Sticker Mule

OverviewWhen the Stickermule guys needed a highly customized store experienced they turned to Spree. Their store allows them to customize the backend order management where they've added a series of specialized workflows related to artwork approval and production.

"It's fast, simple, easy to extend and gives you total control ... That's ultimately why we love Spree."

Anthony Thomas, CEO Stickermule

  • Efficient: Aggressive page caching with Varnish
  • Fast: 139 ms GET request for an empty cache

The owners say The Spree core team is obsessive about this site speed and it shows. Spree flies and, more excitingly, there's constant talk about how to make it faster. Unlike other platforms, we don't have to do any crazy hacks to make our site fast either. It runs gracefully on Heroku with minimal sys admin overhead.
