We are a proud American family-owned and operated business located in Texas. We work very hard to offer as many products that are made in the United States as possible, but with the majority of the textile and fabric business operating overseas then there are only so many USA-Made options we are able to offer. We work with over 30 vendors and manufacturers to make sure our products are the best quality for the price. Rest assured – even if the product is not American Made you are supporting an American small business by choosing to shop with us at I Am Erica’s Flags.

Our decorative Garden and House Flags are made out of fade-resistant fabric, but fading from the sun is unfortunately something we cannot avoid. It is important to note that designs with darker colors will show signs on fading faster than lighter flags.

We also recommend taking your flags down if you are expecting inclement weather. Repeated exposure to high winds, especially combined with rain or heavy moisture, will weaken the fabric and lead to premature fraying.

We have seen many customers who are able to make their flags last several years by placing them in partial or full shade and regularly changing out the flags with different seasons or holidays. If you have additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

While none of our flags will have a blank side, we use several terms throughout our product descriptions to let you know if our flags are single or double sided:

Single-Sided or Single-Reverse

On our printed flags the image will be visible on both sides with one side being slightly lighter (the difference is rarely noticeable). If there are words in the design then they will only read correctly from the “front” side. When describing our sewn flags (ie: American or Texas Flags) this means that while it is technically not double-sided, it will look virtually the same on both sides of the flag with the exception of the hems. 


The term “double-sided” or “double applique” describes flags that are actually two different flags sewn together, and may or may not include a piece of light-blocker fabric as a middle layer. It is also important to note that many of our popular, printed decorative flags are listed as “double-sided”, but are instead created using a high-quality blocker fabric so the image is printed on both sides of the same piece of fabric. Any images will be identical and the words will read correctly on either side of the flag.

In addition, some of our decorative or sewn flags will not be double applique or double-sided, but the manufacturer instead opted to sew a panel on the back of the flag where lettering appears so the words read correctly on both sides of the flag.

Each product will have a description that will specify which of the above options describes it best. If there are any questions or if you would like clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Cleaning your flag regularly or prior to storing for an extended period of time will help extend the life of the flag. If not removed, dirt particles can embed themselves into the fabric and contribute to premature fraying. Most of our manufacturers recommend hand washing flags in warm water with a mild detergent before hang drying.

Our team can assist you with custom printed flags in various sizes for your organization or business. We do prefer you provide a logo or artwork, but can help with the design process for an additional fee. Volume discounts are available. Please contact us for more information.
