The Footprintless® Easel Takes No Stand

Standard Display and Presentation Easels Don’t Stand a Chance.

Don’t you just hate it when you’re trying to make a presentation and instead of your easel working as your partner, it becomes the center of attention? You need your presentation to be about the “what”, not the “how”.

You know what I mean, right? The clumsiness of the easel.

Standard office easels are typically tripod-shaped with three legs that use up a large chunk of floor space. Now add a meeting table, chairs, attendees, presenter – space is at a premium. This makes the easel legs easily tripped over. Moving from one side of the easel to the other requires your focus to be momentarily redirected from your presentation. That’s not good.

Often where a writing pad rests is also triangular-shaped. This allows for accidentally displacing the work surface or pad when applying pressure to one of the upper two corners.

Talk about awkward times two.

Then, have you ever watched a tall team member approach an easel pad to add a thought or comment? It is so difficult to write on a vertical surface below your waist!

Another downside to standard office easels is that they also require extra space when not in use. Many conference rooms and office spaces don’t have extra storage to easily accommodate an additional piece of “furniture” or equipment. So easels are frequently “left out”. This easily avails them to being “borrowed” and not available when needed.

Then there are those times when an easel is used to display a concept board, or what have you, on a light foam core panel, for example. There it precariously sits on that small ledge until a meeting member walks by. The air current created from their movement causes the presentation material to fly like a kite – until gravity takes hold.

These, and other factors, make for awkward functionality and the use of common easels less than ideal.

So you need a solution!

The Footprintless® Easel is without legs to stand on!

The AS Hanging Display Systems Footprintless® Easel is the perfect easel for conference rooms and individual offices.

  • It is compatible with display boards, easel pads and individual sheet paper.

The Footprintless Easel is compatible with common easel pads with pre-drilled holes. However, the supplied hardware that holds the easel pad is infinitely adjustable. Result: this pad is easy to write on if you are a 6’4” line coach for the Carolina Panthers, or you are 4’ 9” “Hetty” of “NCIS: Los Angeles” (Linda Hunt).

For roughly the same price range as an average easel, the Footprintless Easel is available in 3′ and 6′ wide sizes, with either black or silver finished tracks.

Hardware is pre-assembled. Simply install the upper and lower tracks with the supplied hardware and insert the pre-assembled hardware assortment. Custom configurations are also available.

This easel is wall mounted and so is always waiting for you. With all this practical functionality, it’s easy to see why the Footprintless Easel just may be the best easel in the industry – even without a leg to stand on.

Next time you give a presentation, make your message command attention. Not your “how” with the ill-fated easel.
