About Us Banner-1




In 1971, Howard Furst's journey began when he perceived the need for consistent retail signage while crafting displays for his father's business. This realization propelled him to establish AAA Flag & Banner, initially operating from his garage. Rapid success led to a prominent retail location on Pico Boulevard in LA, where he pioneered the concept of a "supermarket" for signs. Notably, his strategic prowess shone through when he secured a pivotal contract for the 1984 Olympics, effectively associating pole banners with the essence of Los Angeles.

Transitioning into the digital age, second-generation leader Craig Furst, Howard's son, recognized the imperative to remain at the forefront of printing technology. By embracing innovation, the company streamlined processes, optimized efficiency, and extended more cost-effective solutions to clients. This shift facilitated an expansion into tailored projects with swiffer turnarounds, leading to the strategic closure of retail stores in favor of focusing on comprehensive services for major clients and expansive ventures.

Over half a century, AAA Flag & Banner has etched its presence into some of the world's most monumental events, including multiple Olympic Games, Super Bowls, and Presidential Inaugurations. Their portfolio also spans across the realms of sports, entertainment, film, television, and iconic attractions. Holding a roster of renowned clientele ranging from sports franchises to Fortune 500 giants and Hollywood studios, the company has evolved into A3 Visual, catering to diverse needs encompassing sports, entertainment, retail, trade shows, corporate initiatives, and special occasions.


Our new identity as A3 Visual reflects our unique technology—along with enhanced products and services—allowing for diversity and greater value for our customers.

A3 Visual is more than just a change in our name. It’s a commitment to the future of this company—to grow and innovate for the next 50 years.
