NEW FORUM FLAGS
« on: March 23, 2006, 03:59:30 PM »
In late February I send three different flag companies requests for pricing on new forum flags.  Uncommon USA, Inc.; Flags on the Go; and CVS Wholesale Flags.  The spec's. one each are:
1. Certified made in USA.
2. 14" x 20"
3. End hem at least quadruple.
4. Top and Bottom hem at least double.
5. Grommet end reinforced with extra binding.
6. Non-rust grommets with at least a 3/8" hole opening.
7. Three color non-fading.
8. Single sided.
9. Bid on 12 and on 25 for the first order.
10. Include shipping to 85635/
11. Retain pattern for at least 1 year.
********************************
Today [March 23rd] I received the first quote.  It is from Flags on the Go [the company we have bought all the other orders from].  The set-up is $140.  The cost for 12 is $51.53 and for 25 is $31.20 each.  Total cost for the first 25 would be $36.50 to include the set-up fee.  No shipping as those people moved from Quartzsite to just a few miles from us here in Sierra Vista.

Tom - would you mark this as a "sticky" so I can add to it later?

Good news Fred. I went ahead and super-stickied the topic, so it doesn't scroll down the page. I also posted an announcement here directing folks to this topic.

Please put us down for a flag.

Thanks for doing this for us.

Is the flag background all yellow like the previous one or is it a yellow circle on a blue square, like the forum logo?  A picture would be helpful, unless the flag is identical to the logo. Well almost identical, since the flag is  rectangular and the logo square..

We will also take one - sounds like 25 should sell out fairly easily. Just let us know when & where to send the $$.

I will wait for the other bids to come in.  Will let you know if "up-front" is need.  Will depend on how many requests I get before the order goes in.  Thanks!

Hi Fred,

Please put us on the list for a flag.

At some point, up front, or when the flags are in but before shipping, or with "an invoice" when shipped, please let me know the cost and I'll mail you a USD money order.

Thank you,

Doug

The flag is the forum logo as seen on the top of the page.

I'm having trouble picturing it, since the logo is square and the flag is rectangular. If the flag is the logo only, will it be stretched out? I guess I was thinking more along the lines of the square logo on a rectangular background of some color.  I'm not pushing for any particular layout - just trying to form a mental picture of what it will look like.

I've attached a quick mock-up of what I imagined as "logo on background". Proportions are probably off, but it conveys the idea.

Gary; Now you mention it - I did not think of specifying the size of the logo in relation to the flag.  For the first flags that was not done either??  When time comes to place an order, I will do something about that.  Still waiting for the two other companies to respond.

Well, somebody must have done so when the old original design was layed out for the silk screen template.  I don't know what quality and size of image file Tom has made available for your use. Presumably it is  larger and better quality than the little logo at the top of this page,  which is real blurry even at 3x3.    On a 14x20 flag, the logo needs to be at least 7 inches square to be noticeable at all and I'd suggest more like 10 inches.  Don't know if that is possible with the graphic Tom has.
