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!"
