It is always nice to hear about us in the press, not to mention when it is local recognition! It really has made my day and such a joy to read such a lovely piece about Illustrate My Name (and myself, pictured above) in this weeks Oxford Times InBusiness Magazine

I have always felt the importance of being acknowledged and recognised locally as a big step in the growth of any business. For Illustrate My Name to get coverage like this will not only tell everybody about the business, but also you get to see the person behind the business; and although lots of hard work is involved in the running of my business, alongside bringing up my two children, it is a huge achievement to be operating such a successful online gift store, making lots of people smile with the beautiful gifts on offer.

I am also extremely proud that I design and produce the illustrated artwork myself, these being the Illustrated Framed Names and Silhouette Art, which are in fact our top seller and how the business began for me. I am also proud how much of the business is based on word of mouth and repeat sales, something which proves we are offering a great service from the actual product ordered to delivery and complete customer satisfaction.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andrew Smith (Business Editor), for such a great coverage - And of course why not take a look at the adorable Christmas Gifts we have on offer, its not too early to start looking for that special present!
