The folding umbrella is a promotional product anyone could find a use for and keep on hand at all times. This plays well into the idea of giving your business more exposure. If you pick the right kind and ensure the umbrellas are well-made, soon enough, they’ll crowd the streets — and take your company logo with them.
We can trace the history of umbrellas as far back as 4,000 years ago. They were first made of peacock feathers, papyrus and palm leaves and were actually meant to protect us from the sun rather than rain. Today, the umbrella canopies are often made of pongee and polyester. The shafts, which have to be very durable, can contain aluminium, fibreglass, wood, and steel.
The folding umbrellas we all love so much these days are a more modern invention. The inventor, Hans Haupt, tinkered with umbrellas for years until he came up with a pocket “shortenable umbrella.” He called it “Knirps,” which translates into tyke or munchkin, and was granted a patent for it in 1934.
When choosing promotional products, you ought to pick the ones that would find their way into the users’ everyday lives. Luckily, folding umbrellas come with an array of useful benefits for everyone.
For one, they are rather compact, which makes them practical on a daily basis. Not sure if there may be some sudden showers during the day? We can continue with our errands worry-free as folding umbrellas fit easily in handbags, backpacks, and office bags.
Better yet, these are rather convenient to have if we’re planning to spend some time outdoors. There’s no need to haul around a regular umbrella and have it in our way all day long. Now, no matter if we’re going on a shopping spree, for a park walk or to an open-air concert — we know no rain will get to us!
But here’s how you can benefit from this practical invention. By providing users with something as useful as a logo printed folding umbrella, you can tap into their emotions and make them associate your brand with something truly life-saving at times. The umbrellas you give them will be there in their hour of need (sudden showers!), after all. And that’s when they can draw maximum attention. When they use the umbrellas in public, the recipients become your brand ambassadors. They will display your logo to an unlimited number of people! Using folding umbrellas for promotion also allows you to:-
You can jazz up your folding umbrellas in a number of ways to ensure your target audience loves them. A good idea is to pick the most durable materials and colours that enhance your logo. We also suggest looking into different logo placements. Why have your logo on the canopy only when you can also place it on the umbrella sleeve and closing band to gain even more exposure?
The best news is that these branded umbrellas are suitable for both internal and external giveaways. Give them to your staff as gifts or hand them out at conferences, trade shows, exhibitions, or recruiting events.
No matter how you distribute them, your printed telescopic umbrellas will be seen as high-value freebies which bring convenience and ease to one’s life.
