A message from the President of Bauer Graphics

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Neal Bauer and I am the President a Portland based graphic design studio called Bauer Graphics Funtime Emporium and Waffle Hut. Due to the current state of the economy, we can no longer afford to replace the light bulbs on our exterior signage. Because of this we have opted to change our name to simply ‘Bauer Graphics’ instead. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may cause.

We are wasting no time in 2009 in getting our message out to vendors about our new suite of services. This is why we chose the first week in March to launch this new series of initiatives.

(longer URL can be furnished upon request)

If you are still reeling from the capabilities document you have just read, please fold your arms on your desk and put your head down until the room stops spinning. Then, forward this to anyone in your organization who needs a dose of kick ass marketing, merchandising and design.

Remember, if it doesn’t say Bauer Graphics*, it should shut the hell up once in a while.
