Wall Graphics: Repositionable Stickers Double as Wall Art

Around here at Custom Sticker Makers, we print plenty of big stickers for businesses interested in gaining a higher profile without the costs of traditional signage. We also do regular runs of stickers for artists interested in promoting their work. Which is why we've been so fascinated lately with the phenomenon of repositionable wall graphics.

These are large stickers--on average, between 1 and 5 feet square--that can be stuck directly on walls. They work without traditional adhesives, so they can be peeled off and re-stuck up to 100 times. While there are plenty of galleries of preexisting designs out there to choose from, you can also design your own wall graphics and have it printed, just like you would traditional stickers.

Repositionable wall graphics have clear applications for commercial settings, offering the power of large signage anywhere there's a wall--at convention centers, networking lunches, and board rooms, for example. The novelty and size of these items definitely captures attention, and will work in areas where banners and board signage won't.

They also present some great applications for artists, offering the scale of an original or giclee work in an easily-displayed, affordably-reproduced medium. The images you see here are two of our favorite examples from LTL Prints. The penguin is intended for kids' bedrooms, clearly designed for a commercial market, while the second, a delightful mash-up of painting, photo-sticker and peeled-off postal sticker, hails more from the world of street art.

Alternately, smaller-sized versions of your repositionable big sticker designs can be used as laptop stickers, built to spec.
