Branded umbrellas are an excellent and inexpensive way to promote your business. All you need to do is to visit an umbrella manufacturing or branding company and request the company to personalize your product. Most of the companies will personalize the units for free or for a small fee. In most cases, the branding is in form of screen-printing but if you are looking for a high-end unit the company will personalize the umbrella shafts with laser engraving.

Tips to consider when getting the promotional umbrellas

For you to have a great experience with the promotional products you need to consider a number of tips. One of the tips is that you should work with a reputable company. You can work with the local or overseas companies. If working with an overseas company, take your time to research the company and ensure that it has a great reputation. In addition to reputation, also check the delivery timescales.

Chances are that you are looking to use the umbrella during a show or an event with many people present. Since most events are done once a year, the last thing that you want is the company delivering the product late. You should work with a company that assures you delivery within your timeframe.

When ordering the promotional units, pay close attention to the size of the unit. Different businesses have different promotional needs. You should choose a size that meets your needs. Since you are looking to get the word out about your company, experts recommend that you go with large umbrellas. To create variety, include units of different styles. You can order sun, rain, parasol, or any other style. In addition to size, also consider the attractiveness of the product. While most of the businesses give away promotional umbrellas to potential customers, there are some customers that might be interested in buying your units especially if they have a strong attachment to your brand. For your royal customers to spend money on your unit the umbrella should be beautiful and made from high-quality material.

Working with the umbrella company

I have mentioned above that you should work with a reputable company that will ensure that your umbrellas are professionally designed and delivered on time. To have an easy time, you should work with a company that has a team that will work with you from the initial stages to the delivery of the completed product. The company should help you in choosing the right font, color, and style. The company should also offer a returns policy in the event there is a manufacturing or printing defect. It's common for units to develop problems, especially when being manufactured in large amounts. The returns policy will allow you to return the unit without any complexities.


Using a promotional umbrella the right way will go a long way in taking your business to another level. To have an easy time work with a company that will be your partner through the entire process.
