Blik and other purveyers of peel and stick wall graphics have been raging for a while now. But we think text is a cool idea, too, and one that is more personal and customizable.
Wallwords is an online service for ordering pre-pasted and pre-spaced transfer letters for walls, wallpaper, windows, mirrors, furniture and metal. The site allows you to order pre-loaded words or sayings or to create your own, specifying typeface, color, finish (matte or glossy), and size.
The letters arrive pre-kerned (spaced) on a tape strip, which you then press against the designated surface and leave in place by peeling away the tape. Burnish and you're done. Wallwords are removable but not reusable. Wallwords' website says most of their preloaded quotes run about $30, although a large-scale custom quote averages about $110.
Word of caution: Wallwords has its share of contrived sentiments; we're thinking of something less maudlin and more Massin.
