101: Types of Fabric

There are two main types of fabrics we use at Custom Flag, Nylon and Polyester- but which one is the right choice for you. If you are ever unsure feel free to call us and we can assist you in the decision.

Otherwise, Polyester holds up great against weather as it absorbs the least amount of water, is the most UV resistant, and mildew resistant. Another bonus of polyester is its inability to stretch, shrink, or pile. 

As for Nylon, it holds up against weather as well, as it dries quickly after absorbing moisture and is mildew resistant. The nylon material does have the ability to stretch, but will never shrink. 

As for looks, both provide a durable flag, but the nylon has its own beauty as the sun's translucency is seen through the fabric creating a nice glow similar to a stained glass window.
