FAQs

Q: Can you make custom capes?

Sure thing! We can make custom capes for your family reunion, softball team, business, or whatever else! Please Contact Us so that we can discuss designs, minimum order quantities, etc. We will need a couple of months to complete your order (printing, cutting, stitching, shipping, etc.) so make sure that you let us know early!

Q: Is Americapes on social media?

You betcha! You can give us a follow on Twitter @AmericapesHQ, give us a like on Facebook, tag us on Instagram, or pin us over on Pinterest!

Q: Isn’t this a violation of the National Flag Code?

No. Our capes are not, and never were, flags of the United States of America. Therefore, they do not fall under the jurisdiction of the National Flag Code. However, because they are representative of such, we still believe that they should be treated with respect.

Here is an excerpt from the National Flag Code that specifically deals with this issue.

§ 176. Respect for flag

(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.

As you can see, wearing an actual flag as a cape is a violation of the National Flag Code. Wearing our capes, because they are not flags, is not a violation. We encourage everyone to read the complete National Flag Code for themselves.

Q: Where can we find Americapes besides this awesome website?
