Each individually-crafted banner is assembled to be tough, and to withstand wind. Every fabric piece is first heat-sealed then set into the base fabric, ready to be firmly over-sewn.
This technique is similar to the age-old tradition still used to create lead-light windows.
First we cut each coloured piece, heat-weld them all into position, and the “fixing” is done with the sewn stitch known as zig-zag, guaranteeing an extra strong bond.
Only OzFeathers’ nylon flag material offers UV-inhibitor coating, guaranteed to slow down the ageing effect of Australian sunshine.
Working with dyes at the milling stage ensures that every colour glows in sunshine with 100% concentration from both sides of the feather banner.
No-one starts a business to be small, translating to “Be seen, or be passed over!”
Nothing is small at OzFeathers! – no chance of traffic driving by without noticing you’re open. Every message jumps. Font size is “headline” proportions. No need to fret about being too small to be seen.
The waving feathery-edge is OzFeathers’ BONUS feature, for those days when not much else is moving at all. Just a whiff of a breeze, and this fabric has the perfect weight balance to produce enticing, rhythmic waving.
Crafted, not mass-produced.
Trust and personal service count for much these days.
At OzFeathers, your designer listens to your needs and combines marketing know-how with fabric expertise, and offers speedy discussion via email, 24/7. This hands-on approach helps maintain one-on-one comfort, which can be so often lacking from the mass-produced manufacturer.
MORE Traffic stops!
Results have shown an increase in the success rate from employing an OzFeathers feather banner to advertise a location – a definitive upswing in traffic numbers actually stopping to visit.
The market is there to be CAPTURED!
Don’t let it pass you by every day without knowing you’re waiting.
Advertising challenge – How to utilise a sunny, blue sky as advertising for your next public event, you wonder?
Easy! OzFeathers’ team will fill it with large and colourful kites.
Go ahead and splash bright colours from ground-level all the way to 91 metres* high.
Result is the LARGEST ad. campaign imaginable, guaranteed to draw in crowds from many kilometres around. It’s all about “Curiosity killed the cat”, right?
(*Australian Civil Aviation regulations state that you must not fly a kite more than 91 metres (300′) above ground level or within 4 kilometres (3 miles) of an airfield.)
Kite displays are a super-efficient (yet wacky enough) way to attract far more attention than standard newspaper ads. or short-burst Radio announcements. And, with more and more houses now boasting “NO JUNK MAIL” stickers, you can’t even use letterbox drops to promote yourselves.
But, imagine driving in the car and catching sight of something speck-shaped in the sky ahead. Not just one speck, but lots. If it’s not a mass of UFO’s, what could the sky be filled with? You’d decide to investigate, right?
These large scale kites, flying at such height, flash both colour and movement. Some have sweeping tails, others have inflatable bodies. Nothing like the toys of old!
All shapes & sizes – sea creatures, school of angel fish, a whale, owls, some road signs, a crab or two and a multitude of waving, coloured streamers. Keep driving nearer, and there’ll also be a sea of artistic colour at ground level from the installation of 5 metre feather banners, waving their magic.
“Oooh, let’s go and have a look!!”
Hurrah! An advertising success!
Kites never fail to attract an eager audience to a festival or outdoor concert.
Country Field Days swear by the crowd-pulling power that kite and flag displays have. Visitors will even drive 100kms to be there!
ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITY – OzFeathers’ team of kite & feather banner wranglers await your call, and, for much less cost than a 30 second TV ad., or Radio announcements you’ll reach that target market much, much easier.
Plus, kites are FUN!! – guaranteed to light up everyone’s sky, ages 2 to 92.
“Fully-sewn appliqué”… or… “Full-colour dye-sublimation”?
Appliquéd (fully-sewn) feather banners are the ONLY banners to use pre-dyed fabric. These dyed colours are consistently 100% BOTH sides, always, and comparatively slower to fade.
Slower fading translates to longer lifespan saving on advertising dollars; more cha-ching! for you as business owner.
To give our feather banners long-life, we sew using only 200 denier “SolarMax” flag nylon. This heavy duty fabric is coloured during the weaving process (not printed with inks as an afterthought), meaning colours will not change or lose brightness when caught in the rain.
The addition of a special UV-inhibitor coating to the fibres offers exceptional fade-resisting properties, allowing colours to remain richer for longer.
Strongly-sewn appliqué seams, fade-resistant colours, and extra cha-ching! with 3 square metres of valuable advertising space = must be OzFeathers’ feather banners!
Production time can be as little as 4 days – for when a HURRY UP is needed – or, your hand-crafted feather designs can be ready within 10 days, standard.
There’s still plenty of time to have your advertising ready for the Christmas shoppers, but they need to SEE you, first!
1. Where are they made and is after-sales service available?
2. Can we get spare parts and repairs done locally?
3. Is your fabric brighter, bolder and thicker?
Imported flag banners’ material is thin. Only 50 denier. Often best suited to short term advertising, and NOT the OzFeathers’ focus.
OzFeathers feather banners are made right here using long-life 200 denier fabric. That’s four times thicker and stronger, and with a working lifespan of up to 3 years, weather dependent.
Our trademark **hot-cut, hot-weld and sew** process (also shown below) makes these feather banners the absolute toughest available for Australian weather conditions.
Why are OzFeathers always brighter?
This 200 denier fabric is pre-dyed and colour-fast. Absolutely no chance of colours running when it rains.
Being local – and Sanders’ family-owned – you talk to the people who run the business, and who know the importance of “I need it NOW!”
How long do flag banners last? – actually translates to, “How long will my advertising work for me?”
Answer? = definitely 8 hours every day, in wind & rain, no sick days, no holidays, and without complaint! Simply consider your waving banner as an unpaid employee – it can often be your hardest worker.
CONCLUSION – The saying “you have to speculate to accumulate” simply means “invest in the toughest, brightest and boldest OzFeathers feather banners and by Day 400, 500 or even 1000 your advertising will still be working hard”.
