I bought an Easter flag on line a few months ago to hang for the Easter weekend. When I buy flags I usually make sure that they are double sided and read correctly from both sides. I hate when they don’t read correctly on both sides and if they don’t read correctly I do not buy them.
I thought that I had checked it when I received it. I must have either looked at it wrong or I didn’t check it at all. When I put it up this past weekend I was so upset to discover that it did not read correctly, I was cussing myself for not noticing this sooner.
I went ahead and flew it for this Easter but will need to look for another one for next year, that I will be happy with. But I have to wonder why the flag manufactures would make flags this way? Who would want to fly a flag that does not read correctly on one side?
When you fly a flag you want people to be able to view and read the flag no matter which side of the flag they are viewing it from. Who wants to read it backwards. I have been told that maybe it is cheaper to make them this way but I don’t believe that either.
Hopefully I will not make this mistake again and you won’t have to read my rants of unreadable flags.
Saw your recent post about flags that read correctly. Try shopping at http://www.flagsonastick.com. All flags that read correctly on both sides are identified by the text “2-sided message”. When you click on the image, you will also see our 2-sided message symbol in the upper left corner of the flag. Click on the Product Description tab to read more details about the flag, including the dimensions and the artist who created the flag.
