a business owner. From day one I knew I wanted G&G to be a little more than jewelry, I wanted it to be a vibe and a memorable brand. However, that part was always a struggle for me and that’s where Tower Press came in!
I found Tower Press on Instagram when they were first starting up and I knew right away they were a company I wanted to work with. Since then, Tower Press has totally helped take my business to the next level. They've made me business cards, many holographic stickers (customers literally ask me for these), a logo stamp, and a few months ago, Jessie created a full branding package for G&G. The branding package was a huge investment for me, but completely worth every penny. I am always impressed with the quality and design that these women strive for, and I feel like I’m talking to my best friends when discussing projects.
The Tower Press women continue to make my little business feel like a million bucks and I love being able to support a fellow female owned business.
We put holographic printing on the map, and since then we've been looking to expand our rainbow stocks. We dream of those simpler days at the skating rink when sticker vending machines were all the rage!
Our new prism rainbow stickers are reminiscent of those retro parties. These small holographic mosaics are their own light show, and change vibrancy in different elements. As always, we do not charge extra for custom die cut sticker shapes. Pricing also includes full color printing (even white!).
update: this position has been filled, thank you all!

In late February of 2018 I left my job of nearly 7 years. I had a routine, knew what to expect every single day, it was easy. I could do it with my eyes closed. But that was the problem. I wasn't being challenged. I was bored. On top of that, I wasn't appreciated and I wasn't being paid fairly. It took a long time, but I was finally able to see that I have value, and if I'm not being valued where I am, I will go somewhere else. So, with very little planning and very little money, I decided to start Tower Press. I didn't do it alone though.
Leela of Native Bear was imperative to those first few months, agreeing to help front a website template and first month's rent at our current location in Georgia. Her initial investment allowed me to take a big leap of faith. I am not kidding when I say I had NO backup plan. I probably only had a few hundred dollars in my bank account. But, I trusted myself and I trusted in my abilities. Going from knowing what to expect all the time to NEVER knowing what to expect any of the time was very, very scary for this Type-A individual.
But, here we are! We did it! We crossed the threshold to the one-year mark, and that's huge! And I didn't do that alone either. That is all Y'ALL! 327 clients spread across 4 different countries. I am grateful for each and every one of you who choose to work with us. Tower Press has really turned into a wonderful community of badass go-getters that I am inspired by every day. We've definitely had to change a little and adapt along the way, but I love this baby business, our commitment to putting the client first, and always offering the most creative services we can.
I don't always have "it" together. Nearly every day I am learning something new about being a businesswoman and better human. There are days I have big cries at my desk and days where I feel like we're on top of the world. I'm thankful for every teaching moment this business has given me, and can't wait for the next 365+ days. I have a lot of BIG goals for us, see you along the way!

Sometimes seeing is believing. So many of our clients are out-of-state and unable to stop by our Atlanta Printing Studio to see our quality up and close and personal. Sure, everyone can say their product is amazing but how can you be sure?
We put together a sample pack that includes a dozen (sometimes more) examples of our most popular services -- sticker stocks, business card stocks, postcards, art prints, even enamel pins. You'll find our famous holographic and foil examples too!
All Tower Press Sample Packs are $5, and proceeds go to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and aims to seek justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Shipping is free!
Relive those past Lisa Frank memories by making your own custom sticker sheets! We can print these at any custom size (though we recommend 4x6) and on either our standard gloss, metallic, or holographic stock (by request).
Fit as many different designs on a sheet as you want! This is also a great option for product labels since each label easily peels off the backing. We love seeing all the creative things you come up with!
Browse all our fun sticker options, and remember that we don't charge extra for die cut shapes!
Since their inception in ancient Egypt (seriously we owe them everything), stickers have been all the rage in all things advertising. While our holographic option is really popular, we also offer thick, durable glossy vinyl.
Our standard vinyl stickers are thicker than *the other guys* because we believe in offering the highest-quality possible! Most shops offer paper stickers or a 4mil vinyl. Our standard stock is 6mil vinyl, and we also offer a 12mil upon request. A glossy UV coating makes them last even longer in the outdoor elements.
Something even cooler? We don't charge extra for a custom die cut. That means you get the same great price, no matter the shape. We also offer low minimums for most of our services.
When we first launched our holographic vinyl stickers, we didn't expect such a huge response. We mostly were just really excited to find something pretty to look at every day. Although it should come as no surprise -- they're so special! These custom stickers have been such a fun service to offer. Creativity definitely knows no bounds with these!
This specialty holographic sticker stock changes vibrancy in the light, making your stickers as unique as you are! We use a thicker vinyl than most online sticker shops, making these truly durable. They're also coated with a weatherproof varnish meaning you can slap them on your laptop, car, or water bottle and they'll withstand normal wear and tear (but hey, please read our FAQ when using any of our stickers for product labels). If you decide to use this stock for packaging or product labels, just let us know in the comment section of your order, and we can print them on sheets (like shown below) for no extra cost.
Add a full color design to your stickers for even more pop! You can even specify if you want certain colors to be a "knock out," and where you want the holographic to show through. That's what makes this process so much fun! With Tower Press, our goal is to always elevate your brand or business so that you stand out even more. We know it's tough out there!
The *BEST* part about all our custom stickers is that we do not charge extra for custom die cut shapes. We don't believe in price gouging, especially with small businesses or individual creatives. A fair price, high-quality, and unique process is what we believe in.
