    'Free' car sticker


    If you want to be a loud and proud MoneySaver, then you're welcome to grab one of our car window stickers. This is the third incarnation and the slogan was suggested and voted for by MoneySavers. (See the original vote).





    Please send an SAE


    By doing this you're helping spread the word about the site, so to say thanks we wanted to keep the sticker totally free.

    Yet we would ask that to get it you send a stamped self-addressed envelope to get the sticker back to you. To fit it will need be an A4 envelope, which needs a 69p stamp for 2nd class (90p 1st class).

    If the envelope's smaller than A4, we'll need to fold your sticker. Though do fold your envelope when you post to us - that way you can use a cheaper stamp to send it .

    First come, first served

    It's purely first come first served basis. We've nearly 10,000 available, but please only apply if you are actually going to put the sticker on your car. There are plenty of stickers left and we keep a tight track on this. If ever stocks get low, this will be changed so you know.

    Send a stamped self addressed A4 envelope to:

    Car Sticker
    MoneySavingExpert.com
    19-22 Rathbone Place
    London, W1T 1HY

    Only one sticker will be sent per envelope to make it fair.

    Hope you like them,

    Martin

    Clearer now...............or both the same? I think the red is slightly clearer.

    ................it just reminds me of the eyesight checks by the optician.

    I'll look forward to receiving a stcker and putting it in the car. How things have changed since the early days of MSE car stickers.

    What a nice idea are these the kind that once they're stuck they're pretty much.... well, stuck lol, or are they easy to remove to put on my next car?

    third one! I've changed cars recently so this one will have pride of place the others did come off the old car but aren't reuseable really, the black one split in half and the yellow one had really faded

    stamps are 61p first class or 47p second class for an A4 envelope (large letter)

    not quite sure where 42p or 52p comes from?

    So not quite FREE as the title would state (I thought Martin got annoyed of people advertising things as free in the freebies board even though you had to pay P&P. Isn't this why another board was created?)

    Still good stickers though and I will be sending an SAE in

    When an A4 size envelope is asked for what size is that?
    Is it the size of an A4 sheet of paper when flat?

    I thought envelope sizes were C-something.

    Do you have a poster as well?
    I would like to put a poster advertising this site on our noticeboard at work. Do you have something I can download from the site - I've had a look and can't see anything.

    Thanks

    I'm going to put one on my house front door to hopefully deter the plague of NPower salesmen/women who are under the mistaken belief that I'm the only one missing out on their incredible energy price offers......not!

    Got my sticker today, it only took 2 weeks second class both ways.

    It looks good and it feels good to me to have something that I have suggested as a possible slogan actually put into production.



    Actual size by the way is 270mm x 64mm so a smaller envelope than that suggested is possible if you can get one.

    For a sheet of FOLDED A4 you need a DL size envelope (that's A4 folded in 3.) C6 would be A4 folded into 'quarters'.
    Other than that they are sized in C, you're quite right, Braveheart.
    so the equivalent for an unfolded piece of A4 is C4...

    I'm a bit of a stationery geek. I shall send for one ASAP.

    And CONGRATULATIONS on having YOUR slogan chosen, Torbrex!
