The process of developing decals was started way back in 1750 by a Frenchman Simon Francois Ravenet. Decal is a short form of French word “Decalquer” which means to “copy by tracing.” In that time, handmade tissue was used to transfer the color coat.
However, in 1800’s when rubber glue bats were invented wall decals industry boosted because those rubber glue bats were reusable. In 1895 duplex paper was invented that turned down the cost of decal production by 80%. The last giant leap to impact decals was the innovation of silk-screen printing in 1930’s.
Since then there was no way back for wall decal industry and at present with the amazing advancement of printing industry by the boon of computerized scanners and image editors wall decor stickers are just thriving.
