Traditional & Digital Skywriting Services

Take your messaging higher

It doesn’t get more impressive than your company’s name or logo written across the sky. That’s why Skywriting is so effective. From back down on the ground, anyone within a huge radius will find it impossible to miss.

Up, up and awesome idea

Skywriting is an aviation technique created by vaporizing specially treated and environmentally approved oil in the plane’s exhaust system to form letters in the sky. There are two different types of writing in the sky – Traditional and Digital Skywriting (Skytyping). Traditional is executed with one aircraft performing aerobatic maneuvers while releasing white peanut oil eco-friendly smoke to create five to six characters in hand-written style or a logo. Skytyping is executed with multiple aircraft flying in formation while releasing the oil, but in a dot matrix style. Your message is loaded into the computer and signals trigger the smoke to be released. Every five seconds, new letters or logos are finished. This method allows for up to 25 characters to be written in a typewritten style across the sky and lasts longer than traditional Skywriting.

Lasting impressions

In the right weather conditions, both Traditional skywriting and Skytyping are visible for up to an hour. If it’s windy the messaging will fade much faster, but both methods are effective at keeping all eyes on the skies.

Be seen above everyone else

Writing an advertising message in the sky is often created to appear over populated areas at certain times to achieve the most reach. Concerts, events, racetracks and beaches for example, are all places that would enjoy relevant messaging with some added ‘wow’ factor thrown in.

Big effect

The airplanes form the words at heights of 10,000 ft. (3048m) above ground. At this altitude the skywriting can be seen 30km (19 miles) to 122km (76 miles) in any direction, with each letter measuring around 500 ft. high. On a clear day your entire message can highlight the sky for up to 20 minutes. Is it any wonder digital and dot matrix skywriting is unmissable?

See your results soar with Traditional or Digital Skywriting (Skytyping).

    In Light of Recent News

    We can confirm the Digital Ad Truck seen spreading hateful and Islamophobic message in Toronto on June 18, 2024 is not one of ours, nor are we related in any kind with the campaign.

    Every creative or artwork submitted to us is seen by us and not automatically forwarded to Digital Truck technicians, or uploaded or shared with partner vendors. We follow company’s ethics of responsible and productive messaging only.

    We commit to our two decades old best practices:

    • We will not run any messaging that we know or even suspect that promotes hate of any kind
    • We will also not knowingly run ads with symbols, flags, etc. that represents hate
    • We will not run any ads that contain disturbing visual content or immodest nudity
    • We see each ad material and are able to use discretion to run the ad, ask client to change their creative or cancel the agreement and offer a full refund. In the rare case where questionable content slips through, we will immediately pull the ad.
    • As we work with many trusted agency partners, though we don’t question the ad integrity when booking the ad but we do see each and every creative before it gets produced and printed even in quick turnarounds.
