    Any of these styles?

    http://www.cardealersflags.co.uk/cardealersflagsbannersizes.jpg

    I don't really know where to find these because I don't even know what they're called. I googled "car lot flags" and came across these which is exactly what I'm looking for. I have two car lots looking to get them done but I can't source them locally...

    Any ideas or links would be so appreciated!

    Neoplexonline.com for stock flags - custom will be a bunch more - I've used them a few times with good results all of the time. Flags are cheap - poles are more than the flags. They ship out of the midwest and Washington State.

    Those ARE pretty cheap for that type of system. Making you own frame and cheap banner, I bet you would have that much in it. My City has put in laws not letting these be used 100' from the street. You might want to check with the local inspector first, lots of places are outlawing the use of these, they are distracting to drivers, and have blown into the street causing problems.

    Mosh, do you use them? How much would I mark something like these down if they're allowed in my municipality?

    Stuff we buy pre-printed we add 30% plus any design work we do if it requires alot of work, not simple text of a logo they have ready to go. We only used them three times (great results) until, like I said our town outlawed them.

    I actually ended up quoting customers using these guys. How long did color in the flags last etc?
