Thoughts on this slogan please..

"Often Imitated... Never Duplicated"

Would you put this on your fliers, truck or whatever? Too bold of a statement, stupid or other...... ?

Thanks

it sounds too cocky. every time i hear anyone say that at work as a joke, i just think, "Lame and stupid"...no offense.

tom, i'd 99.9% guarantee that that specific phrase is trademarked in various iterations, so it would depend on how good your attorney is.

It does sound a little on the bold side. I would think the average customer would like confident but be intimidated by cocky. JMO

On a separate note I was thinking a funny name and slogan for a company could be:

S&M Lawn Care

"We will WHIP your lawn into shape"


Hey, sex sells.
