Last year I was touting my decorating acumen for having framed a Wacky Pack press sheet to decorate our office. But these large-scale Wacky Packs (available in sizes up to 7 feet tall) raise a serious client-relations question. How far do I dare go with the Wacky Packaging decor?
Some of these mock packages actually imply that the products they contain are maybe not so good. Is that the message I really want to send? Certainly not the usual market-speak of a consumer packaged goods design firm. Maybe that’s refreshing.
What do you think? If you were a client, would it alienate you? And which one of the Wacky Packages below, do you think would look good, say, seven feet long over our conference table—I mean, without damaging our credibility with you?

Another cool thing about these banners, is that they are conceptually very close to the original stickers. Rather than a reproduction of a sticker blown up and mounted or framed as artwork—these are still stickers, only gigantic. (According to LTL Prints’ John Doffing, they can be “removed and re-hung 100 times without leaving a mark, damaging walls, or losing adhesion.”) See their extensive library of 72 licensed Topps Wacky Packages (with occasional office furniture for scale) here.
