At A Stars & Stripes Flag Corporation/Bestcustomflags.com, we are both Mac and PC based and use the latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud software. We use the Pantone Matching System® and can color match with Solid Coated Pantone® colors only. To ensure the best quality on all orders, please use our checklist below before submitting artwork.
