The Pen Warehouse has made a winning start to the year with the award for Supplier of the Year (£2m and over) at the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA) Awards dinner.

The UK’s leading supplier of promotional writing instruments also picked up the Constant Contact Digital Awards Website of The Year 2014 for its innovative No-Minimum bespoke Ecommerce website.

The No-Minimum bespoke Ecommerce site gives distributors the opportunity to increase revenue by selling small order personalised products and gifts online to consumers, sole traders, franchisees and small businesses. Competitive prices for products allow distributors to undercut VistaPrint and still make a margin.

The Pen Warehouse has developed a number of ground-breaking new services and products to offer distributors more product choice, a competitive price point and no minimum order quantities through the No-Minimum trade website.

Investment in new technology has enabled the company to offer exclusive products with unsurpassed print quality, while staff development has helped to create an award-winning customer service team.

Managing Director Neil Cleere said: “We’re thrilled to be named Supplier of the Year once again and would like to thank everyone who voted for us. We recognise the pressures faced by distributors in light of increased competition from on-line retailers, and will continue to develop exclusive products and innovative services in 2015.”

The Pen Warehouse is a family firm which designs and supplies an extensive range of writing instruments and offers Europe’s largest range of full colour promotional pens, pencils and accessories. It is one of the few trade only suppliers to offer exclusive products designed in-house, providing a point of difference for distributors of promotional writing instruments.
