Computer window stickers have been used in a Dublin street since the 1920s.
The car window decaling used to be hung in shops, restaurants and public places.
But, it has since disappeared from most buildings.
The decals have since become a popular piece of art.
Dublin artist Mandy McElroy, who created the stickers, said she had used the material for many years.
She said the window decalling had been used by her to promote her art.
“It’s a lot of fun, it makes people laugh and it makes a lot more money,” she said.
She added that the stickers are used as part of public works in Dublin.
“I can’t think of a better way to promote my work than by making people laugh.”
They have been hanging around on cars in the city since the 1930s and have been a bit of a nuisance, but I have a bit more of a sense of humour than that,” she added.
Dublins car window stickersThe Dublin artist said the material has been used as a decoration for more than 50 years.”
The stickers were actually made by me when I was in my 20s and it was a fun project.
“After a couple of years of making the stickers and trying to figure out how to use them, I started to realise they could be quite expensive, so I decided to go with acrylic instead of glass,” she explained.
“And then the car window was one of the first things I did to try and sell them as a piece of work.”
Dublin car window sticker saleThe artist has been making her own stickers since 2008 and they have been sold in many different countries including Canada, Australia and the UK.
She has also created stickers for the National Museum of Ireland.
She says the material is not only a fun and useful decoration, but it can be made in small batches.
“One of the things I like about making the car decals is that they are so easy to make,” she told RTE.
“You can have people make them and then have them sent out.”
When I am in Dublin and in other places, I make them every week, and when I go to Australia I do the same thing.
“The artist said she does not feel that the material would be as popular if it were more widely used.”
A lot of people don’t like it because they don’t know what it is, they are not sure it is good for them, but people are making them,” she noted.”
So people will probably do things that aren’t very good, but if they do the right things, people will love it.
“Mandy McAlroy said that she has used the car windows stickers in Dublin’s public spaces.”
There are a lot people that don’t use the window stickers, so it’s not really the case,” she observed.”
But the people that do use them will enjoy them.
