Our Concept


The Umbrella Concept

Umbrella was conceived to protect and expand local bay area artists and their brands. Initially, we specialized in custom silk screening, specifically transferring Graffiti art to garments.
It was a very tricky business. Years of running our custom silk screening business, as well as developing our own clothing brand – Famous Four Colors, have taught us several important theories and techniques when it comes to garment decoration.
Among them all, one theory stands-out as having the most influential impact on your clients and constituents i.e., concept, graphic and product all must align.
Millions of dollars are spent each year in an industry populated by quick merchandising solutions:

A great concept does not mean your finished product will work.
A great graphic means nothing without the right blank product.

Without proper alignment of all three, the emotional lasting impact you seek is uncertain. As simple as an umbrella is, the protection one provides cannot be understated.

Today, Umbrella Shirts provides our clients with full merchandising opportunities. We dedicate our time to evaluating market trends as well as decorating techniques. We pursue these techniques so that your concept, graphic, and final product do align, so that your brand is expressed in the most influential and effective way.

    Great Place To Work

    Working with Taylor at Umbrella Shirts has been such a pleasure! We had a bulk order of backpacks we needed to get embroidered for our company retreat gift and they did an excellent job at explaining pricing, coming up with an accurate proof and delivering right when we needed the completed bags.
    We will definitely be using Umbrella Shirts for our future branding needs!

    Oakland Ballet Company

    Umbrella Shirts has created 2 designs for Oakland Ballet Company over the past 2 years and both have arrived quickly and looked great! I asked them for several different quotes before settling on a design and order and they handled all quickly, professionally and with great customer service. They were also very helpful in working within our budget while still providing a quality product.
    I enjoy working with them and Oakland Ballet Company will definitely be using Umbrella Shirts again!

    They have great customer service. They print out orders quickly and flawlessly. My first time working with them I had a rush order to complete in one week and they made it happen. The inks that they use are of high quality and won’t fade when you wash. Thanks Umbrella Shirts you rock!!!!!

    Grand Lake Montessori

    The shirts they did for me for the Grand Lake Montessori children’s opera, Harlequin, are terrific! They’re exactly as I’d imagined them and everyone is thrilled. I’ll be back again next time we need more shirts and will recommend them to my friends. They were easy to work with, true to their word about costs and the work is flawless!
