Order Summary

 

Feather Flags Printing from Cheap as Prints

Feather flags also known as feather banners have a distinctive shape with a curved top. They are perfect for businesses and show organisers to promote their services, brand, or event. The name ‘feather flag’ comes from the shape of the flag which is like a bird’s feather (quill). Feather flags have a broad range of uses and are perfect for high-footfall areas or locations with restricted space. For example, coffee shops, car sale forecourts, petrol stations, trade shows, beaches, museums, and so on.

Feather flags go through a dye-sublimation process for graphic printing, guaranteeing the reproduction of vivid and intricate designs. The printing is offered hard-wearing knitted polyester or aero mesh material that is more suitable for areas susceptible to high winds and exposure. The dye-sublimation technique not only intensifies colour vibrancy but also prevents ink runs, promoting the flag’s durability. With a UV lifespan surpassing five years, feather flags retain their visual allure and endure various weather conditions, establishing them as a dependable and stylish option for diverse promotional and decorative uses.

In our commitment to preserving the environment, we exclusively employ sustainable and eco-friendly recycled fabrics crafted from 100% recycled yarn. Utilising recycled polyester provides a renewed purpose for a non-biodegradable material that would otherwise contribute to landfills or ocean pollution. Through this inventive recycling method, we conserve more energy compared to conventional production methods, concurrently aiding in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. By doing so, we actively contribute to the establishment of a sustainable future over the long term, championing recycling within a circular economy.

Base Options for Feather Flags

Choosing the right base for your feather flag depends on factors such as deployment location, portability, size, and usage conditions. Each base is designed for specific applications, catering to both short-term and long-term use. A cross-base is suitable for most flag sizes when used for indoor displays. For a more secure outdoor display, we recommend upgrading to our heavy-duty water-based options

  • Cross Base

    Cross Base

    Cross bases provide a cost-effective and practical solution for indoor displays on both soft and hard ground surfaces. These bases occupy minimal floor space, ensuring that the attention remains focused on the flag advertisement. The lightweight and collapsible design of the cross base makes it easy to deploy, store, and transport. While suitable for all flag shapes, it is particularly recommended for flags with a height not exceeding 3.2 meters.

  • Ground Spike

    Ground Spike

    Ground spikes provide a sturdy solution to securely anchor your display, making them an ideal choice for use in fields and soft ground. Constructed from chrome-finished steel, the base is resistant to rust and remains steadfast in strong winds, even on uneven terrain. It’s important to note that the ground spike is not suitable for loose soil or wood chips, and the ground must be leveled. Additionally, it is not recommended for use with large or extra-large poles.

  • Double Ground Spike

    Double Ground Spike

    Double ground spikes provide an optimal solution for larger and heavier poles, making them well-suited for compact terrains and outdoor soft ground displays. Crafted from robust chrome steel, these spikes are rust-proof and designed for long-lasting durability. The stake is firmly inserted into the ground, creating a solid foundation to support the flag. Its sharp pointed end facilitates easy hammering into the ground, ensuring a straightforward yet effective display.

    Moreover, the flagpole securing spindle is seamlessly integrated with the ground spike, allowing for a 360-degree rotation. This feature ensures that the flag can be seen from all directions. As the spike is driven into the ground, the immediate surroundings remain clear of trip hazards or visually obstructive weighting rings, making it particularly suitable for high-traffic areas.

    It’s important to note that the double ground spike is not suitable for loose soil or wood chips, and the ground must be leveled. This versatile option is compatible with all flag shapes and sizes, accommodating poles up to 5 meters tall, and is capable of withstanding wind speeds of up to 18 mph.

  • Drive on Foot Base

    Drive on Foot

    The drive-on-foot base is an ideal choice for forecourts, car showrooms, or outdoor events. Constructed from durable galvanised steel, the base is designed for longevity. The mechanism involves driving a vehicle onto the foot, ensuring a stable and level foundation, with the vehicle serving as a counterweight to the flag and pole. Thanks to the added weight of the vehicle, this drive-on-foot base is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, accommodating flag poles of any height. It comes complete with a rotating spigot for added convenience.

  • Water Filled Base

    Water Filled

    Water-filled bases are advisable in situations where transport and carrying weights pose limitations. Crafted from robust polyethylene, the base is lightweight, facilitating easy transportation to your preferred location. It is well-suited for displaying flags on flat surfaces, whether indoors or outdoors, and is offered in capacities of 15L, 20L, and 30L. The water-filled base accommodates flags of all shapes and sizes, supporting poles up to 5 meters in height.

FAQ's

  • What are feather flags?

    Feather flags, also known as flutter flags or swooper flags, are tall, narrow banners that are often used for outdoor advertising and promotional purposes. They are typically designed with a distinctive feather-like shape that catches attention and promotes visibility.

  • Where can feather flags be used?

    Feather flags can be effectively used in a variety of settings, including outdoor events, trade shows, business promotions, car dealerships, and retail spaces, providing a dynamic and attention-grabbing advertising solution. Their versatile design makes them suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments.

  • What materials are used in feather flag printing?

    Feather flags undergo a dye-sublimation printing process on resilient materials like knitted polyester or aero mesh. The 110gsm polyknit fabric, featuring a silk finish, is well-suited for indoor or outdoor displays, while the 200gsm aero mesh fabric, fortified with a robust structure and perforated with small holes, ensures longevity by allowing high winds to pass through. This material is particularly suitable for open outdoor spaces and beach environments.

  • What sizes are available for feather flags?

    Feather flags come in various sizes, ranging from smaller options like 2.4 meters tall to larger XL sizes reaching up to 5 meters in height. The size you choose depends on your specific advertising needs and the visibility you want to achieve.

  • What is meant by clean-cut and hemmed finished feather flags?

    Both finishing options feature elastic around the sides with a trim-to-colour finish. However, the clean-cut option is recommended for short-term events, while the hemmed finish, with its double 10mm hem, is more suitable for prolonged displays, like those seen in a garage forecourt.

  • What wind speed can feather flags withstand in outdoor settings?

    In the event of wind speeds reaching 35mph or reaching a gale force of 7, it is advisable to relocate the feather flag indoors. The utilisation of aero mesh material (beach air mesh) in the printing process enhances durability, making these flags especially fitting for locations prone to windy conditions.

  • What material is the flagpole made from for feather flags?

    The flagpole is made from fiberglass to improve both durability and lifespan.

  • Do feather flags come with bases?

    Yes, feather flags can be ordered with or without bases. There are various base options available, including cross-type bases, ground spikes, double ground spikes, drive-on-foot bases, and water-fill options in capacities of 15L, 20L, or 30L.

  • What are the recommended base options for feather flags?

    The choice of base depends on your display needs and the location. Common base options include cross-type bases for stability, ground spikes for soft ground, double ground spikes for larger and heavier poles, drive-on-foot bases for forecourts, and water-fill bases for situations where weight constraints are a concern.

  • What is the diameter of the supplied flagpole for feather flags?

    The diameter of the supplied flagpole is roughly 2cm.

  • How will the print appear on single sided feather flags?

    For single sided feather flags, the printing creates a mirrored image on the reverse side, with an approximate 60% print-through of the flag.

  • Is it better to opt for single or double sided feather flags?

    For standard or brief applications, it is suggested to select single sided feather flags. Nevertheless, for taller pole installations or extended usage, it is recommended to choose double-sided crest flags.

  • What is the printing process for double sided feather flags?

    Double sided feather flags consist of two knitted flags with a blockout membrane positioned between them. All three layers are stitched together and provided as a single item.

  • Can feather flags be washed if it becomes dirty or stained?

    Flags can be washed in a washing machine on a 30° wash with normal household detergent. Always allow your flag to completely dry out before storing. Be sure to flat dry and do not tumble dry, iron, dry clean, or bleach.

  • What is the UV lifespan of feather flags?

    Feather flags created through dye-sublimation printing exhibit a UV lifespan surpassing five years. However, extended exposure to UV rays and air pollution may lead to gradual discoloration, potentially causing white sections of the flag to transition to grey. It is recommended to thoughtfully select the flag display location, considering these factors.

  • What is the life expectancy of the feather flag itself?

    Feather flags, subject to heavy use in typical conditions, typically possess an average lifespan of approximately 12 months. To prolong their durability, it is recommended to store the flags indoors when facing adverse weather conditions. This precaution can significantly aid in maintaining the quality and longevity of the feather flags over time.

  • What is the best way to maximise the life span of the feather flag?

    Prevent placing the display in challenging positions or close to sharp objects. Provide sufficient space for the flag to rotate freely, and attend to any frayed edges by trimming, reinforcing, and re-hemming them. During unfavorable weather conditions, especially in heavy rain and high winds, disassemble the flag to avoid additional weight on the pole.
