Our appliqué flags are made by sewing a cutout of your design onto a nylon background material. The word “appliqué” is derived from the French verb “appliquer”, which means to "put on" or "apply". The appliqué technique produces a beautifully detailed and textured fabric.
Our appliqué flags have been a customer favorite for special events, college recognitions as well as milestones in a business. Appliqué flags have long been a favorite for indoor use, especially with business logo flags and parades.
Prestigious sports complexes such as the Dean E. Smith Center at the University of North Carolina as well as Shaw University trust Carrot-Top Industries for their detailed custom products. See examples of previous custom appliqué scroll down towards the bottom of this page.
How is an appliqué flag made?
We start with your digital artwork in a vector format, which is plotted onto paper using small holes to determine the path. The paper cutout of your artwork is then positioned over the colored fabric of your choice, pinned into place, and then stencil in to show through to the fabric below it.
The cloth pattern is then sewn in a zig-zag format onto the fabric below it where once completely sewn on, the edges of the pattern are cut off to leave a clean edge. Once all the design has been sewn into place the banner is hemmed to your specifications with a pole sleeve or header and grommets. These flags are typically finished single/reverse but you can request a double sided or single with a plain back.
