Do you have any advice on printing out the flags ?
What paper is best to use ? I am really not sure how permanent the inks are in the average ink jet printer. Maybe once they are varnished they are more long-lasting. Would welcome any advice from those who have used these wonderful lags. i am particularly taken by the saxons.

Use waterslide decal paper, as the printout is set at 600 its the best a printer can do but with decal paper it really brings out the fine details, i then use clear acrylic spray then put the flag on a stickyback label as this is really good quality and peel off and fix onto the pike..going to have to do a video of this next week to show how its done and put onto the website doing a step by step guide, but they look fantasic once done.

Decal paper is quite easy to get. If you have a local modelling hobby store, they should have some. If not, there's Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Testor-Corp-9202- ... aper+white

I personally plan to print my flags on cloth paper, either as templates or fully printed with texture and highlighting to follow with paint.

Gidday, Nevermore!
Just love your Club web page.Great battles, great figures. I am especially a fan of your downloadable flags, and wonder if you could get your draughtsman to do up WSS Austrian Imperial flags as you have done for the 30 Years War? Cheers, Rohan - Eumundi, Australia :D
