How Your Printed Umbrellas Are Printed & Made

Umbrella printing takes place at the Contrado studio in London. Every order is handmade by expert artisans. The large canopy has 8 printable panels, each of which can be individually designed, making your custom umbrella one of a kind. Your designs are printed onto Linden waterproof fabric, which is renowned for its superior print quality and its water resilient nature. Lightweight yet tough, it makes the perfect canopy fabric for printed umbrellas. The metal frame of your umbrella has been made with supreme skill, and the sleek opening and collapse mechanisms are strong and sturdy, making them ideal for wet and windy weather. Each panel is individually printed using our specialist digital process before it is hand cut and stitched together. We finish the spokes of the frame with metal tips. These not only add a classy finishing touch, but they also protect from the sharp edges.

Care Instructions

To clean your umbrella, simply brush off hardened dirt, or shake it off when wet. As the canopy is made from water-repellent fabric, it is self-cleaning. The non-aluminium sections of the umbrella are non-corrosive, so you don't have to worry about them rusting over time.

  • Wipe Down
  • No Soak

Design Tips

You can have a lot of fun with umbrella printing. Our design interface gives you 8 individual panels to print on, allowing you to create a continuous pattern all the way around the umbrella, or a different design per panel. The City Auto umbrella has an automatic opening and a crook handle in your choice of black or natural. We think this works beautifully if your design is more traditional, or if you want to evoke an aesthetic from a bygone era.

Reviews for Custom Umbrella

Rated 5/5 based on 4 customer reviews

  • Custom umbrella It would be great to have an official template to download for custom umbrella designs, but I figured one out and am super happy with the result - a nice quality umbrella frame and the print is very accurate in colour and vibrant. If you could do a carrier for it too... ;-) Thank you!

  • Great! Very very happy with the umbrellas - they look exactly as expected. V fast delivery.

  • Fab custom designed brollys Purchased two city brollys. Easy to design template, delivery came on time and well packaged. Colours vibrant and brolly looks fab when opened. Material robust, and looks very well made. Very pleased indeed.

  • Umbrellas Fast delivery and very good quality. I will order again from Contrado.

How does this product enhance my...

  • Home

    Keep yourself free from drizzle with your own bespoke umbrella. Flimsy, pocket sized umbrellas might be suitable for a light shower, but when the rain pours down, you want the protection of a large canopy and a sturdy structure. Design your own custom umbrella and create something that will show off your personal style, even in the darkness of a thunderstorm. Opt for original artwork, typography or unusual patterns to make yours stand out.

  • Business

    If you run a luxury hotel or B&B, then you will know that it is all about those little special added extras. Small details can make all the difference to your customers, and can be a sure fire way to entice them to stay with you again. Why not design your own umbrellas with your hotel name or logo included in the design? Leave an umbrella in each bedroom, and some in the lobby, so guests can enjoy a walk in the grounds, whatever the weather.

  • Design Brand

    Expand your product catalogue by creating a range of custom umbrellas with your original artwork. Our luxurious, handmade umbrellas make the perfect accessory for any collection. A universally useful product, made all the better with our expert craftsmanship and your designs. They make a unique supplementary product to include alongside coats, jackets and any other outerwear - even bags. Your customers can enjoy matching their accessories with their fashion.

Frequently asked questions:

Why is the City Auto called Auto?

The City Auto style has two crook handle options, in black and natural, and it has an automatic opening with a top lock. It is super convenient for when you're stuck in a downpour and don't have both hands free to open your umbrella.

Is the umbrella waterproof?

Your new custom umbrella is completely water repellent. Made from our touch and durable Linden waterproof fabric, your umbrella is resistant to water, so raindrops simply rolls off of the material. Our expert stitching ensures no drops will work their way through the seams of the fabric.

How many areas can I customise?

Your new umbrella is unlike anything you have seen before. Taking customisation to a new level, our unique design interface allows you to print on all 8 of the umbrella's panels. This means your designs or artwork will cover the whole of the umbrella, creating a completely bespoke piece.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    What's the best resolution to print in?

    We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)


    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are the bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
