Having a prosperous business highly depends on the custom signage you use and the way you use it. Our goal is to attract those who don’t know you and may not otherwise notice your brand among a crowd of stores. So don’t be shy and reel them in with your creative and humorous signage.

You can use funny car wrapping decals, chalkboard signs, directional signage or hanging displays to personalize your establishment and draw the attention of your target group towards your business.

1. Chalkboard Signs

Chalkboard signs generally go under the category of A frame signs, also referred to as sandwich boards. The A frame chalkboard sign is one of the most popular and cost-effective ways to attract customers. You can draw, write and modify creative promotions on them as many times as you wish. Mixing in a bit of your own quirk and humor will ensure good laughs and success. They can be effectively used as event signs as well.

  • Love poetry and music? Improvise!

Replacing the words from poems or songs with your keywords is easier than you might think. If you know the classics and follow modern hits, your wit will surely keep up. If you offer a product with lots of competition, the best way to stand out is with humor. Using famous lines is another trick to win the hearts of people and make a good impression for your business.

2. Vehicle Decals

Show people the unique finds available in your restaurant, pub, café, etc. Car decals are advertisements on wheels. Knowing your business is one thing, whereas how to sell your product is another thing. When promotions can coexist with humor, crowds at your full venue will, too. Use car decals to boost your brand awareness and surprise your clients with funny gems. You can use a humorous template or create your own according to your taste and style. Both will bring in the new and old regulars.

Here’s a hilarious way to keep rush hour running smoothly.
