Photo Sails™ patented technologies and marketing sails programs create relationships between brands and consumers via novel branding vehicles capable of event marketing and public relations programs. These advertising vessels have the ability to represent a product, service, company or brand in multiple U.S. and international markets while supporting public relations programs such as VIP entertainment programs, employee reward plans, on-off premise promotions, sweepstakes and guerrilla marketing tactics.

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.
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.
Sea Seekers Sailing, Inc. begins advertising its own charter business by putting
company logo and contact information on the hull and sails of their charter
boats. This trial and error period leads to the development and invention of
Photo Sails™ in 2000.
