You should tell us the precise font you want to use (eg. Arial, Verdana, Tahoma) and any variations on it (eg. Bold, Italic) and the exact colour. If you have a specific club or corporate colour and want us to match it, please use a Pantone reference from our downloadable Pantone chart. Click here to download a pdf file of Pantone colours.

Then you will need to have a high-resolution image file of your logo or photo part of your design. What's high-resolution? As a rough guide, any image that you copied from the internet or a picture taken on a mobile phone will be unsuitable. Yes, it probably looks great on your computer, but your flag is much bigger than your monitor and by the time your image is enlarged many times to the right size, it will have degraded and look awful. You can of course send us a low-resolution image for quotation or discussion purposes only but it will probably not be much use in production.

Then you will need to download our general flag template - this comes as a 4-page .pdf document containing full instructions and examples.

Fire Certificates? - Don't worry, we've got it covered!
Due to recent health & safety laws all venues (indoor and outdoor) require a British Standards fire retardant safety certificate to comply with BSI safety standards.
All of our flags have been laboratory tested and approved by the British Standards Institution. Each completed order will now receive a copy of our fire certificate for issue to venue health and safety officials and thus help ensure compliance. Our flags are made from flame-retardant material and all our printing inks are water-based and solvent free.
Top Custom Flag Tips!
Don't confuse our aluminium poles or our super strong and flexible solid fibreglass flag-ends (which are the best on the market) with the cheap fibreglass option used by some other suppliers, which crack and easily snap under any sort of strain. These may be a cheaper option, but will last only a day or two, whereas ours are a professional system built to last. Please Note: All portable flagpoles should be taken down during high gusting winds over 20 mph
