'' It has hmg been recognized by the advertising fraternity (hat LOCATION is the first principal in advertising. Mark well
your lousiness location ilnd all your other forms of advertising become more effective.
" i The ordinary painted sign over a doorway of a shop is well enough in its way announcing the name and business of the occu
pant to those close at hand, Jmt the ELECTRIC SIGN, being easilv legible for hundreds of feet, reaches out insistently and com
pels the attention of tliose passing at a distance. Therefore, EVEN IN ITS SIMPLEST PORMS, it becomes more than an ordin
ary sign: IT CONVEYS AN ADVERTISING MESSAGE.
Medford merchants are beginning to realize the value of this rapidly growing medium. In a certain western city where the
pTice paid for the elcqtric current is more than it is here, 51 of the ground floor locations in the business sections are marked
by electric signs over their doors. This does not take into consideration tho dozens of roof signs. This city is tvpical of the
MODERN TREND and is but ail average example. '! "
The question is often asked -whether electric advertising is befer than newspaper advertising. The two arc not to be coin
pared nor arc they competitive. All live newspapers use electric signs. '
ELECTRICITY will make a POOR LOCATION a GOOD ONE. Human beings are like moths, attracted .by light. Don't
overlook the secondary effect of ono of these signs in lighting your show windows
This form of advertising WORKS WHILE CLERKS ARE OFF DUTY, whjlc everybody is off duty, and has time, liesurc
and inclination to observe. Electric' signs cVoii tltf most artistic ones, are now IN REACH of Medford business men.
W.e have now on display IN THE WINDOW of Jlaskins" Drug Store, a number of the accepted standard varieties of electric
signs. This display is placed to afford an opportunitv of comparison and if possible to fit the PROPER SIGN to your PARTICU
LAR NEEDS. - '"A'' r ,
