K2 Stickers (with Love)

I sent out a whole bunch of sticker requests to various companies last year and I was always a little disappointed that K2 was the only one who didn't respond...
Well, I just got the mail after I came back to Univ. and I thought I'd share since it's a bit humorous.

"They're late but they made it!

What happened was...

In an attempt to stay on top of the environmentally friendly game, we sent our beloved riders Shaun McKay and Gretchen Bleiler out on a mission to the Artic tundra in search of nature's stickiest, most reliable adhesive on earth, an adhesive fit for a K2 logo. Turns out, the sap produced from cotton grass was just the solution.

Get this; polar bears eat rodents; rodents eat cotton grass. Rodents can digest cotton grass and its sticky sap and polar bears cannot. Cotton Grass sap (via rodents) clings to the esophagus eventually choking Mr. Polar Bear.

Devastated by their findings, Shaun and Gretchen developed a process of extracting the sap from cotton grass thus relieving Mr. Polar Bear of his sticky predicament.

So... not only now will your stickies stay glued to your board after years of surf turnin, pow slashin, and 1800 spinnin but you can rest assured knowing that by supporting K2 and our sticker production you are directly saving the lives of millions of baby polar bears. Congratulations!

But seriously, if they don't stick very well just hit us up for more.

Thank you for your patience and believe me your stickers came with love from the Artic.

(Insert Picture of cute baby bear with mother here)

Sincerely,

K2 Snowboarding"

Haha, yeah. Mailed an envelope with a self adressed/stamped one inside. Each one cost about 66ish cents. Got them back from every company I sent them to (Ride, Burton, SkullCandy, Smith, Scott, Volcom, and now finally K2).

Company's love it because it's cheap and easy advertising, and hey, I get almost essentially free stickers, haha.

p.s. Forgot to send a letter to Atomic... damn.
