    Some might find the offensive. But you will remember it.

    It will be noticed! However, you'll be alienating potential customers who remember it because of being offended by it. It makes the appearance that's the intention. Some nut bag might burn down your shop.

    Why would you care if people get offended? Are you that hard up for work?
    Stand up for what you believe!

    It makes me think of the old advertising chestnut:

    Jesus Saves!
    So why don't you at the First Federal Savings and Loan.

    I think it would be better if Jesus was holding a banner with your logo between his outstretched arms. Now thats the ticket!!

    At first glance I thought the 702 were letters, 702 didn't jump out at me.

    Don't get me wrong but I'm OFFENDED by it using Jesus to advertise for you, what are you so weak that you need a crutch to advertise to the general public

    Although catchy word plays and nice ad ..but using religion UNLESS only to that nich like churches or bible thumper business people

    It's like those people that put that fish looking graphic and display it proudly with there advertising.
    Like they believe in this or that and/or can be trusted or will be religious in thought and actions whatever ... what a bunch of bull

    If being a customer and you preach too ... and likes that fine but feels religion is a personal study

    Maybe I'm wrong but when seeing advertising like that it's only to a nich crowd

    Have looked at the thumbnail .. all you recognize ...red arrow ..then Jesus ..then black copy you can not read till closer or if bigger .. then the nice sky ..then the white copy on a light blue & cloudy white background
    ... Would say if your to use this catchy ad, contrast needs to improve

    I guess you feel the same way about people putting up rainbows to show they are a gay operated business? Are you offended by restaurants and stores that display the rainbow on their front door or window? Because if you're offended by a fish symbol, surely you'd have to logically be offended by the gay pride rainbow too, right?

    Bad idea for business. You might not think so now, but you will over time.

    Why people have to mix religion, politics, race, sexual orientation with their business, I have no idea. Negatives far outweigh any positives...always have and always will
    Unless you're catering to a specific market, don't do it. Why alienate yourself to potential customers??? Why??

    If you can't work it out for yourself, man...buy a history book.

    If even one of your customers is a church, you're making a mistake. It's a slap in their face and will cost you other potential clients from word of mouth. In today's economy every customer is valuable.

    To answer ..CESO20... matter of fact I'm not as offended by the multi color flag in front of a business.. but thinks when displayed they are just geared to this crowd.. which is fine, myself I'd be less likely to go in. and don't feel sexual preferences etc should be displayed in public for kids to be viewing .. again this is a private matter

    But more offended by using Jesus or religion with advertising

    Now on your personal car/truck/bike or person fine just my 2 cents
