Here at Zephyr we can produce a forestay flag for your Yacht Club or racing event in various substrates. We utilise both digital printing and silk screen printing in the production of these large flags. The Flags can be finished with rope and toggle or the specific forestay finish with clips to keep the flag aligned to the forestay rope. The Forestay flags provide a large space and opportunity for corporate branding at regatta events.
Our most common substrate is knitted zephpol, (knitted polyester 110g) usually printed as a single thickness flag, the knitted polyester helps keep these large flags lightweight despite their scale. We also have the option of the more traditional woven polyester (155g), again this is printed as a single thickness flag with the image reading correctly from one side and mirror image on the reverse. Double sided flags are not recommended for this type of flag.
We are constantly asked for harder wearing flags, flags that remain intact for much longer avoiding expensive site visits to change flags and environmentally friendly by printing less flags. Our solution is our Zephpol IEP Intelligent Engineered Polyester) a breakthrough against natural wear and tear; engineered cloth that protects against the elements. Single thickness 155g flags printed from each side to give enhanced graphic – reading correctly from one side and mirror image on the reverse.
There is of course an initial high outlay for flags of such quality and longevity but recouped handsomely over their lifetime. We have tested the IEP cloth at coastal locations proving the longer lifespan and resistance to harsher conditions.
