AntiBug – Protect Your Merchandise

AntiBug – Protect Your Merchandise

Now, we are sure you are all aware of how quickly germs spread, especially in the current climate. With this in mind, our certified AntiBug  products are here to keep germs at bay.

AntiBug Mugs

THE FACTS…

What is AntiBug? Well, it is a unique treatment that is added to the top surface of any products in order to fight off germs as soon as they come into contact. Through vigorous trials and tests, it has been proven that this additive kills 99.9% of harmful bacteria within a 24 hour period! Sounds impressive, right?

AntiBug-Coaster

 

HOW IT WORKS…

Antimicrobials are added to the product during the manufacturing process. The silver ions are focused on the surface of the product as that is where contact will occur. These silver ions then clinically bind to the bacteria and damage their cells, therefore stopping them from growing and reproducing. Hoorah!

Thermal-Bottle-AntiBug

OUR ANTIBUG PRODUCT RANGE…

  • Mousemats
  • Coasters
  • Drinking Mugs
  • Thermal Bottles
  • Wrist Rests
  • Drinking Glasses
  • Aluminium Sports Bottles
  • Thermal Flasks

Plus many more!

Christmas Shutdown 2020

  Merry Christmas image Impamark Logo  

Impamark Christmas Shutdown 2020

Impamark will be closed from:
Tuesday 22nd December at 5.00 p.m.
until Monday 4th January at 09.00 a.m.


As 2020 draws to a close we reflect on what has been an unprecedented year for us all.

Impamark worked continuously throughout the lockdowns.

Through our existing supply chains in UK, Europe and the Far East, we were able to provide much needed PPE to Hospices, Care Homes, Councils, Schools and Organisations.

PPE

Captain Tom Donation

We built a new PPE Website back in April and have made several donations of masks, aprons, gloves and sanitiser dispensers to support those who need it.

In addition we have also contributed to the Captain Tom Foundation by donating from hand sanitiser sales.


Who could have possibly anticipated that our top selling promotional product for 2020 would be a reusable face mask? We have sold tens of thousands!

One of our favourite orders was for The British Wildlife Trust and the masks we produced for them were featured in the Daily Mail as worn by Dame Judi Dench!

Holly Award

In March, literally as we went into lockdown, we had the best news ever that Holly had passed her Level 3 NVQ in Business and Administration with distinction!
We are extremely proud of Holly’s achievements in the past 3 years she has been with us.

With Covid the company re-organised itself and Holly now has a new digital marketing role. Not only does she manage all of our social media channels, she has been instrumental in building both the PPE website, and upgrading our new specialist site for the Armed Forces !!


We would like to remind you that Chinese New Year, (CNY) is 12th February 2021 which will mean that orders for delivery pre CNY will need to be placed before 8th January.

Any orders placed after this date will not be delivered until some time in March.

Brexit

At the time of writing we still do not know the effect that Brexit will have on our Industry.

We are working with all of our suppliers to try and ensure there is minimum possible disruption so that we can still deliver our high standards of service that you expect.

From our discussions, we do not anticipate there being any major changes with our Far Eastern suppliers, with the possible exception of delays in ports due to stockpiling and COVID.

Our UK suppliers will also remain largely unaffected as long as they can obtain the basic stock.

However, our European suppliers may be another story, and we will have to report back on this once we know for definite whether we have a deal or not.


We are not sending any Christmas gifts this year. We have chosen to donate to a local food bank instead. The Dengie Food Pantry are working tirelessly over the Festive period to ensure the local community have the food they need to support their families.

On behalf of the Impamark team I would like to thank you for your continued support throughout 2020 in what has been an extremely difficult year.

We wish you a great festive season and best wishes for 2021. Let’s hope that next year is a little calmer for us all!!

Nicky & the Team


Merry Christmas from all of the team

Meet The Team

The Impamark Team

Get to know us!

Have you dealt with Impamark before or are you a complete newbie to us? Whichever the answer, do not fear! We thought we would do a quick introduction to each of the team so you can put a face to a name. After all, it’s hard to imagine what someone looks like just from one phonecall, right?

Nicky – Managing Director

Nicky-MDNicky has been the Managing Director of Impamark for over 30 years and is based over in our Spanish office. She took over the business after her parents retired back in 2006. With her years of experience in the promotional merchandise industry, she is always on hand to offer expert advice to both customers and the rest of the team.

Nicky’s favourite promo item is anything Bamboo related. Bamboo has fast growing properties and due to its longevity, can be regenerated to create products that do not place a strain on the environment.

Outside of work, Nicky enjoys being in the water. From swimming to snorkelling, she’ll never be far from the sea or her pool! She also enjoys travelling and exploring new places, not to forget a spot of wine tasting along the way!

John – IT & Technical Support Manager

John

John is our IT and Technical Support Manager and has been working for Impamark for 17 years. He, like Nicky, is based over in our Spanish office. Thankfully for us in the UK office, it does not stop him from overseeing and sorting our IT issues remotely!

John has a few favourite promotional items. One that has to be mentioned is any type of Mug as he is the biggest coffee lover you’ll find! As well as drinkware, he is an avid Tech fan and loves any gadgets he can get his hands on.

When not working, John enjoys sailing, open source coding, and anything to do with computers. Oh, and loves a glass of wine!

Denise – Sales Account Executive

Denise

Denise is one of our knowledgable and enthusiastic Sales Account Executives. She is the final member of the team to be based in the Spanish Office and has been working for the company for just over 3 years. She is primarily in charge of our army and regimental clients.

Her favourite promotional item is a Thermal Cup. They are just so handy! Running late to work and no time finish your morning tea? Drink it on your journey. Heading out for a long walk on a Sunday afternoon? Fill it with some water and you are good to go!

Outside of work, Denise enjoys taking local trips and exploring new places. She also has 4 dogs (yes, 4 dogs!)  to keep her busy so you’ll find her in the countryside walking with them or her friends.

Cathy – Sales & Finance Manager

Cathy

Cathy is our Sales and Finance Manager. She is based in the UK office and has been a part of the team for 4 years. She is in charge of all things finance so if you have an accounts query or question, Cathy will be there to help! As well as this, she also manages some of her own key accounts.

Her favourite promotional item is an Umbrella. She loves how versatile they can be! From the choice of handles, colours and funky features, there is something for everyone and all budgets.

When Cathy is away from her desk, she is heavily involved in a local Amateur Dramatics group which she is infact Chairman of. Come the evening, she enjoys being in her hot tub with her favourite glass of wine. Lucky for some!

Ian – UK Sales Account Executive

Ian

Ian is another one of our helpful Sales Executives. He is also based in our UK Office in Essex and has been working for Impamark for just over 3 years. If he is not at his desk, he will be out on the road seeing new and existing clients to help their brand stand out! He also represents the company at networking events and exhibitions.

His favourite promotional item is anything tech or gadgets. From Wireless Powerbanks to LED Charging Cables, there is always something new and innovative coming out!

When Ian is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family and going on holidays. He has a 4 year old daughter who keeps him on his toes so as you can imagine, there is never a boring moment!

Holly – Digital Marketing & Sales Support Executive

holly

The final member of the team is Holly and she’s our Digital Marketing and Sales Support Executive. Based in our UK office, she’s been working for Impamark for 3 years. Her role is to ensure the company has an excellent online presence as well as helping with day to day support and admin jobs within the company.

Her favourite promotional item is a reusable bottle. There’s never a day where she won’t have one on her desk! Not only does using her reusable bottle keep her hydrated but it also helps to reduce her plastic consumption.

When she is not working, she enjoys going to concerts and music festivals with her friends. She also loves going on mini city breaks and exploring new places (with her reusable water bottle, obviously!)

COVID 19 Update 23rd March

Covid-19 – we are always here to help you

20th March 2020

The UK Chief Medical Officers have recently raised the risk to the public from moderate to high

It has left many wondering how to keep up contact with their customers and prevent their sales pipeline from becoming as empty as the toilet roll shelves

We are sure that many of you are struggling with the current crisis and we wanted you to know that we will do all we can to help

There are clearly no short term fixes and we are all going to have to get used to new working practices

What are Impamark doing about it?

  Cat Yawning on laptop  

Our staff have always had the ability to work remotely. With two offices in two different countries we have always been well prepared for this type of eventuality

Social distancing is forcing people to look at how they can now market their products and services in new and novel ways. In difficult economic times it is particularly important to keep your name in the forefront of peoples’ minds

Online chat

We have used an internal chat system for a long time and you can reach us directly for a chat via the Livechat on our website

Please look at the bottom right hand corner of our website for the Rocket.Chat Livechat icon:

Rocket Logo

Or go directly to https://chat.impamark.co.uk/livechat

Video meetings

We recognise that visits to clients are now impractical and we are looking at using more videoconferencing for ‘face to face’ meetings

You can request a video conference via the livechat if you want to talk to us face to face!

Direct access to view orders

You can also login and check your Order Status, Invoices and other information in our Contact management system. Please ask for details

Our main phone number is still 01621 782550 but we also have a secondary number which is completely VOIP and goes to everyone: 01621 834980

New products and ideas

Challenging and changing times call for innovative ideas

Although some clients will tragically have major issues, we know that that a large section of the economy needs to keep working, and will do so

For instance schools may have their sites closed, but they still need to be able to communicate with their students. Councils and other public services still need to communicate with the public, particularly with the elderly who may have no internet connection

We are working hard with our suppliers to think of new products, ideas, and methods for the changing times and will be providing information in due course

Keep safe and well

Nicky Crisp

Managing Director
