Motocross Dirt Bike Decal
What better way to help a young rider (or a 20-something magazine editor) celebrate the sport he loves than having a dirtbike jumping over his name on the wall? Better than giving him a stack of Sharpies, these 14-inch-high decals feature a matte finish to eliminate glare, so they appear to be hand-stenciled on the wall. Customizable for color, size and lettering, the graphics cost about $21 apiece and will adhere to any clean, smooth, flat surface.
