An idea invented to promote TV and radio stations when microphones are seen in shot in news footage. The flag consists of a low-reflection black or white inverted square or triangular “cup”, with a circular hole in it. It is filled with foam (similar to that used on windshields) with a hole cut through it. It slides up the shaft of the microphone, and the foam holds it at the base of the head of the mic. The station logo is screen printed onto each of the four or three faces in colour. The background colour may either be the moulded plastic with its low-reflection textured surface, or can be sprayed any other colour prior to printing.
Flags are also available unprinted (complete with foam parts) for users who wish to arrange their own printing. They are also suitable for users who only require a very small number and do not justify the minimum quantity needed for screen printing – adhesive logo stickers could be used in these cases.
Three foam blocks are supplied with each flag, with 15, 19 and 23mm holes, to cover most sizes of microphone. A 33mm sized hole foam block is also available separately, for use on oversized microphones such as Sennheiser radio mics, and should be ordered as required.
Orders for printed flags can only be accepted in writing or via email to the Sales Department. Artwork to be supplied in vector formats EPS, .AI or a TIF file, and where possible Pantone references.. Due to the nature of the screen printing process it may not be possible to satisfactorily reproduce fine details such as gradients and shading, in these cases an alternative transfer printing method can be quoted for upon request. Canford reserves the right to refuse to produce products from unsatisfactory artwork. Minimum order 10 pieces. Delivery normally 10-14 days from receipt of artwork.
