A case study with Really Handmade Crafts
At BlankKeyrings of Bamber Bridge we are proud to be the official supplier of Coasters, Keyrings and Mouse Mats to Really Handmade Crafts in Le Bourg Grand Brassac, France, owned by Suzie Pearson.
Fund raising for animal charities
Suzie creates bespoke handmade products to sell and raise money for local animal charities. She uses a range of mixed media including punch cartoons, encaustic wax, iris folding, zentangle, floral stamp designs, abstract alcohol ink and Celtic knots.
She regularly supports Brantôme Police Horses, a local old dogs hospice, a French charity which sterilise feral cats and the French guide dogs for the blind association by donating all the raw materials and her time to the charities. Every centime people donate by purchasing her coasters goes directly to helping the animals.
Unique Limited-Edition Gifts
Suzie believed that there wasn’t anything like our coasters available in rural France. She was introduced to us by a friend and she immediately knew that she could use them. Suzie needed generous insert depth that can accommodate a range of mixed media artwork. She also plans to use our glass coasters to create a more premium product.
She didn’t realise that there was anyone who could provide her with the lower quantities that she required. The individually designed coasters have become a huge success.
“You are brilliant! I deal with many small firms: the craft industry is stuffed full of tiny enterprises. Many of them are very good, dedicated and helpful but you are prepared to deal with such tiny orders and make me feel just as valued as the big boys. The quality of your products is always of the highest. From the speed of service, the careful packaging and the personal touch, you are really superb in every department.”
The coasters bought by Really Handmade Crafts are our CG02 Glass Coasters https://www.blankkeyrings.co.uk/shop/cg02/ and our CS02 Acrylic Square Coasters https://www.blankkeyrings.co.uk/shop/cs02-square-coaster/. Both products hold an 80 x 80 mm insert and are manufactured in the UK, and not shipped halfway around the world.
Suzie has recently expanded her range to include our large Wallet Keyrings https://www.blankkeyrings.co.uk/shop/ia02/ and our insert Mouse Mats https://www.blankkeyrings.co.uk/shop/185x225-qm02-insert-mouse-mat/ to drum up a bit more interest. Our IA02 Wallet Keyring has a generous print area of 51 x 73mm and they also can accommodate deeper mixed media inserts. Our IM02 Mouse Mats show a large, visible 225 x 195 mm insert.
