Flags have traditionally been screen printed. But let’s assume that you need just a few customized flags of a company or a sports team billowing in the wind. Screen printing works well only when you require the prints in large quantities. Flag printing at Orchid happens instantaneously. Read about the job we recently executed to understand the process…

Flag printing at Orchid, Pune
