2x2 Flag templates

Postby Hikaro Takayama » Mon Feb 28, 2011 1:25 am

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone had templates for designing stickers for standard LEGO 2x2 flags... I've got a bunch of blank blue 2x2 flags through Pick a Brick for the express purpose of customizing, but I haven't had much luck finding anything.

....If there is no such thing (I've seen plenty of stuff for fabric flags, shields and torsos, but nothing for the ABS flags), I guess I'll just have to experiment until I come up with something that works, and post that here myself....

Thanks in advance for any help you all might offer.

Here you go: http://www.minifigcustomizationnetwork.com/node/256
I haven't tried this template myself, but i suppose it's the right size. Otherwise, just measure one of your flags and resize the template in a writing programme like word.

Hey,

In addition to the Minifig Customization Network, which has a lot of great stuff, we also have some articles on our How-To page, including an article by Anthony specifically on LEGO flags.

Albatross_Viking: Thanks! That is exactly what I was looking for! I'll be sure to post some of the castle-related custom 2x2 flags that I'm going to be designing over the weekend... Well, once I've printed out a few test sheets to make sure that I've got the right size and such.

Bruce N. H: Thanks for the help, but I'd already found that particular How-to article... Unfortunately it's only for making Pennant stickers (although I'm definitely planning on putting those templates to use as well sometime in the near future), but not the 2x2-sized dual-clip flags (which, TBH are more of a Pirate item, but some of the Classic Castle sets used them as well... I have a Black Knights 2x2 flag, courtesy of the Sea Serpent set).

Once again, thank you both for your help!
