StickyTiki creates fabric wall decals, beautiful stickers made from original artwork which you peel and stick to your walls. You can move and rearrange them countless times, take them with you when you move, tell stories with the kids or create a new look every day. It’s truly unlimited!
For more than 10 years, StickyTiki has been crafting every element of the wall decals, from hand-painting the original artworks to printing and packaging them in-house. They also collaborate with other New Zealand artists to bring customers a wider range of designs. With many of the designs you can see the brush strokes, giving a painted-on look for your walls. Combining stunning colours with the best quality materials means that once up in your home, they look simply stunning.
Decals are all produced in Rose Wells's home studio in Christchurch. Rose, who has owned StickyTiki since 2014, scans the artwork and then uploads it to a special printer which prints out the design and then cuts it out with computer controlled precision. They are printed onto a fine self adhesive fabric which has a lovely texture. The adhesive doesn’t change over time, so there is no limit to how long you can leave them up. There are StickyTiki customers who have had decals up for over 10 years and are still delighted with them.
The fabric is PVC free and can biodegrade over time in the environment. They won’t rip, wrinkle or damage your space and they adhere to any non-porous surface – they can go in or around corners or even ceilings. StickyTiki can be repositioned and moved countless times. If they stick together, you can gently peel them apart. They are washable, so those sticky little fingermarks can be wiped away easily. They are even weatherproof, so can go outdoors.

Established: StickyTiki was founded in 2008.
History: StickyTiki 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, the business was sold to Rose Wells.
Rose has always enjoyed indulging her creative passions. From a young age she was encouraged to draw and paint, and her mother taught her a range of handcrafts. She studied art through high school, and then went on to become a graphic designer.
Since taking over the helm, she has expanded the range with new birds and children’s designs in her own unique style. She also works with other local artists and licenses their work for her decals. This enables her to bring her customers a wider range of work, and support New Zealand artists with another outlet for their work.
Products: A wide range of quality wall decals for nurseries, children's bedrooms and other uses. Recent designs include Dinosaurs, Mermaids, Kereru, Bunny, Aroha, Whanua, Dolphin, Penguin and Rainbow.
