Why Promotional Pens Are So Popular

Branded pens are timeless promotional giveaways

The humble promotional pen is still one of the UK’s most popular promotional products. It has been used as a simple yet effective marketing tool since branding began. More memorable and practical than a business card, the everyday functionality of custom pens will have people reaching for them again and again. This creates more exposure for your business over time, helping you reach potential customers at trade shows and other marketing events.

There are plenty of reasons why businesses still choose promotional pens to raise brand awareness and reach potential customers. Branded pens are affordable, especially if you opt for value plastic pens. Even higher-value items like premium metal pens offer cost-effective ways to spread your brand further and provide increased long-term visibility. When more individuals utilise your promotional pens, the likelihood of leaving a lasting impression increases.

Company logo-printed pens, combined with other promotional gifts are also great for promoting a special offer or big event. If you’re considering buying logo-printed pens in bulk, then our cheapest promotional pens are ideal. When used as a promotional giveaway at high-footfall exhibitions, your logo will be remembered long after the event – helping you achieve maximum impact.

Promotional pens are personal and practical

If you want to thank customers and employees for their loyalty, then promotional pens are ideal and help reinforce relationships. Corporate branded pens like our personalised Parker pens will make a professional impression and will help keep recipients engaged with your business.

As a classic promotional item, pens are a staple giveaway – often passed from desk to desk or person to person, which will work to extend brand recognition beyond the initial touch point and deliver an impressive cost per impression.

The variety of promotional pens is endless

With a range of styles, price points and branding options on offer, the popularity of promotional pens is unwavering. Our extensive range of promotional pens is one of the largest in the UK. We’re able to supply everything from cheap custom-printed pens with full-colour printing, to premium branded metal pens.

A great starting point is our huge range of contours, which are our best-selling promotional pens. They come in a range of finishes, colour options and materials – including eco-friendly wheat. You can even choose between blue or black ink.

If you want to enhance your eco credentials, we also offer a wide range of eco-friendly pens. Our promotional pens also vary in style, from our simple value Espace Extra to our striking Senator Tizio – a truly eye-catching corporate gift.

In many cases, we can also offer a choice of ink colour and branding options. Many of our pens can be printed in vibrant full colour, with express bulk delivery available for your next trade event. If you require a premium finish, we can laser engrave up to 360°.

Promotional pens can be used by anyone

Pens are used by a diverse range of people. All ages, genders and professions will use one – despite the ubiquity of computers and smartphones. As a promotional marketing tool, branded pens are the most popular and quickest way of getting your branding into customers’ hands.

Due to their low cost and small size, they’re the go-to giveaway gift at exhibitions, conferences, and seminars or even a freebie with in-store and online purchases. Pens are also ideal for topping up gift bags and onboarding packs. This works well alongside complementary promotional merchandise like notepads and sticky notes.

If you run a gift shop or work with young children, we also offer colourful highlighters and markers, pencils and crayons. Our best-selling Eco-Friendly Flower Highlighter is both fun and engaging and fits nicely into our printed pencil cases. If you’re tech-savvy, then you might like our range of stylus pens.

Pens can also be thought-provoking and engaging, like our eco-friendly Goa pen. Made from sustainable bamboo, it’s ideal for nurturing a positive brand image with all sorts of audiences. If you fancy something fun or off-beat, consider our range of novelty pens.
