Kaumagraph International and Annin Flagmakers have a long lasting relationship which has spanned many decades. Kaumagraph, currently based in Port Elgin, Canada, has been in the specialty transfer business since 1923. Annin Flagmakers has been making USA and other flags since 1847.
Annins’ history is long and storied. They made flags for both sides during the US Civil war. It was an Annin USA flag which draped the coffin of Abraham Lincoln, an Annin flag planted at the North Pole in 1909 and it was an Annin produced flag which was the first flag which was raised at Iwo Jima on February 23, 1945.
Kaumagraph supplies Annin with high quality heat transfers for use on their flags for branding purposes. Annin heat stamps their transfers on their Nyl-Glo®, Tough Tex®, Bulldog®, Nyl-Brite®, Reliance® and Sun-Glo® brand flags. In addition to the regular business, Annin and Kaumagraph quite often partner on custom logos for OEM customers.
