Welcome, let me start off by telling you a little bit about myself, my vision and why we are here today.
My name is Charlotte and I am the founder of a new start up business called Blaze Ginnifer Cards. My business will provide unique, hand drawn, hand made and quirky greetings cards for all occasions. I want to stand out from the rest and offer an alternative out there. But before I tell you more about what I hope to achieve from this project, let me provide you with a quick background into this business.
How it started
I am a stay at home mum to my son Zane who is now 18 months old. In May of this year me and my husband were blessed with a little sister for Zane who we named Blaze Ginnifer. Unfortunately Blaze passed away at two days old, she had multiple abnormalities caused by a chromosomal condition trisomy 18 (also commonly known as Edward's Syndrome).
Fast forward to today, I knew over the last five months that I wanted to honour Blaze and keep her memory alive. This is where the name was born from.
I want to create hand made cards in Blaze's name. Greetings cards bring all sorts of emotions, some of joy and happiness, some of comfort in hours of sadness. I want to be there for all those occasions.
In order to start this business properly I am in need of some technical equipment and software such as artist pens, paints, card supplies, printers and a computer and
photoshop to be able to edit some of my designs and make my cards go from great to perfection.
My long term vision for the future is there will be a selection of cards which will be created and sold where the profits will go to charity in honour of Blaze. This is something very personal and important to me and a way to give back to all those who helped me in my hour of need.
I have more designs in the protype phase. These will be completed and used on various greeting cards. I think they're cute, they're fun and unique.
