OUR BRANDED MERCH STORY
It began with a set of headphones…
But they weren’t just a set of headphones; they symbolised the beginning of a change the promotional products industry urgently needed.
Let’s take a trip down memory merch lane…
Ten years ago, our founder, Em, had an idea. Tired of the same cheap promotional merchandise that was pitched to her while she was in marketing roles, she wanted to launch a merch agency like no other. Clicky pens prone to snapping, fidget spinners and latex balloons begone!
The marketing and events industry needed a full-service merch makeover. An agency that helped brands find their perfect merch match. A creative agency that held your hand every step of the way to provide the best branded merchandise solutions for your business.
sourcey.m (AKA Merch Mecca) was born.
And those headsets? The client bloody loved them. Crown Casino, you may have heard of them?
OUR FOUNDERS – EM AND ROB
Working in marketing and events for over 15 years, Em saw lots of promotional JUNK. Feeling increasingly frustrated with the quality of branded merchandise, Em identified a gap in the market.
Inspired to start a promotional products agency that created unique, on-trend, retail-quality branded merchandise (that wouldn’t end up in landfill) Em began sourcing beautiful, sustainable, practical promotional products. That was in 2012. A decade later Em now manages the branded merchandise for some of the world’s most recognisable brands.
Her partner in life (and crime), Rob, joined in 2018. With almost 20 years of trade and customer marketing experience, overseeing some of the world’s biggest FMCG brands, together they are a merch powerhouse. Impressive, much?
Together with their ever-growing team, they work tirelessly to provide their clients with swoon-worthy branded products from their exceptional network of local and international suppliers.
There’s nothing the team can’t source for your amazing brand and grand merch plans. And that’s why sourcey.m is Australia’s favourite branded merchandise agency.
