If you're ready to create your own pixel art using Post-it® Super Sticky Notes, here's a list of tips to get you started.
Wherever you plan to install your pixel art, measure the space and then use those measurements to figure out how many Post-it® Notes high and wide your design will be.
Having a plan will make it easier to install your pixel art mural, and it will make the whole process go a lot more smoothly. Lay out your design on a computer or tablet, or if it's a simple design, you can sketch it out on Post-it® Grid Notes, or graphing paper. Each pixel in your grid represents a 3" x 3" space-the size of one Post-it® Super Sticky Note.
Measure out the whitespace in your design to will help ensure all the Post-it® Super Sticky Notes are placed in the right spot.
Pixel art looks best with high-contrast colours next to each other, so when you're picking out colours, think strikingly different, not noticeably the same.
Use Post-it® Super Sticky Notes instead of original Post-it® Notes. Post-it® Super Sticky Notes are made with with a stronger adhesive that's better for vertical surfaces, but also removes cleanly, when you are ready to take the mural down.
When you're ready to purchase supplies to create your mural, start with single-colour packs of Post-it® Super Sticky Notes to ensure you have a good amount of the colours you need.
Instead of lifting each sheet from the bottom and pulling it off of the pad in a vertical direction, lift each sheet from the side. Carefully pull it off the pad in a horizontal direction. This helps keep the notes flat and reduces curl in the note.
The experience of creating your mural should be an enjoyable one, so relax and have fun. Check us out on Pinterest to see the Post-it® art other people are making, and be sure to let us know what you create on social media.
