Advertising flags and banners are one of the simplest, most affordable and effective methods of getting attention to your business. You simply have to install it in certain strategic locations and then leave it. It will do the job of getting attention and providing important information to potential customers.
There is a difference between an advertising flag and a banner in terms of function. A flag is mainly used for drawing attention while banners are for providing information. This is due to the fact that flags are usually installed on top of flagpoles and are constantly flying in the air. The constant movement which is quite eye-catching also makes any inscription illegible. A banner is less attention-grabbing but can contain valuable information such as promotions or contact details for your business. Banners can be placed in sidewalks or outside your store or office using stands.
Between these two advertising tools , flags are more difficult to install. A concrete foundation is usually needed in order to provide sturdy support to the flagpole. A weak foundation can lead to the flagpole falling over during very strong winds. Some foundations are buried into the ground to provide anchor while others remain above ground with only the weight keeping the pole standing.
Banners are usually displayed using movable stands. Its installation only requires attaching the banner to the stand and placing it in the desired location. A downside to this is that it can be easily vandalized. Some large banners are installed on large vacant building walls using metal frames.
