I want to have an informal sign party at my house one of these days.  It would basically be open to anybody with an SKMP membership that wants to come over and help the party make signs and posters.  This could be a whole lot of fun.  The Freewayblogger is giving me some cool ideas.  What do you think?  I love what this guy can do with white duct tape, spraypaint, cardboard, and a freeway.  This is my favorite pic:

This sounds like a very fun idea, maybe we could do this so that we have more great signs to display for the upcomming BBQ joint fundraiser.

It is usually a series of signs, almost like a rhyme that are put up on a roadside in sequence. Typically, they end with BurmaShave which was a product in the 50s(?) that developed the marketing techique.

The Freewayblogger web site is great!

Here's a link to the "How-to" page:
http://www.freewayblogger.com/howto.htm
(note: this is a link to the FB web site, not the blog.)

Do any of the SKMP members have an opaque projector or an overhead projector? Something like this is a HUGE time-saving device for projecting sign text from a computer printout to a large sign.

"Freeway blogging" is a great low-cost way to get the message out to a mainstream audience!

Hi Moe,

An option for a series of signs (although not rhyming) would be the harms from prohibition. Maybe the first sign says "Cannabis Prohibition Harms Society" then a series of signs with specific harms stated, and maybe a sign at the end saying "For Canada's Sake End Prohibition Now".
