Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what printer to use?
This is a good question. The answer depends on your printing needs. You’ll want a printer with the right services and price for your job. Some printers don’t handle large-format printing. They therefore can’t design or print banners or flags. Head to websites to research or call printers direct.
Do printers have to be qualified?
It’s best to choose a printer with specific experience in banners and flags. Remember, not all printers handle this. Ask about education, training, technical expertise and experience with banners and flags.
Is it cheaper to have my printing done overseas?
Printing overseas isn’t always cheaper. Before you go overseas, assess all risks. Check that the company is ‘real’ and that they can communicate clearly to you in English. Also check how they intend to deliver and what happens if you don’t get what you expect. Remember that using local supports local. It also guarantees you can meet someone in person if a problem arises.
How much does it cost to have a banner or flag printed?
This varies on many factors like the size and style of your banner or flag. Factors also include material, hardware and if you need graphic design services. Deadline and delivery location can also influence cost. You might want to get more than one quote. This will give you a feel for the market and get you a competitive, fair price. When asking a printer to quote, provide the same specs. This way, you can compare apples-to-apples.
Do printers follow environmentally friendly practices with banners and flags?
Today, more printers operate to protect the environment. This includes through choice of material, environmentally friendly inks and printing techniques. Some printers are more ‘green’ than others. If environmentally responsible printing practices are important, ask the printer how they print to protect the environment.
