What are Promotional Flag Banners? Promotional flags are generally designed to promote products, brands, events, exhibitions, and show stands, but their use is unlimited as naturally moving signage or point of sale. Flags can be any shape or size, but 3 types are commonly used – Bowhead Flag, Feather, and Teardrop.
What are the Bowhead or Sail Flags? A promotional banner shaped flag, with a curved top and bottom, creating a sail effect. Flags tend to be square or scooped at the bottom, according to aesthetic finish required.
What are Feather Flags or Banner Flags? Promotional Teardrop Flags shaped like a feather with square edges top and bottom or feather-shaped (almost identical to a Sailflag) with a straight bottom.
What are Teardrop Flags? – Promotional flags shaped like a tear with a large rounded top and angled edge to the bottom of the flag.
What is the difference between each flag? Sailflags and Feather Flags will generally move naturally in a breeze or wind. Teardrop flags are static (although poles will rotate if secured within a rotational arm system which is included with all orders) Each flag shape provides a different size canvas for a variety of design needs.
What is the best shape to use? There is no right or wrong shape to use, some logos and/or graphic illustrations often favour one design over another. It’s always worthwhile discussing these with your graphic designer and printer during the pre-production process. It is also worth considering whether you need the flag material to move or whether a static point of sale is sufficient for your needs.
Why are promotional flags so popular? Promotional flags offer cost-effective signage in full-colour digital print. Sail flags and Feather Flags also offer natural movement, attracting the eye and creating a moving point of sale display.
