Papillon Promotional Marketing launched in the New Zealand market in 2015.
In our first 2 years we focused solely on delivering a range of custom printed promotional products as we are the exclusive supplier of Bullet Line in New Zealand. We proudly introduced you to an amazing range of 800+ targeted promotional items which we can land in only 12-15 days. Additionally our US stock holding is very comprehensive and our range is constantly updated. We are sure to have what you need and can deliver in a timely fashion.
In addition we are pleased to offer custom printed Latex Balloons and a full range of balloon accessories meaning we are a one stop shop. We also custom print Drink Coasters in traditional coaster board, tissue and paper, a beautiful range of Printed Tissue and Ribbon including single and double edge satin or cotton, Flag Bunting, Jigsaw Puzzles and more.
In March 2017 we were appointed as the exclusive New Zealand distributor for Pioneer Balloon and carry the full range of Qualatex Foil and Latex balloons and accessories. As business grew I went from being a one man band to having my brother Greg join me in 2017. Greg comes from a print background being a Typographer by trade, Mac Operator, designer and all round fabulous guy! Greg is responsible for all our graphics, fliers and communications and he runs the warehouse.
Soon after we were appointed the sole New Zealand distributor for the Five Star Party Co and Alpen Products, both amazing ranges catering for all your Foil and Latex balloon needs along with hospitality items, napkins, partyware, table covers and more. Adding to this Beistle joined the party and we are always on the look out for the next "big" thing. Tuftex was added in 2021and we are expanding the range monthly. We have just been appointed exclusive New Zealand distributor for KALISAN balloons, a beautiful range of plain and printed latex out of Turkey.
April 2021 saw Angela join the team. Angela also comes from a print background and can turn her hand to most things, lucky us.
We are always looking for that new and different item that gives you a point of difference. New items are constantly being made available – please Contact Us if you have a specific or unique item in mind. With over 30 + years experience, we look forward to making your next trade show, product launch, party, event or promotion a success. Papillon Promotional Marketing is not just about great products, dependable delivery and excellent customer service, it’s about customer satisfaction. Our aim is to deliver what you need, when you need it, within budget and without stress.
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
Christa, Angela and Greg
Why work with Papillon Promo?
This is a little about Papillon Promo, my history and background.
I have 30 years experience in the promotional products industry with roles as both a distributor and a supplier.
My introduction to the industry came about when I started helping my parents in their business on a casual basis. I was hooked!
We started out supplying hospitality based products all those years ago in a little villa in Ponsonby. Drink coasters, matches, lighters, calendars and a few printed balloons were all we did. We later moved into the decorator balloon market and things just grew from there.
Mum and Dad have since retired and in 2015 I formed my very own business and look forward to this next chapter in the industry I love.
I have spent many years in support of the promotional industry in a voluntary capacity. Initially I was Chairperson of the New Zealand regional committee of APPA – The Australasian Promotional Products Association. I then followed this as the New Zealand representative on the National Board. I also served a two year term as APPA President, an undertaking which really pushed me outside my comfort zone but proved to be an amazing learning experience and an achievement I can be proud of.
In 2011 I was awarded Life Membership of APPA in 2011, being the first New Zealand woman to be honoured. With my father Lionel having been inducted in 2004 we are also the first father/daughter combination to be awarded.
My passion for this industry hasn’t diminished and I still relish the challenges that are an integral part of this job. The Papillon team look forward to working with you.
