The Duct Tape Guys create a great special event draw for your bookstore!
Jim and Tim bring their patented brand of bizarre Duct Tape Standup Comedy right into your store (or your mall) and along with it, tons of happy consumers ready to plop down cash for their best-selling humor books.

The Duct Tape Guys’ in-store signings have gathered crowds of over 150 book-buying consumers. Events planned in conjunction with shopping malls draw even larger crowds and post-shop bookstore traffic.

Media Savvy
The guys are great with the media (radio and television) that brings priceless advertising to your event (and has moved over one million Duct Tape Books and Calendars off store shelves). When booked into your store (or mall) the guys will aggressively pursue media in your town. They both entertain the listening or viewing audience while marketing your event. (Most attendees at bookstore signings attend because they’ve heard the guys on the radio or seen them on television.) Click here for our demo video.

Ideas for events:

In a mall? Work with the mall to set up a stage and chairs in the mall commons in proximity to your store. The Duct Tape Guys will perform and direct people to your store for the post-show signing.

Or, join forces with a fashion store and hold a Duct Tape Fashion Show. Attendees come dressed in Duct Tape creations and the Duct Tape Guys will emcee the event.

Freestanding store? Put up a tent (as weather permits) in the parking lot and have a Duct Tape Comedy Event (or Duct Tape Evangelism Tent Meeting if you prefer). Get a local radio station to cosponsor the event.

To book the guys for your event, call Kate Tyler at Workman Publishing (800-722-7202).

Above and Beyond Marketing Efforts We have been amazed at the lengths some stores have gone to market our books. From duct taped arrows on the floor to the table or endcap displaying the books, to duct tape ties and vests on the clerks. On the right you can see that customers in the Barnes and Noble in Roseville, MN, didn't let customers out of their store without noticing The Jumbo Duct Tape Book.
