Custom Outdoor Flags For Businesses
Custom outdoor flags can be found outside of storefronts, promoting a business in an outdoor festival or market, as well as a trade show convention to enhance a brand's presence. Spring is upon us, and this means we'll slowly be pulling ourselves out of our shells and back outside. These flags can be used inside or out for sporting events, concerts, and arenas. The graphics are durable and weather resistant, including hardware meant to endure outdoor elements.

Custom Outdoor Flags – The Basics
The two main styles of flags are the Zoom and the Wind Dancer. The main differences? Well, to begin with the height of the Wind Dancers can all be adjusted (the Mini up to 8’3″, the LT up to 13’6″, and the MX up to 17’3″).
The Zoom flags are all a fixed height, though there are 3 different sizes (10′, 12′, and 16′) available for each. There are, in addition to the sizes, 3 different styles to choose from. The Teardrop, the Feather, and the Straight are all slight variations to the flag itself and how it sits on the pole. All our flags are printed in full colour on a 4 oz mesh material. This fabric is lightweight, and can be printed double-sided for a little bit extra.
Custom Outdoor Flags – The Base
The bases for the Wind Dancers can be filled with either water or sand for weight. The bases for the Zoom flags are a little different. The default stand is a durable floor base. Also included is a ‘Donut Base’ that can be filled with water for extra support. For outdoor use (in the ground, not pavement) there is also a ground stake included that can be put on the flag pole for extra stability.
There is an optional and additional stand that give a stronger, sturdier base. This additional stand is meant to be used with the Zoom flags. Similarly to the Wind Dancer stands, as it can be filled with water for extra weight.
Set-Up and Performance
The material is a lightweight 4 oz fabric. Setting up the flags is easy. To begin with, simply slide the pole inside the sewn pocket along the side of your finished flag. Both the fabric and flag is meant for this, so you will have to pull the flag taught. This will bend the end of the pole into its curved position.
The base can be changed without taking the flag off the pole. Simply pull off the floor base and attach the ground spike for outdoor (in dirt or grass) use.
Conversely, the Wind Dancers are a little different. In contrast to the Zoom flags, the poles of the wind Dancers remain visible. In this case, the fabric snaps onto the pole using the grommets inserted in the fabric.
The End Results
When thinking about creating your custom outdoor flags, keep in mind that they are best used as quick pieces to attract attention. Often viewed from a distance, they really shouldn't contain much information. Considering this, a logo and some good, strong brand colours might be all you need. In addition, maybe you'll show a phone number or web address. You want to announce your presence to the people looking for you. Much more information on a flag will only be lost, and clutter what should be a simple design.
