Supplying Artwork

To ensure we are able to print your flag as quickly as possible, please make sure you have completed the following steps. If you require us to match to certain colours such PANTONE, please supply us with either a PANTONE number or phsyical swatch.

  • All images are embedded in the file
  • All fonts are converted to outlines
  • You are using CMYK colour mode
  • Any photographs have a resolution of at least 100dpi

Important note: It is vital that you leave a 60mm safe area in from the edge of your artwork. Important items such as text that needs to be legible or images that you don’t want obscured should not be placed here.

Design Service

We understand that not everybody has access to professional design software so if you are unable to provide us with artwork then our design team are more than happy to help. Depending on the complexity of your design there will be a small charge involved.

To start with the best thing to do is send us any text and high quality logos or photos that you would like on your flag and describe in as much detail as possible how you would like your flag to look. Things to note down would be colours, fonts, photos and text. If you are unsure of the quality of your images, send them anyway and we can advise.

Our design team will get to work on your design(s) and send back a proof for your approval, at this point you are able to make any changes you feel are neccessary and we can re-send an updated proof. Upon approval of the final design (you are responsible for checking spelling/phone numbers etc) your flags will be ready to print!
