Frequently Asked Questions
HOW ARE YOUR FLAGS BETTER?
Our flags are made from REAL poly china silk. They are softer, lighter, and easier to spin than most flags on the market today. They are dye sublimated on BOTH sides, NOT digitally printed on one side for more vibrant colors that will last longer. You WILL see and feel the difference!
WHAT IS THE BAND TODAY CHALLENGE?
We know our flags are better, and want to convince you. We will provide a sample flag of your design at NO CHARGE in less than two weeks for an “Apples vs. Apples” comparison against any other company’s silk. Will our competitors do the same?
WHAT IS DYE SUBLIMATED PRINTING?
Dye-sublimation is a special printing process capable of creating amazingly vivid and sharp full color fabric prints. Specially formulated inks are first printed, in reverse, on to sublimation transfer paper. The paper prints are then pressed together with the target fabric using high heat (around 400°F) and pressure in a specially designed sublimation heat press. During this pressing process, the inks 'sublimate' from the paper directly into the fibers of the fabric. As soon as the transfer is complete, the image is completely impregnated into the fabric and can be washed, dried, and ironed without losing quality.
