How are flags made?
Depending on budget and requirements, flags are all made using different methods. The most popular flags today would be the single sided and double sided flags which are made using the latest in polyester fabrics and silver coated satin for extra longevity. These budget flags tend to be printed using a dye sublimation process where the artwork is printed on a transfer paper and then heated to adhere to the polyester or polymer fabrics.As the colours are laid down as opposed to "dots" being printed on the fabric, the colours and quality is higher in resolution but also provide you with a quality that is less vulnerable to fading and image distortion. We do now also offer a Direct Print option for short term, fast turn around where the latest in Latex inks are used to embed the fabric. The best and more expensive process for printing flags tends to be the Screen Printing methods where the ink colours are layered and embed themelves to the fabric. Very costly for small quantities of flags however much cheaper for extremely large quantities as a lot of the costs are in the setting up process.
What is the standard size of a flag?
Common flags such as Supporter flags, retail flags, pole flags and other promotional flags are all pretty standard in size however all different from one style to the next. Being custom products, as a customer, you can pretty much choose from having the standard sizes or one of your own.
Can my flag be outside all the time?
Outdoor flags are used to withstand most normal weather conditions however must be taken inside in extrem conditions. We have had many customers call us to organise replacement poles as they can and may break during extreme winds. Despite being tested in harsh environments and being engineered to withstand strong winds, they are still not built to take on extreme weather conditions. When you know there is a storm brewing or gale force winds coming, bring your flags in or you will be at risk of having to replace your flags. Flags are there to assist you in promoting your brand. The best way to keep your flags flying and working for you is to look after them, just like your favourite garments. No need to leave them at night or outside in storms, no-one is going to see them. Flags are there to catch people's attention when they are around. The more you look after them, the longer they will last.

All the flags have a different way of being erected. Visit the page of the flag you have purchased and under the product images, you will see an icon that represents the instructions for assembly. Click on the text or icon that is called "assembly instructions" and you will be redirected to an assembly instructions document.
