Has the growing choice of promotional merchandise available made selecting the right corporate giveaway gift a confusing or daunting task? We all realise the importance of advertising your marketing campaign or business brand. The right choice can help keep your company logo first and foremost in your customers’ minds at all times, far ahead of all your competitors. Knowing that can only make the decision more overwhelming. If you’re feeling the pressure, then knowing what works for businesses all over the UK and beyond could help make that choice easier for you. 

You might feel more at ease to know you’ve invested in a product to advertise your company logo that has had proven success over the years. Below we’ve identified the all-time Top 10 Best-selling Branded Merchandise, proven by customers to be the people’s choice of marketing ideas.

Cotton Tote Bags

With the environment a topic on everyone’s lips all over the world, it’s only logical that promotional Cotton Tote Bags are one of the most successful branded giveaways around. If you’re hoping to advertise your company brand in an eco-friendly light, they are a ‘natural’ choice. Made from sustainable cotton, the preferred choice for customers due to its durability and softness, they are a great, longer-lasting alternative to plastic carrier bags. Printed Tote Bags can be reused and again not only with every shop but as school bags, book bags, laundry bags and more – highly versatile, cost-effective, and even recently associated as an everyday fashion accessory to appeal to all your clients at a great low price.

Brite Mat Mouse Mat

With a computer in every office and almost every home around the country, the appeal of a branded mouse mat is unquestionable. If you have a lot of information you want to put on display for your customers to peruse at leisure, then a customised Brite Mat Mouse Mat is a practical way of keeping your brand and details close at hand throughout the workday. Rigid and robust, they are developed for optical mice to suit current trends and even contain recycled general-purpose polystyrene and paper for eco-friendly businesses and campaigns. If you need to print lots of detail or even photographic images, the simple flat surface creates an ideal opportunity for any marketing campaign.

Brite Mat Coaster

If you don’t want to tie your corporate brand to a desk then printed Brite Mat Coasters are a perfect choice, suited to businesses and campaigns of all kinds and able to display your company logo from any surface that holds drinks. Ideal for use around the home, the workplace, cafes, restaurants, bars and more. When your customers enjoy a cup of tea or a favourite bubbly beverage they are in a more relaxed frame of mind, able to take in your promotional brand message more efficiently. If you want to make maximum impact at minimal cost, they can even be ordered in addition to the matching personalised Brite Mat Mouse Mat for a fully branded desk set. You can also draw even more attention to your marketing campaign by printing in eye-catching full colour.

Cambridge Mugs

Make sure you don’t miss a trick with arguably the most recognisable personalised giveaway in the industry. Practical and low cost, useful to almost every customer, the Cambridge Promotional Mug is probably your best choice if you want guaranteed use for your branded merchandise. The classic, clean lines not only ensure suitability to all marketing campaigns but also a generous print area that will put your company logo on display with every sip. If you’re looking for a little something extra, we even do various packaging options to help you give your clients an extra special business gift.

Shaped Flexible Fridge Magnets

If you’re working to a tight budget but don’t want to compromise on brand exposure, personalised Shaped Flexible Fridge Magnets printed with your corporate logo or slogan are an excellent choice. Lightweight and compact, so perfect for direct mail campaigns, they also come in a host of over 60 standard shapes to choose from, enabling you to achieve a unique finish tailored to your specific business type at great low prices. They can be attached to any fridge, magnetic whiteboard or noticeboard, displaying your company name in place for all to see. Branded via under surface printing to further extend the advertising life.

Fruit of the Loom Valueweight T-Shirts

Do you need staff uniform for an event or exhibition, or perhaps a charity fundraiser? Or would you simply like to invest in a mobile advertising solution that will flaunt your corporate brand at great low prices each time they are worn in any location? Promotional Fruit of the Loom Valueweight T-Shirts manufactured from Belcoro yarn for a softer feel, have extensive colour options to enable you to make a choice that suits your company colours. They also offer the added reassurance of associating your marketing campaign with a renowned clothing brand.

Curvy Ballpens

When you’re after a low-cost branded giveaway with style and appeal, printed Curvy Pens with their classy silver hued trims have been a proven success over the years. One of the most iconic writing instruments in the promotional industry, they are also one of the cheapest pens available yet still offer a sense of practicality and comfort, thanks to the ergonomic grips and curvaceous design. The nature of the barrel allows for a wider brand area, ideal for businesses looking to include more information in their advertising campaign, or even just have maximum impact with a larger company logo.

Promotional Mint Cards

If you have a corporate marketing campaign with a lot of information or a myriad of colours, then a large print area on a simple, understated branded giveaway is the ideal solution. Promotional Mint Cards can be personalised in up to full-colour print in as little as 72 hours, extending their appeal to companies in need of promotional merchandise fast. The mints are sugar-free to suit even the calorie conscious and the slimline design makes them ideal for mail shots, events and trade shows, hospitality, universities, goody bags and more. One of the most budget-friendly sweet merchandise available, fully certified to Global Standards for your peace of mind.

Promotional Message Bugs

Sometimes even the smallest promotional giveaways make all the difference. If you’re after something fun and simple, with 40 colour options to choose from and a ribbon printed in eye-catching full colour, branded Message Bugs can easily become unique advertising opportunities tailored specifically to your company colours at great low prices. Also known as Logo Bugs, Pom Poms or Fluffy Bugs, they can be used as display items at corporate events or desks, or for school leavers, incentive gifts, fun little rewards, the possibilities are endless at a price to suit all budgets.

USB Flashdrive Twist

It can be easy to spend too much on promotional tech business gifts, but the classic branded USB Flashdrive Twist can deliver practicality and high-perceived value at incredibly low prices. Ideal for students, office workers or even casual use, these personalised memory sticks allow you to transfer your important files from one location to another, or carry them with you on the road for when you need them most. Not only can they be customised with your company logo via engraving or printing, but they can even have a marketing message or product release information pre-uploaded for you to hand out to your prospective customers free of charge.
