About Sticky Ticky wall decals
NZ made wall art stickers you just peel and stick on your walls.
For more than 14 years, we have made every aspect of Sticky Ticky – from hand-painting the artwork to printing and packaging the art decals in-house. Our decals are all produced in our home studio in Christchurch, New Zealand.
When the artwork is completed, we scan it, prepare it for printing, and then upload it to the printer. The art decal stickers are printed onto a fine self adhesive fabric which has a woven texture. Once the printing is completed, they are cut out with computer controlled precision.
Celebrating New Zealand artists
We love supporting local, so we collaborate with artists from around New Zealand to showcase their talent, and to bring you a wider range of art decals for your walls.
Wall art stickers that can be moved and rearranged countless times.
Take them with you when you move, tell stories with the kids or create a new look every day. The options are endless!
The adhesive doesn’t change over time, so there is no limit to how long you can leave your wall art decals up. We have customers who have had decals up for over 10 years and are still delighted with them.
Here is why our customers love their Sticky Ticky wall decal art:
- Kind to your walls – they won’t damage painted surfaces.
- Stick them anywhere – adhere to any non-porous surface. They can go in or around corners.
- Flexible – they don’t rip or wrinkle. If they stick together, you can gently peel them apart.
- Washable – sticky little fingermarks can be easily wiped off.
- Weatherproof and durable – you can use them outside.
Environmentally conscious wall art stickers
Our business philosophy is to source and use the most sustainable products and packaging available.
- Our decal fabric is PVC free, and can biodegrade over time in the environment.
- Most of our bags are made from biodegradable cellophane or cornstarch. We are working on finding alternative options for the medium dot and large decals.
Sticky Ticky began in Napier, Aotearoa in 2008.
It was the brainchild of Kim Hands, who has a BA in art and design and is a keen painter. She has a talent for the quirky and created all of the original decal designs. In 2014 she was ready for a change, and sold the the business to me.
I have always enjoyed indulging my creative passions. From a young age I was encouraged to draw and paint, and my mother taught her a range of handcrafts. I studied art through high school, and then went on to become a graphic designer.
After returning from my OE in London, I worked at an advertising agency and took up a painting class in my spare time. The desire for hands on creativity became stronger, and I restarted my earlier handmade candle business. Redundancy at the end of the GFC created a crossroads, which brought the decision to follow my passion and carve my own path making candles and doing freelance graphic design work.
The Canterbury earthquakes followed which brought new challenges. A year after my son was born, I decided it was time for a change. When the opportunity to purchase Sticky Ticky arose, I jumped at the chance. Experience from an earlier job meant I was familiar with the large format printer used to make the decals. This combined with the opportunity to use my artistic skills and create new designs made this the perfect next step.
Since taking over the helm, I has expanded the range with new birds and children’s designs in my own unique style. I also work with other local artists and licence their work for decals. This enables me to bring customers a wider range of work, and support New Zealand artists with another outlet for their work.
