How to choose the best custom canopy or pop-up tent for your events

With so many choices of pop-up tents out there, how do you choose the right one? For some folks, the process can be bit overwhelming. Here are some questions you should ask yourself prior to going out and spending your hard earned money on such a canopy.

Recreational or Business use?

This is an initial question which may help determine what grade and price range you should shop for a custom canopy. If you won’t be using the tent too often, yet still want a quality frame, take a look at our Mega series of light duty tents. These are typically lighter and less expensive, yet still provide a sturdy frame. However, if you see yourself using your pop-up tent weekly or several times per month, take a look at our Mega-X or Colossus series. Both of these models are made from high-grade, thick gauge aluminum and will stand up to heavier use and stronger winds. You can also choose from five different color canvas tops. Each tent is CPAI-84 fire-certified and water resistant. They also feature a coating that blocks out 99% of harmful UV rays.

How often will you use it?

This question may also determine how much you should spend, as well as what to look for in your potential custom canopy and pop-up tents. For lighter usage, such as camping or barbecuing, we recommend a lighter grade frame with a solid color top, such as our Mega series pop-up tent. This model is economical and ideal for lighter duty purposes. If you’re planning on starting a business or becoming a vendor at a farmers market, you’re most likely looking for a canopy designed for average to heavy usage. A better choice would be a mid-grade commercial pop-up tent such as our Mega-X or Colossus series. These models have thicker and sturdier legs, and provide more rigidity to the frame structure. Also, depending on your budget, custom branding your pop-up tent is highly recommended. This is the most cost effective way to stand out from the competition. Custom printing will get you noticed at any outdoor or indoor event. Typically, custom printed canopies are no more than a few hundred dollars, and the potential return on investment is well worth it!
