But how do you order customized products from us? What files do you need to provide? What are the steps involved in the process? In this blog post, we will answer these questions and give you some tips on how to get the best results from our service.

Step 1: Choose Your Product & We Create Mockup

The first step is to choose the product and size that you want from our website. We have a variety of products to suit different needs and occasions. You can browse our product categories and see the details and prices of each item.

Our bestseller is our canopy tents.

Once you have decided on the product and size that you want, you can either place an order online or contact us for a quote. If you place an order online, we will contact you for the printing details. If you contact us for a quote, we will send you an invoice with the payment details.

However, we do our mockups for free so we can do it as soon as you send us the logo/artwork even though there are no orders placed yet.

Step 2: Finalizing the Mockup Design

The next step is to design your product or use our templates. You have two options for this step:

  • Option A: Design your product yourself using our AI files. You can download our AI files from our resource center, where you will find all the product files listed. You will need Adobe Illustrator or a similar software to edit these files. You can add your own logo, text, images, colors, and shapes to create your custom design. Please make sure that your artwork files are vector artwork and supplied as PDF, EPS or AI format.
  • Option B: We will create the mockup for you! You will need to provide us with your logo, text, images, colors, and any other information that you want us to include in your design.

Step 3: Approve Your Mockup and Send Us Your Files

The final step is to approve your mockup and send us your files. Once you receive your mockup from us, you will need to check it carefully and make sure that everything is correct. You will need to pay attention to the following aspects:

  • Resolution: The minimum image resolution requirement is 300dpi at 25% scale or 100dpi at 100% scale to produce satisfactory results. If your image resolution is too low, it may appear blurry or pixelated when printed. If this is the case, we will ask you to send us a higher resolution image or logo.
  • Color: All printing is done using CMYK on a large format printer. Pantone Colors / PMS can be supplied but they will be converted to a CMYK breakdown for digital printing. Please state to our Graphics Coordinator if you require color matching to either a PMS color or a physical sample. While we make every effort to match PMS colors, slight variation in color may occur.
  • Size: The size of your product should match the size of the file that you send us. If there is any discrepancy between the two, we will adjust it accordingly. However, this may affect the quality or appearance of your product. Therefore, we recommend that you use our AI files or templates as a guide when designing your product.

If you are happy with your mockup and everything is correct, you can approve it and send us your files via email or Drive. We will then proceed with the printing process and ship your order as soon as possible.

The Benefits of Choosing the Right Canopy Material

Planning out the layout of a company’s booth for the next community event can be a hassle at times. If you’re navigating this task, you’re likely already aware of all the choices involved. One of the most important choices is what kind of cover to use for your booth.

Whether the event is inside or completely outdoors, you’ll need a canopy that’s right for the job. Importantly, you’ll need to decide which canopy material provides the benefits you’re looking for. Read on to explore the best canopy materials for various goals.

Best Appearance

Let’s start with the benefit that’s the most subjective. Everyone wants something different regarding a canopy’s look, but if you want something more traditional, consider a canvas top. While not as popular today, a canvas canopy might be the perfect fit for your brand. However, we will point out that this fabric is bulky and doesn’t hold out water, meaning this classic style is better in indoor settings.

Best Rain Resistance

What if your booth location is outdoors? You’ll want to buy a canopy top that’s resistant to rain. Nylon tents are the perfect option for this. Its fibers don’t absorb any water whatsoever. That means your tent won’t become heavier or shrink as the rain pours.

One downside to keep in mind is that nylon isn’t nearly as strong against the sun. It will certainly protect those underneath the tent, but over time, the UV rays will eventually eat through the material, rendering it useless. If you live in an area that gets a lot of rain and little sunshine, a nylon canopy would be perfect for you.

Best Sun Resistance

However, if sun resistance is way more vital where you live, you should opt for a canopy made out of 100 percent PU. This material is perfect for long term UV-exposure. Plus, it is quite durable, so you won’t have to worry about accidentally ripping it when setting it up or taking it down. Both attributes will lead to a long lifespan for your canopy.

Best All-Around

In the end, if you want to reap all the benefits of choosing the right canopy material, you would benefit from choosing a blended option. Ideally, seek out a tent covering made from PU-coated polyester. This gives you the sun-resistant benefits of PU while remaining on the lighter side and providing rain resistance. Additionally, it’s one of the most affordable canopies on the market.

Even though PU-coated polyester is often the best choice, you shouldn’t count out any of the options mentioned here. Regardless of which material you pick, you’ll want to clearly print your company’s logo across it to ensure that potential customers can spot you from a distance. If you’re looking for a unique canopy for your business, be sure to check out our custom tent printing services. We’ll make sure that your name and logo come out perfectly, allowing your business to stand out at any event.
