In House Production
Sailflags make all flags in-house and our costs are carefully managed to ensure our customers receive quality products with an eye on value for money.
By working with a flag maker direct, you reduce the cost paid per flag, even on individual and low print runs.
Quality within a competitive price
It is always worthwhile asking what quality (in gsm) material flags will be made from when you are shopping around. This single question will often guide you on any significant difference between flag prices.
Other factor that can affect flag prices
On the other hand, if you are using a design agency or signage company to source your flags, the price has to be increased to reflect both their design time and time spent organising booking and delivery.
When printers or flag makers talk about standard print, this simply means one piece of material is printed onto one side.
With feather flag printing, the ink soaks through the fabric, very often showing artwork on the front and back.
This effect is often called ‘show through’.
Sailflags have been making promotional flags for a very long time and we have perfected printing on single fabrics, which results in a very good show through on the back.
What is standard print best for?
If you have a simple design and are working within a budget, standard print offers the best value for money.
Working with standard print also allows you to consider multiple flags, creating bigger impact outside premises or event stands.
The only thing to note for example, is how words and graphics read or display.
Words will read correctly on the front and reverse reading or mirrored on the back.
Double sided print
With double sided print, ink is applied to both sides of the material (generally speaking)
With feather flag printing though, it is best to print on two pieces of fabric as this allows the artwork to line up almost perfectly from both sides.
Placing 2 pieces of fabric so close together though results in an odd effect, which means the fabrics need to be separated with an inner liner.
This inner liner reduces both sides clashing with each other, for example showing through artwork from both sides.
All writing and graphics read or display correctly both sides.
Our portable flag systems can be used indoors or outdoors and are designed to withstand winds up to 35mph.
We do not recommend however, displaying portable flagpole systems in excessive wind and rain.
How we print our feather flags
We use a very effective dye sublimation process using environmentally conscious inks and quality flag materials.
This provides vibrant digital colour reproduction with an estimated product life between 1-2 years. This will however depend on the how the flags are used.
How product life is affected by how they are used
Firstly, a feather flag tends to made for portable flagpoles.
Exceptions include Forecourt Flags, that are placed on permanent or semi permanent flagpoles.
Portable Flag systems are designed to be brought in each day and doing this will help extend the life of the whole system, including the flag.
Sailflags experience many years of usage with our own flags by bringing them in each day and lying them on a flat surface, for example a floor.
Excessive Weather Conditions
If your property is subject to excessive wind and rain throughout the year, you need to be aware this can affect product life.
If we are aware of this, when you order the flags, we can, for example, strengthen the flags or pole systems.
Other factors that can affect product life
Leaving flags out at night can be detrimental to the fabric, which is another reason why we recommend you bring them in each night, for example.
Portable Flagpole Systems are not permanent signage
Using flags as permanent signage is not a very sound solution, as these types of systems are light.
If you need permanent signage, we can discuss better alternatives with you.
Looking for wear and tear early
Promotional flags can be so easily repaired, if you pick up on wear and tear early, for instance.
Wear and tear shows as loose stitching, small holes appearing around stress areas, like the curve, for example.
All early signs of wear and tear can be so easily repaired and if you don’t have access to a local seamstress service, we can do the repairs for you, free of charge.
Keep away from obstructions
Keeping portable flags away from walls and obstructions will ensure they keep from harms way and will certainly extend product life.
We use good quality flag knit polyester, but other materials are available according to how flags will be used.
