Custom Canopy Food products help big and small businesses build their brands, create awareness and stand out in the sea of Food Booth Products at events and street fairs.

Personalizing your Food Tent with images, logos, slogans or contact information can be accomplished by simple screen print or full color digital printing using UV Resistant inks. We are experts in both print methods and use only top rated commercial fabrics that meet all fire certifications and are also water resistant.

What is the difference between a screen print and digital print canopy?

Screen Print Process
A method in which ink is applied directly to the surface to be printed. The logo, text or image to be printed is photographically transferred to a very fine fabric (the screen) such that the non-printed areas are blocked off and the fabric serves as a stencil. The ink is wiped across the screen to pass through the unblocked pores and reach the substrate. For each color to be printed a separate screen is prepared and the process is repeated.

Screen Print – The Upside
Less Is Sometimes More…
When a project calls for basic imaging – one or two color logos on solid color background fabrics like red, black, blue, green, etc. -- screen-print is often the smarter, more cost-effective choice. This allows clients to get into customization for relatively low cost and still look professional.

And More Is Sometimes Less
The major expense in screen printing is the up-front cost of producing the screen themselves. Each additional unit after the first one lowers the per/unit price. Economies of scale with screen print are far more dramatic than with digital. For clients working with tight budgets, we’ll offer advice on how to be as efficient as possible: reducing colors, for example, or cross-purposing screens for different canopy elements.

Screen Print – The Downside
Screen-print severely limits the complexity of the printed image. You are also limited to specific areas to which ink can be applied. Generally speaking, designs cannot flow from one surface to another.

Digital Print Process - Dye Sublimation
Utilizing large format digital printers, graphics are printed to a "transfer paper" using special inks. Through a heat process, the imaging on the transfer paper is impregnated into the pores of the polyester fabric used for canopy tops, sidewalls, table cover and related. This process produces clean, crisp, full color graphics of virtually any size direct from digital files without the need for complex and costly color separations. It also ensures the ink won't crack, peal or run-off the fabric.

Digital Print – The Upside
Maximum Imaging Capacity
Digital print allows us to handle complex designs, gradients, logos, photography and line illustrations. For all practical purposes, there are no imaging restrictions. You pay the same for one color as you do for a million colors. Since we start with white fabric and print over the entire surface, the base color of the printed goods can match corporate Pantone colors. When it comes to canopies, digital print dye sublimation allows for designs to flow from one canopy peak to the other, or from the peak to the canopy valance.

Digital Print – The Downside
Digital is usually more expensive than screen-print, and economies of scale for larger orders are minimal. You get more, but you also pay more, for digital print.

Which is Best?
Neither. They’re both great. Depends upon the situation.
Look toward screen print for basic logo identity and for orders of five units or more. In most cases, for complex art and clients with ambitious branding needs, digital print is the way to go. In some instances we can use a combination of both process to control pricing and give you "the look" you desire.

Not all printing processes are the same! Please understand what you are buying before comparing canopy company quotes.

If digitally printed, is the ink printed on the surface of the fabric only or impregnated into the pores of fabric?
What is the Ultra Violet resistance? Surface ink Cracks and Flakes.
Does the fabric used meet all of the required fire ratings?
Is your fabric water resistant?
Will the ink “bleed” in the rain?
Is your fabric polyester of heavy plastic vinyl? Polyester is the fabric of choice for all commercial grade canopy products.
