Custom Burgee

Anyone know where to get a custom burgee made? Looking for an online shop that I can send a design in to. I could just pick one off the internet, but would prefer tried and true.

Silly boy. Why should you not seek out a qualified seamstress and have her make you up just what you desire out of the material of your choice? If you really want to do it up nicely you might combine her efforts with a local embroiderer's to make a burgee of high quality and distinction. Many embroiderer's have computer generated images that they program in to their sewing machines. Some can even scan your image and replicate it. Or you can just have it silk-screened by your local T-shirt shop.

BF,

They look good too -- better in fact. Give us a report on your satisfaction if you try them.

I guess Sailaway runs with a different crowd -- one that includes seamstresses and heaven knows who else...

Lego Pollard obviously forgets that in the old wester movies the seamstress was always a hot babe. Practically speaking though there are usually women around, much more common than may be thought, who do seamstress work. Asking about at either the local dry cleaners or the local fabric store is a good way to find them. Likewise, there are often embroidery people locally who do sweatshirts and ball caps for a sideline or actual business.

Satisfied customer

I designed a swallowtail private flag and had two made by Burgee Shoppe a few years ago. Just sent them a simple file from the PC and they made it perfectly, with proper material, stitching and hardware (grommets). Price was about $45.00 each.
