How can I put a company Logo on a Hand-held Mic?

Hi guys, quick question where can I get one of those plastic "things" to go over a handheld mic to put a company logo on? For example a reporter at a football game interviews the headcoach and on the mic is says ESPN. Where can I get on of these so I can glue my company logo on? I have no clue on this, thanks!

They're called microphone flags

hmm...

I've used flags for a while but they were always sent to me with a logo, but where could I find a template to design and print out and adhese to the flag surface?

I've got a friend to attatched micro-LED arrays, you can put text on them!

But... I've been using the logo'd windscreens... more popular in the UK. (Available from Markertek also)

You can also find them at Location Sound or Trew Audio.

As for making your own logos, you can just print to Avery labels and cut and stick the logo on the flag for a low-budget approach. I like the results from the white labels more than the clear labels, but if you are not using a white flag then you may need to go with a clear label. You can also get logo work silkscreened directly onto the flag, which is more robust over time, but more costly as well.

I still laugh every time I think back to my days at Surfguru.com. They actually used a lapel mic on a screwdriver, just so that they could use their mic flag.
