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!
