Our Family Crest Flags are made by using our State-of-the-Art Jet Flo process. The great thing about this process is it allows you to be as creative as you want and at the same time use as many or as little colors as you desire for the same price. In comparison, pricing for screen printing is determined by the amount of colors you have so printing 5 colors will more expensive than 1. Dye-Sublimation eliminates that totally. 8,000 colors costs as much as 1 color. Also with Jet Flo you able to achieve gradients (fading of colors) with no problem. Since we use 1 of only 50 machines in the entire world that prints this way, we can literally duplicate almost any image!
Excellent for both outdoor & indoor applications, the material we use is Super-Polynex ( It is the best & most durable material available on the market today for this process). The material starts out white and then your image is printed directly onto the Super-Polynex (using only the highest quality UV protected inks) which in turn transforms the white material into the colors of your design. On a double-sided flag or banner the full image appears on both sides.
Custom crest flags will further strengthen family unity.
A family crest is a form of identification and many people see this as a part of their personal heritage. These were formerly used as an expression of aristocracy, but with the evolution of times, family crests were adapted even by laymen. Family crests are a form of recognizing the existence of a family or clan. It is also a manifestation of their national or civic pride.
In the middle ages, heraldy is used to distinguish fully armored knights on the battle or tournament fields.
