  • Feather flags are a great way to draw attention to your business and its offerings, both indoors and outdoors, but to get the full use out of them, you will need some feather flag accessories. From hardware to bags and even spikes to keep them in the ground, FLS Banners has the right accessories you can use to get full use out of your feather flags.

    Feather Flag Poles

    In order to display your feather flags, you will need feather flag poles to hold them. These run from the ground to the top of the pole and help the flag keep its shape and display well. We have small poles(8 to 10.5 foot), medium poles (12 to 14 foot), and large poles (16 to 17 foot) for your consideration.

    Feather Flag Bases

    Next, you will need a base to hold the flag steady, even in strong winds. The type of base you need will vary depending on where you will display your flag.

    For indoor use, an x-base is a good option. The x-base is x-shaped and lightweight, so you can easily move the flag from place to place. However, it is not very strong against the wind. If you need versatility to use flags indoors and outdoors, we offer water bags for x-bases. These add some weight to the x-base, so it can be used outdoors as well. You can order the x-base and water bag as a combo as well.

    If you will be using your flags outdoors, consider a ground spike base. These anchor the flag into dir

    A heavy water base is another good choice for both indoor and outdoor use. These bases are filled with water to provide durability in wind and traffic, then can be drained for transport to the next event or location.

  • feather-flags-indoor-useCustom feather flags have many uses outdoors. They’re often seen lining festivals, alongside car dealerships, or in front of stores, highlighting an important sale or other event. Yet that’s just one use of feather flags. Feather flags work well for indoor events as well. They create an eye-catching display that will draw attention to an area of a facility. Whether you are setting up for a trade show or are hoping to draw attention to a particular area of your business, like a sale area or a product you are trying to promote, custom feather flags work quite well for indoor purposes. FLS Banners has several high-quality, custom printed feather banners and flags for your consideration, and all are excellent choices for indoor use.

    Why Use Feather Flags Indoors?

    Feather flags have many purposes inside your business or at an indoor event. Just as when used outdoors, they draw attention exactly where it is needed. These flags stand above the heads of most guests or customers, so they are easily seen from anywhere in the building.

    Each flag is made with a premium fabric that is designed to be long-lasting and can withstand wet and windy conditions. The vibrant custom printing and stand-out frame design means that feather flags will be right at home either outside or indoors.

    Custom feather flags tell visitors that there’s something interesting to see or experience in a particular area of a building. If you’re in a convention or trade show, they draw the eyes of guests to your booth instead of the competition. In your own building, they can showcase an area where you want to get more foot traffic.

    Why should you use feather flags indoors? They are an eye-catching option that’s both affordable and simple to create. They are reusable, so you can use them again and again for one trade show and then the next. They are also simple to put up and take down.

    Indoor Versus Outdoor Use of Feather Banners and Flags

    Indoor use and outdoor use of fabric feather banners are typically for the same reason. The goal is to draw attention to something, and the flags do that very well. However, certain features of custom feather flags from FLS Banners make them work better than other brands when used indoors.

    For example, portability is an important feature when using these indoors. Our custom feather banners are lightweight and have lighter stand options, so they are easy to move from spot to spot. Also, flag stands with arms that keep the flag stretched tight, so it is noticeable with or without wind, are importation when using the flag indoors. You need to ensure that the flag is always upright and visible, and can’t rely on wind to keep it up. We have several fabric banner options that feature this design.

    Indoor Mounts for Feather Banners

    When using feather banners and flags indoors, you won’t have access to the ground to put a stake into, so you need a different mount to keep the flag upright. Since indoor environments don’t have wind to deal with, you don’t need to anchor the flags to the ground, but you do need to use something to ensure they don’t tip over. The two best options for indoor feather flag mounts are x-stands and water bases.

    X-stands provide a stable surface with a crossed design that is just enough to balance the flag and keep it in place. These are easy to move should you need to move your display to another part of the facility. Add an optional water bag that wraps around the x-base for extra weight and stability. This makes the x-base more flexible for both indoor and outdoor use.

    Water bases are square bases filled with water to keep the flag in place and upright. They work both indoors and outdoors, and are a bit more difficult to move than an x-base. These are ideal in high traffic areas where the flags may get bumped, but when you don’t need to move the flag very often.

    If you’re unsure which type of base is right for you, FLS Banners can help. Either one will be a great option for indoor use, and the choice will depend largely on how often you need to move the flag.

  • 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.
