About Us

All of the below brands are owned by Dynamic Image Ltd which was founded in November 2002. Today the company is the market leader in the provision of specialist online digital & mobile trade services and networking trade events to the promotional merchandise industry.

The founding team had over 100 years’ experience as major distributors in the promotional merchandise industry before moving to become a ‘Trade Hub’ providing services and connections to both distributors and suppliers within the industry. The team knows what corporate end user customers expect from promotional merchandise & this is reflected in all of the services that we deliver.
