Promotional Merchandise for your Student Union
Promotional Merchandise for your Student Union
On average, only 11% of students choose to vote in their Student Union elections*, and due to the pandemic and remote learning, support for student unions is at its lowest in decades. We believe that student unions are a worthwhile investment for universities and bring students together in a unique way that can’t be done in a classroom. Branded university merchandise improves the sense of community, as well as making a difference to the perceived quality of the university based on these interactions and merchandise**.

Tech Tuesday: USB C ports. What you need to know!
This week we are looking at one of the areas of technology that has been moving rapidly over the last few years, and one which will continue to change many of our gadgets and how we use / interact with them in the future…. The USB-C plug. At first glance, it looks similar to a micro-USB connector, but it is more oval in shape and slightly thicker to accommodate its best feature: flippability (unlike its USB predecessors, it's also flippable—so you don't need to try three times to plug it in).
