Custom bumper stickers are a U.S. institution
Bumper sticker printing evolves to fast, short run, affordable promotion
Bumper stickers are one of the most versatile, dynamic, time-tested…and under-appreciated marketing tools on the planet. And have been for a while now. Whether referred to as “custom car stickers” or “custom bumper stickers,” bumper sticker printing is—and has been—big business.
With today’s fast, short-run and affordable digital printing options, your custom bumper stickers (using one message/design or many—same price) can print and ship within 72 hours. Today’s custom car sticker provides personality and personalization on a more professional level than ever before.
Bumper sticker printing really started about the time World War II was ending. A New York Times article notes, “One day in the mid-1940s, Forest Gill, the owner of a print shop, knelt down in a Kansas City parking lot and measured a car’s bumper. Ever since the automobile age began, drivers had advertised their opinions with handmade placards tied to their cars with bits of twine. Gill realized that he could make “bumper signs” forever obsolete…Gill seized on two new technologies — self-adhesive paper and Day-Glo paint — and combined them into a novelty item perfectly adapted for America’s highways. By the 1960 presidential election, bumper stickers were everywhere, rivaling buttons as a favorite way for voters to declare their intentions.”
Far from being just “stickers for cars,” bumper stickers can adorn just about anything—serving equally suitably attached to a refrigerator, bulletin board, store window, signage pole, laptop, even apparel. Because they’re self-adhesive, application is very convenient. They can make great flyers, small posters or even political signs.
Unlike the 1940s, you’re not stuck with laborious, costly printing processes…or Day-Glo paint! Today, thanks to lightning-fast digital printing, you can easily and economically show your school spirit, support (or oppose) local political candidates, promote your business and champion your favorite causes—all in full color. Choose oval or rectangle in four popular sizes, and get your customized bumper stickers on premium white vinyl material in quantities as low as 50.
