Q. How do I assemble my Pole?

Q. How are your flags printed?
A. Our flags are dye-sublimated on one side. The print goes all the way through so that what you see is reversed on the back. With the exception of double-sided car flags, our flags are not double-sided.
Q. Can you send me a sample?
A. We do not have samples available. What we ask is that you purchase one of each through our website, and when you place a large wholesale order, we will reimburse you for your online order.
Q. Do you make custom flags?
A. Yes! Please view our Custom Flag Information page.
Q. How long should my flag last?
A.With such variation in degrees of usage, constantly changing weather patterns, and different climate conditions where displayed, it is not easily measured how long a flag will last. The US Government generally expects a polyester, nylon or cotton flag to last approximately 90 days based on daily usage from sunrise to sunset. Experience has shown that for some, a flag flown 24 hours a day will last considerably shorter than one flown only during daylight. It's unfortunate that flags can't last forever. Exposure is harsh, but a little TLC can increase the life of your flag. Flags Importer is a wholesaler, and we offer quantity discounts. This allows customers to replace their flags 2-3 times a year without reordering.
Q. Can I print on these flags/on both sides?
A. You can print/dye sublimate on our flags, but as they are single sided flags they can only be printed on one side (with the image visible on both sides of the flag). For pressing directions we recommend following the directions for your sublimation paper and ink. Our team typically presses at 200 degrees Celsius. The end result is dependent on the printer, ink, paper and heat press machine. Because of these variants in the process we cannot advise on the sublimation process and we do not have a warranty for products altered in this way.

A. Orders can be placed via our website for small retail orders by adding the desired items to your shopping cart and proceeding to checkout.
