Amy Beth Designs story

My name is Amy Beth Addison and I created Amy Beth designs in 2014. I have always loved illustration and painting, but it took me a long time to find an outlet I enjoyed painting for. I have also always loved giving cards and receiving them. I get this from my Mum who has a constant supply of hand picked cards for the people in her life.
So I decided to link my love for illustration and greetings cards to make my company. I didn't set out with a particular vision for them, but I signed up to the Princes Trust enterprise programme where I learnt all about business and the reality of it all. I loved that process and the cards came gradually as I imagined selling my product. I did know, however, that I wanted card designs that would make people laugh but also something people would want to keep past their celebration.
I had a trouble finding a printer who would do the printing process for my cards I needed. As its colour on a dark and porous card, there needs to be an initial white layer printed, and not all printers can do this. But through recommendations at the Princes Trust I found the Imagining centre who didn't bat an eyelid.
All the different components for the company slowly came together and I did my first trade show in February 2015. It is still just me in my business but I thankfully have very supportive family and friends so that helps a lot.
