Award Winning PhotoFairytales!

Eek, it's been an embarrassingly long time between posts! I do have an excuse though: behind the scenes I'm working on a major relaunch of the website. An exciting new look, exciting new products, and an easier way to browse and view. It's turned into a gargantuan project that I'm working on every spare minute, but I'm hoping to have a launch date (and lots of great offers and giveaways) for you soon!

In the meantime, I have fabulous news to share with you...

Last year I was overjoyed to be awarded the winner of 'Best for Personalised Handmade Gifts 2018' by SME News.

Well, this year I'm the winner of not one, but two amazing awards!

I've known about this for a little while now, but because the news was embargoed to the press I wasn't allowed to tell anyone and have had to sit on my hands: but now I'm allowed to yell it from the rooftops - and wave my hands excitedly too!!

PhotoFairytales has been awarded: 

'Best Personalised Gifts Company 2019 - East Anglia' 
'Sustained Excellence for Personalised Handmade Gifts 2019'. 

How about that - pretty darn amazing, eh?!

The annual UK Enterprise Awards celebrate various business industries from all across the United Kingdom. With the Brexit deadline looming, and with it all the uncertainty that the business world is feeling, the awards are an opportunity to celebrate strong, vibrant and diverse businesses that year upon year develop and grow their products and services to befit its new audience and situation. This is something that I constantly strive to do with PhotoFairytales: bringing fresh new products and designs, and continuously developing and working on making the business the best it can possibly be. That's also why I'm working so hard to revamp the website - it's so vital to refresh and stay current, especially during these increasingly hard trading times for retail.

There have been tough times on the high street over the past year, with many household names sinking and either closing branches or shutting for good. It's a worrying time, but also a time for thinking of a new way to approach things. Every problem is just an opportunity, right?!

Jessie Wilson, Award Coordinator for SME News discusses the success of this year’s programme: “The United Kingdom, as a business community, is renowned for its ability to thrive in diverse conditions and time of economic uncertainly. It is for this reason that we celebrate and showcase some of the UK’s strongest, most innovative businesses and business owners! Well done to all my deserving winners, it has been a true honour to showcase the dedication you show to your clients and your business. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.”

Of course, none of this would be possible without the continued support from my lovely customers. Your loyalty over the last 10 years (10 years, how about that?!!) is phenomenal. So, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you: whether you're a new customer, an old customer, a regular/occasional/one off customer - a big, heartfelt thank you to you. And yes, I really do a happy dance whenever an order comes in - it might sound daft, but every single order makes a difference to me and my little family. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Sniff... feeling a bit emotional now!
