All about vinyl decals

Vinyl decals tell a story while creating memories. Our decals are cut from premium outdoor Oracle 651 vinyl. Monogram or letter decals can be used on glass, plastic, stainless steel, ceramic, canvas, metal and wood. Decals are amazing to add pizazz for personalization, walls, organization and so much more! Adding a decal to a wedding, baby, housewarming, teacher and birthday gifts makes them extra special. 

Several of my favorite gifts to give are journals, candles and vases. I buy high quality journals in a 4 pack from Costco for $12.99. For a regular size journal, I suggest a 2-3 inch monogram or name decal. The total cost comes out to around $7 each. Dollar Tree and Dollar General have beautiful vases for $1. Decal size will depend on the shape and size of the vase. Square vases can have larger decals, measure the length and width of the vase, and allow 1-1.5 inches on each side for empty space. Round vases require a smaller decal because the decal needs to “wrap around” the vase; I typically use a 2 inch decal. Costco has gorgeous flower bouquets that can be divided into multiple vases. Candles or candle holders range in prices, they look really nice with a monogram decal.
