I would like to introduce you to us, Team Stag. We are: Christina, Dan, James, Julie, Liam, Nick and Ruaridh. There are two other Very Important team members: Archie and Max. You may have seen them on Instagram and Facebook. They are there to be (in no particular order); entertainers, door bells, exercise gurus, models, help with recycling and relaxation advisors.
We are based in Fife, in Scotland and are lucky enough to be very close to Edinburgh and the sea. Most of us cross the Forth river every day, across one of the bridges. There are three: the rail bridge, the Forth bridge and the Queensferry crossing and are definitely worth a trip to see - the only place in the world where there are three bridges next to each other.
We moved here just over six months ago, just four years since we set up in farm buildings and on a kitchen table. We have grown! Our combined skills are in product design, wood-working, engraving, photography, ergonomics, logistics and very importantly, we feel, to complete the package, customer service.
We are passionate about sustainability (please read our sustainability policies for for more information). This month we are changing yet more of our packaging to be re-usable, recyclable and biodegradable. We use DPD for courier deliveries as they operate a CO2 neutral policy as well as providing full tracking. We like to talk to other like-minded companies to share ideas and Sir David Attenborough is one of our heroes. We have only one planet.
2019 has begun busily. We have large orders for some of our whisky corporate clients. It is exciting to think that our cufflinks, luggage tags, presentation flights, etc, etc made from recycled whisky casks will yet again be heading off to the US, the Far East and all over the UK.
We have also had fun introducing new products for our Valentine’s Day collection. We love that each piece is individual to each couple. Some of these items will be added to our wedding and other gift collections. The personalised jigsaw frames, key ring holders and boozy candles are particularly popular
Speaking of weddings. We love weddings! Our collection of bespoke guestbooks, gifts, decor and accessories is continually being updated and we now have international shipping as an option too. If you are travelling from the UK for a wedding abroad, our jigsaws are brilliant for a fun guestbook that you can take with you as a small package and then return to have them displayed and hung on the wall at home. We will be adding photos sent to us by customers so that you can see how items will be treasured for many years to come. It is a responsibility to make them for you and we take great care. We always welcome enquiries with ideas and for whole wedding packages.
I hope we may see some of you at one of the spring wedding shows. We will be at:
Glasgow - SEC - Scottish Wedding Fair, 23-24th February
Birmingham - NEC - National Wedding Show, 1-3 March
Manchester - EventCity - National Wedding Show, 9-10 March
So, now we have made our introductions, we will be back before too long with stories of people we have met, places we have been and things we have seen.
Take care everyone and do stay in touch!
