An Unbelievably Great Umbrella
When it comes to umbrellas, nobody has you covered like ShedRain. Founded 75 years ago in Portland, Oregon, where rain experts reside, this third-generation family-owned business is the only umbrella company that operates a manufacturing facility in the United States.
ShedRain adheres to the highest quality standards in making its umbrellas, including expert craftsmanship, outstanding materials, and an environmentally friendly production process. Every feature is designed to ensure their umbrellas stand up against adverse weather conditions and the rigors of everyday use. They are so sure of the quality of their umbrellas that they offer a Lifetime Warranty on their entire lineup.
With a heritage like that, leave it to ShedRain to come up with the innovative UnbelievaBrella. The name isn’t the only thing that’s hip about these nifty defenders. Utilizing a unique reverse open-and-close system, the UnbelievaBrella keeps water away from you by creating a funnel when closed. This is especially handy when getting in and out of a vehicle or entering or leaving a doorway. It also means no dripping umbrella leaving puddles behind on the floor. Available in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors, it’s easy to find one to suit any need and style.
But don’t just take our word for it. Check out these case studies that show exactly how unbelievably great these umbrellas can be!
A Hole in One
To increase membership, a country club decided to hold a month-long promotion in which they gave away an item to anyone who joined. They selected the ShedRain® UnbelievaBrella™ Golf Umbrella Item 3868 so that new members could stay protected from the elements while enjoying a round of golf. Membership at the club increased by 15% that month, with many new members admitting the giveaway was a factor in their decision to join. After trying the item out on several occasions, these golf enthusiasts noted how they loved the durability of the umbrella, as well as how it easily protected them from the rain while getting in and out of their golf carts.
Hitting the Trails
An outdoor adventure club wanted to make sure their members were well prepared for the elements during the many exciting excursions they had planned for the year. During orientation, they provided each adventurer with a ShedRain® UnbelievaBrella™ Jumbo Compact Auto Open Close Item 2427. No matter if the sun was beating down or the rain was trying to dampen their spirits, members were able to press on and have a terrific time in the Great Outdoors with this handy companion. They appreciated the generous 54” arc and durable construction of the umbrella. They particularly loved the compact size, which made it easy to toss in their backpack.
Banking on New Accounts
During the spring when rain showers are most prevalent, a bank launched a Saving for a Rainy Day campaign. Each person who opened a new savings account received the ShedRain® UnbelievaBrella™ Crook Handle Auto Open Fashion Print Umbrella Item 4520. Upon entering the bank’s lobby, potential customers were able to check out the umbrella for themselves. They really liked both the practical features of the gift as well as its fun aesthetic components such as the curved wood handle and fashionable print under the canopy. Impressed and eager to protect their money (as well as themselves from the springtime rain), dozens of new customers opened accounts within just a few weeks.
Recognizing that people were anxious to start going places again, a travel agency offered the ShedRain® UnbelievaBrella™ Crook Handle Auto Open Umbrella Item 4519 to anyone who booked a trip through them during a specified period of time. Travelers were excited to know they were getting not only expert advice on their upcoming trip but also a high-quality umbrella that would allow them to make memories no matter what Mother Nature threw their way. The umbrellas were a big hit, and the travel agency experienced a 25% increase in trips booked compared with the previous quarter.
An Über-cool Welcome Gift
A rideshare company decided to give away a ShedRain® UnbelievaBrella™ (Solids) Item 3201 to its new employees as part of their welcome package. Drivers were thrilled with the umbrella, particularly its rubber-coated C-shaped handle. This unique feature allowed them to keep their hands free and stay dry on rainy days when helping customers in and out of the vehicle or loading/unloading their luggage. Customers were grateful that the driver was able to keep them and their belongings dry, and they expressed their gratitude through very generous tips.
Keeping the Rays at Bay
With summertime fast approaching, a local healthcare organization set up an informational booth during youth baseball, soccer, and softball tournaments. People visiting the table could pick up flyers with summertime safety tips and spin a prize wheel, which featured several fun and relevant items, including the ShedRain® UnbelievaBrella™ Auto Open & Close Reverse Compact Item 2299. Those lucky enough to win an umbrella were thrilled about their prize and were particularly impressed by its automatic open-and-close feature, vivid canopy color, and ability to close in reverse.
