Rain is a common occurrence in the United Kingdom, with some areas receiving up to 20 inches of precipitation per year - that's a lot of rain! With the unpredictable weather, it's essential to have an umbrella on hand, especially if you're running between meetings or playing golf.
Most people in the UK own an umbrella, typically a golf umbrella that they keep in their car. The best umbrellas are made from fiberglass, which is strong and durable, and they have a vented canopy to allow air to escape, reducing the risk of it flipping inside out. While some golf umbrellas have an automatic opening function, a manual umbrella is usually slightly lighter .
Contrary to popular belief, heavy doesn't always mean better quality, and promotional umbrellas are an excellent example of this. A heavy umbrella is cumbersome and impractical, especially if you're carrying a business bag. Fiberglass is an excellent material for an umbrella because it's lightweight and flexible. The better the quality, the lighter the umbrella, making it easier to carry.
Promotional golf umbrellas are a fantastic marketing opportunity because they have a large A4 print area available on eight panels, allowing for maximum exposure of your company logo. Promotional umbrellas are also just above eye level, making them highly visible, like a walking billboard. It's no wonder that promotional umbrellas are often used as corporate gifts to provide valuable advertising exposure.
Golf umbrellas come in a wide range of panel colors, with over 30 options available for some models. There are also various umbrella styles to choose from, including telescopic umbrellas, gents and ladies' umbrellas, children's umbrellas, and parasols. Recycled umbrellas are also available in different sizes.
In conclusion, investing in promotional umbrellas is a cost-effective way to advertise your business. Compared to traditional advertising channels like billboards, bus stops, or train ads, promotional umbrellas offer a greater return on investment. So, the next time you're caught in the rain, reach for your trusty umbrella and consider the marketing potential of this essential accessory.
