Why are promotional products important?

Promotional merchandise are products branded with a logo or slogan and distributed at little or no cost to promote a brand or corportate identity. There primary purpose is to increase sales, customer loyalty and brand awareness.

The positive impact on brand awareness by using low-cost giveaways and swag branded with your logo has been proven beyond doubt! Research carried out by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA) states that 81% of recipients kept a personalised gift on their desk, or in regular use for at least two years.

Naturally, this gives your brand lots of time to boost recognition and brand awareness. Long after the giveaway has ended, your printed pens, bags, water bottles, and more will keep your promotional efforts alive. They will keep driving customer action with twice as much power as some other traditional methods, such as radio ads.

The appeal of branded products is simple; your target audience cannot look past them by exiting a page online or ignoring or muting them. Marketing your business with promotional merchandise means you’re taking advantage of the realm of tangible prompts that consumers can hold in their hands and use at home, in the office, outdoors, and more.

Therefore, they’re going to be aware of your business and services everywhere they go. Even better, they will inspire others to remember your brand too!

Tapping into the audience’s subconscious, your printed giveaways will subtly promote your brand among consumers, drawing attention to your branding whenever the item is in use. And the more useful and everyday-friendly, the better!

Even something as casual as drinking coffee can become a powerful tool for promotion. Your printed mug will link your brand with that feeling of relief of getting a good cuppa in the morning. Similarly, a promotional power bank enhanced with your logo should encourage the idea of your business always being there for your consumers in the time of need!

Lacking inspiration right now, or you aren’t sure what your audience may prefer? We offer the classic giveaways everyone can appreciate, such as printed tote bags and promotional mugs, as well as a range of branded pens that can do more than write on paper. Novelty items, such as feather pens, and multi-function writing tools, like our multi-colour and contour light pens, instantly grab attention with their usefulness and uniqueness.

But even if desk and office essentials aren’t your thing, there are so many more promotional items to look into. Remember - they’re all winners if you pair them with the right demographic.

The preferred supplier to UK businesses

Many suppliers have gone down the route of employing the 'cheapest' possible staff to cut costs! By doing so, the buying experience has shifted towards the do-it-yourself, and in many cases 'we don't care' attitude!

We value our staff and only employ industry trained product experts, not sales order takers! We believe you should be able to discuss your marketing campaign and fulfilment requirements with a motivated specialist. One who cares for you as much as we care for them!

Our wide range of customers includes schools, colleges, universities, NHS, councils, government bodies, sports and fitness clubs, charities, non-profit organisations, design agencies, event marketing companies, large and small corporates and many more!

Need more convincing? We would hope the countless five-star customer reviews and industry awards we've received would speak for themselves! But if you need more information then simply give us a call and say hello!

From the very initial enquiry through to delivery, the team were professional, polite and exceptionally efficient - I have dealt with many other companies in the past and their service did not come close to that which I received. I will be using them again for future conferences, events and exhibitions!
