    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.

      I purchased some cheap paper parasols from oriental trading & used paint from the local craft store to paint them myself.

      Here is link:

      They only come in packs of 12 for $30.
      Maybe check your local craft store to see if they sell them individually.

        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.

                How were the quality of the ones you received from oriental trading?

                  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!

                      Yes, I do plan on selling it when I'm done! Don't really know what else I'd use it for I guess.
