Custom flags are perfect for businesses and special events but can often be costly. Unfortunately most people don’t have the money to spend on a flag designer and look at creating their own flags at home. It isn’t impossible and it’s incredibly easy to create also. So, how can you make your own flags at home?
Design a Flag on Paper
First things first, you must design your flag and the best way would be to get some paper and pens and start drawing. This is important because you can throw out a few ideas and keep changing it until you have found the perfect design. Banner flags are simple to make but it’s the actual design part that takes most time and it can be frustrating too. Getting a few ideas down on paper can be extremely useful and much easier so that you don’t create a flag and have to throw it away if you don’t like.
Gather the Necessary Materials
Want to make your own flags? Well, it’s easy and you have to choose the right materials. For instance, you can look at silk which would be elegant but not suitable for everyone. However, there are a lot of different materials that could be used to create your homemade flags. If you love the idea of being eco-friendly then you could use recyclable materials. You will need a flagpole, the necessary silks and some patterns and sewing materials if you’re making this by hand.
Print the Flag or Make It By Hand
If you are going to make banner flags by hand then you will need to cut out the background for the flag. Once you have done this, you can add a logo or some graphics by sewing them. This shouldn’t take too long but again you have to be careful. You don’t want to make mistakes and you need to take extra care to avoid the sewing threads from being shown. If you’re screen printing then it’s incredibly easy and you don’t have to sew in any way.
Attach the Flagpoles and Fly Them Proudly
After the flags have been created it will be time to attach the flagpoles which is a lot easier than what you’d think. You could use excess string to attach the flags or glue them on, depending on what you feel is best. Mini flags are probably going to be a lot easier to make than the larger flags but again when you make your own flags you don’t have to spend too much money.
Unleash Your Creative Side
Creating a customized flag from home is a lot easier than you’d think and not as costly either. You can be as creative as you like and use the flag time and time again for each special event. If you wanted to, you could use the flags for sporting events or to promote a business. It really can be a lot of fun and it can be something you’ll enjoy also. Custom flags look great and can make your event even more special.
