Caring for Your Casita Canopy Graphic



At San Diego Sign Company, we stand behind our products 100%, even after they’ve left our warehouse. We also know that you, our customers, want to keep your products looking and functioning like brand-new for as long as possible. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at our popular Casita Canopy and how to keep your canopy graphics looking as though they just came off the printer.

The life expectancy of your Casita Canopy has to do with a couple of different factors, including: (a) how it is used, (b) how well it is maintained, and (c) how it is stored. Depending on your specific event, your Casita may need to be cleaned before it can be packed and stored.


Here are some helpful tips for cleaning and storing your Casita Canopy to keep it looking great for many years to come:


  1. If your tent has any dirt on it, you’ll want to brush as much of that off as possible before using any cleaners.
  2. NEVER put your canopy in a washing machine or dryer.
  3. For any stains, spot clean with a carpet cleaner or spot remover like Shout!™. You will want to refrain from using any detergent-type cleaners on the UV Casita as this could affect the water resistance of the tent fabric. However, stock canopies can be hand washed with a mild detergent like liquid dish soap and air dried. Rinse thoroughly and allow the tent to dry completely.
  4. Before storing, be sure the tent is completely dry, especially along finished seams. DO NOT store when damp or wet as mold may develop.
  5. Store in a cool, dry area. (It is recommended to store your tent in its travel bag or hard case).


Don’t forget that there are lots of cool add-ons and accessories that can go with your Casita to add an extra “wow” factor to your display. There is the option to add backwalls and sidewalls to any Casita. We also carry flag connectors (these work with small feather banners), sand bag covers, canopy bags and La Caja hard cases for our Casita Canopies, so you’re sure to find absolutely everything you need for a complete, stunning tent display.

New Popular Big Displays. Filling the 30 Foot Gap.

Sometimes you need a large display, but perhaps it’s not large enough to keep its portability, its easy setup and its light weight. You have to go custom. You don’t wanna go custom.

But what if I told you we have a super easy fabric pop up display that is 30 feet wide?

And it fits into one, I repeat, 1 travel bag! It’s only 65 lbs. Geometric accordion-like frame has plastic hooks attached that clip together to secure. Fabric comes attached, (though we recommend you remove graphic for long-term storage), and stays put with Velcro. Convenient in travel mode, in setup mode, and in takedown-storage mode—fits into a small space!

Introducing the 30 ft RPL Stretch Fabric Pop Up Display!
Let’s take a closer look at some pictures and setup video below!







Here is the frame expanded completely. Very simple.








Back to School, Back to Basics

It’s that time of year already...back to school. And what does that mean? Busy, busy with extracurricular activities! Let’s see, we have school sports and after-school clubs. PTA fundraisers and Fall Festivals. School plays and school car washes. Football games and homecoming.

Sounds like signs for days, right? Well, since we’re back to school, let’s get back to basics. Promote with signs that don’t break the bank!

The good news is that all you need is a simple hem & grommet banner to promote your school event. It’s a sign that you can roll up and take to go, or leave up for a while.  What’s more is that graphics on this material are printed with UV cured inks, making long-lasting impressions and preventing color-fading from the strong sunlight.

So, get a custom banner (“sports banner”). Choose our textured outdoor material - 13oz Scrim Vinyl - that’s only $7/sqft.

Simply, select hem and grommet finishing if you plan to zip tie your banner onto a chain link fence. Other finishings w…

New Advertising Umbrellas!

An Umbrella Story

My aunt drinks beer, sometimes. She likes bitter and hoppy flavors. Pale Ales, Pilsners. One day, as she was walking up to a restaurant for lunch, she noticed an umbrella with an advertisement for “Duvel” on the front patio. It piqued her interest, having never heard of Duvel.

Once seated, she asked the server about it. She found out it is a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Perfect! She’ll take one. She tried it. She loved it. She drank it all.

A few years after, she still loves to drink Duvel, sometimes. She even bought a fancy Duvel chalice for drinking the beer at home. All because of an umbrella with an advertisement. Fancy that!
