Thank you parasol

Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a white paper parasol with black letters that says "Thank you" or "Just Married". I'm only using it for a few pictures and really do not want to spend $35-$45 for something that I'm barely going to use. If anyone has a slightly used one - I would love to take it off your hands.

Another idea I got from my sister (who is a graphic designer/photographer) was to get a plain white parasol and photoshop the words in after the fact. Ask your photographer if they can do that.

They only come in packs of 12 for $30.
Maybe check your local craft store to see if they sell them individually.
Great idea, Thanks!! Don't you just love OT! Do you have pictures of your finished product? Please share.

I did the same thing - bought the ones from Oriental Trading. I have to admit that one of them had a big brown spot on it, it was literally brown paper, but the rest were just fine.

 

I printed the letters out on Word - blew them up really big, taped them on the inside and painted on the outside. I think it came out pretty nice!
