Thank you for choosing us.
We will do our best to create your custom flags that you will proubly display.
I would like to remind you that all our flag prices are in USD.
While completing your custom flag order, you will be asked to choose the details like size, quantity, finishing type or fabric type.
One of the options that causes the most confusion is the 1 ply or 3 ply flag option.
Before you order your flag, you need to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each type and make sure the type of flag you choose is the correct type for your use.
First of all, if you need an outdoor flag to fly on a tall flagpole, we recommend 1ply flags.
1 ply flags have to be made from coarse material to release the wind pressure to last longer during storms.
That is how the printing ink bleeds through the fabric and we get the same image on the back side as mirror image of the front side.
That ink penetration feature is something desireable in flags because you would not want to see a faded looking flag on the back side.
So mirror image of the front side on the back is perfectly normal in flags.
But, If you want the text to read correct from both sides, we have to print a 3 ply flag.
3 ply flags are made by sewing 2 flags back to back with a light blocking material in between to prevent shadowing through. This way, the text will read correct from both sides but with a price.
These are heavy flags and will need strong winds to fly them. They will NOT fly in light breeze.
We mostly recommend them exclusively for indoors. Thet should be displayed in a way that both sides are visible like hanging from a ceiling or on wall mounted flag poles.
Or short term outdoor use like parades.
If you have a very high resolution artwork file, you can upload your file on the order page.
If you do not have an artwork or if your artwork is not good enough top print your flag, our graphic designers will draw your artwork in vector format for a small fee.
Vector fee is a one time cost, and will not be required again for reorders (unless there are major changes with the design)
We will keep your file in our archieves for any future orders, and also will be happy to share a copy of the high resolution pdf with you (for any future print orders, though we hope you are satisfied with the product and will choose us your future flag vendor as well)
For urgent orders or any questions, please contact us.
