The meaning and purpose behind “in memory of” stickers.
Stickers make us feel like a part of something bigger than ourselves. Whether a sticker depicts a victorious character, sports team, band, school, church, political affiliation, or message, it has it has it power to make people feel part of a largest group. The people who show the sticker and the people who see it and resonate with it usually like the feeling of inclusion.
Stickers are conversation starters. Stickers can spark conversations about shared interests or experiences. When you see a sticker on someone’s item, you instantly have something to talk about. The same applies to stickers in public places. People use stickers to express their interests, so it is natural for others to ask them and strike up a conversation.
Stickers allow us to describe ourselves. Personalized stickers are one of the most visually impactful ways to communicate our likes, interests and beliefs and showcase our individuality. You can tell a lot about someone based on the type of stickers they show.
The different ways people use these stickers to honor loved ones.
The most common memorial stickers I’ve seen are the large In Loving Memory decal stickers that people use to adorn a lost loved one. The are generally on the back window displaying the name and years of the lost relative. Most of them also a depict a image of something that person enjoyed ding or a hobby and many have angel wings or crosses or other such religious symbols.
Stickers make people feel appreciated. A perfect gift with purchase, stickers are a great way for businesses to show customers their appreciation for their support. In turn, recipients are often more than willing to return the favor by displaying the sticker to show their affinity for the business or brand.
Keeping the memory of their loved ones alive in simple ways is one approach individuals cope with loss. Memorial decals are one method for doing this. A memorial sticker is a sticker that commemorates a lost loved one. People frequently apply them to their cars as a means of keeping their departed relatives close.
The psychological impact of displaying these stickers on a car.
Here’s why: when you really stop and think about what these stickers are, at their very core, they are markings that identify the interests of the driver of the car. It’s like getting a tattoo, or wearing a T-shirt with some writing on it. But I’ve often found that bumper stickers go a lot further than any T-shirt that anyone would ever wear.
These are just some of the things your bumper stickers can say about you that you might not have thought of. It isn’t necessarily a bad idea to personalize your car and show pride in your family using stickers and the like. Still, it is a good idea to be careful about how much information you’re really giving away to strangers on the street. Maybe think of a more discreet way to show your interests, or have stickers that are less revealing of personal information. In the end, it’s just important to stay informed and make sure you’re really aware of what it is your telling the world about yourself.
Many people don’t think much about what they’re putting on their cars when it comes to stickers and decals. In many cases, it’s just a fun way to express yourself and personalize something that is, otherwise, rather impersonal on the exterior. How do you distinguish your Honda Civic from the next guys? The answer is generally a fun decal or a personalized license plate. Sometimes, folks want to show off their kids and express their pride in them for making the honor roll or doing well in sports. But maybe there is more to decals and personalized tags than you might think. Yes, they’re fun and show off your personality or express pride in people you love, but they can also give away more information about you than you might think.
