Cheeky Little Prints founder, Lisa Berry, is thrilled to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her UK-based business which specialises in personalised paw print jewellery alongside bespoke paw print gifts and keepsakes.
In April 2009 Lisa, then aged 26, who lives Wiltshire, UK took the plunge to launch the company from home. A trained veterinary nurse, she has always loved animals and she set up shop on her kitchen table, working on customer orders, while her children were asleep in bed.
Lisa explains why: “working with people and their pets I got to see first hand just how much we love our furry friends – myself included. Whenever one passed the pain and loss suffered really brought home just how much they meant to their owners. That’s why I came up with the idea of creating these very special mementoes.”
Cheeky Little Prints became one of the first businesses in the UK to make print kits for pet owners to use to put their own pets’ paw prints on paper themselves.
“Over the last decade the business has evolved and really taken off. Just as parents love to capture their children, animal lovers also want to see their pets in personalised items especially paw prints.”
Today the web-based business is still run out of Lisa’s home office. Customer orders come in from all over the world, including the US. What has taken Lisa by surprise is the personal contact pet owners want.
“Every order has a special story behind it and my customers love to share their paw print stories with me. It’s why I’m also launching a gallery on social media and on my website allowing customers the opportunity to show the mementoes they’ve created and to share their pets’ stories.
“After ten years of building the business and running it alongside my family, I’ve now got a good idea about what clients love. It’s why we’ll be expanding the business in the next few months.”
Lisa is also a voice for single parents in business. She faced the personal challenge of going through a divorce while her business was starting out. Now she supports other entrepreneurs facing similar situations.
