The Branded Items Group (BIG) is a small multi award-winning, family-owned promotional items and branded merchandise company that is BIG on quality, value and service.

Although only 3 years old, the business already services over 600 customers all over the UK with orders being made as far afield as Germany, Ireland and Scandinavia. With an emphasis on service and being consultative with clients, we are one of the fastest-growing promotional items companies in the UK.

The company is building a strong offline presence in our locality (North West) but now needs expertise to develop its online presence to compete in a very competitive environment.
