Summer sunshine brings with it a wave of outdoor activity. Parks, beaches, and patios become vibrant hubs, teeming with people seeking relaxation and fun. For businesses, this presents a golden opportunity to showcase their brand and capture attention in a unique way: with custom printed parasols.

With over 40 years of parasol printing experience, we understand the power a well-designed parasol can wield. It’s more than just shade – it’s a giant, eye-catching billboard soaring above your customers, promoting your brand message across a vast, 360-degree canvas.

At Sycal, we’re dedicated to providing a comprehensive range of custom printed parasols to suit your specific needs and budget. From the timeless elegance of classic hardwood frames to the sleek modernity of cantilevered designs, we offer a variety of options to complement any aesthetic. We also cater to your material preferences, with water-resistant polyester and eco-friendly cotton canopies at your disposal.

Although we can produce any type of parasol frame, we offer four main varieties:

  • Hardwood Parasols – Manufactured from sustainable Nyatoh hardwood, our wooden parasols are designed to stand the test of time. Equipped with a brass pulley system, they’re easy to use and put away. With a range of frames available, we can help create circular and square parasols with as many panels as you require. Both rot and fade resistant, these parasols are designed to withstand the elements, making them perfect for outdoor cafes, gardens, and restaurants.
  • Aluminium Parasols – Designed for practicality, aluminium parasols are a fantastic tool to help promote your brand outdoors. These parasols are water, fade, and rot resistant, and can be customised to meet your criteria. Aluminium parasols are ideal for prolonged outdoor use and are available with optional tilting mechanisms and crankshafts.
  • Steel Garden Parasols – Our traditional pub garden style steel parasols are manufactured from weather resistant steel with cotton or polyester canvases. With a strong frame and ribs, our garden parasols are designed with prolonged outdoor use in mind.
  • Cantilever Parasols – The Cantilever Parasol offers greater flexibility of movement and positioning. This parasol is a great option for large open areas to provide much-needed protection from the sun. Constructed from sturdy and water-resistant aluminium, cantilever parasols are completely customisable and available in different sizes, shapes and styles.

Custom printed parasols transcend the simple function of providing shade. They act as a strategic marketing tool, offering a multitude of benefits:

  • Enhanced Brand Awareness: Imagine a brightly coloured parasol emblazoned with your logo, standing tall amidst a sea of faces. Its vibrant presence instantly grabs attention, leaving a lasting impression on those who relax beneath its shade. As people soak up the sun, your brand name is subtly imprinted in their minds, increasing brand recall long after they’ve left your space.
  • Targeted Advertising: Unlike traditional advertising with a broad reach, custom printed parasols allow you to get strategic. Place them precisely where your target audience frequents, maximising their impact. Picture a beach bar boasting a custom printed parasol emblazoned with its name and signature cocktail – a beacon for thirsty beachgoers!
  • Elevated Customer Experience: Providing a thoughtful amenity like shade fosters positive brand association. Customers appreciate the gesture, creating a sense of comfort and convenience that reflects positively on your brand. After all, happy customers are loyal customers!
  • Versatility for Every Occasion: The beauty of custom printed parasols lies in their adaptability. They’re ideal for trade shows, bustling markets, sporting events, or simply enhancing the aesthetics and functionality of your patio seating. With a variety of styles and sizes available, you can find the perfect fit for any occasion.
  • Cost-Effective Marketing: Compared to fleeting commercials or expensive billboard space, custom printed parasols offer exceptional value for money. They’re durable and reusable, providing long-term brand exposure at a minimal cost. Consider it an investment that keeps on giving!
