If you are in the market for a custom feather flag, one of the first things you will need to decide is whether it should be single sided or double sided. People typically assume that all flags are double sided, which simply is not the case. If this sounds like you, read on to learn the difference.

Single Sided Feather Flags
As the name suggests, single sided flags are printed on one side, leaving the other side blank. However, the reverse side of the sign is usually somewhat transparent such that the printed side is still visible. These types of flags are ideal for situations where visibility is required, such as roadside advertisements. A well-placed feather flag with minimal printing can go a long way, and having the other side remain transparent is more of an advantage than a detriment, as it will be visible to commuters in both directions.

Double Sided Feather Flags
Double sided feather flags are comprised of two flags that have been sewn together, usually with a blocker in-between. The most obvious use for double sided flags is to have two different graphics on each side, though they can also be printed with the same image on each side. In the case of the latter, the blocker would reduce distortion between the two images.

Double sided flags are perfect for relaying information, indoor and outdoor use, and are a great means of conveying intricate information about your services.

Which Feather Flag Option Is Right For Me?
Despite any preconceived notions, most banner flags are single sided. However, that doesn’t mean a single sided flag is suitable for your purposes. Before finalizing a purchase, consider how you intend to use the flag. Are you trying to draw attention or convey a message? How many words do you need on your flag? Are you using the flag indoors or outdoors? Are you using the flag on the side of the road, at a booth, or somewhere else? Answering all of these questions will help you determine which option is right for you.
