Memorabilia of the Week: Tyranny For You Stickers

Here is another one of those 'iconic' Front 242 items: the "Tyranny >For You<" stickers.
These were sold in the Transmission 242 catalogue as a set of 6 for the price of 100 BEF/$3.00 US.
They were available in both 'white' and the negative 'black', although you could not really specify which you wanted. They were also often placed in orders as freebies and extra goodies.
Each sticker measures about 2.5 by 3.25 inches ( 6.5 by 8 cm)

Not only are these a great design, but they are very functional and up the 'cool' factor when placed on just about anything...computers, car bumpers, windows, etc.

You don't see these quite as often anymore, as they are a 'disposable' commodity. A great souvenir from a great 242 era!

If you need a crash-course in their meaning, they are: (Left to Right)
