Order Summary

 

Crest Flags Printing from Cheap as Prints

Crest flags, also known as crest banners, provide a cost-effective solution for crafting attention-grabbing signage suitable for both indoor and outdoor settings. Their distinct shape, characterised by gentle curves from top to bottom, serves to elegantly frame graphics, creating a sleek and sophisticated appearance. Whether utilised for advertising premium products at trade shows or enhancing the ambiance of wedding events, crest flags prove versatile in various settings.

Crest flags are printed via a dye-sublimation process, ensuring the reproduction of vibrant and detailed designs. The printing is executed on durable knitted polyester or aero mesh material that is recommended for locations prone to high winds and exposure. The dye-sublimation method not only enhances colour vibrancy but also prevents ink runs, contributing to the longevity of the flag. With a UV lifespan exceeding five years, crest flags maintain their visual appeal and withstand the elements, making them a reliable and stylish choice for a range of promotional and decorative purposes.

As part of our responsibility to nature, we only use sustainable and environmentally friendly recycled textiles made from 100% recycled yarn. Recycled polyester offers a second life to a material that is not biodegradable and would otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Thanks to this innovative recycling process, we save more energy than traditional production, while at the same time supporting the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In this way, we contribute to the construction of a sustainable future in the long term while supporting recycling with a circular economy.

Base Options for Crest Flags

Choosing the correct base for your crest flag will ultimately depend on various conditions like where it will be deployed, portability, size, and condition of use. Each base has been designed for specific types of applications whether it is for short-term or long-term use. Depending on the size of the flag, for most occasions you can opt for a cross-base, providing it is for indoor display. For more stable-looking outdoor displays, we recommend upgrading to our heavy-duty water-based options.

  • Cross Base

    Cross Base

    Cross bases offer a low-cost and convenient solution for any indoor soft or hard ground display. The base takes up minimal floor space and it will not detract attention away from the advertisement on the flag. The simple design of the cross base means it’s lightweight and can be collapsed, making it practical to deploy, store, and transport. Suitable for all flag shapes but recommended for flags no taller than 3.2m tall.

  • Ground Spike

    Ground Spike

    Ground spikes offer a durable solution that will anchor your display securely in place, making it the perfect choice for use in fields and soft ground. The base is manufactured from chrome-finished steel, meaning it won’t rust and will stand firm in strong winds even on uneven ground. Please note the ground spike is not suitable for loose soil or wood chips and the ground must be flattened. Not recommended for large or extra-large poles.

  • Double Ground Spike

    Double Ground Spike

    Double ground spikes offer the ultimate solution for larger and heavier poles. It is perfect for driving into compact terrains and ideal for any outdoor soft ground display. The sturdy chrome steel design means it is rust-proof and built to last. The stake is placed into the ground, creating a stronger foundation to hold the flag. The sharp pointed end makes it easier to hammer into the ground, therefore creating a simple, yet practical display. Additionally, the flagpole securing spindle is moulded to the ground spike with 360-degree rotation, thus enabling the flag to be viewed from all directions. Since it is driven into the ground, the immediate perimeters are clear of trip hazards or visually obstructive weighting rings, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. Please note the double ground spike is not suitable for loose soil or wood chips and the ground must be flattened. Suitable for all flag shapes and sizes up to 5m tall and can withstand wind speeds of up to 18mph.

  • Drive on Foot Base

    Drive on Foot

    The drive-on-foot base is perfect for use in forecourts, car showrooms, or outdoor events. The foot is manufactured from heavy-duty galvanised steel and built to last. It works by driving a vehicle onto the foot, ensuring it is on firm and level ground, and the vehicle will act as a counterweight to the flag and pole. With the extra weight of a vehicle, the drive-on-foot base is suitable for indoor and outdoor use with any height flag pole and is supplied complete with a rotating spigot.

  • Water Filled Base

    Water Filled

    Water filled bases are recommended where transport and carrying weights are a constraint. The base is moulded from durable polyethylene making it easy to carry to your desired location. Suitable for indoor or outdoor flat surface display and is available in 15L, 20L, and 30L capacities. The water-fill base is suitable for all flag shapes and sizes up to 5m tall.

FAQ's

  • What are crest flags?

    Crest flags are specialised flags featuring a distinctive shape characterised by gentle curves from top to bottom. They are commonly used for creating eye-catching indoor and outdoor signage, providing a sleek and sophisticated appearance that frames graphics effectively.

  • Where can crest flags be used?

    Crest flags are versatile and find applications in a range of settings. They are ideal for advertising high-end products at trade shows, adding a touch of elegance to wedding events, or serving as promotional signage for businesses and organisations.

  • What materials are used in crest flag printing?

    Crest flags are printed using a dye-sublimation process on durable materials such as knitted polyester or aero mesh. The 110gsm polyknit fabric has a silk finish and is ideal for any indoor or outdoor display. The 200gsm aero mesh fabric has a stronger structure and is perforated with tiny holes. The holes allow high winds to pass easily, thus guaranteeing a longer life span. This material is best suited for open outdoor areas and beaches.

  • What sizes are available for crest flags?

    Crest flags are available in a range of sizes, from smaller options at 2.4 meters tall to larger XL sizes reaching up to 5 meters in height. The size selection depends on your particular advertising requirements and the visibility you aim to achieve.

  • What is meant by clean-cut and hemmed finished crest flags?

    Both finishing choices incorporate elastic around the sides with a trim-to-colour finish. However, the clean-cut option is advisable for short-term events, while the hemmed finish, with its double 10mm hem, is better suited for long-term displays, such as a garage forecourt.

  • What wind speed can crest flags withstand in outdoor settings?

    If the wind speed reaches 35mph or attains a gale force of 7, it is recommended to bring the crest flag indoors. The incorporation of aero mesh material (beach air mesh) in the printing process enhances durability, making these flags particularly suitable for areas susceptible to windy conditions.

  • What material is the flagpole made from for crest flags?

    The flagpole is constructed from fiberglass to enhance both strength and longevity.

  • Do crest flags come with bases?

    Certainly, crest flags can be purchased with or without bases. A variety of base options are offered, encompassing cross-type bases, ground spikes, double ground spikes, drive-on-foot bases, and water-fill options with capacities of 15L, 20L, or 30L.

  • What are the recommended base options for crest flags?

    Your selection of a base depends on your display requirements and the location. Common base choices include cross-type bases for stability, ground spikes for soft ground, double ground spikes for larger and heavier poles, drive-on-foot bases for forecourts, and water-fill bases for situations where weight constraints are a concern.

  • What is the diameter of the supplied flagpole for crest flags?

    The diameter of the accompanying flagpole is approximately 2cm.

  • How will the print appear on single sided crest flags?

    On single sided crest flags, the printing enables your design to appear as a mirrored image on the reverse side. The print-through of the flag is approximately 60%.

  • Is it better to opt for single or double sided crest flags?

    For regular or short-term use, it is recommended to choose single sided crest flags. However, for elevated pole displays or prolonged usage, it is advisable to opt for double-sided crest flags.

  • What is the printing process for double sided crest flags?

    Double-sided crest flags consist of two knitted flags with a blockout membrane enclosed between them. The three layers are intricately stitched together, creating a unified and supplied item.

  • Can crest flags be washed if it becomes dirty or stained?

    To clean crest flags, use a washing machine with a 30° wash and regular household detergent. Ensure the flag is fully dry before storing, opting for flat drying, and avoid tumble drying, ironing, dry cleaning, or using bleach.

  • What is the UV lifespan of crest flags?

    Crest flags produced through dye-sublimation printing boast a UV lifespan exceeding five years. Nonetheless, prolonged exposure to UV rays and air pollution can result in gradual discoloration, potentially causing white sections of the flag to turn grey. It is advisable to carefully choose the location for your flag display, considering these factors.

  • What is the life expectancy of the crest flag itself?

    Crest flags, under intensive use in standard conditions, generally have an average lifespan of around 12 months. To extend their longevity, it’s advisable to store the flags indoors during adverse weather conditions. Taking this precaution can significantly contribute to preserving the quality and durability of the crest flags over time.

  • What is the best way to maximise the life span of the crest flag?

    Avoid placing the display in awkward positions or near sharp objects. Ensure ample space for the flag to rotate freely, and address any frayed edges by trimming, reinforcing, and re-hemming them. In adverse weather conditions, particularly during heavy rain and high winds, dismantle the flag to prevent increased weight on the pole.
