Screen Printing Flags and Banners are available in all
shapes, sizes and colors. Let your imagination be our guide!
Using your city seal, corporate logo, family crest, school or organization
emblem we can design a unique flag or banner to your individual specifications. We have
designed and built award winning trade show exhibits, decorated hotel lobbies, shopping
centers and sport complexes with giant banners, and warmed hotel lobbies and office
interiors with our bright wall hangings.
One of our custom designers begins work on your order as soon as we
receive it. Felt, nylon, rayon or satin is used for the design background. They insure the
longer life of your flag and give just the right shades of color. Next, the proper
construction technique is chosen. Intricate designs and lettering are delicately
embroidered. Bolder designs might call for applique. Other designs might work best with
our hand screen printing. To give a flag individuality and flair, we often combine two or
more of these techniques.
The designer then supervises the actual manufacturing of your flag by our
skilled seamstresses and printers. But even when their work is finished, your flag
It must still receive the designers final approval and the
FlagSource signature of quality. Only after all these steps do we ship your custom flag,
designed and carefully crafted just for you. Contact our fully trained sales staff to
assist you with prices, design, and techniques.
Outdoor Printed Flags
We dont sacrifice the quality when you need quantity. The finest
work of our screen artists produces these affordable flags with designs so true and colors
so bright that they cannot be distinguished from embroidered flags at a distance. Our
screen printing process allows us to photograph every color in your design and faithfully
transfer it to the fabric without losing its original color or intensity.
Indoor & Parade
For a small additional charge, printed flags can be elegantly finished
with your choice of fringe and a pole hem.
A Word About Pricing of Custom Printed Flags and Banners
The cost of Printed Flags and Banners is determined by the number of ink colors required
to render the design. Each color used in a design requires an individual set of
photographic preparations which we refer to as "Set-up Charges." Once all of the
individual printing screens have been prepared, these master screens can be used to
produce any number of flags or banners. For this reason, printed flags and banners become
less expensive per item as the quantity increases. Intricacy of the design is not usually
a cost consideration unless it contains a significantly large number of colors.
Special Note: The prices listed below are based on white or light colored background
fields. If your design requires a dark background, please contact our Sales Department for
aid in determining the proper pricing.
Also, all of our custom prices are based on receiving customer-furnished,
camera-ready artwork and are confirmed upon receipt of that material. If artwork is
not available, it can be prepared by Colonial Flags for an additional charge.

Artwork Requirements for Printed and Applique
Camera-Ready Art: A pure black image on a pure
white or clear film base. The edges of the image should be clean and crisp. No jagged
edges. No gray scales. Dot screen should also be clean and crisp. This will ensure
accurate reproduction of your design. The ideal size would fit on letter or legal size
For a multi-color application, the art should be
color separated, (still appearing as black and white art). A color composite of the design
is also required showing the design as it should appear when finished.
Computer Disk File: We are IBM based. If you are
Macintosh based, we have no problem in translating your disk provided they are saved as
follows. We need all files saved in vector format (where all files are comprised of
outlines, not pixels), using draw programs like Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator. Files
should be saved in any of the following formats: (.eps vector, .ai, ,cdr, .dxf, .plt,
.pcx).We cannot translate any design done in Freehand, QuarkXpress, or Photoshop.
Please, no bitmaps (saving a Photoshop TIFF as an
EPS does not convert the image to a vector-based file). Our method of production is
"spot color" which is the reason we need vector based file, not bitmaps.
If you are using a non-standard typeface in your
design, please include them with your file. Font substitution often creates unintended
changes to your layout. Another option would be to convert all the copy to line (this
works great. We use high-density disk, no double density. The file should be in a true
Dot screens which are provided on disk must be sent
"out of house" at an extra charge.
