The first bumper stickers were mainly designed to attract tourists. For example, in the 1940s and 1950s, famous destinations had stickers that recreated their signs. The staff would simply walk around the parking lot and attach the promotional sticker to every car that came to visit.
However, people soon realized that this surface can be used for other purposes as well. Bumper stickers to express political support were introduced in the 1952 presidential election between Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson II. Now they can be commercial, religious, secular, humorous, or in support of various sports teams and other organizations.
