Appliqued flags are the original and traditional form of manufacturing flags and banners, it involves layering different coloured knitted fabrics on top of each other, machining round and cutting away the peice of the cloth that is not required, the ‘negative’ of the image. This method uses a specific colour range of knitted polyester, the material being appliqued on and the flag’s woven base material, this means that there are limitations on colour and pantone references cannot be matched, we can provide colour swatches on request of our cloth’s colour range so that nearest matches can be chosen.
This is a time consuming method from creating suitable artwork, plotting the design onto the relevant coloured material, machining each colour and then cutting away the ‘negative’ part of the design, thus it also an expensive option of manufacture.
The end result is a quality crafted sewn flag. For a completely appliqued flag, the best results are achieved with the simplified designs, if your logo is more complex there is the option of digitally printing the logo as a badge and appliquing this onto the woven cloth ground. Appliqued flags are available as a single or double sided flags and can be finished in various ways ready for hoisting.
