Announcement    ***UPDATE ON SHIPPING TIMES AND PROTOCOL 1/24/2022:

Due to high demand on every form of mail delivery during the pandemic, SOME orders will be delayed--significantly, at times. I have no control over how fast an order reaches you after it leaves my hands. As a consumer, I have experienced this myself from even large retailers. Some orders have taken as long as 14 business days to arrive--this is not the norm, but it has happened, and the order DOES always eventually arrive. Things have been getting better. But slowly.

I am one person with a full time job (where I go in to the office, not from home) in addition to this shop, so I appreciate you allowing for a day or two for a response to an inquiry. Replies are sent M-F.

We are dealing with unprecedented times, and I have been running this shop for years and have never had delays like I've experienced in the past two years. Things have not gotten much better since the beginning of the pandemic, and I appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate these trying times.

THE DECALS:

Your source for the original "loveabull" pit bull decal!

Decal notes:
To keep things straightforward--the size of each decal is listed in the product description. You can check this size against your intended surface, and we can always cut a larger version for you, if you like.

My dog was small--she's the average size for a female pittie--about 50lbs, but she is petite. Some people seem confused by the scale in the photographs, but the decal printed there is displayed at its actual size. I think maybe people think the dog is larger than she is, or the car is larger... but both car and dog are small. :) If you need a different size, just ask!

As for whether these are stickers or decals--they are decals. All of the decals in this shop use a vinyl (plastic) base and are rated for years of use outside.

Though the terminology is debated in the industry, this well-summarized excerpt from a banner and print shop explains it well:
"“What’s the difference between a decal and a sticker?” Some of the confusion comes from the fact that many “industry professionals” aren’t clear on the matter. But it’s actually quite simple.

Before explaining, it’s important to point out that many people cause confusion by using the two terms arbitrarily and interchangeably. And they are not “wrong” because there is no single, definitive, universally-accepted source. But just like all Labradors are dogs, all decals are stickers. Not all stickers are decals, though.

It seems to be the case that sign shops and manufacturers call their high-quality adhesive adornments “decals” and the lower-priced products “stickers.” Here’s why: Both decals and stickers use adhesives. Yet decals commonly utilize exceptionally strong (and more expensive) adhesives. People don’t typically mind if a $2 bumper sticker begins to peel; they would, however, mind if their car or boat graphics began to lift from the surface. Decals need stronger adhesives.

The “foundation layer” also bears a major difference: the cheaper “stickers” use a paper base, while “decals” utilize a vinyl (plastic) base. This is the primary reason that decals last much longer when exposed to harsh conditions. ""

It's a real dog and pony show!

Here, we pretty much just adore dogs (especially pit bulls) and horses (especially thoroughbreds). What can we say? We love puppies and ponies.

We offer an increasingly wide variety of items that range from adorable decals to classy home and personal accessories. If you don't see what you want, just ask!

    I've always loved animals, and I've always loved drawing. It seems inevitable that the two would eventually meet! I also come up with plenty of random ideas along the way, so the shop grows with new sections and fun products.
