iPrint and 1-800-Dentist
Classic 90s Commercials
If you're a certain age, you probably remember classic commercials like iPrint.com and 1-800-Dentist. These commercials were ubiquitous on TV in the 1990s and early 2000s, and they're still remembered fondly by many people today.
The iPrint.com commercial was a simple but effective one. It featured a man sitting at his computer, printing out a document. The voiceover said, "iPrint.com: Your one-stop shop for all your printing needs." The commercial was catchy and memorable, and it helped to make iPrint.com a household name.
Suzie Barrett was the 1-800 Dentist girl. She was the one who tried to convince you to call 1-800-Dentist and not use the Yellow Pages. Simple but effective advertising.
Interesting note: The commercial was done in one cut. There is no camera switching in this commercial.
