Double Sided Flags vs Standard Print

united kingdom flagTraditional style flags flown from a permanent pole are generally designed to look the same from the front and back. These types of flags are absolutely fine printed onto a single piece of flag material.

Promotional flags, however, tend to display marketing messages on them, so any writing on the front can almost be illegible on the back.

There is only one real solution currently and that is printing 2 flags and sewing them back to back, so both sides are easily readable. An inner liner or blockout material can be used to reduce show through and this is becoming increasingly popular.

The only limitation to bear in mind with double-sided flags is bright white flags will appear light grey in certain light or bright sunshine.

As the images show, standard print displays words differently on the back.

This won’t be an issue, if you are using shorts words, like SALE or OPEN, for example. This is due to the fact that most people can read small words forwards and backwards (or in reverse)

Double sided flags display text correct reading both sides. The two double sided images show the choice between running the same copy both sides or running different copy each side, for example.

Double-Sided Feather Flags

We have seen a marked increase in enquiries for double-sided flags.

At first, it was obvious, some customers liked advertising messages reading correctly on both sides.

Today though, it is more about the overall look and feel of the flags, and the double-sided print looks and feels better quality.

The majority of flags we print today, are double printed, using a unique, inner lining that reduces show-through, whilst allowing the flags to flutter or move in a light breeze or wind. The lining is exclusive to Sailflags.
