The Windsail flag is one of three promotional flag designs from M&M. The other two are Drop and Square. It is the most popular flag with customers. The Windsail flag was so named because of its ship’s sail shape. It is also called “Beach flag”, but this can be confusing because this term does not specify the shape of the flag and technically any of the flags in the catalog can be displayed on a beach.
The Windsail flag is available in four (4) sizes: extra-small, small, medium and large. It can also be printed on one side only, or double-sided.
In the first case, so in single-sided printing, the canvas that is chosen is the “Flag” fabric, which is translucent to a certain degree. Thus, the printed visual is visible from both sides. However, it is reversed on the back. This is important to remember when designing the graphic layout. Some customers do not want to see the text or logo reversed.
In the second case, therefore in double-sided printing, the recommended fabric is “Blocker” or “NightStar”. These fabrics have a black liner in the center and a printable white weave on each side. Thus, the ink printed on one side is not visible on the other side. To print a double-sided flag, it is important to use the right template, which is double-sided, in addition to choosing the right format. As the back of the flag has an inverted shape to that of the front, it must therefore be taken into account in the assembly of the electronic document, otherwise there is a risk of there being elements which will be outside the printable area.
The Windsail flag can be ordered alone, so the canvas only, or with the set including its mast and its carrying bag. If you wish to add a base, it must be chosen from the models offered and ordered separately. M&M Graphic offers five stock bases: the stake, the indoor chrome base, the outdoor cross base, the flat base and the car “V” base. Their uses and prices are different.
M&M Graphic’s manufacturing workshop produces hundreds of flags of different types every week, thanks to its modern and efficient equipment and productive operators. The standard production time for an order of flags is 5 working days. However, if the order has a high volume of units to produce, i.e. 20 or more, or it is in high season*, it is possible that we need 10 or 15 working days to deliver the order. In any case, the advisers will always give the right time as to the possible deadlines and will do everything to accommodate the clients.
At M&M Graphic, customer service is a priority and has been since 1976.
Please note, however, that it is possible to have Windsail flags (this model only) printed in China for volume orders (25 units and more). In this case, however, the extra-small format is not available. In the case of production in China, the prices are advantageous, but the lead times are much longer. Contact an M&M representative to learn more about orders produced in China.
