BESTeam Weekly Feature - Off the Wall Expressions

Come check out this week's BESTeam featured Etsy site Off the Wall Expressions, a vinyl lettering and wall art design company. 

Off the Wall Expressions is owned and operated by a husband and wife design team specializing in high quality vinyl graphics. They do their own unique designs and order production,  as well as local installation.

Vinyl designs are quick and easy to apply, instantly transforming your space into something special. You can use vinyl to decorate, make a statement, motivate, inspire, amuse, and organize any area. Vinyl can be applied to any smooth surface such as walls, windows, wood, glass, refrigerators, plastic, bathtubs, picture frames, and many more.

The 'Family Tree with Photos' vinyl decal is a unique way to display your favorite pictures. It measures 74"w X 73"h when applied as shown.  Apply photos to the 'frames' with photo corners or double stick tape. Swap pictures as often as you like!

Girl - Sweetness with Attitude

"Girl, Sweetness with Attitude" definition.This vinyl decal measures 22.5"w by 6.5"h. Perfect for any girls room over the bed, above a desk, or on a bare wall.

Chalk Thoughts

Use  "Chalk Thoughts" vinyl decals so everyone can 'read' your mind. Each 'chalk thought' sticker measures 12" X 10", and you will receive two!

Use regular chalk (we include a piece with every order!) to write on your "Chalk Thoughts" bubble, and simply erase with an eraser when you change your mind! 

These are only a few of the wonderful items available. Please check out the rest of this beautiful collection at the Off the Wall Expression Etsy shop and also take the time to view the Off the Wall Expressions blog.

The Creativity Bugs love the opportunity to promote other artisans including the fellow Estians but especially the BESTeam group. These friendly, talented, and very hardworking individuals work together to promote their shops and help others with marketing, advertising, and tips and tricks for running an online business. If you are a seller on Etsy, have a blog, and either FB or twitter, then you might be interested in joinging the BESTeam.
