For any Black-Back Polyester items, 100mm bleed must be supplied. This allows for any extra material required for hems, as well as shrinkage and movement when printing and cutting.

Our thread colours are black or white. Our sewists will choose the most appropraite colour to complement your graphic.

Currently we can only print up to 3.2 metres (10ft 6in) on the shortest edge, to our standard pricing. Flags above this size will require a bespoke quotation.
