Fabric Flag Materials

Types of Fabric Flag Materials: Mirror Fabric and Flag Fabric

By Jana Schaumburg, Marketing Coordinator 

There are two different fabric materials that we print fabric flags on. Both of the fabrics are printed using a direct dye sublimation printing process. This means that the ink goes through the fabric instead of sitting on top of the fabric.

Fabric Flag Materials: Flag Fabric and Mirror Fabric
Flag Fabric Material
The most common fabric flag material is our Flag fabric. The Flag fabric is rated for 3-6 months when used continuously outdoors. Flag fabric has a sheer print. The material is slightly thicker and more coarse than the Mirror fabric. You can see the back side in reverse, but the back side is a little more muted than the Mirror.

Mirror Fabric Material
Mirror fabric is also rated for 3-6 months when used continuously outdoors. The back side is also in reverse, but the back is more vibrant than the Flag fabric. The front side also has slightly richer colors than the Fabric flag material.  Mirror fabric can be used for flags, but it is most commonly used for flying banner displays.
