About Us

OUR COMPANY

At Cheeky Umbrella, we are America's source for quality custom umbrellas and commercial patio umbrellas.  We create our custom umbrellas by adding your company's logo to in-stock products, or we help you create a more fully customized design at our overseas factory.  We manufacture our own unique products so we can control the quality, and sell them direct to you, eliminating the middleman and enabling us to pass on savings of up to 50%.  We serve cities across the USA, including Seattle, Portland and New York.

OUR STORY

When Cheeky Umbrella's founder Jen moved to notoriously rainy Vancouver after University, she was commuting downtown to work on public transit, and owning an umbrella was a necessity.  At first, she bought the standard drugstore umbrellas, and found herself frustrated with broken umbrella after broken umbrella. So next, she turned to some higher quality umbrellas, but they had a hefty pricetag. She bit the bullet and paid the high price, but the first one she left on a bus, the second was stolen at a restaurant, and the third didn't last much longer than the drugstore umbrella before it broke.  She wondered, "How could a rainy city like Vancouver not have any quality umbrellas at prices that wouldn’t make you cry if you left it on a bus?"  And there the idea for Cheeky Umbrella was born. The business has evolved and changed over the years, but the idea behind it has stayed the same - creating high quality umbrellas at affordable prices.  Today we sell both rain umbrellas and patio umbrellas and continue to impress our customers with high-end custom promotional umbrellas at prices 30-50% less than traditional promotional products distributors. From our Vancouver head office and USA Pacific Northwest Distribution Center, we serve cities across Canada and the USA.

WHERE DOES THE NAME "CHEEKY" COME FROM?

The way we do business at Cheeky Umbrella is with a rebellious or “cheeky” spirit that challenges the status quo in our industry.   Here's how we're different: 

  • We created a small collection of products curated by an umbrella expert, our founder who has been in the umbrella business over ten years.
  • Our collection is focused on quality. We manufacture our own umbrellas to ensure we have complete control of the materials and workmanship.
  • We sell our products direct to you (no middleman/distributor) so we can offer affordable prices without sacrificing quality.
  • Our team provides advice and knowledge to ensure you get a final product that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

By doing things a bit different than the norm, we are able to offer better quality and service for an affordable price.
