They can be cut into the silhouettes of the subject matter, so that you can remove background, leaving only the things you want to leave in. They come in a wide range of sizes that, depending on the company, run from 12 inches tall to 6 and ½ feet tall.

They are scratch resistant, stick securely to the wall and come off easily, without damaging the wallboard or paint and leaving no residue. Despite that, they are reusable and can be hung up and taken down multiple times.
