Setting up a custom canopy tent, rather than just a desk in open air, is an excellent way to promote your business at fairs, expositions or races – these events are great for networking, for building brand awareness and for attracting customers, so the one-time investment made into a high-quality, attractive tent that displays your logo and grabs attention with other décor elements is surely worthwhile. Custom canopy tents can cost anything from a few hundred dollars to a couple of thousand – here are the factors that influence the costs.
The smallest standard canopy size is 10 x 10 feet, but the range goes up to 20 x 20 or even larger. The size will obviously influence the price not only because of the quantity of material used for making the canopy top, but also because the larger the tent, the more supporting poles are needed and the frame also needs to be larger. To figure out the right size, think not only about how much space you will have at your disposal at the upcoming event, but about how much space is generally available at the events that you want to participate in the future. Assess the tent size that you need based on the furnishing items or other objects that you want to place under the canopy as well.
The Material of the Frame and of the Poles
Frames and poles vary in terms of price depending on the material they are made from. Aluminum, steel and stainless steel are the most common materials used for making support structures, but other, more innovative – and more expensive – solutions are also available.
The amount of printing that you will need with your custom canopy will also influence the price of your custom canopy. Ideally, you should use the best quality print available to you, so before you order your printed canopy top, find out everything about the printing technologies and the quality levels available from your provider.
You can also choose to have the frame and the poles painted in a color that matches the design and the colors used on the canopy top. Most companies that offer customized tents have poles and frames in several, standard colors – if you need your support elements to be painted to a color that is not offered in the range, you will probably have to pay extra.
For a little more money, you can choose to enhance the sturdiness of your tent with sidewalls that you can freely add or leave at home, depending on the weather during the event you are participating at. They can also be customized with your logo or company information. You will also need suitable bags for storing and transporting your canopy tent, its support elements and its accessories safely and that will add some to the overall costs of your custom canopy. Think about those bags as an important one-time investment, too, so try to buy the best quality that you can afford.
