Hello, I’m Paul and with Michele (my gorgeous wife) we are the owners of Promotional Fings.
I started in the promotional product industry in 1997 as a buyer for a design agency.
Then finding I had a ‘geeky’ thing for pens (I know, very sad), I started my own promotional products business, Fings, in 2003. I moved back to Buxton, Derbyshire (about 25 miles from Manchester, Sheffield and Derby) in 2004. Michele and I have worked together since 2006 (apart from when two little baby girls called of course).
As well as my unhealthy pen obsession I’m a proud daddy to both Isabella and Jemima, who love nothing more than playing princesses or ballet dancing with their daddy.
Hi, I’m Michele and own the other half of Promotional Fings.
I started working in the promotional industry in 2002 as a Sales Rep covering England and Ireland. Paul and I met through work in 2004 and it made sense to work together when we married as Paul had already set up the Promotional Products Business when I moved from London to Buxton.
We’ve worked together 8 years (minus a couple of years when I had our two little girls) and I still enjoy working with promotional products. It’s a real buzz when a customer is happy with how their logo has been printed on one of our products.
Time off is spent at the gym (for a bit of me time) or with Isabella and Jemima doing things I’d never have imagined I’d like doing like visiting farms, play centres and even swimming.
