Choosing the right vendor when buying your feather flags

Choosing the right vendor for your flag purchase can be a little confusing. Some of the questions you should be asking are listed below: 

- Do you make your flags in-house? 
- Do you buy your flags from China? 
- How long is your production time? 
- How are your flags printed? 
- What type of poles and stands do you use? 

Many online stores have popped up in the last few years claiming that they make flags for public purchase. If you do a little research, you will find that not everybody that says they make flags, actually have the ability to "make" the flag. These companies source out their flag jobs to a handful of companies that actually make their own flags. There are also a number of companies that buy their flags from overseas and have a one month lead time to get their products. This method works for some people, but for others who work with picky clients or have tight deadlines, choosing a company with their own manufacturing capabilities is a must. 

The pole systems used almost always come from China. Sign supply stores will import hardware and sell to sign companies. There are also different levels of quality when it comes to flags poles and bases. Make sure your vendor can completely describe the pole system they use. It is important that they know what they are selling because the construction of the flag completely depends on the hardware they use.
