Feather flags are a great way to market and draw attention to your business. Custom flags can be created to promote a special offer, business hours, a new location, and much more. When you buy these flags, they are an investment that can last for years if they are cared for in the right way. Here are a few tips for taking care of one or more custom flags.
The first step to taking care of your custom flag is to put it together correctly. Follow the instructions carefully to set up and install the flags. If they are not put together correctly they can become more susceptible to damage. It’s also important to have the flags placed somewhere safe. Flags shouldn’t be too close to streets or parking lots but can be close to buildings for protection and so they can be seen at all times.
Extreme weather can directly negatively impact a feather flag. Heavy rain, snow, hail, and high winds can all damage the hardware and fabrics of the flag. Large enough hail storms can actually put holes in a flag whereas a wind storm could disconnect the flag from its base and blow it away altogether. When you are flying your feather flags, keep an eye on the weather. If there is bad weather in the forecast, its best to take down the flags and bring them indoors.
A great way to take care of your custom made flags is to take them down periodically. For example, it’s good to bring the flag into a building at night so they don’t sit out in the elements. Being indoors at night doesn’t only protect them from the elements but also from being defaced or stolen. If you want to keep them up 24 hours a day, consider taking them down in the cooler months like the end of fall through the end of winter. They can easily be disassembled for storage until the next season.
Like any other outdoor signage, feather flags are at risk for damage over time. However, if and when you take great care of your custom flags, they can last for years. These flags can be used year after year to promote your business if they are set up correctly and fly in the right place. Keeping your flags out of bad weather is another important way to take care of them. Last and certainly not least, taking your custom flags down now and again is always a good idea.
