We are delighted to have been shortlisted for FOUR industry awards!  We have been shortlisted for two Craft Business awards and two Best of Craft awards.

best sustainable craft company

We are pleased that our ongoing commitment to sustainability has been recognised by being shortlisted for this award.  These are some of the things that we do to help sustainability:

  • 70% of our electricity is generated from the solar panels on our roof
  • Our waste lino and SoftCut are recycled back into the manufacturing process
  • We have phased out plastic packaging, replacing it with recyclable cardboard and biodegradable wrapping
  • Our lino is made from natural ingredients and is biodegradable
  • All our lino products are vegan friendly
  • Our inks are water based and free of toxins
  • All our products are latex free
  • We encourage customers to reuse and upcycle material with our Fabric Lino Printing range

We are thrilled that our newly launched Fabric Lino Printing Kit has already been recognised as a brilliant kit.

Our comprehensive kit contains all the equipment needed to get printing onto fabric, with a RRP of just £31.99.

best childrens craft

Our Block Printing Kit for Kids is a fun way for children to learn about block printing without the need for sharp tools.  Children can use the PrintFoam, roller, ink tray and ink to create posters, pictures, cards, gifts, scrapbooks and more.  RRP £15.99

best british brand

We are a multi-generational family business based in Worcestershire, England.  We make all of our products onsite and our staff all live locally.  We work hard to use other British companies in our supply chain, thereby further contributing to the local economy.

We offer our products to retailers, distributors, schools and other businesses around the globe, and we are proud to fly the flag for British manufacturing.  We also support British art and craft charities by donating stock for workshops, giveaways and to generate income.
