Greetings from Long Branch, NJ!

July 3rd, 2012

Don’t know about your neck of the woods, but it has been smokin’ hot here in Tinton Falls, New Jersey.  So, we took a little trip to the beach in Long Branch looking for some seaside breezes…hoping to cool off a bit, relax, do a little crafting maybe.  

Alas, Mother Nature was on fire here, too.  So thank you anyway, McCloone’s Pier House, for letting us park ourselves here for a tad.  But you know what they say, “There’s no place like home…(especially when it’s cool inside).”   Have a happy Fourth of July, Everyone! 

Greetings from Down Under!

Video: Dylusions meets I Love Lucy

May 15th, 2012

Ranger‘s newest Signature Designer, Dyan Reaveley, recently spent a few weeks here during Ranger U.  When she saw her Dylusions Ink Sprays being manufactured and packed for shipping in our warehouse, she decided she wanted a piece of the action!  Hilarity ensued.

Check out Dyan’s hysterical tribute to the famous chocolate factory scene from I Love Lucy!

Congrats to our “Extreme Stickling” Winner!

April 12th, 2012

Earlier this week, we asked you for some suggestions as to what Ranger's Sales Director and Stickles Enthusiast Alain Avrillon should "Stickle" next as part of his Extreme Stickling video series.  You guys have some wild ideas!  The responses were very fun to read.

Congratulations to Meme, who posted:

I think a Stickle table and chair could be all the rage! I can see it now, every Art store trying to keep them in stock. How fun to work on art at the new artist Stickle desk and chair!

Fabulous idea, Meme!  We'll keep it in mind for Alain's future Stickling exploits.  We'll be in contact shortly for your shipping details, and then a Ranger prize pack will be on its way to you!

Thanks to everyone who responded!  Who knows, maybe one of your ideas will show up on Extreme Stickling sometime soon?

Extreme Stickling: The Gnome

April 9th, 2012


Welcome to the third installment of Extreme Stickling!

In this episode, Ranger Sales Director and Stickles Enthusiast Alain Avrillon decides to give a garden gnome a bit of bling in honor of springtime!

Here's the gnome "before"…

What will he look like "after?"  You're going to have to watch and see!

So what do you think?  Will you be blinging up gnomes for your own gardens?  What would you like to see Alain cover in Stickles for a future episode of Extreme Stickling?  Let us know in the comments!  We will randomly choose a comment and the author will win a great Ranger prize pack!

Remember this?


It's that time!!

For our upcoming Designer's Challenge at CHA Winter 2012, we are giving ordinary paper mache dress forms to various designers to decorate in any way they please, using Ranger products.  In our first episode of Extreme Stickling, Ranger Sales Director and Stickles Enthusiast Alain Avrillon decides to enter the Designer's Challenge by dipping the dress form into Waterfall Stickles!

You're not going to believe the amazing results.

And if that's not unbelievable enough, get a load of the Extreme Stickling intro:

EXTREEEEEME!!!  Yes, those are Stickles.  Yes, that is Alain they are being poured onto.  NO, do NOT try this at home!! (Not that you would… but still!)

And with that, Ranger proudly presents Episode 1 of Extreme Stickling: The Dress Form.
