Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign!

Flags and banners have been used to communicate for thousands of years and serve a variety of purposes. The most common use for a banner or flag has always been a symbol of belonging, common purpose and camaraderie.

Historically, flags and banners were displayed to communicate an association with an entity, most commonly a country, community or organization.

In ancient history, banners were used to symbolize Kings and royalty. Banners and flags were carried so that citizens could identify their ruler and his entourage and show them the respect that was deemed appropriate during those times.

However, as time progressed, flags, banners and signs began to be used by more than just royalty and rulers. The use of flags evolved into symbols of family lineage and national pride.

In addition to identification and association, individual flags are utilized to promote pride and respect for the ideals that the particular group may represent within their community or culture.

For example, the United States flag is a known as a symbol of liberty, strength and unity and is considered a source of pride and inspiration for American citizens.

During the American Civil War, regiments were recruited from individual states. Each regiment generally carried its state flag into battle to represent their homeland.

Soldiers took pride in these flags and treated them with reverence. Flags and banners were national symbols intended to reinforce morale, and, most importantly, to distinguish their regiment from others and the enemy during battles.

Flags and banners represent the sacrifice the citizens have made for their state or country. The qualities and beliefs that a state or country and its people have historically promoted are common themes.

That fact is still true today.

Eventually flags became visual vehicles for the promotion of commerce within communities. Flags and signs are now broadly accepted as an effective way to promote both membership and trade.

Flags have also become symbols for the corporate branding of professional organizations, sports teams and their sponsors in competition.

Everyone from political groups to trade giants have their logos and corporate image printed for their current and future customers to be able to recognize and identify their locations, products and events when shared thru multiple media vehicles.

Billboards and fly over banners reach large groups with big visuals in high traffic areas while yard signs and on-site flags can reach into the physical neighborhoods and communities.

What works best and where is the best placement are decisions the person who orders the flags and banners

School sponsor banners at high schools show both appreciation for and encouragement for those who view it to patronize those sponsors.

Budget Friendly – Easy to understand Quotes and No Hidden Fees!

At The Tee Spot We Offer the Options Of.…

Screen Print – Screen Printing is probably what you think of when you think about t-shirt printing because it is the oldest and most traditional form of t-shirt printing.   It is the most cost-effective solution for large custom apparel orders. 

Embroidery – Embroidery is a decoration method using thread to stitch a design into the garment.   It looks very professional on garments and can be used on caps, bags, and jackets where other methods cannot be used due to heat sensitivity, bulkiness, etc.

DTG – Garments enter a  large inkjet type printer where special  garment ink is sprayed directly onto the material.   It can’t be beat for low run high color and photograph designs.  We offer this type of printing in as little as one hour. 

Heat Transfer Vinyl – White Toner Heat Transfer is an  alternative to screen print and DTG for low runs.  It is still vivid in color like screen print but does not require a full screen setup.    

Sublimation – Sublimation is a transfer of ink through a gas process.   It can only be done on a white polyester fabric or substrate coated in a polymer substance.   Used for Ceramic mugs, mouse pads, flags and other polyester and polymer surfaces to create a full color vivid permanent design.

ALL of these options have pros and cons based on possible time and cost constraints as well as limitations to fabric, substrate and the end look desired.
