How did it all begin?
It all began in the late 1990s when I was a graphic design student in Los Angeles. One of my lecturers ran a letterpress studio where I worked after finishing my studies. I bought my first printing press, an Adana 8×5, after moving to the UK in 1999. Over the years while practising as a graphic designer I continued to design & print invitations and cards for close friends and family. In July 2011 I set up Bobalong and finally realised a long-held dream.
What are your all time favourite product you have produced?
I’m really happy with the bespoke notebooks that I have recently added to my range.
What is your biggest achievement to date?
Being brave enough to set up on my own.
What’s your best-kept secret?
I’m not a secretive person.
What is your dreams/plan for the future?
In March I’m moving into a new studio, The Printhaus in Cardiff. I hope to use the screen-printing facilities there to develop some new products. I also would like to do more bespoke stationery.
Do you have any top tips to help other creative sellers?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. I also find http://renatom.net/ a great resource. Shame she’s not in the UK.
