Which Is The Better Display, A Tear Drop Banner Or A Feather Banner?

Colorful flag banners are a great way to display a business logo or marketing message at a trade show, outdoor festival, or other event. They also work well to attract passersby to a storefront. The durable fabric makes them perfect for all weather conditions, while bright colors and movement make them eye-catching. Two of the most popular types of flag banners are tear drop banners and feather banners. Depending on how you plan to use the banner, one may be a better choice than the other.

Tear Drop Banners

A Tear Drop Banner is shaped like a drop of water, and they tend range in size from 7 to 15 feet tall. The drop-shaped flag is attached to a flexible post that curves to one side, and the post is attached to a base with a bungee cord. They are not difficult to set up; however, the flags can sometimes fall over in heavy winds. Some people find it helpful to hold down the base with sandbags. Compared with feather banners, teardrop banners are larger and a little bit more expensive, but their interesting shape makes them especially noticeable. Because they are easy to set up and take down, they are ideal for mobile displays, like trade shows.

Feather Banners

A feather banner is a tall, narrow rectangle with one curved edge at the top, resembling a feather in shape. These flags are usually between 10 and 18 feet in height. Similar to the teardrop banners, feather banners are attached to a post that is set into a base. These flags are usually slightly less expensive than teardrop flags, but both are printed with the same high-quality color images that become part of the fabric. Feather flags are often preferred for permanent or long-term displays, like outside apartment complexes or new property developments.

Both types of banners can be printed with customized displays and both are durable. Flags generally don’t fade in sunlight or become threadbare with use. However, it’s a good idea to bring in banners, if possible, during very bad weather, and to wipe them clean of dirt and debris on a regular basis. This will keep them looking bright and extend their life.
