In honour of Black Friday 2022, Total Merchandise is delighted to present you and your business with a wide range of promotional discounts on all sorts of branded items, including everything from promotional pens to printed mugs. Read on to find out more and explore our offers!
What Is Black Friday?
An excellent question. Black Friday originated (where else?) in America and traditionally takes place on the day after Thanksgiving. The event has informally existed since 1952 and marks the unofficial start of America's Christmas shopping season, first becoming the US' busiest shopping day in 2003. The popularity of Black Friday has spread across the globe, with the UK first significantly participating in 2014.
The event isn't confined just to the Friday though - rather, it extends into so-called "Cyber Monday" (which encourages shoppers to make the most of online discounts), with the weekend in between jammed full of irresistible discounts, too. 'Tis the season! The week containing Black Friday and Cyber Monday is often referred to as "Cyber Week".
According to stats shared by Finder, Brits will spend just under £4 billion on Black Friday and Cyber Monday bargains this year. And it's not all about Christmas shopping and updating your wardrobe: rather, Black Friday can be the perfect opportunity to invest in some much-needed essentials for your business, too.
Whether you're planning an event, want to fire up a marketing campaign or are simply looking to top-up in-house supplies (because let's face it: you can never have enough pens...), we've got promotional discounts that are too good to ignore.

Finally: 3 tips for bagging a bargain for your brand...
- Know what you're looking for. With 100s of offers out there clamouring for your attention, having an idea - no matter how vague - of what you're searching for will make things easier. Whether you're ordering promotional merchandise for a specific event or are simply looking to replenish in-house supplies, having a rough idea of what sort of items you want and how much you're happy to spend can make things a lot easier.
- Be mindful of when discounts end. It sounds like basic advice but it can pay to be mindful of when offers expire so as to ensure you don't miss out. If you know that you'll need to go through rounds of approvals before you can sign-off on an order, make sure you factor that in so as to not miss the saving.
- Don't forget that the prices that Total Merchandise shows include everything. So the final figure you see on the page is what you'll pay - there are no hidden delivery costs or printing charges. Knowing that you won't be hit with any extra costs down the line can make the purchasing process that little bit easier, no?
