Marquee printing traps revealed
Danger - Danger- You are possibly Paying too much
Did you know that some Marquee/Gazebo/Pit Tent suppliers out there are selling marquee
printing of their roofs, and their customers are getting ripped big time. This is
because these suppliers are selling marquee's that have 30-50% less roof printing
space, and charging full price and not telling their customers about it. Look at the below picture to see
what we mean.
Figure 1 shows what we offer in the market with 1.0m roof peak rise. This roof gives your
brand significant exposure and a clear line of sight image visibility for adult height people.
We think of it as normal, but seemingly some suppliers are now offering marquees with
roofs such as Figure 2 in the market. Figure 2 is what many "cheapies" out there offer to
their customers. They offer you both roof and valance printing, which I suggest is not a
fair proposition. The roof peak is barely visible, so basically you should not print the
roof peak and save money. Also, Figure 2 has problems with water run-off, so they tend to pool water
if left outside for even a small downpour. This is why we don't do Figure 2 marquees.
Figure 3 below is the best solution for those who want MAXIMUM visibility and brand exposure
in a 3x3m package. Its called the Gable Marquee. Its a proven design, similar to our
Aussie Carports, now available in a pop-up marquee gazebo version from Mountain Shade
Thus in conclusion, if you want a fully printed roof, on all roof peak and valance panels,
select a supplier that gives your brand a chance to stand out. Don't be fooled by the
cheapies who have the low roofs, as they might seem cheap on paper, but in practice,
they will cost you more in lost opportunities for branding and logo placement at events.
And of course, for best results, select a supplier with a 12 month NOT TO FADE Printing Warranty.
Not all printing is the same, there is a reason why some cost more than others. We offer
a printing warranty in addition at no extra cost where we will re-print your roof if it fades
within the first 12 months. This is to show our customers we are supplying a quality
product, and we are willing to support what we sell. This should be what you should
look for when you buy marquee gazebo outdoor grade printing. Our frames strength support our quality
printing, thus we offer strong gazebo leg weights for your printed marquee.
