Need some creative advice
« on: August 16, 2007, 11:41:11 AM »
I just purchased 400 umbrellas to hand out to our clients as little token gifts. I have to come up with a humorous caption that will be printed on the umbrellas, and I thought who better to ask, than my fellow citadellians.

my first thought was, "Rain or shine, we got you covered"  but then quickly decided thats a lame one :)

Can anyone think of any catchy phrases??

as reference, we provide IT consultants, software, and project solutions to our clients.

Thanks!

(sorry about the non-fantasy question :))

Some Serious:

Can You Stand the Rain? We can.

When it Rains, it Pours. Be Prepared

It's raining 1's and 0's

Use this for the rain, use $your_company for IT

Don't leave yourself uncovered(out in the rain), let us provide your solution

The umbrella will only get you so far, let us help you build an ark.

When work is raining down on you let us solve your troubles.

(leave me alone, we are brainstorming right?)

Thanks guys!

I like Scras' 'When it Rains, it Pours. Be Prepared' and Strolen's 'It's raining 1's and 0's'    :D

Actually, the "Use this for rain, use XYZ for IT" sounds quite catchy from the standpoint of a customer...

I was thinking putting his actual company name in there, but XYZ rhymes good. And you can sell the leftovers on e-bay.

Strolen: I /was/ intending the company name to be there. XYZ just seemed a bit more standard placeholder than $your_company.
