Did you know that the UK promotional products industry is a bustling sector, with over £1 billion spent annually on promotional merchandise? It's a testament to the enduring effectiveness of tangible marketing tools in a digital age.
The promotional products industry is incredibly diverse, offering everything from classic items like pens and mugs to innovative tech gadgets and sustainable alternatives like bamboo and recycled materials. Promotional products have been a part of marketing strategies for centuries. The concept dates back to the late 18th century when commemorative buttons were used to celebrate George Washington's election as president of the United States.
One of the most popular promotional products today is the humble pen. In fact, it's estimated that around 10,000 pens are distributed every minute worldwide as promotional items.
