Not Too Late

It is not to late to jump on the advertising bandwagon.   The last to join was Warner 5 Color.  They print on most anything.  In addition, they can even print on unusually shaped objects.

I shipped Warner 5 Color a few dozen hand mirrors and provided my logo and graphics for the back of the mirror.  They are strictly printers.  Therefore you provide the product to be printed on, and they do the printing.

Back of the Mirrors

After searching all over for something to provide them, I found these small hand mirrors.  Most noteworthy, they suggested I provide something for the mirror surface too!

These are the proof photos they emailed.  I can’t wait for them to arrive.  Furthermore we will be handing these out as a “thank you” to select people along Route 66.

53 Days

53 Days

Only 53 days until Paul and I hit the road.  Things are coming together rapidly.  It is our advertisers who will help make this trip a success.


After receiving a letter from a restaurant regarding “sponsorship”, I realized some people didn’t grow up in the era when you’d hear on the radio, “This show is sponsored by Brylcream.  Just a little dab’ll do you.”  Sponsorship is another way to connote advertising.

But, since it is coming across that we’re asking for charity, from now on we’ll talk about advertising, and not sponsoring.  My apologies for the confusion it may have created.

Live Advertisements

These are  live advertisements.  You can either let me or Paul wing it, or you can supply us with ad copy that we’ll read in our videos or reprint in our blog.  Here’s an example of how we might advertise one of our “sponsors” (aka advertisers):

“Here’s a great picture Paul took of a local diner.  Paul has processed it using Topaz Lab’s Simplify.  Topaz Simplify allows you, the photographer…”

I think you get the idea.

Advertise Anywhere

You don’t have to be on Route 66 to advertise with us.  Your business can be anywhere.  We will pick up a wide viewer audience geographically.  As a result, if you are looking for customers nationwide or worldwide, this is a great opportunity.

Don’t Wait

Don’t wait too long to decide.  Our days are limited and we can only advertise a finite number of businesses and products.
