Print 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 PRINTING: 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.

Digital Heat Transfer

This printing technology allows us to print full color photograph or image on our umbrellas with digital heat transfer printing. This is a method of printing fibers 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 defined images.

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

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 finer details to create a bespoke, premium promotional umbrella.
