Customised Flag

Customised Flag

What information to provide if I want a custom made flag?


1) Size of the flag

The standard size of a flag is 4.5ft x 3ft which is the same as our National Flag. The ratio of the length and the height of the flag is 3:2. However, we can also custom make different sizes with different proportions according to your requirement.

2) Quantity

We understand that there may be more than 1 design and 1 flag, please inform us the quantity for each of the designs.

3) Single-Sided or Double-Sided Flag

A single sided Print (also known as 1 layer) flag is only printed on one side. It can either be single-sided print/mirror image on reverse or single-sided print with no image on reverse, depending on the material. Some materials allow the dye to bleed through to the other side of the flag and the image will then be reverse on the back.

Example of a Single-sided Print with mirror image on reverse flag

The extent as to how much of the image will be visible on the back of the flag depends on the thickness of the material and printing process. Most of our flags will have a 75% bleed.

A single-sided print flag is usually the most common choice due to the cheaper price. Single-sided print flags are also much lighter than a double sided flag.

Double-sided flags

A double-sided flag is created from 2 separate flags that are printed and then sewn together, resulting in a double sided flag.

Example of a Double-Sided Flag

However, if your logo is symmetrical, you can consider having the logo appliqué on both sides of the flag to reduce the weight. The logo will be printed and then sewn on instead of printing 2 pieces of flags and joining them together.

Artwork

We are able to convert any artwork you may have into vector file formats. Sign companies, media companies, and graphic artists alike- all of them know that vector files are the best file format for printing.

    If possible, please send us files in these formats:

  • Adobe Illustrator Files
  • EPS (Vector)
  • AI (Vector)
  • PDF (Vector)

    If not, all other file formats can be sent but they must be of high resolution and fulfil the following:

  • Other File Formats:
  • JPEG high resolution file with 300dip
  • Photo images of 500KB or larger

You do not have a proper vector file or need our help to do the artwork/amend the artwork? Do not worry. To guarantee your satisfaction, we can assist to convert your art to vector files or make amendments for free when you order your custom flags from us.

Colours using Pantone Matching System (Pantone Codes)

As different materials may produce different colours, we match the colours by using pantone codes. This allows us to match your colours as close as possible to get the perfect results you want. Whether you choose screen printing, heat transfer or digital printing, we will do our best to match any and all pantone codes.

Flag Fixtures

Listed below are available fixtures for our flags:


Option 1: Rope Loops

This is the most common type of fixture to hoist a flag onto the flag pole. These are two looped pieces of heavy duty rope, which are attached to the hanging side of the flag and then to attach the flag to the flag line.

Option 2: Sleeve Pocket

Sleeves are common for hang held flags or free standing flags. The pole can then be slide on, and the top is usually sewn together with strings to prevent the flag from sliding down.

Option 3: Eyelets/Grommets

They are placed on the hanging side of the flag. It can be on the top left and top right of the flag, top left and bottom left of the flag if you intend to hang it. It can also be at 4 corners of the flag if you intend to suspend the flag in midair.

Option 4: No Fixtures

If you do not require any fixtures, we will sew the perimeter of the flag so that it is neat and tidy.
