Customised Socks Provide Corporate Warmth for All Seasons

Socks are an essential part of any outfit, and they can also be a fun way to show off your personal style or the brand you represent. Company branded logo socks are a unique and trendy way to promote your business or organisation. In this article, we will take a closer look at the benefits of branded socks and how they can be used as a powerful marketing tool.

First and foremost, branded socks are a great way to increase brand awareness. By putting your logo on a pair of socks, you can turn your feet into a walking billboard for your company. People notice socks, especially when they have a unique or eye-catching design. Whether your employees are wearing them around the office or you are giving them away as promotional items, branded socks are a great way to get your brand noticed.

Secondly, branded socks can help build team spirit and unity among employees. When everyone is wearing the same socks with the company logo on them, it creates a sense of camaraderie and belonging. It is a small but effective way to show that you are all part of the same team, working towards a common goal. Additionally, employees will appreciate the thought and effort that goes into providing branded socks as a company branded gift.

Thirdly, branded socks make great gifts and giveaways. Everyone loves getting free stuff, especially when it is something practical and useful like a pair of socks. Branded socks can be given away at trade shows, conferences, and other events to promote your business and attract new customers.

They are also a great gift to give to clients, partners, or employees during holiday periods or as a token of company appreciation.

Finally, branded socks can be a fun and creative way to express your company’s personality and values. Your logo does not have to be the only design on the socks; you can incorporate other elements such as colours, patterns, or slogans to create a unique and memorable design. For example, a tech company might have socks with circuit board patterns, while a coffee shop might have socks with coffee beans or mugs on them. The possibilities are endless and endlessly fun!

In conclusion, company branded logo socks are a fun and practical way to promote your business, build team spirit, and give out memorable corporate clothing gifts. They are a unique and effective marketing tool that can help increase brand awareness and make a lasting impression on customers, employees, and partners. So why not put your best foot forward and invest in some branded socks today – contact a member of Illuminated Promotions today to find out about all your options!

promotional clothing iqoniq

Promotional Branded Organic Clothing Range

At Illuminated Promotions, we are committed to provide all customers – existing regulars and new additions – with the most up-to-date advice on promotional merchandise trends and new developments as soon as they become available. With that in mind and with the benefit of maintaining key personal relationships with the major players in the industry, we are excited to be able to announce an important development in the field of promotional branded clothing, new for 2023.

Iqoniq Promotional Merchandise Clothing Range

We are excited for all customers to meet Iqoniq – a new promotional clothing brand that does not actually claim to be eco friendly or sustainable but prefers to be honest about how the products are made and the materials used within their manufacture. Launched within the past couple of weeks and now available for customers across the UK & Europe, the Iqoniq range blends organic and recycled cotton to create a quality branded promotional clothing range in a rich array of vibrant colours which are sure to be an immediate success with instant high demand.

Whatever the company calendar lays out for 2023 – one thing is for sure and that is that you need to go green Green GREEN! Eco promotional products and responsible sustainable material corporate merchandise is the must have for now and for the future. This need not limit your choices and in fact, it will expand the scope and scale of opportunities to create a lasting impression for all company requirements throughout the year ahead. From branded company logo notebooks to embroidered caps, beanie hats and clothing to printed company logo umbrellas and the very latest in branded logo tech and gadgets, there are superb eco material and sustainable product options to choose from. We love bamboo products from engraved power banks to pens and speakers and watch out for the ever-expanding list of organic cotton clothing options available to choose from. A big favourite of our team is also the Impact AWARE™  selection of bags and clothing and including laptop sleeves, tote bags and blankets with an excellent new range of clothing options which will not only showcase your logo but also display your corporate responsibility.

 

Illuminated Promotions Top Tip: Shout your eco credentials with pride and let your customers know that you are a leader in corporate responsibility. Using AWARE™ tracer you can validate the genuine use of recycled materials. Using the example of an Impact AWARE™ laptop backpack: Each bag saves 19.6 litres of water and has reused 32.9 0.5L PET bottles. 2% of proceeds of each Impact product sold will be donated to Water.org.

Corporate Clothing - 100% cotton

The new corporate clothing brand – Iqoniq – uses 50% recycled cotton in all its clothing. To then ensure the very highest quality and durability of each product within the Iqoniq range, the remaining 50% comes from new organic cotton sources. This exciting new clothing blend creates a durable and strong yarn that is long lasting and comfortable to the touch – at Illuminated Promotions we know this to be true having visited the manufacturers and touch-tested the clothing on offer and we are sure our customers will agree – why not get in touch with a member of the team to request further details and give it a try with an order of samples to get you started.

 

The Iqoniq promotional merchandise brand’s only claim is to be as transparent as possible in the way it produces it’s quality apparel range, so that all interested customers can make a better decision. So that means you only wear what you can believe in.

Promotional T Shirts, Corporate Branded Polo Shirts & Embroidered Hoodies

At launch, the Iqoniq brand collection contains some of the most popular areas of corporate clothing choices which generate a substantial proportion of the industry’s total orders volume. Comprising high quality t shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, crew neck sweaters and joggers, we firmly believe that Iqoniq corporate clothing is hitting all the key notes for company branded clothing demand at launch.

 

Screen print your company logo or using state of the art embroidery facilities to expertly embroider a company logo on this superb range of sustainable cotton clothing to create an image that is built to last over the years.

Corporate Clothing For Company Staff Use

With high quality materials and a combination of the right corporate message with excellent garment styling and attention to detail, we think the Iqoniq range is the perfect choice for companies looking to refresh their company branded clothing for staff use. Ideal to brand your logo on t shirts and polo shirts either via print or embroidery, Iqoniq clothing will proudly display your corporate image with a touch of quality and class that will clearly convey the best possible image for both your staff to wear and for all those who see the clothing modelled in the office, on the move and at company event locations.

Promotional Branded Clothing For Exhibition Giveaways

Fingers crossed that moving on from a busy real-life working environment in 2022 and into 2023 have shown us that a post Covid world is possible – whisper it, don’t shout! In that regard, the Iqoniq range of corporate clothing looks ideal for company branded clothing to accompany your collection of promotional gifts and giveaways for use on the exhibition circuit throughout the year ahead.

We feel that a 100% cotton company logo printed t shirt from Iqoniq will send out a particularly strong brand message and convey a corporate image to help with a product launch or merely to help as a giveaway corporate gift at your exhibition stand when reuniting with existing customers, or in greeting those new arrivals to your brand.

Proud Members of BPMA Step Forward Pledge

As part of our continued drive to source and support true green and ecological product sourcing for all our customers’, Illuminated Promotions are also proud members of the Step Forward Pledge network – as organised by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA).

As the global fight against climate change intensifies, businesses and consumers are paying greater attention to their environmental impact. According to a 2022 Global Sustainability Survey, 56% of UK consumers rank sustainability as a top five value driver. And, in the coming years, that number is only expected to grow.

 

Environmental, Social and Governance (or ESG) efforts are crucial in delivering tangible, long-term benefits and business growth. We are committed in partnership with the BPMA to increase our knowledge and understanding of the environmental impact within the industry in which we work and have pledged to continually increase an update our knowledge, understanding and customer communication in relation to these issues on an ongoing basis.

 

To summarise the real effect this will have on our customers and products choices, please see below:

  • Procure and supply an increasingly greater percentage of recycled and/or sustainably sourced products
  • Ensure an increasing number of products are packaged in materials that can be sustainably sourced and easily recycled
  • Make sustainability claims easily verifiable so that consumers can trust the marketing messages they are presented with.

This is a work in progress and a commitment to greater understand and learning as part of our journey.

We also pledge to keep our customers updated about our journey over time and ask for all readers to stay tuned to our regular News updates for further information.

Eco Promotional Products – A Buyer’s Guide

Choosing the correct promotional product or bundle of corporate marketing gifts for your next company exhibition presence, your next trade show or simply to re-stock the corporate marketing merchandise store cupboard can be a time-consuming and potentially arduous task. Added to the potential for complication is the growing need to represent the company or organisation brand with an eco-focus and it could seem from the outset that the task has become even greater. However, at Illuminated Promotions, we are here to show customers – old and welcome new partners – that eco promotional marketing offerings can be wide and varied in concert with a very attractive range of choices to cover all the main areas associated with the wealth of marketing promotional products in general.

In this guide, we hope to break things down into a step-by-step process to make the decision-making process less daunting and show that there is a wealth of opportunity and choice to make clear and attractive product selections. We aim to demonstrate that you will not only showcase your brand and marketing message but also give assurance that the correct messages are understood in the eyes of your customers and staff in relation to the part we all must play towards a greener, more sustainable earth and future for all generations to follow.

Sustainable Merchandise – Know Your Budget

Does this sound like an obvious statement to make!? From experience, the team at Illuminated Promotions have had some awkward conversations with customers from time to time over the years when the figures just don’t add up!

Please remember we need to factor in all costs when it comes to providing a quote and going on to produce an order for our customers. Our web site costs offer as much guidance as is possible to give and we will give guide pricing per unit with price break discount offers at certain volumes of promotional merchandise but remember that we need to work out delivery requirements, whether this may be one address drop in the UK, multiple drops to multiple locations and maybe even international deliveries to various event locations. We are always delighted to arrange all of these scenarios for our customers but we need our customers to be aware that the more logistical layers we add per product order, the more likely this will have an effect on the overall customer job cost. On a similar note, our prices will act as a guide for each product with a one colour printed or decorated company logo, however – for some orders – we are asked to create a series of branding messages using a series of logos and this will also influence the price per unit per product offering and we really prefer our customer base to be armed with this information in advance.

Illuminated Promotions Top Tip: Sustainable promotional merchandise is an exciting on-message area of corporate gifting and we recommend asking a member of our team just to clarify that you have an idea for a certain budget across a selection of product areas. Let us take some of the strain of working out the figures for you and helping with your marketing budget planning with our industry product market experience and expertise to guide you every step of the way. We will make sure the figures all add up to an eco branding success story for your organisation.

Eco-Friendly Merchandise – Identify Your Audience

So, your budget is all set and you’re good to go with moving things forward with your eco promotional merchandise campaign requirements. Next stop is to identify your target audience but what do we mean by that? In the simplest terms, it is not now the time to flip through the pages of our catalogue, website or promo e-flyers and simply collate items that catch your eye whilst keeping a tally on the budget figures – it is time to take a step back to consider what the products required are being used for, who are the recipients and what will be the best use of your company’s hard-earned marketing budget for this campaign.

To break it down further, are the recipients internal (company employees) or external (customers)? Is the intended audience mostly male / female or an equal mix? Are these eco promotional products intended for new or existing company contacts? Is there is an age profile that can accurately be targeted, or are these eco marketing products based for a wide range of ages and profiles? Are there any further areas that we can look at to consider relevance in identifying the audience we will be reaching? University fairs for example are a common area of promotional merchandise targeting which will commonly reach a younger more tech savvy audience who are statistically more likely to be receptive to products geared towards an active lifestyle.

Illuminated Promotions Top Tip: Pay some time internally to think about your eco-friendly merchandise recipient audience and talk this through with members of your own team first. Alternatively, drop us a line to put some ideas forward and ask our opinion – not only will we be receptive to your queries or concerns but we will always act impartially and give best advice based on years of experience with guiding and helping hundreds of other clients.

Eco-Friendly Marketing Products – Select Eco Promotional Product Areas

Audience identified? Tick! Right, let’s move things forward with your eco-friendly marketing product or products selection for your marketing campaign. Having clarity in terms of the audience we are to reach is a massive leap forward, so progress is being made but it is time to narrow things down further… You’ve decided that tech products to reach a younger career-focused urban dwelling audience is the way to go with this campaign – excellent! But there is a need to keep things green and create not just the right impression for your brand but also a buzz in the eyes and hands of the recipient and with a product that is definitely on-message with eco credentials. Recycled product materials tick a lot of boxes in this area and can be supplied with confidence in virtually every product area from promotional branded powerbanks to branded multi-chargers, corporate bags to promotional flasks, company branded notebooks to promotional umbrellas and so much much more – there are a wealth of high quality recycled material company branded eco-friendly marketing products at your disposal and we are delighted to be able to talk you through some of the choices available to all customers. Illuminated Promotions Top Tip: We love bamboo! Everybody loves bamboo – a strong statement to make, but we think that bamboo offers a perfect combination of eco-friendly marketing product material and an exceptional green building material. It is a sustainable material that requires significantly less energy to grow and develop, acts against soil erosion, can supply biofuel, extends wildlife refuge areas, and is exceptional in the manufacture of eye-catching, superb quality and durable eco-friendly marketing products.

Eco Corporate Gifts – Identify Specific Product Choices

We are getting there! Some further factors to consider at this stage: If there is a venue for your exhibition or event, do we have storage availability before or during the event? So, do we have a definite idea of the amount of space we have to store our eco corporate gifts for this particular campaign? Also, have you considered the delegates or recipients who will be receiving your eco promotional gifts? Do we need to consider eco-friendly branded bags to help your customers take the products away? And in terms of transport of your eco-friendly corporate merchandise, it might be advisable to ask a member of the Illuminated Promotions team to help you clarify the space per box or pallet that your campaign merchandise is going to take and the wight per box or unit. At this stage we really want to identify if there are any areas of concern that need to be addressed to make sure that on the day, or over the course of the event, we have all planning in place to make sure that your event is set to be a smooth-running success!

Illuminated Promotions Top Tip: Take a little time to put yourself in the shoes of your delegates or event and exhibition guests. Choosing the correct eco corporate gift or gifts is about the best choice for the audience and the environment and space at your disposal at the time. Perfect planning makes for perfect results!

Eco Promotional Products – Clarify Your Marketing Message

We are ready to push the button and confirm the order with Illuminated Promotions! Company logo is to hand, eco promotional products have been identified as perfect for this campaign event and our planning is all in place in terms of logistics, transport and for the team in place on the big day/s – excitement and anticipation is building…

Have you considered tailoring your marketing message as bespoke for the event, for the audience, or even as bespoke for the eco promotional products you will be giving away? Promotional eco products can be as wide and varied as the imagination allows, so is this not the ideal time to consider your marketing message also? Certain products will lend themselves towards the adding of a strapline to reinforce the company logo or your event’s key objectives. Adding an event date or a recipient name as part of your promotional branding can further tailor your message to create a longer-lasting appeal for a successful corporate branding marketing event.

Illuminated Promotions Top Tip: We speak to customers at all times about tweaking and amending their message to suit a certain event or campaign audience – why not ask us for our opinion and run your ideas by our experienced team for the best advice we have to hand to meet your campaign specific objectives? Let’s work together to ensure that your next eco promotional products marketing campaign ticks all of the boxes and creates the best achievable result for your brand.
