After 6 years and the application of thousands of stickers, Websticker’s company car, the Sticker Mobile, is officially fully dressed. The stickers came primarily from Websticker clients and represent a collage of Americana with logos, slogans, art and opinions. Though originally conceived as the ultimate sticker promotional vehicle the resulting spectacle turns out to be more about being a fun work of art. Everyone smiles, points and waves when the Sticker Mobile drives by.
The Sticker Mobile is a ’72 VW Bug and was originally found for sale by the side of the road in Montpelier, Vermont. Something about the car screamed, “cover me with stickers.” Each year the Websticker team has focused on covering one specific section of the car. It started with covering the hood in 2011. This year, the last remaining real estate, the drivers side fender was finished off in June, just in time for the annual Moscow 4th Of July Parade.
The project will never be actually “completed” as there is always another fun sticker to add and ongoing maintenance to keep the car fresh and current. The car can’t travel far these days, but it’s a project that is dear to our hearts – spreading positive vibes and the power of stickers.
Many people ask who that is sometimes driving the Sticker Mobile or seen waving from the back seat? That is Ned, Websticker’s Director of Goodwill & Positive Vibes. A Ned Sticker Campaign is underway to spread the fun far beyond where an antique VW Bug can travel. Ned and his positive messages have already been sighted all across the world, in China, New Zealand, Cuba, Nicaragua, Mexico, Vietnam, Argentina, Italy, Spain, Canada, Australia, Cayman Islands, Netherlands and, of course, all across the US.
