OzFeather Package: “Snake Eye” Feather Set

This series of 9’3″ tall banners featuring a snake-eye motif originated from Facebook kite friends Guy Reynolds (UK) and Christian Baden Powell (Germany).
Guy had drawn the design and Christian had made the Rokkaku kite.  I found the strength of the colours extremely powerful and so, with their “okay”, this one-of-a-kind series was created specifically to be offered to AKA members for this monthly raffle.
I started with a .jpg image of the snake-eye, then produced a Vector graphic which was a perfect fit for three banner widths.
I had to make them!
The Eye made me do it…
Technical specs. – 9’3″ x 2’6″ per banner (will fit all 10′ poles), set of three made from 200 denier SolarMax flag nylon, with UV-inhibitor coating to resist fading, mould resistant, quiet in the wind, and brightest pre-dyed colours.  Complete with 1000D Cordura top cap reinforcing, and lower-edge bungee for securing to any pole system.  Please note again – this package does NOT include poles.
