Promotional Products Week (12th – 16th September)

Each year in the Promotional Products Industry we celebrate what we are with Promotional Products Week – basically a celebration of our industry to help you, our customers, see the benefit of investing your marketing spend in Promotional Products. in Conjunction with the BPMA (The British Promotional Merchandise Association) the whole industry joins together to promote what we do.

Now it would be easy for us to tell you how wonderful we are (we are trust us) and tell you why you need to buy from us but the BPMA have gone one step further and commissioned some independent research* into our industry through recognised Marketing agencies & Specialist analysis to ensure that the facts we present are correct and official.

Below we have those results which show some facts and figures as to why promotional products work, take a look and if you are convinced and want to discuss how we can help your brand then please do give us a call on  0121 212 1220 and we will be delighted to be of assistance
