Mornin' Marky, very good 👍
What printer did she use and how was the cotton kept flat and straight??
This is something I've been wondering how to do (without spending thousands!) for some time!
Cheers Doug 😎

I work in an Art college and I can access the technical facilities there is a printed textiles dept and they have digital printers that print from a jpeg or a scanned picture ,these flags are printed on one side and fold down the centre ,the signal flags were printed on both sides but will have another attempt as they didn'tline up quite right .

Cheers Marky

With right printer driver the printer 'thinks' for you. 😉
IF you remember to tell it you're using a transfer!

Gang,

Just in case, this is a good and reliable scale model boat flag maker in Germany: http://www.schiffsmodellflaggen.de/english/english.html Great pricing and quality, the guy is very high speed and can make any flag you ask for.

Excellent, thanks 👍You just saved me 15000 Euro 😉😉
Although his English history is a bit screwed up! Queen Victoria in 1702 ???? 🤔 I think he got the date of the Union a bit wrong as well. But so what? It's the model flags we want not a history lesson 😉😉

Anytime! I guess he heard Queen Victoria was old but well... He recently made me 2 custom-made flags, one of Puerto Rico, another of the Dominican Republic. Great service and product.
