3. Quality
 
Q- How do your flags and buntings compare to others on the market?
A- We pride ourselves on our high quality. We get very few complaints and are often praised on the quality of our products. We like to establish long term relationships with our customers, so it is not in our interest to sell poor quality items.

A- Woven polyester unless stated otherwise. We also sell a range of nylon flags, which are a heavy duty option.
 
Q- Can the flags and bunting be used outside?
A- Yes, but we advise not leaving them out in bad weather. We also advise taking bunting down in harsh wind or rain, as it can fray or become worn. There is no such thing as a permanent outdoor solution.

A- All of our items are sent in individual polybags, with a label. We can supply them with barcode labels if these are needed for your system.
