Is Your Brand In Safe Hands!

Showing our credentials!

When buying promotional merchandise it’s important that you work with a reputable and reliable supply chain. Having certain credentials demonstrates a business has been verified by a third party to perform properly and will give you the assurance that your brand is being protected.

Getting accredited is usually a formal process. An agency assesses a firm’s attributes, characteristics, quality and status, checks goods and services and verifies internal procedures, all in accordance with established requirements or standards.

Having the right credentials in business is key, and nowhere more so than in the buying of promotional merchandise worldwide. It’s not just about having boxes to tick on a business tender – rather it gives confidence to customers and prospects that a business is fully fit for purpose, that it operates and sources its products ethically.

Arcadia’s pleased to have good credentials in place – all part of our commitment to providing customers with exciting, imaginative, quality, ethical and appropriate promotional merchandise that’s ideal for any campaign or event, plus excellent service to match.
