Just In: The Promotional Merchandise That Will Be Trending In 2022

For 2022, we predict the promotional merchandise that will be trending is UK-made products. Why? Read on to find out...


Why Choose British-Made Promotional Merchandise?

The beauty of choosing UK-manufactured products for your next marketing campaign or promotional endeavour is that they can shine an eco-friendly light on your business and the services it offers. For one thing, choosing branded merchandise that has been made in the UK means items have a reduced carbon footprint.

The further a product must travel to reach its final destination, the higher (in theory) the carbon footprint of that product will be. Choosing an item that has been created closer to home often means a reduced carbon footprint - which in turn can make a great talking point with your customers, as well as boost your company's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) credentials.

There is also the argument that British-made products are manufactured to a slightly better standard, resulting in a higher quality item with a longer-lasting nature. When looking at promotional merchandise, this means there's an opportunity to extend your brand awareness and keep your logo in your customers' hands for longer.

With all of that in mind, what are our best-selling UK-manufactured merch?
