Getting Personal

This firm started in 2005 by selling personalised calendars. Today its online gift offerings include everything from personalised mugs and notebooks to £1,500 Formula One driving experience days. Founders John Smith and Giles Harridge sell only online and their profit margins are slim. The Cheshire firm has a number of corporate clients, such as Lloyds and Connaught. The popularity of its personalised and often unusual gifts has led to sales growth of 149% a year from £408,000 in 2006 to £6.3m in 2009.
