Sticka

Interesting program. There is a kiosk in front of the movie theater that can take graphics files and make stickers out of them, like you find on car windows and the like. Usually one of the characters from Calvin and Hobbes peeing on something, or else praying in front of a cross. It seems to require more specialised equipment than someone would want to have at home. I can see how it would be a great setup for someone to have at a convention though. And now that I think about it, I have never seen anyone with this setup.

While in front of the theater I saw a table setup with three theater employees sitting at it hawking memberships a freguent movie goer club. It as free so I got the card for it. In addition to periodic rewards like snacks and tickets you also get free popcorn on Thursdays. Since that is one of my days off that will work out nicely. Wish they had this last week, or even yesterday, but it's nice to have it now.

Is it an automated kiosk or is there someone on hand to make sure that the printout is acceptable? I'd like to hear more about this, or if you catch the name of the operation or the equipment manufacturer I'll see if I can't look it up on the web.

There is an actual operator

I'm not even sure the software is anything all that special, it didn't look like much more than paintshop. But I did notice in the title bar it's called "Sticka" something. What mainly seems to be special is the printer that was used. Something specifically made to do transfers to the sticker material. I did an internet search and could not find the software, but I did find the printers offered in several places.

Here you go

Here are links for both the printer and the software used. It looks like you can even download the software for free - I guess s an incentive to buy the printer used.

Actually this is "Regal Crown Club" whcih is probably much the same thing. They ahve the only theater left in town so that's where we would be going to see everything anyway.
