Any flag can be a coffin drape - or you can design one to suit.
There are two standard sizes of coffin, rectangular or graduated. The standard size for a coffin drape is 8x5ft but this can be adjusted according to your requirements.
We offer additional flag weights if you wish to have the hemmed corners of the drape weighted down (in high wind situations) and these should be added to your shopping cart with a note at checkout saying that the flag you have ordered is a coffin drape and asking for them to be sewn on if required.
I just wanted to thank you and the team for the great job you did on the Coffin Drape for us. As this was a special request from his family it was VERY important to us to get it right and to be honest I felt a bit out of my depth when I was given responsibility for it. However, at all stages of the process you inspired confidence that it would be done to a high standard – and it was! The funeral was a big event in the area and here is a picture from the local news website which may be of interest. Gill, June 2016
Coffin drapes are fully hemmed on all four sides but we can make the drape as a flag with canvas rope and toggle if you prefer - again let us know at checkout.

Coffin covers and drapes can be printed or sewn or made using both techniques.
You could also choose to have a border of (black) fabric sewn around the rectangle or have tassels or whatever you would like. Its up to you. There are no hard or fast rules - we made a floral Union flag for a recent funeral as the family wanted something celebratory and joyful rather than sombre and they felt it looked wonderful and a real reflection of what their loved one would have chosen.
The drape looks good. The colours are bright and graphic - just right to raise the spirits on a solemn day. I will write a glowing recommendation on your website in due course. Thank you for you help and patience. Regards, Neil (December 2016)
