For Brand Awareness Come Rain or Shine Choose Promotional Umbrellas

From golf umbrellas and telescopic brollies to umbrellas made from recycled materials and even ones that glow in the dark, we've got the perfect branded brolly for you.

Five Facts About Rain for You to Pour Over 💧

So, we know that the UK receives an awful lot of rain (an average of 1,154mm a year, in fact) but did you know these five facts about the rain?

1. There's such a thing as Phantom Rain

Sometimes rain can fall from the sky without ever actually reaching the ground. This is called 'phantom rain' and happens in certain conditions when rain evaporates before it touches the earth.

2. Raindrops aren't teardrop shaded

When a raindrop first forms it's a spherical shape but as it falls hitting other raindrops, the shape starts to change. All the while, resistance in the air causes the bottom of the droplet to flatten and curve, so by the time a raindrop reaches the ground it's more of a jelly bean shape, rather than a teardrop shape.

3. We spend 6 months of our lives talking about it

Yes, that's right - Brits spend an average of 6 months of their life talking about the weather. In fact, 9 in 10 of us have spoken about the weather in the last six hours. 

4. London is one of the driest places in the UK

Alongside Cambridge, London is one of the driest cities in the UK! It also doesn't even make the top 10 wettest cities in Europe.

5. April showers, in January

We all know the famous saying "April showers", but did you know that January is actually the wettest month of the year?

With all this being said, branded umbrellas are a no-brainer choice when it comes to getting your logo seen in the UK. So, which promotional umbrella will you choose?

Stretch your marketing budget that bit further with our small but mighty telescopic umbrellas. Starting from as little as £3.21 per unit is our Value Supermini Telescopic Umbrella.

Make A Statement with Unique Promotional Umbrellas

A truly fantastic branded umbrella that is sure to leave a lasting impact with the end recipient is the Recycled PET Vented Auto Umbrella. Each umbrella is complete with a vented canopy for increased stability in windy conditions, an automatic opening for improved practicality, and of course, your logo printed to one panel.

Perfect for adding a wow factor to your brand awareness is our Fare Colour Magic Automatic Umbrellas. The innovative colour-changing print of these branded umbrellas means they show a pretty design of raindrops and clouds by default but when they get wet, the pattern changes into a colourful rainbow. You can also have your company logo applied using this stunning colour change method (pricing is subject to sight of the logo).

Ensure You're Seen in the Dark with These Printed Umbrellas

If your target audience includes avid walkers or they commute to work via foot, then gifting them with these Fare Reflective Edge Umbrellas is a no-brainer! Complete with reflective edges, they help the end-user stay safe on the roads in dark and rainy conditions.

Another brilliant umbrella for keeping safe whilst in the dark is the Fare Safebrella Automatic LED Umbellas, featuring reflective corners and an LED torch integrated into the handle. You can even add individual names to the handles for an added personal touch!
