Best customer request so far. “Please draw a picture of a flying dolphin on the box!” (Note: This was the very first box art request. The request that started it all. It took about a week or two after I posted this picture for another Epstein’s customer to make a similar request.)
The Harry J. Epstein Co participated in the first annual “Main Street Day”. We pulled a bunch of the big cardboard boxes out of the warehouse and lined them up on the street. Kids, teenagers and adults stopped by to help us paint, as well as carve a tunnel through the middle of the boxes with utility knives. It was 100 degrees that day, but the only one’s who seemed to notice where the adults. Enjoy the pics!
(I realize that the above sentence requires quite a bit of explanation, so here is a FAQ that should answer any questions:)
In honor of another successful Epstein’s Day, as well as having our first guest box artist, I’m posting some of my favorite box art requests in no particular order.
Thanks Charlie and thanks to everyone that participated in Epstein’s Day!
Whenever I hear a commentator on television talk about the internet, there is always this overriding message that technology is isolating us, that it is fragmenting relationships, and that if we all continue down this path, we will eventually end up alone in a room with just our computer. Well, &#*$@ those guys. What do they know. I just drew a picture of two hammers fighting to the death for my friend Jeff who I’ve never even met before.
I talk to guys all over the world about American made tools. We are just a small tool store in downtown Kansas City and we have regular customers in Thailand! THAILAND!
Ok. I just had a little too much coffee. Moving on. I would like to reiterate that if you place an order that you to can request “box art”. No extra charge. Just be sure when you receive the package to hang the picture in your living room above the fireplace and stare at it every night. Besides that, it’s completely free!
Had a customer request that I draw a “cock fight” on his box. Well, here it is.
So it was a slow day.
So, I got a box art request that said something like “please draw some art on the box. my wife does not believe that you guys do that.”
