Default Advice on displaying pennants

Hi all,

To those of you who collect and display pennants...how are you displaying them? Right now I've got a bunch of the hard plastic sleeves, but they look cheesy to me. Custom framing is a little pricey.

Has anyone come up with an economical but good-looking option for displaying? I love my pennants, but this is such a pain, I'm thinking about scaling them back.

I don't think framing is worth the money unless it is an oversized or big ticket item. I think the hard top loaders display and protect pennants well. Some people (including myself) will use very small nails to mount the top loader on the wall. I think this works great and doesn't look bad. I generally steer clear or things that look cheesy, but the too loader is clear, cheap, and doesn't take away from the item being displayed. I think a no brainer for pennants that fit.

I loaded them into a top loader and then used Velcro (Hook and Loop for you prior military folks) disks to attach them to the wall. It allowed me to easily change the pennants with very little work, didn't put a hole in the wall or your toploader, and looked nice. You can strategically place the disks so you don't see them when displayed.

^^^ my way is similar, but mine can't be "swung out" because they have two points of attachment. I can unclip them if needed. How about a closer look at your system? Are you using something similar to this?

Default portable clothes rack and hanger clips

Yes, our approach is very similar. Very easy to detach and move pennants. Found the hanger clips on ebay.

Default Top loader display

Here is an example from a previous home of the setup I talked about earlier. The pennant in the middle-top is fixed to the wall with that method. It stayed up there for over a year and never sagged or fell.

Thanks guys...Rob, your way looks like a possibility for me. What are you using to hang them, exactly?

I don't have any of my pennants displayed at present, but I used to rig up a way of displaying some of them vertically, pointed down, using standard wire hangers. Basically, you snip the angled parts of the hanger near the hook, straighten out the wire, slip the wire between the stitching in the colored strip running down the left side of the pennant, and the straight part of the hangar is then bent at angles (not unlike the triangular shape of the original hangar) on either side of the pennant, with the two bent pieces meeting behind the pennant, with that part then being taped or tacked to the wall, pointing down and hidden from view. I don't have an example to photograph and post here, but I got pretty good at making them so that you could barely see any of the wire at either end of the pennant. Hope this description makes sense.

As for using the hanger material, I think there may be some risk that it could react with dye in the pennant to discolor the pennant, but I didn't experience that for the year or two that I employed this method. I'm sure you could adapt this idea, using some other generally rigid but bendable material that would not pose such a risk.
