Places to Distribute Your Branded Pens


Branded pens are commonly used as a marketing tool because they are easy to design and are cheaper than other forms of marketing. They are also easy to distribute and are functional. Here some of the places where you should distribute your branded pens:

Your company headquarters

Start from within. Disseminate the branded pens in your offices or branches. Remember that branded pens are not only promotional materials as they may also serve as rewards for your loyal clients or outstanding employees. You may offer a pen during a transaction, especially when a client is about to sign or complete some forms and ask him/her to keep it. You may also offer the branded pens to people who are just enquiring about your services, so that they may remember your company even after they have left.

Trade fairs

One of the best places (or events) to distribute your branded pens is in an event that allows entrepreneurs to showcase their products and services. Usually, people who go to these events are interested in the theme of the event, which means that there is a great possibility that they could be your future clients. You must also try to converse or greet the client when giving out the branded pens. That way, they will be able to incorporate a good impression of your brand.


This is the part of the city where you are able to see people from different walks of life which means your marketing strategy will be able to reach a wide range of demographics. Of course, being able to reach various people could open up a lot of opportunities for your company. You may consider installing a small post similar to trade fairs. If there are certain restrictions on marketing material distribution in the city, coordinate with local authorities and comply with their requirements.

Micromagnetics offers branded promotional products that come in various forms. You may choose from branded pens, calendar cards, magnets, key rings, clothing and more. If you are interested in our promotional products, please call 01993 773350… It would be good to talk with you.

Reasons Why Branded Pens are Popular Promotional Materials


Companies tend to try unconventional marketing tools because of the evolving market trend but nothing really beats the classic promotional materials such as branded pens. They are commonly used to promote brands, organisations and companies for the following reasons:

Branded pens are useful.
A company can establish their brand by giving potential customers something that they can actually use every day. Pens are commonly used in offices, schools, restaurants, banks, etc. This means that the exposure they can secure will go a long way. Everybody uses pens – students, executives, professionals and even kids. Determine your target market before choosing the type of branded pen to use for your promotion. There are branded pens that are designed for global use, while others are designed specifically for executives and professionals. Choose the former if your target market is the general public.

Branded pens are easy to design.
Branded pens come in various designs, sizes and colours. Choose the type of branded pen that will reflect on the nature of your business. If the target market of your company is teens, choose colourful branded pens. On the other hand, if the target market of your company is professionals, choose black or silver covered pens. The company logo can also be printed on the pen, together with the contact details of the company or organisation. The tag line of your company can also be printed to grab the attention of potential customers.

Branded pens are handy.
Pens can be brought easily because of their size. They can fit almost everywhere including backpacks, handbags, sling bags, small purses, etc. They are good promotional materials because they can be carried anywhere and at any time. This means more exposure for the brand, organisation or company that is being promoted.

Branded pens are better than other promotional materials.
A branded pen is a smarter choice than leaflets and brochures. Although leaflets and brochures are very informative, pens are a longer serving and more effective promotional material. They can be used on a daily basis and branded pens are much cheaper than advertising on television, radio, in a newspaper, etc.

Micromagnetics offers a variety of high-quality branded pens with stylish designs. We also offer other promotional products such as branded mugs, branded key rings and bags. Please call 01993 773350 or send us an e-mail at with any enquiries.

Why Branded Keyrings are an Effective Promotional Tool

Companies can’t simply rely on print, broadcast and online advertisements. Using promotional products like branded keyrings to capture the attention of their target audience, they can be distributed at company events or used as giveaways to their employees. When choosing a promotional product, you should consider your options carefully: the cost, usability, durability, etc. If you are looking for an effective promotional tool, a branded keyring would make the perfect choice.

1. Useable

Keyrings are very usable and an effective way to promote your company.

Some people even hang them on the zip of their bag.

  2. Low Cost

Branded keyrings are very affordable. In fact the price of 100 to 999 keyrings ranges from £35 up to £1,500. The cost would depend on the quantity and the style of the keyring that you choose. Hence, you can buy more branded products and disseminate them to more people.

     3. Encourage Creativity

Keyrings are usually transparent. They provide a space for printed promotional details about the company. Encouraging companies to be more creative with the picture and information that they include, this will help to grab the attention and interest of the target audience.

 4. Variety

Micromagnetics offers different kinds of keyrings to choose from. Be creative and design your own, with printed company details and the company logo.

Celebrating your Company’s Anniversary

company anniversary

One of the best times of the year to make your brand the talk of the town is the company’s anniversary. Welcome another prosperous year for your company through using very effective promotional materials along with the usual advertisements. How could it be beneficial for your business? Read on and continue your company’s success for years to come.

Making the anniversary viral increases brand awareness.

Giving people different promotional materials that say something about the company’s anniversary increases brand awareness and establishes the brand’s credibility. People who are neither users nor buyers of your products or those who have not yet taken you up on any of your services will begin to realise that they can trust your company. Through your years of experience within the industry you will have established yourself within your market sector. By making the anniversary of your enterprise viral you could also attract other companies to partner with you. It could also get the attention of the media who could feature your celebration, offering free advertising in the process.

Looking for the most effective promotional material ideas?

The right kind of promotional products are essential to make your aim of increasing the brand’s market successful. The best promotional material ideas are those that cater to your target audience. If your market is anyone and everyone, choose handy and functional things that are generally used by everyone. Some of the most effective promotional tools include branded pens, bags, mugs, fridge magnets, desktop items and posters (placed in public places).

Let the public do the work for you.

Believe it or not, these promotional products will work wonders for your company in the long run. As we all know, people love taking pictures and uploading them to their social media accounts. Even if only 10 people upload one of your branded materials, the information about the company’s anniversary will be spread far and wide. Word of mouth will then play its crucial part and brand awareness will be achieved.
