I searched........ I know there's a thread about this.... somewhere on here.... I suck at searching on here........


Anyway........ I was wondering how many of us have a tagline for the business or a slogan??

The Fam and I recently visited with Mar up in Buffalo. We were driving to her shop when Elyot pointed out a pizza place called...."Mustachio's" beneath the name.......
"The best thing RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE!" It had us cracking up! :p

Seems everywhere we went each place had one...... Niagra Falls... "Oldest State Park in America"
Can't remember what the Baseball Hall of Fame was......

Anyway you get my point........ I'm trying to come up with some ideas of a slogan or tagline for my biz...... Wanted to see what all the G'ers have done! Whatcha got grumble land??? :popc:

A combination restaurant and gas station on US 31 north of Indianapolis has a sign saying...


"Eat Here. Get Gas!"

Street Sweeper this AM.
"Caution Driver Asweep"

Sewer truck

"1500 gallons of you know what" as well as "#1 in #2!!" Their porta pots have a stop light on them that sports "Stop and Go". They are great people, very funny :)

Don't know how we can compete with those. Unless we could get a clever play on the word "framed" that didn't bring up thoughts of "over priced","forced into" or "tricked into something"...

We don't need a tagline; our sign says it all.

Anyone else kicking themselves for not putting "framing" in their business name? :faintthud:

Mine is "Celebrating, Preserving and Restoring Life's Treasured Moments".

In my business cards I have "Celebrate - Preserve - Restore"

Nope Nic, instead of kicking myself I changed the shop name years ago. When I purchased the business it was Tracy's Other Place. I first changed it to Tracy's Art & Frame then to FrameMakers of _______. I did this so that I have a verbal map in the name. The location that I kept is FrameMakers of Powell, but I also had FrameMakers of Gahanna & FrameMakers of Clintonville.

I haven't used a tag line for quite a while but I did use Creating Tomorrow's Heirlooms...Quality that Lasts!

Here's some of my favorites:

If you give a sh**, frame it.

So what if it only cost twenty bucks. We wouldn't charge you more if it cost $20,000.

We frame ugly stuff too.

No, we're not doctors.

Your frame here.

Today's treasures; next month's statement

You can't have any pudding if you don't eat your meat

It will look like a miillion bucks, but we'll only charge you half million.

Boy, you gonna do sum prayin' for me.

Sure your kids are ugly, but they'll look a lot better in a nice frame.

This is something I made up in my early framing days and have used it to get a point across to my customers and on ads for years. It works especially well for those who pick out a $500 frame job for a $5 puzzle....which one of my customers once did. That puzzle looked so good I would have put it on my own wall.

How about something along the lines of "They say a picture is worth a thousand words, we frame it for a lot less". Or simply, "Pictures are worth a thousand words, we frame it for a lot less".

If you own art, be smart. It's a shame if you don't put it in a frame.

Apparel, art, antiques and collectables belong under glass. We frame it all, and we will do it with class.

This popped into my head. It doesn't really apply to the picture framing industry. "If you don't like the taste of glass, don't drive with your head up your ###" LOL Sorry if anyone is offended. Just a small battle with road rage this morning.

it was not really a slogan, but i once had bumper stickers that read "Picture Framers do it under glass".

Hi Nic,
I have a tagline: its on my website, window, sandwich board, business cards and back of my t-shirt!
"If We Can Lift It, We Can Frame It"

How about this:"Just don't display it, frame it"

How about a t-shirt with a picture of a frame on the back and front. All around the frame with an arrow pointing toward it, you have different things that can be framed. Example:Family photos with an arrow toward frame, souveneirs with an arrow toward frame, children's art, expensive art, jerseys, collectables, heirlooms, magazines, newspapers all with the arrow pointing toward frame. That is a winning idea right there folks.

This works best girl to girl........... So how much does he spend on golf?

Doug
That's a good one. So true. Or how about, "If you really want to see expensive frames, go pick out eyeglasses."

:cool: Rick

I sometimes use "Expert design assistance and friendly, personal service in a relaxed atmosphere."
Years ago I used to use, "Distinctive quality custom framing, at a fair price, with friendly, personal service."
I don't mention price anymore at all.

Hi Nic,

"If We Can Lift It, We Can Frame It"
My framing business card and some of my ad's had "you name it, we frame it" on them.

We wont tell your husband how much you spent here......
I'd rephrase that to "We won't tell your significant other how much you spent here...."

I find that a lot of guys hide things from their wives too....I have a few who pay half in cash and the rest on cc...

Besides, I have so many gay couple customers...they'd not like the husband line

I'm sorry, but some things just don't translate well into "politically correct".

Used this slogan in a campaign ad with me standing in front of a 6'x8' quilt I had just framed along with me holding a 4"x4" print I had just framed. :thumbsup:
