Total Merchandise Celebrates 15 Years In The Industry

Grab the cake and blow up the balloons: it's our 15th birthday today!

Today (3 September) sees Total Merchandise marking 15 years in the promotional products industry. And we've got a very special treat for you - read on to find out more!

Total Merchandise was launched by Michelle Rae Stoddart, David Stoddart and Jason O'Connor (shown left-to-right above) in September 2004. Since those early days, when Total Merchandise was operated from spare rooms across two counties, the business has rocketed and is now considered to be one of the UK's largest suppliers of promotional products.

With Jay, Dave and Michelle still at the helm, Total Merchandise now has a team of close to 40 employees at its Essex-based HQ. Famed for our 'customer first' attitude and billed as 'your promotional partner', the Total Merchandise team prides itself on delivering the best promotional products at the best prices to its customers and giving them 5* service at every step of the process.

Total Merchandise 15th birthday

Fifteen years in the industry is an achievement our three directors are incredibly proud of. Jason explains: "From very humble beginnings, the last 15 years has been an amazing journey full of ups and downs but it has brought us to a point where we are recognised as one of the leading providers of promotional merchandise. This, we understand is no mean feat and we are grateful that we have been able to turn a lightbulb moment into this amazing business".

David and Michelle add: "We are thrilled to be one of the leading suppliers of promotional merchandise in the UK and it's all thanks to the fantastic team of staff we have around us, it simply would not have been possible without our sterling team. We would also like to thank our loyal customers for still choosing to use us after all these years. We must be doing something right...!"
