Home Stickers: inexpensive DIY decor for store and home
Need an inexpensive backdrop for that shelf of new tabletop merchandise? How about a stick-on shelf of glassware? Or an antique silver teapot? Or a big "fluffy" stack of towels to dress up a bath and body display? Fifty-year-old French company Nouvelles Images provides these and more decorative and merchandising "solutions" with the company’s U.S. launch of Home Stickers, an inexpensive collection of wall decor sketches and photography stickers for home, retail and commercial applications. The designs include everything from flowers to bottles to lettering to juvenile images, as well as decorative work from artists such as Cedric Porchez, Kalou and Laure Girardin-Vissian. The sticker kits retail for $30 each and the entire selection may be viewed, along with a worldwide retailer locator, at www.nouvellesimagesusa.com (a limited number are also offered through amazon.com). Nouvelle Images was founded in France in 1957 by Jacques Blanc, one of the first to request artists’ permission to license their work and reproduce it for the public at large, initially in the form of postcards. Since its founding, the company has aligned with more than 1,000 artists to create 6,000 products.
