To a point. I find the larger flags easier than the smaller ones, less frantic motion.

More leverage too, a big pole helps with that.

So i got a quote from the flag makers. It's gonna be $330 for a double sided 7'x 7' flag... They say 1 sided is a lot cheaper, but I'm not sure if it looks as good. But on ultras shop.com it's about $90 for a 8' x 8' flag.. They said they will ship to America, but It's still kinda sketchy for me because they're in Europe.. What do you think I should do?

I believe that all of our printed flags are one sided.

We have had quite a bit of luck getting stuff shipped from overseas.

The flags from Flagmakers are shipped from China. We've bought two and had no issues with delivery.

You can also make one - what level of complexity are you looking to do? Anything you make can be painted both sides, but a properly done double sided flag is actually 3 layers, where there is a neutral layer in the middle to cut the light passing through.

I'm definitely not gonna make it myself! But the issue is sending my money to Ultrasshop.com for only $80 or buying from a more "reliable" American company Flag Makers for $330.. Does anyone have experience buying from ultras shop?

how is your flag that expensive? update the quote to be single sided. also avoid a fade in the design as that increases cost. note all our flags are blocks of color (albeit complicated designs). That should reduce you cost to less than $200 for sure, shipped.

Can anybody show me an example of a 1 sided flag vs a 2 sided flag? I'm just scared it wont look as good. I'm still so tempted to get it from Ultras shop..

All of our printed flags are one sided. They look beautiful in photos of the section. 1 sided will look just fine. But it's up to you, if you want a double sided flag, that's your prerogative.

Is this flag (The one on the right with the ECS logo) from flag-makers? Is it 200d, is it one sided, and is it 8' x 8'? My favorite flag! https://www.weareecs.com/images/Supporter_Culture/Why_We_Series/Flags%20M.jpg
