About

In our first 12 month of this journey my wife and I went from indulging our 6 year old son who wanted to "start his own business" making American Flags, to having friends, and friends of friends placing dozens of orders, which then led to a website, working trades shows on weekends and the opportunity to sell our flags out of several big name industry leaders such as Harley Davidson Motorcycle Dealerships.  Being in awe and humbled by our 6 year old sons ambition, my wife and I recognized that indulging his idea would be a blessing that would teach everyone in our family countless lessons for the rest of our lives. 

In just 12 months we went from building a flag with my son, that we thought would be hung proudly in our own home, and would be the center piece of a memory of a weekend project, to selling over 400 flags to nearly 400 families, in 40 states across our country.  To keep up with the demand, my wife and I have left our day jobs, and have emerged ourselves in this opportunity full time.  

We have hit a bitter sweet crossroads of sorts.  With opportunities to expand, we have come to the realization that while many of our customers are willing to pay the cost for the time consuming process of having hand painted art on their flags, the majority of people who love our flags find the cost of hand painted artwork a little out of their budget.  To remedy this and create flags that are more affordable to a much larger market, we have found a solution with UV Printing.  By having our own UV Printer, we will be able to offer BOTH hand painted artwork for a premium, as well as UV Printed artwork at a very affordable price. Providing this option and adding to our product line more affordable flags, we will increase our customer base by nearly 80%. 

Risks and challenges

The risks of adding more affordable flags to our product line is very low. By continuing to have 100% of our flags being 100% handcrafted, and still offering both our hand painted artwork as well as our custom and personalized artwork flags, we avoid the risk of losing any market share that our brand has. We can only gain a larger market share by appealing to those with a more conservative budget.

    Original Old Glory Rustic Flag

    FLAG SPECS
    Construction: Handcrafted from 14 pieces of wood.
    Artwork: Flawlessly hand painted stars, lettering or artwork
    Size: 40 inches wide X 20 inches high X 1.5 inches deep.

    Our "Original Old Glory" Flag is a 100% handcrafted flag with each of the 50 stars being flawlessly painted by hand. All our flags are 100% handcrafted and then 100% hand painted on carefully selected pieces of wood with bold wood grain. We then use a flame to braze the wood to bring out the woods grain. We then painstakingly paint each individual piece with several coats of paint that have been thinned out to allow the paint to be both rich in color, but also transparent enough to allow the wood grain have a bold contribution to the flags character, making each flag a truly unique piece of art.
