Single Reverse vs. Single Sided vs. Double Sided?
Because textiles are porous, on some fabric types the ink will actually bleed through. 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". No matter what the substrate, if we say it's "double sided", you'll an image clearly on both the front and the back.
How long should my flag last?
There is no exact answer. The U.S. Government generally expects a flag to last approximately 90 days based on daily usage from sunrise to sunset - but not during periods of inclement weather. Tests have shown that in some cases a flag flying 24 hours a day will last only one-fourth as long as one flown during daylight hours only. The major enemies of a flag are the wind and sun. Neither you nor we can control the weather, but you can take care of your flag and lengthen its life.

• #2 Have your flag repaired at the first sign of fraying.
