SME Export Track 100

Sales director Sara Davies, 35, started this Co Durham firm while at university in 2005. Its first product, the Enveloper, was a hand-held device for creating envelopes for home-made cards. It now sells a range of 4,000 craft items through four UK shops, websites, retailers and shopping channel Create and Craft. International sales across 40 countries hit £13.4m in 2018. Last year, it moved to larger premises in California to cope with increased demand from the US. This year will be its fourth appearance on the SME Export Track 100.
