What are custom flags?
Custom flags are personalized with your own graphics and logos rather than a ready-made image, such as a state or country flag. Design your own flag image to be replicated on the material, such as your business slogan and logo or your local sports team mascot. Customized flags are made uniquely for customers upon request. Create custom flag designs for anything you would like, whether that be for business, education, showcasing custom artwork, or just for home display!
Can you make your own photo flags?
Yes! If you would like to create a flag featuring your photos, we offer three different design methods. We print our custom flags in full CMYK color, which allows us to recreate photos in great detail.
What is the standard flag size?
The most popular custom flag banners sizes are available as standard sizes in the size dropdown. The most frequently purchased size is our custom 3x5 flag. Another very popular size often used for custom made flags is 5x8. It is important that the pole size being used with the flag is factored into what the size of the flag should be. The typical rule is that the flag’s height should be ¼ of the pole height.
How are my graphics printed on the custom 3x5 flag?
Graphics are printed onto flags using a printing method known as dye sublimation. With dye sublimation printing, the material is heated and then inked or dyed with each color needed to create the finished image, one layer at a time. By using this custom flag printing process, we create full, vibrant colors and the print is resistant to scratching and peeling off. Another benefit of dye sublimation printing is unlimited color usage. Whether you are designing a custom logo flag or an all-over graphic, make your own flag with as many colors as you would like for no extra cost.

Does it cost extra to design my flag with multiple colors?
No, it does not cost extra to design your flag with multiple colors. Because we print using dye sublimation, you can make a custom flag with many colors as you would like, for no extra cost.
What's the difference between single-reverse and double-sided custom flags?
Single-reverse style is standard, and means that your design is printed on one side of the polyester material is the mirror image of your design bleeds through the other side.
When we print custom 3x5 flags double sided, you’re not limited to just one image or graphic like you are with a single-reverse printing style. The use of a piece of blocking liner between the two sides of the flag means that you can print anything you want on either side without having to worry about it bleeding through to the other side. Please note that the inner line makes a quiet crinkling sound if you were to scrunch or squeeze your flag. You can rest assured that this is the industry standard when producing double-sided flags. The liner is imperative so that your unique designs do not bleed through both sides of the flag.
Keep in mind that single reverse is a popular style because it’s more enduring for outdoor use and easily flows in the wind. Custom double sided flags are heavier than single-reverse flags and won’t wave in the wind as much.
Material and Durability
What material are the custom outdoor flags made of?
While we offer custom flags cheap, we do not use lesser materials. We print our custom flags and banners using dye sublimation on our outdoor flag polyester material, a lightweight polyester that is designed to be scratch-resistant and UV-resistant. This material is designed for extended outdoor use in wet or dry conditions. As a custom flag maker, we believe that polyester material is best for flags because the printing method creates bold, stand-out colors that will not scratch or peel in different weather conditions. Our polyester also has an excellent thru-print, making it the perfect option for single-reverse flags. Polyester flags are also ideal for displaying all year round because the knitted fabric is tear-resistant for durability.
Can these flags be displayed indoors and outdoors?
Yes, these flags can be displayed indoors and outdoors. They are made from our flag polyester, a durable fabric material that can be displayed indoors and outdoors for long periods of time without showing any signs or wear and tear.
What’s the lifespan of the personalized flag material?
Regarding the lifespan of the print and material, customers can generally expect over 6 months of use, plus or minus some time depending on facts such as air pollution, severity of weather, lightfastness level, and material composition. In order to get the most out of the product, we recommend that customers perform general maintenance, such as washing, trimming, reinforcing and re-hemming every 8-12 weeks (3 months).
Are your personalized flags flame-retardant?
Our custom flags are made from a knitted polyester fabric that is not meant to be flame-resistant. We advise that you keep your flag away from fire and sparks, or else it could catch on fire and ruin the design.
How will the weather affect my custom made flags?
The material is UV-resistant and printed using dye sublimation. This means that the rain and sun won’t wear down the custom outdoor flags material or the printed image.
Finishings and Accessories
Do you offer flag fringe?
Yes, we do offer fringe for flags. Choose from Chainette Fringe or Bullion Fringe styles. For more information on each style, see the fringe comparison section located above.
Do you offer kits? Is a flagpole included with my purchase?
We do offer flagpoles as an optional accessory for our custom flags. For an additional fee, you can purchase one of the four pole options listed below:
- 6ft handheld – for use in parades and similar events
- 6ft wall mount – for use outside homes and businesses
- 6ft pole-mount with steel bands for mounting on street poles
- 20ft standard pole for flying your flag outside schools or residences
Do you offer grommets or pole sleeves?
We offer both grommets and pole sleeves under the “Finishing” tab in the product configurator. Grommets are ideally used for custom wall flags or for using with a large flagpole. Pole sleeves are for use with thinner, more portable poles. All feather flags use pole sleeves rather than grommets.
Setup and Care
How do I take care of my personalized flag?
Our custom made flags can be washed, but it’s very important to follow some specific guidelines. They shouldn’t be washed with bleach, only soft detergent on a delicate cycle. We recommend not washing your flag with other fabrics for best results. Don’t dry your flag, it should be air dried outdoors. If your flag is wrinkled after being washed, the wrinkles will be removed after the flag dries. Don’t iron your flag to get rid of the wrinkles, it will ruin the material.
