The Waitangi events showed a level of class in the event signage, with the Buff wind blade and finish arch. Reminded me how tatty my club (and shop) signage is.

The wind blade (fibreglass bendy pole with tall thin flag that slips over it) looks modern and I think may be more practical than rectangular banners with ropes that need suitable trees. Been checking out bespoke prices and they are fairly costly. But I see that Flagz in Pakuranga do standard one-colour designs with the words Cafe, Open, Sale etc. for $225 incl ground spike or waterbase. Strikes me that there should be a demand for "Start" and "Finish" amongst many sports. Before I talk to them about it, anyone like to visit them and check out the quality of these things?

I have a contact here in Rotorua who prints these types of flags and the street banners we have in Rotorua advertising upcoming events. I am sure he would be keen to talk with you about what you would like. I have emailed him files and had it printed up with a very satisfactory result. Not sure if he will source the base but I'm sure he can put you on to the right person. Emmanuel Print Limited 88 Pururu St Rotorua

I have been thinking for a few months now that this would be an ideal role for someone (partly paid) for the NZOF in development.

Sourcing cool looking orienteering signs
Sourcing cool looking orienteering flags, club flags etc
Sourcing funding from gaming trusts for maps and sportident etc

Flagmakers here in Welly also do the bendy ones.

This is the company that made the rectangular flags for a lot of clubs.

Simon, there is already a contract position available for someone to do jobs like this in the current NZOF Vacancies.

Been into Flagmakers Alan. They don't have any stock ones. And the price for a one-off looks like being around $800 depending on the base fittings. Flagz stock ones are $225 small $275 big I think. So I need to figure out if we are comparing like with like. Only then can we proceed to persuade Flagz that there would be enough demand to add "Start" and "Finish" to their stock ones.

I had some OPC flags (the big ones) made up by FLAGZ last year and the quality is excellent. Simple to set up and it is worth getting both the stakes (for in the ground) and the bases (that can be filled with water) for concrete and indoor setups.

We made a couple of custom flags using Flagz a couple of years ago and found them to be fantastic, the finished product was and still is great too. The cost was about $700 , however we negotiated a deal with one of our suppliers by using some of their artwork and logo, this way we got a second flag free effectively making each flag $350. They are quite big!
You can put whatever artwork you want on using tif and pdf files.
