i guess like 5 tall by 4 wide - normal pirate size. i usually make some big full sheets too though when i got out for the sides of news bins that face traffic. but is bigger better? i think no. i think more is better, and people should cover more area and cool spots before making big stuff. in a way earn the right to take up alot of space. and before i hear ''anybody has the right to do whatever blah blah'' im speaking from knowledge of new jersey and philly. i dont know how it is where your from. thats the way it is here.
-had to modify this post cause i measured a bunch of stickers and ive learned i suck at guessing sizes
I kind of think smaller is better lately. I've done some biggun's lately and I just tend to find that the ones that stay up the longest are the smallun's... also, the smaullun's fit in grimier little spots that only get buffed every blue moon. I'm focusing on 2 x 3 ish size lately. If it stays up though... obviously bigger is better.
Big is good for places where you want it to be seen from a distance, small (not too small) is good for trashcans and stuff. I guess colour has something to do with it too, I love seeing fresh colours in the streets. I guess it's all about the class of your slap.
Smaller stickers stay under the radar of getting buffed.... but bigger gets all the attention. My stickers are getting bigger, and plan on going bigger on future designs.
Seriously the only stickers I can recognize while driving through Hollywood is "The Wild Ones" Those stickers are huge... yes they probably get taken down quickly, but are so bold that your forced to notice them. Walking in Hollywood is a different story.... then I see the smaller stickers that stay up longer. If it's about fame..... then bigger helps.... also the more attention, also means your on local law enforcements "Most Wanted" list..... massive fines, and jail time, no joke.
I've notice some street artist sky rocket to fame, by simply blasting the Los Angeles freeways in one night with posters? I must say.... some of L.A.s biggest steet artist got there fame from going bigger and going in your face.
