About MERCH MONKEY
MAKING BRANDED MERCHANDISE SIMPLE
The only choice in branded Merchandise
Merch Monkey is a leading supplier of branded merchandise and other identity solution products. We have been supplying customers with customized items that are predominantly used to gain brand exposure. For over 10 years the team specialized in personalized wristbands and branded lanyards before branching out further to include even more products. And from there Merch Monkey was born – assisting our customers with bespoke items for music festivals, trade fairs, conferences and daily office use.
The team prides itself on providing a top quality product and service – working with clients on every step of the process. Our website offers information and photos of each product and also allows users to upload their logo to get a live preview of how the item would look when printed. So whether you are looking for a personalized tote bag, a customized pen or a branded lanyard we can certainly assist.
Design Your Own Lanyard

One of our core products at Merch Monkey is the customized lanyard. It is a very popular item and is probably worn by millions of people everyday. The lanyard can be fully customized to include logos and text in full colour. It is ideal for corporate clients who then distribute them to staff who wear them both in the office and also offsite for deliveries or home visits for example. The product has become synonymous with identification and are often purchased together with ID badges, key fobs and other accessories such as buckles and clips. Using our interactive online designer clients can get a live preview of how the lanyard will appear when printed.

Mission, Vision & Values
Below we try to summarise what Merch Monkey is about – how we operate, how we work together and how we achieve our goals. Read on to see what makes us tick and how we take pride in every item we produce.
Our mission is to assist customers with their requirements; not matter how small. We strive to supply top quality products that customers are proud to show with their branding on. Whether it be 100 wristbands for a birthday party, or 10,000 customized tote bags for a conference we do everything to ensure the customer is happy. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising and we ensure that our team put the client at the heart of our operations. Our Merch Monkey mission is to serve the customer and keep them coming back for more.
Our vision for the future is to continue exceeding expectations and growing our customer base through great service and a fantastic product. We already offer several products made from recycled plastic and hope to increase these eco friendly items further as technology improves. Biodegradable solutions for certain products are also in the pipeline as we continue to focus on minimising our impact on the environment.
Our values are similar to that of a family – or a family of monkies! We look after one another in our various production facilities and offices and ensure there is a friendly environment. No day is the same in our line of work and this ensures staff are always kept active. We strongly value long term relationships with our customers and look to build on those through great service and products.
Frequently Asked Questions
While each product has its own production and delivery time – as a general rule of thumb we have 3 types of production time. The fastest (1-3 days) is for plain wristbands and lanyards, or printed tyvek wristbands. The next fastest is 10-12 days and is for other printed wristbands such as fabric, silicone and vinyl, together with customized lanyards. Finally most branded merchandise items have a leadtime of 20-25 days which include setup and delivery to European cities.
Different products have varying minimum quantities – and this depends on each item. Roughly speaking all types of wristbands have a minimum order of 100 units – whether plain or printed. Lanyards have a minimum quantity of 50 units. Branded Merchandise items vary depending on the product and range from 10 to 500. More information can be found on each product page.
Each product has a different price and it depends on factors such as the quantity required and also the print process. For example plain tyvek wristbands start at 5c each, printed tyvek wristbands are 10c each. Both prices reduce for bulk orders over 1,000 units and this is a similar theme for all products. The larger the order the cheaper the unit price. Customized Lanyards start at 2euro each but reduce to just 80c for orders over 500 units. For branded merchandise the price depends on the product, the quantity and also the type of print; example sublimated, silkscreen, embroided, etc.
For best results we always recommend that logos or artworks are sent in vector format. This allows us to print your logo in high resolution and have a sharp finish. Customers are able to upload their logo via our website and get a live preview on screen. Examples of ideal format would be .AI or .EPS. If you do not have these formats speak to our support team who may be able to convert at a small charge.
