Francesca & Emma
Tell us about your business and the type of products you sell?
We initially started off making Personalised Name Stamps for naming school uniform. We have been trading since 2011 and as we have grown we have expanded our products to now sell a range of craft and wedding stamps. We also sell Back To School products.
How did you come up with the idea and what motivated you to go for it?
We came up with the idea because we HATE sewing and ironing labels into our kids school uniform!
What is your best selling product?
Our Personalised Name Stamps are our best selling product and we have sold to over 125,000 customers around the world!
What do you love about running your own business and what do you find hard?
Love not having to commute and being able to set my own working hours. Flip side is I find it hard to switch off.
What has been a particular highlight for you since starting your business?
Being invited to attend the Peak B Event at the House of Lords for being featured in the Top 100 female entrepreneurs.
What’s next for your business?
Focus on our international sales.
What advice would you give someone who was thinking about setting up their own business?
Don’t put off starting your business. Just go for it.
What is your favourite Social Media platform and how has it helped in your success?
Used to be Facebook but I have recently fallen in love with Instagram and love doing stories. I think the stories help show that there are real people behind our brand and we are not a massive company!
What was your dream job growing up?
I wanted to be a barrister (I did become one, but after all that it wasn’t for me)
Tell us 3 facts about you…
- I have recently started playing in a netball team again and love it.
- I volunteered and work for a law firm in the US for 6 weeks representing people on death row.
- I was a raver back in the day.
What do you enjoy most about being a part of Mama Tribe?
Meeting up with other business owners and hearing about their fab businesses.
