Choosing a Flag Banner for Your Advertising Display Project!
Single Sided Flag vs Double Sided Flag?
Choosing a single sided flag vs a double sided flag depends mostly on your flag graphic design. Is you design legible in reverse? A single sided flag will last longer outdoors than a double sided flag.
Single Sided Flag Banners: The flag graphics on the front of a single sided flag banner reads correctly, the back side is reversed and will read backwards. The dye sub inks bleed through between 80% to 90% depending on the flag colors so the back side will be visible. The human eye will see and read simple words correctly such as “OPEN” “CLEARANCE” “RESTAURANT” and many more. Single sided flags are most effective when kept simple with large bold text to catch the eye. A single sided flag will last longer outdoors since the flag banner material allows the wind to flow through the flag more easily for less resistance in the wind. The flag banner pole edge is finished with webbing for added durability, the outer edges are hemmed.
Double Sided Flag Banners: Both sides of the flag banner are individual prints that read correctly and can be different designs. Two flag banners are sewn back to back with a block out inner liner to keep the opposite side from showing through. Both sides of the flag graphics read correctly. Double sided flags are best for indoor events since customers will be viewing the flag up close and read time is longer. Double flags are also the best option for more detailed designs and anytime the graphic needs to read correctly on both sides. Both flag banner pole edges are finished with webbing for added durability, the outer edges are hemmed together with a liner.
Indoor Flag vs Outdoor Flag?
Indoor use or outdoor use is determined by the flagpole base, all are flagpoles and flag banners are made for indoor and outdoor use. Simply swap the flag base or add the water bag to go from an inside flagpole to an outside flagpole display! You can choose both bases to move your flag inside and outside as needed. Each individual flagpole has specially designed bases that work for the size and weight of that individual flagpole banner, you can find this information on the individual product web page.
Indoor Flagpoles: For the teardrop, feather and mamba flagpoles on flat surfaces you can choose from a collapsible flagpole cross base or a water fill-able flagpole water base. For high traffic areas we suggest using the water bag with the cross base for added stability. The telescoping flagpoles have large heavy duty water bases for hard surfaces. Our Empire series telescopic flags also offer a heavy duty cross base with a water bag.
Outdoor Flagpoles: For the teardrop, feather and mamba flagpoles outdoor in-ground areas we offer a ground spike, for outdoor sidewalk hard surfaces we offer a cross base with the water bag. Flags spin in the wind ensuring your marketing flag will not blow over. The telescoping flagpoles have large heavy duty water bases for hard surfaces which work great on sidewalks and flat ground surfaces.
