Keylime Creative, now known as Keylime Design, was founded by Kathryn Shayler, a talented graphic artist back in 2014. The company is based in Bath, Somerset, which is one of the most beautiful cities in the United Kingdom. They design beautiful hand-crafted gifts such as prints, cards, and textiles.
Some Background Information about Kathryn
Kathryn studied graphic design at St. Martins School of Art in London. Once she finished her course, she got a job working for a company that specialized in creating corporate branding. She learnt a lot during her time with this company, but she wanted to open up her own business that dealt with something close to her heart than corporate companies – animals.
In 2014, while still working for the aforementioned corporate branding company, Kathryn started to make cushions for her friends and family members featuring their pets. Eventually, she quit her job with the company, and set up Keylime Creative.
Nothing Less Than Top Quality
Kathryn and her small team are fully aware that their customers are spending their hard-earned money when they decide to shop with them. Therefore, they ensure that they send nothing but top-quality products to anyone who has placed an order.
To make sure that this is always the case, they will only use quality cotton and linen fabrics when making their products, while all of the other materials that are required are sourced from companies who have the same ethos as Keylime Creative. Furthermore, Kathryn is very particular when it comes to choosing her staff members. She will only hire those who are clearly talented at what they do and insist on providing customers with nothing but quality products.
If you ever have a problem with a product that you received from them, please do not hesitate to get in touch with them. They are always more than willing to speak to unsatisfied customers and come to some sort of agreement. At the end of the day, the only time that they will be truly happy with the work that they have done is when you, the customer, are truly happy with the work that they have provided.
Their most popular orders are cards, cushions, pet accessories, and prints with some sort of animal theme. They create products using the more popular breeds of cats and dogs and every design is put together lovingly making use of illustrative techniques and photographic references that have been developed in-house. The animals on their products usually come with some sort of additional item to give them more charm, personality, and appeal.
Of course, if you want a personalized product, they will be more than happy to make one for you. All you will have to do is send them a picture of your pet (or whatever you want put onto a card or cushion etc.) and they will provide you with a fantastic product that you will be really proud of.
They Are Continually Growing
When Kathryn first created the company, she mostly worked alone because she only got a couple of orders a week. This was something that she could cope with by herself. However, as the months wore on, she found herself being bogged down by the amount of work that she had to do. She then asked her close friend to help her out, which was something she was very willing to do.
After 9 months, there was too much work for the both of them to cope with, so she got two new employees in. The company is still going from strength to strength and there are now seven people working for Keylime Creative.
In the future, Kathryn wants the business to start making items such as t-towels, aprons, and tablecloths, meaning that she is likely going to have to hire more staff. Her ambition is great and we are certain that you will think that their products are just as great.
