What sort of painter are you after?

By johnboy - 18 May 2009 13

As sighted in Cook.

Call me crazy, but if you were after a painter, would you perhaps go for one who painted a better sign on the side of the van?

Or are they advertising a certain cheap and cheerful sort of service?

What’s Your opinion?

Hopefully the quality of their works speaks for them, rather than the signage on their van…

At least their sign has correct spelling, maybe they could give ASIO and The Canberra Times a few lessons…

This service would be far better than an outfit called Persian Painting Services who put a handbill in our postbox today. It also had a large logo which looked like a nazi eagle with an Ayatolla-like figure in the middle. Certainly not the way to win friends and attract business, unless you’re after some as yet untapped terrorist market.

maybe they should speak to ali babas marketing team? scimitars are out…

wait till you go to the dentist who has rotting teeth.

…but at least we can take solace in that dentists don’t work on their own teeth [if there we only the two dentists in town and one had rotting teeth, the other pristine, choose the rotting teeth one as s/he would be the one keeping the pristine teeth in such condition!]

that said, had an orthodontist, as a kid, with the worst english breath! yeeuk, awful memories…

As long as they do the job to the quality expected, who cares what they drive.

Soccermums who dont want the soccermum next door to see a low class tradesman parked out front ?

Reminds me of the dent repair person I saw the other day in a sh!tter car with scratched paintwork 🙂

I’d suggest if he aims to succeed he’ll have low costs to his customers and deliver good quality work. We can’t all be driving around in glam company vehicles.

Maybe he relies on word of mouth.

well of course, they’re ‘painters’, not ‘sign-writers’ after all.

but agree, tacky advertising…
