Fun with Flags: Custom Digital Printing Offers Endless Options to Make Your Own Flag!

These days it’s a snap to create full-color custom designed flags by using the latest digital printing technology, which in many cases can be used to bypass the messy and time-consuming silk-screen process of the past. To make your own flag, all you need to get started is your design, logo or photograph!

How Do You Make Your Own Flag?

The method for creating your own flag isn’t all that different from using a standard inkjet printer, however Gettysburg Flag Works uses special inks for the process, which are permanent and provide the durability needed for outdoor display. Your desired design for your personalized flag can be printed on nylon, polyester, vinyl and other materials. High-quality digital printing can be used for bold, saturated colors, as well as softer photographic designs.

Making Custom Printed Flags is Easy!

The options are endless, making it the perfect solution for personalized boat flags, and custom flags for organizations, schools, businesses and more! Custom-printed flags can be either single or double sided, and virtually any size, with as many details and colors as you can dream up. In some designs, the image is printed directly onto the fabric; in other cases, the design is printed onto paper, and then transferred onto the fabric. Gettysburg Flag Works employs both methods, depending on the project’s size and quantity.

There are some limitations to custom digital printing. Primarily, digital printing cannot currently be done on cotton or wool, which is frequently used for historical flag replicas. In other instances, a more luxurious, embroidered or applique design may be preferable, as well. For these types of projects, you’ll want to stick with a traditional, non-digital print.
