I was a little girl when I first got obsessed with stationery. That love has never gone. My older sister travels for work and always brings back a pen or two from her travels around the world. One of my favourites was a strange looking pen from Utah!
When Printkick, a business and individual promotional stationery supplier got in touch asking if I wanted to review a few items from their range, I couldn’t say no. To be honest it’s great to add some supplies to my stationery pot.
Before we get onto the review here is a little about Printkick.
Printkick – Promotional Merchandise Made Simple
So who are Printkick?
Well they are a small family business, that has been working in the print industry for about 20 years. Recently in April they went through a rebrand and came up with a completely different way of ordering promotional items and material than the rest of the market. What makes them different is that they provide live pricing. This means you get an instant price for your unique items. They also provide quick lead times and offer a low minimum order quantity, so you are not lumbered with unwanted promotional items. They mainly specialise in drinkware and umbrellas but have recently expanded with a new stationery range, (which we are looking at today) and a vast variety of products from their partner supplier.
What we received
- 5 highlighters in a container
- Recycled material notebook
- A4 Conference folder
- Bamboo automatic ball pen
- Funny character head pencil
- Recycled Carton Sticky Notes
- Black Colouring Pencils
- Printkick goody bag
What we thought
5 Highlighters in a container
Highlighters are always handy to have on your desk, This plastic container contains 5 different coloured ones that have clips to clip onto your shirt or pocket. They are great fun and bring colour to your work space.
Funny character head pencil
Who doesn’t love a fun pencil? These wooden funny head pencils come in green or orange. I received the orange one. His arms, legs and hair are red string and gives a bit of fun movement when you are writing.
Recycled Carton Sticky Notes
I adore this house shaped box that contains 300 pieces of recycled paper that you can use to jot your notes down. On the roof are small sticky notes for page reminders. Another great item for your desk. Even better that its made of recycled materials.
Black Colouring Pencils
The black colouring pencils are contained in a compact paper tube box. The set comes with 12 high-quality colouring pencils, and in the top lid of the container a built-in pencil sharpener. These are a classy looking product are ideal for some colouring on the go.
Recycled material notebook & Bamboo automatic ball pen
I adore all the wood and recycled stationery items around at the moment. This ballpoint pen in blue ink is made from Bamboo with polished chrome metal fittings. The notebook is also made from recycled materials. I always feel by using eco-friendly products I’m doing my bit for the environment. The paper in the notebook is of good quality. I love that you can get the bookmark ribbon inside in 5 different colours. There are 96 pages in A6 size sheets.
Printkick goody bag
There are many useful items in the Printkick goody bag. If you are a cat lover it will be a bonus to you. So what’s included? There is a soft touch case, similar to wetsuit material I’d say. It’s the perfect size for keeping an iPad in, which is what we are using it for. The cat image is on one side and a pattern on the other which if you are like me want to colour in!
Inside the bag was a 3 in 1 mouse pad, screen wipe and screen protector. It’s very soft on one side, on the other its got grip for non-slip for the mouse pad. Also in the bag was a red very soft to the touch notebook and a grey pen.
My favourite item is the 3 in 1 charger. It has 3 different adaptors for Apple items, Android and Windows phones. Really useful for us when we have different gadgets at home.
Delivery of the items was very quick and they were well packaged. Printkick has a huge selection of not only stationery but other products as well that can all be branded with your company logo. I know I love the few bits and pieces of stationery I received, and will be popping back to them myself for future purchases.
The Printkick website itself is easy to find your way around, you can honestly get lost for hours browsing through all the menus. I’m loving their eco-friendly products, and hopefully they will include more in the future,
Thanks to Aiden at Printkick for everything to do with this collaboration.
