Allwag Promotions was set up by Angela and Alan Wagstaff in 1999, drawing on Alan’s extensive print and product knowledge, and Angela’s background in working with large high-profile organisations. Her career as a marketing consultant enabled Angela to understand the pressures teams are under and that they need a fast, creative response.
Both directors are still very much hands-on and customer facing. Angela is constantly developing our portfolio of quality products to make sure customers can buy traditional favourites as well as more innovative products.
Angela is a director and vice-chair of the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA), with particular responsibility for the industry’s education programme. Not only does the role endorse our knowledge and approach, it gives our clients reassurance that everything we do is professional, transparent, and in line with industry standards.
Based in Essex, we have expanded year-on-year since we set up. Our success comes from our enthusiasm for satisfying customers' needs, taking pride in what we do, but making sure we have fun at the same time!Clients range from small businesses, who make one-off purchases, to large high-profile corporates, leading universities, and government organisations throughout the UK, whose accounts we manage. Our growth and success since we started in 1999 is the result of our constant innovation and great customer service, leading to repeat business and referrals.
We build excellent relationships with clients based on trust and reliability. Working with clients rather than simply for them, we make sure we are their supplier of choice every time.
We are one of very few promotional merchandise companies with an in-house design team. It adds real value for our clients because we become a true extension of their marketing and communication teams, working within branding guidelines, formatting artwork and developing fresh new concepts.
And because we have our own machinery, you can order very small quantities of products – even single items in some cases, with next day delivery.
It’s easy for us to mock-up items too so you can see what your branded products and clothing will look like before you commit to an order.
