Promotional Branded Pens UK

Branded pens remain the most popular promotional product for a reason. Pens are great for giveaways: you don’t need to stock multiple sizes or cater to different audiences, yet you can easily personalise them with your own style. They’re obviously useful and easy to slip in a pocket, so passers-by are happy to collect a free gift. Promotional merchandise pens often get used and can last months before they’re thrown away – much longer than a business card or flyer.

Is a merchandise pen the right choice?

While promotional pens are a great tool to have in your giveaway cupboard, they’re not the only option. We strongly recommend considering the alternatives available to see if a pen is truly the best fit for your marketing situation. As an example, takeaway companies often do well by giving away promotional fridge magnets, as there’s a direct link between looking at (or in) the fridge and deciding to order a takeaway. On the flip side, a branded stylus for touch screen phones and tablets may do better than a pen in a high tech business community and at trade shows printed tote bags are always popular. We also have a variety of choices of promotional merchandise to go alongside promotional pens such as pencils, coasters or keyrings.

We have numerous options to compare from with our pen selection, each item can have your design, prints, or labels. You can have choose the quantity you need, you could take hundreds or a few for your tradeshows. Prices are determined by the configuration of the pen and the quantity, we have such a variety you can rest assure that you will find the right pen, for the right price.

How long will delivery take?
Delivery time varies from product to product, on average most products take 3 weeks from artwork approval.
What is the minimum order quantity (MOQ)?
This depends on the product; low cost promotional items have a much higher MOQ compared to premium corporate gifts.
What is origination?
This is the cost of preparing your artwork and setting up the print machinery. The cost of origination will vary depending on the product and the print method that is used. The number of print colours will also have an effect on the origination cost. If you order online the cost of origination has already been included in the price and will not be charged additionally.
Why do we get charged repeat origination?
In some instances even if you are placing a repeat order you may still be charged a repeat origination. This will usually be less than the original set up, but it will still be charged as the print machinery still needs to be set up in the same way.
Why do we pay carriage – can we collect from you?
We outsource the print of our merchandise products to specialist printers with expertise in decorating different merchandise products and materials to guarantee the highest quality of print on your promotional products. Your branded merchandise gets delivered to you directly from our printer, which is far more cost and time effective.
Why do we pay carriage on each item?
If you order multiple promotional products it is possible that they will be sourced from different suppliers and printers located mainly in the UK, Europe and Far East. We work with a huge range of different suppliers and printers who specialise in particular areas. For example if you order corporate lanyards and t-shirts from us, it is likely that your lanyards will be printed in the Far East and your t-shirts will be printed in the UK. Your printed products will be delivered to you directly from our chosen specialist printer to save you time and money.
Why can’t my artwork be supplied as a PDF, JPEG or a TIF file?
To ensure the best possible print results we ask that your artwork is supplied as a vectorised EPS file this is because this file format allows us to fully edit your artwork. We can make it bigger or smaller to fit required print areas without losing any quality. We can also change the colour of the text if required. A PDF, JPEG or TIF file does not allow us to edit the artwork in the same way and we cannot guarantee the required print quality.
How should I send my artwork?
Please send us your artwork via email as a vectorised eps file.
