Car Sticker Lover Vs. Car Sticker Hater?


StickerGiant has been in the sticker manufacturing business for a long time, which seems to make us more interested in where sticker enthusiasts place their product.  We've recently noticed a high number of collectors in the area driving around in cars plastered with more than your average amount of bumper stickers and thought it might be interesting to weigh in on this phenomena.

Though many of us are sticker lovers, not everyone agrees about the appropriate places to adhere stickers, especially those who have ever toiled with the painstaking process of removing them.  On the other hand, sticker removal is something that the makers of Goo Gone probably appreciate.

This week a self proclaimed anti-sticker advocate explained to us that bumper stickers are not only a pain to remove, they also lower resale value on vehicles. This person made a fair argument, so we set out to see if we could find solutions to this problem and to seek an opinion from the public.

We know that some people do not appreciate when car owners place stickers on their vehicles, while others see it as personality defining. Where do you fall on the sticker loving scale? Have you found solutions that enable you to live in both worlds?

Comment below and let us know why you are a Car Sticker Lover or a Car Sticker Hater:

Below find a sweet video we found from @Drawthebase on How to Remove Car Decals:

Blackstrap BBQ

Blackstrap BBQ



Man, sometimes you just want to eat some barbecue, ya know? I'd eat a lot if there were great barbecue joints, like, within walking distance. I'm hungry but I'm lazy. Right now I wish Blackstrap BBQ was a lot closer than Winthrop, MA:
Blackstrap BBQ offers top quality slow-smoked barbecue in a variety of authentic American regional styles.  Blackstrap BBQ will honor the tradition of slow smoked barbecue with knowledge, pride, & enthusiasm by providing fresh, excellent quality food in a quick manner with good cheer in a clean and friendly environment.

But what makes me want to go there now, and eat a lot of meat, is this entry on WeAreNotMartha.com, which just has picture after picture of tasty-looking barbecue and sides. You owe it to yourself to go and drool. And go read their post on white beer cookies. Yum.

Firefox Gone Mobile

Firefox Gone Mobile



Today seemed like a good day to mention Firefox, what with the release of Firefox 4. You may not know yet that they have a mobile browser nicknamed Fennec and now called Firefox Mobile. Just like in the sticker, go to http://firefox.com/m to get it. I did. It's available for Android and also Maemo for you Nokia minitablet guys.

Firefox Mobile is tiny and fast. That's why they made this incredibly cute sticker. You can see how the new Internet Explorer 9 suffers by not having an animal mascot. Microsoft, get on that.

WordPress Born In Texas

WordCamp Texas

WordCamp Texas?



That's a nice sticker. Iconography, typography, color. I initially thought this was a WordCamp Texas sticker, except a peek at WordCamp Central says there's no Texas WordCamp, but instead an Austin, Dallas and maybe a Houston edition. So I'm gonna take this as another in the series of WordPress narrative-building stickers for the big interactive festival that is held every year in Austin, South By South West, (SXSW). It's hard not to see that logo as a brand after seeing this sticker, and by brand I mean in the old-fashioned, seared-cattle-flesh thing. And it's so big it's nearly bursting through Texas' borders. That's some sass ya got there, WordPress!

Kleinpeter Sweetie Pie

Kleinpeter Sweetie Pie



I think this is such a cute sticker! That's a cow named Sweetie Pie at Kleinpeter Dairy Farms in Louisiana. She got her name from suggestions from Kleinpeter fans. Look at that perfect heart on her forehead! Kleinpeter is a cool dairy farm that takes special care of their cows:
We are committed to the highest standards of dairy processing for our product line of Kleinpeter milk and Kleinpeter milk products, and the kindest treatment of the cows which make up our herd. We’re proud to be the first dairy farm in Louisiana to have been independently certified as being Free Farmed by the American Humane Association.

Our promise to you, the consumer, is that our milk comes from cows not treated with rBGH, (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone).

So it's good milk from drug-free cows who aren't stuck in pens or anything like that. Sweetie Pie at least looks happy up there, but maybe that's because she's a celebrity.
