Stickers - Original Official Bi Rite Enterprises
Hi, up for auction here is a superb mint and official KISS - Love Gun ‘Poster Put On’ sticker by ‘Bi Rite Enterprises Inc’ of Chicago that’s seldom seen in England. It measures a large 8 ½” x 9 ¾” (21.6cm x 24.7cm).
(*Please note, the photos used are of the actual Love Gun sticker for sale).
This was produced during the tidal wave of KISS merchandise that appeared in the U.S. in 1977- 78. Manufactured by ‘Bi Rite Enterprises Inc’ Chicago, Illinois 60608’; this information is printed in white on the bottom right corner border. The left corner border has printed - also in white: ‘Ó KISS Aucoin Mgmt., Inc. All Rights Reserved‘. * A bit of ‘trivia’ on this particular sticker; it ‘shows’ a bit more of the Love Gun artwork at the bottom than the actual L.P. cover itself! You can see more of the ‘women’s’ legs, etc, and the ‘mist’. J
As for the condition, I’m a collector myself and pretty critical when it comes to rating items. Having said this, I’d class this sticker as excellent ’plus/ near mint. It’s glossy as new and has no signs of wear, staining or sun fading whatsoever. All four (4) corners are very sharp; not dinged or dog eared. The slightest thing to note is a light ’bend’ on the bottom left corner. It can only be seen when turned towards light, otherwise the black background where the ’ladies’ are hides this. It’s the same story for the reverse of the sticker. The original light brown backing paper is 100% intact with NO peeling, lifting, etc. The ‘’CHEMBAK’ manufactures logo is printed in light red in a diagonal pattern across the paper. It has never been stuck on a wall or in a photo album, etc, so there are no blue tac marks or sellotape stains on the ’paper at all. Overall rating is a firm 8. 5 out of 10.
Originally, in the U.S., these stickers were sold shrink wrapped or sealed on a backing card that was approximately 2” (5cm) bigger all round than the sticker. However, it seems a lot of stores removed the ‘card - maybe to stack/display them better? The backing cards were pretty generic though and had NO mention or picture/photo of KISS, etc. The company produced many different subjects as stickers, so all cards were identical. *There were actually three (3) KISS stickers produced by ’Bi Rite’; all available separately - this one (Love Gun), U.S. Tour & ’Live II’.
Wonder how many of these were stuck on school lockers, binders, etc in the U.S. back in the day? J . If memory serves, I think a Love Gun sticker can be spotted in Lex’s basement in the film ‘Detroit Rock City’. Also seem to recall Sebastian Bach (ex Skid Row) had a KISS ‘Poster Put On’ on one of his car’s - might’ve been a black Camaro?!
Well, there you have it - a great, unused vintage AUCOIN sanctioned KISS item from the 1970’s for the KISS collector/aficionado . *Also great for potential U.K. bidders as they won’t have to pay the thick end of 8 quid upwards for postage as it would cost if it came from the U.S.! J
I will post/ship this sticker in VERY strong packaging (inside a cardboard ’photo mailer’ envelope) WORLDWIDE! After the auction, the item and packaging will be weighed at the post office and the winner will be notified of the EXACT postage cost, purely depending on their location.
*NO hidden extras, I do NOT charge for ANY packing materials, etc. Please check my feedback and bid with confidence - thanks for looking and good luck!
Payment Details: I’m happy to accept - U.K. winner; cheque, postal order or PayPal.
U.S.A. Canada & ‘Rest Of World’ winner; PayPal.
