High-Def Umbrellas with Sublimation Printing

When it comes to the umbrella printing industry, there isn’t much that the average person can get excited about. But sublimation printing is definitely something to get excited about.

Imagination Becomes Reality With Sublimation

sublimation printing - imagination vs realityWhen you’re creating something, whether it’s a PowerPoint presentation, umbrellas, or website, you image it in vibrant detail. But we are often met with the reality of inadequate tools, and there is nothing more stifling than the limitation of your tools.

So when you want to create a beautifully detailed umbrella, you need right tool. Enter sublimation printing. This form of printing lets you print with increased detail compared to traditional printing methods, giving you the ability to add high-definition detail to your canopy. Sublimation printing is a dye-printing technique that allows for your ideas to be displayed at their max potential and is not to be confused with dye sublimation heat transfer imprinting.

Sublimation: Scientifically Speaking

science of sublimation - umbrella printingHere’s the science: It is the method of applying an image to specially coated ceramics, metals or fabrics, using three main ingredients: sublimation ink, heat and pressure. Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. This creates a crisper image with a less pixelated look. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time.

Quality Printing For Any Project

One such design was for the UK branch of Salvation Army for a recent fundraising event. They were looking for an umbrella that was colourful and memorable, yet still had vivid detail. The sublimated technique gave the graphics texture without that pixelated look. The umbrellas were a huge hit at the event with their eye-catching style.

Whether you are looking to create original umbrellas with vibrant colours or you’re wanting to add a detailed image to your canopy, sublimation printing gives you the quality that your project needs. Designing your umbrella with high-definition detail will make your promotional gift a memorable one. Don’t let your creativity be limited by lacklustre tools, choose the printer that will give you nearly limitless possibilities.

Umbrellas with Interior Printing – Functional Design

Many of our clients come to iBrolly because they want to give their customers useful promotional gifts that will be appreciated. A high quality, nicely designed custom umbrella is exactly that. However, we took the whole “useful promotional gift” thing to a whole new level with a few of our recent projects, where we used interior printing to make umbrellas even more practical than they already are.

Creative Printing for the Underside

Most recently, our iBrolly UK office worked with a London-based estate agency to create these gorgeous promotional umbrellas with full colour map of the west side of London printed on the inside. So, when you’re strolling through London from one apartment to the next looking for your next dream home – just look up at the map printed on the inside of your umbrella to find your way. We love it! Printing and manufacturing these particular custom umbrellas was something that could only be done in an umbrella factory, as each fabric umbrella panel had to be printed in colour before they were sewn together. After that, the umbrella canopy gets strung onto the frame.

Canopy Printing Done Right

We created another practical design in a similar theme for a Golf-Club Schloss Breitenburg’s line of custom golf umbrellas. In this case we used a large vented golf umbrella and printed a smaller map on one of the bottom panels. The exterior print on this umbrella was quite special as well, as we were able to print a full colour photographic image on it. And, by using a silver coating on the inside of the umbrella canopy, this promotional umbrella looks fantastic both inside and out.
