A Beautiful Sign was born at a kitchen table by myself Nichola Holtby in 2013.
I have always had a love of beautiful words and inspirational quotes, I adore how one little paragraph can shape a feeling or memory
I had a vision to create high quality signs and gifts at affordable prices and still offer customers the opportunity to purchase a unique and individual product. So with a dream in my head and a very old but very loved engraving machine a beautiful sign was launched and I haven’t looked back since! The business soon outgrew the kitchen table and into our large workshop in Cheshire, but our founding principles which originated there still stand today.
I always believed that there was a gap in the retail market for high quality signs and gifts that customers can purchase knowing that they have had complete input into its creation. We have proven that the demand for personalised products is very high. At A Beautiful Sign we give customers complete control over their purchase. Some prefer to simply personalise one of our existing designs but others have been inspired to create their own designs with messages that are personal to them. We’re here to guide them through the process and offer advice if required.
So if you are looking for something uniquely personal then we are sure to have the ideal gift you are looking for at a beautiful sign
Going from a full time stay at home Mum to running a rapidly growing business can be very tough.
It took a while to be able to balance both my role as a mum to three children (including two teenage girls) and my role as director of a company. I can’t say I have yet discovered the secret to a perfect happy balance but my advise would be to get your children involved and make them feel that it is a family business and they have an important role.
Whether it is my teenagers helping attach ribbons and bows or my younger son helping with packing the post bags I try very hard to make them feel important in the business.
Also always remember what a fantastic role model you are to them!!
