Product Guide with James Biggin, MD Steel City Marketing 

James’s product of the month: ‘Back to Work’ gifts

With the summer holidays underway and schools planning to welcome back children in September, you may be starting to plan for your return to the workplace, too. What better way to make your team feel excited and happy to be back in the workplace than ‘Back to Work’ gifts branded with your logo? Whether your team are in the office, working from home or even furloughed, branded gifts are a great way to show your appreciation.

For August, my product of the month is a brand-new Steel City offering – The Merchbox. Developed as a result of current working conditions, these boxes allow more versatility than anything else on the market. From standard feature boxes to create your own, you will be spoilt for choice with hundreds of items to choose from. Packed in a customised eco box, the contents are branded, packed and can be sent to one address in bulk or individual address – perfect for the back to workplace transition.


Antibacterial Wiro-Smart pen pouch pad

Hygiene and a COVID-safe environment is an important priority when it comes to making staff feel at ease on their return. At Steel City we can supply a wide range of branded gifts with an antibacterial finish. The antibacterial Wiro-Smart pen pouch pad with Senator Antibac superhit pen offers quality and a large branding area – ideal for the office.


Branded facemasks

With all workplaces still required to maintain social distancing and face coverings now mandatory in all shops and supermarkets, a branded option will not only help to keep your team safe but also act as a brand billboard to others. These reusable and washable two-layered face coverings are made in Sheffield and can be printed on both sides with a bespoke design.


Personalised drinkware

Even though we can’t welcome our staff back with a big hug, the next best thing is a chat over a cuppa! By personalising your staffs’ drinkware with individual names, you are not only helping to combat the spread of germs but also showing you have put thought into making them feel special –  we have plenty of options, styles and price points to choose from!
