Customized commercial sunshades are used for branding. The theme of the business logo and images of the products are highlighted through the awning. Hotels restaurants bookstores shopping malls and almost all types of stores take advantage of commercial awning. Canopy-like shades are often used at the main entrance of business houses. Some of the shops attach awnings over their showcases. These shades protect passersby from sun and rain. It has been also noticed that while escaping rain people often take interest in the products displayed in the windows and sometimes make a deal too! Shop-owners often customize the canopies to focus their newly launched products or special discounts. Being noticeable easily the message printed on the awning and canopies reach to a huge number of audiences without any effort.

But their aesthetic value is equally key. Retractable or fixed and made from a variety of materials namely aluminum fabric mesh and combinations of the three awnings can immediately set the mood via their shape and logos. Imagine you re an upscale classy Jazz/live entertainment restaurant where music is as important as food. In that case an awning that includes the graphic of a jazz ensemble or horned instruments and large musical notes might be the way to go. If going for a more subtle approach a shade structure patterned in the shape of red bricks might match an actual brick (or stone) exterior. Remember that little changes such as these can go a long way toward an entire revamp of your restaurant and its ambiance.
