Promotional Umbrellas - Quality Counts
If you’ve decided to use promotional umbrellas to publicize your company, you’ll want to opt for the highest quality that your budget can stand.
When it comes to a promotional item that will get the use – and give your company the exposure that you get – with promotional umbrellas turned inside out in the dustbin? Certainly not the message that you want them to get, is it? That's why it's important to look for quality workmanship in the promotional umbrellas that you choose as a marketing message.
A quality promotional umbrella that lasts for years does more than look good for your company image, though. It also continues to represent and publicize your company for as long as it is in use. Keep in mind that the added expense of buying a better quality umbrella pays off in years more return on the investment.
With that said, what should you look for in a quality umbrella?
A good quality umbrella will be built on a strong, high quality frame. Aluminum is common, but fiberglass frames are becoming far more popular thanks to the strength and flexibility of the material.
Vented canopies make umbrellas far less prone to being turned inside out by the wind. If you'll be distributing your promotional umbrellas in an area where the wind can blow up suddenly and strong, consider opting for a golf umbrella with a vented canopy.
Ease of Use
Nothing is more frustrating than struggling to open or close your brolly in a rainstorm. If you can, find a sample of the umbrellas that you're considering so that you can try them out. If not, ask your account representative to make a recommendation. A representative of a promotional items company should be familiar with the quality of the products that the company sells.Promotional umbrellas make excellent corporate promotional gifts. Across the internet you'll find a variety of leading promotional gifts and items suppliers featuring a wide range of all types of promotional umbrellas, including screen-printed umbrellas and specialty dyed promotional umbrellas.
