Best Promotional Merchandise To Send Through The Post

Let's be real for a minute: who doesn't love receiving something exciting in the post? After all - anything beats bills, optician reminders and political canvassing flyers...

With that in mind, we can guarantee your customers will be delighted to receive a gift in the post from your business - and even more so if it's one you've specifically chosen with their needs and interests in mind.

Something to brighten their day, lift their mood and add a little extra practicality to their lives, and keep your branding in their minds all the while. Sounds good, no? 


Due to their postage-perfect dimensions, our edit of promotional products below are all the ideal size for posting to customers, whether as part of a specific upcoming campaign or to simply remind them you're still there and looking forward to working with them again soon. 

Why Should Your Business Consider A Mail-Out Campaign?

There are many reasons a direct marketing campaign could be hugely beneficial for your UK business. 

Sending a promotional product through the post gives your company the unique opportunity to put your branding directly in the hands of your customers, wherever they may be in the country. 

  • Reconnect with customers you haven't worked with or provided services to in a while - let them know you're still there and hope to work with them again soon.
  • Remind regular customers that you appreciate their business - use a carefully chosen piece of merchandise to let them know that you value their custom.
  • Reach out to customers who you aren't able to connect with in-person - a branded item makes a great way to introduce them to a new campaign or product launch.

How Can You Max Your Mail-Out Campaign?

Every business will have different criteria in mind when planning a post-based campaign, which will help influence the branded products you ultimately end up choosing. 

  • Consider your customer above all else. Factors such as demographic (age group, profession and so on) or specific interests will influence the type of product you choose to send. 
  • Be sure you to include some sort of call-to-action. What do you want your customer to do when they receive your product? For example, you might want to offer them an exclusive offer on your new product range or to visit your revamped website.
  • Decide what the measure of success will be. This ties in with the previous factor - but if brand awareness is on your wishlist, you can be confident that promotional merchandise is the perfect way to help keep eyes on your business. 

Without further ado, read on for some of our favourite promotional products that can match your mail-out campaign - and don't forget to contact our friendly and experienced Sales team today if you'd like any help or information!
