Choosing Between Compact and Golf Umbrellas

Wednesday, 5 August 2020 11:56:19 AM Australia/Sydney

Selecting the right umbrella can be a difficult task. More importantly, you need to be equipped with an umbrella that is suited for your needs whilst effectively promoting your brand name. Here is a comparison between compact and golf umbrellas to help you decide which would be best for you.

Woman With Compact Umbrella

Benefits of Branded Compact Umbrellas

For a simple and portable parasol, compact umbrellas are a must. These small folding umbrellas can be taken anywhere and everywhere, even fitting in your purse or backpack. Consider your target demographic to see whether this would be an umbrella required for them. Coupled with the right branding and your name or logo, this will be a product that shines even in the darkest storm. So, if you are always on the go, this item is a must and one that will come in handy in multiple situations.

Benefits of Custom Golf Umbrellas

Custom golf umbrellas are notorious for their huge surface area and large canopy. These umbrellas will shield you from all the elements while keeping your brand looking classy. These parasols feature premium construction, nylon canopies and an acrylic coating to ensure water can never penetrate the fabric. Additionally, despite being designed for golfing occasions, this umbrella is certainly suited to other outdoor events and the beach. This umbrella will make an ever-lasting impression on anyone who sees it and will have your brand certainly remembered.

What Should You Choose?

Both umbrellas have their unique benefits. The choice for you really boils down to who will receive your umbrella, how often they will be expected to use and what your branding goals are. If you are looking for long occasions outdoors, go for the golf umbrella, but if you are just looking for a portable tool to shield you from the rain, the compact umbrella is your answer. Moreover, consider your branding needs and which umbrella will be more versatile in getting your unique name out into the public.

Components of a Promotional Umbrella

Monday, 22 June 2020 11:33:51 AM Australia/Sydney

Umbrellas are carefully constructed through detailed interworking mechanisms. Here is a quick rundown of all the key components in an umbrella and the way they work together to create a fantastic promotional tool.

Components of a Promotional Umbrella

Handle

The handle is the key feature for the user, especially when conditions are wet. Without a comfortable handle, no one will want to hold the umbrella. We like to use rubber handles for a soft and easy grip. Additionally, we offer either hook handles for a traditional feel or a modern sleek straight handle for a professional look. See our medium promotional umbrellas for ideas.

Frame and Shaft

Most of our umbrellas utilise a fibreglass shaft and a windproof frame. Fibreglass will not rot or corrode and hold its shape over time. We have determined this to be the most effective material for making a sturdy promotional umbrella. Additionally, the frame of an umbrella is essential for the ribbing of the canopy. This is what gives the umbrella its bubble open shape! Remember, if an umbrella is not durable, it will not survive during strong winds and thunderstorms.

Panels and Branding

Our umbrellas are designed with a vented canopy with strong polyester and/or a nylon blend. This is a fantastic material to combat rain but is also excellent for branding your unique name or logo. The panels are generally made of 8 sections to ensure full coverage over the user. Certain umbrellas utilise pongee as its material to withstand rain, dry quickly, fold easily and be coloured according to your brand! Check out our custom golf umbrellas for examples of large panels.

Ferrule, Runner and Other Components

The ferrule is the tip of the umbrella. It can be flat or made to a point. This holds the umbrella in place when expanded and offers protection for the lined rib frame. For modern umbrellas, there is also a runner that moves along the shaft of the umbrella to allow it to open, as well as a handle ring to stop the runner from moving too far. Even something as small as the handle strap can add flare to your umbrella and your brand!

The majority of our products here on Umbrella Planet are personal umbrellas, be they compact or golf-sized, that come individually branded for use during the odd rainy day we get here in Australia. However, we also stock an assortment of cafe umbrellas designed to protect diners and drinkers at outside venues. Today we're breaking down a little more about these custom items and who exactly uses them!

Customised cafe umbrellas need to be stored safely during high wind events and dried out properly when they get wet to prolong their lifespan, but generally speaking last quite some time making them good investments.

So Who Uses These Custom Products?

We've sold branded cafe umbrellas to the following organisations;

  • Pubs
  • Clubs
  • Restaurants
  • Cafés

Branding Options for Custom Umbrellas

Friday, 20 September 2019 1:18:16 PM Australia/Sydney

When you enquire with the Umbrella Planet team, one of the first pieces of information we'll want to know from you is how you would like your umbrella branded. There are a few popular options that we'll break down for you here so you have a better understanding for your next marketing campaign.

Branding Information for Umbrellas

Number of Colours For Branding

Our website price includes printing of your logo in one solid colour only. What does that mean? Well part of the way we break down pricing for our print products is how many colours you would like your logo printed in. The cheapest option is a one colour print using a screen print technique -- if your logo is in multiple colours then our graphic design team can assist in converting it to one colour only for your umbrella.

But what if you want more than one colour in your print? Well if you only need 2-3 solid (non-gradient) colours in your design, then we would price for additional screen print options. However, if your have a full-colour logo, a logo with colour gradients, or a photographic-style design then you may require a digital transfer or sublimation print, both of which involve printing your design in its full, colourful glory.

Whatever the logo colour, if you send through a copy of your design to our friendly sales team we can recommend options to suit both your budget and your branding requirements.

Number of Print Positions

The other way we determine customisation prices is how many panels you would like custom printed on your umbrella. Each panel in the umbrella contains one print position, the more panels you'd like decorated the more print positions you will require. Our website price includes your logo print on one panel only, but if you'd like printing on a second/third/fourth or more panels then that's definitely something we can accomodate.

When you enquire with your sales team let them know if you would like your design on multiple umbrella panels or if you're keen to go with the single-panel standard option. We can also provide pricing for multiple options if you're unsure which you'd prefer.

Still Unsure?

Don't worry, the Umbrella Planet team is here to help so contact us today and we'll be happy to guide you through all processes required to get you setup with bulk promotional umbrellas of your own!

How to Effectively Use Custom Umbrellas

Monday, 8 July 2019 10:57:20 AM Australia/Sydney

In the rainy season, it can get quite crowded on the streets with everyone using their umbrellas at the same time. It is common for individuals to get hit, struck or wet on by other people in the street. Unfortunately, bumping into one another is inevitable but here are some tips as to how better use your umbrella without disturbing those around you.

using custom umbrellas effectively

Size Matters

For the average person, it is recommended to use an umbrella that is suitable for the size of the individual. There is no point holding an umbrella suited for 2 people and annoying members of the public. Proportions are key and this also prevents against unneeded space distribution.

Know How to Manoeuvre Your Umbrella

In a large section of pedestrians, you need to know how to move your parasol up and down as to avoid oncoming traffic. As a rule of thumb, if you are taller than the opposite person you should move your umbrella up and over their heads as to avoid any collision. The converse goes for shorter people.

Avoid Multitasking

Moving through a densely packed area of people with an umbrella is similar to driving a car. Avoid texting or using your phone as to not bump into people or cause accidents. You also don’t want to damage your phone or let it fall into a puddle or down a sewer!

Store Your Umbrella When It’s Not in Use

People like to overuse their umbrellas whilst out in the rain. But when you move into buildings or undercover areas be sure to close your umbrella before entering. This will minimise your impact on the space and prevent other dry people from getting wet. Additionally, it will be easier to move around and allow more people to get undercover.

What better for the autumn months than to give your employees compact umbrellas to promote the brand while staying dry between meetings.

Make sure your team isn’t left out in the cold (and rain) with these fun size brollies.
