Options In Custom Flags For Your Business, School, Or Club

Business Blog

There are many reasons to have a custom flag made. You might want to hang one as a sign or marker for your business. You might want a flag to promote school spirit or for a club. Custom flags can be as intricate as you like, and you can order them in all sizes. Here are some more options for a custom flag.

Type And Style

If you want a flag you fly on a flagpole, you'll want to order one with grommets on the side. If you want a flag you carry or post above a doorway, you'll need a flag with a side hem that slips over a rod. In addition to knowing what style, you'll also want to know the type of flag since different flags come in different shapes. If you want a traditional flag, you'll choose a rectangular shape in the size you want. You could also opt for a feather flag with a rounded shape that slides over a stand or a garden flag that hangs from the top rather than the side.

Flag Material

Flags can be made from a variety of materials such as satin, nylon, polyester, or poplin. The choice may depend on price, weight, or whether you'll use the flag inside or outside. For instance, satin is suitable for an indoor flag while nylon is ideal for outside use. Material weight also comes into play when you choose between a single-sided or double-sided flag since the weight of the flag determines how well it flies in the breeze.

Double-sided flags use three pieces of material. Each side is a separate flag with the design printed on it and there is a third piece of material in the middle that blocks any bleed through of the sides. A single-sided flag just has one piece of material and the design is printed on only one side. The design will bleed through the other side somewhat depending on the type of material used in making the flag and the printing process chosen.

Design Type

You can create any type of design for your flag. The flag can have text with your chosen font and you can add stock images or use your own logo or pictures on the flag. Screen printing is often used to print the design. The cost of this type of printing is determined by the number of colors in your flag. If your flag will have multiple colors, you may want to use dye sublimation instead which allows you to use as many colors as you need without extra cost. Another option for creating your design is applique. This is the most expensive option, but it is the most beautiful. It's an option to consider if the flag will be seen up close so the applique artwork can be appreciated.

A custom flag can help employee morale, act as a sign, and foster sportsmanship. You can fly your flag outdoors alongside the country and state flag, or you can place it in a hallway, office building, or clubhouse. While you can spend a lot of money on a custom flag that has applique, you can also have one made for a very affordable price if you choose the right options.
