Yeah? That's, like, €6.

These were getting pushed pretty heavy a few months ago and last year. Cool, but too pricey for me.

There are cheaper designs out there. I put the dreamland design by undoboy up in my apartment and it really makes a huge, blank wall come to life.

I can not stick this on my wall, it's made of electrons!

I love the undoboy city scapes. Also, should be noted for threadless fan boys that they've had their own line of wall decals (and wallpaper) for a bit. But I guess if you're a fanboy you already know that.

There's a lot of other cool things on the original link (this mirror for example), but with a domain like .fr, I'm sure shipping would be a beast too.

Mister_A: turn your monitor around and peel off the back. sometimes its a pain so you may need to fold it a little to get the corner off.

I bought one of these wall stickers. What a giant pain in the ass to put up.

They're a lot cheaper at etsy. I love the line up, abstract sunrise, wall branches, and the simple monogram.

Man, slow day on the blue, huh?

We have blik decals on the wall in our bathroom, and also on our car. They're cool.

ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR MUST BE DESTROYED!!!

Seriously. I am so weary of this aesthetic.

I expect centuries from now the 50th Edition of Art Through The Ages will refer to this chapter as "The Era of Vector Vomit."

Haha. I'm going to buy the black and white Hieronymous Bosch cat wedding one and stick it in our living room. My fiancé's gonna kill me.

This is awesome, in it's lameness. In the seventies my parents had a big decal on the door to the laundry room that read "door" in a bold black and white graphic. So grow out your side burns, buy some harvest gold appliances and relive my youth with these decals.

What if you never grew out of the stage when you had Michael Jordan and Bo Jackson posters on your wall? There's decals for you, too.

Some of these are very cool, but it's somewhat of a bummer that they're not reusable once you remove them. Or are they? Any hacks for reusing them?
posted by lord_wolf at 9:42 AM on May 13, 2008


It's okay, I guess, if you like art.

I was actually contemplating asking in the green for this, but does anyone know where you can buy this material to make your own?

Huh. They're like giant snowboard graphics for your wall.

I like the "naughty little women" design; the rest are teh meh.

These are great. I've always wanted to live inside superbad.com.

I got some for my wall from Blik. They are way more awesome in my opinion.

I have these 2 in particular. (Panda) (mermaid)

Or you could put giant people on your wall.

Anybody had any luck using these as a mask when painting? I don't know how I feel about giant vinyl stickers, but I like the idea of slapping one on, painting, then peeling it off.

That was my first thought, too. Some quick googling brings up this and some stuff from HP as well as others. This tutorial uses wallpaper and glue (which I wouldn't want to try, but looks rather easy), and some others which use vinyl. None of those tutorials are very extensive, though. Looks like I'll be doing some experimenting!

Be careful, vinyl contains phthalates.

I used to do this with black construction paper and scotch tape. Sometimes I'd put a grid on a photo and use that to enlarge it, other times I'd just freestyle an abstract pattern thing. It worked okay for college, but definitely won't have the 'finished' look that these do.

Some of these look supercool. We just renovated the basement into a rec-room, and I think I might look into some wall decals. Anyone know how they hold up over time? And are they easy to apply? I am, as they say, not DIY inclined. Also, a bit of a spaz.

I used to just tack favorite comic books onto my bedroom walls (in bags, people, no need to panic!), but these look substantially more awesome.

Stuff like this makes me wish I had a room of my own to mess up. -sigh- It might be a while.

Alternatively, hire a child and give it a box of magic markers.








(I kid. These are cool and those undoboy designs in particular are just fabulous, sweetie.)
