Most bumper stickers are PVC constructed stickers. They are almost always meant to be stuck to the bumpers of vehicles so that other people can see them. You can find bumper stickers that contain all kinds of messages; there is literally no message beyond the scope of a bumper sticker.
Bumper stickers may be used for commercial purposes, where businesses pay you money to put their stickers on your car. These arrangements are quite common nowadays, and there are companies that offer to find a business whose ad conforms to your choice. This is a good way to advertise, and public transport vehicles in many countries have been displaying this sort of advertising for decades. Only recently has the idea of using privately owned cars for this kind of advertising become popular. It is a good way to promote a business, and it is a good way to make some cash without doing anything but buying a car and driving it.
Bumper stickers are also often used for religious purposes. You've probably seen those old cars that are decorated with bumper stickers promoting either an apocalypse or another impending religious event. More commonly, drivers might put one or two well articulated religious stickers on their cars. If the reading is made interesting, long traffic jams become bearable for the driver in the vehicle behind you. It's a way to do some promotion of your particular religious beliefs on the go.
Custom sticker printing can be used to produce some of these bumper stickers. For example, political campaigners will ask you to promote their candidates by placing their bumper stickers on your vehicle. Drivers who support the contender may be happy to put a bumper sticker or two on their car, turning their vehicle into a mobile campaign tool for their favorite candidate.
