Bumper stickers are typically found on the front or back end of a car, but they can also turn up in other places. They are usually put on to express a message, some can be funny, or back up an important cause, while others might have religious messages. On the other hand, with an election year coming up there are many of them endorsing various political candidates.
In other countries a bumper sticker is attached to a car that travels from one country to another. Sometimes companies that employ fleets of vehicles may put a bumper sticker on the truck or van with their number on it, and something that identifies the vehicle. Something like this led to the widely popular “How’s My Driving”, style of humorous bumper sticker that can be found in millions of places.
Bumper stickers are adhesive stickers attached to a special backing that allows it to be peeled off and then attached to something else. Once the sticker is removed from this backing it should be used, the sticky side of the bumper sticker will not stay that way long if exposed to the air. The backing feels like wax paper and it can be discarded or recycled.
Custom bumper stickers are a great way to advertise and they can be personalized with your own message or slogan. The branches of the military armed forces use them to recruit or call people’s attention, as do many popular colleges and universities.
They are also used by many families. For example, they can be created to represent the entire family and be the perfect gift for your next family reunion. The stickers can include the family’s name or a symbol or saying significant to everybody, also, if you want them absolutely unique they can have a custom shape.
These type of stickers are most commonly and often seen as a form of self expression. People like to pick up ones that say witty things, such as, “If you can read this…You’re too close” or “Don’t follow me…I’m lost too” and other things like that.
It has been suggested that controversial bumper stickers may in fact help promote road rage. However, there is no evidence to back up this claim, actually, people would be fine if they would just think, and realize that if they don’t like what they are reading, they don’t have to look.
Bumper stickers are extremely popular, they are found on one in three cars in the United States. You can buy them almost everywhere, including several retailers that sell them online. It’s a cheap and funny way to get a point across. But choose wisely, humor at someone’s expense is never funny for long. There are a lot of options out there that don’t offend anyone.
