The Burgee...It Is Alive.....

We have a sample real life burgee, see pics. Everyone pretty much knows what a 12X18 burgee looks like but I post the flying pics anyway. Sorry, best I could do as no wind.

This is the "high end" hand sewn, applique, 12"X 18", $75 version discussed in an earlier thread. Bacchus is trying to get a sample from at least one other vendor who is lower cost, but not sure if they will go along with the plan. Will leave out any comments from us and see what members have to say.

IMO (which is worth what you paid for it), the border trim is to wide. Making it half the width would increase the background area, giving the logo better separation from the border.

Looks great. This shape fails at tip due to snapping in wind. Suggest corner reinforcement at tip so border holds to bass fabric .

Ted
My first and last impression also. Reducing the width of the yellow border will improve the overall balance.

Edit: thanks for a mostly thankless job!

Looks terrific. However, I also agree that border could be a bit narrower and tip a bit better reinforced.

It is very well sewn but we could certainly ask for more reinforcement if needed. I purchased this one as I just wanted to see one in real life. We can change as needed. Then I'm stuck with the original but you gotta pay to play!

This one, the high end or high priced one, is $75 as long as we meet the minimum. Not a problem with that as it was 25 flags I believe. Bacchus is still working on another example that is less expensive, $35 I believe? The vendor says that one will be much the same quality. We are waiting to see if that's true. Just not sure if we can get an actual sample to look at.

As I mentioned, the illustrious burgee committee has some comments but holding them back for now. I will say this is one thing we discussed. More on that later.

Unfortunately Ted is correct once again but I would buy either. Thanks for all who put forth the effort to get it done.

Concur with the general sentiment regarding the outside hem, look’s a bit too wide. But some fine work just the same, especially the grommet area, 7 layer’s?

Confirming what first base reported. I am expecting to receive a sample TF burger any day now. With a lower price... likely under $30 + shipping.
I'll post pics as soon as I get it.
We have had to try several mfgrs to get what we wanted so it has taken a little more time than expected... hopefully worth the time & effort.
Stay tuned
