Exclusively from wcm+a
Welcome to our brand new range of bamboo badges, merchandise & awards. See what happens when the world’s most sustainable material meets the UK’s most sustainable merchandise manufacturer.
Responsibly sourced & certified material is transformed in our UK factory into a wide range of attractive corporate and promotional products in short lead times, with bespoke options available.
All the items we offer are designed, printed and manufactured in our 17000 sq feet factory in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside where we employ over 60 people.
No production element is farmed out to 3rd parties. We are a true British manufacturer rather than an importer and decorator and all of the sheet materials we make our products from we hold huge stocks of, ensuring continuous supply.
Many of the products we manufacture are unique to us in the UK, so only available through our professional trade distributors. A structured product development programme ensures new, high quality British manufactured products are introduced every year, with 2020 seeing our biggest innovation yet with this whole new range of beautiful bamboo badges, merchandise and awards.
Please ask for our MOSO® bamboo product information leaflet for full details on this wonderful material and it’s genuine eco credentials.
MOSO® bamboo certifications
Not all bamboo is the same and just saying something is made from bamboo does not necessarily make it eco - far from it.
Which type of bamboo plant is used and has the bamboo been responsibly harvested at the right time from a sustainable plantation? What chemicals or polymers might be mixed in with it during production? What sort of adhesives were used potentially giving off harmful emissions? There are actually all sorts of questions people should be asking about any bamboo product.
After an awful lot of research, tests and visits to suppliers to check out their claims, there was only one source that ticked all of the boxes for us - MOSO® bamboo.
All MOSO® material is made in production facilities that are ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental third party certified and complies with the most stringent international standards.
All adhesives used by MOSO® easily meet the very strict E1 class following the EN 717 standard with respect to formaldehyde emissions and all MOSO®’s solid bamboo materials are proven and certified to be carbon neutral or better over their full life cycle - full details on request.
MOSO® bamboo as a material combines the virtues of hardwoods (hardness, looks, stability) with the immense growing capacity of the highly renewable giant moso bamboo species and can therefore act as a green carbon negative alternative material.
Great ink adhesion for printing, with little colour change on process print. Great to laser engrave producing good contrast.
3mm and 5mm thick material laser cuts well with less edge charring than hardwoods, which is great for badges, coasters, keyrings and other merchandise. Material up to 30mm thick can be CNC routed to bespoke shapes, producing wonderfully unique awards, while the thicker 40mm material and 58mm square section columns not only look great but have the weight and feel to them of something truly special.
There is certainly cheaper bamboo material out there that people use, but none other actually combines the beauty of the finished product with eco credentials from properly conducted scientific tests and reports to internationally accepted standards.
British manufactured MOSO® bamboo products, a perfectly natural choice.
