What is a Bumper Sticker ?
Today a bumper sticker is a sticker or magnet to be displayed on the bumper of your vehicle. However, long before what we now know as a bumper sticker there were several different ways to advertise on moving vehicles.
Brief History of The Bumper Sticker
When the horse and buggy was the means of transportation advertisers would print the name of their business on horsefly nets. As things evolved by the 1930’s and 1940’s and cars and trucks came into play, advertisers made signs of metal or cardboard and wired them to bumpers.
During World War ll developments in material manufacturing brought into play daylight flourescent inks. These were very popular and were used to support various wartime efforts. Pressure sensitive stickers appeared after World War ll and new developments included adhesive materials. This led to paper strips with adhesive backs for easier application.
Advanced technology has led us to today’s popular vinyl and magnetic bumper stickers.
We no longer have to print our own messages on cardboard! Today bumper stickers are pre-made or custom-made in several sizes with the most popular being 10 by 3 inches. They come in a wide range of colors and sayings. The possibilities are endless!!
What Is The Purpose Of A Bumper Sticker?
