Digital Print on Vinyl

On occasion we have chosen to combine processes. The most common use of this has been when we want to use a photo quality (or many color) seal in an Applique flag. This can reduce the cost of the flag and reduce the lead time.

For a recommendation on this, please call us.

We specialize in:

  • Flags of any size that can be fully printed, and are economical in small to large quantities.
  • One-of-a-kind banners and pennants are usually made with the Applique process. This process is done on our own grounds. Our sewer Audrey does all of the sewing herself.
  • Digital printing, screen printing, and screen dying on nylon, vinyl banners, and signs.
  • Lettering or logos for application on window glass or plastics also available.
  • Avenue and mall banners are also available in heavy duty material or vinyl.
