The original, Made-in-the-USA skins giant DecalGirl, has signed Jim Benton into its ever-growing roster of recognized artists. Benton is the award-winning cartoonist of such properties as It’s Happy Bunny™, The Misters™ and Meany Doodles™. He is also the New York Times Bestselling author and illustrator of the globally successful Dear Dumb Diary series published by Scholastic. The DecalGirl/Benton collection features the artist’s newest properties Catwad™ and jOkObO™, with prices starting at $9.99 for a cell phone skin.
The world of licensed products is familiar territory for Benton. His work has generated over ¾ of a billion dollars at retail and has been featured on clothing, home goods, cards and stationery, and a plethora of other consumer accessories. "I'm looking forward to working with DecalGirl," said Benton.
“What is there not to enjoy about Jim’s work?! Unicorns farting cupcakes? Gun slinging carrots?” says Linda Castillon, SVP, Licensing at DecalGirl. “His dry, tongue-in-cheek humor knows no generational boundaries. From tweens to adults, Jim’s adorable imagery juxtaposed with his cynical commentary is not lost on those who just want to laugh,” she continued.
DecalGirl skins are the most affordable skins on the market, so customers can enjoy as many skins as they want for their devices. “We want Catwad™ and jOkObO™ fans to be able to cover all of their gadgets with Jim’s designs!” stated Castillon.
The high-resolution, digital graphics of DecalGirl skins are printed directly onto high-performance cast vinyl film, and are then sealed with a UV, fade resistant matte or gloss enamel for added durability. The skins are easily removed with their patented adhesive backing, which doesn’t leave behind any sticky residue. DecalGirl skins are thin and durable, they fit precisely and tightly on device surfaces, they and will last for years … or until the customer replaces it with another design.
