Bumper Sticker

My son Dean is going to be out of beta in just over 3 months and I've got some preparing to do. I've never understood why parent stick the crap bumper stickers about their six year olds making the honor list in a grade where bladder control is part of the curriculum. So I decided to make some stickers that I would be proud to brag about to the world. And since my child will grow up playing games that build character (and OCD) they would look like this;

This is awesome. I saw this on the daily what, I hope you don't mind if I blog it.

My child is about to go into rev. B. She'll have all new teeth and improved voice input recognition as well as upgraded voice output with improved vocabulary.

I came across this randomly on some random site thing and thought it was pretty awesome. I'm almost tempted to borrow the concept and piece together a few of my own for some of my other favorite games (if I do, I'll show you). Anyway, just thought I'd leave you a note saying I like what you've done. :)

Protonk said...

srsly make a cafepress account (or whatever the cool kids use these days) and put these up. I'll buy them.

das chupa said...

Thanks for the kind comments guys, I'm glad you like em. I have a few extras but I didn't post them so later this week I will fix em up a bit.

If you make any drop me a line, I'd love to see them!

I'll look into actually making some physical stickers and post em here!

Brandon said...

I will buy one of each. Not joking you can bill my paypal as soon as you get them printed. My offer is 30 for a pack with all 4 in it. Plus S&H of course. Please make them.

Mike said...

These are fantastic nostalgia pieces, Great Job. I am going to post them on my gaming blog if you don't mind?!

Also enjoy alot of your art and would like to pass it on to other enthusiast like myself is that is also ok.

Will be coming here often to see your stuff. Drop by Pacroid, the game blog to hear about the gaming nonsense I find on the web.

There was this old poster in my counsellor's office in high school that said "The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth".

As a major geek in highschool, I could only wish. Now, my wish has come true because the geeks are PROCREATING.

I love it. I hope to see your stickers all over the place.

On behalf of the Poke-moms who evolved into nerdcore fangirls (team Frontalot, thank you very much) I applaud you and am waiting with paypal account in hand to buy them.

My child can beat your Grue

Sadly, I never understood why parents put Terrific Kid and Honor Roll bumper stickers on their cars (usually it is the minivans) either.

Even wilder, I like (no, LOVE) this idea, but I want to submit one of my own:

"My child never used a Jugem's Cloud to skip World 3-3 in Super Mario Bros. 3"

Geeky, but delightful.

My kid is 6 months old and is excellent at playing Baby Piano on my iPad and then licking it. Got a badge for that?

The final fantasy one just made my night.

Danger Boy said...

Absolutely Brilliant.

Raymond said...

Awesome! I wanna get someone pregnant just to have an excuse to use these! =-D

André said...

This is pure awesome. I would use Quickman, though.

For my girlfriend, who's a huge Ultima fan: "My child is the Avatar"

Briget said...

These are pretty cool. I wish I knew what games my nephews play...

Jon said...

"My child doesn't use up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, B, A, start"

Evan said...

My child went camping in The Arklay Mountains

Aaron said...

Yeah, my kid plays way too many video games, but I'm always secretly proud when he beats them.

If you had these for sell now, I would have purchased the Mario one on impulse. Good work.

Rivahla said...

Speaking as a mom of an LD child, I think the production of these bumper stickers is necessary. My son will probably never excel in conventional education but he does in gaming.

Bumper stickers like these will give me a more vocal way of being proud of accomplishments he makes that no one but us sees.

Nice.

"My child is a Kingslayer"

Man, was he proud of that -- and so was I.

Ivo Beutler said...

When you have those stickers, it really shows how both you and your kid loves video games. They show that you're proud enough to show it to all the bros out there! BTW, I love the one with the Rockman/Megaman reference, though I hope you make one with Airman in it.

Granville said...

Sweet! Do you have a version that says "My son/daughter and I both..." If you put in more details from the game (like Super Mario mushrooms) that would be awesome!

This seems to be a great site which offers Bumper Stickers, Custom Stickers, Custom Vinyl Decals, Vinyl Stickers, Vinyl Decals, Custom Vinyl Decals And Custom Sticker Printing...i had been relying on Thebumpersticker.com earlier and they offered good stuff. You will be glad to work with them.

Jim Bennett said...

Nice blog sharing the information about the bumper stickers. By using custom bumper stickers you can express your sense of humor, your frustrations and even your political views has become very popular.
