Sometimes, art can be the written word itself; from time to time, saying the right thing can have a more profound effect on a person than a picture, and it doesn’t even need to be a thousand words. But let’s face it…most people who like to use words in this way often have a lot to say that cannot be communicated in just one statement. And some folks like to speak their feelings not through their voice, but through script, and said writing can be in the appearance of vinyl wall stickers.
Don’t be fooled by a name like “wall art stickers” – this doesn’t guarantee the stickers are going to contain artwork per se. These removable wall quotes can be plain text or decorative text, and can go on pretty much any household surface. You might like to place a “Welcome” decal near your front door, or a “Welcome to Dreamland” above your bed’s headboard. But just like you can make a collage out of images, you can make a mélange of words and text on your walls; cover all the walls in your home with words if it’s what you would like to do, as the placement of words (based on font, size, and color) itself can be an art form. And since letter stickers can be moved and reused, you can experiment with placement on the walls before choosing a permanent spot.
An example of text design might be to write out a large excerpt from a book that you love; have the quote extend from one end of the wall to another. If you’re religious, you could have a prayer of protection written across a wall in your living room. If you have a child whose room is an absolute wreck, you could put a decal on their door that is a disaster area warning. Creativity knows no bounds. If you’re going for a creepy theme in one of the rooms in your home for Halloween, why not put up grotesque messages that look like they were written in blood? It doesn’t even need to be an actual message you want to get across; you could easily just cover a wall in words that you like.
You don’t even need to limit yourself to your native speech; do a little research and check out words in other languages. A very popular form of expression through art is the use of Asian symbols. Kanji symbols are especially well-liked for tattoo designs, but you will definitely want to double-check your research and make sure the symbol says what you think it says before sticking it on your wall. Lots of people are content to have just a Japanese symbol on their wall because they feel it looks nice, but they may be totally ignorant to the symbol’s actual meaning. You might think your statement of choice reads “Home is where memories grow” in Japanese, when it actually says, “There’s bodies in the wall; call the police”. And believe me, there is no shortage of online sources at which to find Asian-themed removable wall decals.
Of course, if you are unable to find removable wall stickers that match your preferences, there are quite a few internet stores that will create the design of your choice. There are plenty of great websites that do custom wall decals and vinyl lettering.
