WHAT IS A CUSTOM HORIZONTAL FLAG?
A Custom Horizontal flag is a handmade product (made in the USA). They are digitally printed and individually sewn. Custom 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 5 days AFTER the approved design is submitted to the printer, plus transit/shipping time. If you need it faster, please let us know and we will make every effort to accommodate your needs.
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 can make Double-Sided flags. To have us make your flag double-sided, purchase two flags, and put in the comments section that this is to be a double-sided flag. We don't typically offer double-sided flags because they a heavy and don't fly as nicely as a single-sided flag. Most flags you see are single-sided.
We get about 95% bleed-through with our digital printer, depending on color.
We make horizontal flags in three sizes: 2'x3', 3'x5', and 4'x6'.
WE DESIGN FOR YOU
We provide FREE design services for simple designs.
Logos and graphics need to be sent to: email@example.com. 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.
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. Open the tab that lists your flag size and click on the link to download. Illustrator™ users can open up the Photoshop™ file in Illustrator™ and work with it there. Before sending the file to firstname.lastname@example.org 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. 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, Feather Banner flags will last an average of 6-8 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.
