We often see these as large-scale advertising campaigns such as mailers or for small business updates such as new offerings, promotions or business trading changes. Flyers really are one of the most straightforward and easy ways to reach your customers.


PVC-Free Banners:

Due to the often-temporary nature of these banners we’ve decided to offer a PVC-Free option in addition to our standard PVC Banners. Both equally durable and high quality, however eliminating the PVC allows them to be 100% recyclable.

Branded Mugs:

Branded mugs are perfect for a more casual branding approach. They can be given out at events or for that just-arrived-at-the-office cuppa; some would say this makes them an indispensable workplace item.

A top tip to really make the most of your branding is to colour match your mug. We offer all sorts of coloured cores and handles and even colour changing mugs.

Why it’s important: As a practical product you’ll be exposing people to your branding every time they use it, reinforcing your business in their mind. It’s also great to have enough mugs to last the day in busy office environments, there’s always one who needs a new cup every time they get a fresh coffee.
