First Impressions Count.

First impressions count, so businesses need to ensure that their planning and presentation materials project a professional image.

Diaries are essential planning tools that serve a dual purpose, providing both an invaluable back-up to electronic scheduling systems, and a useful and appreciated business gift idea. When presenting to clients or employees, communication materials need to be clear, easy to use and adaptable to different situations. Universal offers a comprehensive range of products to ensure that whatever you need to plan or communicate – be it an important meeting, the schedule for a crucial project, or the launch of a new product to investors or clients – we can guarantee you will give a professional performance.

Despite the hi-tech world in which we live, diaries are still highly sought after, undoubtedly because they provide a somewhat personal approach to planning, not to mention a reassuring back-up to the many electronic devices we use each day. Whatever your needs, Universal can provide a solution, from slim line pocket versions to executive desktop diaries.

Take your pick from wire or perfect bound options, in day per page or week to view formats, with covers that can incorporate textured surfaces, or faux leather padding. Academic diaries are also on offer, as well as organisers and our Filofax range – in a choice of traditional colours or more fashion-forward shades. You don’t have to go paper-free to be environmentally aware, as our Eco desk diaries demonstrate. Made from 100% recycled paper and using 100% solvent-free, water-based coatings for the cover materials, they will play a part in helping you achieve your ‘green’ ambitions.

Dry Wipe Boards, Notice Boards and Flip Charts.

There are many ways to get your message across, and Universal can provide the products you need to do just that.

Dry wipe or white boards are ideal choices for brain-storming sessions and more informal presentations. We can offer both wall mounted and portable versions, incorporating castors for ease of movement that you can lock down safely when you reach your chosen destination. Added extras can include magnetic surfaces and pen/accessory trays and we can, of course, provide all the other essentials such as marker pens, cleaning sprays and board erasers.

Health and safety information, news and social events are all an important part of employee communication, and we have a range of notice boards that are perfect for flyers and posters. Take your pick from felt or cork surfaces, or enhance the interior decor of your office with our stylish magnetic glass boards or modular square tile system, in a choice of eye-catching colours.

Essential Extras.

To ensure your presentation makes a lasting impression on your audience it’s a good idea to give them something to take away with them. This could be facts and figures to support a sales campaign or notes and tips following a training session. Whatever it is, professional presentation matters here too.

From binding machines and laminators to folders and wallets, we can ensure your information will stay looking good for as long as possible – even when the presentation is just a dim and distant memory!


There are times when only a technological solution will do – so ask yourself, when did you last update your projector?

DLP versions give a smoother, softer image so are best suited to video applications, while LCD models give a sharper and brighter picture, making them perfect for data-heavy presentations. Universal can guide you through the options available and select the best projector for your needs, as well as providing either static or portable screens, with desk-top or floor-based options to choose from.
