Have you ever wanted to own a flag with your own unique design on it? Is a business needing a banner for a special event? Do you want a flag for family reunion? How about a canopy tent for your next camping trip? Whatever the occasion, our in-house design team here at Custom Flag Company has the ability to bring your dreams to a reality. There can be a lot of work that goes into getting your own custom flag. So to make it easier we have created a step by step guide, how to create a custom flag. Here is what you should know!
Step 1 – Have A Design In Mind
You don’t have to be an artist to give us an idea to work with. Our graphic design team works with customers everyday to bring ideas to life. Sketch something down with a pen and paper and talk to our staff about what you envision. We enjoy a creative challenge, and want to craft something totally unique for you. Of course, if you already have an idea digitally designed this will expedite the process of getting a flag in your hands. Images that require the least amount of work for our staff are vector files, most commonly saved as .AI ( Adobe Illustrator). Vector files are a necessity for graphic design work, as it preserves the quality of the image, so the image is not pixelated, as we move through the design process.
We now have an option on our website to upload a design directly for production when (good) vector art is provided. The benefits of this include no set-up fees, no minimum order, and deep discounts for large quantity orders. Find out more by clicking here to view our custom made flags page!
Step 2 – Finalize Design and Details
Once the design has been conceptualized, our graphic artists will finalize the details of the artwork, and fit it to the specifications of your flag, banner, or any other custom work you’re interested in. Then, our artists will send you the final version of the artwork for approval before sending the specifications off to our manufacturer, and providing you with an invoice for proof of purchase. Once we receive payment from the customer, we send off the order to the manufacturer. Turn around time for orders is about two weeks in most cases.

Step 3 – Get Your Flag
Once steps 1 and 2 have been completed, you should receive your flag in about 2 weeks time. Customers have the option of drop shipping their orders directly to them, or can be sent to Custom Flag Company for an in store pickup. Keep in mind that all custom orders are non-refundable unless due to a manufacturer defect.
