Over the past four decades we have printed millions of stickers in many sizes, shapes and colors. We can also screen print in full color in 5 working days. Bumperstickers are available in several standard sizes, as listed below.

Standard glossy inks are used for screen printing in a wide range of colors. We can mail you a free chart of actual samples of all 31 of the screen printed ink colors. This will show you actual samples of the inks on the vinyl. Colors viewed on computer monitors are never accurate.

Silkscreen printing is the preferred method to print stickers. It has proven to be the best way to produce an extremely high quality sticker. Digital is best for indoor, short term use labels. Screen printed stickers last for 3 to 5 years oudoors in all weather conditions. Digital printed stickers' outdoor durability is at best 2 years. However, it is great for full color artwork that can be scanned.
• ASK us to mail you a free sample of a full color digitally-printed bumpersticker.

Only on screen printed stickers, the backing sheet (reverse side) can also be imprinted in black ink. A backing imprint "Extra Color" can be done the cost of one additional imprint color at each quantity. The backing peel-offsheet can be effectively used to include more information on an issue, a membership form, a coupon, etc. (but we cannot imprint the backing sheet on one-day rush orders – there isn't enough time in an 8 hour work day to print both sides of the stickers)
The Union Label will be imprinted when requested.

* Why the Union Label is important: It lets anyone know that these were produced in a unionized shop in the U.S., where the printers have the right to collective bargaining for workplace health, safety, gender equity and fair wages. Most workers in most businesses in the U.S. and the rest of the world do not have these rights. Less than 9% of the U.S. workforce is in a labor union. Transnational corporations increasingly "outsource" work to countries where labor unions are outlawed, violently opposed, internally co-opted or non-existent. The global sweatshop dominates and continues to grow. That's why it's important to print in union shops and support organized labor here in the U.S. and in every country.
