How can I place an order?

Ordering with us is very simple. You can place an order directly online through our transactional website. You can select the model, colour and quantities you need, as well as the print details. You can define the number of panels you would like the logo to be printed on and how many colours your logo requires. Once you are happy with your selection you can proceed to the check out. You can pay securely online, and once the order is completed, the order confirmation will be emailed to you. 

However, if online is not your thing, we are happy to take your order over the phone or via email.  Call us on 01784 225902 or email our sales team on sales@expressumbrellas.co.uk and we will send a quotation followed by an order confirmation once you have decided on the order details.

Do your prices include print?

Yes, the prices quoted include a 1 colour print on 1 panel. We can advise you of the additional costs If you would like your logo on more than one panel or your logo contains more than one colour. Due to the nature of the printing process, print prices drop significantly for larger quantities so the more you order, the better the price we can offer!

Is carriage free?

Yes! We will ship all orders free of charge to one destination in the UK. We have excellent carriage rates with our shipping company and we pass these benefits on to our customers.

What are screen charges?

We use screen printing to reproduce your logo on umbrellas. Screens are tools that are required in the process and they are made specifically for your artwork. We require as many screens as many colours there are in your logo. They are additional costs that are not included in the price. Should you decide to change the print colour, no extra cost will be incurred, however if you decide to change the size of your logo once the screens are made, additional cost will be incurred.

How many colours can you print on umbrellas?

We can print up to 4 spot colours on umbrellas.

I don’t know how many colours there are in my logo?

Some designs are more complex than the others. It is not always easy to tell at first glance how many colours there are in your logo. If you are not sure please send your artwork to: sales@expressumbrellas.co.uk and we will be happy to help.

My design is more like a picture. Can you print it? 

Yes, we can. Just send your artwork to:  sales@expressumbrellas.co.uk and we will advise on the best branding technique and then quote.

How do I send my logo?

You can upload the artwork at checkout if you prefer to place an order online. At this stage you can also add any relevant information such as colour/size/location of your logo. Your artwork can also be sent to sales@expressumbrellas.co.uk

What format do you accept for print?

Generally, we request the logo to be in Adobe Illustrator - EPS, AI or PDF or Adobe InDesign – Indd. We request the artwork to be sent in vector format, as it is the best format to ensure the required fonts and layout of your logo. For photographic, picture-like designs, we require Adobe Photoshop - 300dpi or above JPG or Tiff .

 Artwork that cannot be supplied in any of the above formats could be sent to us in the form of a letterhead, complement slip, scanned image or visual guide and will have to be assessed and extra time priced into the job if redrawing is required.

I want to be sure my logo is printed correctly. 

We understand that and we are offering a 2 stage verification process. Stage 1 – once we have received your order and artwork we then email you a visual. This is to ensure the logo position, size and colour are in line with your requirements. Most customers are happy to proceed with production at this stage. Should you need to make any changes we will update your requirements and send the final visual for your approval. Some customers prefer to use the second stage of the verification process and request a pre-production sample.
