What are custom flags?Anything printed with your own graphics, text, logos, etc is considered a “custom flag.” Our flags are made from durable polyester material that is made to use outdoor under standard weather conditions, including rain. We use high quality Germain ink that is fights fading, making your flags last much longer. You can pick several finishing options for custom flags, such as grommets and sleeves, which allows you to secure the flag to almost any location. This versatility makes it great to use at multiple locations, such as flag poles, windows, fences, walls, and etc. You can mount them to walls easily with nails, thumb-tacks, or wall-mount hooks. These custom flags are rectangle in shape and come in a few varying sizes. These are often used for residential purposes, such as bedrooms and livings rooms or for smaller display purposes for commercial locations. These are also popular for churches to use for their setting.
How do they differ from feather, rectangle, teardrop, or flag banners?Feather flags, teardrop flag, rectangle flags, and our other flag banners are specialty advertising or business flags that have a distinct shape and use pole pockets on the flag to go onto our flag poles. Our pole kits come either as full aluminum telescopic pieces, or with a flexible fiber-glass tip which bends to the shape of the flag banner. These types of advertising flags do not come with grommets, so they do require a custom fitted pole kit and a mount to display them indoor or outdoors. Sizes typically range from 8ft to 17ft in height. We can custom craft hardware and flags to larger sizes, if needed. Primary use for these flag banners is for business and event promotions. Trade shows are also a popular location.
Is a flag pole included with my purchase of a custom flag?Flagpoles are not included by default for custom flags but you can add them to your order from the upgrade options. We have telescopic poles available for all of our custom flags.
What is the difference between polyester and nylon flags?Nylon material is a thinner softer material that is often used for only solid colors, embroider, or other simply designs. Polyester material on the other had is a tightly meshed material that allows for printing of all types of graphics and high quality polyester is heaver and more durable than Nylon. Nylon flags are made for short term (seasonal) use. They tend to fade and rip much quicker than polyester flags, since they are not as wind resistant. This makes a polyester flag a much better option for outdoor use.
Do you offer flag kits?Yes, you can upgrade your order to include flag poles and mounts of your choice. Do you offer flagpole mounts? Yes, mounts can be purchased from the 3×5 flag’s hardware page or from the drop down options on the product page. Will sun exposure fade the flag? Our custom flags and flag banners are meant to be used outdoors, so avoiding the sun is usually not an option. If you are planning to use them at a few events a year, fading will not be a concern. For long term outdoor use, the flags will fade over time due to prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Fading in this case is not avoidable, but we do use high quality ink which does fight fading. While most flags fade within a few months, ours usually last anywhere from 9 to 12 months, IF you are using the flag outdoors every day for that period of time.
Can the wind blow away my flag?This will depend how well your flag is secured to the flagpole that you have purchased. Be sure to always have a clip to tie your flag down to the pole. Most of our custom flags will come with a small 6” rope at the bottom, which can help you tie them down.
What is your smallest flag size?Our smallest flag size would be our window clip-on flags. They are 12” x 14”. Our largest flag would be restricted in height, which is 5′ (including the 2” sleeve). For the width, you can go as large as a 100ft. Our typical largest size is 5’x8 or 8’x5.
Can I request an odd shape?yes, we can usually finish the flag in various ways. Let us know how you want your flag to be finished and we’ll see if we can make it happen.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ORDERING CUSTOM STANDARD FLAGS
We offer 2×3, 3×5, 4×6, and 5×8.
Our custom standard flags can be made single or double sided!
Our custom flags and flag banners are made of 110gm polyester material, which would be 4oz. This is ideal and the best-tested weight for durability and print quality.
We provide two material options for our custom standard flags: Economy and Premium.
The Economy flags boast a softer feel and lack a middle liner, making them ideal for indoor use or lighter applications. We recommend these flags for poles under 10 feet in height.
On the other hand, our Premium material is heavier and features a vinyl mesh in the middle. These flags are designed for outdoor use, suitable for conditions such as driving at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour, and are best suited for poles over 10 feet tall.
The Economy double-sided flag weighs approximately 1-1.5 lbs, making it easy to fly. However, as previously mentioned, this softer material lacks a liner, making it prone to fraying if used on vehicles or excessively tall poles.
On the other hand, Premium double-sided flags weigh around 2.5 lbs, or slightly more for the larger sizes. These flags are equipped with a central liner, requiring stronger winds for proper flying.

For typical use and with proper care and storing, the lifespan of the flag is 5+ years. Typical use means using the flag for specific events, shows, etc a few times a year. It is advised to store the flag neatly folded at room temperature.
If you are planning to display the flag in direct sunlight for prolonged periods or in severe/adverse weather conditions, it will greatly lessen the lifespan of your flag.

We provide three hardware options for our flags. Two of these options consist of poles with mounts.
The first option is the economy set, identifiable by its eagle top and lower price point. Recommended for short-term use, these poles are not tangle-free.
The second option is our premium set, distinguished by a sphere on top and a sturdier mount, offering a tangle-free experience.
Both the economy and premium sets stand at approximately 6 feet tall.
Additionally, we offer a 10-foot pole set equipped with a ground spike for added stability. All these pole and mount options are compatible with grommets exclusively.
