Mars Attacks wall graphics in Boing Boing Bazaar

These fantastic Mars Attacks wall graphics are in the Makers Market / Boing Boing Bazaar. I have Card # 21 (Prize Captive) on my office wall now (child included for size reference). The graphics come in your choice of sizes ranging from 1-foot to 6-feet in length.

LTL PRINTS has been working with Topps for the last six months, and we have launched giant wall graphics featuring a number of their classic brands, including Wacky Packages, Garbage Pail Kids, and Hollywood Zombies, along with several collections of sportscard wrapper wall graphics (Baseball, Football, Basketball, and Hockey, from the 1950s to the present). Our most recent wall graphics launch with Topps, Mars Attacks, is my personal favorite. Originally released in 1962, the Mars Attacks trading cards were drawn by renowned comic book artists Wally Wood and Bob Powell, and painted by legendary pulp artist Norman Saunders. Kids loved them, but the cards prompted parental concerns due to the sensational storyline and over-the-top graphics.

After LTL PRINTS had launched over 500 Wacky Packages wall graphics and received some pretty nice feedback from our customers, we asked Topps if there was any chance that we could launch the same sort of thing for Mars Attacks. They said YES, and went into their archives and re-scanned the master versions of each of the 55 cards in the original trading card series.

LTL PRINTS is currently working with artists, designers, and brands from around the world to bring their 'content' to empty walls globally, and over the last 6 months we have launched hundreds of premium wall graphic collections (e.g. Popeye, Betty Boop, Dilbert, Peanuts). We are working with digital designers like Susan Kare and Yiying Lu, legendary aerosol and street artists like Vulcan and Chor Boogie, and painters like Casey O'Connell. Next week, LTL PRINTS launches a new KIDS WALL GRAPHICS catalog that features giant wall art from Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit, giant dinosaurs from the Natural History Musuem, panoramic wall murals of animals in the wild, and Paddington Bear. And our next major consumer launches include Marilyn Monroe and Star Trek wall graphic collections. Simply: LTL PRINTS is working to create a new medium for creative expression. Our goal is to bring amazing content to empty walls around the world.

If you want a giant vinyl sticker of a football helmet, big clip-art flowers, or almost-lifesize cutouts of the latest boy band, there are loads of companies out there offering these sorts of wall graphics. And they are selling tens of millions of dollars worth of these big vinyl stickers each year. LTL PRINTS is taking a slightly different approach. Rather than using vinyl, we are printing on a premium material that is called 'self-adhesive repositionable fabric paper', and will stick to almost any surface (walls, windows, even ceilings), and can be removed and re-hung 100 times without leaving a mark or damaging your walls. By combining this new material and production with the worlds greatest content, we are attempting to literally create a new medium for creative expression.

  1. When the movie came out I learned about the original card series from an article in Disney Adventures (which was actually a pretty stellar kid’s mag for some time.) The card that they featured/I really remember from it is “Destroying A Dog,” and I now have an urge to get a nice, blown-up version. This is awesome.

  2. Oh, dear.

    I recently decluttered my living room. It looks good . . . but kind of bleak and beige.

    I’ve been thinking a nice print. Maybe an Ansel Adams.

    But now Mark has put baaaad ideas in my head.

  3. Wow. I saw the movie and never realized it was based on something specific, as opposed to general ’60s SF. Neat.

  4. You know, you had me – love the print, awesome, want. Go to order that specific print – can’t find it from any of the links, and I paged (rather slowly) through all the LTL posters. To get the specific print featured, you have to search specifically for that. No product link for it otherwise. On top of that, the “see all” links don’t actually show you all products – it just shows you another paginated view. On top of *that*, if you do manage to search for “prize captive”, add it to the cart, it asks you for your shipping address, which you enter, then shoves you off to paypal – which immediately assumes that your billing address is the same as your shipping address. No way to enter a separate billing address.

    Worst. E-commerce. Ever. Fail.

    1. To get the specific print featured, you have to search specifically for that. No product link for it otherwise.

      If you follow the link at the bottom of the post, the featured poster is the first item in the first row, although the image is rotated 90°. Clicking that takes you right to the page where you can add it to your cart.

      No way to enter a separate billing address.

      We’ll check into it.

      1. The image order is random – reload a few times and it changes. Also, could anyone else actually find it on the top link? I paged and paged but didn’t see it. Only later did I try the bottom link.

    2. We are working to improve our Makers Market storefront, and optimally feature the entire Mars Attacks wall graphics catalog. And you are right. There is definitely room for improvement. IF you are so inclined, kindly contact me directly and I will get this sorted out to your absolute satisfaction, and I apologize for any inconvenience.

  5. It’s a trap! When I got my print they didn’t include the well mannered girl. I got a chain smoking two-year old Indonesian boy.

    1. You forgot to read the micro-fine print:

      “Supplied child may not be as illustrated”

      No refund for you!


  6. Hmm yea, I didn’t even see the bottom link until I saw the comment about it. Top link goes to the BBB store where I couldn’t find the posters.

  7. Next time you use your child for scale please ask her to hold a geologist’s hammer.
