Our heavy-duty framework starts with the MONARCHTENT Standard Peak. When most people think of a pop-up canopy, they think of a 10x10 pop-up with a design featuring four panels and four valances. What they don’t think of, though, is, “How long is this going to last?” Or “Am I going to stand out enough at my next event?”

That’s where TentCraft excels. As an American manufacturer of custom pop-up tents, we control your event tent's quality — and design — from the beginning to the end.

That’s why the MONARCHTENT Standard Peak features a peak height of nearly 12 feet, which is the highest in the industry. If you attach the included custom-printed peak flag, that peak height elevates to more than 17 feet!

It’s also why we feel confident enough to back up your tent’s frame with a lifetime warranty.

Our competitors import tent frames from overseas. We think controlling the quality instead of outsourcing it is a better path forward.

Who Do We Work With?

From our production facility in Northern Michigan, we manufacture and sell custom tents, pop-up structures and signage to support outdoor events and experiences across North America. About 50% of our business is with experiential marketing agencies and bigger brands; the other half is made up of smaller brands and organizations, like nonprofits, restaurants, breweries, cannabis companies, municipalities, schools and universities, sports teams, healthcare organizations, construction companies, and many other industries.

Is MONARCHTENT Right for Me?

We’re the first people to say MONARCHTENT isn’t for everyone. While everyone wants a professional-grade canopy, not everyone is ready to make this level of investment in their business. The MONARCHTENT collection is for people who…

  •   Expect durability that comes with a lifetime frame warranty and 7-year canopy warranty
  •   Look for something different to help their brand stand out.
  •   Run or work for an experiential marketing agency trusted to represent a world-class brand experience.
  •   Want something that’s customizable and heavy duty.
  •   Utilize pop-up tents as their main footprint for their business.
  •   Have inexperienced users setting tents up and need something battle-tested.
  •   Works for an organization with a lengthy purchasing process and can’t afford to start all over again.
  •   Needs better protection against costly or time-consuming damages.
  •   Are comfortable spending at least $2,498 for a custom-printed, heavy-duty pop-up tent.
  •   Experienced the frustration and regret of having to replace a cheaper solution.
  •   Set up in regions with heavy winds and rain.
  •   Don’t have the time or patience to deal with pop-up tents breaking easily.
  •   Set up tents several times a month or year.
  •   Work with a short timeline and need something fast.
  •   Need something that can be tailored to a specific use application, like food service, product display, drive-through, etc.
  •   Needs a non-standard head clearance.
  •   Focuses on a strong ROI when they purchase assets for clients or their own business.

We're the Quality Leader - Not the Price Leader

Instead of continually looking for a cheaper tent that’s manufactured by a third-party factory overseas, we choose to build everything in-house. This allows us to push the envelope of durability, ease of use, and longevity for all of our event solutions. We’re the quality leader—and we believe that investing in quality is cheaper in the long run. Our customers share this philosophy, especially because many have experienced the frustration and regret of going the cheaper route and wasting both time and money trying to find a replacement.


Pricing depends on a number of factors including tent size, accessories, custom printing & more. The average MONARCHTENT customer invests $3,000 to $4,500 into their professional structure.

Heavy-Duty Canopy Designs

At TentCraft, we understand the importance of standing out at an event. That’s why in addition to the MONARCHTENT Standard Peak, we’ve also designed and handcrafted a collection of canopy designs. Explore our different styles and find something that fits with your brand.


Ideal for indoor and outdoor events, MONARCHFLATROOF is a versatile and unique pop-up tent designed for vendors who often face height restrictions. When height isn’t an issue, attach a custom peak flag or banner to better stand out at events.


For those who want the appearance and durability of a frame tent, but the ease of setup of a pop-up tent, MONARCHGABLE is an attractive option. Our MONARCHGABLE has been used as an innovative drive-thru canopy, in addition to a free sample booth in Times Square.


Also known as a pagoda marquee tent, the MONARCHREACH provides an extra 18” overhang of shade and additional branding real estate, making it a popular choice for farmers markets. MONARCHREACH also includes a free custom-printed peak flag.


The MONARCHSTOREFRONT is a 2-in-1 design that gives businesses versatility depending on the location of their event. You can set up the tent to feature a large billboard with ample real estate for branding or push the tall, flat side against a wall for a striking branded slope. Your custom event canopy will definitely stick out in a crowd!


More sides. More branding space. More visitors. The MONARCHHEX is designed for a 360-degree customer experience, making it perfect for concessions, sampling, and ticketing solutions. The only thing there isn’t more of is setup time — it takes just as long to set up as our standard pop-up tents.


An easy-to-transport market stall built to generate face-to-face conversations, our heavy-duty MONARCHSTALL is the pop-up canopy tent redefined. Designed for its portability and ease of use, the MONARCHSTALL is designed for event power users who are used to dealing with smaller event footprints.

Features & Benefits: What's Included with MONARCHTENT

When you invest in MONARCHTENT, you’re purchasing an entire system handcrafted with American ingenuity and backed up by a lifetime warranty. We don’t just say MONARCHTENT is the toughest pop-up canopy on the market — we prove it with these heavy-duty features:

Heavy-Duty-All-Aluminum Framework

A heavy-duty pop-up tent is a professional, commercial-grade structure manufactured with an all-aluminum frame. Because aluminum is a third of the weight of steel, we can manufacture a nearly-indestructible tent frame with higher-gauge legs that doesn’t weigh hundreds of pounds.

The aluminum we fabricate at our production facility in Traverse City, Michigan is anodized — an electrical process that enhances the surface of the metal. As a result, our tent frames will NEVER rust.

In terms of hardness, anodized aluminum is second only to diamonds.

Certified Wind Ratings

Most pop-up canopy tents on the market today don’t include certified wind ratings, but that’s not the case with the TentCraft MONARCHTENT. Our 10x10 MONARCHTENT, when properly ballasted, comes with a certified wind rating of 35 mph. Those ratings are adjusted with the size of your tent and as you add things like walls to the structure, which adds wind resistance.

Precision-Fit, All-Weather Canopy

Any color. Any graphic. TentCraft prints all of its custom tents using dye-sublimation technology, which allows the canopy to absorb the ink and become part of the fabric. As a result, the print cannot be damaged with wear and it won’t crack or peel.

Transport Kit & Patented Wheel Kit

While aluminum is lighter than steel, our custom pop-up tents are no slouch in the weight department. To make transportation easier to and from events, we include our all-weather transport bag and patented all-terrain wheel kit.

In a matter of seconds, one person can wheel a tent weighing over 100 lbs. to an event location without worrying about the risk of puncture.

Custom-Printed Peak Flag/Banner

Standing out at events is important. So, in addition to manufacturing a heavy-duty pop-up tent with the highest peak height in the industry, we take it a step further by including a custom-printed peak flag or banner, depending on the size of your tent.

When installed, the peak flag brings your tent’s height to 17’2” — more than 7 feet taller than most pop-up tents in the industry.

The peak flag and peak banner, which is compatible with the entire MONARCHTENT lineup, adds more branding opportunities to your tent and ensures event attendees can always spot your setup.

Heavy Duty Spiral Staking Kit

Staking your pop-up tent into the ground is always preferred to take full advantage of maximum wind ratings. To that end, we include a heavy-duty spiral staking kit for quick ballasting.

Learn more about how to anchor your canopy tent and how much weight is needed for a 10x10, our most popular size.

Optional: Black Legs

Black frames are a unique option to customize your pop up tent and help your brand stand out. Most companies only offer frames in clear. Because we make our frames in-house, we’re able to offer both standard (clear) and black anodized aluminum frames.


From custom counters to weighted footplates, heating kits, and more, TentCraft sells a number of high-quality accessories that perfectly complement your custom MONARCHTENT Standard Peak.

What Made In America Means

Play video Video thumbnail

Made In America

Some companies throw around the phrase, “Made in America,” pretty loosely in our opinion. Truth be told, more than 95% of the custom tent industry today imports metal frames from overseas and prints the branded canopies in the U.S.

At TentCraft, we choose to control quality, focus on speed, and support American craftsmanship — right here in Northern Michigan. We manufacture all of our aluminum tent frames in house and print the branded canopies in the same facility. All of our custom solutions are setup for a final inspection, then carefully packaged and shipped from our headquarters near Lake Michigan to all corners of the United States.

American made. American sourced. American jobs.

We believe our way is better.

TentCrafters focus on innovation, quality, and customization to better serve our customers. And that results in some obvious and not-so-obvious benefits.

Of course, there’s that good feeling you get supporting good old-fashioned American manufacturing. But when you need a custom tent tailored to your brand and event, you want a team of experts on your side who are all under the same roof. From designing your canopy to figuring out a way to create some off-the-wall structure to really stand out at your next event, our knowledgeable team of sales reps, project managers, creative artists, metal fabricators, printing specialists, and sewing savants collaboratively bring your pie-in-the-sky idea to life.

  • How much does MONARCHTENT cost?
  • MONARCHTENT starts at $2,499 and goes up based on size, configuration, and custom printing needs.

  • How much does MONARCHTENT weigh?
  • A MONARCHTENT weighs about 75lbs for a 10x10 with the canopy. The weight obviously goes up with the size of your tent.

  • How many people does it take to set up MONARCHTENT?
  • A 10x10 MONARCHTENT can be set up by one person, but it’s significantly easier with an extra set of hands. A larger MONARCHTENT requires two to four people to set up due to the weight.

  • How much wind can MONARCHTENT handle?
  • A 10x10 MONARCHTENT is wind rated at 35 mph when properly ballasted. Wind ratings vary based on your tent setup. A 10x10 with three sidewalls, for instance, has a lower wind rating because the walls create more friction against the wind.

  • What type of UV protection does MONARCHTENT offer?
  • The MONARCHTENT canopy is made from a proprietary material called Duranti, which is UV-resistant, blocking 99.95% of UV-A & UV-B Rays. In other words, you’re safe from the sun when under the canopy.

  • How will my MONARCHTENT ship?
  • Every MONARCHTENT ships in a heavy-duty bag with an integrated wheel kit for safe and easy transport. Your tent’s printed peak flag, stake kit, and instructions are also carefully packed in the box. MONARCHTENT typically ships via a ground shipping method, but if you’re ordering weighted footplates, it will require a freight delivery due to the weight.

  • How tall is the peak flag/peak banner?
  • The MONARCHTENT peak flag is 5'4" and the peak banner is 2'3".
