Local Printer Selling Bernie Cutouts for ‘Yardi Gras’ Decorations


NEW ORLEANS – Commercial printing company Crystal Clear Imaging said it has an unexpected hit item on its hands: printed cutouts of Bernie Sanders, the iconic U.S. Senator from Vermont, in his famous “chilly with mittens” pose from the Jan. 20 Inauguration of President Joe Biden. Apparently, locals are using the signs as “Yardi Gras” decorations during this unusual 2021 Carnival season.

“New Orleanians are warming up to the idea of ‘Cold Bernie’ on their lawns, in their homes and just about anywhere the freestanding cutout will fit,” said Arthur Boisfontaine of Crystal Clear Imaging. “The sign measures two feet by four feet and is a COVID-friendly guest. He will always test negative. Guaranteed.”

Signs are $30. Crystal Clear said it will donate a portion of proceeds to hunger nonprofits. Visit ccimaging.net to order.
