Are Bumper Stickers a Thing of the Past?

It seems like these days, you see less decals and stickers on bumpers, and more on windows.  Is it because bumpers have been visually eliminated in the manufacturers designs?  Or is it just that people’s tastes have changed?

We happen to think that it’s a combination of the two.  You can’t deny that the only vehicles you really notice bumpers on, are trucks and SUVs.  Most car’s bumpers blend in very well with their rear panels, and don’t really draw attention like they used to.  They tend to flow with the curves of the vehicle these days, unlike the bumpers of older cars.

Let’s be real though.  People’s tastes have changed, along with modern styling.  Most prefer to draw more attention to the sleek curves of their tinted rear windows, which provide a higher contrast, and make decals and stickers “pop” even more.

So, maybe bumper stickers are on the decline, but they have slowly transformed themselves into rear window stickers.  Changing and adapting to an evolving world, yet still being utilized to their full extent.

A Prehistoric Touch

Those of us who remember our early childhood were fascinated with dinosaurs, (okay, more typically boys than girls) and were always surrounding ourselves with them using our imagination, or the wide variety of dinosaur toys that always seemed to be at hand.

We all remember toys like this, and you still see children playing with similar toys these days

Well, here at Vinyl Disorder, we decided to take it to the next level, and ask: Why stop at toys?  Why not decorate yours, or your children’s walls, windows, and mirrors with dinosaur vinyl decals?  They’re a great, affordable, removable decoration choice, and they’re easy to apply!

The murals can be either single color die cut decals like these:

Stegosaurus Sticker
A gentle herbivore
Raptor Wall Mural Sticker
A very aggressive carnivore

Or they can be printed multi color decals like these:

Tyrannosaurus Rex Sticker
Look at the teeth on this guy
Pterodactyl Sticker
A menacing bird
Dinosaur Bite Decal
Chomper

A Tight Supercoss Turn

Motocross or Supercross?

When it comes to dirt bike (off road motorcycle) racing, there are two main types of racing; Motocross, and Supercross.  Each of these race types have different advantages depending on the spectator’s opinion.

Motocross races are held on closed off-road circuits.  This extreme sport evolved from the Motorcycle Trials in the United Kingdom.  It is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world, and is held in all weather conditions.

Pinned through the Turn

The tracks usually consist of large up hill climbs, steep downhills, and huge air sections.  Adding the variables of rain and snow make these courses even more thrilling to watch.

Supercross races are just as physically demanding, and are held on man-made dirt tracks made with massive, steep jumps, and obstacles.  The professional races are held mainly within professional football and baseball stadiums, with a few exceptions.

A Tight Supercoss Turn

They tend to have tighter turns and require more technical prowess than motocross tracks due to the limited space of the arenas and stadiums.

Whoops, Doubles, Tripples

There are other styles of dirt bike races, but we’ll save that for another time.

Here at Vinyl Disorder we carry all types of motorcycle racing decals and stickers that are used for many applications, weather it be a big wall mural decal, or a small decal for your car window.  We even have a Dirt Bike Family Set that our fans absolutely enjoy!  Feel free to view our selection, and tell us what you think.

Create Your Very Own Sticker

Most people have never heard of a sticker designer, let alone the one we created for our customers and fans at Vinyl Disorder; so we’re going to cover some of the basics for those of you who are interested in making your very own, unique, custom sticker for your business, sports team, or for your own personal enjoyment.

We will be using the Vinyl Disorder Sticker Designer to do this.

To begin, it is important to point out the fact that most consumers do not realize that a custom sticker can be as simple as a basic shape like a circle, with a single back round color, and some text like “Vote for Tom”.

The first step is to choose from a couple dozen shape templates.

Next, it is time to upload almost any image to use as your back round (keep in mind that JPEG images with a low resolution will begin to look pixelated as you exceed their organic size) you can also choose from one of our free clip art designs that are there just for your own creative use.

Now is a good time to add any text that you would like to be on the sticker.  There are many fonts to choose from.  A great tip to remember here is to hold the shift key when you are expanding or contracting selected items in your design.  This will keep everything to scale and prevent stretching.

From there, choose your back round and or border colors, and rotate your various design elements until you achieve the look you had imagined.

All that is left to do now, is choose how many stickers you would like to be printed, and proceed to checkout.  Your stickers will now be printed on some of the best color printers and materials by our experts, who are passionate about everything that is created by Vinyl Disorder.

Keep in mind that you can upload any pre-designed sticker files that you may have to eliminate most of the design process.  You need only to choose your template, and align it.
