5 Reasons to buy branded pens for your company logo promotions?

Pens continue to remain the preferred choice for savvy marketing experts when it comes to brand promotions. There are few branding opportunities which are more cost effective than a pen featuring a logo and message. Certainly there are none which offer the same value and return on investment. 

Research carried out by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA) demonstrates that promotional pens remain the number one choice when it comes to increasing brand awareness and creating a lasting impression.

1. Promotional pens for business - the ultimate practical brand ambassadors

There are many benefits to using custom pens and pencils to promote your business, but a key one is their ability to travel far beyond the original recipient. 

Company pens seem to disappear when you need one most, and if you've experienced this then you'll appreciate the great ability that they have to carry your message to new potential customers.

When someone requires a pen, one is often duly provided and in most cases the writer simply walks off with it. If you find yourself in a situation where they are flying off your desk,  you may as well ensure they are going with your logo printed on them.

2. The perfect cost-effective business marketing and advertising solution

Businesses are continually monitoring their marketing budgets with a view to achieving the best possible return on investment.

This is where high quality UK pens and writing instruments are the stand out solution for many, with their amazing ability to reach a large audience cost effectively.

There are simply no other printed products which come close to the practicality, range of styles and colours and budget friendliness that promotional pens have to offer, hence they continue to be the number one promotional product year after year.

3. Personalised pen options - making the right choice

With so many printed promotional pens to choose from it can be a daunting task. When considering which pen types are the right ones for your company needs they can be split into two key categories, plastic and metal pens.

Plastic ballpoint pens are the cheapest option and by far the most popular when it comes to general giveaways. They represent the foundation of the promotional merchandise market with thousands of different colours, styles and ink options.

Luxury engraved metal pens are used for those extra special occasions such as corporate gifts for valued clients, in order to celebrate a business anniversary or employee recognition.


4. Pen printing and branding options

We offer an extensive choice of bespoke printing options ranging from single side print to full wrap-around printing and also print to the clip for added brand exposure. 

We are at the forefront of the latest print technology, and can offer a unique range of ballpens and other promotional items which can be personalised in UltraHD print allowing us to reproduce full colour images and logos to a standard most suppliers can only dream of.

In addition, we offer precision laser engraving on our executive pens to create a truly professional finish which is ideal for those special corporate giveaways or business gifts.

Design and Artwork Questions

Assuming you are happy with your quotation, simply email your logo and imprint details to your dedicated Account Manager. Files we prefer to receive are EPS, AI and PDF vector formats; JPG and PNG files can sometimes be accepted. Please send us the highest resolution file you have available.

If your art resolution is too low to convert, we may have to redraw it and additional charges could incur depending on the complexity. This also could result in additional production time.

Production requires artwork to be at least 150 dots per inch at print size.
Very detailed artwork does not print well on pens because of the small imprint area available. If we cannot use your artwork, we will try to provide you with options. We may suggest using only text.

We typically keep artwork/designs on file for approximately three years.
We have 1,000’s of fonts to choose from for your pens imprint. If you want to use your own font, you must convert it to outlines (graphics) in Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or a similar program before sending it to us.

CMYK Value is a four-color process that layers cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink to form your chosen colour. CMYK (UltraHD print) is best for projects with multiple-coloured imprints, such as photographs.
