Home Decor Galore!

I've always been an artist, and I'm happiest when I'm making things. I'm 2nd happiest when people love my work enough to purchase it! Then I know I'm doing something right. I work out of my Chicago home, with constant help from The Intern, Murray (my pug). Two important notes:
1) I only ship within the US.
2) Flags and PVC sign orders are final. So that they can be delivered to you quickly, they go into production as soon as orders are placed. There are no cancelations or changes accepted.

Frequently asked questions
How do I apply decals? Is it easy?

Super Easy:
• Wipe wall with damp cloth
• Let wall dry, un-peel each decal and gently place it into position.
• When all decals are where you want them, gently smooth them down.

I just painted my walls - can I put the decals up now?

• Wait 3/4 weeks* after you prime/paint walls, otherwise you may damage paint when removing decals.
• Place decals on walls that have been PRIMED & painted - otherwise, when you remove the decals, you may remove paint too.
• Some VOC-free paints have been known to cause adhesive failure in wall decals, but this is not always the case. If you are unsure of your type of paint, contact us for a free test decal to try before you buy.
• We cannot give refunds due to incompatible paint or surface issues.

* the more humid your environment, the longer you ought to wait for the paint to "cure".

Are these decals only for walls?

They can go lots of places: mirrors, furniture, notebooks, frames, doors - basically on any smooth and dry surface. Get creative!!

Are these decals washable? Can I re-use them?

They are a very thin vinyl, so they can be gently wiped with a soft cloth. They are not capable of surviving interaction with moisture or water, though.
The vinyl is super thin, making your walls appear to be hand-painted. Because of this, they won't be re-usable on another wall.

Does type of paint matter?

Excellent Question! Paint type DOES matter!
• Paints that claim to be dirt-resistant, are also adhesive-resistant.
• If wall paint contains silicone, decals will not stick.
• It's best not to apply on peeling paint, or any area where there may be moisture, mold or damage under the paint.
• Paint must be dry for at 3-4 weeks before applying decals. During this drying/curing time, invisible gasses and moisture release from the paint. If decals are applied too soon after priming & painting, moisture is released from the paint, and this moisture will become trapped behind the decal. The decal adhesive could fail and also possibly damage to the paint causing it to peel or become discolored.

Do the prints come framed?

The prints you receive will be UNFRAMED. They are really easy to frame yourself - they are standard paper sizes and fit into frames you can purchase inexpensively in any craft store or online.

Can I have my own message on hand-painted cards?

Absolutely! Just tell me exactly what you want on your cards in the "notes to seller" section of your order. Please double-check spelling so there are no errors on your final product!

Can the wood signs go outdoors?

Some of my signs are perfect for outdoor decor! Each listing will let you know for certain if that piece is weather-resistant. You can always contact me if you have questions.

How do colors look in person?

Good question! Keep in mind, the colors your monitor shows you will always appear brighter than they do in real-life. That being said, it's likely the difference will not be noticeable.
