Custom printed flags are an effective marketing tool that uses colour and movement to gain attention and visibility. Custom flags are perfect to fly alongside the Canadian and provincial flag. There are a variety of ways to print these, including digital print (acid dye digital printing on nylon), screen printing, and sublimation. At Aurora Flags and Banners, we either screen print or digitally print our flags on 200/210D nylon or knitted polyester. The material and printing method is determined by the client’s budget, the artwork, and the quantity of flags needed. We do use the sublimation printing process, but due to the lower ink penetration, the process is reserved for other fabric printing applications like custom backdrops and table covers.

Custom Printed Flags NylonKnitted Polyester
Custom To You
We offer two fabrics for custom printed flags: 200D nylon and knitted polyester.
Nylon is a premium product that offers maximum durability and better colour penetration (95% bleed through onto the back side). Knitted polyester is a more economical option, although it still offers a great print with approximately 70% bleed-through rate onto the back side.
Flag Finishing Options
Our standard finishing options include rope and toggle, grommets, or a sleeve. With nylon flags, we offer a choice of rope and toggle, grommets, or a sleeve. For knitted polyester, we only offer finishing with grommets or a sleeve. The rope and toggle and grommet flags are sewn with a reinforced header for durability.
Custom printed flags come in a variety of shapes; however, the most common size in Canada is 3’x 6′. The 3’x 6′ size is used for flag poles that are between 20′ and 30′.
See the chart located in our FAQ section for a detailed review of typical flag sizes for typical flag poles.
What People Say
- Roshan Nelson
I had a last minute Job Fair to attend after the 2018 Thanksgiving weekend and contacted Aurora late Thursday afternoon to see if they could help us and meet the impossible Tuesday deadline. On Friday morning, they quickly provided proofs of two retractable high quality banners and a proof of a 3'x8' vinyl banner which was exactly what we wanted and looked great! They sent it to production on Friday and by 4:30pm on Tuesday after Thanksgiving Monday, they were ready for pick-up so we could attend the 7am Wednesday morning Job Fair. Thank you Aurora and all your staff for making it happen in such a short time frame, delivering such high quality and creative professionalism!

The Village of New Maryland has purchased several banners from Aurora over the past two years. They have a great selection of pre-made inventory and they also worked with us to design banners specifically for our municipality. I have found the staff to be very pleasant, helpful, and quick to respond to our inquiries. I have also been impressed with the durability and quality of the banners; they haven't faded and so far none have incurred any damage; even when left up in the winter months. We have had many positive comments on our various banners from both Council and residents, and along with our solar-powered LED light posts and additional beautification efforts, our main road through the Village is now alive with colour throughout the year. We will definitely continue to work with them for any future banner needs. Thank you Aurora Flags & Banners! 5 stars!!
