A Guide To Feather Flags

Updated: Dec 22, 2023

In the realm of advertising and marketing, feather flags - also known as swooper flags, flutter flags, tall flags, advertising flags, blade flags, sail flags, teardrop flags, and windfeathers - have emerged as a powerful tool in recent times. These captivating promotional solutions have woven their way into various industries, from retail establishments and car dealerships to corporate events.


Not all feather flags are created equal! Before investing in feather flags for your business or event, it's imperative to understand that there are crucial variables to consider. Here's what sets them apart.


Size Matters

Feather flags span a range from approximately 6 feet to a towering 20 feet. Most frequently, you'll spot 15-foot flags lining the roadways. It's worth noting that flag sizes can be listed differently; some indicate just the flag size, while others measure from the ground to the top once mounted. This distinction can be substantial, so having a clear size in mind when ordering is essential. We're here to assist with any queries you may have.


Single or Double Sided

Feather flags are typically printed on the front with text and graphics visible on the back but in reverse. This is known as Single Sided or Single/Reverse printing and is suitable for most situations. However, in some cases, it's preferable for the flag to read correctly from both sides. This is what we call true Double Sided flags, crafted by printing two single-sided flags and sewing them back to back with a liner in between. Naturally, this superior option comes at an additional cost.


Essential Hardware

Various types of bases cater to different display needs, including ground spikes for outdoor use, scissor or cross bases with water bags for hard surfaces, wall mounts for attachment to walls, tent mounts for pop-up tents, and tire bases for securing flags under vehicle tires. Understanding your intended display environment is vital for selecting the right hardware.


Lifespan and Durability

The durability of feather flags is closely tied to the material used. We employ super poly knit fabric, renowned for its top-notch quality. Even with the best materials, long-term exposure to harsh outdoor conditions can curtail a flag's lifespan. It's advisable to bring them indoors during inclement weather. Additionally, it's worth noting that red and orange hues tend to fade faster than others. To address the burning question of how long a flag will last, there's no definitive answer. Flags should endure a minimum of three months but could potentially last several years, contingent upon factors like display duration, weather conditions, and maintenance.


Speedy Delivery

Once you place an order, the typical timeframe from production to delivery at your doorstep is approximately 5 to 10 business days. However, please keep in mind that artwork needs to be prepared on a template, and your approval of the proof is a prerequisite before production can begin.


Need Just a Replacement Flag?

Certainly! You can order just a flag if you initially purchased both the pole and flag from us. It's important to note that different feather flag manufacturers have their own unique templates to fit their respective poles. Consequently, we can't guarantee that our flags will be compatible with poles from other manufacturers.


Quality and Pricing

You might wonder why our flags come with a higher price tag compared to those found on Amazon. The answer is quality. We use superior materials and hardware and our flags are proudly printed in the USA. Furthermore, we take the time to review your artwork before sending it into production, addressing any potential issues with you beforehand. Unlike some online competitors, we offer a personalized and attentive service that goes beyond merely printing what you provide.


Feather flags are more than mere marketing tools; they are attention-grabbing, customizable solutions that can elevate your brand's visibility. With our commitment to quality and personalized service, we aim to be your trusted partner in making your feather flag investment a resounding success.
