Our Best Selling Promotional Items: Umbrellas

Promotional Umbrellas have long been one of our most popular promotional items. They are a great giveaway opportunity that offers a large imprint area with high visibility and can be extraordinarily useful for your clients. However, with all the varieties, choosing the right umbrella for your message can be a little challenging. Below are some helpful tips on the sorts of things to consider when choosing the perfect umbrella to giveaway

The Types Of Promotional Umbrellas Available:

As well as different finishes and materials they also have different opening mechanisms. These practical, promotional umbrellas will help your customers when they need it the most.

Branding Opportunities

The opportunities for branding on these items are massively varying from umbrella to umbrella but the basics are often:

  • Printing areas – these are very generous and are one of the largest print areas of all the promotional items. Opportunities to print in full colour are common but the option for fewer colours and therefore less cost are always available.
  • Additional print areas – often specific umbrellas will allow extra areas for print like the covers or the handles.
  • Umbrella colours – the canopies can often be customised to match your company Pantone colours or if not then there will be a range of colours that will provide a best near match.

Additional Features

Remember there are all sorts of extras that are available too. Often you can specify materials used or even handles, having straight or a curve, carbon or wood shafts. There's been a rise in novelty umbrellas with cute characters and shapes on the canopy (like ears). Some can come with a light in the handle or even a light that runs the length of the stem!

Offering one of the largest print areas of all portable promotional items and the high visibility umbrellas offer makes them the fantastic branded merchandise. Your customers perceive them as high value, extremely useful and are likely to keep then for a long length of time. As for who, when or where to give out to? Well, the opportunities are many - from golf courses to schools & universities, to conferences and trade shows just being a small section, any audience will appreciate receiving a personalised umbrella.
