About Fellow

Fellow Flag Co is a handmade shop selling heirloom-quality personalized pennants. The shop was started in 2020 as a COVID project that quickly took off and became a full-time job. Over the past four years, Fellow has seen continuing growth and is ready to take its next big step by adding to the team. We currently sell exclusively on Etsy, but the goal for the following year is to add new products, build a standalone website and selling platform, and begin to use Instagram and other marketing tools to their full potential. We’re certain the only piece missing from this puzzle is a new team member, and can’t wait to grow this little shop together!
