postheadericon How to effectively use advertising flags in your indoor campaigns!

Many businesses and companies who purchase advertising flags or banner flags for outdoor use can also adapt the same advertising campaign for their indoor showroom or marketing trade show. The increase popularity of flags for outdoor use is becoming very very popular for indoor teardrop flags in trade show environments. We attended a local trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada the SGIA which is a popular print, banner and trade show conference specializing in soft signage, dye-sublimation and silk screen printing. Almost 50% of the companies were utilizing teardrop flags to portray a specific marketing message to their customers.

In some US states the teardrop flag has to be a maximum height of 8 feet and no taller than 8 feet. Its best to contact the conference center for regulations of proper signage. Even with customized canopy tents they must not be wider than 9 feet even though your allowed space is 8 feet wide. If its longer or wider than 9 feet the attendee must purchase a larger size space.

We spoke with most of the companies who were utilizing the teardrop flags and asked where they purchased them as the flag material was a perfect bright color, a perfect 90% bleed through reverse image and more. The company that most of the companies used was a local business name Inkdoodle.com. The price range for a customized 8 feet tear drop flag was in the range of $75.

We also ran into other conference center attendees that were using different kind of flags which were not dye sublimated but rather silk screen printed. You can tell the difference between a silk screen printed flag vs. a dye sublimated flag. For one a silk screen printed flag has colors that don’t pop or that aren’t vibrant. If your not familiar with silk screen printing picture a cheap t-shirt that you purchased at a flea market and after a couple of washes in the dryer the words or letters start to fade. With dye-sublimated flags the colors are heat fused into the material at a temperature range of 400 degrees. Making the colors pop and almost never fade after hundreds of washes.

Kudos to Inkdoodle and their team for displaying many of their advertising flags at the local trade show at the SGIA.
