Each piece I produce is unique and bespoke. If you’d like to discuss a future project and get a tailored quote for your banner, please do get in touch using the contact tab. The examples below are to give you a rough idea.

I like to be completely transparent about the costs – the cost for me to produce a banner and the cost to you to commission it. This is a hobby for me, and it costs me a lot of money and time to produce each banner I make.

Basically, what governs the price of a banner is how many hours of work it takes me to produce, which is obviously linked to the intricacy of the design.

Minute details take time.
Over two hours of work and around £7 of materials can go into each trophy.

The fabrics and Bondaweb cost me about £60 for a 240 x 150cm banner (which is the standard size I usually work to). I use top quality cotton drill and superfine wool rich felt, and my flags are made to last.

After drawing up a design, creating all the stencils, marking up and hand cutting the felt, and fusing the design with Bondaweb, trusted seamstress Debbie then charges me between £40 and £60 for the sewing work depending on the complexity of the design, so my total outgoings on each flag are about £100-120, give or take. I also have to pay 20% of the money I make in tax. What you are paying for beyond that is my time spent creating the design and making it a reality.

Example 1 – £230

A relatively simple text / stars / simple emblem design with just a few words (such as my recent World Beaters flag) would take me about 10 hours work, so at £11 an hour (which is not far above the living wage), I’d charge around £100 costs and £110 for my labour +£20 in tax), therefore £230 in total. (The FIFA badge would be a couple of extra hours and so would bump it up a notch to £255.)

This commission, with just a few words of text, would also come in at £230.
Another £230 design

Example 2 – £255

This commission was a relatively simple design, but the amount of text included at the bottom made it quite labour intensive. This took around 12 hours work to produce (so £132 in labour, plus tax, plus £100 for materials and sewing).

Example 3 – £280

Some banners take more time in the planning / design phase. This one was relatively simple from a cutting point of view, but took quite a few hours of planning work. There was also quite a lot of detailed cutting work in the production of the crest, so it took around 15 hours in total.

Example 4 – £310

The Cheshire Bears piece was a relatively complicated logo to produce and needed considerably more work, so to produce something like this would be around £310.

Example 5 – £340

Details

The recent Block 202 commission involved many hours of intricate work, much of which went on the detail of the trophies. This one came in at £340. A similar banner but just with silhouettes of the trophies would have been £260. I think you can see where the extra hours went.

Example 6 – £450+

For a very complex design (like the “Deus Nobis Haec Otia Fecit” banner with the old Liverpool crest, tassels, fringing and complex lettering), it would be at least £450 due to the amount of time taken and the extra cost of materials – this flag took me a month to produce for myself and was a true labour of love.
