Sneak Peek at the Newest Designs

I have been busily creating beautiful new wall lettering designs. We’ve got about 35 new wall word designs that are ready to go; we just need to put them in photographs and add them all to the site. So here’s a sneak peek at some of the new wall decals, which should be online within a week. How exciting!

Je t'adore is French, meaning "I love you" or, more literally "I adore you".

This beach themed phrase is adorable and evocative. Can't you just taste the ocean?

A play on the "Keep Calm and Carry On" posters, this is the sweet lover's version.

An adorable quote which would be perfect above a crib or child's bed.

So these are just four of many new wall vinyl quotes. Check back this week to see the newest creations. Enjoy!

Why Did I Start Wall Written?

A sign at the entrance of the Disney Animation Pavilion, Disney's California Adventure Park, Disneyland Resort.

Seven years ago I was on my honeymoon at Disneyland. I was young, playful, carefree. The kind of girl who would dance around a crowded street to music only she can hear. We walked into the Disney Animation Pavilion, and I caught my breath. Rooted to the spot, I had to gaze longingly at the beautiful sign, which was about 5 feet tall and 9 feet wide. I studied it. Could not take my eyes off it. My new husband waited patiently while I checked it out up close, examining every painted dot and fantasizing about the day when I would have painting skills and a dark blue wall.

Unfortunately, that day never came. My painting skills are not much better than those possessed by my 6-year-old son. My walls are all beige, and the idea of painting a mural in a home I don’t plan to live in very long sounds heartbreaking.

So when I came across the concept of vinyl lettering, this sign came into mind. I had to have it. In fact, I felt that it would be the first thing I would create. I wouldn’t be able to trust my treasured project into the hands of a stranger who might butcher it. It had to be made by me. It had to be gigantic. And it had to be gold. But, being so intimidated by the perfection I required, I began designing other quotes. My project was put on the back-burner, and I never did create this huge masterpiece.

It has now been three years since I started this company, and while I’ve made several Fairy Tale Quotes, I still haven’t made my magnum opus. Whenever people ask me why I got into the business of vinyl lettering,  the “Once Upon a Time” mural flashes before my eyes. I did it because this sign made me smile. Because words can captivate, express personality, evoke a feeling.

Bonus: I don’t need painting skills to express myself with my decor, (and I can change my mind over and over).
