This question I don’t really get asked its more I see when a person requests a quote and say’s “I would like a custom flag made using my logo the colors in my logo are navy blue, red, yellow and white"
After being a flag maker for many years I have found out that many flag manufacturers out there especially the one's on the internet say that the custom flag above is 4 colors when they send the quote.
I would like to tell you right now!
This is not true!! The flag above is only 3 colors WHY?
White is not a color
When we screen print onto the flag material if there are 6 colors in your logo then we will use 6 colors eg: blue, red, yellow, green, black, violet.
The color white is not used, the material is white so when we make the film to use to screen print your logo the part which is supposed to be white we don’t use any color.
So next time you go to have a custom flag made be shore they don’t charge you for the color white. If you have white in your logo the flag makers will use white material, most flags are screen printed on white material anyway.
