Branding your very own umbrellas or cafe barriers is a very economical way of marketing. The cost of printing is determined by the quantity of umbrellas, the size and complexity of printing. Contact us with your requirements for a detailed quotation.

Screen Printing

  • Best suited to logos that feature 1-5 spot colours
  • Printed on umbrella canvas – many colours to choose from but they must be selected from our available range (closest match to corporate colour)

  • Colours specified as Pantone/PMS codes for colour-matching of print

Digital Printing
