Blenko Stickers

New to collecting, I buy only 60-90s Blenko and Viking Glass.
Can you tell me what a Blenko sticker should look like?  My glass has a small white price tag that says Blenko.  Is this what you mean?
Blenko has used many stickers,  go to the Blenko Collectors Four website for a list and photos of the stickers used by Blenko.  
Having or not having a sticker does not determine Blenko.  Read the on line article by Damon C. 
about how to spot fakes.  Blenko Archives and Blenko Museum and Blenko Collectors Four and Blenko Project all have information devoted to the new collector.
Good Luck.

Very few after market glass items have the sticker.
Blenko was made to be used.
I recently read in an old catalog 53 I think where it said the salad bowl was made to be used outdoors.
No mention of in the yard, my Blenko leaf bowl bird bath has now spend 7 Northeastern winters in my patio.
Blenko is factory glass and not glass art, regardless of what Glassdoc tells you.
Blenko is like the old VW beetle
glass for the people.
