Heart in Washington is adopted by Washingtonians as a symbol of their people
Local Washingtonians, Idahoans, Montanans and Wyomingites embrace 'Heart Sticker' company stickers.
- Portland-South Portland, ME (1888PressRelease) January 25, 2012 - Recently, a group of Washingtonians utilized the Heart in Washington symbol to represent their group at a conference in Florida. The group created their ID laminates that hung around their necks and on all of their travel items with the Heart in Washington logo. They said it was the simplest and clearest message about where they were from and how they felt about their home state of Washington.
The Heart in Washington design, created by sticker designer-Chris Bucci, is a glittery green state of Washington with a white heart in the center. The green state represents Washington, the Evergreen state, the glitter of the state represents Seattle- the Emerald City, and the white heart and border represent the snow and glaciers that sit atop of the Cascade Range of mountains.
Chris struggled through several designs for Washington; a gray heart for the western Washington skyline most predominate color, and a forest service brown heart signifying Washington's relationship with its national forest. But it is the white heart and border that Washingtonians chose. "The people of Washington have expressed; they love their snowy white heart," Chris conceded.
Several other states are starting to adopt Heart Sticker designs. Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming have all had increase in consumer retail outlet in 2011 as well as increased order sizes and frequency of orders placed. "We started off with no outlets in these states [Montana, Wyoming, Idaho] in January  and finished the year with 24," said Chris Bucci, Heart Sticker Company owner. "The most exciting thing is orders grew from $50 starter packs to over $200 for most of them. It's the middle of winter for these places." Montana is an oversized deep sky blue heart signifiying Big Sky Country, Idaho's heart is red gem shaped heart because Idaho is the gem state, and Wyoming is a yellow state with a brown heart, borrowed from the famous horse and rider sticker that is commonly associated with the state of Wyoming.
The Heart Sticker Company develops local pride products that say, "I love it here" and produces stickers, buttons, magnets, glassware and other gift items that are sold at local retailers in each state. There are products and designs for all 50 U.S. states and Washington D.C.
