The Ultimate Guide For Promotional Umbrellas

The Ultimate Guide For Promotional Umbrellas





Believe it or not, there is much more to Promotional Umbrellas than what meets the eye, or perhaps, what we care to realise! Well, today we delve much deeper into this product to show you just how important the details are for you as a buyer. 

Below, we present to you a selection of print, frame and material options, followed by their individual advantages and properties. Also, we talk about the possibilities when it comes to bespoke brollies!  


UV Printing

UV printing is different from conventional printing, it’s still ink on paper but the ink dries when exposed to UV light meaning harmful solvents evaporating into the air are reduced.


  • Environmentally friendly
  • Low energy
  • No waste emission free
  • LED curing
  • Large block colour matching
  • Colour registration without overlap
  • No limit to print colours
  • Smooth even finishing
  • Remarkable level of detail including small designs





Soft Feel Print

Soft feel print involves transferring your design from paper to the fabric panels. To do this, both paper and fabric are fed through a hot roller which turns the ink into a gas, and staining the fabric panels. Staining the fabric means no colour deterioration will occur.Fashion-001-copy

We supply two different types of umbrellas, one being the Nylon Umbrella, the other being Polyester. We offer a wide range of Nylon umbrellas at different grades: the 170T, 182T and 190T (all reflect the amount of stitches within a set area). This determines the thickness,  just like how paper is measured in GSM, we measure the fabric in accordance with these grades.

The higher the number, the better the fabric. Polyester is a more premium material as it doesn’t stretch in both wet and dry conditions.



Storm-proof frames automatically will return your promotional umbrella back to its normal position after being inverted from a strong gust of wind! Umbrella frames come in 10, 8 and 6 panel variations. The higher the number of panels, the more ribs are in place, and therefore the sturdier the product!

An array of materials are used within the frame which includes: fibreglass, aluminium and even bamboo. The stability of the umbrella is determined, to a large extent, by the frame strength and material.
