Having been trained as an illustrator and painter, I’m not usually a fan of peel and stick decals. First, the designs are rarely well done. The stickers are hard to apply and tend to bubble on the wall. They have a shiny, plastic sheen that is…well, icky looking. Let’s not even discuss the smell of the cheesy vinyl.
And I know what you are thinking. Ellen, hello! We can’t all just rig up a scaffold, whip out a paintbrush and make a bunny with one skilled whip of a brush stroke. I know. I get it. I’ve been reminded too many times to count. I do take that skill for granted sometimes. I’ve had thousands of hours of practice; and while I’m in my “painting zone,” I just imaging everyone around me must me doing the same thing. What else would anyone want to do with his or her days??!!
This revolutionary company of peel and stick murals has created a funky, whimsical and ethical solution. That are…
From fantasy forests, to underwater themes, the designs are in a league of their own.
Mia, the creator of Pop & Lolli, was originally a Walt Disney Imagineer. After having a child of her own, her creative spirit saw an opportunity in a market where some originality and ingenuity was greatly lacking.
Pop & Lolli decals are printed on fabric with non-toxic paints in the USA (I love when I can say that.). There are no PVC’s, which are in many other vinyl products. Just to give you a quick education, PVC plastics release toxins into the air on a daily bases. Do you know what they use to stabilize that issue? They add lead. Really? Really?
And as a final bonus Pop & Lolli uses only water-based adhesives.
