An office far, far away

A series of "Star Wars" Post-it note murals are just as epic as the characters they represent. It took thousands of the sticky little pieces of paper to create the wall art at UK office supply retailer Viking.

This wide shot shows all four of the finished pieces depicting Darth Vader, R2-D2, Yoda and a Stormtrooper.

Darth Vader in squares

This Darth Vader wall art -- assembled in the office of UK office supply retailer Viking  --  is made from hundreds of Post-it notes.  Sourcing enough black notes to make the mural proved a challenge.

R2-D2 laid out in a grid

This gridded version of R2-D2 from "Star Wars" was used to lay out a wall art mural made with 3.3-inch Post-it notes. A team of employees at Viking office supply created a series of sci-fi murals designed to fit into specific wall spaces.

Making R2-D2 out of notes

This in-process photo shows a wall artist hard at work installing an R2-D2 mural made from hundreds of Post-it notes. The mural went up as a temporary installation at UK office supply company Viking. As everyone knows, Post-its eventually come unstuck and fall off.

Finished R2-D2 office supply mural

R2-D2 graces the wall of a UK office supply company. The art was made out of Post-in notes, carefully stuck up in a grid pattern. The droid was accompanied by portraits of Darth Vader, Yoda and a Strormtrooper. It took 3,597 pieces of paper to make the four works of wall art.

Stormtrooper from square notes

It took about five hours for a team of four Viking office supply employees in the UK to lay out the thousands of Post-it notes required to make a series of four "Star Wars" murals. This Stormtrooper alone took over 800 pieces of square paper.

Stormtrooper with person for scale

A series of "Star Wars" murals took shape at UK office supply company Viking. One of the team members who helped assemble the wall art poses in front of a Stormtrooper portrait to show off the large-scale size of the image. It took hundreds of notes to make each piece.
