CUSTOM ORDERS


CUSTOM BRANDED UMBRELLAS
We supply main businesses with custom umbrellas to keep their clients, guests and staff dry, when the weather turns wet or sunny. We have many different price points and styles available to meet every budget. 

There are many print options available for our umbrellas. We use and combine a number of different print processes to create your individual umbrella, such as:
+ Silk Screen Printing
+ Full Color Heat Transfer Printing
+ Full Color Dye Sublimation Printing

We can create and design eye-catching promotional printed umbrellas to be brand specific. We will always advise you on the most cost effective methods for your design.

LOCAL - quick turnaround, low minimum orders
The printing is done on ready-made in stock rain and patio umbrellas. As the umbrella covers are already made, we are restricted on the size of the Logo/Image, as we cannot print close to the seams/edge of the panels.

OFF SHORE - more customization options and higher minimums, longer production
The printing is done before the rain or patio umbrellas are made. In terms of design, the sky is the limit. You can be as creative as you like. Ocean Freight is included with your order. The turn around time is 90 to 110 days. If you require your order quicker, Air Freight is available but at an additional cost.

We can create private label umbrellas, with every final detail being custom to your brand.

Printing Methods:  

Silk Screen
This traditional method is highly effective and long lasting. An image is transferred to the umbrella surface by ink, which is pressed through a stenciled ‘silk’ screen and treated with light- sensittive emulsion. A screen is required for each color to be printed. Pantone Color match available.We also print in metallic ink and reflective ink - a great way to make your umbrella design visible at night.

LOCAL PRODUCTION: The print size using this technique on ready-made in stock rain umbrellas is roughly 9 inches wide x 7 inches tall. There is a restriction to not printing to the edge or close to the seams.

OFF SHORE PRODUCTION: When we custom manufacture our umbrellas off shore, we can screen print the panels prior to sewing. This allows amazing effects such as all over prints and bold messages and branding.

Full Color Heat Transfer
This printing technology allows us to print full color photograph or image on our umbrellas with heat transfer printing. This is a method of printing bers with disperse dyes. The design, or print, is transferred from pre-printed paper onto the umbrella by contact heat, then the dyes are absorbed by the fabric. Heat transfer prining is great for producing clear, very well dened images.

LOCAL PRODUCTION: The print size using this technique on ready-made in stock rain umbrellas is roughly 9 inches wide x 7 inches tall. There is a restriction to not printing to the edge or close to the seams.

OFF SHORE PRODUCTION: When we custom manufacture our umbrellas off shore, we can screen print the panels prior to sewing. This allows amazing effects such as all over prints and bold messages and branding.

Full Color Dye Sublimation
Dye-sublimation printing is a digital printing technology using full color artwork that works with polyester and polymer-coated substrates.
The end result of the sublimation process is a nearly permanent, high resolution, full color print.  Because the dyes are infused into the substrate at the modecular level, rather than applied at a  topical level (such as with silk screen and direct to garment printing), the prints will not crack, fade or peel from the substrate under normal conditions.

Available with OFF SHORE PRODUCTION

Custom Design
Custom umbrella design is what we specialise in. We offer a number of design options for your branded promotional umbrella. These include: printing on the canopy, interior canopy, piping and rib tape, tie-bands, customized handles and frames.

Branding options most umbrellas have 8 panels, but this can vary. A double canopy allows your message to be displayed inside or out.
Other detail perimeter or rib take, a printed tie band or sleeve and handle are ner details to create a bespoke, premium promotional umbrella.

We would like to receive VECTOR BASED graphics. Such as Adobe Illustrator AI or EPS
If possible, please supply PANTONE numbers.


In a worst-case scenario, you can send us a .png or .jpeg, but the quality of these is often poor, and you might expect to incur some artwork charges as we do our best to bring it to the stage where you'll be proud to have it on your umbrella.

Next step, we will create a digital proof for your approval and send you a invoice for a 50% deposit. The balance is due once the umbrellas are ready.
