Painted Display

Painted Display

Any place (usually in a high traffic area) on which a person or company can place an advertisement in exchange for a fee. A painted display is a common form of advertising for products likely to appeal to drivers or pedestrians, or to increase the visibility of companies in the display's immediate vicinity. There are two types of painted displays: a billboard (which is a freestanding structure) and a painted wall (which is an exterior wall of a building).
