Keepsakes and gifts from actual handwriting

About Expressive Gifts

I'm Vicky, and I set up my business in May 2018 to get back to work after having spent a few years as a stay at home parent.  Prior to this, I spent 20 years in finance as a credit manager for various large corporate businesses. 

Over the last few years, I've built up an extensive collection of my son's drawings, scribbles and writing as I couldn't bear to throw any of them away!  One day, I had an idea that I would like to be able to turn these into gifts into something to keep, so the writing and drawings could be seen somewhere, not just kept in a box or pinned to the fridge becoming dog-eared.  

I launched the business, and quickly got orders for many handwriting gifts from all sources.  Many were from sentimental cards and letters from lost relatives, others special greetings for different occasions, and children's handwriting as gifts for parents/grandparents.  Often the work comes from several pieces of writing, that I carefully collate together.  All handwriting is carefully prepared before printing, removing any flaws/smudges and even lines from the original paper.  As the business has grown, the range of products has been extended to provide unique gifts for all recipients and occasions.
