Personalized umbrellas are a great way to promote your business, and while you may only need them for one promotion, they will be used all year long by the recipients. What does that mean for you? Maximum exposure! Custom umbrellas will garner your company with much more attention than a fad or gimmick item. They are used year round by just about everyone, keeping you in the eyes of your customers while advertising your brand everywhere they go.
Umbrellas aren’t just for rainy days. Many people also use them to stay out of direct sunlight to help prevent skin cancer. Mothers use them on baby carriages to protect their children, golfers use them on the fairway, and you even see them on the beach and boardwalks where shade is not provided or available.
Available with the option of opening and closing manually or automatically, promotional umbrellas come in many shapes, sizes, and colors, and often include a case or wrist strap for easy storage and handling. Ranging from mini umbrellas with smaller coverage that folds down to as small as 7-9” for easy storage and portability, to larger golf and executive size umbrellas with as much as a 64” arc to cover several people at the same time.
Safety umbrellas are ideal for safety or health-related promotions and would be perfect for a school to use as a handout or fundraiser. Many umbrellas are also vented wind-proof for areas that are prone to tropical or strong storms. The newest innovation to hit the market is the inverted umbrella – it opens and closes in reverse to allow users to easily enter and exit an automobile or door without getting wet.
As you can see, using umbrellas in your promotions not only provides customers with a useful and reusable item that will last for years to come, but also provides your company with countless opportunities to be seen by potential future customers who see them being used around town!
