1.Which Shape is right for me?
There are essentially 3 types of shape to choose from and then some minor variants in style on those shapes.
5 years ago the most popular type of event flag was the rectangle shaped print as seen here. This is the only pole kit which has a cross arm. These flags are still quite popular at trade shows, particularly outdoors but have been usurped as the most desirable by variations of the Blade.
The name “feather flag” is most apt for this flag shape and there are 3 main styles:
1.Straight – a straight cut at the bottom and by far our most popular style
2.Convex – the cut at the bottom bends out like the bottom half of a circle
3.Concave – the cut at the bottom bends in like the top half of a circle – this style is not popular, perhaps due to some of the print area being lost but it doesn’t make it cheaper as the same amount of material is required to run through the printer.
The other popular choice is the dewdrop flag which is also commonly known as the teardrop flag but is one and the same thing. This style of flag is ideal if your logo is round and/or if you have very limited space where the feather flag is to be located as there isn’t as much material taking up room – ideal for outside a small cafe or on a tight exhibition stand. This shape looks great on our event gazebo flag bracket which gives extra height and movement in a crowded event space.
