Support a 16 year old entrepreneur build a start-up design company


Rhys McArdle Designs is a start-up design company specialising in paper-based goods including greeting cards and stationery. Established in the Summer of 2014 by 16 year old entrepreneur Rhys McArdle, they are gradually being stocked in independent retailers across the UK and parts of Europe, Canada and USA. 2016 will bring many new opportunities for Rhys's brand to expand heavily including being stocked in High Street retailers, but we need your support to raise funds for our expansion manufacturing processes.


What do we need the money for?

Our aim is to raise £3000 within our Crowdfunding campaign to support our expansion processes to be able to manufacture and improve our ranges of greeting cards and to create new ranges including notebooks, giftware and stationery.


How will we expand?

Over 2016, we will be expanding heavily with a large concentration on promotion. Rhys will be featured in worldwide press coverage and will be creating distribution networks worldwide to ensure that our products can be stocked in stores throughout the world. To support charities close to our heart, we will be creating Charity Christmas cards and percentages of sales of products donated to various charities throughout the year.

Thank you very much for supporting my Crowdfunding campaign, it is greatly appreciated. I have always had an entrepreneurial flair that I knew would turn into something one day, and I decided to establish Rhys McArdle Designs when I was 15. I have every faith that my business will succeed and very much look forward to seeing my brand grow by the day. I do hope that you like the products that you will receive, and please feel free to e-mail me any time at Rhys.mcardle@frederickandcogifts.co.uk - it would be great to hear from you! Feedback is always very much appreciated.
