Custom printed outdoor patio-style umbrellas, are amongst the most popular outdoor advertising products to choose from, mainly because it is a dual-purpose product. Advertise your brand or product and be protected from the sun and elements. Fold up our custom printed umbrellas or parasols for transportable branding.

Manufacturing custom umbrellas or parasols

We custom manufacture our umbrellas and parasols in two different poplar sizes:

  • 2000 x 2000mm (2 x 2m)
  • 2000 x 2200mm (2 x 2.2m)

For branding of these umbrellas or parasols we use a material called Gabberdene, which is branded on, using a method called Dye Sublimation Printing. This is the same process, and waterproof material combination we use, when manufacturing custom printed gazebos.

The hardware of custom umbrellas or parasols are manufactured and assembled with a combination of aluminium, steel and PVC connectors. Our 2 x 2m parasol is packed in a slipcover size of 1770 x 340mm and weighs approximately 6,3kg.

We quote separately on base units. The same base unit can be used for different sized parasols. We can supply the print only (canopy) for the parasol however, if it was not supplied by us, we will have to physically see the hardware and skin before we are able to supply a quote. Expect an increase of 30% if we have to custom manufacture the canopy or skin.

Artwork for umbrella printing or parasol printing

As in the case of most of our outdoor products, we do charge an additional fee to prepare your artwork onto our patio umbrella template. To save costs, we can supply these respective templates. You can then prepare the artwork onto it and send it back to us for print.


Redblockโ€™s office is in Pretoria, Silverton where orders may be collected within business hours.

Due to the large size and weight we generally donโ€™t courier the umbrella or parasol orders because it becomes too costly.
