We just entered The StartupNation Home-Based 100 Competition and would love your vote!
StartupNation is a great site by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs and is a huge source of information for startup businesses. Below is a summary of our entry. We entered in 2 categories-Boomers Back in Business, and Most Innovative!
We would of course love the exposure that being a winner of this competition would give Wall Dressed Up. What a great way to let more people know about this fabulous new decorating product. We would really appreciate your vote! Help spread the word about these wonderful mural transfers! Thanks!
Wall Dressed Up manufactures and sells mural transfers that you simply rub onto your wall!
We started Wall Dressed Up last fall after several years of research to find just the right mural transfer product for our business. We are two artists/moms coming back into the business world with a mural product that easily rubs onto your wall, almost like a tattoo!
These transfer murals simply becomes part of your wall, just like a thin coat of paint. This is not a sticker! Every original brush stroke and shadow is reproduced in high resolution detail and shadows make the artwork pop! All you need to do is rub it on the wall! You can now beautifully decorate flat or textured walls, floors, ceilings, furniture, mirrors and more without even a single drop of paint!
We are thrilled to be starting this business and taking advantage of new technology to promote and sell our affordable murals. We feel this is a great and inexpensive way to add mural artwork to as many walls as possible. We have our website, blog and are also selling our murals on Amazon. We have a few boutique stores who carry our murals and are busy building the business.
We would like to be considered for the startupnation Home-Based 100 Competition as we have gone from a kernel of an idea to the start of a thriving online business. We opened less than a year ago, in October of 2007. We are 2 artist/moms, living in different states, who searched for 2 years for this thin-as-paint transfer printing. The printing technology itself is amazing.
It was a childhood memory of a rub down transfer coloring book that sparked our first thought of combining printed transfers with our mural art.
We learned how to build a website ourselves, get our product manufactured, and came up with the start up funds to open and market our business. We used many resources and ideas here on the startupnation website (it’s a great source of ideas and information) as we progressed along the many steps of starting a business.
Thanks for considering Wall Dressed Up for the Home-Based 100 Competition!
Vote for us here! Thanks!
