Today the talking point for #justacardindieweek is 10 things about us: 1. Housenumbers Limited was Established in 2005 by Katherine and Charles Ellis. Daughter Josie joined the team in 2016 and the family business continues to thrive. 2. The number 17 above is a picture of our very first house number which was designed for the family home. Although Katherine and Charles have since moved on, the number is still on the wall at the old house, as perfect as when it was first installed. 3. Our passion is helping people add the finishing touch that will make them smile every time they come home. We have an extensive range of products, but if you have something specific in mind our team will help you to create something exclusive to you! 4. Earlier in 2018 we relocated, more than doubling our space to allow for expansion and larger projects. We continue to supply customers who need ‘just a house number’ and corporate customers with larger orders every week – each order is appreciated by us and makes us smile when it drops into the order system. 5. We have always been based in Dorset. We love the Dorset coastline and this is where you will find us walking at weekends. 6. Speaking of walking, every day we take a break for fresh air and a lunchtime walk with family border terrier Margot. When not out and about at lunch time Margot can be found sitting in the workshop window waiting for the post lady and the courier deliveries. 7. We now offer 9 styles of house numbers from stock at three sizes, and a fully custom service - when the business first opened we offered just the one! 8. As a company we are strongly in favour of independent makers and businesses, which is why we manufacture and source all our product components from the UK In our personal lives we shop local and shop small whenever we can, making ethical choices in our consumerism. 9. We recently started a blog! As well as posting about lettering and architecture, we will also be writing about running a small family business and the challenges that face smaller online companies in an ever-changing and challenging marketplace. 10. We think you should follow the @justacard campaign!
We will be getting behind the @justacard campaign over the next week for #justacardindieweek ! Although we don't sell cards, this is a campaign we can support as a small independent family business. Our 'just a card' is 'just a number': we sell beautiful high end signage but it is the small orders for stainless steel numbers that help us thrive, and our small door numbers start from just £5! Everything we sell is manufactured in the UK, hand finished and packed In-house by our small and dedicated team, to whom we offer fair wages and a happy working environment. About once a month we get accused of not being as fast as Amazon and the reason is - we are not Amazon! But the service we provide goes beyond what big business can offer you. Come to us and a real person will advise you on your order, help you to choose something special just for your home, and take care of your order from start to finish. This is what small creative businesses do well and what we should be shouting about! So in the lead up to Christmas remember to #shopsmall , #shopindependent and follow @justacard
The combination of warm white LEDs and a red brick wall is so welcoming this time of year! Did you know we can produce signs with floating parts for the middle of letter such as a capital 'O'? Just one of the things that give our premium signs that extra wow factor! #housename
