Hello

It’s the first blog on the new Love Merchandise website so we thought it’s a good time to say hello...

It’s the first blog on the new Love Merchandise website so we thought it’s a good time to say hello and introduce who we are, where we came from, what we stand for and how we can hopefully help you with your promotional products.

Without stating the obvious we sale promotional gifts so nearly anything branded with a logo. Our customers then use the branded items for their marketing including events, onboarding new staff, rewarding existing customers and staff, Xmas gifts and promoting new products and services.

We are based in Mortimer near Reading; Berkshire in the UK and the company was started in 2011 by me Paul and Kelly. I previously had 10 years’ experience working for another company in the promotions industry, so I am now in my 21st year.

In these 21 years I have produced and delivered thousands of promotional gift orders literally across the world from Australia to Dubai, America and of course mainly here in the UK so rest assured I have seen most things and have plenty of experience to help you deliver a successful promotional gift project.

Our company values have helped build trust and regular long standing repeat customers. We are very open for your benefit so will tell you if we think a product, branding or delivery date won’t work and hopefully help provide a better, deliverable solution. We also strongly believe in attention to detail and working in a friendly and efficient manner which basically means being nice and getting back to you quickly with any information you may need – hopefully our existing customers reading this agree!

In terms of the promotional items, we sell we believe different types of products and even different branding methods suit different companies, industries, projects and budgets so we have split our offerings into 3 separate websites:

  • www.lovemerchandise.co.uk - Low-cost promotional merchandise. Useful, colourful, generally screen printed or engraved and ideal for a range of promotional events, onboarding, Xmas gifts and promoting new products and services.
  • www.loveluxurymerchandise.co.uk - Corporate Executive Gifts. Some of our customers who provide high value products and services may need higher value corporate gifts in terms of the material, item, packaging and branding. This is generally higher value gifts delivered in smaller quantities.
  • www.lovebrandedclothing.co.uk - Clothing branded with a company logo. We sale a lot of branded clothing such as printed tees, embroidered polo shirts, jackets, sports clothing and probably our most popular item the branded hoodie.

All 3 divisions are linked, and you may find that sometimes you are putting on a trade show and need a low cost promotional item, sometimes you may be rewarding your best customers with a quality corporate gift and sometimes your team may need some embroidered jackets or hoodies so whatever your needs we look forward to helping you.
