On a side note: Another flag article is in the works, this time for the other flag shapes. This article just grew too large to be included with other designs. Who knows, maybe the other flag shapes will, too, grow too large to not be their own articles.

Anthony, these articles (and the rest of the how-to section) are delightful. A real resource to the community.

I haven't made any custom stickers for any of my stuff yet, but this banners one has got me really thinking that I need to get my but in gear and get some printed off.

Thanks again.

Outstand article as usual :wink: This is a great resource which will add a lot of diversity to our banners. I wonder if LEGO ever considered printing on these flags. Perhaps it is too difficult to print on the softer plastic which is also wavy.

These flags look great Sava! I mean, really, really great!

So if you could, for me, please make a Bull Pennant, for me, I would be very, very very greatful.

What's to say that hasn't already been said in a previous post here, or after one of the other articles:

It's awesome! (No, that's already been done.)

Stunning! (No, that's been done too.)

Jawdropping! (If not in those words, then close enough.)

I've got to use these! (Been done. Lots.)

Hmm... I guess that there's nothing new to say. :D

These are excellent Anthony,

Another great resource for all Classic-Castle users. I must say that the flags with official heraldry look great. I really like The Falcon and Wolfpack flags. The pennant images are great as well. Thanks for all the hard work.

Ok - A few things: (not for anthony, for those who use his templates)

First off - for the pennants, use real sticker paper. It seems that the glue stick method doesn't work.
Second - I used photopaper the first time, and it really sucked. It was too thick, didn't bend right.
Finally - use a very sharp x-acto knife if you have one. If not then use a razor. you can use scissors, but its very very tricky.


Thanks again Anthony - love these stickers, and as I get better stickers I will use them more.
