Finishing

Finishing is for flags is pretty standard. However, we do lots of custom work and it's worth knowing that there are lots of options out there. Below is a diagram that will hopefully help with visualizing some of those options. Different fabric also lend themselves better to some finishings than others. For example, DuraMatte is best when it's heat cut or even just cut. When you add a hem to a fabric like DuraMatte you take away from the beautiful flat finish that it's known for. As with everything else, this is why Flags Unlimited is here to help. We know our fabrics and can help guide your decision to arrive at the best solution.
