IBM brand bumper sticker paper and what my new one says, hehehehe...
It's water resistant.

It's fade resistant.

Heck, using my own $700 printer whose inks will last up to 80 years without fading if kept behind glass, haven't faded one shade since I printed the stickers for my car 10 months ago. (the paper's a slightly different color but the ink is the same.)

My new bumper sticker reads:

"My 1995 junkheap gets 28MPG.
How much does your 2003 SUV/Hummer get? :evilgrin:
Was that big tax break worth it? :eyes:
http://www.hummerteam.com/mpg.asp "
(a link for them to not remember and use, hehehehe...)

My route to work routinely takes me across the path of not one but FOUR Hummer vehicles. A lot of SUVs too, I drive through the "Valley of the Neo-Yuppie". :scared:

One problem though. IBM markets these as 'temporary use only' and 'easy to remove'. That's a lie, the paper sticks to the car like desperate-man-on-hooker.

2. Best Buy definitely sells it
I haven't seen it at COmpUSA though... :-( It's definitely an IBM brand - or, rather, IBM told somebody else to make it and then IBM stamped its name on the front...

Actually, it's still too cold to remove the stuff. When it gets up to 70 degrees, it might then be safe to remove, without the paper sticking so you end up peeling away and breaking off 50000 pieces... Bodyshops know how to get them off safely too.
