10 Things You Should Know About Promotional Flags

google flags

Promotional flags have become a cost-effective way to attract attention to business premises and show stands across the country.

Available in all kinds of shapes and sizes, promo flags are a blank canvas for you to maximise your own brand identity and unique message.

Here are the top 10 Things You Should Know about them:

  • They are designed to be light and portable.
  • Flags and flag systems can be used indoors or outdoors.
  • Flags can be printed on one side (standard) and often show through writing on the reverse
  • 2 flags can be sewn back to back to ensure both sides read correctly if required.
  • Flags are designed to move in a light breeze to attract attention.
  • Digital colour is normally available.
  • Flags and flagpoles are secured to a portable base or ground spike (for use on grass)
  • Product life varies according to outdoor weather conditions and hours per day exposed to wind and rain. Will last up to six months exposed 24/7 to elements or up to 3 years if stored away each day.
  • There is no limitation to what designs you can have on a flag.
  • Flags come in many shapes and sizes, from banner shapes to feathers, sails, and teardrops.
  • Promotional flags offer an attractive alternative to traditional static signage, such as A-Boards. Demand for promotional flags continues to grow in the UK, particularly from the B2B community.

Buying feather flags can be a little confusing online too, so it's worth getting a price in writing.

It's also worth noting the following:

  • Not all prices include a flagpole and base option
  • Design is often an additional charge
  • Prices advertised in the print industry, tend to be net, that is, they do not include vat
  • Delivery tends to be extra
  • The best way to order your flags is at least 2 weeks in advance to avoid paying any surcharges for a quick turnaround (especially during spring, summer)
  • There are no standardised promotional flag sizes, so it's worth understanding the difference in sizing, to make sure they will be fit for the purpose
  • Not many companies advertising promotional flags actually make them, so understand where the origin of the flags are dispatched from, otherwise, you may incur further import duties
