About Us

Your Trade-Only Supplier for Promotional Pens

Welcome to pens.co.uk, the home of promotional pens, pencils and desktop accessories. Our website is designed to be your one-stop-shop for all your printed pen needs, whether you are looking for a low-cost marketing giveaway or a premium corporate reward.

The Pen Warehouse is a strictly trade-only supplier and does not sell to the end-user. We hope that as you look through our incredible selection of products you will appreciate why we have become the trade’s number one supplier for promotional writing instruments. Not only are we the top printed pen supplier in the United Kingdom and Ireland, we offer the widest selection of writing instruments in Europe. Whether you’re looking for low-cost plastic pens, executive rollerballs or printed pencils, pens.co.uk should be your first port of call.

The Pen Warehouse offers industry-beating lead times, with most products dispatched in just five days and with 24-hour, 48-hour and 3-day express services also available. We can offer such fast turnaround thanks to holding extensive stock of all our products, while carrying out all printing and engraving in-house at our Hampshire-based premises.Pen Warehouse Automation

We are proud to boast the fastest auto laser engraving and digital printing machines in the market.

Our flexible production capacity means we can accommodate large or small orders easily, while our friendly and professional Customer Services team are happy to guide you through the product selection process.

Our History

Founded in the late 1970’s by Managing Director Neil Cleere, we were originally a general trade supplier of promotional items, but by the mid-1980’s had become a specialist supplier of printed pens and complementary promotional products, including printed pencils and accessories. Since then we have steadily expanded our range year-on-year to now include over 400 unique products, many designed in-house and so exclusive to The Pen Warehouse. During this growth we have built an enviable reputation for quality and service as a trade-exclusive supplier. Our innovative approach has helped define not only the way promotional pens are design but also marketed, to reflect the demands of today’s discerning purchaser.

Our Philosophy and Ethics

Great service, quality and price are to be expected in today’s competitive market, but we see ourselves as offering far more than these basic prerequisites. We consider our network of trusted distributors to be our partners and hope that they enjoy the experience of working with us as much as we do them. We believe that doing business should be a pleasure for our customers, our dedicated staff and our suppliers alike, and this philosophy is reflected in the way we approach our working relationships.

Ethical sourcing, our impact on the environment and corporate & social responsibility are overriding considerations that influence everything we do, to ensure that long-term sustainability for our society and planet is not compromised by short-term policies.

Our Team

We currently employ around 200 members of staff, covering administration, sales, printing and manufacturing. Many of our shop-floor employees have been with us since we first become involved in pen printing and our policy of ongoing cross-training and our recent apprenticeships scheme have given us a resource that we believe is unequalled in terms of experience and flexibility.

We are an equal opportunities employer and this is reflected in our diverse staff, representing multiple ethnicities, backgrounds and age groups. We are very much a meritocracy where hard work and talent are recognised and rewarded.

Our Community

We are proud to be an integral part of a diverse and culturally-rich local community.

Not only do we enjoy recruiting from the community and contributing to the local economy, we support a number of charities based in Hampshire and Surrey. These include the Aldershot-based Vine Centre, which does and incredible job aiding the homeless, and our local Trussell Trust food bank. We also regularly take part in fundraising initiatives to support national charities.

Our Quality Control

Every writing instrument we source or develop ourselves goes through a stringent period of quality control before we are happy to add it to our range. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure the best materials and manufacturing techniques are used and no corners cut.

This care and attention to detail extends to a range of quality control processes. These include checking all artwork prior to print and advising on changes; checking print quality and durability before we ship anything to your client; and regularly testing the writing length of our refills.

You can rest assured that every care has been taken to ensure your customers receive the best quality printed or engraved product.
