Custom Printed Tents
At BuyShade.com, we don’t just sell tents and flags, we help our customers create exciting and effective events. With more than a decade of outstanding service, our customers and their events range from car dealerships and national retailers to school fairs and athletic events.
Our broad experience enables us to make recommendations specific to your needs. By addressing every angle from logo branding to tent safety and storage, we ensure your custom printed tent serves as a sound investment, as well as a business tool. Take the first step towards successful events with these tips and suggested solutions from our experts.
Printing with Personality: Amazing first impressions.
Performers, interactive booths, and other special attractions work well for creating a buzz of interest at public events. Be sure to allow adequate funds for logo printing and custom branding so you can convert all that publicity into new business.
Whether you are catering a wedding or sponsoring a tech convention, a custom printed tent raises the visibility of your company to attract customers, investors, and social media interaction. With large, striking logos prominently positioned over the heads of the milling event-goers, you will be sure to stand out and be noticed even in the most crowded venue.
How should you earmark for printing? Custom printing is all about personalized custom solutions, so there isn’t one simple answer. Printing fees for a custom printed tent can range from a few hundred dollars to two or three times the cost of the tent itself—it depends on your event size, your brand styling, and the amount of printing you want.
Whatever your budget, score high on "bang for your buck" by finding the best quality printing. The crispest, most vivid, truest color custom printed tents are produced by traditional silk screening (for 1- or 2-color logos) and dye sublimation (for multi-color logos and edge-to-edge designs).
For expertly printed event tents that will absolutely knock your socks off, BuyShade.com employs only the best high-end technologies and instruments. To secure the same impressive results for your project, investigate your options before making a commitment. When you request a quote, look for details on the size and type of printing and ask for a printing sample.
Many customers come to us after disappointing purchases from other distributors. Save yourself this agony—give yourself time to receive samples and thoroughly understand the product before you buy. And whether you choose BuyShade.com or a different printer, make sure your custom tent includes a graphics warranty—just in case.

Custom Canopy Basics: Coverage you need.
Unless you are planning a one-day, one-time only event, give special consideration to your tent’s fabric. For starters, choose a shelter with an SPF-rated top to keep your event staff and guests cool and safe. All BuyShade custom printed tents provide protection from ultraviolet rays (up to 99%!) with either a reflective lining or topcoat treatment.
Material matters, too. Many tent manufacturers use vinyl for their custom printed tents, but that’s a huge mistake. Each time you fold up a vinyl tent, you add more and more unsightly wrinkles—wrinkles that will muddy your expensive and essential graphics. Instead of vinyl, ask for heavy-weight polyester event tents; the polyester fabric will be resistant to wrinkles and will still repel water.
For the best all-weather protection, BuyShade recommends premium event tents. Unlike E-Z Up instant tents, these event tents require some assembly. However, their pole frames provide an incredibly strong and sturdy base to support their tensioned canopies.
Ideal for wet and rainy conditions, our event tents shed water where other tents may soak up water and eventually puddle, leak, or collapse. The canopy fabric itself is a multi-layer material specially made for outdoor tents. The finished top—which has no seams—secures to the tent with ratcheted tie-downs that pull the top as tight as a drum. Thanks to the resilient fabric, taut tension, and tall sloping peak of our event tents, your space stays dry and your event can continue without worries in any weather.
Fabulous on a Budget: Dollar-stretching solutions.
Both our customers and our designers love full coverage designs and complete booth setups, but not everyone needs that much equipment or printing. Fortunately, BuyShade has options for big events and for smaller events. And we will always provide smart and honest ideas that put your needs first. For example, if you are trying to save money or make a tight budget work, consider this question:
Which is more important for your project,
A) Longevity for many events, or
B) Making a big splash at a couple events?
If you answered A, opt for smaller, less expensive logos in order to allocate more of your budget to a heavy duty frame. This savvy investment will increase the longevity of your tent to five years, seven years, or even 10 years.
If you answered B, go bold with one large, flashy logo that faces oncoming traffic and pack your booth below with signs or other promo gear you already have. Definitely DON’T spend big on a custom printed tent with a cheap, flimsy frame because you could be left with a pretty but useless canopy should one strut break.

Planning the perfect custom printed tent may require months of regular interaction with your tent vendor. You and your rep will be regularly chatting back and forth to refine your all the details of your project, so find a rep you like collaborating with.
