Umbrella print options

Double Canopy – Internal Print Umbrellas

If you are after the WOW factor then this is the way to go. We can create all over prints and single continuous quality printed images on the inside and/or outside. As an advertising medium this gives greater real estate.

All Over Print Umbrellas

A continuous print over all 8 panels of the umbrella takes great skill to line all the panels up to create a single image. Over the years we have honed our skills at making these types of umbrellas that make a real impact.

Logo Print Custom Umbrellas

Simple but still a very effective way to brand your umbrella. Your logo can be screen printed onto the outer panels and the panels can be your chosen colour – logos can be solid colour of full graduated digital print assets. We provide Pantone matched canopies as well as a range of stock fabrics.

Photo Print Umbrellas

Using a high resolution image and the latest technology we can digitally print the photo onto the canopy before construction. This can either be all over print or individual panels. A striking way to really personalise your branded umbrella – our umbrellas are museum and gallery grade and  considered to be the best in the industry.

Pantone Matched Branded Umbrellas

We carry a range of stock fabrics and can also dye and print fabric to match client Pantone and ensure brand consistency. Pantone matching umbrellas are available in any style, so choose a folding umbrella, golf umbrella or walking umbrella to suit your requirements.

Custom umbrella styles

Custom Umbrella Styles

We carry a wide range of umbrellas suitable for many occasions and client preference.

Golf/sport style Umbrellas:

Various models and styles available and the perfect sporting umbrella. These are our largest models of umbrellas that we manufacture. The length of the pole and panels offer large branding estate. They are also the most rebust of our range and designed to take whatever nature can throw at it!

City Umbrellas:

These well known umbrellas due to their iconic crock handle or curved handle stick are favoured by urban professionals such as estate agents and the finance sector. Its practical size makes it a useful companion in a crowded urban environment making it the perfect choice for city pavements.

Wood Stick Umbrellas

Timeless and classic in terms of their aesthetic appeal making them a popular choice for many of our clients. A durable and practical choice, boasting premium gun metal quality fittings as well as great branding potential. Popular not just for its classical elegance, but because it can be considered an eco-freindly alternative to our other models.

Folding and Telescopic Umbrellas:

No surprises by the name – this is the smallest umbrella we manufacture. The telescopic folding length of the pole, folds neatly when retracted and can be enclosed within a branded carry sleeve that matches the panels of the umbrella. Often chosen as a corporate gift or premium promotional giveaway, this umbrella is a great vehicle for promotional messages.

Luxury Branded Umbrellas:

These are our speciality, established over a decade ago, we refined our manufacturing facilities to create the best custom luxury branded umbrellas on the market and built a solid reputation with big brands. What sets us apart from other umbrella manufacturers are specifically the quality of materials we use for our umbrellas and our experienced team. Premium-grade polyester, called pongee, is what we use for the panels of the umbrellas. This is customised with print or the actual panels can be matched to a Pantone reference of your choice. We also incorporate superb quality fittings including fibreglass shafts and ribs for durability which means that in extreme weather circumstances such as high wind, the umbrellas will hold their shape and maintain their credentials which mean they will continue to endorse your luxury brand and won’t end up in landfill like so many others.

Custom Folding:

Available in UK stock – if your lead times are short we can turn these around in 2-3 weeks, available in 32 colours, overprinted for UK delivery. If you have longer lead times we can work with you to create a more personalised umbrella design.

Printed Vented Umbrellas :

One word – Sturdy! These allow the wind to pass through to prevent the umbrella from folding inside itself. Instead of a panel being made from one piece of fabric, it is made from two and sewn together differently to allow wind or heat to escape through the top of the umbrella. Choose this for comfort and stability. Whilst we usually make these on a Golf or Sports frame, we can also incorporate is functionality on other Umbrella frames.

Specialist in the design and manufacture of impactful branded and promotional umbrellas




No fancy wind tunnel needed, just an open top car, and the British countryside.

All our umbrellas are designed for weather!

We care about the planet – Eco Umbrellas.

Where possible we at the Umbrella Workshop:

  • Chooses sustainable materials for the canopies of the umbrella such as RPET which reduces waste (RPET is made from recycled PET plastic such as water bottles, reducing the need to manufacture virgin PET plastic).
  • Opts for UV printing which is more energy efficient and reduces carbon emissions.
  • Offers a choice of more eco-friendly materials for the umbrella body (ie: wooden body is made from fast-growing laminated softwood that is sustainable).
  • Carefully choose our supply chain who have a similar ethos.
  • Continually review our logistic partners and freight options.
  • Our UK factory is carbon neutral, generating energy from wind, solar and hyro power.
