Promotional umbrellas

Direct screen printing is the best procedure to use on umbrellas. Every time the umbrella is folded the print crumples with the fabric. Directly applied ink is best for such treatment.


Methods used:

  • Direct screen printing is the most common technique used for printing on umbrellas.
  • Thermal transfer sheet printing for the batch production of smaller and more complex designs with the maximum resolution of the raster (if any) of 65 lpi.
  • Digital thermal transfer printing for low-volume printing or for fine, full-colour designs.

We would advise against:

  • Preparing a print design larger than the lower third of one umbrella segment.
  • Bringing the print close to the ribs of the umbrella.
