Umbrella Printing Techniques
The Umbrella Planet team are Aussie experts when it comes to printing your custom design on our high-quality umbrellas. When you order custom bulk umbrellas from us, your logo or slogan is branded onto umbrella panels using one of the following printing methods.
This is the most popular method for printing on umbrellas and the vast majority of personalised corporate umbrellas you spot around town will feature screen printing. Screen printing is long-lasting and suitable for most standard, clean-cut logos that use 1-2 solid colours. If your design is more colourful or intricate, then we recommend Full Colour Digital Transfer as the best option for customising your umbrella.
Full Colour Digital Transfer
Umbrella Planet tends to utilise digital transfer when dealing with intricate logos, particularly those with gradients or other specialised colouring techniques. Digital transfer allows for these details to be placed on your umbrella, while screen printing is more suited to basic designs. As with t-shirt transfers, umbrella transfers can fade and peel over time if the surface isn't cared for gently and allowed to dry after each use out of the sun.
Sublimation Direct Print
A cutting edge technique proudly brought to you by Umbrella Planet, sublimation involves placing your logo directly into the fabric. While a multitude of colours can be used for your logo, the technique can only be used on white umbrella panels. Because a sublimated logo is part of the umbrella's fabric, it won't fade or peel off. Your logo is permanently imbedded in the umbrella panels.
Please contact the friendly Umbrella Planet staff to discuss which printing method is right for your promotion.
