I cut paper flags from vintage 1940s National Geographic maps to make these customizable mini banners. They're perfect for hanging on a chair back, along the top of a cork board, or across a small window. My son keeps one with his name hanging on his bedroom door. They also make sweet wedding decorations.
Each flag is 1" (2.5 cm) across and top to bottom and can be stamped in black with a name or your personal message, up to 12 characters long. (For longer messages, contact me or see this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/59671829/extra-long-personalized-mini-pennant ) Please note that this bunting is intended to be displayed with one side forward. The back of each pennant is plain paper.
* About a foot long (actual length depends on the message you supply)
* Each flag measures 1” across
* Stamped in black with a name or message up to 12 characters
* Strung on white cotton baker's twine
* Extra string on each end for hanging
**CARE OF YOUR MINI BANNER**
This banner should be displayed inside or outdoors on a dry day. Paper and water don't get along. Also, though this garland makes great nursery decor, please display it out of reach of small children.
**PACKAGING AND SHIPMENT**
I package my banners in a clear plastic sleeve, with a Palimpsestic label. All orders are shipped via USPS within 3-5 days.
If you need a particular length, different string color options, or more strands than I have listed, let me know. There's a lot I can do to make this decoration just right for you, so please don't hesitate to convo me using the "Contact" link on the right.
**A NOTE ABOUT MY MAPS**
I rely on the serendipity of thrift stores and garage sales for most of my maps. When I'm looking for a specific map, I purchase the lowest condition copy available from a dealer. I never use new or collectible-quality materials in my map banners or garland.
