At The Extra Step, our branded promotional gifts, clothing and workwear, desk and office accessories, and wellness items – plus much more besides - have been delighting customers up and down the UK for almost 20 years, helping to keep their brands visible, recognisable, and memorable.

And whilst we pride ourselves on our in-depth knowledge of printing, embroidery and branding processes, we understand that the only details that matter to you – the customer – are quality, brand alignment, reliable execution and delivery, and value for money.

Our extensive sales, marketing and customer service experience means we never forget this – and it’s why we’re still working with many of the same customers today as when we first started the business 20 years ago.

Is Brexit making you think more about sourcing your promotional items from UK manufacturers? You’re in the right place! We’re proud to offer a growing British-made range featuring everything from bags to sports bottles, lanyards to stationery, and more – with no import headaches!

We’re called The Extra Step for a reason: we consistently go that bit further than the rest.

•    You’ll see this in our environmentally conscious eco and recycled products range.

•    You’ll see it in our UK-manufactured branded merchandise.

•    You’ll see it in our easy-to-navigate product categories, too,  which always enable you to find something to suit your brand and appeal to your audience – from Branding and Display, to Executive Accessories, to Outdoors Activities, and everything in between!

And you’ll see it in the friendly, accessible way we deal with you, simplifying the process to ensure that your promotional items are delivered on-brand, on schedule, on budget – painlessly and right first time.



An individual, personal service

You can choose your branded promotional products from our website and brochures, of course, but we can also work with you directly to understand your exact brief in detail - target audience, budget, schedule – and produce visuals that make it easy for you to choose the option that is just right for your brand.

Extensive, stand-out choice

You want your promotional items to stand out from those of your competitors – so whilst our customers love our pens, mugs, and torches, why not take that extra step with us and go for more unusual choices like branded timepieces, leather merchandise, or silver goods?

Proactive support and planning

We’re a comprehensive service, not just a channel for branded products. Share your event and campaign details with us and we’ll work with you proactively to develop new branding ideas, plan their execution and ensure their delivery, and support you throughout.

UK-based service

We are a UK business based in Bedford, and for almost 20 years have served businesses in the local area as well as across the UK. We actively promote UK-manufactured promotional merchandise, enabling both you and us to support British businesses.



You can order and pay for many items directly from this website, and this process also enables you to upload branding artwork and specify personalisation where required.

However, for some items we need you to contact us – just click on the Enquiry button below the item and fill in some brief information, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.



If you need further help or information, or would like to request a quote, you can call us on 01234 344317, or send us a message using our contact form, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
