Let’s face it, in today’s world, the minute you leave the house it’s impossible not to be bombarded by flyers, billboards, and ads telling you how you should spend your hard earned money. Most of the time, you ignore the obnoxious sales pitches and try to focus on living your life. But sometimes, particularly funny signs actually manage to catch your attention.
Not every company has the skill, wit, and humor to create great ads that actually make you want to stop and stare. What it comes to getting it right, there’s one leader in the field: Trader Joe’s. The growing grocery store giant has found ways to sell their products with a sense of humor and light-heartedness that’s often lacking at the Safeways and Ralphs of the world. Here we decided to honor their efforts by pulling together a collection of some of our favorite funny Trader Joe’s signs from over the years.
Not only do the brilliant folks behind the signage of Trader Joe’s keep the fun coming with tons of puns, cartoon-like characters, and pop culture shout-outs, but their signs often feature some pretty beautiful artwork too.
As you’ll see below, we’ve kicked things off with a few of the best Trader Joe’s signs in history, but the fun doesn’t stop there!You also have the ability to add to this list of good Trader Joe’s signs, so that the next time you’re roaming the aisles and come across a hilarious bit of grocery story advertising, you’ll have a place to share it with the world.
