Can crest flags be used outside?
Yes, they are specifically designed to be used outdoors but look great in large indoor spaces too. The solid frame is sturdy enough to cope with most winds, and the choice of base and flag material mean they can be made to suit the environment that you intend to display them in. Flags are a temporary form of signage and are generally designed to withstand wind speeds up to 18mp/h (29km/h), Beaufort scale 4. To prolong their life, we would advise taking down outdoor banners where wind speeds exceed this or extreme weather conditions are forecast.
We use a Dye sublimation printing process which transfers the dye directly into the fabric weave to produce longer lasting, vibrant graphics that slows down the fading process.
If flags are being left outside all year round then this will quicken the process, as will washing. As this is the nature of fabric products and can't be avoided, any fading is not covered by our 2 year guarantee.
How long do crest flags last?
They are guaranteed for two years but can last much longer if cared for and stored properly. You can also buy replacement flags without having to buy a new frame.
What is included in the crest flag package?
The package includes the frame, one flag, a base option of your choice, and a carry and storage case. Alternative flags can be printed at extra cost if needed.
Can I use multiple images with the flag frame?
Yes! The flag frame has been designed to be used with interchangeable flags.
