‘Tis the Season to be Pink!

At The Sourcing Team offices, we are turning our world pink! In the last few days, we have been busy sourcing fabulous seasonal products to put into our Pink Hamper. The reason for all this hive of activity? It is that time of year again – our latest and exciting product catalogue 2015/2016  has just landed on our desks.

We believe it is our best ever. It is simply bursting with smart, innovative and covetable promotional products that are right for the environment, right for your business and right for your customers.

We wanted to launch the catalogue with a feel good impact, as that is what we believe our promotional products do for you – they keep your brand alive with your customers, imparting memorability and a feel good factor that lasts.

The new catalogue is the culmination of a lot of work carried out behind the scenes throughout the year. We visit international and local fairs and trade exhibitions, examining trends and testing new products and concepts. We speak to trusted suppliers, who mirror our principles and values. We ask for and listen to feedback from you, our clients, and the recipients of our promotional products. We participate in industry-wide activities, and actively drive innovation and leadership in the industry as a whole. Many of our products are sustainable and can be recycled. So apart from painting the town pink, we are also very, very green. As you can see, we truly believe in what we do and the impact of our promotional products.

We love working with large multinationals as much as we love dealing with smaller, local companies. Charities are our specialty, while businesses across MICE, hospitality, financial, professional, retail and manufacturing are our focus.

We know we set the bar in terms of quality and expectation. Our transparent sourcing process means our products are all authentically and ethically sourced. We work with you all the way to provide you with the right promotional products. We have quite unique skills and expertise in creating bespoke premiums for global brands and managing the whole process from concept through to delivery. When engaged, we become an extension of your team, expanding on your brief, providing you with direction on trends and giving you advice on promotional products that fit your brand and your messages.

Some of this year’s favourite items were:

  • Our Cross tech ball pen with stylus – a classically styled, fashionable exclusive ballpoint pen with a narrow 6mm precision stylus tip that is perfect for capacitive touch screen devices such as tablets and smartphones, beautifully packaged in premium gift box, complete with a lifetime mechanical guarantee.
  • The SILLYTUBE power banks, powerful and light weight power banks with a 2600mAh battery that fits easily in your pocket, extending your phone battery when out and about.
  • Modern classic-look felt courier bags with adjustable shoulder straps and velcro fastenings.
  • Accent notebooks with contrast elastic straps, edge stitching and edge stained paper and page marker in luxury leather look PU.

We are confident that our new range inspires and continues to deliver the quality and brand equity you expect from promotional products.
