Whether it’s a product launch or a personal celebration, custom flags can turn any event into a memorable experience. If you are considering using custom flags for your event, here are six strategies to make the most of this versatile visual solution.
Welcome Custom Flags
If you want to get your event off to an impressive start, look no further than welcome custom flags.
Simply put, a welcome custom flag is any type of flag placed at the entrance of the venue where your event takes place. This type of flag lets attendees know that they are at the right place and makes it easier for them to spot the main entrance points.
We know it: events can take place in many different places, with space configurations that can be radically different. The good news is that you have many types of custom flags available so you can use the one that best fits your venue:
- Feather flag
- Teardrop flag
- Angled flag
- Rectangle flag
- Pole flag
- Custom shapes
Wayfinding Custom Flags
Custom flags are an original way to help attendees navigate the physical space where your event takes place.
This is the ideal solution for outdoor events (such as festivals and concerts) that occur in vast spaces that can be confusing without clear directional signage. Remember that in this type of event there are no walls where to place a sign, so a self-standing alternative is needed.
For indoor events, flags are an original wayfinding alternative to conventional signs. In this case, repositionable flags provide a key advantage: they can be placed in the spots that ensure maximum visibility so that they capture the attention of attendees more effectively.
Whether used indoors or outdoors, wayfinding custom flags offer some interesting benefits to event organizers:
- Easy to install and remove
- Some models can be repositioned as needed
- Low maintenance
Decorative Custom Flags
The success of your event depends on two types of factors. On the logistics side, your events must be well-organized and easy to navigate. On the other side, the emotional side, your event must also offer a welcoming and exciting atmosphere.
What makes custom flags so useful is that they can help you with both sides of your event.
On the one hand, they are a versatile signage solution. On the other hand, flags are also a high-impact decorative element that can help you create the right atmosphere for your event.
For example, try to think of those high-profile events where heads of state meet to discuss important matters. What do you envision? Probably rows of flags waving in the wind, signaling the importance of the meeting. Flags can help you convey this same sense of sophistication and glamour, among many other things!
Custom Flags as Part of Your Social Media Zone
Social media zones have become a major trend in event planning, and with good reason. Part of offering a great attendee experience means making it easy for people to document and share the fun they had at your event.
A social media zone is an area where people find everything they need to snap an original photo or record a fun, short video.
Some of the visual elements you may want to place in your social media zone include:
- Step and repeat banners
- Photo stand-ins
- Custom flags
- Wall graphics
- Floor graphics / Floor stickers
Custom Flags for Outdoor Advertising
Custom flags also offer help on the marketing front when you need to advertise your event.
Place flags strategically around the perimeter of the venue where your event takes place to attract passersby and provide general information such as the dates for your event, sponsors, or entrance fees.
Custom flags are cheaper compared to other out-of-home advertising alternatives, such as billboards or street furniture. Additionally, they require little maintenance and are easy to reposition according to your needs.
Flags are also durable: they are made with sturdy materials using cutting-edge digital printing which keeps your graphics crisp and vibrant event under extreme weather conditions.
Custom Flags for Parking Areas
Organizing a successful event means taking care of every detail, especially those that most event organizers overlook.
Parking areas are one of those details. When you think about it, this is an essential component of the success of any event. As the first area attendees explore, parking lots offer many opportunities to make a positive impression or even surprise your audience.
Custom flags can be used to improve wayfinding within the parking area itself. You can also use them to convey a welcome message or to relay important information people need to know before entering the event, such as dress code or opening times.
Custom Flags for Events: Wrapping It Up
If you are organizing an event, you should give some serious consideration to custom flags.
This is an original, cost-effective, and versatile visual solution that can enrich your event in many ways without straining your budget.
For example, one advantage of movable flags is that when you need to add some visual interest to a certain area (for example, during a red-carpet walk), you can place your flags there and then move them to other areas as needed.
Custom flags come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. A knowledgeable designer can help you find the combination that best suits your communication needs.
