How to Design a Feather Flag

A step-by-step guide for designing feather flags in a simple and effective way.

Feather flags are designed to attract the eye, as they move in the slightest of breezes or wind.

Getting the artwork design just right, will make all the difference in attracting the right customers to your business premises or show stand.

Option 1 | Draft out a design on paper

The simplest way to design a feather flag is by putting pen to paper and drafting out a rough design for us to work from.

Drafting out a rough design is quick and easy. You can also send logos/illustrations/images, etc separately, via email or an online file transfer service. You can use We Transfer – Sailflags to upload any artwork files you would like to use within the design.

Sailflags will make up the artwork for you and will send artwork proofs back for approval, prior to you confirming an order.

The draft design you send initially does not need to be a work of art.

A simple sketch drafted on a small piece of paper is more than ample to get the ball rolling.

Option 2 | Draft up a design using software

The second option will be to use design software, just like Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, for example.

As with option 1, you can simply draft out a rough layout, so we can see where you would like key information to be displayed.

If you would like to design your own flag, please note, we would need the artwork in the following format:

  1. CMYK colour profile
  2. 250 dpi
  3. File saved as PSD / High Res PDF / Ai / EPS
  4. Create outlines from any fonts used
  5. Remove / Hide any layers showing stitch lines/guides
