Bumper stickers first became popular in the USA after World War II, as a way to promote election candidates and political parties. Today we can talk about them as art or just as an expression of thought. There are many different purposes to bumper stickers - those officially indicating the country to humorous tips and recommendations to others in the road traffic. We can also notice that the trend of bumper stickers is a decline. This is mostly involving political bumper stickers, where people nowadays choose to keep their political views a little more private.
Sticker art can sometimes be in a form of sticker bombing or sticker tagging, which represents a unique way of delivering messages and images with multiple stickers with the same or similar image displayed to a wide publicity. Sometimes, sticker art is referred to as a type of street art and graffiti. In this way building walls, road signs, and mailboxes are often chosen to display sticker art, which usually results in social indignation with such art, which spoils municipal property and environment.
As far as bumper sticker printing services go, you can manage it quite easily from the privacy of your home and the comfort of your computer. Bumper stickers are in most cases 30 cm by 8 cm (12 in by 3 in) and printed on PVC (polyvinyl chloride), which makes them durable to weather conditions. These bumper stickers are placed with an adhesive and need to adhere well to the surface of the car. There are also other kinds of bumper stickers, which can be removed more easily as well as magnetic bumper stickers.
Bumper sticker printing is offered by many companies over the internet, where ordering bumper sticker is as simple as going shopping. You can even make your own bumper sticker either by choosing a design layout, typing your text and formatting the sticker or you can upload your homemade design which they will print and send it to you by mail order. You should always keep in mind that if you want to save money, it is preferable to go with offered stock sizes because most printing companies charge you by the printed paper. If you choose your own size (some of them offer that possibility) you may have lots of wasted printed paper.
Also, some of the sites for custom bumper stickers printing offer other advantages such as free shipping, fast service, no minimum quantity, live support, free design help, etc. Of course, besides online bumper sticker ordering, you can also check out the prices and offers of your local printing shops and stores. Though some of them are only based on bulk and wholesale printing, there are still such shops, stores and print studios that can accommodate even a small volume of print orders such as bumper sticker printing for personal purposes.
