Creative Ways to Get the Most Use out of Your Custom Flags
Creating custom flags is the best way to promote a business, they make great gifts, and they’re the best way to get noticed on your block, but they come with a few downsides. They are more difficult to get, because they require you to submit your design and wait for your flag to show up in the mail, while you can get a premade flag in an instant by going to a local store.
They cost more too. After all, custom flags feature higher quality inks, materials, and most are fully finished with multiple rows of stitching and professional hems.
If you put the time and the money into designing a custom flag, you want to get the most out of your purchase! You won’t do that if you simply put your flag up on a pole and forget about it.
Give one or more of the ideas on this list a try and you can get the most out of your display flags.
Choose the Right Flag
Getting the most out of your flag starts with you. If you choose the wrong flag, it will end up spending more time in your closet than out where people can see it.
Choosing the right flag means thinking about how you want to use your flag most of the time. A few examples of flag products include:
- Display banner flags are great for businesses that offer sales and discounts regularly.
- Teardrop banner flags are a good choice for organizations that regularly promote at outdoor events.
- Custom banners are a must-have for event organizers who have to orchestrate parking.
- Hand flags are a great promotional item because they can be passed out at sporting events.
Take Your Flag Indoors
Once you have determined what kind of flag you will get the most use out of, it’s time to start getting creative. For example, just because you promote your business with teardrop flags at many events doesn’t mean you can’t find other ways to use them when those events are over.
Although flags are traditionally used outdoors, you can also bring them indoors. For example, those same teardrop flags would be a fun way to decorate the office, or they can be placed in the doorway of your building.
Traditional rectangular flags can easily be brought inside. Instead of flying your flag on a pole, consider hanging it on the wall inside. If you really want to get creative, consider using shower clips to turn your flag into a curtain or a room divider. You can also hang it in the window and use it as a window curtain.
Look for New Ways to Use It Outdoors
The quickest and easiest way to use a flag outdoors is to hang it on a vertical pole. This is one of the best ways to display your flag, but don’t think it’s the only way you can display your flag. You don’t have to have special outdoor flags either!
If you want to keep your flag on a pole, but you want to do something a little different, consider hanging it from an angled pole. This is an especially striking way to display flags when you have more than one.
Flags can be hung without a pole as well. They look best this way when they are hung on an exterior wall.
If you have a smaller flag, it can be used to decorate the yard or a garden. Stake the flag into the ground next to a bench or in the middle of a flower bed for a striking display.
If you’re looking for new ways to hang your United States Flag, make sure that you follow the rules for displaying it. For example, you should never hang the United States Flag from a tree, but other flags look great hung from the branches of a tree. For example, bunting woven through the branches of a tree is a great way to decorate for a family reunion, a wedding, or another outdoor event!
Don’t let that flag gather dust in the closet or fade in the sun on that vertical flag pole. With the ideas on this list, you can get the most bang for your buck and display your flag all year long, indoors and out!
