Custom Coffee Cup Sleeves

The average US-consumer is exposed to approximately 3,000 advertising messages in only one day (1). Facing this permanent flooding of attempts of persuasion, many people feel constricted in their freedom to make independent consumption decisions. By confronting consumers repeatedly with the same type of traditional advertisements they become familiar with these measures which cause a wearout effect. For that reason, particularly classical types of advertising lose their power to attract consumers’ attention

To win the competition for attention, many marketers promote their products more aggressively by using more and more advertising activities (2).
