What to consider when branding your umbrella
Most umbrellas have 8 panels. It's best to print evenly on the umbrella, so this means you can print on all 8, 4 or the 2 opposite panels to an umbrella. Some umbrellas have an all-over canopy print. Stock colours can be very close to your brand colour, whilst Pantone matching can be a solution and ensure your brand perfectly matches panel colours, the cost of doing this can be quite high, and often it's better to choose the closest stock colour available. We can help you to find this happy medium.
New branded umbrella styles to the market
New entrants to the Umbrella marketplace include reversible umbrellas. These break the normal rules of the convention for umbrellas as they open inside out. This means that when travelling in cars or a taxi you can open the umbrella more easily and not risk catching it on car doors keeping you dry more effectively. To stop the spread of germs and covid umbrellas now offer individual personalisation to the handle. This allows your staff and customers to know which umbrella is theirs and means other people don't use it. All over canopy designs are now also very popular, which allows the print to be shown continuously between panels.
