Posterjack Peel & Sticks

Teen Gift Ideas

Posterjack Peel & Sticks are made from linen-based material so, unlike traditional vinyl

Each photo can be reapplied up to 200 times, enabling teens to swap out old photos with new ones whenever they like. It's safe to stick them on walls, laptops or lockers. Peel & Sticks are also available in square sizes, which is great for teens who want to create a gallery wall in their bedroom of their Instagram photos.
