Brief history of the company

In 1935, American inventor and entrepreneur Stan Avery built a machine to make stickers. Avery’s invention was funded by his future wife, teacher Dorothy Durfee, who provided 100 dollars for the cause. To build the labelling machine, Avery used a motor from a washing machine, parts from a sewing machine and a sabre saw.  

Stan Avery’s inventions allowed labels to be applied quickly and easily to a variety of surfaces. He laid the foundations for the modern production of labels and stickers.
