    Everything was great except the printing was on the opposite side where it typically wouldn’t be and wasn’t expecting that. Needs an option for what side the printing would be on.

    • Cara Bolling

      Hi, Amber! Thank you for the review. May I ask how you received the flags? Is the staff to the left of the print on the flag?

    About what I expected EXCEPT the wrap around fold on the flags we’re on the front which I think looks odd.

    Haven’t used yet. Will be interested in gauge of wire thickness and whether it will go in the ground with out bending. And how up to 2 months in the weather will affect them.

    So eager to use and appreciate the prompt delivery.
