Advertising banner on street furniture

Advertising banner on street furniture

Didn't find your answer?

On my way to the office I see the same banner every day on a public railing. It says "Breakfast for 2 £10". It is a tasteful canvass banner with pictures. Many people passing by see it - cyclists, motorists and pedestrians. Exposure is brilliant.

First thought- is it legal to put a banner on a public railing? Is it one of those where local authority is not bothered?

Has anyone tried a tasteful public banner for accountancy services? I am thinking about this. I would be breaking the law? What would be the implications?

BTW I did have breakfast at the place advertised after being exposed at to it  so many times.

Thanks

Local byelaws

There can be local byelaws regarding attachments to street furniture.

Cambridge regarding bicycles being chained to street furniture (signs indicate when / where allowed / banned).

Walsall regarding posters attached to street lamp standards. (local carnivals caught out by this one, but under the "do as we say, not as we do" principle there were no apparent problems with politicians election posters).

I wouldn't bother

I have never banner advertised for accountancy, although I had a huge very distinctive office sign and I wasted a ton of cash advertising in the early days. My absolute conviction about this idea would have to be, don't bother!

Impressions

What impression would this give, and would you really want the kind of clients it might attract ?

In my area

the local authority allows the sponsorship of roundabouts, the sponsor paying for its upkeep in return for having a sign opposite each entry/exit road.

Not the way to go

Thanks for taking the time to responsd. On reflection, I agree this is not the best way to go for image etc.

JCresswellTax as you say you have the ignore option. The other option which I think is far better just do not read my thread.

Why do you read my threads JCresswellTax?

I fail to understand. You have commented many times in similar vain, yet you read my threads. I have mentioned in many threads that  my threads will not change. They clearly annoy you. Please don't read my threads. Just move on. Why do you gain by making such comments?

The principal parts of a loom are the frame, the warp-beam or weavers beam, the cloth-roll, the heddles, and their mounting, the reed. The warp-beam is a wooden or metal cylinder back of the loom on which the warp is wound.On a conventional loom, the weft thread is carried on a pirn, in a shuttle that passes through the shed. A handloom weaver would propel the shuttle by throwing it from side to side with the aid of a picking stick, on a power loom the "picking? is done by rapidly hitting the shuttle from each side using an overpick or underpick mechanism controlled by cams.Logo Design | Web Banner Design
