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!

Dame Judy Dench Face Mask

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!!

Merry Christmas from all of the team

Impamark Christmas Shutdown 2019

  Merry Christmas image Impamark Logo  

Impamark Christmas Shutdown 2019

Impamark will be closed Friday 20th December from 1.00 p.m. and reopening Thursday 2nd January at 9.00 a.m.

50th Anniversary LogoAs 2019 draws to a close we reflect on what has been for Impamark a momentous year.

2019 has been the 50th Anniversary of Impamark as a family run business. Currently located at Dammerwick Farm in Burnham on Crouch, the company moved their operations to the town in 1975, and have since been providing promotional products to a wide ranging and prestigious client list. I took over running the company back in 2006 on the retirement of my parents.

2019 Employer of the yearIn November, Impamark were extremely honoured to win the ACL (Adult Community Learning) Essex) Employer of the Year Award for 2019 – what better way to round off celebrations in our 50th Anniversary year as a family business!
We have been working with ACL for several years and we have now partnered with them to train two apprentices. Last year our apprentice Holly was awarded Apprentice of the Year whilst studying for her level 2 NVQ in Business and Administration, and this year she has been awarded Highly Commended for her level 3 NVQ. Impamark are immensely proud of her achievements, both with ACL and her other professional qualifications which she has passed in the 2 years she has been working for us, including her TPM (Trained in Promotional Merchandise) qualification.
Spain 50th CelebrationsWe operate from two bases, the first being in Essex, and for the past 12 years the second being in Spain. The staff all met in Spain in June for our 50th Anniversary celebrations and this is continuing with a further Christmas get together in Spain in December where we will all be attempting to extract ourselves from the ‘Sherlock Holmes versus Moriarty’ escape room!I believe that the reason for the company’s success is down to our great teamwork, extremely high level of customer care, and attention to detail. We have a great team, both in UK and Spain, with a wealth of industry knowledge and experience. I would like to thank our fantastic supplier base and loyal clients, many of whom we have worked with consistently for over 30 years, and look forward to working together for many years to come!
Chinese New Year 2019! Year of the RatWe would like to remind you all that Chinese New Year, (CNY) is 25th January which will mean that orders for delivery pre CNY will need to be placed before 20th December. Any ordered placed in December or early January will be delivered in March. In addition to this, we still do not know the effect of Brexit on the industry. Therefore, we strongly advise everyone to place orders in December and early January for events and requirements occurring in early 2020.

On behalf of the Impamark team I would like to thank you for your continued support throughout 2019 and wish you a very Happy Christmas and Healthy & Prosperous New Year!

Merry Christmas from all of the team

50th Anniversary for Essex based family run business

2019 sees the 50th Anniversary of Impamark as a family run business. Currently located at Dammerwick Farm in Burnham on Crouch, this award winning merchandise company moved their operations to the town in 1975, and have since been providing promotional products to a wide ranging and prestigious client list including University of Aberdeen, Essex Wildlife Trust, Harrow School, University College London, University of St Andrews, Rotary Watches, Scottish Scouts, Sandhurst Trust and Queen’s Club.

Originally started in North West London by David Thurgood in 1969, David and his wife Anne ran the company until their retirement in 2006. Their daughter Nicky Crisp joined the company in 1988, and her husband John in 2001. Nicky took over as Managing Director on the retirement of her parents, and in 2007 Nicky & John set up their second office in Spain where they are currently based.

Nicky commented “Over the years we have supplied commemorative souvenirs for the Royal Wedding in 1981, sponsored the Rugby World Cup in 1991, produced Jubilee Coins to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, and again for her 90th Birthday Celebrations in 2016. With more than 30 years experience supplying the MoD and Armed Forces, Impamark holds an official licence to produce their merchandise”

Impamark has been a member of the Advantage Catalogue Group for several years and has consistently been ranked in the Sourcing City top 25 Distributor of the Year Awards. They have also been accredited members of their Industry Association (BPMA) for over 10 years.

Impamark are extremely well known within Essex for supporting local charities and sponsoring events within the community, and have been Silver Corporate members of Essex Wildlife Trust for several years. In the past 18 months, Impamark has moved to a much more enviro and eco friendly stance internally, together with providing a wide range of eco and environmentally friendly merchandise. In January last year Impamark launched their “Happy Turtle brand”, to reflect this positive change of direction.

In celebration of the momentous 50 year milestone the staff flew to Spain for a weekend to enjoy a relaxing time together, some fun in the sun, and ‘Fiesta’ Spanish style.

Nicky believes that the reason for the company’s success is down to their great teamwork, extremely high level of customer care, and attention to detail. She said “We have a great team, both in UK and Spain, with a wealth of industry knowledge and experience. I would like to thank our fantastic supplier base and loyal clients, many of whom we have worked with consistently for over 20 years, and look forward to working together for many years to come!”
