PromoMate® and Markie® by Premier Impressions, the trade alternative to Paper Mate and Sharpie.

2014 was a transitional year for both Premier and their customers, following the decision by Newell Rubbermaid to withdraw the supply of both Paper Mate and Sharpie brands from the European Promotional Gift market.

Premier Impressions have launched PromoMate® and Markie® as a suitable trade alternative, which provides quality, flexibility and value for money, plus you can enjoy Premier Impressions great customer services levels.

PromoMate® incorporates three designs, Curve® and Element® Ball Pens and PromoGrip® Gel pens, in a range of 21 colours, something to suit most corporate identities. With generous branding areas and Premier Impressions expertise, these ranges can be printed on-site in up to five spot colours and they can respond to the fastest lead time requests.

Markie® is a range of permanent markers, which write on glass, foil, metal and plastic. Markie®, can also be branded in-house up to five spot colours and delivered very quickly.

MD, Alan Stride said “Having supplied wholesale pens to the trade and adapted our business model accordingly, it was crucial for Premier to source our own pen range. We carried out extensive research and testing over the last 18 months and identified that there is definitely a requirement in the market for another quality brand. We are confident PromoMate® & Markie® will be brands to watch.”

All models and colours are in stock. Take a look at the new Premier Brands catalogue.
