Mark

“I thrive when given a challenge, a design that tests my knowledge and expertise. I enjoy delivering that something special and different for my customers, turning their ideas into a unique finished product that they love.”

Mark is the driving force and creative talent of the team. He has passion, flair and enthusiasm, undertaking all the design, embroidery and print work.  With over 25 years of knowledge and skill as a digitizer, and a former approved Wilcom Software trainer ( even teaching his skills in Kenya ) he knows how to turn any design into an embroidery, from basic text to full banner designs of over 300,000 stitches.  Mark is also experienced in garment printing and design origination, using sublimation, screen print, vinyl, and digital printing methods.

“ My Grandad was my inspiration.  He used to repair industrial sewing machines and first got me interested in the textile industry.  A thirst for knowledge and learning new skills has got me where I am today.  I’m sure my grandad would be proud”

She has an eye for detail, always looking for different ideas and has a passion for excellent customer service.

Our two loving, chilled out, slightly bonkers, Sprockerpoo’s.  Always there for hugs and slobbery doggie kisses they have their own unique way of making us laugh and smile. They love trying out all the doggie products we sell and especially love the ones with their names on.
