    How can your small business stand out in today’s competitive environment? The answer; memorable merchandise!
    There are over 5.7 million small businesses and a rising number of start-ups in the UK, all trying to impress investors and penetrate their market to significantly increase their share to make a name for themselves.

    With 79% of consumers researching a brand after receiving a promotional product, merchandise is not to be overlooked when it comes to maximising brand awareness and driving traffic to a website.

    A common misconception among many SME directors and marketers is the high cost associated with merchandise to match the striking imagery and multiple colours used on their existing digital marketing collateral; this is not true.

    “Full-colour” is our buzzword for SMEs and start-ups, because we have a range of low cost, high-quality promotional items that are available to be printed in full colour with a bespoke design at no additional cost!

    Full-colour desktop items provide a unique marketing opportunity for SMEs. With there being an average of 2080 working hours a year (excluding allocated annual leave), promotional desktop items will provide exposure for that entirety of that period, especially if they are printed with attention-grabbing artwork!
