What do I need to know before I get in touch with you about my promotional umbrella?
How can I approve the finished promotional umbrella?
Once an order is placed, we can produce a one-off sealed-sample for final approval. This will give you the opportunity to approve colour and design prior to production. If the canopy or frame is being pantone matched, we will supply swatches for approval to ensure the colours are acceptable to you.
Can you match my corporate colours for the promotional umbrella?
Yes. Our canopy material is available in a wide range of colours, so we are confident we can match the promotional umbrellas to your corporate image.
Do I have a choice of canopy colours for my promotional umbrella?
Yes. Our canopy material is available in a wide range of about thirty stock colours and we can usually get pretty close to matching generic colours. If you have unusual colours or require the match to be closer than our available stock – we can pantone match to specific colours on demand. If you order quantity is at least 300 units, we will do it for FREE.

Can you provide a design service for my promotional umbrella?
Yes we can. If you tell us what you are looking for, we can produce a number of canopy design options for you to choose from. It’s a free service if you order the umbrellas.
Why do you need artwork from me for the umbrella?
If you want us to reproduce your logo onto your promotional umbrellas, we need to have an electronic version to work from in a good resolution – say 300dpi. Your company will probably already have your logo in the version we need – either from your stationery printers or from the designer who created it. You can email this file to us, or if too large to email upload it via our ftp link.
How much can I customise my promotional umbrellas?
As much or as little as you like. You can choose the canopy colours, the words or images to be printed on the canopy, the handle shape and material, the tie wrap colour and fastening and include a sleeve. In addition, on most umbrella styles – we can incorporate your logo or message within a small disk in the base of the handle, so your brand is visible even when your umbrella is folded.
How long will it take to receive my promotional umbrellas?
We can give you the best prices if we have your order eight weeks or more before you need the umbrellas. If your project is on a short lead time, however, we can print and dispatch your promotional umbrellas in much less time.
