Like a walking billboard for your brand but with a practical purpose, a promotional umbrella is something that you will want to have handy throughout the day. Umbrellas are a great gift because they can be used by everyone and come in a wide variety of styles and colours.
A promotional umbrella, also known as a parasol is a handheld folding canopy that provides the user with protection from the rain and other elements. They are supported by metal or fibreglass ribs and are custom printed on one or multiple panels with a company logo for marketing purposes.
An umbrella is one of those items where you don’t need it until you desperately need it. So it’s one of those items where end consumers will not commonly buy them for themselves. Allowing you an excellent opportunity to get your brand into their hands.
They are a popular gift idea that business owners and marketers are using utilising they’re practical, last for a really long time and allow for a large decoration area for easy visibility.
Branded umbrellas are available at a variety of price points to meet different budgets. In general, there are three things to look at when comparing the quality of umbrellas.
Does it have a metal or fibreglass frame?
Is the opening mechanism automatic or manual?
What material is the handle made from?
