Materials & Printing Processes For Custom Flags & Banners

The right choices make the difference.

Print, Fabricate and Design Your Own Flag With Swirling Silks

For most custom banner and flag projects the right fabric for the job can make all the difference in the world. Yet, fabric choice can be one of the factors least considered when undertaking these projects. This is where the experience of Swirling Silks can help. Tell us your project requirements, applications, colors, etc. and we will know which fabric to recommend to best suit your project needs. Below is a partial list of the fabrics most commonly used in banner and flag applications along with the appropriate color charts where applicable.

Custom Silk Flag Printing & Fabrication Methods

Below is a list of the most common custom printing and fabrication processes for modern silk flags, banners and large format imaging.

  • Digital Dye: Can be printed direct or sublimated on various types of polyester fabrics
  • Acid Dye: Full color permanent dye process with color penetration. Can be printed digital and screen print on nylon and some polyester fabrics
  • Screen Printed flags: Traditional method where each color is forced through a fine mesh screen with a squeegee using pigment inks. We can screen print on white or colored fabrics using many specialty inks, including metallic inks and foils to produce quality screen printed flags.
  • Offset Sublimation: Hi-res sublimation printing for large quantities
  • Inkjet: Direct CMYK printing on vinyl and many other non-porous substrates
  • Applique: Process of sewing layers of nylon fabric onto a background layer using a zig zag stitch creating a hand crafted look
  • Embroidery: Commonly used for ornate and detailed dimensional color and lettering. Can be used to create patches for future application to another fabric or directly sewn onto a fabric or flag.
