Trading Phrases Review and Giveaway!

I have to be honest I have a new addiction! I am in love with wall art. I like the idea that I am not putting holes in the wall and I can be in complete control of the size and colors of the art that I choose. I was given the opportunity to review some art from Trading Phrases, I decided to choose the Laughter sparkles like a splash of water in sunlight, I chose it in white because I wanted to put it on a yellow background. I also decided to try this not on the wall but a painted canvas. I had not heard if it was possible to do this, and wasn’t sure what the results would be but I am pleased to say that if you don’t want to put it on your walls or want something with more dimensions then you can put it on other materials. I started with a blank canvas, and then painted it sunshine yellow, after allowing it to dry I then applied a portion of the wall art. It went on seamlessly!

“Trading Phrases is a family-owned company located in Columbus, Ohio which specializes in creating beautiful vinyl lettering designs for your home or business.
The name Trading Phrases was inspired by one of our favorite television shows, Trading Spaces, which aired for eight years on TLC. The “trading” aspect of our name fits perfectly as our designs make special gifts for weddings, new babies, or anniversaries. Consider purchasing one of our designs as a gift for your child’s first college apartment or dorm room, a housewarming party, or to commemorate any of life’s other milestones. “Phrases” is our name’s counterpart because our vinyl lettering creates beautiful designs using words, phrases, sayings, and memorable quotations. We also offer custom designs where we can turn your special saying or memory into extraordinary artwork.
Whether you are purchasing one of our designs for your home or the home of someone you love, Trading Phrases can help you turn an ordinary wall into a unique work of art. We take pride in offering only the finest products to our customers.”



Trading Phrases has an endless selection of wall lettering, quotes, and graphics that you can choose from. They not only provide quality items, they provide very easy and clear instructions for applying the vinyl wall lettering. I was able to apply the quote to my canvas alone, and it looks as if someone professional had applied it! The nice thing about all vinyl lettering is that it is removable and will not damage your walls. So if you are in an apartment or planning on moving you do not need to worry about it being a lifetime commitment, it is a breeze to remove.
