Are feather banner and flag banner the same thing? What about teardrop banners? Custom flags?
Before anything else let’s clear up the confusion that may exist around the different phrases used for this and similar banner types. The terms “feather banner” and “flag banner” or even “feather flag banner” are all interchangeable. The use of these terms is usually dictated by who is speaking and their preference or habit of calling them one or the other. In terms of functionality, pricing, etc. these terms all mean the same to us. For simplicity sake we just use “feather flag”.
There is a difference between other types of banners that we offer and you can learn more about these on their respective product pages: teardrop flags, (closest to feather flags but slightly different shape), standard banners, fabric banners, and retractable banners.
The differences between the two most similar flag options that can be quickly noted are that the feather flag we offer is a little more free flowing than the teardrop flag which is more taut and stretched out when secured to its flagpole. Further, the design surface area of the feather flag is also larger than the teardrop of a similar size.
What material is your feather flag made out of?
The feather flag is made from a lightweight, 3.39 oz. polyester material. This material, which has a plastic-like property, allows for flexibility and durability of the product. The flagpole is made from a lightweight aluminum, which adds to the versatility of this unique banner.
What is the lifespan of your feather banner?
Assuming proper care and storing, the banner will last 2+ years. Exposure to the sun or harsh elements may diminish the quality of the banner faster than if the banner was placed away from those conditions. Please see below for a more detailed look at how the element may affect your banner.
What other materials do you offer? Will exposure to sun fade the banner?
If the banner is placed in direct sunlight, the banner will end up fading over time. Though, this will require a prolonged period of direct sunlight. In almost all cases this shouldn’t be a concern over the short or medium term.
If I print my banner in more than one color am I charged more?
We print all of our banners in full color, which means that no matter how many colors you choose to include in your design, it will not increase the cost of your order. Design services are also free of charge if you are needing free design help. The things that will impact your final cost will be the size you select, the quantity, the type of stand, any applicable tax and shipping.
How do I assemble my feather flag?
Assembling the feather flag is straightforward. When assembling the flag, take the largest pole, which will be the bottom of the finished flagpole, and insert the second largest pole into the end with the silver tip. Continue placing poles in decreasing size until you place the smallest pole, the one with the small knob at the end. This will be the top of your completed flagpole. Now you’re ready to place the flag onto the pole by sliding the pole through the bottom pocket of the flag. Make sure you take your time sliding the pole through the pocket to avoid possible stretching or tearing of the material or unwanted bending of the pole.
Once the flag material is attached to the pole, it’s time to insert it into either the ground stake or one of the available base options. After inserting the pole into the stake or base, take the small cord from the flagpole and thread it through the small loop at the bottom of the flag material. Now that the cord is through the loop, insert the cord into the metal ring at the bottom of the flagpole. Tie a knot, securing your flag and pole together. Now you’re ready to place your assembled flag either in or on the ground.
Acrylic Sign Questions
What is acrylic? Is it glass? Plexiglass? Are acrylic signs the same thing as Plexiglass signs?
Acrylic is not glass but a hard plastic. While it is a lightweight yet durable sign, it is not shatterproof. Acrylic signs are generally used indoors but can be used outside as well. Acrylic or polyacrylate (a type of plastic) is simply the type of the material itself. Different brands including Plexiglas, Perspex and Lucite are all in fact acrylic but carry their own brand name. Thus, acrylic (signs) is the same thing as plexiglass (signs). There are some types of acrylic which are different including Lexan. Lexan (a polycarbonate) is used as bullet-proof glass.
How thick is your acrylic? Do you offer different thickness options?
Our acrylic signs are .125” or approximately 3 mm thick, 6mm (1/4” or .25”), and 3/16”. Please contact us for a quote and any additional help needed to order these signs. The thicker acrylic signs are heavier and more durable, but also more expensive.
Are standoffs included with my acrylic signs?
We provide standoffs for your custom acrylic signs as an additional option. Typical standoffs themselves are .5” in diameter and 3/4” in length.
Do you offer polished edges for your acrylic signs?
Yes. Our acrylic signs can have polished edges so long as they are under 48″.
What can the acrylic signs be used for?

The most common uses include internal signs in office settings including room plaque and number signs, receptionist areas, building directories, etc. Acrylic signs are also often used for exterior purposes including business signage in commercial business parks and entrance signs.
