Hello! I am Sarah and own Pencil Me In, an independent Stationery & Card store in Elgin in North East Scotland. I am a stationery addict and this is why I started my company - along with a desire to be my own boss and bring design-led stationery, cards and gifts to the people. We strive to work with as many British designers as possible to encourage as much British manufacturing as possible at a time where mass-produced manufacturing is rife and quality degrades as a result.
Customer experience in store is really important to us, we take time over our layout and merchandising. We want customers to go through a calm and relaxed shopping experience with lots of inspiration around the store. Our stationery table and displays are instantly instagrammable, and we love it when customers talk about us online with photos they've taken in store. "It escapes me now where I first found noissue, but I was encouraged by designs of the work that was produced, the accessibility of the site and ease of being able to order. I had a custom sheet pattern and found the support team easy to work with. The quality of the tissue paper was much higher than I anticipated - so dense it can be used as a normal wrap not just a tissue covering. It's added a certain luxe to our offering especially for our online sales. It also smells great! But the price point was also super good and made it worth the punt."
