Most bumper stickers are worthy of all the eye rolls they get.
Having a “Honk if You Love Jesus” or “Honor Roll Parent” bumper sticker is the automotive equivalent of wearing socks with sandals. Or just wearing Crocs. Ew.
There are plenty of more creative choices out there, and we have picked out a few clever bumper stickers that you won’t be embarrassed about.
For all you #SaveTheManuals folk, this bumper sticker from Blipshift is a great one. I don’t love political bumper stickers, but electing to be a self-shifter is a movement I can support. I personally have this sticker on my own car, a five-speed manual, and I got it as a birthday present. I actually think it increases the resale value of my crappy hatchback…
Blipshift has a ton of really clever and affordable sticker designs, so check them out.
Absolutely no one will understand this bumper sticker right away, and that’s kind of its charm. Designed by AutoGuide.com‘s own Detroit Bureau Editor Craig Cole and his trusty cameraman Ben Sanders, this one is punny. (If you don’t get it, say Kathy Turr really fast…)
Can you tell I’m a Futurama fan? Tell everyone you’re a courier for Planet Express with this super nerdy and awesome sticker. The best part is that only other Futurama fans will understand this sticker, and it’s fun to be part of a secret club of weird nerds.
I can’t decide if this one is cute or creepy. Either way, it’s definitely different and will likely get a good chuckle from passersby on the road, and if you have kids, they might like this, too! Check it out here.
Another nerdy suggestion for all those X-Files fans out there, this one is for people nostalgic for the adventures of Mulder and Scully. I once had a blue fish and a red fish named Mulder and Scully (of course the red one was Scully), so perhaps I’m too nerdy for my own good and shouldn’t be suggesting bumper stickers for you fine people. Check it out here.
As if my nerdy suggestions weren’t incriminating enough, here’s a funny Star Wars one! Like I said, I don’t love political bumper stickers, but this one is just too good to pass up. I also love this “Pew Pew Pew” one, this adorable Day of the Dead Stormtrooper, and this Lego Stormtrooper one.
For the love of all that is holy, if you insist on having a stick family sticker on your car, please please please pick one that’s not as cliche as the others one. I suggest this cute Stig family one, because Top Gear. Also, there’s a duck wearing a helmet, which is delightful even if you don’t like Top Gear.
A T-Rex wearing a top hat riding an old-timey bicycle. Need I say more?
REALISTIC BACON BUMPER STICKER. To show everyone how much you love this fatty, salty, porky goodness.
Last but not least, here’s a neat new gadget: a digital bumper sticker that you can change depending on your mood. Users can download designs from the Sticker Store or create their own using a smartphone app. The images are static (meaning no videos) and the device can store up to 25 different images, which can be scheduled to run whenever you want.
