What are feather flags?

Searching for an out-of-the-box way to promote your business? Otherwise known as pennant banners, feather flags are designed to wave in the air and catch attention! As a spirited option to get in front of the customer, they’re a budget-friendly way to increase a business’s visibility and make the perfect wayfinding signage solutions. Ideal for outdoor locations, we print custom feather flags on durable, weather-resistant materials. Made to stand upright like flag poles or easily hoisted onto the side of buildings. 

Feather flags are usually tall and prominent, hard to miss. They are often in motion, which is what makes them so eye-catching and appealing. They appear to be floating like “feathers” in the wind hence the name.

What is a feather flag made of? 

Our feather flags are made of polyester because it is suitable for all-weather types and UV rays. Our full-color dye-sublimation printer works hard to process feather flag banners on 4 oz polyester fabric. You can choose from several different sizes based on your needs. We print with the intention that your design can stay vibrant for years.

When considering how your banner stands up, make sure you are considering the environment in which it will live. If you need help navigating this, one of our staff members can help! Feather flags can have square bases, cross bases, cross bases with added weight, and ground stakes. Square bases, similar to cross bases, are best on flat, smooth surfaces, making them an ideal choice for indoor use.

If you intend for outdoor use, we recommend using stakes to make your base sturdier. We offer stakes as part of your package, as well as bags to add weight to your bases.

Design 4 Inc. knows the importance of a good base for your banners, so we will choose the most suitable pole for you. Normally, we suggest aluminum because it is a sturdy yet lightweight metal that makes for a simple and quick setup and teardown.

What’s the difference between pennant and feather flags?

Although the two are similar, they are some important differences. Feather flags resemble feathers (of course), and pennants are always in the shape of an isosceles triangle. Pennants are usually always used as commemorative flags, typically to show support for a particular sports team. Feather flags have a plethora of uses.

How long do feather flags last?

If taken care of properly, your flag can last for years to come. We recommend following manufacturer instructions that typically include regular washing and air drying. 

Feather flags used indoors will definitely last longer than flags used outdoors. As a flag owner, you need to be cognizant of wind, sun, and negligence. Feather banners need to be properly maintained. Things that can damage your feather flag are long exposure to sunlight and harsh hail damage. Rain or heavy moisture causes the polyester to become wet and heavier, putting strain on the fabric and stitching of the flag. This could potentially cause tearing or the stitching to come undone.
