Matt Allen: The Ice Cream Man has been traveling to concerts, music festivals and events all over the U.S. for several years to follow a simple dream: to give away free ice cream.
The operation is founded by Matt’s imagination and funded through advertising, sponsors, promotions and merchandising. “I want to give away ice cream. It’s that simple. I can’t be the only one who thinks this is a good idea. Why not bring all of these like-minded people together to do great things?”
Matt recently visited Jakprints… Slingin’ Cream, Livin’ the Dream:
You can follow the Ice Cream Man at http://icecreamman.com/ and on Twitter
The event began as small festival at a bar in Tulsa to help co-founders Tom Green and Angie DeVore-Green and their band Ultrafix win a Jim Beam/Rolling Stone Magazine Best Unsigned Band Contest.
Since then, it has evolved into a 2 day music festival and conference that brings together professionals in the music industry, music enthusiasts, and emerging artists from across the U.S to celebrate diversity in music.
This years event is sure to be another success – featuring over 160 artists on 13 different stages with headliners including Cake and The Black Crowes.
The festival also offers educational panels, clinics and a tradeshow where you can take advantage of networking and resource opportunities in the music industry.
And for the first year in the events’ history, a Yoga conference sponsored by Whole Foods Market will be incorporated into the festivities. (Talk about diversity!)
As a sponsor of the event (we printed the programs for this year’s festival – make sure you get one!) we are proud to attend and hope we see some of you there!

When Cheryl and Kara (of KC Candies) knocked on our door, they were brand new company with a great idea. They definitely could “walk the walk,” but came to Jakprints when they needed to “look the look”….in marketing terms. The three of us sat down in the Jakprints conference room and the ladies decided that a new cohesive packaging and logo was what was required to take them to the next level….paper stickers for their plastic bags, pink t-shirts, banners with stands and embossed business cards!
For the design portion, I put them in contact with Jesse Burhenne–a very talented freelance designer (Art Buffet) who also works in the Jakprints Pre-Flight Department. The three of them worked together on these exceptional packaging concepts that you see in the video. Those projects were then expertly fabricated by Jakprints! The women were very happy with the results, and we couldn’t be prouder of the two of them! Congrats, and we wish them all the luck in the future!
