Custom Printed Flags

Product Overview

Custom flags are an effective marketing tool that uses colour and movement to gain attention and visibility. Custom Flags are perfect to fly along sign your nation and provincial flag. Custom Flag Printing can be done in a variety of ways including digital print  (acid dye printing), Screen printing and sublimation. At Aurora Flags and banners we either screen print or or digitally print our flags. We do use the sublimation process, but due to the lower ink penetration, the process is reserved for other fabric printing applications like backdrops and table covers

As a custom flag manufacturer in Edmonton we are able to create a flag to any shape or size. Our custom made flags are printed on 200D nylon or knitted polyester depending on client budget and deadline. Our standard finishing includes rope and toggle on the left hand side or grommets. Some Flags require special finishing such as grommets, D-Rings, Canval loops or special reinforcemetns in the header.

Custom printed flags come in a variety of shapes; however, in Canada the most common size is 3’x6′. In Canada, flag ratios are 2:1 which is different than other large flag markets such as the United States. 3’x6′ is the most common flag as it is flow on the most commly sized flag poles between 20′ and 30′

Custom printed flags come in all shapes sizes and qualities. As custom flag experts, we take it upon ourselves to decipher what good, whats bad, what in conformity and what is way out to lunch. When looking for a custom flag printer, it is important to know what material they are using. Material and printing process are the key factors that affect the longevity of your custom made flags.

At Aurora Flags and Banners our custom flags are offered in three main flag materials:

200 Denier Nylon Custom Flags

Our most popular material. This material is slightly heavier than the 70D nylon. It is perfect for outdoor or indoor use and is finished with either grommets or rope and toggle on the left hand side. Colours print vibrantly on nylon with a smooth finish.

Knitted Polyester (Polyknit, Drapeknit, Duraknit) Custom Flags

Ideal for quick turnaround times. Knitted polyester has a looser weave than nylon.  Great for indoor and outdoor use.

70 Denier nylon Custom Flags

This material is in conformity with the Canadian government standard. It is perfect for outdoor or indoor use. Aurora Flags rarely prints on 70D nylon anymore as it is a lower standard fabric than the 200D nylon that we print on. If required by government or for any other purpose, 70D nylon can be supplied

The next factor that affects the longevity and the quality of your custom flags is the printing process. At Aurora Flags, we employ the following

Screen Printing Custom Flags

Great for large runs and a few colours. This printing process makes for the longest lasting flag. Note: All of our Standard size Canadian and Provincial flags are screen printed

Digital Printing Custom Flags

Great smaller runs of flags as well as flags with lots of colours. Digital print is perfect for those looking for just one flag or a design which has intricacies or logos. Digital print has revolutionized the flag industry making it possible to print anything and everything!

Sublimation Printing Custom Flags

Sublimation is great for small runs as well as small applications. The penetration of the ink isn’t the best with sublimation and thus we reserve this process for fabric printing applications where penetration isn’t a priority- like fabric backdrops and fabric roll up banners
