Order Summary


Teardrop Flags Printing from Cheap as Prints

Teardrop flags are also referred to as beach flags and offer a unique solution for indoor and outdoor signage. The shape of the flag offers a greater design area and unlike any other option, teardrop flags remain taught and do not flutter in the breeze. Teardrop flags are very popular with event managers, festival organisers, schools, local authorities, sports equipment manufacturers, and suppliers.

Teardrop flags undergo a dye-sublimation process for graphic printing, ensuring the accurate reproduction of vibrant and intricate designs. The printing is available on durable knitted polyester or aero mesh material, particularly suitable for areas prone to high winds and exposure. The dye-sublimation technique enhances colour vibrancy and prevents ink runs, contributing to the flag’s durability. With a UV lifespan exceeding five years, teardrop flags maintain their visual appeal and withstand diverse weather conditions, establishing them as a reliable and stylish choice for a variety of promotional and decorative purposes.

As part of our dedication to environmental conservation, we exclusively use sustainable and eco-friendly recycled fabrics made from 100% recycled yarn. The utilisation of recycled polyester gives new life to a non-biodegradable material that would otherwise end up in landfills or contribute to ocean pollution. This innovative recycling approach allows us to save more energy compared to traditional production methods, simultaneously assisting in the decrease of greenhouse gas emissions. By adopting this approach, we actively contribute to the promotion of a sustainable future in the long term, supporting recycling within a circular economy.

Base Options for Teardrop Flags

Selecting the appropriate base for your teardrop flag hinges on several factors, including deployment location, portability, size, and usage conditions. Each base is tailored for specific applications, whether intended for short-term or long-term use. For indoor displays, a cross-base is suitable for most flag sizes. If aiming for a more secure outdoor display appearance, we suggest upgrading to our heavy-duty water-based options.

    • Cross Base

      Cross Base

      Cross bases offer an economical and efficient solution for indoor displays on various ground surfaces, be it soft or hard. These bases take up minimal floor space, directing attention to the flag advertisement. The lightweight and collapsible design of the cross base facilitates easy deployment, storage, and transportation. While compatible with all flag shapes, it is especially recommended for flags with a height not exceeding 3.2 meters.

    • Ground Spike

      Ground Spike

      Ground spikes offer a robust solution for securely anchoring your display, making them well-suited for applications in fields and soft ground. Crafted from steel with a chrome finish, the base is resistant to rust and remains stable in strong winds, even on uneven terrain. It’s essential to consider that the ground spike is not suitable for loose soil or wood chips, and the ground must be levelled. Furthermore, it is not advised for use with large or extra-large poles.

    • Double Ground Spike

      Double Ground Spike

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

      Furthermore, the flagpole securing spindle is seamlessly integrated with the ground spike, allowing for a 360-degree rotation. This feature ensures the visibility of the flag 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 essential to note that the double ground spike is not suitable for loose soil or wood chips, and the ground must be levelled. This versatile option accommodates all flag shapes and sizes, supports poles up to 5 meters tall, and can withstand wind speeds of up to
      18 mph.

    • Drive on Foot Base

      Drive on Foot

      The drive-on-foot base proves to be a perfect option for forecourts, car showrooms, or outdoor events. Made from robust galvanised steel, this base is engineered for long-lasting durability. The mechanism involves driving a vehicle onto the foot, creating a stable and level foundation, with the vehicle acting as a counterweight to the flag and pole. The additional weight of the vehicle makes this drive-on-foot base suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, accommodating flag poles of any height. It comes equipped with a rotating spigot for added convenience.

    • Water Filled Base

      Water Filled

      Water-filled bases are recommended when constraints on transport and carrying weights are a consideration. Made from durable polyethylene, the base is lightweight, making it easy to transport to your desired location. It is ideal for displaying flags on flat surfaces, whether indoors or outdoors, and is available in capacities of 15L, 20L, and 30L. The water-filled base can accommodate flags of all shapes and sizes, supporting poles up to 5 meters in height.

  • What is a teardrop flag?

    A teardrop flag is a type of advertising flag with a unique teardrop-shaped design. It  features a curved top and a straight bottom, resembling a teardrop when flying.

  • What are teardrop flags used for?

    Teardrop flags are used for outdoor advertising and promotional purposes. They are commonly displayed at events, trade shows, storefronts, and outdoor locations to attract attention and convey messages or branding.

  • What materials are used in teardrop flag printing?

    Teardrop flags are printed using a dye-sublimation process on durable knitted polyester or aero mesh. The 110gsm polyknit fabric, which boasts a smooth silk finish, is ideal for both indoor and outdoor displays. On the other hand, the 200gsm aero mesh fabric, characterised by its sturdy composition and perforated with small holes, ensures durability by allowing strong winds to pass through. This makes it especially well-suited for use in open outdoor spaces and beach environments.

  • What sizes are available for teardrop flags?

    Teardrop flags are available in a range of sizes, starting from more compact options at 2.2 meters in height and extending to larger sizes reaching up to 4.2 meters. The choice of size depends on your advertising requirements and the level of visibility you aim to attain.

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

    Both finishing choices include elastic around the sides along with a trim-to-colour finish. Nonetheless, the neat-cut alternative is advisable for brief events, whereas the hemmed finish, equipped with its double 10mm hem, is better suited for extended displays, such as those observed in a garage forecourt.

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

    If wind speeds reach 35mph or achieve a gale force of 7, it is recommended to move the teardrop flag indoors. The use of aero mesh material (beach air mesh) during the printing process improves durability, making these flags particularly suitable for areas susceptible to windy conditions.

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

    The flagpole is constructed from fiberglass, enhancing both its durability and lifespan.

  • Do teardrop flags come with bases?

    Certainly, teardrop flags can be purchased with or without bases. There are several base choices to select from, including cross-type bases, ground spikes, double ground spikes, drive-on-foot bases, and water-fill options with capacities ranging from 15L, 20L, to 30L.

  • What are the recommended base options for teardrop flags?

    Your selection of the base hinges on your display requirements and the specific location. Standard base options encompass cross-type bases to ensure stability, ground spikes tailored for soft ground, double ground spikes designed for larger and heavier poles, drive-on-foot bases suitable for forecourts, and water-fill bases ideal for situations where weight limitations are a consideration.

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

    The provided flagpole has an approximate diameter of 2cm.

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

    In the case of single-sided crest flags, the printing results in a mirrored image on the opposite side, with an estimated 60% print-through visible on the flag.

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

    For regular or short-term applications, it is advisable to opt for single sided teardrop flags. However, for taller pole installations or prolonged use, it is recommended to select double sided crest flags.

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

    Double sided teardrop flags are comprised of two knitted flags with a blockout membrane sandwiched between them. All three layers are stitched together and supplied as a unified item.

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

    You can clean flags in a washing machine using a 30° wash cycle with regular household detergent. It’s essential to let the flag thoroughly dry before storing. Ensure flat drying and avoid tumble drying, ironing, dry cleaning, or using bleach.

  • What is the UV lifespan of teardrop flags?

    Teardrop flags produced with dye-sublimation printing demonstrate a UV lifespan exceeding five years. Nevertheless, prolonged exposure to UV rays and air pollution can result in gradual discoloration, potentially causing white sections of the flag to shift to grey. It is advisable to carefully choose the flag display location, considering these factors.

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

    Teardrop flags, when exposed to frequent use in standard conditions, generally have an average lifespan of around 12 months. To extend their durability, it is advisable to store the flags indoors during adverse weather conditions. This precaution can significantly contribute to preserving the quality and longevity of the teardrop flags over time.

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

    Avoid situating the display in challenging positions or near sharp objects. Ensure ample space for the flag to rotate freely, and address any frayed edges by trimming, reinforcing, and re-hemming as needed. In adverse weather conditions, particularly during heavy rain and high winds, dismantle the flag to prevent additional weight on the pole.
