Pen Warehouse Supports KidsOut Day

Rotary Club KidsOut Day

We regularly support our local Rotary club and were pleased to be invited to attend this year’s KidsOut Day. This fantastic event is organised by the KidsOut charity in conjunction with over 600 Rotary Clubs throughout the UK. The aim is to bring some happiness to the lives of disadvantaged children, giving over 29,000 kids the chance to have a fun day out.

Our Amanda Deallie and Grace Mitchell visited the event held at Aldershot Rugby Club and organised by 10 local Rotary clubs. This fun-packed day featured face painting, a bouncy castle and a petting zoo. Amanda and Grace even let the kids have a go.

Other activities included a barbeque, balloon race and a disco. For many of the children is was the first time they had experienced such things and rare opportunity to forget about disability, poverty and abuse.

Amanda Deallie said “the Aldershot KidsOut Day was a huge success, with over 700 children getting the chance to take part in a variety of activities. It was fantastic seeing so many kids enjoying themselves and The Pen Warehouse are proud to play a small part in supporting our local Rotary club.”

Advantage Supplier Award

Pen Warehouse Win Advantage Supplier of the Year 2017

We are delighted to have won Supplier of the Year at the recent Advantage Catalogue Group awards. A dinner was held at the Sopwell House Hotel in Hertfordshire on 3rd July 2017 to celebrate the launch of the latest Advantage catalogue and to recognise the group’s key contributors. The Pen Warehouse were voted the top supplier by group members.

Sales Managers Sophie Kelembeck and Nick Clewlow were pleased to accept the award on behalf of the company. Sophie said: “We were absolutely thrilled to receive this award. Having been nominated in previous years, to win it this time is testament to the hard work of our colleagues. We would like to thank all the Advantage group members who have taken the time to vote for us this year.”

This latest award complements our recent PAGE Gold Supplier Award. Click here for details.

Overwrapping on pen boxes

New Overwrapping Service Available

We’ve invested in new overwrapping machinery to offer a smart finishing touch to our pen boxes. When any of our executive ballpens, rollerballs or fountain pens are ordered in a presentation box, there is now the option of applying a clear cellophane wrapping to that box.

Not only does this protect the surface from scratches, it gives the product a retail-style appearance. It’s a cost-effective way to add to the perceived value of a promotional gift; it’s ideal for distributors wanting to sell to corporate clients as it gives the impression they are receiving a retail product rather than a promotional giveaway.

Clear cellophane wrapping is available today, with branded wrapping for our Pierre Cardin writing gifts coming soon.

Call 01252 400 270 or email sales@pens.co.uk for more details. Or click here to view our range of executive metal pens.

Colour Printed Metal Pen

Full Colour Digital Printing Now Available on Soft-Feel Metal Pens

Although soft-feel aluminium pens are growing in popularity, laser engraving alone as a method for branding is proving to have limited appeal.

As a result of six months of intensive research and development, we are pleased to announce we have developed a system to print full colour onto soft-feel rubberised aluminium pens.

The range currently comprises five such pens, including the Electra Classic LT Soft Ballpen, available in an array of light colours, and the Electra Soft Touch Ballpen, with a handy touchscreen stylus. Each benefits from the soft-feel rubberised barrel to give a pleasurable writing experience. These pens are ideal for laser engraving, with the aluminium base metal revealed to give a pleasing aesthetic, but digital printing now offers a whole new world of branding options.

The Electra Soft Touch Ballpen range is available on a 5-day standard lead time with digital printing.

For more information, contact sales@pens.co.uk or call 01252 400 270.

Engraved Electra Classic Ballpen

Free Setup and Free Carriage on Electra Classic Ballpen

We understand that promotional product distributors work with tight margins, so our new Electra Classic Ballpen and Electra Classic Satin Ballpen are now available with free setup and free carriage.

The free setup and delivery we offer ensures that our Electra Classic range remain ideal promotional pens due to their attractive design, versatility and budget-friendly price point. The Electra Classic Ballpen has a vivid anodised finish available in a wide range of colours, perfect for matching a corporate identity or brand. Whilst, the Electra Classic Satin Ballpen, also available in a range of colours, swaps the anodised coating for an appealing satin finish that creates a higher perceived value.

Both Electra Classic Ballpens can be spot colour printed onto a large branding area, or an alternative laser engraving service is available that reveals the aluminium base metal underneath.

The Electra Classic Ballpen and Electra Classic Satin Ballpen have a 5-day standard lead time, with an incredible 48-hour express service also available.

You can customise your own Electra Classic Ballpen.
