Decorating your Kids’ Bedroom Walls: Top 10 Ideas from Sports Poster Warehouse!

February 6, 2013

When asked this week by an American home decorating blogger for some guidance on the best-selling posters for kids’ rooms, I thought: wow, now there’s an impossible task! With over 10,000 items in stock, and no way to tell which ones are bought specifically for kids’ rooms, we thought it best to write a top-10 list of what experience tells us are the best ideas for your kids’ sports-related theme. With a mix of subjectivity and objectivity, here’s your list of the Top 10 Ideas for Decorating your Kids’ Bedroom Walls:

10. Team Logo Posters – A simple, colorful, and effective way to fill up a lot of space, for a reasonable price, with little risk of the images going quickly “out of style”, is to go with official logo posters for your child’s hometown or favorite teams. Amazing value starting at just $10.95 each, with most NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, and NCAA teams in stock. (Direct links to posters seen in the graphic below: Lakers, Canadiens, Nationals, Tar Heels). For NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB, we also have the ever-popular “All Logos” posters, available in one of our most popular combo specials, the Pro Sports Universe Combo.

9. “Touring the Majors” Ballpark Map of America – Every young baseball fan dreams of the ultimate road trip – going coast-to-coast across the great land (and across the border to Toronto), enjoying the great national pastime in all the amazing parks they’ve only seen on TV. This amazing poster brings that dream alive with colorful illustrations and a playful spirit. A SportsPosterWarehouse.com all-time best-seller!

8. Girl Power! – Our Women in Sport collection has over 190 unique and exciting items dedicated specifically to the female side of athletics. From the classic superstars of the ever-growing phenomenon of Women’s Soccer, to the popular stars of the US Women’s Softball Team,  to tennis heroes like Maria Sharapova and Caroline Wozniacki, to some classy vintage style, this is the best way to empower your young women and provide them with positive role modelling for their athletic careers.

7. NASCAR Auto Racing Banners – Everyone with little ones knows: little boys LOVE race cars! And little boys love watching the fast, colorful, edge-of-your-seat excitement of NASCAR races with their daddies. For a big, bold, colorful addition to your kids’ walls, consider a NASCAR 3’x5′ flag, which can easily be pinned to a wall indoors. Over 20 different drivers available, including favorites Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and last year’s champion Brad Keselowski.

6. The “Sports Wisdom” Motivational Series – This amazing 11-poster series has it all: stylish colors, action-packed artwork, and profound positive messages that are sure to inspire your child to new heights! Pick one for their favorite sport, or order five to complete a fully-themed wall. Editions available for baseball, football, lacrosse, swimming, cycling, hockey, and more!

5. The Americana Collection – Sports and American culture go hand-in-hand – they share the same value system; that hard work combined with equal opportunity, and infused with a fighting spirit, can lead to success for all! Some of our most beloved and best-selling posters come from our Americana Collection, containing over 190 posters ranging from historical moments, to great Presidents, to beautiful city skylines, and patriotic-themed art.

4. “Dreams” and “Portrait of a Dunk” Basketball Posters – Two of our favorites for starry-eyed hoop dreamers who someday hope to soar with the greats in the NBA! These, and many other great posters, available in our Basketball Theme Art Collection:

3. All-American Baseball Stars – When it comes to your childrens’ role models, athletic prowess is not all there is to it. You want positive, upstanding character traits, too – like humility, compassion, self-control, teamwork, and consistent effort. These highly-recommended all-American baseball stars combine all of those traits, and more! The elder statesman of the group is Derek Jeter, the legendary shortstop of the New York Yankees who has gone 17 years in the major leagues without a whiff of scandal:

Next, there’s the 2012 A.L. Rookie of the Year, Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels, who kept his mouth shut and let his talent do the talking as he dominated the American League at age 20:

Back over to the National League, there’s the emerging superstar of the Atlanta Braves, Jason Heyward, who is already entering his fourth year in the big leagues at age 23 and is the favorite baseball son of the great Hank Aaron:

2. The Iconic Quarterback – like the All-American baseball star, the big-time NFL quarterback is an iconic symbol of the sporting world. The great ones are often the best role models in sports, combining God-given talent with the leadership abilities we all hope our children can emulate as they grow into positions of responsibility in their own lives. Today’s top QBs are household names around the world, and these men are known for their great personal character as well:

Boston Celtics Posters – From Russell to Rondo, a Spectacular Collection

January 27, 2013

In the universe of basketball posters, there’s four things that really matter. There are trendy hot stars-of-the-moment; there is Michael Jordan; and there are two transcendent teams. To respect the sensitivities of New England hoops fans, we won’t mention the dreaded other franchise; today, we’re focusing only on the green machine – the NBA’s all-time most successful club, the Boston Celtics!

Boston-area sports fans are arguably the most loyal and passionate in the world, and poster publishers have always offered a generous selection of Celtics, Red Sox, Bruins and Patriots posters in their offerings. With over 60 different Celtics posters, prints, pennants and banners in-stock and ready to go, there’s something for the kids room or the man-cave; locker room or boardroom. We’ll focus on a few of our favorite choices; the full collection can be found here in our Boston Celtics Collection.

For any serious fan looking for a great combination of history, action, and style, you must consider “All-Time Greats”, the commemorative print seen here that includes a dozen of history’s greatest, along with all 17 championship seasons: Cousy, Russell, Hondo, Tiny, Bird, McHale, Parish, DJ, Ainge, Pierce, Rondo and Garnett.

Another great choice for the boardroom is one of our all-time best-selling exclusive basketball classics – “1967 Playoff Classic”, this legendary black-and-white beauty from the baseline at old Boston Garden. Wilt Chamberlain versus Bill Russell – just unbelievable!

Another great historic piece is this amazing extra-large premium felt pennant – “17-Time Champions”. This one can go anywhere – kids room, basement, office, or even as a gag gift for a Lakers fan you know (oops, we said the word…)! The quality of this made-in-USA premium item from Wincraft is astounding.

Speaking of championships, this one must be seen in person to be believed. From Photofile’s “Photoramics” collection, this is a spectacular celebration of the 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics. Pierce, Allen, Garnett, Rondo, Cassell, House, Perkins, Davis, and the rest are all here, in stunning color and detail from original photographic sources.

If you just want to hang that magnificent lucky leprechaun logo, you have several choices. For the ultimate in simplicity and value, just grab one of these official NBA team logo posters from Costacos Sports. For a splash of retro style, check out this standard-sized premium felt pennant featuring the throwback style. For something really bold – REALLY BIG – you can order this massive three-foot-by-five-foot banner that can go on the wall, on a flagpole, or with you to the game to help you get on TV!

Finally, get up to speed with some new-school. Rajon Rondo is today’s most popular poster boy for the green-and-white, but we’ve also got you covered with KG and Paul Pierce. And as the months and years go by and new stars arrive…we’ll have you covered!

NHL Poster Sales Down 40 Percent During Lockout

January 9, 2013

NHL Poster Sales Down 40 Percent During Lockout

Hockey fans show their work stoppage displeasure with a strike of their own

Toronto, Ontario, January 7, 2012 – SportsPosterWarehouse.com (SPW), a leading online destination for sports posters and pennants, revealed today that NHL poster and pennant sales were down 40 percent for Q4 2012. This downward trend reveals that hockey fans staged a strike of their own, choosing to no longer purchase NHL related products during the lockout that will effectively end this month.

“Generally, professional hockey hero and NHL team posters are scarcely available in most American sporting goods stores. Thus, for many years, SPW has been a popular destination for NHL lovers. During the lockout, not even Sidney Crosby himself is selling well,” explains Neil Flagg, President of SportsPosterWarehouse.com.

The high period for a sports poster sales is during its respective season play. However, despite the fact that the NHL season is expected to begin in January, SPW forecasts that fan interest in NHL product sales will pick up somewhat, but wont fully rebound, in part due to lingering fan dissatisfaction with the work stoppage.
