Hello guys, I used to get the wonderful cloth banners from Pro Gloria Miniatures, now they have been absorbed by Warlord and the banners are no longer on their page is it possible to get cloth banners to that quality from any other manufacturer? These are the ones.

I don't know if he has ones like what you are looking for, but I have his cloth flags for some condottieri and they are awesome:

I've used the ones idontbelieveit suggested, good range, good quality.
maverick-models.co.uk also do good cloth flags, not sure if they do that period though.

Flag Dude fixed me up with some nice cloth flags for ACW. Period shouldn't be a problem. He does custom work.

In the UK, Fluttering Flags do a good service – his cloth flags, pennons and banners come ready 'fluttered' and mounted on flag poles.

You can print on cotton in an inkjet. Cut the cloth and a piece of Parchment paper (like used for meat wrapping or baking) to the correct size for your printer. Use a cool iron to iron the cloth to the shiny side of the parchment paper. Add to the paper tray and print! based on you printer and the weave of the cloth you should be able to get a fair level of detail cheap.

We used this method years ago to print flags for my son's birthday (knight themed)

Search on ebay for pete's flags. I have got loads from him recently. They look very much like the ones you have shown.

Do you need to use a special kind of cotton, or a thin thickness?

Are most prints on cotton, or can you print on other fabrics too, like satins, or silks?

I'd be really worried about the fabric jamming in the machine. Is that a non-issue once you use the paper backing?

Hi Zoring, I don't have a full sheet but I reckon I'll have all of the flags pictured on the sheet kicking around somewhere on misfeeds etc. Email me on:
petesflags (at) yahoo (dot) com with your address and I'll stick them in the post for you.

cheers Pete
