Choose from our variety of shapes and profiles then choose your brand positioning from these multiple combinations of available print placements:
PRINTING ON THE TOPSIDE The parasol’s outstretched canopy offers prime branding real estate. Visible from a distance and from above, make the most of your parasol’s outdoor exposure by printing on the canopy topside.
PRINTING ON ADDED VALANCE
The vertical sides of a valance offer the perfect space to communicate your brand’s message, directly in the line of sight just above head height and visible up close or from a distance.
PRINTING ON THE UNDERSIDE The underside of its canopy is a great space for people to get up close and personal with your brand and its message. Predominantly viewed whilst enjoying the shade and shelter at close quarters.
PRINTING ON COVER BAG We can make sure your brand is getting the maximum exposure possible, even when your parasol’s canopy is closed, by printing your company branding on your protective nylon canvas cover bag.
We are proud to provide branding solutions to these fine companies
