Branded pens for successful promotions

Promotional pens are the perfect promotional giveaway for marketing events, exhibitions and advertising campaigns! We are confident to have the branded pens to suit your requirements and budget from charity fundraisers to companies raising awareness with customers and corporate clients. Research carried out by the BPMA (British Promotional Merchandise Association) demonstrates that promotional pens remain the number one choice for increasing brand awareness and creating a lasting impression.

1. Promotional pens are the ultimate way to raise brand awareness

There are many benefits to using custom printed pens and pencils to promote your business. A key one is their ability to travel far beyond the original recipient. Company pens seem to disappear when you need one most. If you've noticed this, you'll appreciate pens can carry a message to new potential customers. When someone asks for a pen, most people will provide one! The writer then walks off with it, never to be seen again! If you find business pens flying off your desk, you should ensure they go with your logo on them!

2. Logo printed pens are the perfect cost-effective business marketing and advertising tools

Businesses monitor their marketing budgets regularly to achieve the very best possible return on their investment. This is where pens offer a unique ability to reach a large audience cost-effectively. No other merchandising products get even close when it comes to the practicality, diverse range of styles and finishes, an array of colour options and low prices! Our best-selling Contour Extra Pens have dominated the UK market for decades and remain the pen of choice for many. Over the last few years, the range of affordable pens has substantially increased and now includes hundreds of different options.

3. Personalised pens in many colours and styles

With so many branded pens to choose from, it can be challenging to decide. When considering which pens to buy, there are two fundamental categories, plastic and metal. Plastic ballpoint pens are the cheapest option and the most popular marketing giveaways. They're the foundation of the promotional merchandise market with thousands of colours, styles and ink options. Luxury engraved metal ballpens are for those extra special occasions, corporate gifts for clients, celebrating a business anniversary or employee recognition. Although the above are the best selling pen categories, we also offer a wide range of novelty pensmulti-function pens, highlighter pens and stylus pens.
