Bring a celebrity to work with a life-size cardboard cutout.
There are many ways to decorate your cubicle. The most appropriate usually depends on the atmosphere of your office environment. Some workplaces limit you to a few family photos and tasteful desk decorations. Others take more of a “no holds barred” and allow employees to really let loose. To get an idea of what is and isn’t acceptable, you should simply look at what others around you are doing, and follow suit.
If you are lucky enough to work in an office where the management prioritizes individualism and encourages employees to develop themselves freely through vocal and creative expression, then your options are greatly increased. In this case, a life-size cardboard cutout can make a really loud statement that looks really cool and at the same time showcases your personality and interests.
These novelty items are manufactured from actual photographs taken of the subjects, and therefore exactly mimic their real life counterparts. They come in a variety of models including everything from animals and dinosaurs to celebrities and famous politicians to your favorite action movie superheroes. If you’ve got a friend or co-worker that’s psyched about the new Star Wars movie, why not surprise them with a life size Stormtrooper or Chewbacca replica.
The dimensions of the cutout will vary slightly depending on the model, but most are about 12 x 16 x 66 inches, which is an appropriate size to fit snugly into most cubicle corners. They fold easily along predetermined lines and weigh only 2 pounds making transportation a cinch. They’re also quite sturdy despite their modest construction and should last many years if properly taken care of.
Depending on the model you choose, they can also be a funny addition to a great prank. If you want to celebrate an event or upcoming birthday with a hilarious bang, you would do well to consider a realistic life-size cardboard cutout.
