Early US hackerspace, still thriving, and still welcoming to all that follow Noisebridge's one rule: Be excellent to each other. Hundreds of cool geeky people visiting every week. Lots of cool people working and playing on lots of projects. Workshops and classes every day. Lots of tools. Always free.

I've bought thousands and thousands of stickers from Sticker Giant. They do great work. High quality. Decent price. And when they mess up (as everyone does from time to time), they take full responsibility for their mistakes, and take care of everything right away. I recommend them to anyone who wants stickers made. (And everyone should make cool stickers!)
