Hands-on design process with personal attention!
Prior to production, and soon after your order is placed, a member from our design team will send you a mock up of your design for your approval to confirm you are happy with the layout and coloring. The designer will contact you via email and go back and forth with you until you are 100% satisfied with the design and you deem it approved for production:)
Grommets VS Sleeves?
For a breakdown of Grommets vs Sleeves please click here -->
*All Sleeves are standard 1.5 inches wide and can accommodate a .875 inch pole diameters or below. If you need something custom please mention your pole diameter in the design notes with your order.
What dimensions does my custom design need to be?
For optimum quality, .eps or .ai files are preferred, however high quality png, pdf and jpeg files work as well. Designs should be saved in CMYK rather than RGB in order to see a true color representation of your print. (http://bit.ly/RGBvsCMYKcolors)
Optimal image resolution is 300px/in and optimal canvas size for self created flags is 3000px high X 5000px wide for 3x5 flags. For any other size please have it be 1000 pixels for every foot of flag.
Prior to production, we always send you a mock up of your design for your approval to confirm you are happy with the layout and coloring.
We will not move forward with production until you have "APPROVED" the mock up. So please check your email and spam to prevent any production delays if you need your item to arrive on time.

If you don't have photoshop or illustrator you may use an app called Logo Foundry. You can download it here→> https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/logo-foundry-logo-maker-logo/id1086084610?mt=8
What are the flag poles made of and are they approved for music festivals?
Yes! Flag poles are made from telescoping aluminum and have a foam handle and grip. All flag poles are approved at most major music festivals. We recommend that you double check the 'acceptable items' list for your festival before you go just in case.
How does my flag attach to the pole?
All flags come with a choice of metal grommets in each corner or a sleeve on the left side with rope for easy flag pole attachment. For the flag poles we sell, we recommend going with the sleeve option as it will be a better fit for our poles.
Flag Material Upgrades
For single sided flags we offer upgraded material options of 130G, 240G, & Satin.
130G is slightly thicker than the standard material and has about a 40%-50% color see through on the back side.
240G is our heaviest flag material and has about a 20-30% color see through on the back side.
Satin material offers a smooth glossy finish which is perfect for photographs and art. Satin has about a 20-30% color see through on the back side.
What is the difference between single and double sided?
Single sided flags have close to 80-90% visibility on the opposing side and are a bit thinner and lighter. Keep in mind that for single sided your image will be mirrored on the other side as you will simply be looking at your image from the other side. Double sided flags have 100% visibility of each logo on each side and a liner in the center so you will only see each image with 100% visibility. Double sided flags will have the EXACT same image printed on both sides. The image will NOT be "flipped" unless you have requested this in your order. The grommets or sleeve will be on the right side of the flag when looking at the back side of the flag. Please keep this in mind when instructing the design team for your flag creation.
Is my single sided design visible on both sides?
Single sided flags have about 90% visibility through the opposing side! Just remember your words and images will be mirrored on the backside!
What is the average production/delivery time?
Since all of our flags are custom it is difficult to guarantee delivery by a certain date, but we will try our best to make sure you get your flag on time. Certain custom designs require more design and setup attention and any delay in the design/mock up approval by the customer will result in production delays. We print flags and masks that have designs confirmed by the customer first. The best way to ensure you get your flag on time is to respond to our emails from the design team as soon as humanly possible:)
For Super Rush Shipping, our AVERAGE turn time is 7-10 business days AFTER the proof is confirmed by the customer via email. The Standard Shipping option takes on average 14-21 business days after design approval by the customer. Keep in mind that these are average times and that we are still at the mercy of turn-times by postage services, our own production line, holidays, weekends, the possibility of bad weather and the design process itself. Typically, you will receive your custom merchandise faster than the average times quoted.
If the window is extremely small and you absolutely need your order by a specific date please email us so we can check current production times for you and cater to your needs. > Info@FestFlags.com
Washing: All custom flags are machine washable! Please make sure to wash on cold and to not use harmful detergents. All washing machines are different so we do recommend hand washing whenever possible using a solution of water and a little vinegar just to be safe!
Ironing: Use the Polyester/Low iron setting.
All of our flags have been tested to be waterproof and are safe for indoor/outdoor use!
We have an excellent track record when it comes to making the perfect product, but in the rare case that a return of items is necessary, we always make things right with our clients. Due to the custom nature of the products, the high set up fees we incur, and the fact that custom merchandise is not re-salable to other customers, all custom order sales are final. We are only able to issue refunds if the design that was emailed and approved by the customer greatly varies with the finished product received. Slight variations in color and clarity do occur when images provided by the customer are not of highest resolution quality. Ie: Pictures of other images, unofficial non-vectorized clip art from the internet, ink drawings, paintings, patches, photos, images not created by digital software, and any other small images that when get blown up to flag size, lose their quality. These examples do not warrant a refund of the product and will not be considered flawed merchandise.
Please look carefully at your final design and the orientation of the flag (horizontal or vertical) before you approve us to move forward with production. If you have any questions about the design of your custom merchandise please ask them BEFORE you approve your design for print. YOU control the design process:) Once the design is approved by you the production process has started. Feel free to hit us up anytime at Info@FestFlags.com
Thank you for your understanding.
