BURMA-SHAVE ADVERTISING SUCCESS The use of the billboards was a highly successful advertising gimmick, drawing attention to passers-by who were curious to discover the punch line. Within a decade, Burma-Shave was the second most popular brand of shaving cream in the United States. The first sets of slogans were written by the owners. However, they soon started an annual contest for people to submit the rhymes. With winners receiving a $100 prize, some contests received over 50,000 entries.

At their height of popularity there were 7,000 Burma-Shave signs stretching across America. They became such an icon to these early day travelers that families eagerly anticipated seeing the rhyming signs along the roadway, with someone in the car excitedly proclaiming, “I see Burma-Shave signs!” Breaking up the monotony of long trips, someone once said, “No one could read just one.”

Burma-Shave sales rose to about 6 million by 1947, at which time sales stagnated for the next seven years, and then gradually began to fall. Various reasons caused sales to fall, the primary one being urban growth. Typically, Burma-Shave signs were posted on rural highways and higher speed limits caused the signs to be ignored.

Deborah @ 575-758-4897 verses were a silly idea and one of America’s vintage icons was lost to progress. By 1966, every last sign disappeared from America’s highways. A very few ended up in museums, including a couple of sets that were donated to the Smithsonian Institution.

Go to Taos and drive around and you will typically see quite a few! Hardy ever will you see less than two. The record number that have been seen is thirteen by this Hmmm’er.
