What is their longevity?

As with any sail, and virtually anything, the more carefully you treat them, the greater their longevity. Innovators in new print technologies, ImageSails employs a Patent Pending Worldwide system to ensure the highest resolution and longest lasting qualities available. Though nothing will outlast the power of the sun, years of research and development, headed by Daniel Gohstand’s wealth of knowledge in printing techniques from his photographic background, has yielded the highest-resolution, most vibrant, UV-and-salt water-resistant, durable prints yet known at sea. ImageSails’ longevity make them extraordinarily cost-effective with time, far outlasting most other means, and allowing advertisers to fly their branding for years for the price of a brief stint as a billboard, or other fleeting means. There are precious few other methods which may be employed so well, for so long, for a single purchase price.

Can you print on my used sail? It looks like heck!

ImageSails’ proprietary system is employed during the custom construction of a new sail only. Used sails are better the realm of inferior techniques that compromise the sail’s weight and performance (e.g. laminates, sandwiches), laid virtually obsolete by ImageSails. We strongly encourage clients to take full advantage of a beautiful, fresh start, employing the finest art and technology available.

I’ve heard ImageSails may be written off on my taxes if used for business purposes and/or advertising or promotion. Is this true?

Though this is beyond the scope of our expertise, we encourage you to consult with your tax professional regarding possible benefits.
