If you’ve spent any amount of time in Jackson, you’ve probably come across the influence of Our Jackson Home. You can spot it in the big “Greetings from Jackson, Tennessee” mural gracing historical downtown that reflects a recent community-wide swell in Jackson pride.
Our Jackson Home launched in 2014 when a couple of Jacksonians came together to create a podcast about their city. This project eventually spiraled outward into a flourishing blog, a newsletter, and the tri-annual Our Jackson Home journal. Our Jackson Home’s motto is “to celebrate the people and the stories of the city we love” and they embolden the community to do the same with free events such as A Night of Storytelling, which shares local stories and music, and 731Day, a city-wide celebration of Jackson.
A fun way for Jacksonians to rep their love for their city is with Our Jackson Home’s merchandise. Sayings such as “Jackson Grown,” “Stay 731,” and “West Tennessee is the best Tennessee” adorn apparel for all ages from onesies for the newest addition to soft sweatshirts that’ll keep grandma warm. The shop also features plenty of home items such as Jackson and West TN map prints, screen-printed totes, campfire mugs, and more.
One popular collection is the OJH stickers, which display Jackson’s city seal, OJH’s motto and logo, and “Stay 731.” They’re perfect for repping your Jackson pride on a laptop, a water bottle, and more. And if saying it small isn’t your thing, there are large vinyl Our Jackson Home bumper stickers so you can, as their website says, “ride in style.”
Though many of OJH’s products are made in house at theCO, a local non-profit coworking space, Our Jackson Home prints its stickers through the online company Sticker Mule. Sticker Mule specializes in custom printed items including device skins, coasters, magnets, buttons, labels, stickers and more. They pride themselves on great customer service, ease of ordering, and fast service. Once you upload and submit your design to their website, you’ll receive a proof of your sticker within four hours. After that, you can request as many changes as you want for free until you approve the proof. With free shipping worldwide, Sticker Mule’s fast turnaround means you can receive your order in four days.
Our Jackson Home sells custom vinyl and die-cut stickers, which happens to be Sticker Mule’s speciality, starting from just $2. If these stickers, or any of OJH’s products are calling out to you, don’t worry, they’re easy to obtain.
Our Jackson’s Home’s merch, including issues of the journal, is available online at ourjackson.com/shop to be shipped directly to your door. Want to see the products in person? Check out their brick-and-mortar shop inside theCO at 541 Wiley Road.
