Our Promotional Merchandise Range

Branded PPE for the New Normal – Face Masks, Hand Sanitiser, & Protective Clothing

Our new branded PPE range is designed for your business to adapt to the new normal during the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can browse a range of Branded PPE, face masks, hand sanitiser, protective clothing, antibacterial products, awareness products, thermometers, and more.

Research from the ASI in 2020, suggests that 80% of consumers wear masks most of the time in public, and 39% of consumers already own a logo face mask, making them a valuable marketing opportunity.

Branded Pens & Stationery

Promotional pens are one of the most popular items used by companies, so we have a large range for you to choose from, including plastic pens, metal pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners, stylus pens, eco pens, novelty pens, pen pots, and highlighters.

Our stationery range includes branded sticky notes, paper, stickers, writing equipment, notebooks, branded notepads, diaries, and folders.

We also stock general branded office supplies, desk tidies, and work from home products (which is becoming even more important in 2021) – ideal for branding your Zoom meetings and video conference calls.

You can get calendars to be in front of your clients or customers all year round, as well as novelty desk ideas like stress relievers, and ring binders to help with paperwork.

Branded Sports & Fitness

For encouraging more activity, or simply associating your brand with an active lifestyle, our branded fitness products are perfect.

We have a range of sports specific products such as brandable balls, along with sports bags, and fleeces.

An active lifestyle is a really important brand message right now, so adding your company logo to products around this idea can help boost brand affinity and increase campaign effectiveness.

Promotional Bags

One of our larger ranges is our branded bag range, which are designed to be adaptable to lots of different occasions.

This contains every type of bag you could think of, from low-cost paper bags or carrier bags, to higher-value conference bags, backpacks, tote bags, and laptop bags. It allows people to easily take their conference giveaways or merchandise home with them, and can be used multiple times after the event is over. Our bags are available in a range of different colours, suitable for whatever industry or part of the world you’re marketing to.

Branded Drinkware & Mugs

A branded mug is ideal for both corporate and office workers. Mugs are an office staple, so it makes a lot of sense to invest in printed mugs as part of your merchandising efforts, with the opportunity for your logo to be in front of eyeballs on a daily basis.

Our range also includes sports bottles, travel mugs, and glasses.

Branded Gadgets & Technology

We tend to carry gadgets everywhere with us, making an investment in branded technology items good value for money.

Our range includes tape measures, keyrings, metal keyrings, chargers, ice scrapers, headphones, speakers, USB sticks, phone cases, power banks, phone accessories, torches, tools, clocks, and watches.

Seasonal Merchandise – Christmas, New Year, & Other Holidays

If you want to start a marketing campaign around a seasonal holiday like Christmas, then we can help with that as well. Browse our Christmas merchandise to get some ideas of what you can put together, then contact us for up to date quotes on delivery and prices.

Even a basic novelty item as a corporate Christmas gift could go down a storm with your clients and suppliers, and help them forget about the competition.

Branded Conference, Trade Shows, Exhibitions & Event Giveaways

When you’re scheduling an event, you want all of the proper giveaway items prepared to maximise brand recognition and marketing impact.

They are perfect for lots of different types of events, including trade shows and conferences. Our range of branded exhibition items includes lower price options too, so you can market your business on a budget.

Our range includes printed lanyards, giveaway items, badges, wristbands, food/sweets, balloons, and flags/banners for booths. You can use them in corporate gift boxes too. Including fun items like sunglasses and water bottles can also make your merchandise go further, as people will end up using them regularly.

You’ll also want to pair these with some canvas bags or drawstring bags, to hold all of the extra conference swag.

Branded Clothing, Travel & Outdoor Items

With the typical wet English weather, our range of branded umbrellas, golf umbrellas, and telescopic umbrellas are particularly popular. There are also larger static parasols.

We also offer a range of branded clothing, that’s perfect for business owners and employees, including branded shirts, cotton t-shirts, workwear, hats and caps, polo shirts, jackets, jumpers, ponchos, aprons, gloves, and fleeces.

Bottle openers, trolley coins, and stress toys make up a list of other useful accessories.

Corporate Gifts & Personal Branding

Our products are ideal for use as corporate gifts, helping important employees identify themselves at conferences and trade shows.

They are also appropriate for those looking to start a personal brand, where you can create custom clothing, desk accessories, and backgrounds for video conferencing and production, helping to appear more professional (this is particularly useful when you are just starting out).

Eco-Friendly Promotional Products

We offer a range of eco-friendly promotional products for when you want to align your brand with a modern, green message. This includes reusable items, recycled items, and ethically sourced items.

What is promotional merchandise?

Promotional merchandise (also known as promotional products, branded merchandise, promotional giveaways, promotional gifts, swag, or corporate gifts) is a product that has been branded with a company logo or slogan and then given to customers, employees, or potential clients (usually for free), with the goal of improving brand awareness as part of a larger marketing campaign.

Why choose promotional products?

Companies using branded products for their marketing campaigns tend to improve brand awareness/brand recognition, which should result in more sales and a positive ROI in the long run. This comes through familiarisation with the brand logo/messaging, and sparking conversations about companies in social/work settings, with high-impact results for brand exposure. The BPMA reports that 81% of consumers keep promotional items for at least a year, which means your logo is getting a lot of free exposure.

It can also be a different way to get in front of a new target audience, or convey a new marketing message for a new or existing product launch.

What are the most popular types of printed merchandise?

The most popular types of branded merchandise, as reported by the ASI in 2019, are:

  • Writing instruments
  • Drinkware
  • T-shirts
  • Bags
  • Headwear
  • Outerwear
  • Polo shirts
  • Desk accessories
  • Calendars
  • Usb drives
  • Umbrellas
  • Mobile power banks.

Can you print my company logo on your products?

Yes, all products are designed to have your full-colour company logo printed on them, to then be distributed as advertising products. This will be done in the artwork part of the order process.

I've been working with Steel City since the early 00's when I worked in Sheffield. Twenty plus years later and a move down south, I've taken them with me where ever my job has taken me because I always know they can be relied upon and that the products they provide are excellent quality. Todays order is new uniform for our samples department. Not only was the speed and efficiency of the order process exceptional, I now have a very happy team all branded in beautiful workwear. Thanks guys!
