Moving material is always more attention-grabbing than static signs, making free-standing flags the next level option when it comes to your next advertisement. First off, it's important to know that there are a multitude of different flag designs you can choose from, such as; teardrop, rectangular, feather and tower to name a few. All of which are shaped just as the name implies. Let's now take a deeper look into how freestanding flags can be used to benefit your brand.

Versatility:

Free-standing flags are extremely versatile in both their intended uses and also in the various styles you have to choose from depending on the event or brand image you are trying to portray. Often you’ll find various flags in car yards, outside cafes, real estate open homes and other events where quick attention needs to be drawn. Due to the flags being very easy to transport and setup they can realistically be used for any function you can think of. They can even be mounted any way you’d like as well, making them one of the most versatile forms of signage.

As mentioned above, depending on the event or purpose of the flag, certain styles may benefit your brand more than others, for example; if you’re to host a wine tasting then a flag-shaped like a wine glass would most benefit your events theme and overall brand image. The fact there are various shapes and styles to choose from just allows for that extra layer of interest when using the freestanding flag.

Durability:

Since a flag by nature is not a static object it is extremely durable. A flag naturally moves with the wind which gives it the advantage when compared to all other signs that have to let air through using tiny holes which would otherwise risk breaking when used for outside applications.

Double-Sided:

Like many other signs, flags, of course, have the ability to be double-sided, which again is just another positive for freestanding flags. Simply put, double-sided advertising gives you twice the coverage & exposure. Be sure to position your flags in a strategic location to take advantage of both printed sides.

In conclusion, you can see that there are many features that make the freestanding flag stand out compared to other forms of signage in the same category. Depending on the intended purpose there are different styles of signs that may benefit you the most, but if in doubt try out the flag! It is durable, versatile & suitable for both indoor and outdoor uses - you can't go wrong.
