How long does a banner flag last?

Your banner flag should last between 6-12 months of outdoor conditions, often longer. Dirt, being buried in snow, and extreme wind conditions will reduce the life span of a particular flag. If your flag becomes damaged it should be taken down immediately and repaired. We recommend purchasing an additional flag which will allow you to swap out your flags for cleaning and repairs. Our poles are very sturdy. If a pole does become damaged by weather conditions replacements are available at a resonable price. Great Value Flags also has periodic specials on replacement flags. Subscribe to our email list here to get in on these great available by email only specials.

 

What is my banner flag going to be made of?

All of our banner flags are custom digital printed full color dye sublimation printed on 100% Polyester. The poles are easy to assemble and provides the optimum amount strength and flexibility.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of single sided and double sided printing?

Single sided printing is the most cost effective way to have your banner produced. The flag banner consists of a single layer of 100% polyester with printing on one side. Single sided flags tend to be more transparent allowing more light through. Banners with single sided printing have the desired printing on one side. The other side will display a faded version of its mirror image.

A double sided flag banner consists of three layers. Two printed outside layers with a light grey lining in the middle. This creates the ability to have the desired image on both sides. Colors can look more vibrant as the flag is not as transparent as a single sided flag banner. Double sided flag banners are heavier and the wind does not pass through as easily as a single sided flag.

What is your return policy / warranty?

Please inspect your banners as soon as your receive them. If you have an defective item please contact Great Value Flag Shop and we will do all we can to make it right.

QUESTION ABOUT THE GRAPHICS DESIGN AND ARTWORK PROCESS:

Can I provide my own artwork?

Yes, you can definitely supply your own artwork. Many products already have links for templates to download in their description. Anytime before or after your purchase you can provide your artwork to us via email to info@greatvalueflags.ca.  For larger artwork files please contact us so we can collaborate on the best way to transfer the art.  Once recieved we will review your artwork and make sure it is ready for large digital print. Here are some tips for your artwork:

  • File types accepted are .PDF, .EPS, high resolution .JPEG, and .AI.
  • Outline all of your fonts for .PDF, .EPS and .AI files
  • link artwork to you files.
  • Art should be submitted in 4 color CYMK for printing not RGB
  • Be aware that the colors represented on your monitor are not always what is produced in print. The best way to get close to a specific color is to provide a pantone or CYMK values you are confident. Spec samples can be ordered prior to large orders. This will likely increase the overall production time though.
