StickerKitten is run by Sarah and James from our home in Berkshire in the UK. We started the business in 2016 with the aim of making cute and contemporary papercraft supplies for the UK market. We loved what the American brands had to offer and wanted the same high quality, on-trend products here!
Sarah puts together the themes, colours and product ideas for each collection and James does the artwork based on Sarah’s rather messy sketches. We have a mixture of cute designs (such as Birthday Dinos and Mermaid Treasures), stylish collections (such as Bird Garden) and bold, quirky ranges (like Dala Horse).
We were super happy to be awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the Best Start-Up Category of the Craft Business Awards in February 2018.
My background is in publishing so I love books and any kind of paper! I have been making cards and projects since 2012 and when I was little I used to collect sequins and stickers, so I suppose StickerKitten is just a rather epic extension of that…
My background is in web design and development and I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. At university I drew lots of web comics, and two cute dinosaurs from one of them became the basis for our first range – Birthday Dinos. I designed and built our StickerKitten website and online shop and solve any technical issues that come up.
- The quality of our designs are really important. We work hard to coordinate each collection to make it easy for you to create beautiful projects. It can be a slow process and dozens of designs are discarded that don’t come up to scratch. We want to bring you the very best on-trend goodies to craft with!
- The quality of our products is also really important. Our papers and stamps are manufactured in the UK using some of the best materials available (thick, high quality paper and industry-leading photopolymer stamps). The embellishments that we make ourselves are made with love and care (and sometimes swearing when machines break down) and we check each product carefully to make sure it’s something we ourselves would be delighted with!
- We care about the environment and don’t want to litter the world with plastic. It’s quite a challenge to operate without it though so it will take time but we are slowly working towards making our products more eco friendly. You can read more about it on the Environment page.
- We super duper care about you! Our customers are really important to us – we couldn’t make StickerKitten work without you. We love to hear from you and see your craft projects and just generally get to know you. The craft community is a wonderful one and we love being part of it!
