I ran across an ancient metal can of Porter Paints mineral spirits, and realized they haven’t changed their look ever. In today’s climate of corporate branding and re-branding, that’s quite a rare achievement.
Their stores still retain the distinctive yellow and orange stripes. So bright, so obvious, so steadfast to the old fashioned way of physical advertising.

The Porter facades are easily adaptable to any type of commercial building, which makes for interesting variations on the theme.
I can’t find any information on them, so I don’t know the answer to these questions:
Are new franchises required to sport the facade? How do they order the facade, and how many styles to choose from? Can I order one to spruce up my garage?
