It's that time of the year again we have all been waiting for, sunny days, hot weather, crawfish, beaches, BBQ's, suntans, daylight savings, snow cones, road trips, and relaxation. Should I keep going? While some people get off early on Fridays to kick off the weekend sooner, someone is always at Gardner and Martin until 5:00 to make sure that Friday afternoon rush of people are able to pick up their flags and have them flying high for the weekend.
Along with many other things in this world, flags have options too. Flags differ in terms of sizes, materials and header finishes. Believe it or not buying a flag can be pretty confusing, almost as confusing as buying a coffee at Starbucks, would you like whipped cream? Whole milk or 2%? Grande or Venti? Ok so I exaggerated a little bit, it's not THAT confusing but nine times out of ten people are indecisive about which material they should purchase which is why I have described the differences below. Nylon? Polyester? Decisions, decisions!
Nylon flags are the most versatile flags available. The combination of beauty, color, and its quick drying ability make it suitable for a wide range of applications. Our nylon flags are light weight and reinforced with a close lock stitch enabling them to fly in the slightest breeze. We consider nylon the “summer flag.”
Polyester flags are specifically designed for areas where chemical pollutants or severe weather conditions are present. The high strength and low moisture absorption enable it to be the best wearing flag today. We consider Polyester the “winter flag.”
