Design It Yourself (DIY) - 3x5 Foot Horizontal Flag (Made In Texas)
Save $$$ on a 3' x 5' customized horizontal flag by designing it yourself with our built in customizer. Click on the blue customize button above to get started.
Our 3x5 Flags are made of light-weight polyester for durability and are dye-sublimated to produce vivid bright colors. Printed in the USA, these flags are the typical size to fly on standard house poles or smaller flag poles. We reinforce our 3x5 Flags on the header (hoist) side with header tape and on the fly side with a hem with 4 rows of stitching.
Please NOTE the following BEFORE purchasing.
You MUST use the customizer to create your design for this product, otherwise we have no idea what you want. If you need some inspiration you can view our stock 3x5 flag designs to see whats possible. Those can be found here.
This is the most common flag size, especially for home use, and it matches the size of most of our stock horizontal flags. These flags are produced in-house. We use high quality flag material and UV fade-resistant ink, for the best quality in the industry.
We reinforce our Car Wash Premium 3x5 foot polyester flags on the header (hoist) side with header tape and on the fly side with a hem with 4 rows of stitching. We also use #4, rust-free, 100% brass grommets. These grommets are equipped with teeth for increased grip and have a larger than standard 1/2" hole for hanging.
This style of horizontal flags is printed on ONE side, yet is 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.Production

Most of our flags are printed on two sides using a heat press so there is as much ink on the front as the back. This makes for a beautiful, long-lasting image. Many of our flags are digitally printed or screen printed and the ink "bleeds through" the fabric so the image is visible on the back side. These printing types (digital or screen) gets varying amounts of ink through. Screen printed flags tend to be very bright on the back side of the flag while digitally printed flags will vary on the amount of penetration by color. While exact penetration percentages are really just guesses, we calculate we generally get 95% bleed through on screen printed (most of our stock flags) and 85-95% on our digitally printed flags, which would include some of our custom flags, our premium flags and a few of our stock designs. With all of our print techniques, except double-sided flags, the back side image is reversed.
This Customized Flag has an average turnaround production time of 3 days AFTER the approved design is submitted to the printer, plus transit shipping time.
There will be no proofs given after you purchase this product so make sure you have everything the way you want it (including spelling) before you submit the order. We do however preview the designs before printing, so we'll let you know if we have a concern about your design.
We DO NOT guarantee that the Custom Printed Sign will match the color displayed on your Computer Monitor or Printer exactly. Every substrate (print media) has a different density than paper so printed material will look differently. We can match colors fairly well, however.
Once we have received your order and design, 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 products are NOT returnable. However, we will make every attempt to satisfy our customers.
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 and can change from batch to batch. If you are designing your own sign 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. Custom Signs are not returnable.
Shipping rates for light products like these are based on Dimensional Weight (DIM) and not actual weight. Dimensional Weight is what the shipping company (FedEx in this case) determines a package of any given size should weigh. Since they charge by the weight and not the volume of the package, they set a minimum rate for the space the item takes up in their trucks, planes, and cargo haulers. Previous to the implementation of DIM weight companies were shipping small items in large boxes (one size fits all) and taking up enormous amount of space and paying only for the weight. This is the way the shipping company gets us to keep the volume to a minimum so they can maximize their limited cargo space.
So if the weight seems a bit unreasonable, that is because it is. But it is out of our hands.
