Got a question about our process? Find out here

What resolution should my artworks be?

When printing, the optimum print resolution for digital printers is 300 PPI. Blurring and pixelization will occur if a file is designed with a resolution less than 300 PPI. You should not, however, design with a resolution more than 300 PPI. There will be no change in print quality as far as the eye can perceive. It will also significantly increase the size of your file (increasing file upload/transfer time).

We usually suggest printing 300 PPI drawings, however we understand that you may not have the capacity to modify your designs. If you are unable to print your files at 300 PPI, you will need to take certain steps to guarantee that a lesser resolution will work for you.

Before you begin creating your file, we suggest that you set the resolution in your graphics editor (for example, Photoshop) to 300 PPI. Blurring/pixelation will still occur if the resolution is increased after the start.

Where can I pickup my printing jobs?

Pick-up is available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. During business hours, you may always fill out our contact form and we will contact you within one hour. We have two sites in New York City’s downtown area. Check which is more convenient: Manhattan’s SOHO district or Brooklyn’s Bensonhurst neighborhood. Our offices are both readily accessible by vehicle and train.

Every printing project in New York City requires a high level of quality and consistency.

Our knowledgeable and courteous guidance, coupled with our creative designers and skilled printing team, provide our customers with a service that will exceed their expectations. See for yourself by visiting one of our New York offices.

Do you check the artworks before printing?

Before printing, our staff double-checks all of the work. If we run into any issues with the files, we’ll let you know and show you how to alter the format. Please keep in mind that color and size mode conversions will be done automatically without any input from you.

We examine the drawings throughout the analysis.

– if the files are in one of the acceptable file types (PDF, JPG, TIFF, EPS or PS).
– if the file provided is greyscale (only if you have purchased a color print)
– if the file is the proper size (otherwise, we will scale your work to the required size, however this may result in a loss in quality). There will be no extra bleeding added to the procedure).
– if drill lines have been defined
– if the correct fonts have been included in the file

Why do my artworks require bleed?

All files should have a 2mm bleed on either side to guarantee that there are no white spots on the printed output. This implies that your design should always be 2mm bigger than the actual print format (including pictures and graphics). Failure to do so may result in minor differences, such as white margins. Place typefaces and important components of your design at least 3mm away from the final format (not counting bleeding) and avoid using edges as edges in layouts to guarantee that they are visible.

Optional: If providing data in an open format for printing, the bleed should be 4mm on each side (e.g., A4 size including bleed should be 301214mm). – Please prepare a file with 3mm bleed on either side if submitting files for presentation folders, banners, monthly calendars, packaging, or any other promotional technology items. – Envelopes should have a 1mm bleed on both sides. The elastic frames made of cloth must be bled 15mm.

Please refer to our artwork instructions if you need more information.

What filetypes do you accept for artwork?

JPG, PDF, EPS, TIFF, AI, PSD and PS (PostScript) are among the file types that may be uploaded

Ensure that your PDF file is saved in normal PDF/X format (PDF/X3 or PDF/X1a) straight from your graphics software. When saving artworks, select the “1.3 compatibility” option to prevent issues with layers and transparencies during the printing process.

If you’re transmitting TIFF files, keep the number of layers to a minimum.

Please do not utilize pre-separated data from DCS EPS to prevent color variations or issues with the printed picture.

Are you an environmentally friendly printer?

We certainly are! We provide the most comprehensive selection of soy ink-based eco-friendly printing goods in New York, including recycled business cards, brochures, presentation folders, sales sheets, stationery, catalogs, flyers, calendars, and more. Our regular stock is now recycled paper.

The printing sector has a bad reputation for environmental stewardship, with excessive use of water and energy, paper waste, and the usage of volatile chemicals that result in hazardous waste in the past. One of New York Print’s main priorities is environmental protection, and we try to put our world first.

Here’s how Gorilla Printing works on its footprint

– Using soy-based inks as standard
– Using recycled paper stocks as standard
– Printing techniques that decrease paper use, such as duplex printing
– Modern equipment that consume less energy
– Elimination of hazardous and volatile compounds
– We recycle our printing plates, press blankets, bottles, cans, and containers.
– We recycle obsolete equipment and computer components.

Discover More about Spirit Flags

Custom spririt flags dye sublimated with UV print on 4 oz polyester cloth are a great way to show your school spirit. A flagpole made of aluminium is available for purchase. Perfect for cheerleading squads, football games, and pep rallies, among other things!

What Are Spirit Flags and What Do They Mean?

Spirit flags are big polyester flags that are often seen at high school and college athletic events, particularly football games. These flags include a vertical pole pocket and pole, which allows cheerleaders, mascots, and others to run around the field with the personalised spirit flag during timeouts, halftime, and pre-game events.

These flags are also a fantastic addition to any cheerleading team, mascot, or pep rally and are a terrific way to express school pride. Our spirit flags are dye sublimated printed, which means they’ll last a long time and may be reused. The design is completely adjustable, allowing you to create exactly the appearance you want for your team or school. Spirit flags are available in a number of sizes, with the most common being 3’x5′, 4’x6′, and 5’x8′. We have a maximum size of 8′ 10″ x 8′ 10″ available (106″ x 106″).

Field runner flags, cheer flags, and even battle flags are all terms used to describe spirit flags.

Make sure your flag is clean before storing it. If the flag is filthy, spot clean it using a non-abrasive cloth and a fabric friendly detergent. If your flag need a thorough clean, machine wash it in cold water on a gentle cycle. Bleaching your flag will result in irreversible harm. Allow your flag to dry naturally. Your flag will be harmed by dryers and irons. Fold your flag and place it in the bag or container to keep it. During storage, don’t put anything on top of your flag. Both the dismantled pole parts and the flag (depending on size) can be kept in the bag if you purchase a pole and a bag.

What are the materials used to make your spirit flags? What is the thickness of them? Are there any other thicknesses or materials available?

The polyester used to make our spirit flags is 4 oz. High-resolution printing is possible with this material, which is both robust and lightweight. We’ve discovered that this is the finest material for spirit flags, and we don’t currently provide any other options.

What’s the difference between a field runner flag and a spirit flag?

Spirit flags are also known as field runner flags, and they are the same thing. Cheer flags, captain’s flags, spirit runner flags, battle flags, and letter flags are some other frequent names for spirit flags. All of these phrases refer to a flag on a pole with a custom emblem and/or team name that is typically carried across the field by a mascot or cheerleader during sports events, especially high school and college football games.

Is it possible to have my spirit flag printed on both sides? Is it possible to have distinct designs on each side?

Yes and yes again. By default, our spirit flags are single-sided, but we also offer double-sided flags. If you want your logo or design to appear on both sides of your flag, use our design tool’s “Double Sided” option. Depending on your taste, you may next upload the same or a different file on the back side (click “Show Back Side”) of your flag. The following question clarifies the distinctions between single-sided and double-sided spirit flags.

Is there anything I should know about the distinctions between single-sided and double-sided flags?

Yes. For single and double sided field runner flags, there are two major distinctions. The first is the flag’s transparency. Double-sided flags are far more opaque than single-sided flags. From the reverse side of the flag, your design will be visible, but not perfectly. Nonetheless, we’ve seen single-sided flags used by several high schools and even universities during football games. Due to a liner put between the two sides, double-sided flags are not transparent. This liner avoids bleed through on the opposite side of one design or the other. Please keep in mind that the grey lining may cause lighter coloured flags to lose some of their vibrancy. In our image gallery, you can observe the difference in transparency between the two flag kinds. Furthermore, the double-sided flags depicted on this page are white “Highland Rams” flags. The grey lining has a minor influence on the white section of the flag, as can be seen. What you should pick in terms of openness is mostly a question of personal choice. Both will be stunning!

Another factor to consider is the flags’ weight. Flags with only one side will be much lighter than flags with two sides. This implies they’ll be simpler to handle and fly more smoothly than their double-sided counterparts. Due to the above-mentioned liner, the latter will be heavier and less manoeuvrable. Though, as previously said, the images on this website were double-sided, and as can be seen, the flag is still functional!

Whatever option you select, we’re certain you’ll enjoy your own field runner flags for years to come!

I require assistance in the creation of my spirit flag. Are you able to assist me?

Absolutely! The process of designing your spirit flag is made simple with our user-friendly design tool. However, if you continue to have problems or want assistance, you are welcome to use our free design services. Simply complete a request form, and a member of our design team will contact you to begin working on your pride flag design.

Is a double-sided spirit flag made up of two pieces of fabric stitched together or just one?

Yes, our double-sided flags are sewn together from two different pieces of 4 oz. polyester. This allows you to print the same design on both sides of your spirit flags or different designs on each side. A liner is put between the two printed surfaces to remove any transparency. When buying a double-sided flag, the liner is not visible.

For spirit flags, what printing process do you use?

We use dye sublimation to print our spirit flags. Our printing process allows us to print your spirit flags in high resolution, resulting in a high-quality, long-lasting flag that looks just how you want it to.

What are the smallest and biggest sizes of spirit flags available?

Spirit flags are available in bespoke sizes ranging from 5’Wx3’H to 8′ 10″ W x 8′ 10″ H.

What is the most frequent spirit flag size?

The most popular sizes for spirit flags are 3’Hx5’W, 4’Hx6’W, and 8’Wx5’H. You may purchase your own spirit flag in any size between 5’Wx3’H and 8′ 10″ W x 8′ 10″ H.

Spirit flags come in a variety of finishes. Do you have any other options for finishing?

The matte sheen on our polyester spirit flags is a nice touch. At this time, we do not provide any additional finishes.

Are pole pockets included with your spirit flags? Is there a charge for them?

Yes! Pole pockets are included with all of our spirit flags. The pole pocket is provided free of charge. Each spirit flag has a pole pocket that goes vertically along the left side. Our pole pockets measure 2″ in diameter and can accommodate poles up to 1″ in diameter.

Is it possible to add grommets to my spirit flag?

Our spirit flags do not come with grommets. Each spirit flag, however, comes with a vertical pole pocket. Pole pockets have proven to be the finest and most convenient way to utilise a spirit flag.

Is it possible to have my spirit flag cut to my specifications?

Our spirit flags come in two sizes: square and rectangle. We currently do not provide the option of cutting your spirit flag into any other form.

Is my spirit flag going to come with a pole?

As an alternative purchase with your spirit flag, we offer a 135″ pole with a 1″ diameter. We’ve discovered that many of our customers prefer to buy replacement flags or already own poles that are compatible with spirit flags, therefore we provide the pole as an optional add-on to spirit flags. If you choose a pole, you’ll receive four 36″ pole pieces that connect with a push button and can be erected in seconds at various heights (135″, 102″, and 69″). The purchase of a pole also includes a zipped carrying case for the pole. When building your spirit flag, simply choose one 135″ pole from the accessories option selection in our design tool.

What is the weight of spirit flags? How much do poles weigh?

The spirit flags are approximately.075 pounds per square foot, or.45 pounds for a 3′ by 2′ banner. Each pole segment is about.6 pounds in weight.

Is it possible to have a sports team logo printed on my spirit flag?

You may print anything that you own according to our terms and conditions. You are responsible for ensuring that the design you have printed on your spirit flag has the appropriate permits and/or licences. Please read our terms and conditions if you have any more queries about printing or copyright.

Is it possible to put a multicolor pattern on my spirit flag?

Yes! For our spirit flags, we accept multicolor patterns. We don’t charge extra for full-color printing. You are free to create your flag in any colours you choose, and there are no hidden fees.

Are spirit flags resistant to fire?

Spirit flags are heat resistant and may be used in hot weather on a summer day, but they are not fire resistant. Spirit flags should not be near open flames or fire.

Is there a handle on the pole? What’s the best way for me to hold it?

There are no grips included with the additional flag pole set. Gripping the pole itself is the best way to hold a flagpole. Multiple persons may be required to hold the flag while running or waving it during usage, depending on the size of the flag, the pole altitude, and the person(s) running the flag.

Assembling and Maintaining

How can I put my spirit flag together or utilise it?

To put together your spirit flag, start by unfolding it and putting it out flat. Avoid displaying the flag on a harsh or abrasive surface that might harm the fabric. You may use a home fabric steamer to eliminate creases from your flag. The flag should not be ironed since the material will be damaged. Gently put your flag pole into the pole pocket on the left side of the flag after assembling the pole parts with the push buttons. To avoid the flag pole snagging on the cloth and causing damage, don’t cram it into the pocket too rapidly. You’ll be ready to have your team’s logo and colours run throughout your field in a matter of minutes!

What’s the best way to set up my flagpole?

You must join the pole parts before putting them into your spirit flag if you ordered the optional pole set during your purchase. To join your pole, start by attaching two pole sections together by bringing opposite pole ends together. To complete the connection, press the button on one pole part and insert it into the other until the pin pops out of the pre-drilled hole on the other pole section. These buttons keep the pieces of the spirit flag pole together, making it more robust and sturdy. Continue with any remaining pole parts until you’ve reached the required pole length.

Is there anything that can protect the flag from falling off the pole?

Each flag comes with a pole pocket on the side that is closed at the top. In the pole pocket, the pole is inserted. We’ve discovered that using a spirit flag and having it stay on the flagpole throughout usage is adequate.

Is it true that spirit flags can withstand the elements? Are they going to fade in the sun?

Our spirit flags are constructed of a weather-resistant polyester that is durable. This material permits spirit flags to be utilised in bad weather such as rain or snow during football games. When wet or soiled in inclement weather, this material dries fast and should be washed and air dried. When not in use, spirit flags should be brought indoors. Extensive exposure to direct sunshine, like with any material, can cause fading. Nonetheless, we are certain that you will be able to use your flag at football games on a regular basis for many years to come. Your spirit flag’s lifespan will be extended if it is properly cared for.

How long do you think my spirit flag will last?

Spirit flags are designed to last for four years or more with proper care, maintenance, and storage.

My spirit flag has creases in it. Is it possible to get rid of the wrinkles?

Yes! During storage or travel, your spirit flag may wrinkle. Use a home fabric steamer to eliminate the creases. These are available to buy online or at your local home goods store. Only fabric steamers should be used to remove creases on spirit flags. Your spirit flag will be permanently damaged if you use an iron on it.

What is the best way to clean my spirit flag?

Your spirit flag may become filthy with usage. Spot clean using a colour safe fabric detergent, cold water, and a non-abrasive cloth to clean your spirit flag. If your flag need more thorough washing, run it through the machine on a delicate or low cycle with cold water. Do not wash the flag with other fabrics. By hanging your flag, you may allow the material to air dry. Use a hand drier instead of a machine dryer to avoid damaging your spirit flag.

Is it possible to wash spirit flags in the washing machine?

Yes! Our spirit flags may be washed in the washing machine. If you want to wash your spirit flag in the washing machine, do it separately and on a gentle cycle with cold water. Use a fabric detergent that is colour safe. Hang your flag to dry and let it air dry. Your flag will be damaged if you use heat or a dryer.

When I’m not using my spirit flag, how should I keep it?

Make sure the material on your spirit flag is clean before storing it. The flag material should be folded once it has been washed. After folding the flag, store it in a box or container where it will not be damaged. Nothing should be placed on top of your spirit flag. Make sure the spirit flag isn’t rubbing up against anything sharp or rough. The flag material may be torn or snagged by sharp things. Spirit flags should be stored in a cool, dry location. During storage, keep your spirit flag away from the elements and direct sunlight.

What are some of the most popular applications for spirit flags?

Our breakaway banners are frequently accompanied with spirit flags. Together, these placards add a festive touch to gameday. Spirit flags are a wonderful way to increase school spirit and get a crowd excited for a football or basketball game. As they are ran up and down or across the field or court, these flags are ideal for both high school and college athletic events. They can also be utilised for other athletic events or celebrations, such as pep rallies, spirit assemblies, and other similar activities.

Is it possible to use my spirit flags in both hot and cold weather?

Yes! Spirit flags are suitable for use in both hot and cold weather.

Can I use my spirit flag both indoors and outside?

Yes! A spirit flag may be used both indoors and outdoors. When utilising a spirit flag, keep in mind the size of the flag and the amount of area required to wave it. Make sure you have enough room both indoors and outside to utilise a spirit flag.

Will the flag fly away while in use?

Our spirit flags and pole pockets are built to endure jogging and waving at football games and other athletic events. While other flags include a grommet or crimped end, we believe the closed pole pocket gives the most flexibility, ease of construction, and game usefulness.

Is it possible for the pole to flex or break while in use?

Our alternative flag pole set is constructed of aluminium with a diameter of 1″. The completed pole is low in weight yet strong and robust in construction. You don’t have to worry about them bending or breaking during typical usage if they’ve been correctly put together. On avoid irreversible damage, avoid leaning or applying pressure to the pole while it is not in use.

Does it need more than one person to sprint with a spirit flag?

That is debatable! Based on your height and strength, as well as the height and size of your spirit flag, you may require the assistance of another person to utilise a spirit flag. In addition, double-sided flags are heavier than single-sided flags. Whether or whether more than one person is required to run or wave your spirit flag depends on your unique scenario.
