AIR Flag | Interested?

Would you be interested in owning this?

Over the years we've had requests for various forums related gear, hats, shirts, etc and flags that can be flown while camping. This could be a great way to find other forum members in a sea of silver - sort of an extension of the AIR oval sticker.


The flag is 3' x 5' and made from Woven/500D Spun Polyester and suitable for outdoor use. This polyester is durable and has open weave reminiscent of vintage cotton flags. The open weave reduces fabric stress and is resistant to high winds. The flags would be printed (not sewn) and one sided although the ink bleed through is about 90 percent (highly visible from both sides although the AIR logo would read as RIA if seen from behind).

The colors on the flag are an homage to Airstream blue, Argosy orange and of course a little silver for good taste. We figure you don't need a full on silver flag - after all, it might compete with the trailer it's attached to

There are many ways to design a flag; this one is intended to be instantly recognized as "AIR" and is designed to go with your trailer. It's clean, sleek, slightly retro and with just a little future-forward feel; just like your Airstream. Cost on these flags is to be determined still based on the size of the order. Volume order = lower cost.

Please post up if you would be interested in purchasing one and/or if your purchase would be cost dependent - this is not a commitment to buy, just a metric to help us gauge interest and decide how many to order.

I would be if there were a 2x3 flag available. A 3x5 is too big for my setup. I would prefer a simpler design too. Just the AIR oval in white on a blue background or vice-versa, although a blue background wouldn't show the dirt as easily.

I would be interested but only if you don't change this initial design or size! Ed

a blue on white or white on blue is too much like the WBCCI flags.

Not currently. To print good quality flags at a fair price means no color or design variation and no size variation. We might consider other options at a later date, I suppose but for now we are only considering the flag in post 1.

Frankly, the last few times we've tried to get this going, the process turned into a mess. Everyone had an opinion and none agreed. There was no way to come to a solution that made everyone happy.

I volunteered to take this on and conscripted 2 graphics designers and the site team for input. Even with that limited group there ware many unique opinions.
This design over many offered the most acceptable combination of simple oval and design "flare" but I understand that it will not be to everyones taste.

We did have some design constraints. We wanted to avoid stepping on Airstream Incs toes by avoiding the word Airstream or trailer likenesses (besides a real life trailer is better than any flag rendering), we wanted to be sure that it would be recognizable from a distance and not easily confused with long standing clubs, there are also printing process limitations.

Once ordered they take about 2 weeks to arrive. You could be flying this one in August

I think possibly more folks may be interested if there was a ballpark guesstimate of cost. You may have a lot more takers at, say $20, than you would at $90.
Maybe make a goal of X flags to reach the target price, and let people know how close to the goal things are.

I second overlander63's suggestion. My personal interest would be greatly influenced by the estimated cost.
