Having Fun with 3D Door Stickers
Mister Midnight, a pal of FACTOR168 Creative Event Company, sent us a link to an outfit that is producing a ‘trompe-l’oeil’ styled wall and door stickers that provides a sensational 3D-ish effect. At first we were a tad skeptical but they are actually really cool.
We are already buzzing with the huge opportunities that these could present with an events and exhibition setting. Or for that matter – the office.
Here are just a few examples of these 3D sticker decales in use. We agree with Midnight, who on earth wouldn’t want to have a secret tunnel behind a bookcase leading up into a a secret laboratory, workshop or study. We would!
The online suppliers Couture Deco from the USA advise that they are washable, UV resistant, highly durable, and probably most importantly – fire resistant. Big ticks all round. The only thing that is not so great is that you apply them with regular wallpaper glue which in itself is not so bad except pretty much everyone here at our studio have had disastrous experiences at home doing this. Size? Pretty standard sizing however they can of course be adjusted for a specific spaces by simply trimming with scissors or a stanely knife. Apparently they are dead easy to remove.
Costs? At the time of this post – USD$279 plus shipping… so certainly not cheap and probably better suited to more permanent fitouts like cafe, restaurants, office spaces, and the home… but if budget does allow then from an event point of view – the results would be… as one of our younger staff members is want to declare – ‘well wicked’. Which we understand is a good thing. haha. hmm.
This company also produces other assorted decales that have really strong creative event usage possibilities. We are particularly excited with the ‘bird cage’ imagery. Kinda cool. And at USD$109 plus shipping, a little more manageable. Can also be applied to glass which is v.cool.
These 3D stickers can be sourced from Couture Deco. And a special thank you to Midnight for the reference.
