Bespoke Stress Balls – The Ordering Process Made Easy

January 19th, 2015
Made to Order Bespoke stress balls

We can make stress balls in your shape of choice

If you are looking for a unique promotional gift that no competitor will be giving away, then why not think about a quantity of custom made promotional stress balls, made up in the shape of your company logo/mascot.

Custom made stress balls are very personal to a company because they are so personalised. We have many customers who want their own unique gift to giveaway that no other business will have.

However, there are limitations on what shapes can be made into a stress toy. For example; anything that has arms and legs sticking out will not be suitable because they can easily snap off. You have to keep in mind that stress shapes are made from PU foam and are used for squeezing to help release your stress.

Usually, however, we can get around any difficulties by tweaking the design a bit.

How Are made to order stress balls produced?

Once you have placed an order with us we will then email the image and size details to my factory who are based in China.

They will then make the mould using the image and sizes and email us a picture of the mould, which is usually within 2 weeks from when you place an order with us.

Please note at this stage the mould is made of clay so that if there are any changes, we can make them. I have attached a photograph of this process.

Once the mould has been approved, our factory will then make all of the promotional stress relievers and paint them in the colour of your choice. We also print one for your approval before printing the complete order.

Once approved, your bespoke stress balls are on their way.

The Lamy Swift Pen – One Of Lamy’s Top 10 Best Sellers

December 11th, 2014
The Lamy Swift corporate pen in four colours

Write with the Lamy Swift and you’ll be hooked.

If you’ve looked into promotional pens before, you’ve probably seen a low cost version of the Lamy Swift Pen. The copies are made in China and nowhere near the executive corporate pen that the original Lamy Swift is. All you need to do is sit down and write with the Lamy Swift rollerball and you’ll be hooked.

It is with this in mind that I would like to encourage you to give these high quality writing instruments a try. We would be more than happy to arrange for you to see a sample.

So what is so different about the Swift?

Well to start, they are high end writing instruments that are usually given away to a company’s best customers. With a starting price of around £20.00 each printed or engraved, they need to be for someone special.

Giving away promotional gifts like these shows your client’s and employees just how much they mean to you. These are gifts that are used daily for years. Each time they are used, your logo and/or message will be seen, further promoting your brand.

Replacement Lamy refills are easily found on the High Street as Lamy pens are now being sold through some of the UK’s most popular shops such as WHSmith, Selfridges and John Lewis. That said, your customers and employees will be able to write for a long time with the original refill as it has a writing life of over 10,000 metres. That’s one heck of a lot of writing.

In addition to the attractive nib area of the pen, I really love the integrated clip/push safety mechanism (a worldwide patent is held by Lamy for this mechanism so you won’t find it anywhere else.)

Click Here To Order your Lamy Swift Pens here.

When the pen is in use, the clip retracts into the body of the pen so that you can’t accidentally place it in your front pocket, ruining your shirt or jacket. This feature also makes the pen more comfortable to write with. When the tip is retracted, the clip reappears ready for use.

The Lamy Swift promotional pen can be expertly tampo printed or engraved. Engraving looks fantastic. Individual unique names can be engraved on each pen.

As with all Lamy products, all parts of the Swift are manufactured and assembled at the family run Lamy factory in Heidelberg Germany. The pen is manufactured with a valuable palladium coating in matt black, matt blue or anthracite lacquer finish.

Would you like to learn more about this eye-catching and memorable writing instrument? Please contact us on 01642 782455 or click here to go right to the Lamy Swift on our website.

The Lamy Noto Pen – One Of Lamy’s Top 10 Best Sellers

December 10th, 2014
Lamy Noto Promotional Pen

If it’s good enough for Google…

Here’s a bit of logo printing trivia for you. You can’t print the Google logo on promotional products without permission from Google, even if you are promoting your Google Plus page. Only Google can have their logo printed onto merchandise so the above photo says something! If promotional Lamy Noto pens are good enough for one of the world’s most respected and used brands, they may just do wonders for your brand too.

Personally, I love the Lamy Noto pen. These are unique writing instruments with a triangular barrel and built in clip mechanism. Notos are high-quality advertising tools used by many of the world’s biggest brands including Mercedes.

Designed by famous Japanese designer, Naoto Fukasawa and manufactured in house by Lamy in Heidelberg Germany, you are sure to find these Lamy writing instruments excellent value for money. They are priced so that even the smallest companies can promote themselves in a stylish and memorable way.

A Look At Promotional Cruise Ship Stress Balls

September 9th, 2014
Promotional cruise ship stress balls

Smooth sailing. These ship shaped stress relievers are great for promoting educational exchanges.

As stress toys go, promotional cruise ship stress balls certainly have their niche. That said, it’s quite a large niche that needs to be looked at. Here I hope to offer a few ideas from the work we’ve done over the years that may come in handy for you.

It’s of course stating the obvious to say that these ship shaped stress relievers are sold mainly to the travel and leisure industry. They are sold on cruise ships, given away at exhibitions and in travel goodie bags. But what about all the other travel themed promotions?

Rear view of the popular promotional cruise ship stress ball

The back of the ships can also be printed. Contact us for details.

One of our customers decided to send their top sales manager and their family on a one week cruise. Not only that, they also decided to do the same for their top distributor. I can tell you, there was a lot of people competing for that one. The IT firm decided to have a quantity of promotional cruise ship stress balls manufactured in their company purple.

These were printed in white on the side and sent out to their regional offices and also to all their distributors. Some branches received 20 in the post as there were so many possible winners.

Promotional cruise shaped stress balls

Double act. These cruise shaped stress toys look great in numbers.

This not only help promote their brand internally and to their many distributors, but it also really got the competition off to a rocking start.

Another customer – a local travel – agent decided to hand cruise ship stress balls to everyone who entered their office looking for a good holiday. These fun squeezies turned a few heads and even helped steer people towards the idea of a cruise instead of their normal holiday.

One of the great things about these ships is their size and large print area.

Promotional cruise ship shaped stress ball

There is a large print area on both sides as well as the back.

Ship dimentions and print area

One of the great things about the cruise ship shape is that there is such a large print area for your logo and message. You can print on both sides. The print area on each side is 50mm x 40mm. This is much larger than is available on most stress relievers.

We can print both in spot colour or in full colour and we would be happy to assist you with your artwork and typesetting which we do free of charge as part of our service.

The ships are 150mm x 55mm x 40mm, so they are small enough to squeeze but large enough to make a big impact.

Promotional cruise ship stress balls

We have white cruise ships in stock at all time. Express delivery no problem.


We keep cruise ship stress balls in stock at all times. After all, there are so many things you can do with them. Even if you’re not in the position to be giving away a free cruise, you can sure have a nice cruise party for your employees and customers. Ask them to come dressed in cruise attire and let the party begin.

Please note that if you would like your ships printed in full colour or manufactured in a special colour, you need to allow three weeks for delivery.

He sent us a photograph of his truck and we were able to copy it and deliver fantastic looking stress trucks in under 3 weeks.
