Teardrops are extremely popular with sports and activity brands (indoor or outdoor) and provide a very modern shaped promotional flag. In addition, they are very useful if you don’t want the flag material to move in a breeze (the flag will stay straight and rotate in base). You benefit from a full digital colour reproduction that is vibrant for maximum impact. This system is light, portable and easy to carry.

Please set up your artwork to the following specifications:
- Size with bleed: 154mm x 216mm
- Resolution: 300 dpi minimum
- Format: PDF or JPEG
- Colour: CMYK (RGB/Pantones will be converted during proofing)
- Fonts: Outlined or Embedded
- Bleed: 3mm with no printer marks
- Safe Zone: 3mm
Our printing software automatically converts all RGB documents into CMYK. This can cause some variations in colour, so we recommend that you set up your design software in CMYK where possible.
The RGB spectrum is much larger than CMYK. This makes it difficult to create a consistent quality of print within an RGB spectrum, as the variations can also differ between different printing presses (even if they are identical models). CMYK ensures a high standard of print quality, and no variation of colour during the print process.
HOW DO I CREATE ARTWORK IN CMYK?
Most major design programmes will allow you to create a canvas in CMYK. Whichever programme you’re using, you should be able to find and adjust the following settings:
- Colour Mode: CMYK (sometimes called Process Colours);
- Colour Profile: Forgra 39 (ISO 12647-2:2004);
- Export as PDF/x01a:2001.
Remember to check your proof before submitting for print and use a colour-calibrated computer monitor, if possible.
Use the following methods to ensure that your fonts will not be substituted when sent over to another computer.
If you have the font license for the font you have used in the design file, when converting into a PDF you will be asked if you would like to embed the fonts in the document. Selecting ‘yes’ packages the fonts with the document information files, so that when opened on another computer it will look exactly the same.
SAVING AS AN IMAGE
You can save a file into a raster format, such as a JPEG, PNG, or TIFF, so that the font becomes part of the image. This means it won’t look any different when opened on any other computer but it does mean it is much harder to edit at a later date. This method is ideal for final proofing or sending to print, as every computer will display the same image.
OUTLINE YOUR TEXT
If you are using Adobe InDesign or Illustrator, you will have the ability to ‘outline’ your text. This will turn your text into a vector shape and ensures that it will not be converted in to another font when you send the file from one computer to another.
