How to choose a display case

When deciding on the best flag display case to honor someone’s service, it’s important to pick the one that suits your desires, and that can feel overwhelming without a little guidance on what to consider. Flag display cases are bought for a variety of reasons, whether it be to memorialize a veteran or to celebrate retirement. Crafted Cases has plenty of options to match your vision, and below are a few things to keep in mind when making your purchase.


  1. Size of your flag 

First, consider the size of your flag. It’s important to measure before selecting a flag display case. Memorial flag display cases hold 5 x 9 foot flags, while retirement flag cases hold 3 x 5 foot flags. Make sure to leave a little bit of extra space to avoid tight fits that may damage the flag’s fabric overtime.

2. Type of material

Second, consider what type of material you desire. Select wood (cherry, oak, or walnut) and a stain to match the decor of where the flag case will be displayed. Crafted Cases also offers a variety of velvet options to choose from. Perhaps you choose the favorite color of the veteran you are honoring, or simply a color that complements the wood. Either way, the materials are a great way to customize and make the flag display case truly yours.

3. Wall-mounted or free-standing? 

Third, consider if you want your flag display case to be wall-mounted or free-standing.  A wall-mounted flag display case could be used in a gallery wall, for example. It would add a focal point to the room while also allowing you to decorate the wall around it with whatever you please. A free-standing flag display case will be more flexible, however, as you could change its environment more easily. The options for decoration are endless  – mantlepieces, bookshelf, and table decor. Choose whichever option best suits your vision.

4. Customization options 

Fourth, consider if you want further customization options. Crafted Cases offers engraved service emblems, embedded shell casings, engraved service mottos, and personal engraved plates. This is another nice way to make a flag display case yours, personalized to the person you’re honoring. It adds a sentimental touch that makes the flag case all the more meaningful.

5. Ease of access and maintenance 

Fifth, consider ease of access and maintenance. Look for cases that feature easy-open closures or removable back panels, allowing you to handle the flag with care without causing damage. Crafted Cases’ flag display cases ensure easy access with turn-button closures. They also ensure a safe product with a felt bottom for furniture protection and double strength glass. Make sure to dust the exterior and clean the glass to keep your flag display case looking fresh and brand new.


Finally, consider recommendations and read reviews. Before making a final decision, take the time to read customer reviews and testimonials about different flag display cases. Reviews can provide valuable insights into the quality, durability, and overall satisfaction of other customers who have purchased and used the same product. You can also consult family members, friends, or Crafted Cases to help you make an informed decision and ensure you choose a flag display case that meets your expectations.


Choosing the right flag display case is an important and meaningful decision. By considering the factors above, you can make sure the one you’ve selected is the perfect fit to honor our soldiers.
