Don't make this stupid mistake
« on: October 25, 2008, 07:12:24 AM »
While snarfing a pizza, I picked up a new wall calendar, one where the months flip, but the bottom ad stays put.  It said:

HAPPY HOLIDAYS
from
HALL'S SERVICES
(Phone number)

Whoever accepted this ad needs to be smacked.  Someone paid hundreds of dollars for advertising, and might just as well set fire to their money to keep warm.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS = Only makes sense when you're handing them out.  Why is it there the rest of the year?

from = waste of a line. if it wasn't "from", why would someone pay to put their name on it?

HALL'S SERVICES = What does this tell me?  If I don't already know this company, in which case I don't need a calendar reminding me, I have no idea where they are or what they do.  Maybe I, a new customer, would like to check them out because they gave me a nice calendar.  Asking me to call a toll number and say "hi, what business are you in?" is awkward, at the very least.

I usually do click action pens from myron.com.  If you ever buy from these folks you'll get free samples several times a year.  They even engrave your samples like your previous order.  I got a sample of their featured product a couple days ago.
