Impamark on the Radio!!!!

That’s right! Due to the unprecedented interest in our Jubilee orders this year, Carol Kean, Sales Manager from Impamark is being interviewed on Ray Clarke’s Breakfast Show on BBC Essex this coming Friday 1st June in time for the Jubilee weekend itself!

Impamark has supplied many Councils, Schools and Organisations across Essex and the UK with commemorative souvenirs including mugs, pens and badges for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Commemorative coins have also been supplied to local councils including Maldon, Burnham on Crouch, Peterborough and Mayland as well as Chelmsford Star CO-OP and Essex Fire & Rescue Service.

Orders still to be produced in this special  year include mugs for Chelmsford Town Twinning,  to commemorate the London Olympic 2012 Torch Relay arriving in Chelmsford on 6th July

Nicky Crisp, Managing Director of Impamark commented “We are delighted to be providing high quality commemorative items to organisations in our local area and we are excited to see them become part of Jubilee and Olympic celebrations across Essex”

Don’t forget to listen in to Ray Clarkes Breakfast Show this coming Friday between 6am and 9am!!


Impamark has seen orders flood in from organisations around the country wanting to commemorate this auspicious occasion with personalised Jubilee merchandise. As a result we have benefited from a greater than expected income over the first half of this year with Jubilee orders alone totalling over £20,000.

Impamark has completed an extensive range of Jubilee orders for a number of local and national organisations and businesses, including HM Armed Forces over the past few months. The largest order the company has received to date was from the The Boy’s Brigade who boast the Queen as their patron. Impamark has produced a range of Jubilee items for the organisation, including pens, china mugs and engraved keyrings which all feature the Boy’s Brigade’s unique Jubilee Logo.

Special Jubilee commemorative coins have proven to be one of the company’s most popular products. Impamark has produced thousands for schools, colleges and nurseries, the Essex Fire and Rescue service as well as local councils, including Maldon, Burnham-on-Crouch, Peterborough and Mayland. These coins will be handed out to individuals involved in these organisations and are sure to be a fitting memento of the Jubilee celebrations.

Impamark has also produced a range of Union Jack merchandise, such as Union Jack lunchboxes, scarves and umbrellas, for the Essex County Council Registration Service for use in special Jubilee Citizenship ceremonies.

Nicky Crisp, Managing Director of Impamark, commented: “We have seen an enormous amount of hype surrounding the Jubilee and the Olympics, and the benefits they would bring to British businesses. Although sadly the Olympics has done no such thing, the Queens Jubilee has presented us with fantastic opportunities and it’s great to see Impamark’s services being used by so many local groups. We are delighted to be providing high quality commemorative items to organisations in our local area and we are excited to see them become part of Jubilee celebrations across Essex.”

Impamark Promotional Show – A Great Success!!

Thanks to everyone both clients and suppliers who attended our promotional merchandise show last week – the feedback has been great! The venue was fantastic and our thanks go to the Manor of Groves Hotel too for making the day so special.

In spite of the dreadful weather (what drought?) the day provided an opportunity to see new and innovative items of merchandise in a relaxed and informal environment.

With an extensive range of personalised products on display, clients were impressed with the range and quality of gift ideas suitable for all occasions.

Richard Taylor from Simpsons Creative gave a highly amusing and informative presentation on the power of branding, enlightening us all with the dos and donts of personalising  products

Initial feedback from attendees has been very positive with all saying they would definitely come again and some said they would encourage others within their organisation to attend as well.

It was generally felt that April was a good time to host such an event being the start of a new financial year so watch this space as you never know we may repeat this event again!

The winner of the prize draw for the overnight accommodation for 2 at the Manor of Groves Hotel was Chris Nolson from Diamond Office.
