Craft Focus - April/May 2023 (Issue 96)

57 PROFILE How would you advise a retailer who is interested in stocking your products? Our products are loved by card makers and mixed media artists all over the world and we would really like to hear from more retailers. To apply for a trade account, complete the short form on our website and we’ll be in touch soon! What sets you apart from your competitors? I feel what sets us apart is quality and ‘the Visible Image feel’, always striving for perfection, and the teamwork between myself and Helen! We brainstorm and collaborate, and we release designs that are a little different and what we feel are exciting for crafters to use but will also be useful and timeless, to get maximum use from our products. You’ll always find fantastic sentiments and quotes in our stamp sets, and these are carefully designed in what I feel is exactly the right font. Do you visit any trade shows? Do you plan to visit any soon? We don’t have plans to exhibit at any upcoming trade shows but have done so in the past. We loved our visit to Creativation in Phoenix in 2018 and met so many fantastic retailers there. What are you looking forward to most over the next year? I’m looking forward to creating more over the next year with regular live demos and video tutorials, building our YouTube following and just sharing my creativity as much as possible! I love designing our products but I really want to spend more time creating with them. What new products can we expect from you in the future? We’ll continue to release more amazing stamp sets, stencils and dies, and we hope to expand on our product range in 2023 with something new, but I can’t say more than that at the moment!
