So when one of the best cigar shops in Tombstone, AZ calls because they want custom cigar bands made… you of course pay tribute to the old wild, wild west.
Smoke Signals has been a purveyor of fine tobacco products for over 25 years. Located on historic Allen Street, they provide premium smokes in the most famous town in the Old West, Tombstone, Arizona. Home of the OK Corral and the rowdy Birdcage Theatre.
In the spirit of the four most notorious names in Tombstone, we have captured the spirit of each with our own hand rolled and uniquely different signature cigars: Wyatt, Doc, Ringo, and Curly Bill.
Suzanne Wilson, owner of Smoke Signals Cigar, wanted us to design unique cigar bands that captured the Outlaw and LawDog spirit. Our challenge was to create something original and true to the Old Wild West times. We drew inspiration from the cigar shop itself and used decorative elements from the store front sinage.
The custom cigar bands have given Smoke Signals Cigar a great marketing and branding tool. Not only have sales of their house blend increased, but regulars and visitors alike truly feel like they take a piece of the Old Wild West, every time they buy one of Suzanne’s cigars.
