1. How long will feather banners last?
Our banner poles normally last anywhere between 3-10 years, while flags could last from 1-3 years, depending on how well you take care of them, the UV exposure and local climate. We recommend refreshing your design and fabric banners when you need the flags to look fresh again.
2. Will my printed fabric banner fabric fade?
Due to UV exposure, fabric banner colors will eventually fade. Depends majorly on the UV exposure of your area and the colors on the flag, specifically darker colors like black, deep red, and dark blue backgrounds will fade faster than designs with lighter colors. White, light blue, and yellow, those don’t fade in the sun as quickly. For more detailed info, please check here (https://lushbanners.com/uv-proof-printing.html)
3. Are feather banners, feather flags, and feather flag banners the same thing? Are flag banners the same thing? How about teardrop banners, bowhead banners?
The terms feather banner, feather flags and feather flag banners are interchangeable. Though people call them different things according to preference, we like to refer to them as feather banners. They all mean the same thing and we will know what you mean if you use any of those terms.
Flag banners are a more generalized term. No matter the shapes, Feather banners, teardrop banners, bowhead banners and rectangular flag banners all fall into this big category.
Teardrop banners is one kind of flag banner that has a distinguished teardrop shape. Bowhead banners are similar to feather banners but with 3 different bottom shapes to choose from.
4. What are the differences between the Feather Banners and Bowhead Banners?
Great question! The two are very similar other than the bottom shapes. While feather banners have beautiful streamlined bottom shape like feathers, the bowhead has angled, straight and concave bottom options,
5. Will my design cover the entire flag or just a portion of it?
We’ll print to the very edge to achieve a “wide-screen” effect, except one-day printing, where the pole pockets portion will be covered by black or white canvas for speed production.
6. Are your banners fireproof?
Though our banners are highly resistant to heat, most of our polyester products will melt and burn if they come in contact with flames. We recommend keeping all of your feather banners away from sparks or flames.
7. Are the flag poles interchangeable between different banner sizes?
Each of our flag poles are designed to support one single sized banner. A large flag pole is thicker, will not accommodate a small or medium banner, and vice versa. Be sure you match up the size of your banner with the correct sized pole. Let us know if you have questions or need to order extra banners or replacement poles.
8. Can I have different images on the front and back of double-sided feather banners?
Yes! You can choose to design one side or both so that the sides are the same or both sides are different. Be sure to select the Double Sided Printing (3 Layers) options when you select product options.
9. What we can see on the back of a single-sided banner?
If you choose to print a single-sided flag banner, please know that to save you time and money, the design is bleeded through rather than printed on the back side. This means that though you can see the design on the other side, it will be mirrored, texts are not readable. If you want to have the same message appear perfectly on both sides, you will need to select the double-sided option.
10. What are “Best Feather Flags”? How does it compare to “Cheap / Low Quality” ones?
Poles: The best feather flags start with commercial fully fiberglass poles, which are the most durable and flexible on the market for a perfect feather shape presentation.
Printing material: Our flags are made of outdoor treated polyester fabric that is at least 4oz thick, so they can vividly last 12 months or longer outdoors. Cheap feather flags are made of nylon or thinner fabric and will wear after a fairly short amount of time only lasting several months.
Reinforced finishings: The best feather flags that are made by us come with pole pockets & tips that are reinforced with oxford cloth or leather strips to improve the longevity.
Printing Resolution and Quality: The best ones are digitally printed edge to edge at 720 dpi, bringing out a wide screen effect. Cheap feather flags are made using silk screening, and come with a pre-made black or white sleeve. The flag graphic area will be narrower compared to the best ones.
