SME Export Track 100

Managing director David Field, 55, founded this Colchester stationery and crafts retailer in 2011 after being made redundant. Having begun by selling imported goods from China at local car boot sales, the business now sells branded and own-range products via Amazon, eBay and through its own website. Rapid growth in the US and strong revenues in Europe and Australia boosted international sales to £3.1m in 2019, and it has plans to expand into Japan this year.
