5 Points You Should Consider Before Having a Custom Flag Made

Aug 22, 2007
When you are looking for a custom flag quote you should condsider the following

1. Size

This makes a difference to the price. Think what your custom flags will be used for - if they are going to be used for promotion use, give always etc. then low grade polyester will be perfect. Smaller sized flags will always be cheaper than larger ones but select the size dependent on the purpose for the flags.

2. Quantity

This is always a major factor in price. The more you order the cheaper the flag - this is mainly due to labour costs. It is just as quick to make 5 flags as it is 1. So when asking for a quote for 1 flag it is suggested to request a price for 5 flags. You will be surprised at the savings you can make.

3. Colours

This is important for a custom flag price. Assume you have 4 colours - red, green, blue and grey in your logo - if your are looking to have 10 custom flags made it would be better to have them screen printed rather than digitally printed. With screen printing there is a film made for each colour and those films can be reused several times. However, digital printing is carried out by machine and results in the use of more colour. While it is cheaper to print 1 flag using the digital print method, it depends on the design and colours chosen. If your design is full colour then digital may only be the option you have.

4. Location/Material

The location of where the flag is to be flown will determine the materials best suited. Take into consideration the types of conditions your flag with endure example, weather and sunlight are big factors into the life of the flag. If you want your flag to last, there is no point in having your flag made with lower grades of polyester if your flag will be flown in extreme weather conditions.

5. Ply

Flags can be 1ply or 3ply depending on what you need your customs flags to do. 1ply flags are printed on 1 side with the image bleeding through to the other side with about 90% reverse see through. A 3ply flag is virtually 2 flags printed separately and then stitched together using a middle liner to stop the see through effect.

Remember these few points - size, quantity, colour/s, location, material and ply are all important factors to be considered when requesting the best quote on the custom flags required.
