Startup Sees The Graphic On The Wall

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Nevada was recently listed by CNN as one the nation's top 10 most entrepreneurial states, citing the state's growing number of startup companies as a major contributing factor. Walls 360 is one of those startups helping to diversify the Las Vegas economy.

Walls 360 was founded by CEO John Doffing, COO Tavia Campbell, and creative director Yiying Lu, designer of the famous Twitter "Fail Whale." It is a one-stop print shop for graphics, stickers, and wall murals. On Wednesday night, the company held an open house at its headquarters near Tropicana Avenue and Arville Street.

The company opened in Las Vegas last September, and has been building up its on-demand production facilities and clientele, which includes major video game publishers Electronic Arts and PopCap.

In addition to the licensed artwork, Walls 360 also creates custom wall graphics and stickers for customers.

"If you want one big sticker, we can make you one big sticker. If you want 500 little stickers, we'll make you 500 little stickers," said Campbell.

Walls 360 started in San Francisco, but relocated to Las Vegas last September due in part to Nevada's non-existent corporate taxes and low cost of living.

The Nevada Development Authority, which works to diversify and improve the economy of Southern Nevada, assisted them through the complicated process of relocation. To show their appreciation, Lu designed the NDA's "Yes Vegas!" campaign logo and Walls 360 produced the graphics at no cost to the non-profit agency.

The stickers and murals Walls 360 produce are reusable and removable without leaving sticky residue. Their collection range from artistic, abstract designs to pop culture icons and brands. Everything they offer is created on-demand and shipped in as little as 48 hours, a level of service made possible by the founders' decision not to outsource the printing.

Walls 360 was recently listed by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the country's 100 Brilliant Companies.
