Integration: Banners and flags provide colorful and economical ways to dress up a building or boulevard. They can integrate parts of a shopping district attractively and inexpensively. Seasonal decorating, special events and everyday activities provide opportunities for decorating with fabric.
Color: Brightly colored fabrics don't have to be printed with advertisements to catch an eye and "sell" a business service. A striking color leaves a strong impression.
Movement: The movement of banners and flags is a major advantage over fixed billboards and signs. When something moves, the eye is inevitably drawn to it.
Variety: Frequent changes in familiar settings attract attention. Since banners and flags are relatively easy to mount and remove, whole new looks can evolve from simply changing colors.
Function: Fabric pieces can enhance a variety of locations and are available in many formats for installation across streets, on light poles, on buildings and on flagpoles. They can be one- or two-sided, mounted with rope or cable and come in any shape or size.
