How to Find the Right Design for a Flag Banner


Small business owners need to be seen, but often think, “I only want something simple”.


Now consider speed of traffic and the brief recognition time for a “simple” marker to be seen.  And, not only seen, but also be readable.


Here’s where we can turn “simple” into something punchy & brilliant.


Two local businesses had major messages to showcase to passing traffic, and with OzFeathers’ spark of WOW! this pair of eye-catching feather banners presented solutions.


Excitement creates curiosity in the viewer.


From Willunga Physiotherapy at Aldinga, “…just put up our feather.  The hands move with the wind!!  Love it.”



And why not?  These Physios use their hands to manipulate aching joints, so where a static sign might say “we’re here”, this brilliantly waving banner EXPLAINS how soothing these specialists’ hands will be.

“My, what BIG hands you have!!”


Myponga’s Smiling Samoyed Brewery, which is set back off the main street, could easily be missed without something bright and active to stop traffic in its tracks.


Time to show creative edge by featuring their in-house brewery expert, Hoppy the real “Smiling Samoyed”.  At this size, Hoppy – with his eagerly lolling tongue – looks extremely inviting.

“I’m Hoppy and I’m big, white & fluffy… want to sample my beer?”


Who doesn’t enjoy a craft-brewed beverage?  Hoppy waves at visitors, drawing you into his den, knowing you’re going to love your visit.


Both of these are Linda Sanders’ designs, and she tells us she focuses on attracting attention at distance.  “Every feather banner is a waving flag, shouting, “come over here!” giving drivers time to slow down and into YOUR carpark” she says.


Working with punchy, powerful (often singular) messages, there’s no doubt that this advertising format is excellent value for money.


Keep It Simple Stupid – K.I.S.S.


Either in the caring hands of the Physio or under the watchful eye of a furry Samoyed, all proving that “simple” can also be fantastically brilliant.


Do you need TO BE SEEN?

COUNTDOWN TO POLAND 2019 – Flag Banners Display by SA Artists


Being invited to participate as the Australian representatives at the 9th Leba International Kite Festival Poland, OzFeathers will definitely be adding some Down Under sparkle!


Feather flag banners are predominantly known in South Australia as “business / street advertising”, and can be found waving at oncoming traffic outside small to medium-sized business enterprises.  They work as the “LOOK OVER HERE!” attraction to passing traffic.

Feather Banners Poland

Willunga South Australia to Poland – fabric artists on show.


To have the chance to display some of our unique Australian-focus fabric banner art is quite an honour, and we’re counting down the days, until the weekend of 30th August 2019.




This international kite festival ranks HIGH in northern Europe, with kite and fabric artists invited from all around the globe. Australia might just be the furthest point from the event’s location, so we’ll pack as much as we can to wow! audiences with our unique and bright designs, showcasing our Aussie-ness with pride.




Back in the Willunga workshop, each OzFeather flag is custom-designed to suit the necessary theme, then precision-cut using a heat-seal tool to ensure maximum lifespan.


Pre-dyed flag-nylon fabric is used in all our feather banners for its proven high-level durability in the Australian sun.  Dyes outlast inks in the main, with some banners still working at 7 years.


The creation of each new design involves hand-working the images to their sewable state, with all the coloured pieces firmly sewn together to produce Australia’s ONLY all-applique advertising.


These waving ads. immediately turn a hard-to-see location into a STAND OUT address, which is where ALL businesses want their new customers to be.

Some of the art designs we’ll be packing for Poland will include examples of our amazing bird life, maybe some stunning scenery (as seen at the IGA Coolum Kite Festival, QLD), and definitely the odd quirky theme or two.  Everything that’s needed to let families know that Australians are a likeable lot.


We’ve heard many names for banner flags since we first introduced our feather designs to SA in 1998, e.g. “tall flaggy things”, “teardrop flags”, and the ubiquitous “Bali flags”, but our own name, OzFeathers, was carefully selected as it connects two very important factors; our feather-shaped all-sewn banners are 100% made in Australia, and more exactly, in Willunga S.A.



Since our humble beginnings in 1998 we’ve designed for, and shipped to, customers in England, France, USA, Canada, Tahiti, Thailand, Malaysia, New Zealand – not bad for a family business based in Willunga!


Easy to find us too – Ph 08 8556 2681, or email.

Gallery designs compared

Which style of Art Gallery are YOU?

When you worry about being seen, but say, “I want something simple”, our designer knows how to turn ORDINARILY PLAIN into SUPER PUNCHY & BRILLIANT!


These messages at left both say “Gallery”, but only one has that added spark of WOW! – Excitement which creates curiosity in the viewer.


Which should you choose?


Are you hidden or set back from the street?
Does your competition overshadow your building?
Is it time to let your creative edge shine?


Linda Sanders creates all her feather banner layouts to attract attention at distance.  Every one is a fully-waving flag screaming, “come over here!” giving drivers plenty of time to slow down, to park in YOUR car park.


Advertising needs to be kept fresh to stay relevant.


Have you ever needed to find an address – while handling heavy traffic – then accidentally missed the turn-in driveway?  With just one of Linda’s punchy designs, this problem would disappear, as with this Gallery customer’s dilemma.


Linda’s “LOOK, I’M HERE!” banners feature up to 4 key words – although a single, powerful message definitely has the biggest effect.


The text is then large enough to be seen at 500 metres (that’s half a km.), it will wave oh-so-appealingly to show your exact location, and feature leap-at-you colours just as Linda’s recommended colour schemes invariably are.
