What if thousands of people had an unobstructed view of your brand images along any waterfront or beach? Why not use a sailboat? To see the highest quality images ever printed on sailboat sails, look no further than Photo Sails. 

Patented in 2003 (US Patent # 6,886,483) with additional international patents, Photo Sails provides high-resolution images in places that advertising never existed before, on sailboat sails! Being the only advertisement on the horizon of a seashore is unforgettable and effective advertising.


A Smart Media Buy

Photo Sails are photo-realistic images printed on sails and marine-related equipment. Marketers use them to target onlookers at nearshore events.  They offer the most extensive mobile signage in any waterside marketplace. The high-quality impressions create a smart media buy and unique OOH branding.

Crocs Footwear began utilizing Photo Sails during their second year of production. They printed their logos and images on sails at boat shows and waterside markets along the entire east coast. This unregulated and highly visible mobile medium fit their client base perfectly. Crocs used the floating platform to sell their footwear while creating the most massive signage everywhere they went. It was and still is, a home run media buy that the best event marketing companies use to create a buzz.


National And International Exposure With No Permits Required

Photo Sails are available both nationally and internationally. Photo Sails establishes local marinas as “Port Towns” anywhere there are navigable waterways.

A set of Photo Sails can be shipped from market to market where they can be rigged to identical vessels. Swapping sails minimizes production fees while maximizing media exposure and ROI.

The beauty of this non-traditional OOH medium is that it’s unregulated.  The sails are a functioning propulsive part of any vessel, so no permits are necessary.


Turnkey Branding Packages

Photo Sails are durable and last for years, which the company guarantees for the length of any contract. They also offer turn-key branding packages that include sails, vessel, captain, dockage, insurance, maintenance, catering, and even the fuel for the ship. Charter Barter packages can take dozens if not thousands of VIPs and guests sailing at no charge.

Photo Sails include everything necessary to carry out a successful ad campaign. Your company gets exposure to thousands of targeted attendees at hundreds of events, including air shows, beach concerts, sporting events, and much more. Your brand will be floating along hundreds of miles of highly visible beaches, bridges and coastal highways.


More Than Just Sails
