Product Description

Digitally printed in the UK using high grade knitted polyester, MrFlag® brand Professional Quality flags are among the most versatile and best value flags on the market in the UK today. Combining quality materials and optimum flying weights, we expect these flags to last as well as sewn flags whilst flying much better at lower wind speeds.

We can turn almost any design or idea into a flag. Here’s how:

1. Upload your artwork to us here https://www.hightail.com/u/mrflag or email it to info@mrflag.com.

2. Remember to include your name, email address, and order number. Be sure to include any special instructions in the body of your email.

3. If you don’t have an artwork file simply email your instructions to info@mrflag.com or telephone 01792 650044

4. Where necessary we will prepare your artwork proof free of charge (in most cases) and email you a PDF proof to amend or approve

5. Once you have approved the artwork, we manufacture and deliver your flag.

6. As part of the quality control / checking process we will sometimes photograph your flag. Please tell us if you do NOT want such a photograph promoted on our Facebook and/or Twitter accounts.

7. Telephone 01792 650044 or email info@mrflag.com with any questions.

Digitally printed in the UK using high grade knitted polyester, MrFlag® brand Professional Quality flags are among the most versatile and best value flags on the market in the UK today. Combining quality materials and optimum flying weights, we expect these flags to last as well as sewn flags whilst flying much better at lower wind speeds.

In our view heavier sewn flags appear to last longer only because they spend less time flying in light wind. If another flagmaker claims that sewn flags last longer than printed, challenge them to provide the test data!

Fitted with rope and toggle as standard, Professional Quality flags can be fitted with metal eyelets or a sleeve at no extra charge. Please specify when ordering.

These flags are printed to order to ensure the very latest and most accurate Flag Institute approved designs are always used. Allow 7 days for your order to ship.

*Choosing the ‘Antifray’ option results in a piece of white netting being sewn to the right edge of the flag. It is commonly held that this netting will fray first thus prolonging the life of a flag, however there is no statistical evidence whatever to back this. We believe it is an unnecessary expense which, in many cases, has the opposite effect to that which is intended. We offer an ‘Antifray’ option ONLY because customers occasionally insist on it. We do not recommend it.

Construction Information

Standard custom flags are constructed using a single layer of fabric. The design is printed onto one side of this layer and shows through clearly to the second side as a mirror image. The vast majority of business- and personal-use custom flags are made using this method, including designs incorporating text. Double sided custom flags are constructed using two layers of fabric. The same design is printed onto both layers, which are then sewn back to back. This method allows text-heavy designs to be read correctly from both sides, however double sided flags are at least twice as heavy as Standard single-layer flags and therefore require a lot more wind to fly. Light colour double sided flags with dark designs can suffer from 'show-through' (where the shadow of the design from one layer is visible behind the design on the other layer). We do not recommend double sided flags. Blockout Interliner is a third layer of fabric sandwiched between the two printed sides of a double-sided flag. It negates the 'show-through' effect (where the shadow of the design from one layer is visible behind the design on the other layer). This additional layer results in a very heavy flag and is not always 100% effective in certain bright light conditions. Blockout interliner can change the visible shade of white (or other light colour) flags.

Artwork (Standard)

The quality of the design on your finished custom flag depends on the quality of the artwork used to print it. If you take a tiny low quality image off the internet and tell us to print it onto a 152x91cm flag, we will. Ultimately the responsibility is yours, but we are here to help you. Here’s how: 1. If you have an image and you’re not sure how good it is, email it to us at info@mrflag.com and ask. We’ll look at it and let you know what we think. 2. After receiving your paid order and artwork we’ll prepare a full size pdf proof and email it to you to check. Examine this proof on 100% magnification. This will show how elements of the design will look when you have the full size flag in your hand. Remember: just because your design looks slightly pixelated close-up doesn't mean it won’t be fine for a flag flying 6m up in the air. You must check this proof. We won’t start work on your flag until you confirm that you’re happy. 3. If you don’t have a picture of the design you want, but you can describe it (e.g. “a gold shell outlined in black with the text ‘Sue’s Seashell Sales’ in blue all on a white background”) we’ll draw it for you free of charge. This offer is not universal and does not apply to complex design (for which an additional charge may be made). We will only create free artwork for you once you have placed and paid for the flag to which it relates. Text is always free (unless you ask us for a font we don’t have or can’t draw and which you can’t supply). 4. We can draw most simple shapes (houses, animals, vehicles etc.) free of charge. 5. We can’t draw ‘ideas’. Please don’t ask us to come up with a design representing anger, or love etc. 6. We can’t improve photographs. If you send us a poor quality photograph to print it will stay poor quality. If you send us a very small poor quality photograph, by the time we've enlarged it to the size of your flag it will look worse not better. We can and do print good quality photographs very successfully. A photograph taken directly off your digital camera’s memory card is usually fine, but the same photograph once it has been reduced for use on a website usually won’t be fine.

Artwork (Advanced)

Our preference is for CMYK vector artwork with all text converted to outlines and a 5cm bleed, supplied as a pdf, ai, or eps. We use Adobe Illustrator CS6. If you’re using Photoshop or a program generating bitmaps, please supply your artwork at least 25% of size at 300dpi.
