HP to Offer Customizable Wall Decor Featuring Nickelodeon StarsNovember 17, 2010
Parents in the United States can now visit the online Nick Walls by HP store to create their unique designs and place an order for delivery in time for the holidays.
“HP is the only company with the ability to merge our advanced printing technology with an innovative design interface and licensed content partnerships to create an exciting new interior decor option for the home,” said Glen Hopkins, vice president and general manager, Global Media Business, HP. “Nick Walls by HP is our first customizable wall decor and we look forward to offering additional options that will satisfy a wide range of ages and interests in the near future.”
Customers can choose themes from popular Nickelodeon shows by going to the Nick Walls by HP store at www.nickwalls.com. The easy-to-use on-line portal enables customers to personalize their designs by selecting and arranging images of characters, animals, flowers, landscapes and more. In addition, the materials can be customized to fit the exact dimensions of the room while designing around fixed elements such as windows, doors and light switches.
“This product offers a fun way to make the Nickelodeon characters kids love a part of their room design,” said Leigh Anne Brodsky, president, Consumer Products, Nickelodeon. “HP’s groundbreaking technology makes it simple for parents to personalize their kids’ rooms with Nickelodeon imagery that looks vibrant and is a true representation of how our shows and characters look on screen.”
Easy and affordable customized decor
Unlike traditional wallpaper, Nick Walls by HP materials are easy to install and remove—all that is required is water and a sponge. They are printed on PVC-free paper with odor-free water-based inks and meets the GREENGUARD Children & Schools standard for low-emitting products.
The custom wall panels are shipped to the customer’s home with personalized, easy-to-follow instructions. Customers also will have the option to purchase a toolkit to further simplify the installation process. HP Wall Art provides maximum customization at an affordable cost, with pricing starting at $3.99 per sq.ft. Customers placing holiday orders in November will automatically receive a 10 percent discount at checkout.

Nick Walls by HP is the first line of designs from HP Wall Art. HP plans to expand the service over the next year, giving consumers the opportunity to bring their favorite movie heroes, musicians, sports personalities and even their own photos to life in their homes.
