Why use printed flags?
A printed flag may seem a bit "old hat" in todays technology driven advertising world, but they are still very popular and very effective! Often seen outside an office building, sports stadium, University or school, printed flags can reinforce your brand name and also acts as a location marker for your premises and can even catch the attention of passers by.
When you think of printed flags you may se a picture in your head of them being displayed on a flagpole permanently situated outside a building. This can be the case but thery are also very popular when displayed on temporary advertising flagpoles at outdoor events and exhibitions.
If you are looking for a visual way of attracting customers, promoting at an outdoor event then printed flags are great for getting you noticed.
How are custom flags made?
There are a couple of ways custom flags can be made. Screen printing, sewn/appliqued, but the most popular way is to digitally print them as it's the cheapest and quickest way to produce a flag without compromising on the quality of the flag. The process of digitally printing a flag is quite simple. We take a white piece of polyester fabric and directly print your design to create your desired flag. Once the flag has been printed it is then put through a pressure heater which beds in the ink so that the colours don't bleed when it is flown outside. Once this is done it is then passed on to our finishing department who hem all the edges, which give it extra protection against the wind and finish it depending on your requirements. Flag finishings include eyelets, rope & toggle, pole pouch, D-rings amongst others.
Why get your Flags printed with us?
All of our flags are printed right here in the midlands, which give us tight control over quality, leadtimes and also offer some of the lowest prices in the UK. Printed on brand new Mimaki printers, we use a quality 115gsm polyester which produces a vivid, colourful flag. As flags can be bespoke made, we can print them in any size, shape and with any design as well as offer a whole range of finishings such as rope & toggle, eyelets, inglefield clips, sleeves and more.
Single sided or double sided flags?
99% of flags are printed single sided with a mirror image to the reverse, but occasionally there is a requirement for a double sided flag which reads correctly on both sides. The big thing to consider with double sided flags is that they are very heavy as they are essentially 2 flags in 1 so they don't fly very well unless they are attached to a rotating arm. We also offer double sided printed flags so if this is the option you choose to go for then we can help.
We have a team of graphic designers who can help you turn your ideas into a printed flag! Give us a call to discuss your requirements.
