Hello, we're The Sticker Factory. We're a family run business based in Suffolk and are lucky enough to have been producing reward and motivation products for our lovely customers for over 20 years. From reward stickers and customised stickers for teachers, to praise pads, personalised reward stickers and more, we have a wide variety of products for all your reward and motivation needs. We're very proud that all our products are designed by us and sourced in the UK. Who better to tell you a little more than our founder and director, Vanessa:
Nearly 21 years ago I was a stay at home Mum with my three children then aged 8, 8, and 3 with a busy teacher husband. One day one of my twins came home with a reward sticker - not the kind I was used to when I was at school which was a gummed star (hopefully gold!) - but something altogether more fancy with a cartoon image and caption. She was very proud, and so was I and it prompted a lovely conversation about why she had received the sticker. I could see how this tiny token of recognition had the ability to build upon her achievement and somehow brighten her whole school day. It almost had magical powers it seemed, but something niggled me. I didn't really like the sticker. The imagery and caption were not very scholastic and the writing was upper case. Now I don't think that took away from the experience, but as an illustrator by profession who was spending her spare time at home to coming to grips with the new technology of computer design (I hadn't until a couple of years prior to this even touched a computer keyboard and my copy of "Macs for Dummies" was getting quite dog-eared) it gave me an idea!
21 years on, that little 8 year old is my 'right hand woman' and general manager at The Sticker Factory, her twin sister is a busy 'A' level teacher and their 'baby' brother is at University. My busy teacher husband is now my busy business partner. We employ a good handful of fantastic staff, all who have been with us for over 12 years, and The Sticker Factory is a very happy place to work.
We've just undergone a huge project to bring us into the 21st Century. Our new website and back office system has absorbed a lot of our energy over the past 12 months but it's been worth it! There's a few wrinkles to iron out but I would have been surprised if there hadn't been.
So as it approaches our 21st birthday, I have been reflecting and looking back through some of our archives. I have been overwhelmed at some of the information it unearthed. I have found customers going back years who have spent their precious budget with us over and over again. Customers like you have helped support our business and allowed us to develop more and more reward and motivation products. On that subject, I am always keen to hear new ideas for products and if you'd like to share your ideas, please to drop us an email or call.
We are very proud of our business ethic. We exclusively use UK printers and manufacturers and are very grateful for the loyalty and dedication of our staff. But there would be no business at all without our customers, so as a sincere "Thank you" to all of our lovely customers, fans and visitors.
Thanks for visiting our website, we look forward to welcoming you back. If you ever have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
