This week, our beautiful and talented friend Melanie Iglesias debuted her 5th television series, MTV’s “Off the Bat”. The Slickforce team is so proud of our rapidly rising starlet, and to celebrate, we are announcing pre-orders for Part 2 of the Pure Mel collector’s poster series.
Pure Mel part 1 has consistently been one of our best-sellers in the Melanie Iglesias Store, with nearly 50% of posters sales coming from Mel’s growing female audience. It’s a look at Ms. Iglesias in a rare new and natural light, without the glitz and glam of the studio.
On the heels of the success of the Autism Speaks signing promotion, Melanie Iglesias revisits SlickforceStudio, this time to raise money for Toys for Tots. She gives her fans one week to order her life-size “Bedtime with Teddy” posters, and she personalizes each one, just in time for the holidays.
An extremely special thanks goes out to the Melanie Iglesias Store team, who handled hundreds of orders and worked tirelessly to insure Christmas delivery. To learn more, visit MelanieIglesiasStore.com.
Thank you all for your incredible support this year. None of this would be possible without you. Wishing each of you peace, love, and happiness during this holiday season and beyond. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Over the summer, Melanie Iglesias came by SlickforceStudio for fun and spontaneous shoot. One of the images spawned from that shoot was Mel’s Ice Cream Disaster, which went viral almost immediately after it was announced.
This video takes you behind-the-scenes at our second poster release, and this time Mel arrives life-sized, from head to toe. Melanie’s interaction with the teddy bear certainly deserves an award, we’re just not sure which one. Think of this as our version of Tom Hanks and Wilson in CastAway.
Order your “Bedtime with Teddy” 24×69 door/wall poster at MelanieIglesiasStore.com and SaglimbeniStore.com. Orders for AUTOGRAPHED posters placed by this Thursday, December 12 at midnight, will receive FREE personalization while Melanie is in town visiting her store. Post pictures of you with the poster and tag #LifesizeMel.
I’ve always felt that art should be displayed as large as possible. It’s a form of exhibition that has become even more rare in our current era, where most pictures never get bigger than Instagram size, only to be replaced seconds later with something newer. Large format allows the viewer to become immersed in the fantasy.
With the recent explosion of the Melanie Iglesias Store, I had an idea to print an image of Mel at her actual height. Aside from the sheer resolution concerns, we only found a handful of printers who could print a large volume of posters at over five-and-a-half feet tall each. We ultimately went with Ferrante & Associates, who I must say did a spectacular job of printing our starlet. Last week, our first pallet of Melanie’s life-size “Bedtime with Teddy” posters arrived via truck and forklift. And they are truly a sight that one must appreciate up close.
You asked for it—you got it. True 100% scale life-size Melanie Iglesias, right in your room. Order your “Bedtime with Teddy” 24×69 door/wall poster at MelanieIglesiasStore.com and SaglimbeniStore.com. Post pictures of Mel in your room and tag #LifesizeMel for a chance to win a personalized poster!

Last week, Melanie Iglesias dropped by SlickforceStudio to sign her new Ice Cream Disaster posters for the Melanie Iglesias Store. With the recent launch of her new MTV2 shows Guy Court and Girl Code, Mel’s star has been rising faster than ever. She was stunned at the number of posters waiting for her autograph.
Since I first met Melanie at our WMB 3D: World’s Most Beautiful shoot in 2011, she has always looked for ways to give back. Never one to miss an opportunity, Mel announced to her fans that anyone ordering Ice Cream posters in the next 24 hours would not only get them signed but also personalized. Even better, a portion of sales would be donated to Autism Speaks—a charity close to her heart.
What soon followed was the highest traffic day in the history of the Melanie Iglesias Store. Hundreds of orders poured in in a matter of hours, and Mel extended her signing visit an extra day to accommodate all the orders. After signing the last poster, Mel and the team made a sizable donation to Autism Speaks. We are proud to have partnered with such a stellar woman, and are grateful to all the fans who supported our signing promotion.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes video detailing the impressive weekend. Enjoy!
