Design guidelines
We recommend using our templates and guides for preparing your print-ready PDF.

You can download our guides and templates in the template section. Remember to delete the template layers before exporting your design to PDF.

If you already have a design, no worries; we accept other file formats, including JPEG, PNG, or EPS.

For photographic content, high-resolution JPEGs are recommended, preferably without compression. For graphics or text-based content, we recommend print-ready, vector-based PDFs. For content that is a combination of graphics and photography, we suggest using print-ready PDFs to ensure the best quality.

Use CMYK as the colour mode.

Prepare your files using CMYK as the colour mode, not RGB. Use colourmode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2) for coated papertypes and colourmode FOGRA47 (PSO Uncoated ISO12647) for uncoated papertypes. If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.

Use the right values for full colour black.

Please note: The material used for a flag is very absorbent therefore the colour can come out lighter than expected. This is especially the case with black. For rich black please use (Cyan 60, Magenta 40, Yellow 40 & Black 100).

Resolution of at least 150 dpi.

Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 150 dpi.

Add 5 mm bleed and keep 40 mm safety margin

During production, there might be a slight cut deviation. To avoid any issues, we recommend the following:

  • Add a 5 mm bleed around all edges of your design.
  • Keep important elements 40 mm away from the edge or folding lines.
Text and fonts specifications (Min. font size is 20 pt)

For this product, the minimum font size is 20 pt. To avoid any issues, we recommend the following:

  • Fonts must be embedded or outlined.
  • If your design contains small black text, make sure it is 100 % black (Cyan: 0 Magenta: 0 Yellow: 0 Black: 100).

Note that we don't check spelling or typographical errors.

Lines should be at least 3 pt.

The lines should be at least 3 pt.

Check your artwork for overprint.

Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint unless you want this effect in your design. You can read more about overprint in our Help Centre.

Frequently asked questions
What is this product? And what can I use it for?
  • Boat flags are a popular product for promoting your brand. A boat flag is a classic flag with a hook and cord that can be hoisted or fastened to a mast. You can personalise the flag with your own logo or design!

  • This product can be used:

  • • To introduce people to your business

  • • To represent your company's identity or brand

What materials can I choose from?
  • Longlife material: Strong 115 gsm fabric perforated with tiny holes. The holes make sure the flag can resist strong winds and a longer life is guaranteed. This material is best used in open areas or beaches.

Which production techniques do we use?
  • For the production of Boat Flags, we use the following technique(s):

  • Sublimation: With this technique, the printing is carried out at a high temperature, where the eco-friendly water based ink seeps directly into the material. The material remains flexible and is waterproof.

What wind power can flags withstand outside?
  • We advise bringing your flags inside if gale force reaches 6. This will greatly improve the lifespan of your flags.

What does wind force mean?
  • Wind force is measured using the beaufort scale. In winds exceeding Beaufort scale 6 (31 mph/49 kph or 27 knots), which corresponds to a "Strong Breeze," your flag should be taken down.
    Remember if it is windy at ground level, it is far windier up a flagpole.

What is the lifespan of Boat Flags?
  • The lifespan of the flag is approx. 3 to 5 months while using it intensively. You can expand the lifespan by bringing the flags inside in harsh weather.

Are the Boat Flags printed single or double sided?
  • Our flags are printed on one side as standard. This means that your logo is visible as a mirror image on the back. The print-through of our flags is around 95%.

How do the colours come out in the print?
  • The colours printed on flag fabrics will never be as sharp as they are on your screen, especially the colour black. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

What is the fastest possible turnaround?
  • The fastest possible turnaround varies depending on the specifications you select, and will always be stated at the bottom of the page. To make sure that your order is delivered at the indicated time, it is important that we receive your file with your design for the product by the stated cut-off time. This way, the product can be moved into production promptly.
    Please note: The delivery date shifts a day every time the deadline for submission has passed. This is also the case if the file is rejected by us and corrected artwork isn't submitted before the next cut-off time.

Which carriers are used for the delivery?
  • For the delivery of your Boat Flags we use multiple carriers. We use our most reliable carriers, which in most cases are UPS or DPD.
    We also use DHL and our own courier service. However, these carriers are only used for certain products (depending on the size, the turnaround and the quantity).

I can't find the product I'm looking for. Can I request a quotation?
  • The Boat Flags chosen in most cases can be selected via our website.

  • If your material type, weight, quantity, size or other specification is not listed, you can request a quotation. It is also possible to request binding in another colour. We will send you our offer within 1 working day. Depending on the complexity, this can take a bit longer.

How do I care for a printed Flag?

Can I wash my flag?

Can I wash my flag?

Flags can get dirty from sand, dust, salt, or mud, which can impact their appearance. No need to worry, you can safely pop your flag into the washing machine! We advise washing with cold water, and highly recommend allowing it to air dry. This is also important to remember if your material has been in the rain. Make sure to wait for it to dry before placing it in storage.

Weather watch

Weather watch

While the materials are weather-resistant, they do have limits. Heavy rain or winds should prompt temporary indoor placement to maintain appearance. Short showers are fine, but prolonged exposure will have an impact. To keep your flag in top condition, we recommend shielding it from harsh weather conditions.
