Religious Hand Fans

Religious hand fans are popular in houses of worship of all kinds throughout the world. They can be produced in either stock or custom shapes, and can be custom printed with your choice of religious or secular icons. They're perfect for keeping congregation members comfortably cool at outdoor events such as church homecomings and weddings.

Our Religious Hand Fans and Church Hand Fans are printed on 16-point C1S coated board stock for one-sided printing with the finest lithographic techniques. For excellent color matching, all two-sided religious hand fans and church hand fans are printed on C2S board stock. All church fans are made with an 8" basswood handle, which is glued to the back.


Origins of Church Hand Fans

Where did Church Hand Fans originate? Some say it all started in a Baptist church in the deep South in the early 1800's. Ceiling fans were not invented then, and the only way to cool off was to open a window and pray for a cool breeze. Traditional Baptist dress code was conservative, so it could get uncomfortably warm during those hot summer days. Church Hand Fans were invented so a person could quietly and gently fan themselves with a back and forth motion without disturbing or distracting others around them.

Church Hand Fans originally were decorated with floral patterns and not used for advertising purposes. Things have changed quite a bit since then, and now you can find religious and Church Hand Fans imprinted with images of Jesus, the Last Supper, praying hands, your church logo, building, mission statement, outreach ministry or fundraising information.
