Icon Wall Stickers asked if I'd like to try out one of their designs, so I thought this would be a perfect way to see if I could add some fun to our dated & dreary classroom. This UK based company offers a wide range of vinyl wall art - quotes, kid's art, seasonal decorations, custom designs & just about everything else.
They have some seriously cute things for kid's rooms:
And some great Mom quotes for the rest of the house too:
I picked the lemon yellow & medium size. Mine arrived less than a week after I placed my order. It came in a long rolled strip:
I found really useful that each design was available in loads of colors, including metallic finishes, to get nearly any shade you want. They even have a swatches available so you can see the colors for yourself to make sure it's exactly right.
The biggest plus for me was being able to select size. While there are a number of vinyl art companies out there, most offer their designs in a single size. And yes, there are die cutting machines to cut your own, but those max out at 1-2 feet high, so large scale designs aren't an option. Icon Wall Stickers has a huge range - the design I chose started at x-small at 3.5in by 19.5in & went all the way to a gigantic at 35in by 196in! And if you're not sure on what size or color will look best you can send them a picture of your wall and they'll mock it up and email it back to you. How cool is that?
I decided to use ours on the plain closet doors - the blandest thing in the over-wooded room. I cut the six "subjects" apart and staggered them on our closet doors:
I followed Icon's directions for removing the backing one section at a time:
I was a bit worried about air bubbles since that can be an issue with vinyl, but their transfer paper was nice & firm so it made it pretty goof-proof. I smoothed things out with a credit card and not a single bubble!
The designs look nice and sharp & the color really pops against the wood of the doors:
Now we've got some color that keeps the wood walls from swallowing up the room and adds a fun schoolroom touch:
And it represents all the subjects we study: math, science, history, reading - even French my college major!
I'm so please with how it turned out. I'd definitely use them again. With all the images, quotes, fun designs of all sort - there's something for every style and for minimal effort. And the prices are pretty reasonable too. Thanks for solving our ugly paneling problem Icon Wall Stickers!
I was not financially compensated for this post. I was sent an Icon Wall Sticker to review. The opinions are completely my own, based on my experience.
