We like to talk, like a lot. Sometimes we write about things that are important to our customers. And sometimes, well we just write things because we don’t know what else to do with ourselves.

Completely Custom: Shredders

Shredders - Dangerous Jumps

It’s time to feature another custom package that we’ve manufactured here at Copycats. We have dubbed this as ‘Completely Custom’. Because well, it’s just that, completely custom. This time, we were lucky to have the opportunity to work with our friends, and yet another Doomtree Records artist: Shredders. For the inaugural release for Shredders, we added a few unique elements to really make the packaging shine. We printed and manufactured both the vinyl record and cd. There are a lot of similarities on both, but lets start with vinyl! The vinyl jacket was printed on uncoated card stock with a spot UV. Hard to […]


Designed by Copycats: Red Bull Crashed Ice Afterparty

Red Bull Crashed Ice Afterparty Square

This is a long but informative and fun story, are you ready for it? In November, we hosted a Shredders pop up show that was held at Bauhaus. We got to the design work for the promotional poster and their social media posts. Because of that success, the local Red Bull promotions team reached out to us to not only sponsor, but to design the poster and social media art for their Red Bull Crashed Ice Afterparty on January 20th, 2018. Happily, we obliged at the opportunity! We wanted to come up with a pretty detailed theme or design style to make it unique and […]

Anna Nalick’s fourth studio release, “At Now”, is a collection of pop/alternative and folk/Americana tunes that paint an authentic portrait of the songwriter’s development to date. Visceral poetry and raw storytelling are supported by emotionally rich melodies and production. The artist’s voice has developed along with her writing to reveal the depth of seductive soulfulness and strength through vulnerability that has been budding since she debuted with her multi-platinum selling solo-written album, “Wreck of the Day”, featuring first hit single, “Breathe(2AM)”, when she was a teenage songstress over 10 years ago. While “At Now” is a departure from previous albums, […]


Completely Custom: 5 Year Anniversary of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “The Heist”

Macklemore Ryan Lewis The Heist framed custom packaging

You guys! Today, October 9th, 2017 marks FIVE years since our friends Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released their debut full-length album “The Heist”. That’s what they say though right, time flies when you’re having fun? We thought that today would be an opportune time to look back on this “completely custom” package. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis really wanted to bring back the feeling of being excited about bands having a physical product. A tangible thing that you can hold in your hand. This was especially important with iTunes dominating the way people buy records. Copycats was honored to bring something unique into the world. Now, lets […]
