Do you need your own words, logo, and colors on a rectangular style flag? This is the product for you!
We can manufacture this flag for you at some of the most competitive rates in the industry. These flags are digitally printed with a photo-quality ink jet printer, on high quality Berger 117 flag material, so you can have any color, image, text and/or design you want! (Anything you can print on paper we can print on a flag). The banner is made of tearproof polyester for long life and bright colors. Because of our printing technique, the image is brilliantly reproduced on the front side, with excellent bleed through to the other side (see our sample photos below).
Make sure your potential customers can find you and know what you sell. These large 6 foot by 2.5 foot banners are designed to draw attention to you. They really work!
WHAT IS A CUSTOM RECTANGULAR BANNER FLAG?
A Custom Rectangular Banner flag is a handmade product (made in the USA). This includes large-scale digital printing and individual sewing. Custom Rectangular Banner flags can be printed with just about anything you want put on them. It is very much like printing from your computer to a printer, except that we are printing on fabric.
Average turnaround production time is 7 days AFTER the approved design is submitted to the printer, plus transit shipping time. We will not promise a custom flag order any earlier than this.
To start an order you’ll need to first purchase the custom flag. We do not do any design work without a paid order. Add this item to your cart, and then during checkout, enter your design instructions into the COMMENTS box that appears right before payment. This will include your color choices, your text message, any themes, etc. Any logos or graphics, as well as ALL custom flag related correspondence should be sent to: email@example.com. To preserve a "virtual paper trail", we communicate via email, ONLY.
This style of custom flags is printed on ONE side, yet are readable from both sides. The image bleeds through to the back of the flag and is the reverse image of the front. This is typically not a problem for people reading the flag since most words can be easily read from their reverse.
We get about 95% bleed-through with our digital printer, depending on color. The image is very readable on the back side as you can see from the photograph above.
These custom flags are 6 feet tall by 2.5 feet wide.
WE DESIGN FOR YOU
We provide FREE design services for simple designs.
During checkout, enter your design instructions into the COMMENTS box that appears right before the payment section. Include your color/theme choices, your text message, etc. Include as much detail as you can about what you want. Logos and graphics need to be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Images and logos must be vector graphics (usually file types ending in PDF or EPS) because we are going to enlarge them. There is no set-up fee and no color fee (these are digitally printed). The first draft and first revision of the design will be free. There will be a $15 charge for revisions after the initial one. Please be as specific as possible when requesting your flag design. Turn-around time on flag design is one to two days. When we design a flag for you we will send you images for your final approval. We will not print a flag without your written approval of the design. Unless you specify otherwise we will design your flag as a windless flag.
If you have the Adobe Photoshop™ or Illustrator™ application, you may choose to download the template that we have available and design the flag yourself. You can download the template and instructions by clicking here. Illustrator™ users can open up the Photoshop™ file in Illustrator™ and work with it there. Before sending the file to email@example.com save it without layers in PDF format. Please do not alter the template, except to add your design to it. Please don't design on the safe layer. Your design should bleed to the edges. Since we use a CMYKcm printer, you can design in RGB rather than CMYK, for optimal color choices.
Screen Proofs depict Design Layout, Text Accuracy & Image Placement, but will only ESTIMATE Color Matching or Color Density. We DO NOT guarantee that the Custom Printed Flag will match the color displayed on your Computer Monitor or Printer. Fabric has a different density than paper (more porus so less ink can stick to it) so flags will look differently. We cannot match colors exactly.
Vista Flags has no upload capability on our web site, so we communicate via email. Since we need everything in writing, all correspondence concerning custom flags is done via email. Once we receive your email indicating a design as APPROVED, Vista Flags is released from ALL liabilities for any errors including, but not limited to: Grammar, Spelling, Color Matching, Size, Image Placement, Resolution, and Color Density. Custom flags are NOT returnable.
LIFE EXPECTANCY OF FLAG
If left out in the weather 24/7, Rectangular Banner flags will last an average of 4-6 months, depending on conditions. You will get longer life by taking them in at night and putting them up in the mornings, and by not flying them in high wind conditions (over 35 mph). Please take this information into consideration prior to purchasing.
While we try to match the colors as accurately as possible, a variety of things will alter the colors, some of which are beyond our control (currently) including humidity. Inks respond differently to temperature (we put it through a heater) and can change from batch to batch. If you are designing your own flag and it contains yellow, make it at pure as possible (100% Yellow - 0% everything else), slight percentages of other colors may turn the yellow green. A note about Red: We cannot get bright red because we have to mix Magenta and Yellow. For the best red use 5% Cyan, 100% Magenta, 90% Yellow, and 1% Black. Reds made up of 100% Magenta and 100% Yellow comes out red to the orange side. Custom flags are not returnable.
The purpose of the flag is typically to get your message out to your potential customer as quickly and accurately as possible. So keep the message simple. The more text is on the flag the harder it is for a customer to figure out what you do or sell. As much as possible make your main message vertical. The human mind has a great capacity to read the message vertically, even from the back side (reverse). Text and graphics that run sideways are easy to read from the front, but almost impossible to read from the back.
Check the readability of your flag based on where your customers are going to see your flag. Use the image we send you (or you design) and see if which way the wind generally blows. We typically design the flag with the pole on the left side. But we can reverse that if that would make your flag backwards for the majority of the viewers. The curved side is the pole side. You want the pole side to face the direction of the wind.
