"Fathead's product line will be a great fit for the One Direction fan and we are thrilled to be working with them. We look forward to a long and successful partnership," said Tracy Stone, President of Global Merchandising USA.

The super-group came to be when in 2010, the five young men auditioned as solo acts for the UK-version of the hit TV show The X Factor.  Simon Cowell, the show's creator and executive producer brought back the five to form a group who came in third place.  Upon leaving The X Factor, they signed with Modest! Management and Cowell's Syco Entertainment and in the span of two short years, have become global superstars.  One Direction has since topped the charts in 37 countries and sold millions of records around the world.  The group enjoys a massive social media reach including Facebook, Twitter, and tumblr. sites and their screaming fan base continues to grow.  

"Over the past year we have received more requests for One Direction than any other images we do not currently carry," said Joanna Cline, Chief Marketing Officer at Fathead.  "We pride ourselves on listening to our very passionate customers and are thrilled to make this partnership happen. Now fans across the globe can now take 1D home with them!"

The One Direction REAL.BIG. Fathead wall graphics are high definition images made of durable, high-grade vinyl that is tear and fade resistant.  Fatheads are removable, reusable and designed with a special adhesive backing that enables them to be moved from wall to wall with no damage to the surface.  Along with the stunning main image, each Fathead comes with additional decals for even more 1D decor options.  Fathead cutouts, including weatherproof ground graphics are the perfect solution to decorating rooms where nails, tack and tape are an inconvenience. 

One Direction Fathead wall graphics collection are available exclusively at Fathead.com along with more than 500 licensed brands and thousands of Fathead graphic products from Disney, Nickelodeon, Star Wars, WWE, Marvel and DC along with the NFL, MLB, NBA and many more popular brands.
