The Top Promotional Products of 2017

2017 has been a fun year for the more inventive promotional product. Don’t get me wrong, the standard, essential products such as pens, lanyards and leaflets are still flying out to customers but, companies are becoming much more daring with the types of promotional products they are giving away to their customers.

Technology related items

Technology is fast growing and the consumables to go alongside are useful and desired. Mobile phone accessories such as earphones, mobile phone cases, mobile phone stands are quickly becoming popular promotional products that companies gift to their customers. Branding these practical items means that they will be seen by a huge array of people day to day.

Fun workwear

Formal shirts, polo-shirts and t-shirts are always going to be needed within the uniform choices for your company but, you can’t always see a branded shirt on someone when they’re out and about in the frosty winter.Fleeces, gilets and coats are becoming much more popular to brand, so you can promote your company, whatever the weather.

Higher value items over cheaper branded items

This might not be what budget buyers want to hear but, when consumers are attending exhibitions or events they are setting their sights higher than the less expensive branded giveaways that are on offer. Branded sweets, trolley coins and mugs will always be appreciated but, top end promotional giveaways such as branded power banks, promotional golf umbrellas and bespoke diaries are becoming more common , valued freebies.

Exhibition kit

At exhibitions the stands and apparel are also becoming more brand heavy with not only the company name on the stands but also the table cloths, napkins, and in some cases, printed on the stools and tables that’s the exhibitor is sitting on.

Every Daffodil Counts: Marie Curie

 

Daffodils

 

March is here and it’s the month of the Daffodil. Therefore, we are proud to be working with Marie Curie, the national charity that specialises in giving care and support for people living with any terminal illness. We have recently supplied them with a large quantity of Marie Curie pens, which will be supplied to their network of over 500 fundraising support groups across the UK. These volunteers will use them on an ongoing basis as giveaways to their local supporters and donors.

Promotional Pens are the gift that keeps on giving because they are not only useful and reliable, but these specific ones will have the Marie Curie brand on so more people can become aware of what amazing work the charity does for people, giving them the brand recognition they deserve.

Marie Curie have been providing vital care and support for people living with terminal illnesses and their families for over 65 years and in 2016 alone, they cared for over 40,000 people across the UK. For every £1 Marie Curie raises, these go towards helping people living with terminal illnesses and their families by giving them the support they need the most. Without their supporters, they wouldn’t be able to provide vital care and support to the people who need them at an extremely difficult time.

Jack Thomas, Managing Director of BMT commented:

“I am delighted to be working with such a prestigious organisation as Marie Curie. They have over 2,000 nurses and 9,400 regular volunteers. We are producing a large volume of promotional pens for them, and in the past have produced other promotional items such as t-shirts, cotton shopper bags and umbrellas. These types of promotional items are great for brand awareness which is key to sustaining the support & care they give to over 31,000 people every year”.

So what can you do raise awareness and support Marie Curie?

Support the Great Daffodil Appeal – By supporting the Great Daffodil Appeal, you will be helping nurses across the UK to care for people living with a terminal illness. Whether you donate online, in your local charity shop or simply popping money into a Marie Curie pot to purchase a daffodil to wear; anything makes a huge impact.

Organise an event – Do something within your local community to raise awareness and money for Marie Curie. You can be as creative as you want; organise a bike ride, an event, take part in a run or you can find what’s going on in your local area on their website.

Donate to Charity Shops – For all the bargain hunters who love to shop, you can visit a local Marie Curie charity shop and anything you spend within the shop is donated to the great services they provide to people who need it most. If you’re thinking of having a spring clean, then why not drop off anything you no longer need into your local charity shop? By donating a few pre-loved items, you can help fund crucial nursing care.

Volunteering – Become a volunteer for Marie Curie where you can join thousands of people who donate their time, skills and enthusiasm to support people living with terminal illnesses and their families. Without volunteers, Marie Curie would not be able to deliver the range of services and support that they do.
