Photo Sails

Dear Aaron,

Jackie and I would like to thank you for the GREAT opportunity to fly your custom sails on the JAG Resort II.  Though we were concerned at first about allowing a stranger to have full control of our boat for two months, it could not have turned out better. Your selection of Captain Rick Silverman helped our anxiety fade away. He and his wife Karen are both knowledgeable and respectful of other's property. They took good care of our boat and treated it as if it were their own.  They remained flexible with us joining them on the boat for the days we were able to fit into our schedule.

We were equally impressed with the quality of your sails and your operation. We received numerous compliments.  You can rest assured that the folks on the Santa Monica bay beaches and Huntington beach saw your high quality sails!
Please know that if another, similar opportunity were to be available in the future, we would be open to teaming with you and Photo Sails again.

Thank you for the memorable experience!

If we can ever provide a reference for Photo Sails, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We wish you and Photo Sails much success!!!

Owners of the JAG RESORT II

Sea Seekers Sailing Inc. / PHOTO SAILS

Mr. Kiss,

I am writing on behalf of the Crocs™ crew to report on our phenomenal response to our Photo Sails. Both the press and Crocs™ fans alike are drawn to the uniqueness and the quality of the sails you have made for Hannibal. The Jamestown Journal wrote a story about our brand’s success and featured a picture of Hannibal under sail. The image is striking and our statement is clear. The Photo Sails are floating billboards that demand and deserve the attention of thousands.

Our sails have started numerous conversations with curious boaters who are intrigued with your work and curious about Crocs™. We have also had numerous boaters and loyal Crocs™ fans sail out of their way towards Hannibal, stick out their legs, and proudly display their Crocs™.

Your sails continue to be our single and most powerful billboard that speaks to the boating community. It is a great PR tool when we invite guests to stay on Hannibal and enjoy an escape to the sea. We anticipate future ports of call bringing us multiple media exposures that further aid us in our branding and marketing efforts. You just can’t buy the kind of exposure that your sails have spawned!

It has also been interesting to experience the sails at work over the past three months. The custom adjustments that were made for us have performed perfectly for our captains, “Oli” and Tim.

We are the most popular boat anywhere we go. As you know, we run the gamut of shows up and down the east coast every year. Because of this, purchasing Photo Sails seemed like an investment that would pay itself off time and over again. This technology allows us to not only have the hottest billboard on the horizon, but one that displays the hottest shoe on the market- Crocs™!

Crocs™ shoes allow people to sail in style. Your Photo Sails allow Hannibal to float in style as well. We look forward to many years of successful marketing with your innovative product.

We’ll see you in Miami next year.

Sincerely,

Scott Seamans
Director of Research and Development: Crocs™ Footwear

Dear Aaron,

Thank you for your time. I am happy to report that after five months of flying our new Photo Sails we have experienced amazing results. Our charter booking and profits have soared. The results have been especially encouraging since we were able to achieve immediate results despite the fact that we launched the campaign in our off season. We can’t wait for tourist season to start.

In addition we have seen many indirect results such as “free” publicity in local television spots and even in video shoots of Fort Lauderdale. Our customers are impressed by the novelty of the image we picked and the sponsorship offers we are getting have prompt us to purchase a second and possibly a third 50 foot 49 passenger charter cat. Your Photo Sails have enabled us to enhance our brand recognition and differentiate us form the competition. Every time we raise our sails and cruise the beach, we are booking cruises and charters. This is the most successful advertising campaign we have ever had, and it’s free. Your product has been and will continue to be a success for us and anyone who decides to utilize this novel marketing and advertising medium. We look forward to placing our next order in time for season.

Sincerely,

Ziv David Halevy
President

Your answer to fun in the sun!
 

4.) Surprise Charters (La Salle Bank)

June 19, 2007
To whom it may Concern:

Surprise Charters is a Chicago-based charter operation featuring Chicago’s largest sailing catamaran. In 2005 we were contracted by Outdoor Media Group to sail an ad for their client, LaSalle Bank.

The art department at BBD&O worked with Photosails who transferred their design to a 60’ tall sail for our catamaran.  We sailed their ad for 2 weeks in downtown Chicago on Lake Michigan in 2005.

LaSalle contracted us again in 2006 through Outdoor Media Group to sail the LaSalle Bank ad for just under two months in summer 2006.

We recommend Photosails highly. Their bold graphics stand out along the Chicago waterfront and were seen by hundreds of thousands of people during the summer season.

Yours truly,

Michele Durkin
President

FEATURES

Written by Saturday, 05 October 2013 13:26

 

Photo Sails create the most visually hypnotic sails in history and through the invention of our 21st century sailcloth, features new technologies that are improving the overall functionality of sailboat sails. The first enemy of traditional sailcloth is the Sun. UV rays deteriorate everything but Photo Sails are coated with a liquid laminate derived from the same chemical consistency of clear coat utilized on most automobiles yet wont peel off and will lasts for years. This laminate is a pure UV inhibitor that gives us the confidence to offer a two year UV fading warranty. The second enemy of sails is salt crystals. Every strand weaved into a sail comes in contact with perpendicular strands ten, hundreds or thousands of times. At every intersection of the warp and fill, salt crystals contaminate and entangle themselves in the depth of the fabric. These salt crystals are abrasive on a molecular scale and slowly destroy the cloth from the inside out. For instance, a new sail is stiff and feels like card stock paper and a year or two later the cloth is as loose and flowing as a bed sheet. The scrim which supplies the strength to Photo Sails is encapsulated between the other layers completely protecting it from the salt and sun. Mold during storage is also an issue for sails because the mold makes its way deep into the fibers where it can't be scrubbed out. The surface of Photo Sails is smooth and non porous so mold has nothing to cling to. If mold does grow due to bad storage quality it can be wiped off with a sponge and mild soap or diluted ammonia. (We suggest diluted Simple Green. Finally, Photo Sails offer the ultimate in imaging quality. Instead of logos stuck on with stickers and sail tape the images are colorful and unique ensuring an attention grabbing quality that sticks out from other branding vehicles.

BACKGROUND
Like all great ideas, the invention of Photo Sails™ was born from necessity. Advertising day-sail charters to tourists 100 yards off the beach in Fort Lauderdale Florida proved financially successful and Photo Sails adapted business to market this novel advertising medium. Through use of existing state-of-the-art computer-imaging technologies in combination with patented, revolutionary cloth manufacturing techniques, Photo Sails™ were invented. These imaged sails are durable and create hypnotic branding vehicles offering consolidation of a new marketing medium and public relation programs for marketers seeking non-traditional advertising mediums. Photo Sails holds two U.S. patents, a New Zealand patent, a South African Patent and has patents pending in the European Union and Australia. This intellectual property protection provides Photo Sails with the unique ability to offer a product exclusivity options, preserving the uniqueness of our product nationally and/or internationally.

OBJECTIVES
The objective is for Photo Sails, owned by Sea Seekers Sailing Inc., to align sponsor seeking sailing events with outdoor advertisers. Photo Sails place ads on sails creating sailing billboards in high profile environments helping products to gain exposure through utilizing untapped markets as an additional medium for signage and branding vehicle options. Our multiple programs are available worldwide.
