3) Receipt Advertising –
All along this has been in use subtlely. Most of our supermarkets are still using this, and it has recently extended to "Pay Machines" like AXS and SAM…etc.

4) Paper Cup Advertising –
Some vending companies used to make big bucks from this form of advertising. Hope to see this returns too.
