Lead Time

Below is a detailed run through of the order process for custom flags and hardware. Our summer maintenance and shutdown period this year is from the 1st-11th of August. During this time we will be running maintenance checks and updating our inventory. Any orders placed between 1st-11th August will be subject to slightly longer lead times. All orders will be processed when we are back up and running on the 14th.

 

One of the most frequently asked questions we get asked is "How long will my flag take to print?". It's a good question and there are a few factors involved in exactly how long it will take so please take a moment to read this page. If you need it for a specific date please get in touch and ask us if this is possible. For all stock items ordered separately such as rope will be shipped within 2-3 working days.
