Care & Use of the Tear Drop Flags
Tear drop flags are great signage solution for indoor and outdoor displays. The fabric is waterproof and the frame is flexable making it pefect for long term outdoor flags.
The Tear drop flag poles and graphic are fairly strong and can withstand a max of 37mph winds. In the event of extreme weather we recommend bringing your flags inside for safe keeping until the weather clears up. If left in adverse weather conditions your flags can become permanently damaged or cause damage to surrounding property.
- Your printed fabric graphic will last many years with normal care.

What base should I use?
Your feather flags will come with a spike base, which is used for outdoor applications. You use the spike to ancor the flag into the ground. The X-base is an add on and these can be used indoors or outdoors, however, if you plan to use the X-base outside you will need to make sure it's weighted down because the wind can knock it over easily.
If my flag is single sided what does it look like on the back?
Our single sided flags consist of one layer of sheer fabric, the front print will see-thru the backside and you'll get a reverse image on the back side. We do offere double sided printed flags, these flags come with two printed fabric sides and a light blocking layer in the middle.
How many colors or details can I use in my artwork, will it cost extra?
You can use any number of colors or any amount of detail in your artwork without incurring any additional fees. We print our fabric with dye sublimation technology in full color and no matter how many colors or how detailed the artwork is, it won't affect the cost of the sign.
What color profile should I use in my artwork?
We accept CMYK, RGB, Mixed colors and Pantone colors. We use a 4-color process, and each color profile will be converted to meet the original coloring as closely as possible.
When will I get a proof?
Typically, you'll receive a proof via email from our graphics department within 1-2 hours of placing the order, if the order is placed during regular business hours of 8:30am - 5pm EST, Monday - Friday, with the exception of holidays. If you place your order during off hours/days, you'll receive a proof 1-2 hours from the time we re-open.
I don't have a print ready file or software to set up artwork, how can I get artwork set up?
Unfortunately, we don't offer artwork set up in house. Good websites to find graphic designers are fiverr.com or 99designs.com. If you are not able to find a designer please contact us and we can refer you to freelance designers we work with often.
I realized I sent the wrong file when I received the proof, what do I do?
No worries, this is why we send proofs! If you realized something is wrong in your artwork or sent the wrong file, simply respond to the graphics proof email, and let them know if you are sending a new file or have changes to your design online artwork. Our graphics team will always send you updated proofs, and nothing goes to print without your approval.
I approved of the proof then realized it was wrong, what do I do?
We work fast over here, once the proof is approved it moves to production quickly. If you realize the proof was wrong after approving contact us as soon as possible. We can try to holt production if your order has not started to print yet. Once it starts printing it will be hard to pull it back at that point so the sooner you can let us know the better chances, we have to stop it.
