Did you enjoy this screensaver? Do you want to have your own business screensaver offered to the entire aviation community? Read on and discover why you should have YOUR OWN BRANDED SCREENSAVER and how to proceed further.

Your screensaver could be your most effective promotional tool!
Screensavers are one of the most downloaded software applications. In addition to this, a screensaver can act as an advertising tool itself: when it shows on the user’s computer, your logo and promotional message shows up. Skycontrol’s professional screensavers may contain images, animations and interactive content. Your own branded screensaver is a logo-identified promotional application, just like a coffee mug, pen, t-shirt… but unlike all these other promotional items, your screensaver is an electronic item for an electronic world.


Every time your screensaver will start running,
your name, logo, pictures, website will appear on every image…
Optimal design and integration of your company info guaranteed!


Order your own branded screensaver?
We can create your custom screensaver with your own images, logo, etc. We take care to include your company information: visibility and graphic design are our keywords. Your screensaver will be designed to be given away as a free gift from your website, delivered as an instant download.  It will be provided as a small .exe file you can upload on your server, brand on a CD or email to your customers, family and friends.

You don’t have your own server? No problem, we can host your screensaver without any additional cost.

Once installed, your screensaver will reside permanently on the user’s computer. Everytime the user will come back from a break he will have awareness of your name and brand. In addition, and most importantly, your screensaver can have hotlinks directly to your website!
