A custom print and label company is establishing operations in Cherokee County with an $18 million investment.

Sticker Mule will build a facility in Gaffney that is expected to create 50 new jobs, according to a news release from the Upstate SC Alliance.

Located at Meadow Creek Industrial Park, Sticker Mule is building a new 100,000-square-foot facility that will accommodate additional production capacity to meet increasing demand, the release stated.

“South Carolina’s business-friendly environment, talented workforce and proximity to our growing customer base are key to our future growth plans, and we look forward to increasing our presence in the Cherokee County community,” Sticker Mule officials said in the release

The expansion is expected to be complete in 2024.

Sticker Mule creates custom stickers and decals, offering fast turnaround and easy ordering services to customers worldwide, the release stated. The company also specializes in labels, magnets, buttons, packaging and more.

Cherokee County continues its hot streak, as the announcements comes on the heels of Chicago-based Glenstar and Glen Creek Capital announcing plans to invest $415 million in a big box development project with around 3.6 million square feet of space at Cherokee Commerce Center 85 in Gaffney.

Colliers South Carolina, which is handling leasing for the $415 million project, says industrial demand is driving new development in the Upstate and expanding the boundaries of the Charlotte market, making the I-85 corridor in Cherokee County more attractive to industrial prospects and the companies that serve them.
