    Hi, strange request this one

    It's something often seen on home decorating programs and in magazines
    Phrases etc transferred onto wall

    How are these done and where can you get them from ?

    I'm after either a chorus or a few lines from "bring me sunshine" to out on the wall of our soon to be started nursery room for baby due in may

    eBay, home stores, etc

    We got some House Rules for the kids, some dandelion clocks for the stairs, some Russian dolls and robots for the play room.

    Oh and some Star Wars Clone Wars for lads bedroom and fairies/flowers for the lasses.

    Damn, never realised we had so many!!!!

    Am sure someone will, at a fair cost though. I guess it is all about setup costs then volume of sales really.

    We have a couple, "Welcome to our home" in the hallway in a scroll and above the bed we have Aerosmith lyrics "I could stay awake just to hear you breathing Watch you smile while you are sleeping, while you're far away and dreaming" quite ironic as I'd gladly smother it with a pillow in reality :D

    We got ours off the bay you peel the back off, stick it on the wall, rub it over then peel the other bit off leaving the stencil on the wall, easy really

    Do you have the seller you used ?

    I definatley think im after the sticky backed / transfer kind rather than DIY as i know id bugger that up

    Im thinking

    But I guess size / cost may be an issue so maybe just

    You could also try a local sign writer, they would be able to set whatever you want in whatever font you want in whatever colour you want, cut it out on their plotter on some vinyl and give it to you in the way that arenaman above describes. You could even save some pennies and supply them a print ready PDF.

    Great choice of song as well, one of my favourites :)

    If you do decide to go down the route of a sign writer and would rather supply them with what you want but don't have the facilities to make a print ready PDF PM me and I'd happily do it for you :thumbsup:

    We've recently bought one and it's just a normal vinyl a sign writer would use. Most would cut it for you and it shouldn't cost a great deal either.
