Can I hang my custom felt pennants outside?
We don’t recommend hanging felt pennants outside. Unlike some of our other materials that are specially created to withstand the elements, felt does not do well outside. It is extremely moisture absorbent, which means it can quickly become wet and soggy after one rain. It can even become wet and soggy in high moisture environments, even if it doesn’t rain. We are proud to say that our innovative printing processes will ensure your print stays true! However, it will tear easily when wet, so it’s a better idea to display our felt pennants indoors.
Do pennant flags come in different material choices?
All pennant flags utilize the same compacted felt material. That’s what makes them traditional felt pennants!
We can do a lot of different things with that same material choice, though. We start with white felt, then print on them using PMS colors. That means we can literally create felt material in any hue. That’s a big deal! It isn’t uncommon for some flag manufacturers to make you choose from existing felt colors before enhancing your custom felt pennants with your image. In contrast, all you have to do is tell us the specific colors you want to use, and we’ll create custom colored felt material just for you.
Can I choose different images for the front and back of each pennant?
Absolutely! However, because it requires another trip through our manufacturing process, there is an additional cost associated with double sided designs. You have the choice of keeping costs low by printing the same design on both sides, or you can pay a bit more and get different designs on each side.
It is important to think about how you will be displaying your custom felt pennants. If your pennants will end up being hung on the wall, it’s much more cost effective to print on one side of the pennant, leaving the other side blank.
What happens if I don’t like the design on the free proof?
Yes! It’s all done with our online designer. This easy tool allows you to create your own digital proof without the back-and-forth of traditional design methods.
This method is only recommended for people who are relatively tech-savvy and know exactly how they want their custom felt pennants to look. If you need help with your design, or if you don’t particularly like spending time on the computer, feel free to contact us, and we’ll create the design for you.
How do you recommend I take care of my felt pennants?
It isn’t recommended to put your felt pennants in the washing machine. It will compromise the shape and appearance of your flag.
To keep them from needing to be washed, try and keep them from getting dirty in the first place. Light soiling can be wiped away with a damp cloth. To keep the colors looking bright and crisp, keep your pennants out of direct sunlight.
How long will they last with the right care?
We only use the highest quality materials and printing processes when manufacturing our custom felt pennants. When properly cared for, they will last for years.
Can I customize the number of loops on my felt pennants?
There isn’t anything we can’t customize at The Flag Makers, which means we can absolutely customize the number of loops on your pennant flags!
The standard number of loops is two, but you can add as many loops to your custom felt pennants as you would like.
How long does it take to get a free estimate?
We strive to offer fast turnaround times on our flags, and we strive to offer fast turnaround times on free estimates too! All estimates are sent within 24 hours, but you shouldn’t be surprised if you receive your quote sooner rather than later. We have staff on-hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer your questions, create designs, and print flags.
What are some ways for a business to use custom felt pennants?
You’re only limited by your imagination when it comes to ways you can use custom felt pennants! They are extremely popular at elementary, middle, and high schools, and they are popular on college campuses. They are often created for sports teams, but their customizable nature makes them great for science fairs, sororities, and other student organizations and events.
Felt pennants can also be used to advertise. They can be used to sponsor local events, and they can be used as handouts. Many businesses have also found them a fun and unique way to reward customers, clients, and employees. They are a great way to congratulate others on a job well-done, if you’re tired of handing out traditional trophies.
