Custom Banners and Flags Make Advertising More Affordable

custom flags and bannersHave you tried everything to get more customers into your store?  Well, if you’re still using newspapers, direct mail or electronic media, your ad may be competing for attention with the hundreds of other messages.  Maybe it’s time to look at something that has worked for hundreds of years – custom banners and flags.  Custom flags can be made to order in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colors, but it’s important to get it right because you will use these banners repeatedly for years.

Promotional Banners And Flags – Are They More Effective than Digital Banners?

promotional banners and flagsIf you spend a lot of time on the Internet, you are already familiar with digital banners; those annoying square or rectangular ads that show up on the right side of your screen.  While many of these banners are targeted directly to you, based on your Internet search habits, very few people actually click on them. Conversely, the promotional banners and flags we see while we’re out driving around are usually noticed.  Because they are unique and three dimensional, they rarely become part of the scenery.
