Empire Coach Builders Case Study

October 2021

Customised double canopy Golf Sports Umbrella with Union Jack flag print

Client: Empire Coach Builders

Product: Golf Sports Umbrella

Customisation on umbrella: Digital Print on the internal and external canopies

This customised double canopy Golf Sports Umbrella was created for luxury horsebox manufacturers, Empire Coach Builders. Empire Coach Builders bring together over 50 years of experience in manufacturing, converting and refurbishing horseboxes. Empire Coach Builders hold a stellar reputation of quality, tradition, and innovation. The company’s mission is to create a product that is British Built with emphasis on strength and long-lasting qualities, so we were the perfect supplier to support their brand values.

We created a stunning Automatic Golf Sports Umbrella with a double canopy, straight handle, and Pantone matched panels along with print of the union jack on the external canopy and a bespoke pattern on the inside canopy. The umbrella consists of the company’s logo on 4 outer canopy panels and print of the union jack on the other 4 panels. The bright red of the panels was matched to the client’s Pantone reference of their logo to complement the luxury of the brand and emphasise the red within the Union Jack print. This was the perfect fit, as it emphasises the quintessentially British nature of the brand.



There are multiple options for custom branded umbrellas, and we can combine a multitude of techniques to create the branded umbrella that you are looking for. For this design, we used digital printing for the panels on both the internal and external canopies. Digitally printed umbrellas allow for panel printing using vibrant colours and patterns.

Each umbrella model includes customisation options to suit your budget or lead time. It maybe you need an umbrella quickly and therefore we’ll offer you a UK manufactured umbrella which we can turn around within 2-3 weeks. Customisation options are limited to a logo print on a UK manufactured umbrella, but if you have a slightly longer lead time then we can create a more bespoke umbrella, as with the Empire Coach Builders Automatic Sports Golf Umbrella.

More premium bespoke umbrella options include engraved handle rings, and umbrella carry cases. Both are great ways to include subtle branding. Personalised umbrella carry cases work well for sports umbrellas and golf umbrellas, particularly. For example, customising umbrella carry cases with a company logo. By doing this, the brand presence is evident, even when the umbrella is closed and being transported around a golf or sporting event.
Another way to reinforce branding, is with printed and woven labels. These are great way to reinforce the presence of the brand logo or an understated brand stamp, or slogan.

Along with customised branded umbrellas, we also manufacture bespoke bags. Find out more about our bags and complete your branded portfolio of merchandise with branded metalwork, drinkware and much more.
