If you are wondering where to start when designing a custom umbrella, we always suggest looking through  options on our custom umbrellas page to get started.

If you design an umbrella like the one pictured above with a print all over the umbrella, we will have to custom manufacture your umbrellas because we print the fabric before we make up the umbrellas so that we can get this type of all over coverage.

In this case, we printed the same image of the Eiffel Tower on all panels with our photographic printing technique. Our photo printing is the best way to go when printing a photograph or a complex design with many colors and tones.

If you have a simpler design, we might recommend printing with silkscreen printing. So, all depends on your design idea.

We also print on our color fabrics with silkscreen printing and that might be the best way to get your design onto an umbrella.

Even if you are an experienced designer, there are subtle nuances to designing an umbrella, so feel free to reach out to discuss your project for templates, color options and any other questions you might have.

At Gouda, we have spent over twenty years perfecting our process and print techniques, so you have come to the right place to get great print results and service.

We provide virtual umbrella proofs to see how your umbrella creation will look when complete.

Our famous virtual umbrella proofs give you a 360 degree view of your design before we start the process.

To finalize the costing of your umbrellas, we choose the frame style based on your unique project. Since all of our frames are custom made, we can even create custom color frames or handles for your umbrellas. So, when it comes to designing a custom umbrella, we can help you at every step of the process. When we say concept to delivery, we mean it.
