Selected for Their High Standard of Environmental Commitment and Best-In-Class Graphic Imaging, AAA Flag & Banner Produced Event Materials for the World Premier Sail Racing Competition.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

America's Cup, the world premier sail racing competition, selected AAA Flag & Banner for event materials, due to their environmentally friendly products. Organizers chose to hold themselves to strict environmental responsibility by selecting all eco-friendly companies to provide services, one of the first large-scale events in U.S. history to do so. The 34th America's Cup World Series was held during August and October, for the first time in San Francisco Bay.

This international contest boasts a tradition, dating back to 1851, and claims to be the most difficult trophy in this sport to win. The second season of America's Cup World Series was held from August 21-26, and October 2-7 in scenic San Francisco Bay. Competing boats from around the world passed under the famous Golden Gate Bridge and in front of Alcatraz Island. Everything from yacht graphics to custom banners was produced by AAA Flag & Banner.

Organizers of America's Cup were determined to find an eco-friendly provider with the highest quality graphic imaging using a thorough vetting process. To accomplish this, America's Cup drafted a sustainability plan for all aspects of their 34th event. AAA Flag & Banner was chosen not only for their environmental offerings, but for price and reputation, as well. AAA Flag & Banner, one of the largest graphics production and installation companies in the nation, has provided services in the Bay Area for over 20 years.

AAA Flag & Banner was contracted for items including outdoor signage displays, tent top graphics, bleacher banners and flags, yacht graphics, pole banners, retail point-of-purchase graphics, and directional signage. All graphics were produced on sustainable products such as burlap, Incycle, Tyvek, Ecotex, and more. All eco-friendly fabrics and rigid materials offered by AAA Flag & Banner uphold strict ideals, such as production under stringent OEKO-TEX environmental standards and recycling options. Incycle, for instance, comes from recycled water bottles, poses as an alternative to styrene, and can be recycled again after use. All of these materials live up to AAA Flag & Banner's commitment to sustain and protect the environment.

A spokesman for America's Cup indicated that they were impressed with their interaction with AAA Flag & Banner and the services they were provided. "We were amazed by AAA's performance and quality under very tight timelines," they reported. Organizers were also impressed by the sign company's ability to transform "open public spaces to create a true branded venue experience," they stated. AAA Flag & Banner specializes in doing just that. From little-league games to international venues, they strive to create a memorable visual impact--without impacting the environment.
