Flag FAQs

1. How do I set-up artwork for Flags?

Feather and Teardrop Flags: Text and graphics should be placed at least 0.5" from the edge of the hem for safety. Artwork can be wrapped around the pole, but again keep important elements clear of the pole pocket seam and the hems.

Bleed: ensure you have 0.5" on all sides of your artwork, do not add crops.

Pole Flags: Text and graphics should be placed at least 0.5" from the edge of the hem for safety. 4over will professionally hand sew 0.5" hems around the Pole Flag.
