How To Steam or Iron Wrinkles out of a Fabric Flag, Fabric Banner or Fabric Backdrop
When it comes to ironing fabric flags, you need to be careful. This is not an operation you can afford to get wrong. While the flags that we make are designed to be sturdy and long lasting, even the strongest material can wear out if treated in the wrong manner.
Whatever you do, never, ever put the fabric flag or backdrop in the washer. This is the surest way to do irreparable damage to it. The colors will run and the fabric could very easily tear. Instead, here is the very best way to safely iron a nylon flag.
Step 1: Remove any pole that is attached to the fabric flag or backdrop for purposes of display. This is to make it easier to prepare the flag for steaming or ironing.
Step 2: Turn your steamer or iron on and set it to the lowest possible heat or very gentle setting.
Step 3: Hang or lay your banner or flag on a surface like an ironing board.
Step 4: Smooth out the flag. Use the palm of your hand to smooth down any wrinkles. Once you have finished, you will be ready to use the steamer or iron.
Step 5: When steaming or ironing your fabric flag or backdrop, be sure to use a slow, gentle back and forth motion. Keep the iron at medium pressure.
