Their large size and vibrant colours make them hard to miss. The main benefit of teardrop flags is height, which delivers the message above the confusion of ground level. Perhaps most commonly seen in car yards where the benefits of these outdoor flags are obvious.
What is a teardrop banner?
Teardrop flags are also known as banner flags, sail signs, beach banners, wind flags or advertising flags. They get their name from the teardrop shape. The shape is created by sewing a polyester teardrop shape with a pole pocket on the edge. The flag is inserted over a high=quality fibreglass pole and pulled in shape with strings that are fastened to a holding sleeve. This keeps the banner permanently tensioned and creates an interesting shape.
