How can a custom canopy save me money on advertising? This is a sad but good example. April 15, 2011 the Today Show ran a spot on a missing child in Parsons, TN. In the background was a custom canopy. This canopy was seen by over 50 million people and the cost of the tent was only $800. That equals .000016 cents a person that saw this custom canopy on TV. That is powerful advertising to the extreme.
There are many ways that custom tents can be printed. The most common is screen printing tents. A tent is screen printed the same way t-shirts are printed except in a much larger scale. The desired graphic is seperated by each color. A large format screen image is made of that graphic color and of the other colors. The screen is put on top of the canopy valance or peak and a craftsman slides a thin layer of ink over the desired location. This is done for each color until you have a full color logo.

Why would anyone want a canopy with graphics? The simple facts is that a custom tent can help sell your product. This day and age requires special types of advertising to get noticed. Companies spend thousands of dollars a day to advertise on TV and radio and many times they go unnoticed. Custom tents get peoples attention for a minimal advertising budget. Here is an example of dye-sublimation canopy graphics. Notice how the top of the tent is completely printed. This tent cost $1300. It can be used everyday for 2 years and the return on investment is huge! This is an example of canopy graphics that don’t cost but generate revenue.
