Unexpected Places You Can Use Your Custom Flag:

December 18, 2018

Quick, where’s your flag? You know, the one with your logo or company name? The corporate colors in big bright stripes? Maybe your company’s mascot, or slogan? If it’s rolled up in a storage closet somewhere, you’re not getting as much value out of your investment as you could be.

It should be surprising that we love flags. And clearly, you’ve got an appreciation for them as well; that’s why you’re here. In the 8 years we’ve been manufacturing high-quality flags, banners, awnings, and signs, we’ve heard about (and seen) some amazing places and ways to use custom flags.

Outside Your Business - Mark your place by flying your flag at your place of business. The colors, motion, and design add life and movement to your storefront or office.

Tailgating - Whether the game is pro or pee-wee, flags and tailgate parties just seem to go together. Get you flag on a high enough pole and it becomes a great way for friends and clients to find you in a crowded infield.  Speaking of which…

Flyin’ On Race Day - In-field or parking lot, race day is the perfect time to let those colors fly.

Festivals - Whether your outdoor gathering tastes veer toward the musical, the crafty, or the foody, festivals seem like they’re custom made for banners and flags.

5ks, 10k, Fun Runs, Marathons, Bike Races and More - It only takes a couple people and a logo to put together a 5K. And where there are people running, there are people watching the people run. Hoist your flag or hang your banner as part of an event sponsorship. Or show those colors at the finish line.

Parades - If ever there was an event made for your flag, it’s a parade.

Sales and Promotions - Once your customers come in, can they find what you want them to find? Suspend your flag from the ceiling to make sure they don’t miss it.  Or consider have a set of flags made just for this purpose and move them around as needed.

Wave It From The Summit - What’s the first thing mountain climbers do when they summit a peak?  Plant the flag, snap the selfie and post to Facebook and Instagram.  Even if your vacation isn’t taking you to the top of K2, every vacation is a chance to do a little shameless self-promotion.

Come Sail Away - You’re on a boat and it’s going fast and you’ve got a great opportunity to let that flag fly.  Plus all that blue water makes for an amazing background.

Really Make an Entrance - Football and soccer teams have to take the field for the game to begin.  Might as well give them something to carry.

Weddings - Absolutely.

Out On The Factory Floor - Hang flags to mark achievements … hours without an accident, years of service, new model launches, company anniversaries. If it’s a milestone for your company, it’s worth a flag.

At Parties - The Japanese traditionally fly koinobori - colorful windsocks and flags shaped like carp - to mark Kodomo no Hi or Childrens’ Day.  Celebrate your own kids, or your company, by flying your flag on your company’s anniversary or other special day.

Pennants for the Porch - Run a restaurant or have an outdoor seating space?  Add some visual pop with customized flags. Looking for something a little more subtle that You can design flags with big blocks of your company logo colors to bring the space alive.

Make Your Mark Even If You’re Not There Yet - Haven’t broken ground or begin renovations? Instead of  the standard Coming Soon banner, plant some poles and hoist a flag (or three).
