Purple Moon Promotional Products Limited was founded in 2008 and we have over 40 years of experience in the promotional merchandise industry, working with an extensive variety of sectors and industries. With thousands of promotional gifts available, our range of branded merchandise includes bags, pens, clothing, drinkware, notebooks, eco-friendly products, and so much more. We have everything you need for all occasions, including giveaway gifts for clients or gifts for employees in the office. Whatever your budget, the event or theme, we have something to suit you.
We work hard to build long-lasting relationships with our clients and supply them with well-considered promotional merchandise to help boost sales and increase brand recognition. Following consistently successful marketing campaigns, it’s no wonder that our valued clients return year after year! Even in the fast-paced digital age, promotional products and branded merchandise remain an impactful and powerful draw for customers across so many industries.
Promotional gifts are still cited as having one of the highest forms of advertising and reach, but don’t take our word for it! According to BPMA research, 79% of recipients felt appreciated when receiving branded products, and 21% were impressed. What’s more, 4 out of 5 promotional gift recipients could recall the company name branded on an item, even 12 months after receiving it! Most recipients also kept their promotional products well beyond this.
The same research also states that 50% of recipients deem usefulness as the most important quality of the promotional gift. Fortunately, printed merchandise isn’t just there to be pretty, as so many gifts offer beneficial functionality, such as calendar pods, travel mugs, umbrellas, keyrings, and a lot more.
The benefits of promotional products aren’t limited to clients alone though. In fact, 37% of organisations use advertising gifts as sales incentives, whilst 27% use them to increase employee engagement.
It needn’t stop there, as the power of corporate gifts also extends to clothing and accessories. Promotional clothing such as printed t-shirts and polo shirts are often cited as strengthening company cultures, making your colleagues feel valuable and portraying professionalism. They can also help to promote your business whilst out at trade shows and exhibitions; places where it is vital to make your brand stand out.
We also have an extensive corporate merchandise range, including our gifts packs, power banks and Parker Pens. If you require branded accessories to assist with security or department differentiation, then try our printed lanyards, event wristbands and name badges.
We are passionate about the work we do and the customer service we deliver. Whether you are looking for functional, practical promotional items such as conference folders, memo blocks and highlighters or a more bespoke merchandise solution – which is unique to your business, we will have the perfect products to suit.
Purple Moon will gladly assist you with the design of your branded merchandise, just send over a short brief, your budget and we’ll do the rest for you! We use various branding methods, such as screen printing, digital printing, laser engraving, heat transfer, embroidery and many more. Therefore we can work with an existing design or help you design a new one from scratch, it’s entirely up to you!
Without doubt, trade shows and exhibitions offer fantastic opportunities to enhance your brand and showcase your latest products and services. With promotional gifts, you can drive awareness and brand recognition long after the event has ended. When attendees use or display your merchandise, you reinforce your brand in their minds, so they are more likely to seek out your services in the long run.
From eco pens and mints, to desktop gifts and cotton shoppers. We stock a fantastic range of exhibition freebies and promotional items that are perfect for distributing at any corporate event such as product launches and trade-shows.
It all starts with some careful planning and a little creativity. Why not reach out to existing clients before an event, by inviting them to collect a thank you gift? You could also connect with visitors on the day – by handing out flyers redeemable for free gifts when visiting your stand. If all else fails – entice them with promotional sweets and chocolate!
Although a table full of promotional giveaways won’t guarantee everyone will visit your stand, it will undoubtedly increase your odds. Let’s face it – who can resist grabbing a freebie?
Looking to increase awareness for your chosen charity or corporate fundraising events? Perhaps you require children’s gifts for your sports club or school leavers? Our range of tried and tested products work equally well as traditional promotional giveaways or point-of-sale items.

From printed mugs and sports bottles to branded hoodies and drawstring bags – these popular fundraising items can be branded from stock in just days, even on bulk orders. So Purple Moon has got you covered and can provide you with the gifts you need to raise that all important awareness.
If you have a slightly longer lead time, we can produce bespoke promotional merchandise based on your designs and brand guidelines.

Corporate gifts have certainly evolved since we were founded back in 2008. That’s why we constantly review our vast product range – making sure that we are always offering the latest items to our customers.

Traditional recognition gifts will always have their place, though, such as engraved Cross pens, executive keyrings, and crystal awards. These gifts haven’t stood still either, so we offer the latest designs and colours – which can include plain or branded gift packaging. You can also personalise your promotional gifts to suit the individual employee or create corporate gift packs.
If you require something slightly different or truly unique, we’ve got that covered too. Show your employees you care and boost office morale with unique branded merchandise. It will help create cohesion throughout your business and make everyone feel like part of the team with branded clothing or other promotional gifts.

Let’s be honest, everybody loves a freebie! Branded merchandise can also be sold by charities, schools and clubs to raise essential funds and awareness. You can view a selection of our popular fundraising products online.

We want every client to enjoy an efficient and stress-free buying experience. Please peruse our Order Process page to learn more.
Can we see samples before we buy?
We always suggest ordering a sample before committing to an order. We offer free sample support within reason and only charge for more expensive samples.
How do you brand promotional products?
Depending on the product, we can use various techniques when we apply a logo or other artwork. When branding promotional clothing, for example, we regularly screen print, transfer print and embroider. In comparison, for promotional mugs, we can dye-sublimate, transfer and even sand-blast!
What are your best selling promotional items?
Our promotional products constantly evolve, and popular items are sometimes trend-driven or seasonal. If we had to select a branded merchandise top 10, though, it would currently be (in no particular order):
Do you offer eco-friendly products?
At Purple Moon, we’re proud of our collection of eco-friendly promotional gifts to address your environmental concerns and enhance your eco-friendly credentials. We strive to be as eco-friendly as possible, which is why we are always increasing our range of both eco-friendly and UK manufactured promotional products. From eco-friendly pens and notebooks to bamboo take-out mugs and eco trolley keyrings, we’ve got it all.
Can you create custom promotional products?
Yes, we can! It’s one of our specialities. Many of our clients have very specific requirements, and we pride ourselves on fulfilling all of them. You can request a customised product or fully bespoke merchandise, meaning you can tweak an existing item or create a brand new one – it’s up to you.
What is your turnaround time for promotional merchandise?
Our turnaround time is above the industry average across all categories – thanks to our efficient processes, working relationships and dedication to customer service.
It’s all dependent on product type, quantity, branding method and product origin. For example, printed cotton shoppers and other printed bags can be delivered in just a few days, whereas it might take around three weeks to manufacture lapel pin badges and silicone wristbands in the Far East.
Do you offer express printed promotional products?
Yes – many of our clients rely on us for this invaluable service. In fact, we’re always ‘pulling rabbits out of hats! We’ve supplied everything from printed t-shirts and plastic pens to dye-sublimation mugs and lanyards in just 24-72hrs! What’s more, we don’t pass on unnecessary costs.
What format do you require artwork in?
You can learn more about this in our artwork guidelines section. If you don’t have suitable artwork for your design, we can provide an artwork re-draw service.
Can I place a small order?
As a general rule of thumb, there are minimum order quantities (MOQs) for every promotional product. This is due to the time involved, cost, production schedules and even packaging requirements. However, we aim to offer our clients flexibility, so we will accommodate smaller orders where possible. Please contact us with your requirements.
Do you off bulk discounts?
Our prices are always very competitive, but we can usually offer further discounts for larger orders. This applies to multi-item orders or a single item ordered in bulk. We’ll also price beat or price match like for like quotes if possible.
I’m a reseller, can you help?
We work with many promotional merchandise resellers, including marketing agencies, event organisers, web designers, print companies and retailers. As an established and large distributor, we’re able to purchase at favourable prices, which we pass on to both clients and resellers.
Can we see a catalogue of your promotional gifts? In line with our commitment to being more eco-friendly, we ceased distributing our printed product catalogue in 2010. You can peruse our best-selling promotional products online, and unlike catalogues, our website is frequently updated with new products.
