Following are some of the popular items that are available in Islamic art for sale online:
1) Wall decals
Wall decals are vinyl stickers that can be pasted directly to the walls, without the need of framing. The stickers are cut to the size and shape of the Arabic text written in calligraphic style. Economically priced, they are abundantly available on ecommerce platforms and seem to be the most popular form of Islamic wall art, going by the number of sellers dealing in it.
The vinyl decals are sticky on the side that is stuck to the wall, while on the other side, they have Quranic text in calligraphic font. Self-adhesive and water-resistant, they come in very large sizes. As they come sans any background (the background being the wall surface only), the focus is only on the calligraphy, and more importantly, on the verse (s) of the Quran.
2) Digital prints
For those who love colours but can’t afford Islamic paintings, then digital prints of original Islamic paintings are a good option. Even a print of digitally-coloured handwritten calligraphy serves the purpose. The digital images can be printed in any size on canvas or paper. High-quality digital prints mimic the originals very well, and it is difficult to tell the difference. Above all, they are easy on the pocket. Frame them and uplift the visual and spiritual décor of your home.
3) Steel frames
If you like 3D art, stainless steel frames, a new innovation, should work well for you. A stainless steel frame, cut to shape of the text with the help of a machine, looks majestic yet minimalist, especially when lit from behind.
4) Glass works
