So.. what is this Bird Flock Decal Sticker all about? Why whould "I" want this decal for my Macbook ?
Well.. lets talk about what a flock really is... either it be just some flying birds in the sky, a raft of ducks, a charm of finches, a horde of ravens.. or.. in general.. why do birds of a feather flock together?
About Bird Flocks...
Many bird species are gregarious and form flocks for different reasons. Flocks may be different sizes, occur in different seasons and may even be composed of different species that can work well together in a group.
Flocks are so prevalent in some bird species that these groups of birds have special names, such as a raft of ducks, a charm of finches, a horde of ravens or any other of the names for flocks of birds. But no matter what a flock is called, it always has both benefits and problems for the birds that make it up.
Advantages of Bird Flocks
Birds do not engage in any behavior that does not bring them a benefit for survival in some way. There are many advantages to flocking, including:
Foraging: Birds often form flocks while foraging, which allows many birds to take advantage of the same food supplies. Feeding in a group also gives more birds the opportunity to find food that one bird has already located. Foraging flocks are often comprised of mixed species that may feed on similar foods but in non-competing ways. For example, chickadees that glean insects from leaves are often found flocking with nuthatches that glean the same insects from bark.
Protection: A larger group of birds has a better chance of spotting a predator or another potential threat than a single bird has. Furthermore, a group of birds may be able to confuse or overwhelm a predator through mobbing or agile flight. Staying in a flock also presents a predator with more possible targets, which lowers the danger for any single bird.
Mating: Some bird species, most notably game birds, form mating flocks in areas called leks where males will show off their breeding plumage and courtship behavior in an attempt to attract a mate. By performing in a flock, these birds make themselves more visible to a greater number of females, increasing their chances of a successful mating. Flamingos, birds-of-paradise, manakins and several other types of birds also use leks or flocking behavior as part of courtship.
Raising Families: Different types of birds form communal flocks on nesting grounds called rookeries. In a rookery, while each nest is individually tended by parent birds caring for their young. At the same time, however, the full group of birds can take advantage of flock benefits against predators to care for their vulnerable chicks. Birds that do not use rookeries may still form family flocks, and juvenile birds from a first brood may help contribute to raising their late-season siblings.
Aerodynamics: When birds fly in flocks, they often arrange themselves in specific shapes or formations. Those formations take advantage of the changing wind patterns based on the number of birds in the flock and how each bird's wings create different currents. This allows flying birds to use the surrounding air in the most energy efficient way. This can increase the distance birds can fly without rest, which is particularly crucial during migration.
Warmth: In winter, bird flocks can share the benefit of communal warmth to survive severely cold temperatures. Many small birds, such as chickadees and bluebirds, will share the same tiny roost space to keep warm, often in bird roost boxes, hollow trees or other similar spaces that can help them conserve heat. Large flocks may congregate in a single tree to share their body heat as well.
Although there are also some disadvantages of Bird Flocks, the advantages do prevail. Despite the risks, the advantages of flocking are great enough that many different types of birds assemble in small, medium and large groups for different reasons. From a roaming band of foraging finches to a stupendous migrating flock of geese, flocks of birds can be an amazing sight for birders to enjoy. That enjoyment can be even more satisfying when birders recognize how important those flocks are for birds' survival and just how clever group cooperation can be. That is something to think about.. isn't it?

Sure.. yes they can! All of our decals can be easily be removed once applied and no glue residues will remain, nor are they supposed to damage the surface on where they were originally applied to!
We never had any macbook, laptop, wall, glass, paint, stone or generic surface damaged by these decals... however, some common sense is advised.. for instance, do not place the decal on a hot surface or it can melt (this is vinyl, not iron).. not use the decals on dusty or moist surfaces because it will void adhesions (although vinyl is much more mouldable and has far better mechanical caracteristics.. if common duck tape does not stick, chances are that vinyl will not as well).
In doubt.. please ask.. we will reply ASAP.
All orders are shipped in 1 business day!
If your order has a area of 0.25 square meters or less and if it does not show signs of usage you may return it to us. If you try to apply a vinyl to a wall before testing compatibility we will not accept return as particles of dust and residues will remain on the decal.
Due to the high cost of materials involved and because all decals are made by request, orders with square area above 0.25 meters are considered custom made and are not refundable or returnable.
All returns costs are also supported by the client and a restock fee of 35% will be deducted (shipping is not refundable as well). Returns from outside EU, must state this on the packing for customs purposes or we can not accept them back.
Well...nothing lasts forever, but it is not expected to fade! We use a special vulcanization technic in order to print our shirts.. so no color fade is expected. A special type of colored rubber is injected on the fabric making it a permanent die.
THESE ARE NOT A PRINTED TSHIRTS. We vulcanize a polyurethane membrane on top of the fabric forcing it to penetrate inside the cotton mesh by a special heat and localized pressure procedure.. this way it becomes permanent and VERY durable. Using this procedure, your design wont fade or chip off. The shirt has a soft touch as well, very similar to silkscreen with plastisol inks (softer)..
Black will stay black.. and white will stay white.. as well as all other colors. Don't worry about that!!
Yes it is.. what you see is what you get! However, on some decals (or other products), for presentation purposes, the design may be mirrored.
In all cases, the final image for reference, would be the black and white sample image representation present in all item's descriptions. This means that the application example photo may or may not be mirrored . You, the client, unless otherwise requested, will always receive the design with the orientation present on the black and white sample image of this particular ordered product.
If no black and white image is present as a representation of the final design on the product you have chosen, then the orientation of the sample image on the application example is to be considered as final.
Yes... this is possible.. but only for bulk orders.
Please contact me with the amount of items you would like to have and i will get back to you with a final proposition.
Don't forget to specify your location as well.. :)
If you are a business within EU please send us your VAT ID as well for better quotation.
Sure.. no problem on it!
Just request a custom job and i will quote you the best price for it. But remember that small sized jobs can't always be done due to material limitations (we are speaking in sub-millimeter details.. i mean.. those itsibitsi tinywini little dots that you wished to cut for your pet ant as a necklace... sorry can't do those... ...yet.. ^_^)
Unless otherwise stated on the description of the product, all Tshirts are made of 100% pure cotton by the American "Fruit of the Loom" brand, Rolly, American Apparel or MK.
As for vinyl goes.. we use mainly Ritrama, Oracal, MultiFix, 3M, VF3, Avery and Hexis. There are a lot of brands for vinyl but we do prefer these as they are the most stable in production (and they not cheap by the way).
We use good quality vinyl with exterior durability of at least 5 years (usually we do use 5 to 7 year grade vinyl for exterior conditions.. which means that on the interiors these can last for about 12 years or more).
On some cases, depending only of the design and placement destination we may use other types of vinyls.
Sure i can. Just contact me and i will quote it for you!
Different designs with the same square size can have different costs as the difficulty in cutting may be higher or lower. Also, the chosen production material will differentiate the costs.
All jobs are different .. so just contact me and i am sure we will manage a good deal for both of us.
Since BrutalVisual Studio is based on Europe we use the metric system.
This means that all measurements are made in centimeters, but don't worry it's easy to convert :
1) 1 Inch = 2.54 centimeters
.. or ...
2) 1 centimeter = 0.3937 centimeters .
On the other hand :
1) 1 foot = 0.3048 meters
.. or ...
2) 1 meter = 3.2808 feet
Another thing to have in consideration is that :
1) 100 centimeters = 1 meter
.. like as ...
2) 12 inches = foot
Please also note that : 1 centimeter can be noted as 1 cm, and.. 1 Inch can be noted as 1 In.
Yes... i can.
All products can have minor adjustments on designs if required by the buyer and those are FREE. I can also make small insertions of names, slogans, brands, logos of other small taglines on the current design.
Just make a comment when ordering and i will get back to you after the order is complete, or... you can contact me right now and say what is on your mind.
No extra-charge is done assuming that these are minor changes without too much time consuming. If you require no changes, well.. then you just have to finish your order and wait for the delivery.
All FREE-OF-CHARGE modifications or addons will be done in the same color and material as the chosen design.
