About us

Who are M-four?

To put it simply we are a small team with over 35 years of experience between us. We are part of one of the UK’s largest buying groups and we only work with trusted promotional merchandise suppliers. We do not just sell products; we provide a tailored service that takes the hassle and time out of buying promotional merchandise. We adapt, in order to work within YOUR approach and methodology – with the aim of making YOUR business life that little bit easier.

With each order we ensure that we fully understand your brief, your marketing objectives, your customer profile and with our extensive knowledge of the market can then recommend products we know will work for you and your brand. We will work with you at all stages, from enquiry and concept through to the handling of the artwork and the final delivery of the order.

 

Our team is what makes us great! Meet them all below:
