How to supply artwork for umbrellas

Here at The Umbrella Workshop, we pride ourselves on having made brollies for some really BIG brands: Bollinger, Bentley and Mandarin Oriental Hotels to name but a few! Companies like these often employ agencies to take care of promotional products like their logo umbrellas, but we’re just as happy working with more boutique brands looking for premium products with their logos on.

Having already produced some very special umbrellas in our time (for designers and diplomats alike) our team rose to the challenge and delivered something suitably regal… complete with royal crest, of course.
