Thanks to everybody for your help. Unfortunately, I have not been given any context at all for this phrase, except that it's a type advertising. All your answers were very useful and I had to choose the first as the most helpful one.

innovative floor stickers or bottom stickers


Explanation:
It occurs to me that the stickers might not go on the floor, but rather on the bottom of something, e.g. some sort of a container.
There must be some more context on the basis of which you can determine whether the stickers go on the floor (e.g., footprints leading to a special sale table in a retail establishment) or whether they go on the bottom of a container of some sort or another.

floor adhesive


Explanation:
it all depends on the greater context,
whether you are talking about stickers
on the floor or a particular kind of
floor adhesive (or floor which has a
gummed/self-adhesive underneath).

Explanation:
sticker, label, floor sign, floor placard

Bodenaufkleber appears to be a relatively uncommon (AltaVista: 2 hits; Northernlight: 4 hits) “ad hoc” term used whichever way it may fit, e.g. to denote a sticker or label on the bottom of an item (first sample below), where the “Boden...” part is quite immaterial, or for a (self-adhesive) label, sign or plackard affixed to the floor (as in the second sample below) where the Boden… part is quite essential.

>>Besonders Begehrenswert waren kleine Schmalzfleischbüchsen, von denen wir dachten, daß die aus Westdeutschland stammtem, weil mal auf einer Serie ein Bodenaufkleber befestigt war mit
der Aufschrift "Made in Germany", Osnabrück. Aber dies war sicher nur eine DDR-Exportsendung, welche sich zu uns verirrt hatte. <<

>>ZUSÄTZLICHES WERBEMATERIAL -- Um das Sony Informationscenter optimal am Point of Sale zu plazieren, wurden parallel Werbematerialien eingesetzt: Schaufensteraufkleber, Kissenleichtplakate mit Hinweis auf das POI-System, Deckenhänger und Bodenaufkleber mit Pfeilen, die den Kunden zum POS-System führen und kleine Aufsteller (6 x 6 cm), die am System stehen. Zusätzlich gibt es noch den Gesamtkatalog, der als Verkaufsunterstützung vor dem Einsatz des POS-Systems fungiert.<<

It’s in your own best interest –- and that of your would-be helpers-- to provide (much!) more context. YOU get better answers. WE save time, can be more helpful, and enjoy doing it even more. :)
