I freakin love stationery do you?
Thanks so much for visiting us in our small shiny corner of the web, I really appreciate it. If you would like to know a bit about us, please read on but if not, you just crack on with browsing and get in touch if you have any questions.
So who are we?
The Sarky Cow is a fun and playful stationery based business offering designs that are all personalised with character in mind. From personalised notebooks, to funny and amusing cards, colourful customised pencils to amusing and quirky prints. Established in 2017, the business continues to go from strength to strength and with customers at the heart of everything, the promise is to give you a million, trillion, gazillion percent effort (and never, ever ever to exaggerate).
I love people who love stationery and the inspiration behind our collections is always to provide unique, playful and quirky designs, with quality and detail in mind. I want to provide fun gifts that make people feel special, gifts that are playful, yet practical and all round are just that little bit different than what you find on the high street. You will rarely find something in our shop that others sell, I am not that gal and never will be.
All designs are started from scratch in The Sarky Cow design space and each component is carefully sourced from business’ in the UK, from Brighton to Leeds, Nottingham and Scotland. I am a very loyal buyer and have built up great relationships with my suppliers meaning that your purchase is not only helping my business, but my suppliers too.
Why The Blog?
I know we all buy from the web all the time, it is a way of life now isn’t it? But, I want to give that Bricks and Mortar feeling to The Sarky Cow, I think that comes from my previous life as a retail florist. I really enjoyed engaging with the local community, being part of their most happy times and helping them in their darkest times. It felt good and while I know that relationship isn’t totally possible, I do want you all to know that there is a real person behind this business, someone who actually cares that you love your design, someone who cares if it reaches you on time and someone who altogether gives a damn.
And, with that in mind, I have had some right giggles already with some customers, some have been fantastically understanding when I have made the odd mistake and others who have chewed the fat with me over a similar interest. Some have just said some lovely words after a really tough day and have made me feel so much better without even realising.. so carry on engaging with me please, us online creatives really do need that contact.
On a practical level, I hope to keep people up to date with new products and topics relating to them, new info on business and the direction it is going in. It will be eclectic, but hopefully worth a bit of a read now and again.
Anyway, that’s me and us so thanks so much for visiting. Please get in touch if you have any questions at all, that is what I’m here for…
