Futon Factory

March 11, 2015

The Futon Factory is a family-owned business that operates a futon store on 196th Street in Lynnwood, Wash.  To inform potential customers of the high-quality and attractive furniture at their store, the owners of the Futon Factory—David Bolles, his wife Monica DeRaspe Bolles, and John DeRaspe—hired a sign-holder to stand with a sign on nearby 44th Avenue, which typically has more traffic than 196th Street.  The sign holder waved to folks and stood on the street corner on weekends when traffic was highest because of the commercial nature of the area.  The sign he held contained commercial information on both its front and back.
