WHAT FLAG DESIGN IS MOST SUITABLE FOR ME?
We provide many different flag and banner designs in a range of sizes, and choosing the best design depends on the purpose of the flag. We have provided a Specification Sheet (which can be downloaded as a PDF file) on product descriptions which provide you with specific information relating to the size and weight of our flags. This also informs you of the best base to use to anchor your flags. Please click on the following link to download a copy of the specification sheet.
DO I WANT SINGLE OR DOUBLE-SIDED PRINT?
A single-sided flag has the design printed on just the one side. This allows the flag to move more freely in the wind, making the design eye-catching. This type of print will also show through to the other side of your flag in a mirrored image.
A double-sided printed flag has a design which features on both sides of the flag. They are composed of three flags sewn together, making the overall flag much heavier and sturdier (therefore making them longer lasting).
WHICH BASE IS MOST SUITABLE FOR MY FLAG?
The type of base you require to anchor your flag is dependent upon the ground you wish to place it on. For instance, if you display your flag on soft ground it is best to use a ground spike to anchor your flag to, whereas if you are placing the flag on hard ground it is best to use a water base. If you plan to display the flag indoors then a cross-base stand is the most suitable option.
HOW LONG WILL MY FEATHER FLAG LAST FOR?
The life of a feather flag depends on a variety of factors, such as: weather conditions, material used, length of time outside and how well the flag is looked after. That being said, we cannot say exactly how long a flag will last. Take a look at our “Taking Care of Your Feather Flag” sheet (shipped with your flag) for advice on how to look after and prolong the life of your flag.
HOW CAN I TAKE CARE OF MY FLAG?
To ensure you get the longest available life from your flag it is vital that you take care to look after it as best as you can. Here is a brief explanation of how you can take appropriate care of your flag.
We advise that, if flags are intended for use outdoors, they are taken indoors or taken down during periods of high wind (i.e. exceeding 25mph). If flags are left up in high wind speeds this could result in tears and rips in the fabric.
Avoid any added weight such as snow or heavy rain.
Be cautious when choosing a location to place your flag. For instance, you should avoid placing them where they may flap against solid surfaces such as walls or fences, on which they may get caught, causing tearing or wear.
Regularly wash your flag to remove any dirt and debris collected which could cause discolouration of the fabric, and to ensure they are kept in a good condition. Our flags can be dry-cleaned or machine-washed at 30 degrees.
Ensure that your flags are completely dry before folding or packing away. We suggest that it is best to fit your flag back to its pole to remove any creases.
WHAT MATERIAL ARE THE FLAGS PRODUCED FROM?
Our flags are produced using 110gsm (grams per square metre) 100% polyester.
WHAT IS THE DELIVERY TIME ON FLAGS?
