Custom made flags and banners are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and construction.

We can guide you on the best process for your application. Below outlines the three most popular processes.

Email your artwork or design ideas along with your contact information and we'd be happy to provide a quotation and recommend a process that best fits your needs. A .pdf file will be sufficient for our viewing to quote your flag as final art requirements will vary with each process.

Below outlines the three processes and information we need to help us best quote your custom needs. Feel free to email or call us and we can navigate you through what is required to receive a quotation.

The actual design is always a great start.

DIGITALLY PRINTED / DYED

This process is great for designs with many colors, lots of details and gradients. The number of colors does not affect the price. With a digitally printed dyed flag, the background starts out as white and all colors are dyed onto the fabric. It is used for all detailed printing that reproduces color photographs, shading and gradients.

Quantities as low as one can be produced with this process.



For digitally printed quotations, we require:

•The design - we don't truly need the design to quote digitally printed products but it will help us determine if this process is the best for your design. If you don't have the design, we can still provide a quotation.

•Size (standard sizes listed at top)

•Quantity

•Finish style such as heading and grommets for outdoor use or pole sleeve with tab for indoor/parade use

•Do you require fringing for indoor/parade use? If yes, what color? Standard fringe color is an orange/yellow such as used on United States parade flags.

•Plus any other details that are required for your job.

•Front reading correct (back will read reverse about 10% lighter) or two sides reading correct?

We highly recommend NOT making a two sides reading correct flag. The standard is for the design to read correct on one side and reverse on the other. This image is still on the backside, it is just the mirror image of the front.

To produce a two sides reading correct flag requires two flags produced and sewn back to back with a liner. This will double the cost of the flag, the flag will not fly as well and may not last as long due to it's weight. The wind within the layers will cause it to fill up like a pillowcase, pulling the stitching apart therefore, the flag will not last as long. Back reading reverse is strongly recommended and the standard for flags. __________________________________________________________



APPLIQUE

Applique is a process where the design, which is comprised of nylon, is sewn onto the nylon background. This is the process of choice for single quantity jobs since it does not require setup preparation. However, some designs are just too detailed to use this process.



For applique quotations, we require:

•The actual design in order to give accurate quotation

•Size (standard sizes listed at top)

•Quantity

•Background color and design color(s: Just generic color choices, final choices can be determined when proceeding with order. The more colors, the more labor intensive the applique process becomes. Also, some colors are not in stock and may require a special purchase of nylon.

•Finish style such as heading and grommets for outdoor use or pole sleeve with tab for indoor/parade use

•Do you require fringing for indoor/parade use? If yes, what color? Standard fringe color is an orange/yellow such as used on United States parade flags.

•Plus any other details that are required for your job.

•Front reading correct and back reverse or two sides reading correct? We highly recommend NOT making a two sides reading correct flag.

The standard is for the design to read correct on one side and reverse on the other. This image is still on the backside, it is just the mirror image of the front.

To produce a two sides reading correct flag requires two flags produced and sewn back to back with a liner.

The wind within the layers will cause it to fill up like a pillowcase, pulling the stitching apart therefore, the flag will not last as long. Back reading reverse is strongly recommended and the standard for flags. _________________________________________________________



SILKSCREEN

Silkscreen is the process where ink is placed on the background material. Due to screen set up charges, this process is most appropriate for jobs of large quantities such as 6 or more. The colors must be spot colors and cannot have shading or gradients. The more colors you have in your design, the more screens that are required and the more expensive it will be.

For designs with multiple colors, we recommend the digital print process listed above.



For silkscreen quotations, we require:

•Size (standard sizes listed at top)

•Quantity

•Background color and design color(s)

•Finish style such as heading and grommets for outdoor use or pole sleeve with tab for indoor/parade use

•Do you require fringing for indoor/parade use? If yes, what color? Standard fringe color is an orange/yellow such as used on United States parade flags.

•Plus any other details that are required for your job.

•Front reading correct and back reverse or two sides reading correct? We highly recommend NOT making a two sides reading correct flag.

The standard is for the design to read correct on one side and reverse on the other. This image is still on the backside, it is just the mirror image of the front.

In most cases, to produce a two sides reading correct flag requires two flags produced and sewn back to back with a liner. This will double the cost of the flag, the flag will not fly as well and may not last as long due to it's weight. The wind within the layers will cause it to fill up like a pillowcase, pulling the stitching apart therefore, the flag will not last as long. Back reading reverse is strongly recommended and the standard for flags.

If you have shading or gradients, not solid colors then the digital print process is the process that is required not silkscreen.
