Advertising on steps

Shapeshifter Media introduces Stair Graphics, enabling an innovative large format on an almost unused and widely available advertising location - staircases.

Advertising on staircases was previously uncommon, and only possible in the form of single step ads. With the use of our patented procedure, Stair Graphics now enable us to reproduce a larger-than-life 3D image across several steps and landings. The 2D or 3D image with Stair Graphics appears seamless, upright and can also feature additional three-dimensional effects.

Striking visual impact

Shapeshifter Media Stair Graphics transform a staircase into an exclusive advertising vehicle. Using our patented process, every design for StairGraphics on staircases is automatically adapted to suit the surface of any staircase.

On public, highly frequented staircases, as eye-catchers at trade fairs and events or as a TV-relevant advertising medium at sports matches and entertainment shows - advertising on steps with Shapeshifter Media StairGraphics allows you to exploit previously unused spaces, opening up entirely new possibilities for advertising communication.

How does it work ?

The specially developed software Stair Calculator uses the geometric details of a staircase to calculate the parts of the advertising layout to be reproduced for Stair Graphics, in minimum time. These modified parts are printed on high-quality materials and attached to the front surfaces of every step. StairGraphics appear as an impressive total 2D or 3D advertising design for every observer.

Shapeshifter Media Stair Graphics are the only advertising format for staircases & steps, that will save your advertising message from taking on a jagged "step-effect".

Stair Graphics require absolutely no additional aids such as frame systems or electrical supplies. StairGraphics can be removed without leaving the slightest trace at any time.

The "method for representing an image on a stepped surface or staircase" is internationally patented. Shapeshifter Media is the exclusive licensee for seamless StairGraphics.
