Print Advertising

Train of Thought has focused on effective print and online advertising since our founding in 1992. Our advertising services are focused exclusively on creating connections between you and your customers with print and web mediums. Since brand positioning and development are also part of our core services, we form particularly unusual connections that make people think, feel, learn and take action.

We don’t work in perception because perception can change with the wind. We create ideas that change people’s reality. Our advertising campaigns work when our clients embrace the scary, the twisted, the tender, the mind-bending, the offbeat humor, the truth told in a compelling story—the stuff that gets them noticed and remembered.

Whether your goal is to create a heartfelt connection, instill a realistic need, or make people laugh so hard their colorful energy drink spurts out their nose, we can set the strategy and conjure the creative to make it happen.

Online Advertising

We combine pay-per-click advertising network campaigns with strategic banner campaigns to give your ad messaging maximum exposure. Your ads will reach a premium audience and connect with interested people ready to move.


We do whatever it takes to create advertising and direct mail campaigns that connect. We do it with real stories about you. And for the record, we don’t do spin—we craft meaningful stories that connect.
