Behind the Scenes with 2Brothers Brewery:

The Making of an Instant Shade Umbrella

Come with us behind the scenes to see what is involved with producing a branded commercial umbrella. Once the initial phone call is made, we work closely with our clients to ensure the design matches their brand or idea perfectly.

The design is sent to our manufacturers in China, who turn this into reality. The branded commercial umbrella is cut, printed, sown, tested and then packaged and air freighted to us.

The excitement starts to build, whilst the umbrella is on it’s way. Once it arrive we dress the umbrella and ensure it is perfect for our client.

The umbrella is then either personally delivered, or freighted around Australia to our many varied clients, ready to create a dramatic visual impact.

Clients choose to have branded commercial umbrella for a variety of reasons, though one thing is always a certainty – a branded commercial umbrella is a fabulous way to create brand awareness, makes a statement and compliments a business beautifully.

Branded Commercial umbrellas at 2 Brothers Brewery

Congratulations to 2Brothers Brewery

We love a local business success story – 2Brothers Brewery have taken out 3 golds and 2 trophies at the 2017 Australian International Beer Awards.

2Brothers is a hidden gem in Moorabbin. A Melbourne owned business, with all of their beer and cider made on site, they are also open to the public from Thurs – Sunday for meals and often have live music too.

With the need for a ‘beer garden’, they also needed somewhere to keep their patrons protected from the sun and the rain, for those brave enough to sit outdoors in Winter.

Instant Shade Umbrellas helped create Custom Printed umbrellas for their outdoor space, matching the business logo and colours to blend in beautifully.

Digital printing onto our umbrella fabric is a very easy process, where you are not limited by your design specifications.

The cafe series umbrellas are UV resistant and water repellent, and are a great easy option for breweries, cafes and restaurants.

Made with a lightweight anodized aluminium frame, the cafe series umbrellas won’t rust, flake or chip and are easy to open and close with a rope and pulley system.

Instant Shade Umbrellas cafe series range have moveable bases available if you need to store the umbrellas away, or they can be mounted into the ground.
