It's Our Birthday! Celebrating 18 Years Of Total Merchandise

We've been busy celebrating at TM Towers recently: we've turned 18!

This milestone moment signifies 18 years since our founders Jay, Dave and Michelle first launched the business - and what an incredible journey it's been.

From a spare-room start-up to an award-winning industry leader, our 18th birthday is certainly something we're proud to be celebrating. 

Our official birthday celebration took place on 21st September, with the team and directors receiving gifts and cards to mark the occasion. There was also a lot of cake, with dozens of cupcakes and one big birthday cake adding a seriously sweet touch to elevenses. 

As an extra-special treat, the directors hired a pizza truck to pull up at the office in time for lunch - we're not sure our usual 12pm sandwich or salad will ever quite compare to a slice of Cha Cha Pizza's Heaven 'N' Hell Pepperoni...

And somehow we even managed to persuade some members of the team to strike a pose with the van while they were waiting for their pizzas. 

Best of all, we took an official 18th birthday group photo of (nearly all) the TM team. Working across a number of different departments, this amazing group of people make the business what it is. What a bunch!

It was an amazing day and the perfect way to celebrate 18 fantastic years at the forefront of the promotional merchandise industry. 

We also opted to mark the occasion by making a donation to an incredible charity. Dave and Michelle visited the HQ of East Anglia's Children Hospices (EACH) to present a cheque for £1,800, which will support the organisation's tireless work with poorly children and their families. 

And finally! We've been delighted to receive some kind and heartfelt messages from various industry colleagues who we've worked with over the years. Their continued support means the world to us.

We'll have to stop there before our head gets too big...

All in all, it's been quite the celebration - and from all the TM team, we'd like to say a massive "congratulations" to Jay, Michelle and Dave on 18 fantastic years of Total Merchandise.

And the celebration doesn't end there!
