Feather flags are a great way to advertise your business. Whether you have a special sale going on or you just want to draw in more customers, a feather flag could be just what you need. There are plenty of premade flags you can choose from. But, if you want to stand out from the crowd, you can design your own. Here are a few tips for amateur flag designers.
The first thing you need to do when designing a flag is figure out the color scheme. If the flag looks too busy, nobody will want to look at it for long enough to see what it says. If it’s too dull, it might go completely unnoticed. Limit yourself to two or three eye-catching colors and you should be fine. Try picking colors that you want to be associated with your business. If you have a logo, using its colors should be perfect. Or, you can play around with other color schemes. The primary colors red, blue, and yellow usually work well. So does white. Trust your eyes. If it looks too busy or the colors don’t contrast well enough, go back to the drawing board.
Text, Not Pictures
Advertising flags are different than other flags. When designing flags, you usually want to use pictures and avoid words. When it comes to advertising flags, you should do the opposite. Your flag needs to tell potential consumers why it’s there. It needs to be informing them of the sale or great deal that awaits them if they stop by. Usually, pictures are a great idea. People love pictures. But, there’s not enough room on a feather flag to fit the text you need and a picture. You have to keep it simple.
Snagging the attention of people passing by is an extremely effective way to advertise. Seeing the promise of a sale or other great deal out of the blue will force them to make an impulse decision. And, once you have them at their place of business they’ll be open to buying, even if they swore they were just going to look but not buy. But, this can’t happen without something to catch their eye. A feather flag fluttering in the wind is a good way to catch people’s eyes. But, for it to be effective you have to have a well-designed flag. You could always buy a premade one but making your own unique flag helps it stand out from the crowd.
