About the project

This is the spoon that started it all off.  

We'd been stamping vintage cutlery for a while but decided one afternoon to experiment with various fonts, design stamps and techniques. This is what we made.  By the level of response we recieved, to this very first photo we knew we had hit on something special. Hand stamping has been around for a very long time in the US and more recently in the UK, but to our knowledge we are the first to combine art and words in this way on preloved EPNS cutlery that would otherwise end up in landfill.In 2015 we launched a limited collection of eight art-designs. This range has proved to be very popular and as a result we have been accepted to sell via a very prestigious website. However to do so,we need to improve our photography to make our products clearer and more attractive to our potential audience. We need training and equipment to assist us with this.  In addition  to sustain interest  in our products we need to extend our ranges. To do so we require new fonts, art stamps, custom art stamps and tools.

 

In return for your investment in us, we hope to continue to support local businesses to develop ranges that can really showcase our skills and which will put us firmly on the map in 2016/2017.
