A few years ago we came across some spectacular vintage National Park ephemera- a small collection of window decals from a variety of parks and monuments. These stickers were given to motorists between 1918 and 1940, as a way to denote who had paid park entrance fees. The first 12 produced each featured an animal popular in that park, prompting the nickname “Zoo Windshield” decals. During the following decades 10 more parks joined the program, some of which opted for a landscape illustration such as the breaks at Bryce Canyon. 

The stickers started at 5" in diameter, but eventually NPS Director Stephen Mather became concerned with how crowded enthusiastic visitors' windshields were becoming. the decals shrunk in size several times during the program until it was discontinued in 1940.

We've scanned the originals we have, and digitally cleaned up decades of wear, to bring you the 2022 Collection including Grand Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Lassen Volcanic National Park, General Grant National Park, and Acadia National Park. These ornaments are made of full-grain leather vegetable tanned by Wickett & Craig in Pennsylvania, one of the finest tanneries in the US. We etch and finish them in our Milwaukee studio.
