What is Applique?
Applique is a process of sewing the details onto a flag or banner. Similarly to quilting, each detail of the design is a separate piece of fabric. Unlike quilting though, an applique design is layered pieces of fabric. As you flip through the photos above, you'll notice that there's an outline of stitching on each element of the design. This stitching is what holds it to the layer below it. Each item is stitched on by one of our expert seamstresses using a sewing machine.
When Should I Use Applique for a custom flag?
Applique is a rich and beautiful custom banner process. It lends itself to bold, colorful designs with larger elements and solid colors. We recommend the applique process for flags and banners that will be viewed close up, where the detail can be appreciated. Because it requires such attention to detail, most orders are for one to twelve items, whileare usually used for large quantities.
How Do I Order an Applique Banner or Flag?
Once you've received your quote and placed your order with your salesperson, the order goes to our graphics department. Here, your applique flag will be designed to scale and a proof will be emailed to your for approval. Just email your artist with any changes or to approve your appliqued flag, and they will then send it to production.
Our production team is a small group of highly skilled seamstresses who will take the templates from the artist and sew together each and every element of the design. Production typically takes 2-3 weeks but your specific timeline will be agreed upon during your quote and order process. Rush orders are often available depending on our current work load.
