    Kodak marketing Slogans

    I was hoping I could use this thread to start a list of Kodak marketing slogans
    and the dates they were used. From george Eastmans "You press the button , We do the rest" to todays " "great photos start with great film, choose Kodak"

    What slogans have you heard from them, what country was it used in and when was it used?

    How about "Kodak: you shoot the pictures, we shoot ourselves in the foot"?

    Not a real slogan but a very real scenario...

    Canada (at least) - 1970s, particularly around Christmas: "Open Me First"

    At the moment, all I can think of is "Grab your ankles".

    2 for 4 on the maturity scale :rolleyes: What is the problem?

    "You press the button , We do the rest" is my favorite.
    Those who know, shoot film

    "A Kodak moment."

    BTW: the "Open me first" was probably the most inspired for those of us "of a certain age".

    I can still visualize the scene under the Xmas tree of the gold foil wrapped box with red ribbon and the gift card saying: "Open Me First" - with the OOF of a red bicycle, a doll etc. in the background.

    And the next shot of Dad taking the pics with that new Instamatic of the kids opening those presents.

    Ok I'm worried Kodaks slogans but not have an impact on us as the consuming masses. If we cant remember them then there is obviously something wrong with kodaks marketing?

    How about a Fuji slogan then: "from the people who brought you Pearl Harbor!"

    That had to be taken off the market in the US. It outraged the people here.

    Was "Share Moments, Share Life" a Kodak slogan? I think so, but it may have been someone else.

    On another note, I'd really like to see a scan of that Fuji ad! I tried a Google image search but couldn't come up with anything.
