If you’re a Zoo or Aquarium

First off, know that we've taken care to draw animals for our Zoo and Aquarium clients accurately, and in a very realistic style—as opposed to the cartoony, humanized caricature animals we've drawn for some of our designs for other clients.  We know accuracy is important to you.  We also know you only want to show animals that actually reside at your facility, so we have options to make that happen for you.

Below are our product and usage recommendations, based on decades of relationships with some of the largest Zoos and Aquariums in the world.


Product Recommendations

Rigid Wipeable Plastic
Consider the Rigid Plastic if you have a wall to mount it on.  In a party room, you could mount it semi-permanently, or for special events you could mount it temporarily just for the event event run.  The Rigid Plastic comes in 4' wide sections, which you'd screw mount onto your wall.

Rollable Wipeable Plastic
Consider the Rollable Plastic if you'd like a mural that's more maneuverable for different events, and you'd like to use our stand to make it a free-standing activity.  The Rollable comes to you as one piece, with grommets.  Note that the Rollable might not last you quite as long as the Rigid.

Table Size Coloring Sheets
Consider the Table Sheets for just about any of your special events and camp activities.  These are 7.5' x 2', paper, so they roll up easily for storage and roll out easily for quick set-up.

Thoughts on How to Use Them

Birthday Parties, Corporate Parties, Volunteer Parties or Day Camps

Put a Wipeable Mural in a party area, and you have a nice wall decoration, as well as a very flexible activity—you could color on the mural as much or as little as you like, depending on the party schedule, weather, etc. These could work for birthday parties, as well as a children's activity for any corporate parties, volunteer parties, or other special events.

Also consider our Table Size Coloring Sheets, which are a smaller and more economical activity. These are on 7.5'x2' heavy-duty paper, for use with crayons. They roll up small, so they're easy to store and just pull out whenever you need them. They take way longer to complete than you think.

Halloween Promotions ("Boo At The Zoo" type events)

If you add activities during your Boo At The Zoo type promotions at your zoo, a mural is a nice addition. It's a cute, warm-and-fuzzy activity that will attract all ages. With our Wipeable mural material, you could wipe it down at the end of every day, so you could use it every day of this year's promotion, as well as every day of next year's, and likely years after that. We have a stand for either rental or purchase, if you'd like to make this a freestanding activity (but note that the stand should be moved indoors out of the wind overnight.)

Could You Get a Mural Sponsored?

Keep in mind that our murals are very sponsorable. We can include full color zoo and sponsor logos in the design.

Building a New Exhibit?

If you have a big celebration weekend when you open your new exhibit, a mural would be a nice addition. We can draw your new animals directly from photos you send us. Starting in 2022, we can't take on extensive new illustration, so we can't draw a whole new habitat.

Earth Day, Migratory Bird Day, Shark Week, etc.

Remember us when you're celebrating various animal-centered events. Our murals are a natural for Earth Day, and we have some nice bird designs and shark designs.
