Our standard feather flags are made from 115gsm knitted polyester. We can also make feather flags / teardrop flags from 135gsm air mesh on request.

Flags are printed on one side with a mirror image on the reverse (the print bleeds all the way through the material). Double sided flags can be made on request (two flags sewn back to back with blanking interliner in the centre).

Are there any hidden extras?

No...all our feather & teardrop flag prices are inclusive of VAT with free UK mainland standard shipping.

Custom Flags

Can you make flags to any size?

Yes, we can make flags as big or as small as you require. NB the largest flag we make from 1 piece of material is 3m wide – anything larger will be made on more than one piece of material & then discreetly sewn together leaving a small seam.

How long does it take to make a custom flag?

We generally quote 5-7 working days from agreement of the artwork, but can usually get flags made quicker on request.

Flag Poles

How do I attached a flag to the telescopic flagpoles?

All the ready made flags on our web site come with eyelets as standard. To attached one of our flags to the telescopic flag poles you will need a pair of flag bungees found on the 'poles & parts' page!

What else do I need apart from the telescopic flagpole?

To attach a flag to the pole you will need a pair of bungees. If you would like the pole to be free standing we sell pole stakes which push into the ground for the pole to slide over. We also sell a pole bag so all the parts can be stored neatly & transported conveniently.
