We’re Proud To Provide Our Customers With Flag Repair And Modification Services
When it comes to wear and tear, it is best to pursue repair sooner rather than later. Some flags are sadly beyond saving, but we’re happy to provide guidance on how to best dispose of your U.S. flag.
The fly end of a flag is the loose end that tatters in the wind over time. Our craftsmen can cut away and hem the tattered section.
By reinforcing the loose end (fly end) of your flag with additional stitching, we can prevent and slow tattering. Available for all flag sizes.
Our craftsmen can add a pole hem to any flag, so your flag can drape beautifully indoors or take part in a parade.
Recommended for flags measuring 8×12 feet and larger, rope and thimble pole attachments offers a heavier-duty alternative to classic grommets.
Our craftsmen can sew fringe onto any flag to provide a classic formal flair. Recommended for parade flags and indoor ceremonial display.
Recommended for large flags, our craftsmen patch the loose (fly end) corners of your flag to more effectively prevent damage.
Designed for flags attached to buildings, a grommeted patch is sewn to the bottom of your flag. A rod connects from the flagpole to the patch in order to prevent tangling.
Our craftsmen can add a header and grommets to any flag. We can also adjust grommets for horizontal hanging.
