    I'm looking for homesteady-type bumper stickers. Things like ''Eat Natural" or "Support Local Farmers" that kind of stuff. I've found a few at internet sticker stores, but they are harder to find than I thought. If anyone knows where I can get some stickers like this, please let me know.

    Thanks
    Jena

    The Canadian co-operative wool growers Co. sells one "Eat Canadian Lamb 20,000 coyotes can't be wrong", but it's pretty specific to folks like me! Maybe we should make one for this site etc.?

    I usually just lurk and read all the posts, but I thought I'd let you know Alternatives for Simple Living has some great bumper stickers.
    Some of my favorites:

    Northern Sun has a great print catalog and is online as well. The print catalog gets carried around a lot by visitors to our house. It just sucks you in. There are pages of bumper stickers. Find them at NorthernSun.com
    They are out of Minnesota I believe. I have ordered repeatedly from them over the years with great success.

    The wool association used to have a great one:

    Real Men Don't Wear Polyester!

    And then of course all the outdoor clothes started being made out of synthetics.

    Sigh.

    Ours says "Got Milk?" Which made DH mad because some small change was subtracted from the milk check to pay for such fluff. We had some interesting conversations about consumers and marketing and advertising.

    I did try ebay. didn't find any that I liked, but I'll have to keep checking.

    I found some at stickergiant.com, but he had only a few of the ones I liked.

    I got a great fridge magnet...a cow and a cutesy baby chick. Cows is saying "Eat Chicken!" Chick is saying "Eat Beef!" I wanted more and was going to offer them for sale with my meat.

    The bumper stickers are to add some pizzazz to my ugly gray trailer. I can't afford to get it painted, so I figured that would at least do something with it.

    I purchased some printing paper at an office supply store that was made specially for the purpose of printing your own bumper stickers. I used it to recreate missing decals on an antique chainsaw I was restoring. Create your own message in a word processing program print it in your own choice of colors, cut it to the desired shape and size and spray on a clear coat sealer available in aerosol cans. Works pretty well.

    well, I got my bumperstickers from stickergiant and...

    I didn't check sizes cuz I figured a bumpersticker would be bumpersticker size! I was wrong! A few of them are about 1" X 5". Pretty small! Oh well....back to the sticker hunt.
