One Color Single Sided Silk Screened TriPole Flags
These banner flags are just as important as the banner pole they hang from. These are great advertising flags for the TriPole event flag system. They are printed on durable knitted polyester fabric and printed using a specialized silkscreen process see more details in right side column. The inks used have been specially formulated to resist fading and provide a good through print on the backside of the flag.
Displays2go has partnered with one of the world's largest outdoor fabric banner and flag silkscreen printers located in Europe. The print process starts out with a specially designed white polyester mesh fabric and presses ink through the silkscreen on one side and through to the other (back) side. The ink and knitted polyester are designed to allow the image to bleed through the flag. This provides a very bright reverse image on the backside. Ninety percent of all flags are printed utilizing large-sized logo artwork (and not detailed text phrases) to optimize brand recognition when viewed from a distance.

Fabric Silk Screen Printing Process
The flags are printed using large format automated silk screen printing machines. These printing machines allow us to produce each flag accurately and quickly. This means you get a higher quality product for less.
Next the flags are heat treated. This enables the colors to brighten and cures the inks. This is done not only to make the images look better but also to make the inks withstand harsh weather conditions.
Five successive washing cycles brings out the final brightness of the flags and softens the cloth. Oven drying guarantees size stability of the flags.
The flags are trimmed and hemmed before a reinforcing strip is applied to the top and one side of the flags. The grommets are then inserted and the flags are packed up for shipment.
Important Information about choosing a custom flag.
One of the most important premises of this Banner Pole product is the advertising "effect" that wind motion has on the flag.
A subtle "wave motion" blowing through your banner flag is both aesthetically appealing and attracts attention.
To epitomize this point there is a new indoor banner pole on the market in Europe that has a fan in the base to blows a subtle breeze through the banner flag.Our flags are printed on knitted polyester fabric designed specifically for flags.
Know what material your banner flag is being printed on!
Beware of flags printed on vinyl or other heavy weight materials!
We love digitally printed vinyl for indoor banner stands, it is a very good material for this purpose, but it was NOT designed for flags.
Our Vinyl Story:
Before coming to market with our GiantPole and TriPole products, we ordered some sample flags from various vendors. Two of the samples were printed on vinyl.
The first was printed on both sides of the vinyl material. A very popular 12oz vinyl banner material was used and it was printed on a solvent based inkjet printer. This flag hangs like a rigid sheet of material and causes the support arm to sag. It does not blow in light winds and does not create nearly as much motion as the fabric flags we received.
The second vinyl flag was comprised of two pieces of vinyl taped back to back. While this is similar to how we sew two flags together, the edges were left unfinished. When rolled, the wrinkles and creases were formed along the entire length of the flag. This flag was twice as heavy as the first vinyl flag so it barely moved in anything but a strong wind and caused the support arm to sag a great deal. We do not recommend this method to anyone. The flags are too heavy for the system and look horrible.
