Why Use Wall Decals?

Firstly, what are wall decals? To put it quite simply - a wall decal is basically a vinyl sticker that is applied to a wall or other smooth surface for decoration and informational purposes. Wall decals are usually cut to shape, and can range from a simple small text / wordings to more complex murals covering entire walls.

There are so many advantages to using wall decals:

  1. Great DIY home decorating option - these vinyl stickers are generally quite easy to apply and they allow personal creativity in home decoration without any damage to the walls.
  2. They look amazing - when done properly and purchased from a quality wall decal maker, these wall decals instantly "pop" and stand out. They generally bring life to a room or wallspace.
  3. Affordable - especially when it comes to decorating a nursery for a new baby, families don't usually plan to spend a lot of money on interior wall decor. Wall decals offer a wide range of design and sizes so you may choose something that will suit your budget.
  4. Versatile and Long Lasting - vinyl stickers last a long time and are not easily damaged. They are waterproof and they don't lose its adhesiveness. A good wall sticker would generally last up to 5 - 7 years, depending on the conditions. An outdoor wall sticker will generally last up to 3 years.

Decals can be used on windows, walls or tiles as branding, advertising or decoration. They can also serve as a tool to inform people that there is a glass door or window.

Wall Decals... everywhere!

The perks of owning your very own large format printer and the means to make your own wall decals? You start putting up stuff on your wall everywhere around the house! Hehe we are having lots of fun, plus it is good to test our products and make sure they look good on walls and are of the high quality we promised our customers.

"Home Sweet Home" word art cut on black vinyl placed just near our front entrance hallway right outside our production room.
Panda height chart! Looks AMAZING on our wall. Kids love it, and great use of little wall space outside Silver's bedroom.

Enoch's own little custom creation as a motivational reminder for us, placed right above our money making machines aka large format printer lol.
At the rate we are going, pretty soon every single wall space will be covered in some form of wall art... lol. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! xo Kim.

The Soft Launch of Zilvara

Firstly, I would like to apologise for my absense from the blogging world.

Secondly, I know you will forgive me because not only am I still a full-time stay home mom, I have also been working on this startup business! Thankfully, my husband is in this with me. He has been at home, working on this with me for the past month.. and it has been a crazy hectic month of production testing, designing, copywriting, planning, more planning and business coaching and more planning, and strategising, and FINALLY we launched some of our products to the world last week.

Here is our official blurb:

Zilvara is a Melbourne based printing startup company specializing in offering themed wall decals for your home or custom wall art for your business.

We use high quality vinyl stickers for our wall decal products designed to last longer and not lose its adhesiveness over time. They are all fully removable and will not damage your surfaces.

We will also be offering a magnetic wall base product which include additional activity based packs. These activity packs will encourage kids’ creativity and take them away from “screen time” by allowing them to engage in pretend play using characters and props. It makes learning fun and interactive by offering puzzles and educational activity packs, as well as offer parents an efficient use of space within their homes by offering kids activity solutions that are easily mountable on any smooth and clean wall surfaces. The magnetic wall base will also be made available in framed / board options in smaller sizes for the flexibility and portability.

For businesses, we offer a brilliant solution for custom interchangeable signage using our printable receptive on the magnetic wall base. If you own a business which requires promotional displays or information signage to change on a regular basis, we have the perfect solution. Contact us to schedule a demonstration.

We pride ourselves in offering these quality products and ensure customer satisfaction is our main priority.

So we have been pretty tied up... managing our Social Media accounts (and I still haven't even gotten some other Social Media accounts set up / active other than Facebook.. will get there), putting together a marketing kit with all the information and product brochures / flyers required to go to market harder... production is going for some prototypes for our magnetic wall product, constantly adding new products and designs onto our Etsy shop, at the same time working towards having our own website.

The list is endless!!

Starting a business is hard work, running a business is hard work, but at the end of the day you end up with the fruits of your hard labour you can be proud of. We are very new, still lots to do and plenty more steps before we get there.. but baby steps, we will get there!

So please... if you haven't already, please Like us on Facebook and check out our Etsy shop on www.zilvara.com.au and see if there is anything you like!

Or, if you require a custom quote for any wall decor projects - please email sales@zilvara.com.au.
