Love the idea but have no idea where to begin with choosing the right products for your business? We've shared a few of our tips below, as well as a few of our favourite products - and you can also explore our full range of UK-made promotional products for more ideas. 

The Benefits Of Choosing UK-Made Merchandise 

If you're able to do it, choosing promotional items that are made in the UK can come with a number of benefits, such as:

  • Faster turnaround times: Items that are made closer to home can often have shorter lead times as they don't need to be shipped from overseas. 
  • Supporting local economy: Choosing UK-made products supports the domestic economy, generating jobs and contributing to regional economic growth. 
  • Reduced environmental impact: Opting for locally manufactured products can result in a smaller environmental impact. As one of our suppliers explains: "The standards that UK factories have to adhere to regarding pollution and waste are generally much higher than many equivalents from overseas."

So what should you consider when choosing your UK-made merchandise? There are certainly a few factors that we'd always advise you to bear in mind when making your decision, including...

  • Who's going to use it? Considering your target demographic is always key when it comes to choosing any promotional items for your business. After all, if you pick a product that doesn't match your audience, they're less likely to use it - and your brand is less likely to get a chance to shine. 
  • How quickly do you need it? If you're working to a tight timeframe, use our handy Calendar tool to find the products that best match your precise timeline requirements.
  • What quantity do you require? Using our "Quantity required" box on the Made In UK category page, you can quickly find the items that are available to order in your chosen quantity.  

We have a huge range of UK-made promotional products and we know that it can feel daunting choosing the right product for your business. With that in mind, read on to discover our edit of some of the best UK-made products we stock, all ready to order with your logo today.
