  • feather-flags-boost-visibilityIf you are investing in a custom marketing product, you need to know that the custom product is working. Custom feather flags are an affordable marketing tool, but you may wonder if they are effective. Here is a closer look at these flags, how you can use them, and how to boost your visibility more effectively with feather flags.

    What Are Feather Flags?

    Feather flags are narrow, tall flags that businesses place around trade show booths, events, and properties to draw attention quickly to something they wish to advertise. They can also be known as feather banners. Feather flags hold minimal text and imaging, but move with the wind to grab attention of passers by either indoor or outdoor. They are also known as flutter flags, sail flags, razor flags, and wind flags. Each feather banner is attached to a pole and can be several feet high in varied heights for an impressive overall look. Each pole has a number of base options to firmly plant the feather flag to the ground. FLS Banners offers ground stakes, x-bases, water bases, and more. When used effectively, feather banners can be very helpful marketing tools.

    How to Use Feather Flags to Maximize Visibility

    Feather flags can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments, but to make them as effective as possible, you need to select the right size, style, and accessories for your specific needs. FLS Banners offers a number of base options that are compatible with all poles used for feather banners.

    Banner Flag Location

    First, choose your location carefully. You want to put your flag in a place where many people will be walking or driving past it. This may be at the opening of our booth or your business. It may be along a major road. The location will depend on where your business is located and what your goal is, but make sure it’s visible.

    You can also place flags near items you want to draw attention to, such as an item that is on sale or a part of your business facility where you want to draw extra attention, like a sale area of your store or an event registration desk. Feather flags will grab attention, so place them where it is needed.

    One of the benefits of custom feather flags is the fact that they are easy to move. If your needs change, simply move your flag to a new location to draw attention to the right item.

    Banner Flag Design

    Next, design your feather or banner flag carefully. The design of your banner can increase its effectiveness significantly. First, choose colors in line with your business's branding. If you have a signature color scheme, that must be used. Second, use an image or logo that is in line with your branding goals and what you are trying to draw attention to. Finally, make sure that the layout works with the size of the flag. Remember, these are fairly small, so long phrases may not fit well upon printing. If you place words on your feathered flag, make them short and to the point.

    In general, as you design your flags, remember that less is more. The goal is to grab attention, not create a dialogue about your item.

    There are many styles or shapes of feather flags available. These designs can include standout convex, concave, and square bottom or swooper and teardrop shapes. The ability to create a custom flag extends to the shape, color, and graphic printing on each one. Be sure to take note that each flag size and shape may require a specific pole.

    Banner Flag Text

    When choosing the text, make user it is big enough. In general, for every inch of height on your lettering, the text can be read from 10 feet away. So, lettering that is 2 inches tall can be read up to 20 feet away. Consider how far away people will stand, and choose lettering that is tall enough to be read easily.

    For font color, make sure it contrasts well with the background color it is placed against. Blue and red against yellow, for example, can work well, while white against yellow does not work as well and is low contrast. If you are having trouble with colors, consider outlining the text in black so it stands out.

    Finally, choose a font that is easy to read. Script fonts are not a good option for feather or swooper flags, because they are hard to read quickly. Instead, use a simple print that someone can read while quickly walking or driving past your sign.

  • fls banners feather flagsFeather flags are the perfect banner to draw attention to your trade show booth or outdoor event space. FLS Banners produces the most durable feather flag on the market. Each flag is made with a heavy knit fabric pocket so that you can use it over and over for years to come.

    At FLS banners, we have several sizes and shapes of custom feather flags for your consideration. These durable, weather-resistant banners are perfect for both indoor or outdoor booth. As you shop, consider these sizes and shapes.

    About Feather Flag Sizes

    At FLS Banners, one way we help you find the feather flags you need for your particular application is by offering different sizes of feather flags. Whether you are looking for a feather banner that towers over event attendees to gain traction to your booth, or something a little less overstated that will gather people to your space, without being too large, we have a flag size to fit. The three flag sizes we offer are:

    1. Small Feather Flag – Our small flags are eight feet tall, which means they are just a little bit taller than event attendees. These work great for indoor trade shows where you may have ceiling height limitations, but you still want your booth to stand out.
    2. Medium Feather Flag – Our medium flags are 12 feet tall, which makes a definite statement. These stand about double the height of event attendees, so they will grab attention. They can be used indoors as long as the ceiling height is not an issue, and also work well for outdoor applications.
    3. Large Feather Flag – Our large flags are 16 feet tall. Because of their height, these are best for outdoor applications. You can see these featured flags lining concert venues, attracting attention for sidewalk sales, and used in outdoor festival environments.

    About Feather Flag Shapes

    Not only do feather flags come in different sizes, but they also come in different shapes. Shapes will help you create the look you want for your event or booth, but deciding which shape is best is not always an easy task. Here is a closer look at the different shapes we offer:

    1. Convex Feather Flag – Convex feather flag are rounded out at the bottom. This provides a greater surface area for your printed message with a pleasing finished look.
    2. Concave Feather Flag – Concave feather flags round inward at the bottom for a unique look. The slight inward curve allows more space underneath, which can be helpful if flags line a walkway.
    3. Square Feather Flag – Square feather flags have a square corner on the bottom.
    4. Swooper Feather Flag – A swooper is a feather flag that has a squared-off top and bottom for a trapezoidal shape.
    5. Teardrop Feather Flag – Teardrop feather flags resemble an upside-down drop of water, with a curved top and a bottom that angles in to a point. These have more space underneath, making them a good choice to line walkways.
    6. Teardrop XL Feather Flag – Just like the teardrop, only bigger, the teardrop XL gives you slightly more space for printing.

    Ultimately, the shape you choose will depend on your application and the look you want to create. All of our feather flags come with the same durable materials and fast, full-color printing, so they will serve you well.

    Feather Flag Accessories and Kits

    Finally, as you are shopping for custom feather flags, you will want the right accessories and kit to ensure you are able to mount and display your flags. Each kit contains the flag, custom pole, mounting hardware, and a base. The kit you need will depend on where you plan to use the flags. Some options we offer include:

    1. No Base – If you already have a base, pole, and the right mounting gear, consider going with no base at all.
    2. Flag + Ground Stake Kit – If you’re going to use your flags outdoors and plan to stake them in the ground, this is the kit you want.
    3. Flat + Heavy water Base Kit – Heavy water bases are filled with water to keep the flag in place. The weight of the water prevents tipping, and these bases are usable indoors or out.
    4. Flag + X-Base Kit – An x-base is an x-shaped piece of metal that provides stability for the flag. You may wish to place a weight on top of this when used outdoors, but it works quite well for standard indoor use.

    FLS Banners is proud to offer state-of-the-art dye-sublimation processing and custom printing for all of our products. Our custom feather flags are delivered to you with speed and quality. Use your own artwork through our easy online submission process and display your logo proudly on each custom feather flag.

  • small business trade show planningFor many small businesses, trade shows are a great way to get your name out there into the community and show people what you have to offer. Yet trade show costs can add up quickly, and you need to make sure you are doing everything to manage those costs efficiently for your business. As a small business, you must leverage the trade show circuit well in order to get a profit for the time and money you invest. Here are some tips to help today’s small business owners jump in to the trade show world with success.

    Budget and Plan Ahead

    It’s easy to overspend on trade shows, so a budget is the first step in the process. You do need to spend some money to make these shows successful. From the promotional products you hand out to the marketing materials on your display, not to mention the fees to rent the booth, there will be some money involved, but you need to determine how much is reasonable to spend before you start.

    Next, determine what your goals are. This will help you determine if your trade show has been successful. Goals may include:

    • Gaining new leads
    • Increasing brand recognition
    • Networking
    • Sales


    Make the exhibit goals measurable, so you can evaluate your success after the event.

    Decide where you will attend the trade show that is relevant to your industry. Choose a location that is likely to attract the partner or customer who will help you meet your goal. Since you will pay to be in the trade show, location is an important factor.
    Most importantly, plan ahead. Plan travel dates, book hotel rooms, and start planning the logistics of the show well ahead of time. This will ensure you have ample time to get all the details in place and give your staff time to prepare themselves as well.

    Start Marketing Now

    As soon as you know your location and dates, start marketing. Hit your social media pages with exciting posts about your upcoming event schedule. The more people in the local area that hear about the show, the better your attendance will be. Consider putting out incentives to invite people to visit your booth. Create a teaser video that will showcase some of the stuff you’ll have available.

    As part of your pre-show marketing, order your promotional items that both showcase your company's brand and leave a good first impression. You need to have some good stuff to give away in order to entice people to visit your booth. Choose items that will create a good impression of your business, but remember to keep your marketing budget in mind too.

    Build a Memorable Trade Show Booth

    Now it’s time to start planning for your exhibit booth. A successful trade show needs the right exhibit design to draw people in. This can be hard for first-time exhibitors who are not sure what will make people stop and take a closer look, but try to think like a visitor or attendee who is coming to the show. What would make you stop and look more closely at an exhibit space, rather than going to look at other exhibitors instead?

    First, you will need trade show tablecloths. Choose tablecloths branded with your logo or name. Then, consider banners that will draw attention. Finally, add the backdrops, displays, posters, and technology to your tables that will give people something to look at and read when they get to your booth.

    Depth is an important factor in exhibit design. You need several layers of display items that will draw people to your booth, then you need promotional items to encourage them to stay. Don’t neglect the height as well. With banners and backdrops, you can make your booth stand out by being taller than the competition.

    Videos and slideshows, as long as they are short, can also be effective at keeping people at your booth once they arrive. Use a bright, but not overpowering, color scheme. Consider adding a presentation board that showcases the benefit of your product or service. Use plenty of pictures throughout your booth design, because many people will not stop to read but will take in images. Above all, make sure your logo and company name are central to the overall design.

    If you are looking for help creating your trade show booth, you need the right supplier of trade show booth materials. FLS Banners offers high-quality, custom trade show booth materials at affordable prices with fast shipping. From banners to tablecloths, all of these items can be fully branded with your logo and design.

  • trade-show-eventWhether it’s your first trade show or your fiftieth, when a trade show is pending, every exhibitor needs to be properly prepared. While the packing process does get easier as you do more and more trade shows, it’s still helpful to have a handy trade show checklist on hand to tap into as you prepare. Here is a closer look at what you will need in preparation for an upcoming trade show and improve your marketing prowess.

    Essential Items for the Event

    As you prepare for the event itself, these are the items you will need to have on hand:

    • Business cards – You need more than you think. Everyone who walks by your booth will want to grab one, and you may misplace a box or two in the flurry of events. Running out means missed marketing opportunities with attendees.

    • Display items – It almost goes without saying, but make sure you have your booth items on hand, like your posters and banners, so you can set up your display. Don’t forget the electronics and TV screens you may need to attract attendees.

    • Trade Show Displays - These are absolutely essential to showcase your brand and get noticed!

    • Trade Show Tablecloths - Don't leave a bare table out on the show floor, tablecovers are a must for bringing your booth together.

    • Presentation media – Don’t forget the media you need to make your booth presentation effective!

    • Writing utensils – Pens and pencils tend to disappear, so have a large stash.

    • Stapler and staples – From handing out stacks of pamphlets to last minute repairs to something on your display, it’s always great to have one on hand.

    • Markers – Have plenty of permanent markers on hand that you can use for everything from removing typos to making a quick promotional poster.

    • Tape – Tape of all types is helpful to stick things to your booth display, make emergency repairs, or tape down wayward cords to avoid tripping hazards.

    • Trade show tablecloths – Have a variety of sizes of your trade show tablecloths so you can fit whatever size table you have to work with in your booth.

    • Extension cords – For lighting and electronics, you’ll need to be able to plug in, and the plug may not be close to you.

    • Scissors – When you need them, nothing else will do, so have a few pairs of scissors in your kit.

    • Miscellaneous office supplies – Pack sticky notes, paper clips, clipboards, and loose paper, so you have the supplies on hand when you need them.

    • Power strip – If you arrive and find that you only have one outlet available to you, a power strip will be invaluable.

    • Promotional items – T-shirts, stress balls, cups, pencils, clips, and any other branded item that you’re planning to give away needs to end up in your bins as you prepare for the trade show.

    • Bags – You will want trash bags, zip-top baggies, and shopping bags, preferably branded shopping bags, to complete your trade show supplies.


    Personal Comfort and Care

    Make sure you take care of your own needs, too. Here are some personal care and comfort items any exhibitor may wish to have on hand.

    • Water bottle – Trade shows are hot work. Even indoor trade shows require many hours on your feet talking to people. Bring plenty of water or an empty water bottle you can fill.

    • Snacks – You may not get a convenient lunch break, so have some healthy, protein-based snacks available.

    • Comfortable shoes – This is not the time to pull out the stilettos. Focus on comfort, because you’ll be on your feet most of the day.

    • Breath mints – Mints are better than gum, which makes you look unprofessional, but have something to take care of bad breath issues.

    • Sunscreen – For outdoor events, make sure you’re properly protected.


    Just in Case

    Emergencies happen. Make sure you are prepared for anything that can occur with these extra supplies.

    • First aid kit – Bandages, OTC medications, and disinfectant will help for any problems that arise during the trade show.

    • Safety pins – Don’t let a wardrobe malfunction get you down! You can also use safety pins to pin trade show tablecloths and banners that aren’t cooperating as you wish.

    • Zip ties – Are your wires and cords running every which way? Zip tie them in place!

    • Photos – Take pictures of your assembled booth. That way, you can look at pictures easily to see where each item belongs as you set up.

    • Extra tablecloths – When an event attendee spills their coffee all over your white tablecloth, have a spare on hand to ensure you can keep presenting well.

    • Paper copies – Have paper copies of every form you’re using, even if you plan to fill out forms digitally. Paper copies mean you can continue to collect information, even if your technology fails you.

    • Detergent pen – Small spills and stains on both tablecloths and clothing can be addressed with detergent pens.

    • Superglue – Superglue can fix most potential problems!

  • Trade show table covers are a critical part of your marketing plan. They set your trade show booth apart and gives your overall presentation a professional look. It also means it can derail your marketing efforts if you aren’t careful. Whether fitted or stretch contour styles, trade show table covers have to look their best every time you put them out, and that’s often challenging when you have to store them and get them out over and over again.

    Trade show table covers and table runners are designed to be wrinkle free. Yet repeated folding and improper storage can make even the most resilient fabric wrinkle. If you want to ensure that your trade show or presentation table looks its best every single time, storing trade show covers properly between uses is the key. All it takes is a little bit of effort to fold and store the cover right to reduce wrinkles and save you the time and frustration of ironing them before each use.

    How to Minimize Creases and Wrinkles in Your Trade Show Table Covers

    If you want to minimize creases and wrinkles in your trade show table covers, proper folding and storage is key. The following steps will help reduce the risk of wrinkles:

    1. To fold the table cover, start by grabbing the table cover from the long side, the side that has the seam.

    2. Fold this over the top of the table, matching the edge of the cover with the edge of the table.

    3. Repeat this process with the opposite side.

    4. Now, take the short sides of the table cover and fold them. The folded edge should match up with the edge of the table. On a long table will be a gap between the edges of the two short sides near the center of the table. Check to see that the flaps underneath the fold remain smooth during this process.

    5. Next, grab one edge of the table cover and line it up with the edge on the opposite side. This will effectively fold the table cover into thirds if done correctly.

    6. Fold the table cover in half to form a square.

    7. Make one more fold, grabbing the side that is made up of the same edges. This is the last fold.

    8. Now you are ready to store the table cover. If folded correctly, you should be able to slide the table cover into the bag it came in. If it will not slide into the bag, try folding it again.

    9. Store the table cover in a bag in a place where water is not likely to get to it. Avoid stacking other things on top of it, and avoid contact with direct sunlight. Clean as needed to prevent stains.

    Here are a few tips to help improve the process even further:

    At every step, smooth out the table cover to prevent bubbles and wrinkles.

    If you have wrinkles when you get the table cover out, use a handheld fabric steamer. This is easier and more effective than ironing.

    Never stuff the table cover into a bag. If it does not slide in easily, get a larger bag or re-fold the table cover.

  • table cover cleaning tipsTrade show table covers are a valuable investment. They help you create a unified appearance every time you head out to market your company. Yet with repeated use, your table covers are going to get dirty, and they may even stain if you don’t wash them well. When it’s time to wash them, you need to do it right to preserve the fabric and printing. Here are some tips to help with washing and drying trade show table covers, so they will deliver many years of reliable use.

    Table Cover Washing Tips

    Modern table covers are designed for durability and easy care. Most can be machine washed and dried, and steaming them to get out wrinkles works quite well. That said, you do need to know the different materials in order to chose the right washing techniques. At FLS Banners, we offer both knit polyester and poly poplin trade show covers. Here are the washing tips for both.

    Knit Polyester Trade Show Booth Table Covers

    Knit polyester is our standard material for trade show booth table covers. It’s durable, takes printing well, and drapes well over tables.

    Thankfully, knit polyester is quite easy to clean. You can simply wash it in a 160-degree wash cycle (cool water). Be sure to use a synthetic detergent. Avoid bleaching the table cover or using a detergent with a bleach agent. This can affect any flame retardant treatment of the fabric or the colorfastness of the printing.

    Once washed, toss the table cover in the dryer to tumble dry on a low temperature. Remove immediately. It should not need to be ironed if washed correctly, but you can touch up any creases with a 250-degree iron.

    For 100 percent polyester table covers, you need to avoid excessive heat. Also, do not leave the fabric too long in the dryer. This can damage it and lead to wrinkles that are hard to get out completely.

    Poly Poplin Trade Show Booth Table Covers

    Poly poplin is made from a plain weave with crosswise ribs that creates a corded surface and a very strong fabric. Washing it is easy. Simply wash it in cold water with a mild detergent. Machine dry it at a low temperature. To prevent wrinkles, remove as soon as the drying cycle is complete and store as you normally would. If you have problems with wrinkles or creases, either iron or steam the fabric to allow it to drape properly.

    With both poly poplin and knit polyester, storage is an important part of the washing and care. It is critical that you do not wad up the table covers and stuff them somewhere when not in use. This will clause wrinkles that are difficult to remove, and can also damage the overall nature of the material. These wrinkle-free materials should not crease, but only if you handle them right. After washing, fold the table cover up and store in a plastic bag. Avoid placing heavy items on top, as that could lead to creases.

  • trade-show-eventTrade shows offer a fantastic opportunity to move past the typical barriers inherent in marketing and get connected with the right customers. A well-prepared trade show booth can greatly increase your networking success. Whether you are a veteran or a brand new to the trade show scene, planning for the big event can be a daunting task. There are a number of steps to take before, during, and after your trade show. Here is a helpful checklist of tips and ideas to help you plan for your next trade show event.

    Pre-Trade Show Checklist

    1. Let's start with the basics. If you already know what your goals are for your trip and the message of your exhibit, next take a look at creating a vendor presentation for your booth. This can be optional but highly recommended.

    2. Next, pick your exhibitor space. Exhibit spaces usually go quickly, so it's best to act early and pick a spot that will fit your booth and offer the most exposure before it's taken. The best exhibiting spaces are usually near the front entrance of the trade show. If you can't secure a space near the front, at the very least find a corner or the end of the aisle to get maximum exposure.

    3. Once you have a spot picked out, it's time to design your trade show booth. There are many types of promotional materials available; from trade show banners, flags, table covers, and other trade show displays, really your budget and event space is the limit. FLS Banners offers convenient trade show display kits perfect for creating a great-looking booth that saves you time and money putting one together.

    4. Now it's time to create your trade show banners, booth materials, handouts, and other promotional products. This part of the process can take some time to prepare. Again, earlier is a good idea! FLS Banners offers a three-day proofing process and always priority shipping. Once you have submitted your order and graphics or logo via our easy online process, your trade show booth materials will be ready in no time!

    5. What else will you need printed or prepped before the big event? If you have fliers, pamphlets, stickers, or other kinds of handouts, you should get those ordered too. Will you be hosting a giveaway? Make sure prizes are in order.

    6. Make travel arrangements to and from the trade show for all staff that will be going. Everything from plane tickets, hotel rooms, transportation, and more will be booked quickly. Make sure you have arrangements prepared well in advance.

    7. Get the word out about your upcoming trade show event. Let current and potential customers know what event you will be at, where they can find you, and invite them to come. Using your email marketing list or social media accounts are good ways to do so.

    8. Get packing! Even if your booth materials have yet to arrive, it's always good to get a head start on putting together the essential supplies. Business cards zip-ties scissors First-Aid pens and highlighters paper clips multi-tool rubber bands stapler extension cords and surge protectors tape post-it notes comfortable shoes

    During the Show Checklist

    Depending on your goals for the trade show event, you may have a certain number of new leads you would like to gather or industry leaders you would like to network with. It often helps to put these goals on paper for you and your team. Be sure to:

    1. Be active. Keep moving, engage attendees, and promote positive body language. Your actions will stir engagement and attract more potential leads. Get out on the floor and make some new friends!

    2. Ask questions. Instigate the conversation with a question. By sparking genuine conversation, most attendees will be willing to discuss what you do.

    3. Be ready to demonstrate your product or service from memory. The more prepared you are, the more confidence you will generate, and the more you will impact a potential lead.

    4. Take lots of notes and be a good listener. At an average trade show, you will interact with hundreds of attendees. Most likely, you won't remember every detail of every conversation so it helps to take notes. Write down names, companies, titles, and other important details of each promising interaction. Take names and contact information as much as you hand out yours.

    5. Stay active on social media during the event. Make sure you are keeping your followers up-to-date on the event and what your team is doing.

    Post-Trade Show Checklist

    1. Revisit your notes and follow up. Who did you talk to? What did you learn? While the information is still fresh, send your new contacts a brief email to reconnect after the event. Make sure your follow up is prompt. You could sweeten the deal by extending special pricing, free trials, free samples, or other strategy to encourage a response.

    2. Apply what you learned. Go over your feedback surveys and recall verbal feedback you received during the event. Make sure you implement the feedback for your next trade show event. As some may argue, a trade show is only as good as you take home from it.

    With preparation and a little skill, you can make yours a success by connecting with your audience and learning from your experience. Are you ready for the big event? Contact FLS Banners and order your trade show display materials today!

  • Golf season is here! Whether you are in charge of a facility and need the right flags to mark holes and promote your sponsors, or you are a sponsor yourself who wants to ensure that your sponsor signs are as professional as they should be, custom golf flags are the answer. FLS Banners offers a wide range of golf flags to meet your needs, with full-color printing and customization available.

    What Is the Difference Between Tube Insert and Traditional Golf Flags?

    At FLS Banners, you have the option to choose between tube insert and traditional golf flag. Tube insert golf flags are a versatile option that can be quickly switched out after a tournament when new sponsors need to be promoted. These flags have a tube insert sewn onto the side hem where you can fit the display pole, allowing the full flag length to be displayed while the flag is securely hanging on the pole.

    Traditional golf flags have three grommet attachment rings on the side, rather than a pole insert. These are clipped on to the pole, standing out from the flag through grommet attachments. These flags have reinforcements on the end by the grommets, so the flag can fly freely without tearing or damaging the fabric.

    Both tube insert and traditional golf flags are a great option for golf tournament signage. With FLS Banners, you can create custom signs that will be an asset to your next golf event.

    About Golf Tournament Sponsor Flags

    A golf tournament can only be a success with sponsors, and sponsors deserve to have their investment highlighted. Custom golf flags with the logo of tournament sponsors provide the advertising that they deserve as a result of their sponsorship, and FLS Banners makes it simple and fast to order your custom golf sponsorship signs.

    Golf sponsor flags can fly anywhere on your tournament grounds. They allow your tournament supporters to proudly show their support, while giving the tournament planning committee a way to decorate the golf course for the day. At FLS Banners, golf sponsor flags are printed in full color, with double-side printing options, so your design displays clearly. At the end of the tournament, these flags make a great memento for sponsors to thank them for their support. Golf sponsorship flags are regulation size at 14”H x 20”W.

    About Hole Sponsor Flags

    Hole sponsor flags are another option for sponsors to show their support of your golf tournament or other event. These custom golf flags feature a full-color logo just like the other sponsorship flags, but also have the number of the hole printed clearly on each side of the flag. These are regulation size 14”H x 20”W flags and come in either traditional or tube style.

    Create Your Custom Golf Flags for Your Next Event!

    Custom golf sponsor flags will make your next event a success. They give you an option to allow sponsors advertisement, while also adding color and flair to the golf course during the course of the event. FLS Banners offers a wide range of options for your custom golf flags, including double and single-sided custom printing, an easy graphic submission process, and the option to make bulk orders. Whether you are a company who regularly sponsors golf tournaments and wants a stash of flags ready to go, or you are a tournament planner who wants to provide your sponsors with the right flags for their needs, you can trust us and our fast printing and shipping process.
