While serious companies rarely rely on tear-off advertising, it must be one of the most often used and widely spread advertisement types among common people since the invention of telephone. It’s practical and easy to make – usually, it’s just a plain white paper with tear offs containing contact information. Probably you’ve seen them already, haven’t you?

However, today we want to show that even the most boring communication medium like tear-off advertisement can be used in such a creative way that those ads  can end up on thousands of websites around the world and reach much bigger audience than initially expected.

Because we wanted to make this collection really good, we’ve picked only 11 best tear-off ads. So have fun, and don’t forget to tell us which one is your favorite one and why!
