Default Custom Tent/Canopy Cost?

Has anyone had a custom tent/canopy made? I am thinking about having my logo and brand name printed on a tent and wanted to get an idea of what the cost may be. Does anyone know what a custom tent usually runs??

Thanks

I've seen that, but I'll have to look for it. One vendor I saw had banners made the length of his tent and the banners had a loop on each end and he would use tubing attached to the legs of the canopy and the banner would slide into the tubing creating a sing above the tent. I don;t know if this would work for you.

Wink Re: Custom Tent/Canopy Cost?

I looked into it NOT WORTH IT
I don't remember the exact amount but all i know is that Sams Club had E-Z up tents although not as sweet as having one with your brand/logo you can easy hire someone or spray yourself your brand or what not or what a lot of people do is get a banner and hang it on the top of the tent

I just checked and sams still does have the E-Z up tents which in my experience is the best brand because it actually is really easy..

When i was at warped tour i had my tent set up within literally 3 minutes while a few of the people around me had some trouble..

Sam's Club - E-Z Up Instant Shelter Canopy - 10' x 10'

Also if you dont want to spray paint it or do a banner I'm guessing you could so some sort of vinyal sticker?

Thank you, I checked out the Sams site you put out and that might be better to go with....cheaper too. I thought about the spray painting before the custom work but don't know where to go to have that done. I think the spray paint would look so much more bad @**. I still have some time before i need the tent so I'll look around as to who can spray paint my logo. Thanks again.

Look up a company named North Star, $2500 thats for custom printed cover on top and all 4 sides, the frame, and costume sides bars, we use the ones that mount about 3 feet off the ground and they hang to the ground to in close our space, those are custom printed as well. all for about 2500 bucks.

The majority of the tents you can embellish with psa vinyl, or paint. Any decent sign guy should be able to help you out, we are going to create a couple of our own for promotions this summer.

I just got a 10x10 ez up from craigs list. $50! Its great, I am going to do the method mentioned above for the signage. I just need to find some kind of mount for the poles to attach to. I figure I can make them or somebody might make brackets that attach to the tent legs that would hold the signage.

If you attaching banners make sure it is staked down well or your tent becomes a huge kite.

Default Re: Custom Tent/Canopy Cost?

After thinking it over and reading everyone's helpful responses, I think I'm going to spray paint my canopy. I have a plotter and tons of vinyl. I'm pretty nervous about it but the price they quoted me is way more than I would like to spend especially since I'm doing a huge festival and the more funds I save the more products I can prepare for the festival.

I'm a little nervous about it...if I mess it up I'm going to have one hideous tent...lol. Can anyone tell me if there is a special spray paint I need to use on the canopy material? Or is regular spray paint ok to use. It would not be cool if it rained on my canopy and my paint slides off....lol...or when I go to set it up the canopy has stuck together because of the paint. Not sure if that's possible but asking just in case 'cause that would be embarrasing to open the canopy and little bald patches everywhere..lol. Just things I'm thinking about and want to know before I go all graffiti on my canopy. Also, can spray paint be used for banner material??? Thanks guys for any help you can throw my way!

depending on the material of the canopy, just use psa vinyl and make it easier on yourself.

Hey Sandy you thought about getting it airbrushed?
What show are you doing, is it in the Houston area? I'm from the Houston area myself.
