Download it for free and print it out at home. Created with inspiration from flow blue china, tulips and spring. Fuelled by potato chips and curiosity.
It took a bit longer than I thought but it was worth the effort. I created this stand mixer decal by photographing the design on my favourite flow blue plate.
I then worked on the image in Photoshop and Lightroom to create the actual decal.
TO MAKE YOUR OWN all you have to do is print it onto decal paper and stick it on your Kitchen Aid. Review the decal tips I wrote about in my original stand mixer decal post before you do it.
DON'T HAVE DECAL PAPER? Order it now.
It's transparent decal paper that you need so if you're buying a different brand make sure it's transparent.
Table of Contents
- Download the pdf image onto your computer.
- Print it onto a regular sheet of paper to make sure the sizing is right. (it won't look as good on regular paper because it's been designed for glossy paper)
- If the sizing looks right (like the photo below) then adjust your printer for glossy paper. THIS IS IMPORTANT.
- Place your decal paper in the printer so the image will be printed on the glossy side of the paper.
- Let it dry for 15 minutes before handling the decal.
- Cut the decal into quarters (like the photo below)
- Cut each individual image out. You may need to snip into the decal to get it to bend around curves like I showed you in this post.
- Peel off the backing and place your stickers on the mixer.
I don't mean to be bossy but ...
THESE WOULD MAKE GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.
That's right I'm bringing the Christmas Pledge into this. Think of how accomplished you'd feel if you printed these off now and tucked them away for giving at Christmas.
You get 15 or 20 sheets in a package of decal paper. Let's assume you screw up a few of them because that's what happens in life. You'll still have at least 10 decal sheets left, meaning 10 presents of a stand mixer decal.
I know you're wondering what happened to the other decals? The rooster decal I bought was unceremoniously scraped and pulled off to make way for the flow blue. No regrets.
Have fun and send photos!
What a great idea! Did you use an inl jet printer or laser jet printer? Does it matter?
Hi Melody! You have to use an ink jet printer for this decal paper. ~ karen!
It looks quite elegant. Shades of Hyacinth Bucket and her famed RoyaI Doulton china. I do like the new pattern over the first rooster theme. It shows you CAN have nice things. Kudos.
Hi Kat, Hyacinth Bucket is a character from the brit sitcom Keeping Up Appearances. Look it up!
I know that. That's what SHE always says.
I can have nice things - as long as I photograph them and turn them into stickers before they break. ~ karen!
You are amazing -- well done Karen and you're just giving it as a gift. Thank you !
Hey Karen, the link you gave shows "glossy white" decal paper. Don't you want transparent or am I reading something wrong?
Just want to be sure before ordering and thank you for the decals. You rock! ;-)
Good catch Carrie!! It's updated and fixed to be transparent. ~ karen!
As clever buggers go, you are certainly up there! Keep 'em coming!
Thanks Warren! I'm a lot more curious than I am clever so it takes a while to figure things out. ;) ~ karen!
Now, THIS is beautiful!🤩
Having not been a huge fan of decals previously, this is something that I would use and proudly gift.
Thanks Elmine! I really like how it turned out too. ~ karen!
Thank you Karen - these are beautiful!
thanks! ~ karen
I love the decal, but if I print it with my ink jet printer, won't the image smear when I wipe off my mixer?
Karen, look up water slide paper. You can print to it and dip in water, slide it off onto what ever you are decorating. The background decal paart disappears
Hi Darlene! Yep, I have water slide paper as well. In fact I accidentally printed my first decal on it. Water slide paper is more permanent than a vinyl decal which can be repositioned and peeled off. That's why these decals are made from vinyl decal paper instead of water transfer. I've kept my page of water slide flow blue decals though. Once I spray it with a clear coat I might put one on a coffee mug. :) ~ karen!
Thank you! Your curiosity is a wonderful thing! Learn so much from your blog.
Thanks Marcia! The only time I don't appreciate my own curiosity is around midnight when I start moving furniture around, lol. Hmm .... I bet if I moved this and put this over here, and slide that over there this room would look GREAT. (that sort of thing) ~ karen!
Holy moly, these came out beautifully! Thanks for sharing, I'm absofrootly going to do this with my mixer
They really did turn out nice. :) ~ karen!
Beautiful. Didn’t think the mixer needed them but I was wrong. Nice home-y thing going on. Great job!
I understand. I'm not much for this sort of thing. But there's something about these that I really like. ~ karen!
So…I thought I would at least look at all of the decals that were available on Amazon…using your link…your original Dutch folk art set is now $42.95
That's the price on Amazon Canada! I know it's alarming. I actually ordered mine from Amazon US because even with shipping, duty and the exchange rate the decals still only came to around $22 Canadian. ~ karen!
That's cool. My mixer is red, and I think the pattern on my dishes would look good there. Thank you for doing it first!
The decal is beautiful! Thank you so much.
You're welcome! ~ karen
