Single/Reverse vs. Double Sided Flags

A lot of people ask us this, especially if they're not used to printing on textiles! Here's the quick answer...because textiles are porous, on some fabric types the ink will bleed through and be visible from the backside. However, the image is reversed on the back side. This is what we call "single reverse". This is the standard for any type of flag print. We do have some fabrics and non-textiles that aren't intended for this type of use. These usually go up against a wall, and can only be seen from one side. This is what we mean by "single sided".

Our double sided flags are printed twice and have a liner sewn in between the two prints, which blocks out the image from the reverse side. So, no matter what the substrate, if we say it's "double sided", you'll see an image clearly on both the front and the back.  

About 90% of flags we print are single/reverse.  Similar to what you see on the United States Flag or State Flags.
