In the 1940s and 1950s the first bumper stickers were designed to attract tourists. For example, some famous destinations had stickers that recreated their signs and then the staff would walk around in the parking lot and attach the promotional sticker to every car that was there.
But, soon people realized that the bumper stickers can be used for other purposes too. To express political support, the stickers were introduced in the 1952 presidential election between Adlai Stevenson II and Dwight D. Eisenhower. And these days, they can be religious, humorous, commercial, a support for various sports teams etc.
