What Are Teardrop Flags?
Teardrop flags also known as teardrop flag banners or feather flags are large flags that are, as you guessed, shaped like an upside teardrop. The best thing about ordering with us is that we can fully customize your design or help you create one for your business with our dye process. From there, the banners are attached to a base which is made of a durable, light aluminum pole.
The pole is then connected to the base or stuck into the ground, though getting a base provides more flexibility. If you don’t have one you may have to just plant it in the ground which isn’t readily available if you’re in a metropolitan area. After it is set up, the bendable flagpole will keep the flag extended and will be able to handle light winds, fully showing the banner to deliver your desired message. It’s great for outdoor use to capture the eyes of passing pedestrians and traffic to help advertise your business.
Double sided flags are the most visible and effective form of teardrop flags, giving you the ability to print your design on both sides. Each side can be the same or different, depending on your needs..
The double sided flags come with a lining in the middle that prevents each side from showing through to the other.
We recommend double sided for all your teardrop flags, as it provides the most vibrant and noticeable graphics from any direction.
As with all advertising options, double sided flags effectively deliver your desired the best, typically providing the best visibility by far and bang for your buck. Have you ever passed a poster or banner, only to look at it and wish you could see it again? Well, it happens more often than you think.
Fortunately, the double sided option allows passersby to really get a proper look, allowing the two sides to address potential questions or issues for maximum brand recognition. They’re almost a must have if you are placing teardrop feather banners in places where there is a lot of car traffic.
For the more cost sensitive browsers, single sided options are still effective even if they don’t provide quite the same value as double sided. Single sided work better for foot traffic than car traffic, because of 2 reasons. 1) cars pass by so quickly from one side it’s hard for them to see the other side if there is nothing there, but also 2) because pedestrians are closer they will be able to see the design shadow on the non-printed side which can help pique their interest, which isn’t possible with car traffic.
Because they are big and flashy, these banners are most effective outdoors. They are durable, weather resistant, and relatively large so they can last outside and effectively deliver your message from a distance. Typically, they are brightly colored so that they are easily seen.
While ideal for outdoors, teardrop flags are still effective for indoor use, particularly in situations where you are competing with others for their attention such as conferences, expositions, or trade shows.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Properly following these basic rules and guidelines will help your product life extend to years. On the other hand, poor handling can cause it to tear or rip a lot faster than anticipated. These are important notes because your flag may often get dirty if used outdoors or lugged around if used indoors.
- NEVER bleach your polyester flag
